    Morning Edition’s Story on Toy Cars is Preposterous

    For the last 25 years, I have been a regular NPR listener. My habits have changed slightly since the advent of the podcast, but I still listen at least once a day. I generally love the coverage, but I’ll say this: Every time Morning Edition or All Things Considered talk about cars or music, I ...

    Banned: 7 Cars to Have Sex In

    (Ed. Note: Apparently, a certain major search engine has a “family audience.” That audience is fine with front-page promotion of a “Red Band” trailer for an R-Rated movie in which Jason Statham graphically shatters a guy’s elbow (see below), but humorous allusions to sex in a car?

Buying new is never cheap, and if cheap is all your interested in, you’re left with the new cars ...

    Audience Participation Time: Official Winter Vehicle of New England

    On Saturday, I’m headed to an undisclosed location to judge the New England Motor Press Association’s Official Winter Vehicle of New England awards. For the last decade, NEMPA has selected a number of vehicles in different classes, along with one vehicle selected as “Official Winter Vehicle of New England.” What I’d like to know from ...

    Kia Sportage Wrapup

      I finished up with Kia’s new Sportage last night, when I had the chance to experience an hour and 45 minutes stuck in traffic. That’s the time when you really get to test the mettle of a car. That kind of time in pokey bumper-to-bumper really brings out a vehicle’s annoying traits. It’s like ...

    Seoul Man

    At my day job yesterday, we were trying to decide which Kia to write about. There’s a new Forte5 on the way in November, so we figured we’d preview it, under the assumption that the Forte was probably one of Kia’s top sellers. But instead of going on my assumption, I took a look at ...
