Should you buy a 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia?

Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti
The Alfa Romeo Giulia came in hot last year with a spiffy Italian design with the sportiness to back it up. Genuinely fun to drive, the Giulia certainly made a mark on the North American market. That said, is the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia still a good buy today? The Giulia gets a few upgrades for 2019, namely the addition of...

Should You Buy a 2018 Mazda6?

Ah, the Mazda6. It is the most misunderstood car in its segment. The car came out swinging in 2002 as a 2003 model year midsize sedan, hatchback, and station wagon. It replaced the lesser appreciated final generation 626 with a homerun. And then, it died. The 2nd generation put out the sales fire thanks in part to Mazda cutting the...

Should You Buy a 2019 Porsche Cayenne?

2019 Porsche Cayenne
Let’s be honest here. Can Porsche do any wrong? Oh, you don’t like the flat-4 cylinder engines in the 718s? Have you driven one for any length of time? Right. The base Macan is not quite Porsche enough? Again… Remember way back in 2002/03 when the Cayenne arrived? We all had opinions but those who had money put it where...

Should You Buy a 2018 Tesla Model 3?

This is a loaded question. How so? If you’re a Tesla/Musk disciple, you’ll have clicked on the story just to find mistakes and argue with me. Go ahead, please! If you’re curious about Tesla/Musk, then you’ll want to know if this car’s really worth all the hype and coverage it’s received in the last 3+ years. Do you too...

Should You Buy a 2019 Mercedes-Benz A220 sedan?

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan
Mercedes has done something unusual with their new entry-level offering: They’ve loaded it up with their latest most innovative technology yet. That’s right. What usually finds its way into the most expensive flagship car first, is included in the luxury brand’s most attainable car. What Mercedes has done is bring their “A-Game” with the new A-Class and in no uncertain...

Should You Buy a 2019 Nissan Altima?

It’s strange to think that the midsize sedan segment is no longer the hottest car category in North America after dominating for decades. This is especially odd when one considers that Toyota, Honda and Altima have respectively launched all-new generations of their Camry, Accord and Altima in the last year. These three cars account for roughly 1.1-million new car sales...

Should you buy a 2019 Ram 1500 Sport?

Ram 1500 Sport Review
Up until this year, I would always give the GMC Sierra the nod as my truck of choice should I happen to decide that my city-dwelling lifestyle needed a pickup. That’s changed after spending a week with the 2019 Ram 1500 Sport. Granted, my reasons may differ from traditional pick-up buyers. I don’t need to tow anything, and I don’t...

Should You Buy a 2018 Buick Regal Sportback GS?

Many carmakers notoriously slap storied trims and badges on all their cars in the hopes of boosting interest. Think GT, RT, M, R and others. GM’s all but killed SS and at one time GS by sticking these trims on cars that bared nothing more than wheels and a trunk-lid mounted spoiler. “GS” has always belonged to Buick and while...

Should You Buy a 2018 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE?

2018 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE 3/4 front
For nearly a decade, the North American car market has had the privilege of once more welcoming pony cars from the ex-Big Three American auto makers. Out of the three, only the Mustang stayed with us through thick and thin, that is if you consider the Mustang II a Mustang. The Challenger came and went, strayed far from the beaten...

Should you buy a 2019 Genesis G70?

2019 Genesis G70
As I sat in traffic in the new Genesis G70 my mind wandered inexplicably wandered to the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Jaguar XE, two of the new Genesis’ main rivals. “This is how you introduce a new luxury vehicle to the market”. Genesis got almost everything right with the new G70. Almost as sharp as the Giulia in terms of handling...
