Hummer was badly wounded in 2008, first by the rapid rise in gasoline prices and then by the increasingly shaky economy. Ultimately, though, the brand was a casualty of General Motors’s June 1, 2009, bankruptcy filing, and with it went an intriguing vehicle that was snuffed out soon after its arrival.

Cheap Wheels

If our readers were asked to rank Toyota Corolla traits, we’d guess sportiness and enthusiast interest would fall pretty far down the resulting list. Still, there have been Corollas capable of piquing a cheap-wheeler’s curiosity, and we think the 1987-88 FX16 GT-S “hot hatch” is one of the cars from this subset.

2013 Chevrolet Avalanche

It might have been the question that no one asked, but truck shoppers seemed to like the answer. In response to the seemingly hypothetical query “What happens when you cross an SUV with a pickup truck?”, Chevrolet responded “Avalanche.”

2020 Nissan Versa Review

2020 Nissan Versa

Consumer Guide Automotive

Since its introduction for 2007, the Nissan Versa’s claim to fame has been that it was often the least expensive new vehicle on the market. So the biggest question going into the preview for the redesigned 2020 model in Nashville was, “Will it remain so?”

It might seem strange to think of the Chrysler 200 as a Rosetta Stone of sorts, but there are few products that better demonstrate the turmoil that surrounded Chrysler towards the end of the last decade.

2019 Mazda 6

Tom and his family took the 2019 Mazda 6 Signature on a weekend road trip to the Twin Cities. Bayport is one of the first Minnesota towns along Interstate 94 as you head west out of Wisconsin.

Having heard great things about the food and architecture of Minneapolis, my daughter was excited to learn that her college water-polo team would be competing in a tournament at a school just outside of Minnesota’s largest city. As things turned out, that early-spring trip was a whirlwind event that left little time for anything but polo, sleep, and travel.

2020 Subaru Outback

2020 Subaru Outback

Consumer Guide Automotive

It’s probably not a stretch to say that the Outback is what put Subaru on the map. Introduced for 1995 as an SUV-flavored trim level of the Legacy wagon, it was soon upgraded to its own model, and sales have seen a steady climb since. Today – as for many years – it is Subaru’s best-selling vehicle.

For 2020, Subaru ushers in the sixth generation of the Outback. With it comes greater rear-seat and cargo room, some new features, and the return of a turbocharged engine. Also added is a new Onyx trim level that carries black wheels and trim along with special StarTex water-repellent upholstery.
