2003 Toyota is fantastic truck, I call it my “Lil Mule” because I like to spend a lot of time in the mountains and it has not let me down in any way. I have owned this truck since the fall of 2004, it had 10,000 miles on it when I bought it and I […]

I initially didn’t like this car. I got it in a, shall we say, a deal that involved an elderly lady and a Craigslist-related haggling. I’ve got a mid-grade LE trim with avocado green color, scratched hubcap and hood (“it was just cleaned,” the last owner said), tad under 30,000 miles when bought, and nagging […]

If you have a use-case for such a vehicle, there is nothing else made that can do exactly what this vehicle can do. We tow a 33 foot camper, and frequently when we travel with or without the camper we have four family members and two large dogs. Having the extra interior space vs. a […]

It is the best car I have ever been in, let alone driven. It is difficult to explain how much better this car is from an internal combustion engine car without actually driving in one. Even the lowest trim model, the S60 is faster and smoother than comparably priced cars from BMW, Lexus and Mercedes. […]

I have driven Tacoma’s all my life and bought each one new. I generally buy V6 4wd trucks and I hated the 2002 version. When the 2005 version came out, I gave Toyota another chance and nearly 13 years later, I’m still driving this 2005 version and LOVE IT, still. I have a red 4-dr […]

In the past I have purchased a new car every two years; until I bought my 2010 Fj Cruiser. This vehicle is good on and off the road. While the Jeep is heavier, seems more substantial, and has 30 more HP, I always go for the FJ. It’s a bit hollow-sounding on the road and […]

This has been my favorite vehicle through 4 decades of driving. I currently have 160,000 miles on it and plan to drive it until the wheels won’t turn. I like the size, which is between the smaller SUVs and the current “normal” SUVs. I looked at getting a new Highlander a couple of years back […]

  Best touring car I have ever owned. It has tons of power and Corvette mystique. It also has the quirks and issues that always come with GM engineering. Go for a long road trip in it and you will realize you have never been so comfortable and never looked forward to tomorrow’s drive so […]

This is the most polarizing car you can buy on the market today. It has unbelievable off-road capability, of which most people never use. It is underpowered on the highway, but the little V6 is awesome with the lower gearing. It is not a “safe” vehicle, but the doors and top come off… I went […]

2015 Optima Hybrid, drives like a sports car. Good suspension and responsive power when needed. Interior fit and finish is excellent. Averaging a combine 35.5 mpg and still in break in stage ( less than 2500 miles driven). Only issue to date is the poor night visibility due to the short frontal coverage of the […]
