Honest opinions - the good, bad and ugly. View the entire archive.

2011 Chevy Impala

Now that Ford has retired the Crown Victoria, pretty much the last large (5-6 passenger) sedan you can buy for less than $25k is the 2011 Chevy Impala. If you're looking for...

2016 BMW 340i

I like a plain brown wrapper. Why advertise what you're up to? I mean, if you plan to actually do it as opposed to just thinking about doing it...? Well, maybe a white...
