Spruce Up Your Christmas Playlist With Some Quad City Caroling Spruce Up Your Christmas Playlist With Some Quad City Caroling

I know that a lurker out there will blast this at the gym or at work this week. Good on ya, playa!

New Kia Stingers are Getting Cheaper New Kia Stingers are Getting Cheaper

Unfortunately, Albuquerque seems to sell Stingers weirdly well. I see three a day when I’m in town, and not even the same three! But in cities where Stingers are untouched, you can get brand new base models for $25,000! Want a V6, how about $30,000 and a back rub?! Even bigger savings are at the top. Yugo Czech’m out!

Which Sedans Will Survive? Which Sedans Will Survive?

Im sure that no one would have guessed that the Mirage G4 would be the sole sedan survivor for Mitsubishi. Jeep, GMC, Ram, and Land Rover offer zero sedans and couldn’t be happier. Ford and Lincoln turn into single sedan brands they offer any at all. If the CT4 doesn’t make to production then Chevy, Buick, and…

Finances: My $18,000 Annual Cost of Living Goal is Coming into Focus Finances: My $18,000 Annual Cost of Living Goal is Coming into Focus

I’m chucking money at the WK2 in order to get this rig paid off by April. Once I defenestrate this car payment, I’ll be close to living off of $21,000 a year, all in. That cost of living is still $3,000 too high for me to buy a house. Like a toy Giulia, we’ll do a little break down.

It Would Be Distasteful to Call this Kitty, "Inbread" It Would Be Distasteful to Call this Kitty, "Inbread"

Though there may be a whole grain of truth to that statement, we need to spread love and stop being so jelly of how others are raised. I wish I could glue ten banners together in order to remind all those crusty ol’ people out there rye their half-baked preconceptions are crumby and knead to change. Life’s a roller…

It's Hard to Say, "Hyundai Purple Palisade" It's Hard to Say, "Hyundai Purple Palisade"

This is an appropriate preview to be privy to, my peeps! Apparently, purple Palisade profiles project proper proportions. What?! That presumption is as preposterous as a hip hop hippopotamus? The parts placement prescription is far from pulchritudinous? Perhaps, but to be prosperous your perspective must be positive,…

I'm Convinced Korea is Out to Get My Money I'm Convinced Korea is Out to Get My Money

Gone are the days where I was one of the few doing write ups on Korean cars because I believed everyone needed to know what one of the largest automakers in the world was doing. Now, every spyshot, every new release, even renders are being done by all of the Automotive News and YouTube Recommendations sites. We have c…

2020 Kia Soul Turbo 2020 Kia Soul Turbo

The Soul pictured is the Turbo model which should be running the 1.6t engine and a 7-speed DCT. I think this model is FWD which would push the power to 201 hp. There is still an EV model as well as a lower petrol model coming. I dont believe the base model has divorced lighting so the fascia will be more traditional …

Rossion Q1 for $67,900 Rossion Q1 for $67,900

I had no idea that you could get a Rossion Q1 (or Noble M12 and M400) for less than a 718 Cayman S. Here is a 2010 Rossion Q1 listed at $67,900. I point out the Q1 specifically because Rossion — also known as 1G Racing, which was the exclusive Noble dealer for the US — obtained the rights to produce the Noble M400…

Automotive Reminder: Covini Engineering and the Six-Wheeled C6W Sportscar Automotive Reminder: Covini Engineering and the Six-Wheeled C6W Sportscar

Back in 1978, a mechanical engineer by the name of Ferruccio Covini launched a company dedicated to building something special. Let’s have a quick refresher on what Covini Engineering has done between that near-Alfa Romeo SUV and this Italian Tyrell P34 grocery-getter.

What Will Be The Best Two Used Buys From Each Country This Decade? What Will Be The Best Two Used Buys From Each Country This Decade?

Let’s jump forward to the 2020s. When shopping for cars between 2010-2019, what will be the best TWO used cars from German, Japanese, American, Italian, British, Korean, and Eurother Brands?

Ahhh, Sookie Sookie Now! Ahhh, Sookie Sookie Now!

Ungh! Man alive do I enjoy this thing!! You don’t need to keep black socks on the floor — so that they know you get down to business — the Amanti has you covered.

The Secret Fuel Efficiency of a 5.0 Jaguar XF The Secret Fuel Efficiency of a 5.0 Jaguar XF

A 2012 Jaguar XF with the entry-level 5.0L V8 — producing 380 hp / 380 lb-ft of torque — is rated at 16 city / 23 highway. However, this XF has consistently returned 22 mpg commuting around town and often averages a fleck over 26 mpg on highways. Even when I open the car up on my monthly, 2-hour long system checks, I…

Automotive Reminder Automotive Reminder

The upcoming SK3 Kia Soul Turbo will be a utility vehicle with a center-exit exhaust. Most people will bring up the SRT8 Jeep, but I have been holding onto the memory of the Nissan Rogue S Krom Edition purely to drop that obscure knowledge bomb when the time was right. Oppo, I’m giving you these launch codes so that,…

Hyundai Palisade, You Say? Hyundai Palisade, You Say?

This appears to be the first leaked picture of Hyundai’s new 8-seater crossover known as the Palisade. All of the details match up with the fuzzy spy shot found earlier this week. No information has been released but it seems as if the Palisade will be built in Korea, powered by a V6 engine likely making 270 hp, and…

These Alfa Romeo Ads With People Trying to Offload Their German Rides Are Pretty Good These Alfa Romeo Ads With People Trying to Offload Their German Rides Are Pretty Good

For anyone that hasnt seen them yet. I’m also noticing how commercials and movie trailer formats have completely changed due to the internet and the 5 second YouTube no-skip. Honestly, content creators should have a say with the ads since these Alfa Romeo spots are likely to get people sticking around for the full ad.

Change of Plans Change of Plans

Im going to put off the Caddy Wagon again and go for a GranTurismo Convertible. Still looking towards June or July to purchase but I’m confident at this point that a Maserati GT C is exactly what I’m looking for and able to handle without stress. The final selling point was that rear-facing car seats fit in the back…

Kia Tellurides at SEMA Kia Tellurides at SEMA

There is a lot of evidence building up that Kia may field an off-road brand. The Telluride goes on sell Spring 2019, is based on the Sorento platform, will be built in Georgia, and sports a 3.3L V6 rated around 270 hp. Production-spec will be shown this month in LA alongside the new Soul and Soul EV (so says the rumor…
