Last day playing with the MKC as it goes back to the dealer tomorrow morning. I took it out onto the Interstate to see how it would be for long road trips. I floored the accelerator on the on-ramp...

Spent a good part of today driving the MKC and playing with all the toys this one has. The drive control lets you set ride/handling to one of 3 levels, comfort, normal, and sport. In comfort, it...

The article said conversion from pounds to US dollars was "tricky". There is more to it than that because the pricing in England is much different than here. Frequently, prices in pounds over there...

If you look at a loaded S5 this year, the list price is $68,400 which is a lot more than you can load on the RC350. Also, no longer a V8 in the S5. The RC350 is more a competitor for the A5 with...

When you raise prices so high that you can't sell the cars and you have to idle the factories, that is a bit extreme. All the cars sitting on dealer's lots will likely be sold at huge discounts...

The only update I noticed for the 2015 that I thought was useful is an improvement in the way the NAV system calculates estimated arrival time. Guess I'll keep my 2014.

Lincoln requires that you check in on their website and list the car you currently drive. They do not offer the test drive if your current car does not meet some standard. The Cadillac sales...

Mike,
What the Chevy ads don't say is that the Ecoboost V-6 makes more power and torque than their V-8 and has a higher towing capacity. It all depends on how you slant data.
