Not A Parent Trap: 2016 Mazda CX-9 Signature Not A Parent Trap: 2016 Mazda CX-9 Signature

I’ve heard it time and time again, “X-Crossover isn’t vehicular punishment”. It’s a statement that is as profoundly annoying as it is painfully stupid. The whole concept of a crossover is to pair the drivability of a car with the functionality of an SUV, and if that’s akin to vehicular punishment, then based of…

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 Brings The Funk & A Lil Bit Of Noise The 2017 Cadillac XT5 Brings The Funk & A Lil Bit Of Noise

Last week I made my way to Dana Point, which despite being just 66.9 miles from my apartment in Venice, took me nine hours to do. The details of my arduous travel day are inconsequential, all that you really need to know is that I went above, and beyond to get there so that I could drive the 2017 Cadillac XT5.

Oppo First Drive: 2016 Nissan Maxima SR Oppo First Drive: 2016 Nissan Maxima SR

As I’ve mentioned in the past I’m a huge fan of the 3rd gen Nissan Maxima, you know the boxy yet somehow ahead of it’s time one. This was the first Maxima to have a 4DSC(Four Door Sports Car) sticker slapped on it and in my opinion the only one worthy of wearing it. The 4th gen Maxima was OK but the bloat had begun…

Well That Was A Kick Ass Year Wasn't It? Well That Was A Kick Ass Year Wasn't It?

So this was a pretty great year for me. Finally got up the courage to start my own automotive blog and start posting my ramblings for all the internet to see. Pretty crazy that people actually liked what I was doing, so much so that I was given the privilege to post to Oppositelock and I have Tom McParland to thank…

I Quite Like the 328I xDrive Wagon I Quite Like the 328I xDrive Wagon

I've spent the past couple days with a 2015 BMW 328i xDrive wagon and I have to say, it has far exceeded my expectations.

It's been said that the best things in life are free and even the most jaded cynics would have to agree that BMW's Ultimate Driving Experience is one of the best things in life.

I Won The 24 Minutes Du Santa Anita & Set A Track Record! I Won The 24 Minutes Du Santa Anita & Set A Track Record!

That's right ya'll, not only did I win the most prestigious event in parking lot motorsports, I set a new track record while doing so! 31.67 seconds, that's all I needed to hustle the 2015 BMW 228i around the ultra challenging auto X course at Santa Anita Park. I'd like to thank Dunkin Donuts for fueling me up proper…

The 2014 Camry Will Make You Suck At Driving The 2014 Camry Will Make You Suck At Driving

"Surely it's not as bad as everyone says it is," I think to myself as I accept the only car left at the rental counter. "The likes of Jalopnik love to dig into a good Camry rant here and there, but it's just low-hanging fruit, right?" Wrong. It really is that bad—and perhaps worse.

What's it like to drive a 700hp prototype supercar in a downpour? What's it like to drive a 700hp prototype supercar in a downpour?

Max Prince has never driven anything quite like this. Its slapdash aero is meant to keep the LS9-powered mule hunkered down, but the airfield is sopping wet. There's no bodywork, because the V8 roadster isn't technically done. Max clears his throat and fires the engine. "Will I survive?" he wonders.

2014 BMW i3 First Drive Review 2014 BMW i3 First Drive Review

The BMW i3 is arguably one of the most important cars the company has ever produced. It also has a lot of brand heritage to live up to. Is the Bavarians' first big push into electric cars worth the hype?

I got to put about 60 miles on my father's new XTS this weekend while he was in Florida doing XTS-buyer things like playing in a friend's member-guest golf tournament.
