We know almost everything about the upcoming 2016 Ford Focus RS, except the price. According to what looks like a Ford configurator website still in QA testing that is very different than what is found on Ford.com, the hottest of Focus hatches will have a starting price of $35,730. A fully loaded car will set you back… »
Some say Lucifer would rock a high end luxury car to blend in with the elite that sold their souls for fame and power, but when he wants to cut loose he would want something fast that bares the mark of the beast. If you fancy yourself the Prince of Darkness you can have a one-of-a-kind Challenger Hellcat with a 666… »
About a week ago, I bought a used car and discovered that the previous owner left many wondrous things behind, like a small tube of lip balm covered with hair, half a pencil with no eraser, and four CDs in the six disc CD changer. Here is the long-awaited answer to the question: which left behind album is best?
Kit cars are interesting if only to delve into the insane mindset of the person who builds one. It’s the Canal Street handbag that everyone can spot from a mile away - but not always. Sometimes fakes like this Lamborghini LP640 replica are so convincing that they’ll take several once-overs to let you know that you… »
While local dealership ads tend to be pretty cheesy, they usually stay away from political controversy. This weekend, Donald Trump supporters took to social media demanding that an Los Angeles-area Nissan dealership face consequences after making commercial in which a Trump piñata is whacked to promote a sale. »
The BMW E39 M5 is one of those cars that got it so right the first time that the company was forced to think way outside the box for the next iteration, making a product that just wasn’t as good as its predecessor. Today you can get the best looking example around for the price of one of the most mundane cars ever.… »
The American market missed out on the last generation Audi RS4, because wagons don’t sell here and because we can’t have nice things in general. It is probably safe to say that the next generation RS4 Avant will remain forbidden fruit, but Audi plans on bringing the RS4 sedan back to America for 2016. »
Window shopping is a novel experience where you wonder what your life would be like with some expensive unobtainable trinket. This is sort of like that, except you can afford everything on this list. It’s basically a social experiment to see where the true bottom of the running car market lies, so let’s jump down this… »
I’m not really a truck person. I respect trucks, but never had much of a desire to own one. Then I had to move a bunch of junk from my house when I realized my Volkswagen GTI and our Sienna minivan weren’t going to cut it. After borrowing my dad’s Frontier, I developed a new appreciation for the cheap pickup. Here is… »
Exciting stuff, rear legroom. Pictured above, for reasons that will become clear: the Ford Fusion. »
Every day I hear from consumers looking for help with defective cars they have bought. They often mention that they might call the Better Business Bureau, as if that might accomplish something. The problem is this: The BBB will not help you in a meaningful way.
There is an old bit of car buying advice that says show up to the dealer when they are ready to close, as the salespeople will cut a good deal because they want to go home. If you try this method make sure someone knows you are there, so you don’t get stuck for hours like one Boston area family. »
I should have known better. I cleaned up my car so nicely that it looked amazing – well at least as amazing as it could have looked given the fact that it was an 8.5 year old car with 115K miles on it that was, let’s just say, heavily enjoyed. Because I was in my own dreamland, I was hoping to obtain a ridiculously… »
Most cars have predictable depreciation curves and will be worth 40 percent of their original purchase price five years after they’re first sold - but the Nissan GT-R isn’t most cars. It hoards value like an automotive Smaug. But the times, they are a-changin’, and prices for used examples may just become affordable… »
The 90s were good times, the rock was grungy and the mid-engine sports cars were wedge shaped with pop-up headlights. Now that first generation NSX prices are getting nuts, perhaps it’s time to consider an alternative. Our friends at Bring A Trailer have an awesome Lotus Espirit S4 turbo with a reasonable reserve. »
The Toyota Supra is quickly becoming the unobtanium grand touring potential powerhouse that you wish you could afford, but there is another. This 2000 Lexus SC300 is everything the Supra could be, plus a few things that are just nice to have, for a price that’s very un-Supra like. Dear Santa, this is what I want. »
