2018 Ford Mustang GT Answers Need For Speed

2018 Ford Mustang Gt
Mustang GT, Muscles Its way Into My Heart Late in 2018 my run with test driving Ford vehicles was about to come to an end when a call came in asking if I would like to extend test driving by a week with a Ford Mustang GT. That was NOT a hard decision. "Yes," I almost yelled into the phone! The...

Navigating Memory Lane In The Kia Telluride

Kia Telluride review
A Carolina Girl Returns Home The day after Christmas I boarded a flight to South Carolina. It was my first trip "home" to Columbia in almost 11 years. While I wish my visit was merely a trip down "memory lane", it was more complicated than that. Walking through Columbia's airport my heart rate increased, it felt good to be back....

2019 Mazda3 Hatchback Is “Kid Approved”

2019 Mazda3 Hatchback
2019 Mazda3 Hatchback Design Takes Style To Next Level It’s not a luxury car. It’s not a full-sized car nor an SUV. But, the first words out of McKenzie and Hunter’s mouths when I picked them up from school in the new 2019 Mazda3  Hatchback were “What is this car! Is it a sports car? Is it fast? Does it...

2017 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Fun, Peppy And Economical

2017 Volkswagen Jetta GLI
2017 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Review It’s been a few weeks since I have had a press car that I did not have to stop into a gas station at least once to top off the tank. That was not the case during my week with the Volkswagen Jetta GLI. It seemed like I drove, drove and drove some more and still finished...

2018 lexus ls500
2018 Lexus LS500 F Sport Review One could hardly complain about any facet of any Lexus, but when one is afforded the added opportunity to drive an 'F' Sport Performance model of any vehicle in the Lexus stable they are in for an added dose of Fantastic! The F model LS500 I drove around town this past week was so...

2016 Ford F-150 XLT Supercrew: City Slick, Country Strong

Powerful and sleek. I truly felt like I had the best of both worlds when I took the 400 mile trek to West Texas in a 2016 Ford F-150 XLT Supercrew. I’ve got to admit, on first glance I was a bit worried about driving such a big truck five hours on the open road through West Texas. I’ve had...

Audi S5 Cabriolet: Great Car On Some Curvy Roads In Arkansas

Audi S5 exterior
Adventures in Arkansas In The Audi S5 Cabriolet By Bill Owney JASPER, Ark. – Curves were as plentiful and smooth as a waterfall’s edge under a crescent moon. Blonde Bride, road, and car all seemed to work in harmony as we cruised with the top down, basking in the warmth of a sunny afternoon in both of Arkansas’ mountain ranges. The car, an...

Peppy and Quick: Golf Sportwagen Anything But Standard Volkswagen

2017 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen
A Lot of Fun In A Wagon The new 2017 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen TSI S model is a vehicle you will buy, hold, and enjoy for the long term. At least the model I tested for a week is a vehicle to keep and enjoy. Why do I say that? The manual transmission gives it lots of pep. It makes...

2022 Toyota Sienna Redefines Cool

2022 Toyota Sienna
Adventures in the 2022 Toyota Sienna by Bill Owney CHEOA POINT, N.C. – Disaster. It had been such a lovely day and now as night quickly sliced across the Nantahala National Forest, which is like the adjacent Smokey Mountain National Park except that it is strikingly more beautiful and generally free of tourists, I anticipated a wonderful night’s sleep. As night fell,...

2019 Kia Sorento Even Better With Age

2019 Kia Sorento
2019 Kia Sorento Review It's been many years since I attended a California launch event for the first Kia Sorento introduced. I remember feeling it offered a lot of features I wished other SUVs offered, and after spending a week with one recently on the roadways of Texas, I feel the same way. So many automakers are adding technological advances that...
