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 — June 9, 2020 —week we got to drive the 2020 Hyundai IONIQ HEV Limited, a Hybrid Electrical Vehicle (thus, the “HEV” in the name.) Just like the one in the picture, ours too was ‘Scarlet Red Pearl.’  I have never been a big hybrid fan personally and neither has Laurie.  Laurie points out that we’ve seen the …

PINEHURST, NY — May 27, 2020 — The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid we had this week was something of a surprise. Every week our car is a surprise, really, but this one was different. It looked different; it reacted differently right from the ‘start’ button; and it was a mystery to unravel from that moment until now. We are big …

I think both Laurie and I had a lot of fun driving the 2020 Genesis G70 RWD (Rear Wheel Drive) 3.3T Sport. Not one being afraid to steal good words from somewhere else, Genesis writes, “The award winning G70 redefines the sports sedan with an unmatched combination of performance, design and standard luxury features.” Good statement. This really is a …

Driving Me Crazy: 2020 Hyundai Elantra GT N LINE M/T By JOHN and LAURIE WILES

JOHNNY: Yes, what you see is what is in our garage, a 2020 Hyundai Elantra GT N LINE M/T. That’s a mouthful, and here’s what it means. The GT Elantra is the Grand Touring model, which also means it’s a smaller, fun, runabout. The “N” in N Line comes from the driving test center, Nürburgring, Germany, and the Hyundai’s huge R&D …

PINEHURST, NC — May 6, 2020 — Normally I start with a picture of the car we reviewed so you get a feel for what we are discussing. This time I thought I would start with the rewards. Why? I have always wondered why Subaru had such a strong following. According to Kelley’s Blue Book, Subaru is probably the most …

PINEHURST, NC — April 29, 2020 — Writing about the 2020 BMW M235i xDrive Gran Coupe is rapidly becoming a more demanding job than I thought. See the one in the picture? One just like it is in our garage, sort of. Same color, but ours is a Gran Coupe, which I think means it has the swept back roof line of …

PINEHURST, NC — April 15, 2020 — If you follow our column or listen occasionally to our show, you know that we are Hyundai fans. We have driven a lot of them, and many of the different makes and models. It seems to me that Hyundai would like to corner the market on whatever American drivers are into. The 2020 …
