    2022 flew by. Time constraints didn’t allow for full written reviews of every press car I drove this year (though we did cover them on The Off the Road Again Podcast). Yet the cars are still worth mentioning, so this post covers these vehicles. The cars herein are BMW M4, X5, X3M Competition, and 840i; […]

    The 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the best-selling PHEV SUV on the planet… and oddly enough, there is some notion of Evo-heritage baked in there. That sounds crazy, I know. But after driving this thing on a race track and getting it to go tail-out through corners, my assumed notions have shifted.

    The Subaru Forester practically sells itself. Fozzy owners love their cars, evident in a faithful following that has buyers returning to the model time and time again over the car’s five generations.

    The first long road trip with your first child is extremely daunting. Baby-related needs dictate a different kind of packing and need for space you once didn’t require. There’s a reason so many people buy a big SUV once they have a kid, and it’s not just perceived safety. Space quickly disappears, and you’ll never […]

    With kid, or kids, comes stuff. And lots of it. What used to be a two-person weekend away that could be packed into the trunk of a Mazda Miata now requires something quite a bit larger. Additional cargo space is effectively as important as extra seating. There’s a reason people buy minivans aside from people […]

    Alright hoons, this one is going to be a bit different, a bit more personal if you’ll indulge me. As Ferris Bueller said, “life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” So, I decided I was at a point where I needed to get […]

    Super73 and Roland Sands Design teamed up to collaborate on an RX-Malibu, and the result is pretty sweet. This RSD-themed bike isn’t just upgraded in the looks department, as the battery has been relocated, the pedals and chain upgraded, and the rear shock swapped out for a better Fox unit. All-in-all it’s a sweet machine […]

    I needed a second car. I knew what I needed functionally but wasn’t sure what I wanted. Actually, I wanted my Bronco, but my wife wouldn’t relinquish it. So I started looking for something else. I looked at so many cars that I started to hate looking at cars. Ultimately, I bought something I didn’t […]

    The 2022 Audi RS3 absolutely rips. That 401-hp 5-cylinder engine sounds amazing, the interior is comfortable, and the Torque Rear drive mode rips you around corners.
