PINEHURST, NC — July 21, 2020 — Both Laurie and I found this week’s car rather interesting. Yes, it’s a Toyota; and yes, its an Avalon, the traditionally family sedan. But it wears the TRD label, which stands for Toyota Racing Development. So, what we have here is a family wannabe race car. Sorry, I don’t know any other way …

2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition 4WD SUV V8 Review By Driving Me Crazy Duo JOHN and LAURIE WILES

Laurie – I owned an early production Toyota Land Cruiser back in 1974—goodness! 45 years ago! And it bears no resemblance whatsoever to the all-steel, manual transmission, no-frills 4WD vehicle I owned.  Whether I barreled down the side street to the New York Public Library at a noisy, raging 12 mph, sending jaywalking pedestrians scattering, or went deep into the Back …

PINEHURST, NC  — April 25, 2020 — Somewhere between $51K and $71K sits a really nice, really big, seven-seat luxury mid-size crossover SUV manufactured by General Motors. The vehicle was introduced on January 12, 2019 at the North American International Auto Show. The vehicle went on sale in June 2019 as a 2020 model, with early orders commencing prior to …

PINEHURST, NC — March 8, 2020 — I have to tell you that the image of the 2020 Subaru Legacy Limited XT above doesn’t do it justice. Whoever decided in Subaru marketing to use a picture of a Magnetite Gray Metallic car on a gray street, with gray buildings around, and with a gray sky in the background, needs to …

PINEHURST, NC and YONKERS, NY — January 29, 2020 — My review of the 2020 Blazer AWD this week is an interesting write, maybe not to the reader, but it was to me. “Why, pray tell?” You ask. First, because we usually get a monroney with each of the cars we review. A ‘monroney’ is basically what you see in …

PINEHURST, NC — December 10, 2019 — This week, we drove an incredibly exciting car—especially exciting for Johnny, because this beauty was right up his alley—a vroom vroom classic muscle car, the 2020 Dodge Charger R/T 392 Scat Pack Widebody. It fit him like a glove (with a little tugging and pulling as he slid behind the wheel.) A tap …

PINEHURST, NC — July 31, 2019 — There are so many ways I could open up a review of this car, it is hard to pick one. I want to say things like, “ I have a real car this time”, but they are all ‘real cars’.  I want to say “Let’s talk about the red rocket that is Corvette”, …

The day before yesterday, on July 2, 2019, America lost arguably the best- known pitch man in the automotive business and arguably Detroit’s most powerful, ingenious, and innovative executives. Lee Iacocca was the only executive to head two of Detroit’s three top automotive manufacturers. Best known for developing the FORD MUSTANG and PINTO in the 1960s, and for reviving Chrysler …

Or, as Johnny says, “You can’t beat the Cadillac ride!” “Driving Me Crazy“ is “The only show where a couple talk cars and life and still love one another.” You can’t beat the MSRP base price of $36,000 or, for a fully loaded 2019 Cadillac XT4 FWD Sport like we drove, $50,535 (the Sport has a base MSRP of $39,295.)

“The only show where a couple talk cars and life and still love one another.” Our normal routine is to test drive a new model car every week, for a week, but things have been changing with the automotive manufacturers and the size of their “press fleets” — that is, cars set aside for review by automotive journalists — is like …
