RADwood, Bring A Trailer And Cars & Coffee Have Ruined My Simple Dreams

Cars that were once scoffed at, spit on and ridiculed have massively increased in value. The underdogs and unwanted cars from only 10 years ago are no longer affordable. This movement or shift won’t end anytime soon. Like most of you, I’ve spent far too much time on Bring A Trailer, lusting after cars and trucks that are no...

Honda : Cursed By Excellence And Forward Thinking

Honda was founded in 1948 Hamamatsu, Japan. American Honda opened its doors in 1959. Honda Canada, in 1969. The Honda Civic has been the best-selling car in Canada for 22 years. Honda is one of less than a handful of car brands that no one can rightfully hate on. To be more precise, Honda is nearly faultless. Acura, on...

Florida Trans Am : Vision Turned Hobby Turned Career

Every dream begins with some kind of vision, or memory. For Rick Deiters, an experience sparked a life-long passion for cars that has served him incredibly well. His story would make good plot for a movie about our collective love affair with the automobile. The moment that would shape his life Rick was born in the mid-60s, grew up in South...

The Genesis Game Plan: Will It Survive The New Genesis GV80?

Genesis J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study
Genesis vehicles are priced-fixed and available for purchase online only. Genesis Canada holds inventory as there are no selling-dealers. For test drives, Genesis will bring the cars to you. All of this is very complex, and not at the same time. And this is perhaps why I find many of Genesis’ ideas, none of them new mind you, to...

2021 Genesis GV80: Genesis 2.0

The all-new Genesis GV80 will become the brand’s flagship vehicle. It will be powered by a turbocharged 2.5-litre 4-cylinder or a twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6. AWD will be standard in Canada, as will a 14.5-inch infotainment screen. Value, design, luxury and technology are all part of the GV80. Genesis, Hyundai’s luxury vehicle branch, was founded in late 2015 and entered...

TMMC Cambridge: One of Toyota’s Footholds in Canada’s Auto Manufacturing

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada Media Tour 2019
Toyota’s got quite the foothold in automotive in Ontario, with both Woodstock and Cambridge plants assembling both Toyota and Lexus vehicles.

Infiniti: The Next 30 Years Via More Design And Electrification

The next three years will redefine Infiniti’s image and from what we’ve seen, it’s looking really good. Here’s a bit of knowledge, if you didn’t know: The Infiniti logo represents the road, the long infinite road ahead and Infiniti’s desire to be there with you. I firmly believed in it when they released the cool M30, the G35 and the...

Top Position Shuffling At Genesis Motors Has Us Wondering…

2019 Genesis G70
Genesis, Hyundai’s luxury vehicle division, is working hard to compete but will it make it? Genesis was founded almost exactly three years ago. The momentum behind Hyundai’s decision to launch its own luxury brand was based, in part, on the relative success of the first generation of the Hyundai Genesis sedan, and the potential to elevate the brand’s standing on...

Mitsubishi Motors : The Brand With A Rising Sun

Mitsubishi has suffered and triumphed equally over the last few years. They promise that the lows are behind them. I’ve not been very kind to Mitsubishi for close to seven years. They gave me no choice following numerous regretful decisions such as cancelling the Endeavor, the EVO program as it should be and naming an SUV “Eclipse” not to mention...
