BMW M850i xDrive

AutoNSider Review | 2019 BMW M850i xDrive Convertible

Do you get a little kick out of it when you valet and the attendant says something like “Hey Big Daddy…nice ride”…or “Whoa Momma…lookin’ good!” Or when they get to know you and put “Mr. or Ms. Before your first name…instead of your last? BMW’s biggest convertible just seems to bring an added...

Toyota Camry SE

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Toyota Camry SE

I think today’s Camry SE kinda’ resembles a Mercedes “E” Class from a few decades ago. Crazy talk? No. Unlike the high-tech luxury-loaded vehicle that it is today, back in the beginning Mercedes’ E was a little more humble…a solid vehicle known as much for it’s longevity as its luxury. Not the...

Mazda CX-9 Signature

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Mazda CX-9 Signature

Odds are pretty good that if you’ve got a friend who’s not really a car aficionado, and they slide into the passenger seat of your CX-9 Signature, they’ll say something like “Hey…lookin’ good! What is this…a Lexus? Audi?” And I can’t blame them. While MAZDA still has some of their old “ZOOM ZOOM”...

Trailhawk Elite

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Elite 4X4

Wherever you take it…wherever you park it…wherever you tow it…Jeep’s Trailhawk Elite will fit right in. Somewhat like an American-made Land Rover, Jeep’s Trailhawk package makes their two-row Cherokee one of the most versatile vehicles that Jeep sells. Since we’re talking about a Jeep, let’s jump...

KIA Telluride

AutoNSider Review | 2020 KIA Telluride SX V6 AW

Do you follow sports at all? And even if you don’t, you’ve still gotta’ love those human interest stories about the young kid who gets called up from the minors and hits a home run his first time up to the plate. Or the rookie quarterback who throws a touchdown on his first series as a starter…...

Chevy Silverado RST

AutoNSider Review | 2020 Chevy Silverado RST

Are you one of the only people NOT driving a pickup these days? That’s a little bit of an exaggeration, I know, but remember…the three biggest-selling vehicles for years now have all been pickups. So…back to the question: Since almost everyone needs a pickup sometime …if you’re not already a member...

2019 Lexus LS 500 F Sport

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Lexus LS 500 F Sport

Remember those first Lexus LS to hit our shores 30 years ago? The rather chunky and upright ones that resembled the Mercedes E Class of the day? Well forget about it. Today’s 5th generation Lexus LS resembles the original about as much as today’s dot. com wonder-kid resembles great great gramps...

Toyota RAV4

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid AWD Limited

I looked at the window sticker before I even pushed “start”, and thought: “40 thousand for a RAV4? Really?” Then I drove it for a week and thought: “40 thousand for this RAV4? Not a bad deal at all.” Here’ s why: More than ample room for five + whatever they’d likely need for a comfortable week or...

Lexus UX

AutoNSider Review |2019 Lexus UX 250h F Sport

So let’s just say that you’re a reasonably well-adjusted 30+ and you no longer care what Hollywood’s A-Listers are driving. You don’t really care if the rest of the world knows that you’re Green. It’s simply YOUR choice to leave a smaller footprint…and you don’t need a Tesla or a Prius to do it...

Mercedes AMG

AutoNSider Review | 2019 Mercedes AMG C43 Coupe

Let’s just say that Mercedes is serious about their AMG line. Some car makers will slap something like an “S” on their vehicles…call it a “Sport” model…and hope that you’ll take their word for it. Not Mercedes. When you see ”AMG” you can be assured that it’s not just holding its stomach in to look...
