2014 Ford Escape

escape lead 2

The current Ford Escape shares virtually nothing with the previous Ford Escape – except a name and the Blue Oval badge. Conceptually, aesthetically and functionally, it’s a very different vehicle. Mostly, this is a good thing. The old Escape was dated, clunky – and slow. Thirsty, too. The new one is slick, modern – and…

2013 Hyundai Sante Fe

Hyundai Santa Fe Elite

If GM’s board had simply hired away the entire management team at Hyundai back in ’08 – and fired everyone at the Renaissance Center in Detroit – it would saved taxpayers a lot of money. Those guys – the Hyundai guys – know what they’re doing. One brilliant design after the next. It’s almost boring…

2013 Nissan Quest

2013 Nissan Quest

Minivans – traditional minivans – are becoming scarce. GM and Ford don’t even make them anymore. That leaves Chrysler (Town & County – and its lower-rent Dodge sibling, the Caravan – which is also re-sold by VW as the Routan), the Honda Odyssey, Toyota’s Sienna – and the Nissan Quest, subject of this write-up. Well,…

2013 Toyota Avalon

The Oldmobile no longer is. No offense meant to current and previous Avalon owners. Hell, I like big, cushy, quiet cars – and the ’95-’12 Avalon was that in spades. Best Buick ever built by the Japanese – and right here in America, too. Nothing wrong with any of it. Except for one thing: Time…

2013 Mazda CX-5

This new CX-5 ought to do pretty well. Though it’s technically a compact crossover SUV – it looks (and actually is) almost mid-sized. So it’s substantial and roomy. That’s one. Two, it starts at just over $20k – vs. over $22k for its most obvious rivals, the popular Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape.…

Growing Up In America

Paul Craig Roberts Infowars.com August 20, 2013 Terrible things are happening faster than we can keep up with them. Monsanto, widely regarded as a criminal enterprise, is expanding its monopoly over seeds and food production into Chile and Latin America. http://rt.com/news/chile-protest-monsanto-law-634/ Monsanto has given up for now on monopolizing Europe’s agriculture, but has brought the EU around…

Another Car We Can’t Buy

Kuga 1

Here’s another car you can’t buy because of government rigmarole – the Ford Kuga. Well, not quite. You can buy the vehicle – it’s sold as the Ford Escape in this country. I just reviewed it last week (see here). What you can’t buy here is the Escape with the same engines that are available…
