Cars On The Silver Screen

Cars can be seen in all types of movies, ranging from comedies to superhero films, but their roles in each movie tend to be different. In some movies, a character without his car would be unthinkable (i.e., Batman without his Batmobile), but in others, the cars are there solely for the eye candy. For other movies, the cars help move the plot along, and are essential. Can you imagine The … [Read more...]

5 Things We Love About The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE #ad

Take Control with the 2017 Mazda CX-5, Zoom Zoom! #DrivingMatters @MazdaUSA #ad

I recently spent a week driving the 2017 Mazda CX-5 Touring.

The 2017 Toyota Rav4 Hybrid, Knows No Limits #DriveToyota

I’ll be honest, when I think of mid-size, SUVs or crossovers that can handle winter conditions here in Michigan, the word Hybrid has never crossed my mind, though the name Toyota sure has. I've had the pleasure of reviewing several vehicles from Toyota over the years, and they never disappoint. I just recently spent a week driving the 2017 Toyota Rav4 Hybrid, and it just so happen to be a week … [Read more...]

Five Things We Love About The Toyota Sienna #DriveToyota

So fancy that Toyota calls the Sienna the "Swagger Wagon", but when I see it, I see a van. A nice, good-looking, modern van, but a van none the less. I've never been a big fan of minivans or vans. In-fact this was my second time ever driving one. Even though it would not be my choice for day-in and day-out, the 2016 Toyota Sienna has a lot of smart and amazing features. Some of which I was pretty … [Read more...]

The 2016 Toyota Avalon, A Family Sedan You Can Get Excited About #DriveToyota

When you think about family size sedans, the first thing that comes to mind is practical. The description doesn't exactly scream excitement. A statement I would have agreed with, until recently when I was asked to drive the 2016 Toyota Avalon for a week to review. With its combination of comfort, quality and performance, the 2016 Toyota Avalon is one of the most impressive cars on the market. I … [Read more...]

Taking on winter in the 2016 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring #DrivingMatters @MazdaUSA #ad

My 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited review #DriveHyundai

I recently spent a week driving the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited for review. My week included daily trips to the office (23 miles each way), taking the kids to a football game, and a family trip to the cider mill.

The 2015 @Toyota Camry XLE, is it worthy of it’s number one position? #DriveToyota #ad

I recently spent a week driving the 2015 Toyota Camry XLE for review. The Camry is America's number one selling car in it's class. I found that a little hard to believe before my review week began, but by the end of the week I was so impressed I was asking "where do I sign". Now, the point of reviewing cars is NOT to be purchasing one, but to share my honest thoughts on the vehicle's design, … [Read more...]

This 2013 Mazda3 is one sexy beast! I recently had the opportunity to drive the Mazda-3 for one full week. To say it was my pleasure would be a major understatement.
