When it Comes to Tech; The Audi Q7 has Something Special

It’s always fun to see new tech come to market and find it as an offering for the vehicle you want to drive on a daily basis.

Camry vs. Camry; It Doesn’t Even Sound Interesting

When you consider the best-selling midsized sedan on the market today you get exactly what you expect. This is a car that can easily get from home to work and back, run errands for you, be a great car for a weekend date or a night out with the kids at a movie and is an all-around great member of the family. While the Camry may be your favorite car for your daily driving duties you don’t expect it to be powerful or fast in any way, and for the most part that is the case with this car. (more…)

The Porsche Response to Higher Performance Needs

While the Porsche 911 has been the stalwart of the brand for many years the fact is there are many sports cars that are much more powerful and dynamically designed by many of the other names in the world of supercars. Porsche has always held a special place in our hearts, but our minds tell us the power we want to enjoy is really in the Ferrari name or the Lamborghini models. Does this mean Porsche is yesterday’s news and it’s time for us to embrace the fact it no longer has a place in the automotive world? (more…)

Can’t Afford a Cadillac; Just Wait

There always seems to be something new on the horizon that is meant to intrigue us in some way. When we see the exceptional quality and style of Cadillac vehicles many of us would love to be able to drive one new, but can’t afford it as part of our monthly budget. The reality is the Cadillac name is synonymous with a higher end of luxury than most and with a lineup of luxury cars that are typically larger than the entry level models from Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz most of us have to wait for a used Cadillac or purchase a different brand.

This is the case with relationships, with products, in business, with our homes and even with our vehicles.

The Ford You Must Order

Ford has been around for a century or more and has mostly been a volume sales leader for the United States with global expansion to be a contender throughout the world. Normally you don’t have to order your Ford vehicle unless there is a specific color or build you want, but there is a Ford that you will have to order and the company has already started to take a list of names. This may put Ford in the category of the exotics, but as a company that has their toes in every puddle of the industry you have to admire what they have created. (more…)

When You Want More

Consumers are consumed with getting the right item for the money they intend to spend. That is the nature of consumerism and most manufacturers are happy to oblige. We see new products on the market every year and we are taught starting as kids to look for the new or better item because quality counts on everything from toys to homes. One thing in between those two is the car you choose to drive and what features it may have. If you consider yourself a purveyor of quality, you should consider the Model S from Tesla, but there are some new factors you need to consider. (more…)
