  • 2012 Ford Focus

    Ford has always been a leading innovator when it comes to safety technology. Ford was one of the first automobile companies to begin research into airbag usage 50 years ago, creating an airbag test fleet in 1971. In 1985 Ford offered a driver-side airbag and then in 1993 Ford standardized driver and front-passenger airbags across most of its lineup. Recently Ford unveiled rear seatbelt airbags in the 2011 Ford Explorer to help increase rear occupant safety. This new feature is squarely aimed at families; the rear seatbelt airbags are designed to spread the impact load across the body, hence...

  • Nissan GT-R Club Track Edition

     Nissan’s GT-R is a world-class supercar for sure. Not only will it match or beat a Porsche 911 Turbo when comparing performance, but it will cost a great deal less as well. Nissan is going to prove itself even more now that it’s going to release the Nissan GT-R Club Track Edition. The car is unlike the hot version of the GT-R, the Spec-V, which is made more for the street. The Club Track Edition was developed by Nissan and NISMO along with two Japanese tuning companies Nova Engineering and Nordring to be used¬ a small grassroots racing-league. The interior has been stripped out to the...

  • 2006 Mazdaspeed6
    Used Market: 2005-2007 Mazdaspeed 6

    The Mazdaspeed 6 was launched in 2005 as the European sports sedan on the cheap, much like the Subaru Legacy GT.  It didn’t try to outperform other comparable cars, but offered up an everyday sedan with a bit more sporty-flare that even the most basic Mazdas come with. The formula for the car...

  • Nissan Sentra SE-R Goes R/C Drifting For Canadian commercial

    These two models are considered staples in the sports compact world. Before Subaru came with the WRX, front wheel drive sedans like the Honda Civic Si and the Nissan Sentra SE-R were popular among people who were looking for a practical and fun daily-driver.

  • 2010 Lexus IS Convertible F-Sport
    2010 Lexus IS 350 C F-Sport Review

    My first experience in a Lexus convertible could be best described as “lackluster.” And that was a bummer, as the open-top Lexus in question was the SC 430. Now, in hindsight, I know I shouldn’t have been excited about the car, but I got into the SC 430 tester shortly after coming home from...

  • 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Plum Crazy

    I always wonder what it was like to be alive in the later half of the sixties. I don't really care about any of the political movements or cultural happenings that went on back then, you already know I just care about the cars. Back then American automakers were in an all-out horsepower war, and were creating names that still echo in the collective consciousness of car nuts today. Names like Mustang, Barracuda, Charger or Camaro. Engines were getting bigger, thirstier and could melt tires faster than Chernobyl.  Then, in the '70s a number of things happened. The formation of the EPA and...
