With summertime upon us, the great American tradition of taking a road trip is also imminent for many. Road trips take many forms, from a couple’s outing over a weekend to week-long Griswold-style adventures to infamous destinations. Sometimes we want the top down, sometimes we want to haul a lot of gear or even a trailer. Whatever you need it ...

Someone bought a brand new Corvette C7 Z06 and was showing it off to friends, who were filming on a cell phone. After goosing the throttle a few times to let it blast that beautiful note, the car launches. On the shift to second gear, however, it appears too much throttle was applied after the clutch drop and the torque ...

When we hear phrases like “limited edition,” we generally take it with a grain of salt. One man’s “limited” is another man’s “ton of ‘em.” Most of us would agree, though, that a production series of 1,000 is truly a limited edition. Especially when it’s …

Several changes have come to the Navigator this year, including a new engine, an upgraded interior, and styling updates. This large, eight-passenger sport utility vehicle is a lot more stylish and competitive than it was before. All good things, given that it’s still the segment’s low-price leader.

When you think “fuel efficient” you probably don’t always think of a Honda model. Yet their cars are consistently the best-in-class for fuel efficiency, no matter the segment. The Fit, Accord, Pilot, CR-V, and even the Civic are all at the top of the MPG charts for their respective classes. This seems to be making Honda’s management wonder why they’re ...

When is a 10-year-old Accord in need of a new transmission worth over $21,000? Easy. When it was owned by UFC Bantamweight Champion and movie star Ronda Rousey. That’s when.
