See, this compact SUV deserves an award—in fact, last …

First Impressions?   JOHN:             First thought – Lee Iacocca. He would have liked this car. I remember the old commercials when they started touting the 300 as the car that a spirit of the past inspired – new design, comfort, style, and all that. Good commercial and this Chrysler 300 really looks like a car someone could be proud …

First Impressions JOHN:          Blue, really, really Blue! Like a Robin’s Egg blue – pretty…and it looks fast! LAURIE:      You’re right, it was blue, darling—but not Robin’s Egg.  It was more of a periwinkle blue with a splash of cerulean, like the North Pacific—not to be confused with the South Pacific—and a drop of azure, like a cloudless sky in August.  BMW …

Source: Nissan Image Library   First Impression? LAURIE:      I suppose my first thought was, where have I left my cellphone in case I had to call 911?  The moment this top-of-the-line luxury sports coupe in “Venetian Ruby” with “Graphite leather and silk obi aluminum interior” rolled into our driveway I thought, Johnny’s going to have a heart attack.  You know …

First Impressions? LAURIE:      This is the van that is going to redefine the meaning of the word “van”—especially when you consider the price.  Usually we don’t talk about price till the end of our column.  Actually, when I was growing up it was rude to talk about what things cost.  That’s not how it is today…right, Johnny? JOHN:         Yes, Dear. …

DRIVING ME CRAZY: The Car of Johnny’s Dreams – 2014 911 PORSCHE CARRERA Turbo By JOHN and LAURIE WILES

  First impression? JOHN:       The Porsche Carrera we drove was red. I love red cars, just love them—but the red Porsche Carrera screamed “Arrest Me Red” sitting in the driveway. A Porsche, my dream car—at age 66? In a 25 mph neighborhood? In a 35 mph village? Hmmmm… Is there no justice? Where was this when I was 25; …

DRIVING ME CRAZY: The 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR By JOHN and LAURIE WILES

“Not Really That Small”
 First Impressions? LAURIE: Shakespeare’s “Seven Ages of Man”— about halfway between the Second Age, the “whining schoolboy,” and the Third Age, the “lover, sighing like furnace.” That’s the impression I got when I first saw the Nissan Versa Note, that this car would appeal to—18 to 25 year-olds. I bet Shakespeare would agree. JOHN: If there …

First Impressions? JOHN: 1. “I’ll get you, Quattro…” Okay, that is my first impression. Who can forget the iconic tow truck driver who never gets to tow the Quattro because it is so good in the snow? Not me, that’s for sure. They have some new ones too. One is about ‘taking corners, not cutting them’, http://www.ispot.tv/ad/7yVZ/2015-audi-a3-hugs-corners-cuts-none, and that one …

Married couple in their “sensational sixties” talk about today’s hottest, newest cars—and still manage to go to bed without getting angry at night. What was your first impression of the GMC Yukon? JOHN: B-I-G. Really big…huge…monstrous…road hog…wonderful!!! Back off roller skate; don’t mess with The Man! I want a chauffeur. Tell Don Corleone he can ride with me. LAURIE: My …
