Passport Dealerships

These Canada-only General Motors franchises lasted only a few short years.

For American car guys, Canada can seem like a very foreign place. Not only do our neighbors up north refer to American cheese as processed cheese, or more charitably as “mild cheddar,” they have a history of buying and selling cars that many of us Yankees have never heard of.

2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody

2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

Consumer Guide Automotive

Even in this new age of muscle cars, it’s still surprising that one of the quickest and fastest of them is a 4-door sedan. And that the 4-door sedan in question costs just $70,000.

But that’s the story behind the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser

2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible

From its inaugural model year of 2001 through the 2006 model year, the Chrysler PT Cruiser enjoyed the distinction of being a Consumer Guide Best Buy. The spunky compact “vanlet” hit all the right buttons to earn our favor, counting among its virtues excellent space utilization, respectable fuel economy, and attractive pricing, as well as the undeniable appeal of its nostalgic design.

2020 Lincoln Aviator

2020 Lincoln Aviator Reserve

Consumer Guide Automotive

Seems that Lincoln – once synonymous with luxury cars – is putting lots more focus on its luxury crossovers.

Lincoln has been completely redesigning its slate of SUVs of late, starting with the all-new full-size Navigator for 2018, followed by an update of the midsize MKX that was renamed Nautilus for 2019. Next came the midsize, 3-row Aviator – the subject of this report – which just went on sale as a 2020 model, soon to be joined by the new 2020 Corsair (based on the redesigned 2020 Ford Escape), which is the replacement for the compact MKC.

Got all that?

Football Auto Ads

1962 Oldsmobile F-85 Cutlass

Americans have now enjoyed the services of the automobile for well over a century. It’s hard to imagine another development that did so much to shape the country as we now know it. But at just over 100 years of service, the car has nothing on football.
