2020 Nissan Maxima SR Review: Its Future Lies Somewhere Else

The Nissan Maxima was a hero car. It hasn’t changed much but the competition has impressive powers I love comic book superheroes, especially from the Marvel Universe. Spider-Man is my favourite and has been for more than 30 years. 30 years ago, the Nissan Maxima, the original 4-door sports car (4DSC) was my automotive Spider-Man. When Spidey fought off Dr....

2019 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk Review: The Jeep No One Wants

The Jeep Renegade is compact in size but big on personality. Doesn’t seem to matter as no one’s interested I’ve been wrong on countless occasions in my life. In personal matters, I’ve done much better in the last five years, which is how I’ve felt about my understanding and vision of the automotive industry in my 20+ year long career....

2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Review: Yes.

The new Toyota RAV4 is your one-stop go-to compact SUV. Pick a trim and a colour. And done. Stop what you’re doing! Well, no, keep reading or watch my little video, and then stop what you’re doing! Stop thinking about it and head on over to your Toyota dealer and select the regular, Trail or Hybrid RAV4. Yes, the Toyota...

2019 Nissan LEAF SL+ Review: Competition Is Fierce

The Nissan LEAF+ sets aside power and range issues and maintains its current position as a leader in the compact EV segment. There’s always danger involved when innovating or being first to adopt or introduce a new technology. More than likely, the competition is watching, taking notes, and preparing something better that will launch shortly thereafter that will steal the...

2019 Nissan Micra S Review: $10,500 of fun

The Nissan Micra is a rare member of a shrinking segment. When it goes away, soon enough, it won’t be because this was not a good car Many would think I’m wasting my time driving and reviewing the same car for the last five years but only those who have not driven this car in that period of time, or...

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE First Drive Review: Useful Tech

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE
Mercedes-Benz loves to go big when it comes to technology and the all-new GLE is the perfect example. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is all new from the tires up. The interior is brand-new, the design is brand-new, and the technology is pretty far out. The thing bounces up and down automatically to get out of a snowbank or sand trap,...

2020 Ford Escape First Drive Review: Headed Back Up

2020 Ford Escape
The Ford Escape been a dominant force in the popular and growing compact SUV market for a long time, but its popularity has been shrinking. The 2020 Escape is hoping to reach the top once more. Looking at the sales numbers in the compact SUV segment so far, the Ford Escape sits third behind the redesigned Toyota RAV4 and fairly...

2020 Subaru Legacy First Drive Review

2020 Subaru Legacy First Drive
The 2020 Subaru Legacy has been completely redesigned and we take it for a spin out in Kelowna, British Columbia. After spending a few days with the 2020 Subaru Legacy, I'm left with the same feeling as the previous generation. This car should do a lot better in terms of sales, but probably won't. Scary Sales Numbers If you've ever driven the...

2020 Jeep Gladiator Overland Review: The Perfect Toy

The new 2020 Jeep Gladiator is bar-none the coolest new product introduction in 2019. I drove it and loved it. I loved the new 2020 Jeep Gladiator for all its high points and issues. With a handful of exceptions, like the Patriot and Compass, Jeep has created some of the most flawed yet coolest and desirable vehicles despite basically sticking...

2019 BMW M850i xDrive Convertible Review: The Ultimate Cruiser

The new BMW M850i xDrive Coupe killed me. The BMW M850i xDrive Convertible makes me want to live forever. As both the 2019 model year and calendar year wind down, it’s becoming possible to list out my favorites. And without a single shadow of a doubt, the all-new BMW 8 Series, in all its glory, will feature prominently in any...
