It’s Easy to Buy a New Car

car shop lede

Assuming you have the money, buying a new car has never been easier – or less stressful. If, that is, you aren’t still buying cars the way people did back in the ’90s . . .  before the Internet. The ‘Net has made it simple to do almost everything you need to do except sign…

Does it Ever Make Sense to Buy a New Car?

I’ll probably get in trouble. After all, I write new car reviews. Advising people not to buy new cars is not what you’d probably expect. But, here’s the fulsome scurvy truth: I – and every car journalist I know – drive used. Because we know. And now, I’m gonna spill the beans, give you the…

Untergang for GM?

Utergang 1

Picture that scene in the bunker. The Fuhrer railing at his generals, spittle-spewing maledictions about their treachery and lies. Cue GM CEO Mary Barra – poor woman – inside the tube towers, ashen-faced subordinates sitting around the big table… . How could this have happened? And (probably) Why must I be surrounded by idiots? Actually,…

2014 Mercedes CLA 250

'14 CLA lead

The new Mercedes CLA is one thing no previous Mercedes-Benz has ever been – front-wheel-drive (with AWD optional) and also another thing very few Mercedes Benzes have ever been – fairly inexpensive. If you can afford a loaded Camry you can probably afford this car. But the CLA is not a Camry – or a…
