My review of the +Acura ILX. Hint: It wasn't my favorite ... http://bit.ly/1HULAXE
Was there anything I did like? Yes, for what it was, I thought the pricing was pretty decent. And the exterior styling. I liked that, too.

See why the +Volkswagen USA Golf #SportWagen  broke my heart. 
This is a no-compromises vehicle that gives you all the functionality you need while keeping all the fun.

i'm about 5 feet tall -- i think people who are taller than 5'5'' likely wouldn't have a problem. maybe even a little shorter. those in the "fifth percentile" range are at greater risk. and the TDI wagon was my dream car as well ... :(

Love night vision ... http://bit.ly/1MRRolE
Did you know that 69 percent of all pedestrian fatalities occur at night? Here's some great technology that will help you see better at night.

My new review of the 2016 Kia Sorento => 
From design to fit and finish, Kia has stepped up its game over the last few years, and this is quite evident in the all-new 2016 Kia Sorento.

Just posted a first look at the +Cadillac  #ATSV  => http://bit.ly/1F1yD9J
The ATS-V comes in both coupe and sedan body styles, and you have the option of an automatic or a manual transmission. I strongly recommend the manual.

New review => http://bit.ly/1QQ2eve
Even though Ford insists on calling the TransitConnect passenger vehicle a wagon, the sliding rear doors, fold flat seats, creative cargo spaces and boxy shape tell a different story. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Have you tried these apps yet? Any fave car apps I'm missing on my list?
We’ve recently encountered some automotive apps that every phone should have. They help you find everything from cheap parking spots to a trustworthy mechanic.

Do you know what crash test ratings 
OK, so a car gets “Five Stars” or a “Top Safety Pick,” but what does that actually mean? Well, it depends on the agency.

short people problems ... 
 
Here's some petite peeves -- do the taller drivers out there have things that bother them in cars? 
While I recognize that I am the lowest common denominator that automakers design for, I realized after my last petite peeves article that at least some of my petite problems affect average-sized drivers as well.

Do you want to see a convertible +Scion #FRS? So does Doug Murtha => http://bit.ly/1EjK4sS
Hot on the heels of the New York Auto Show launch of the iM and iA, Doug Murtha, group vice president of Scion, sat down with some Chicago media and shared a few insights about Scion’s future.

So this was cool ... Thanks to +Dodge  for bringing this cool car to #MAMA15  
The Viper ARC was officially revealed last week at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit, but it was in front of the Midwest automotive media that Chad Seymour, brand manager for Viper, announced pricing would start at $117,895 for the Viper ARC and that order banks are now open.

In my 9-to-5 life, I'm a social media student, experimenter, teacher and doer. I won't use the word guru ... and you should be wary of anyone who does. In my ninja spy life, I'm simply a girl who writes about cars.
