    This is my second time with the third generation Sequoia in the last year, I previously spent a lovely week with a 2023 Platinum back in September. My summary was that while the Platinum was good, I felt like the TRD Pro trim level “represents a much more interesting option just from a “damn that’s…

    The Volkswagen Jetta is now in its seventh generation. Seven! I don’t really remember the first gen Jetta (A1) but it was actually the best selling European car in North America. I guess that was relevant based on what was available at the time, but I can say for certain that I remember the second…

    I know what you’re probably saying “have you gone mad?”. Comparing Toyota’s “Gazoo Racing” (GR) Corolla with their Corolla Cross compact crossover makes absolutely no sense. However, there is a method to my madness. Which of these $35,000 Corollas, neither of which is actually a Corolla, is best? I’ll run them through a comparison test…

    My 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado has now been on US soil for over a year. For better or worse, it was completely stock when I bought it. It was well maintained but it needed some modernization. After some basic maintenance updates, I began modifying it. First, it received a new radio and suspension. I…

    I love cars. I also have come to love mountain biking. And it’s been fascinating to watch the rise of electrification in both of them. The parallels are remarkably similar. Both weigh more and both cost more. The initial embrace has been a mixed bag. But more and more of them are finding favor with…

    Small cars generally aren’t seen as ideal for long road trips, but I stand firmly in the camp of supporting small, light sports cars as the right tool for effectively any task they can reasonably handle. And so, I found myself road-tripping a 2023 Toyota GR86 Premium from Connecticut to Virginia Beach and back through…

    So, this is a little awkward, I’m not sure I’ve ever tested a car that I know is about to end production. Volkswagen has confirmed that after eight years of production, 2024 will be the final year of their Arteon sedan. However, this is still 2023, and you still have time to consider whether this…

    We’re now a two-car team with respect to the West Coast efforts in the 24 Hours of Lemons. Yes, we still run the 1962 Ford Ranchero and it finally has V8 power. But we’ve added another headache; a 1966 MGB GT. And this one too, somehow, also has V8 power. Even better? Both cars finished…

    It’s automotive journalist tradition to dunk on the Toyota Prius. And in full disclosure, I’ll admit I’ve never really driven one that I was all that impressed with. While the driving experience was…fine, it was just “an car”, it was never a very good looking car. *Dramatic stinger noise* Until now! This new Prius, the…

    You’re here, and then you’re instantly over there when you’re driving the Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance. That’s what happens when you have over 1,000 horsepower being put to the ground seemingly effortlessly. What a wild machine, this thing is… [Disclaimer: Lucid sent over the Air and tossed us the keys. They also gave us…

    My 2018 Lexus GX460 has come a long way in the roughly two years I’ve had it. It has received mechanical, livability, armor, and technology updates thanks to many partners joining in on the project along the way. In this update I’ll run through a few miscellaneous things that I’ve done to it recently, from…
