Jeep Compass to be Outfitted with All-New Riot-Avoidance Technology

The infotainment screen of a Used Jeep Compass is showing a riot.
Driver-assist technologies are all the rage among carmakers these days.

Ford Recalls are Worse Than We Feared

A pink elephant with a jacket and top hat is standing behind a car shown on the back up camera screen.
Recently, the good ol’ Ford Motor Company issued a recall on more than 700,000 vehicles here in the US for a fairly simple but pretty valid reason: the backup cameras can show distorted images or simply go dark. Once again, for the people in the back: the backup cameras, which have one job, showing you what’s behind you in...

2021 Ram TRX: The Perfect Truck for People Who Work Part-Time Jobs But Make Full-Time Salaries i.e., Teachers

A hand in front of a chalk board holding the keys to a Ram truck, specifically a 2021 Ram TRX.
It has long been known that teachers enjoy one of the cushiest jobs in the world. They work 8-9 months out of the year and rake in full-time salaries that in some states can approach $100,000. But teachers have proven they are not content with getting only 3-4 months off per year and have seized upon these uncertain times...

Why the New Kia Sorento Will Shock (or Terrify) You

A woman is screaming at a Kia dealership showing bull horns and electricity.
The all-new 2021 Kia Sorento isn't your ordinary mid-size SUV. It's actually the most extraordinary, unusual, possibly strange mid-size crossover to hit the market since the first of its kind was unearthed at an ancient archeological site dating to 1016 AD. What makes the latest Kia Sorento the most daring, frightening car ever made? It could be its illusion...

Listen up, you misbegotten collection of ill-tempered household pets, freeway wanderers, and mind-swapped war criminals in the bodies of potted plants. (Yes, I know my audience – we have all this data for a reason). But seriously, listen up; I’m about to share something important with the lot of you. I’ve put in the time, I’ve done the research,...

Lessons Learned in the Auto Industry

A man with his hand on his chin questioningly is standing between two sets of cars at a Chevy Dealer in Norfolk.
I’ve been working in and writing about the auto industry for decades now and being in this game for so long, I’ve learned quite a lot. Perhaps most importantly, I’ve learned to listen to the refined wisdom that one can hear and enjoy at a car dealership. I was recently at a Chevy dealer in Norfolk and had a...

I Hate the Chevy Trax, and You Should Too!

A white 2021 Chevy Trax on stage at a Ted Talk.
Ladies and gentlemen, if it pleases this eminent council, I’d like to present you now with a less-than-comprehensive, but no-less compelling argument regarding the sheer lack of quality one might find throughout the rancid, mechanical carcass of the 2021 Chevy Trax. I do not wish to waste the time of this hallowed institution, nor that of the notable and...

It’s A Car! No, It’s A She-Shed!

A closeup shows a State Farm commercial playing on the infotainment screen of a 2020 Chevy Equinox.
What if we took two perfectly innocent and respectable SUVs, the 2020 Chevy Equinox vs 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe, and assigned them even more important jobs than they already have? By important jobs, I mean morphing into more than just transportation. I mean, we’re dropping roughly $30k for a friggin’ SUV. Should it not work for us and our...
