It was the vehicle that saved Chrysler from financial doom — and in the process, shaped the automotive landscape for thirty years to come. In the late 1970 s and early 1980 s, there wasn t really an ideal vehicle for families. Sedans and station wagons were shrinking to save fuel in the wake of two oil crises. Full-size vans were built on pickup underpinnings, with truck-like driving characteristics …

Well. WE DID IT. After nine years of driving the same car, three or four years of pining for a new kid hauler, and at least six months of fervent test driving and saving and researching and negotiating, we finally pulled the trigger. Say hello to our newest family member! I’ll admit, driving away from the dealer with Big Blue in my rearview mirror was a tad bittersweet. I’m usually not the sentimental type, but as my husband pointed out last night, we raised three kids in that …

Guess what? Minivans are still uncool. Automakers know this. Even the latest ads for the Honda Odyssey and the Toyota Sienna acknowledge the squareness of the segment. Sales have stabilized at about 500, units per year since tragically hip moms and dads fled to crossovers. As a mature segment with little potential for growth, minivans are getting comfortable with their squareness. For evidence, we direct your attention to the new Nissan Quest, which not only acknowledges its …

Drives Like a Huge C-class Although we only were able to drive Metris cargo and passenger models a few dozen miles each, it took only a few hundred yards to gather some impressions.

And outward visibility is superb. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder produces a modest 208 horsepower and …

That is what I called her. “Ma belle Grand-maman”. And that is what she was. 5 years ago, my grandmother was diagnosed we stomach cancer.

The same type of surgery that is done for weight loss so though it stopped the cancer, she struggled to stay close to 100lbs. Over the next five years, there were high and lows with …

Ever since the first motorhomes and travel trailers appeared early in the twentieth century, there’s been an ongoing debate over which is better. And the correct answer is: it depends. Just like car enthusiasts who differ strongly about which motor vehicle rules the road, the same debate exists between RVers who feel that towing their home is better than driving it, and vice-versa. So let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each class when choosing between a motorhome or a trailer …
