  • It's a Jeep thing -- and we get it

    A funny thing happens when you’re behind the wheel of a Jeep Wrangler. You soon notice every other person you see driving a Jeep will acknowledge you with a wave or a nod, like some road-going form of a fraternity secret handshake. It isn’t surprising; it takes a special type of …

  • Scion's sporty wannabe more than competent, but a bit overpriced

    What started out as a review has become a requiem. Thirteen years after Scion’s launch, parent company Toyota has announced that its “youth” brand has been killed. Scion was conceived in 2003 in an attempt to attract younger buyers, but it never really resonated with its target audience. The recession hit …

  • Nissan Sentra among best deals in compact segment
    Refined runabout

    NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Humans, apparently, derive up to 90 per cent of their daily vitamin D requirements from sunlight. That's bad news for Canadians, since the angle of the sun through the long winter months prevents its beneficial ultraviolet rays from reaching us. Perhaps that's why we -- according …

  • Lexus IS 300 a sharp, svelte character
    Sporty sibling

    After spending a week behind the wheel of the new Lexus IS 300, I have just one question for the folks at Lexus: why? Don't get me wrong -- I've been a big fan of the sport sedan offerings from Lexus since the first IS 300 arrived in Canada in 2000. …

  • Selkirk auto dealer riding for a great cause

    Steeltown Ford dealer principal Jason Sargent is getting geared up for the annual Ride for Rehab, a snowmobile ride in memory of his late brother, Scott.

  • Elantra among innovative vehicles elevating Hyundai to new heights
    Serious business

    VICTORIA -- "How do you double the value of a Hyundai? Fill the tank." "Why are Hyundai owner's manuals so thick? Because they include a bus schedule." This wasn't just some sot at some open-mike night, either; this was Don Romano, president of Hyundai Auto Canada, cracking one-liners courtesy of Jay Leno …

  • Honda's new Pilot makes road trip entertaining and enjoyable
    Family approved

    I've recently had a few heated discussions regarding the styling of Honda's redesigned Pilot. Those who found the old model too square welcome its slippery new profile. I actually liked the old Pilot because it stood out from the crowd -- it was just boxy enough to be instantly recognizable. Now, …

  • New Toyota Camry a solid choice

    wIt's easy to dismiss this latest Camry as yet another vanilla mid-sized sedan for those who drive because they have to, not because they want to. But Toyota is out to change the perception that it builds good--but boring--cars for the masses. 2015 saw a mid-cycle refresh for the popular mid-sized …

  • Big, thirsty and expensive SUV provides outstanding utility, but it's just too much for everyday city driving
    Cabin cruiser

    A full-sized, high-end sport ute with more features and doodads than you can shake a stick at has a lot of potential -- under the right conditions. It can be a lovely rig in which to spend time hauling an Airstream (thanks to a 3,674-kg towing capacity), ferrying the brood …

  • This Nissan Rogue is winter's worst nightmare

    SAGUENAY, Que. -- Perhaps more terrifying than zombie-apocalypse TV series The Walking Dead, is Nissan's two-year-old television ad depicting an urban invasion of nefarious snowmen, broadcast in conjunction with the launch of the current-generation Rogue. In the ad, these sub-zero vandals terrorize unassuming citizens, and probably traumatize six-year-olds across the …
