    As with last year, some of the press vehicles I drove this year went without a written review (though we did cover them on The Off the Road Again Podcast). Yet these cars, trucks, and SUVs are still worth mentioning, so this post covers them in short format. In chronological order from least to most…

    I’ll start this review with some trivia, did you know that the Hyundai Kona is called the Hyundai Kauai in Portugal? Isn’t that interesting, makes you wonder what Kona means in Portuguese? Oh, I’ve just googled it and now know that it means…lady parts! Wow, this is off to a strange start. With all that…

    First of all, Happy Holidays Hoons! I hope the season has been good to you so far. I feel like Santa Claus would look good in Soul Red Crystal Metallic, so it was with that in mind that I got started with this latest review. I last reviewed the Mazda CX-50 in June of 2022…

    GM seems to be all-in on off-roader pickups these days. Its Colorado ZR2 trim spilled over to the Silverado ZR2, then to the 2500HD models, and over to GMC’s Canyon and Sierra trucks. But it’s getting to be absolute overkill: GM’s flagship off-road-focused pickup truck, the 2024 Sierra 2500HD AT4X AEV, has a hood that…

    The new generation of Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon debuted to much applause, if not for being a solid midsize pickup in of itself than for being a huge step forward from the outgoing generation which had been on sale in North America since the 2015 model year. As a fan of the class in…

    The three-row SUV segment has been known to absolutely print money for automakers, which makes it a bit of a surprise that Toyota hasn’t built more under the Lexus badge. Sure, the big truck-like options like the GX and LX have had that option for some time, and they did cram a 3rd row into…

    I’ve been hunting for a first-gen Ford Mustang for a while now. Prices on these things are a bit insane at the moment. People want a surprising amount of cash for hunks of crap. And if you want a Fastback? Forget about it. Somehow, though, I managed to find one that is priced very well……

    Recently, Toyota introduced two new vehicles – the Grand Highlander and the Lexus TX. The Grand Highlander is a slightly longer version of the venerable Highlander, the vehicle that so many have settled for because the significantly more functional Sienna minivan doesn’t match their desirable lifestyles. The Lexus TX is a more opulent version of…

    I love a good mystery. Like most car guys, I also love hanging around a junkyard. The possibility of finding a good part brings me joy, but plenty of trips can give me the “why is this here” thought. I’ve seen everything from clapped-out Porsches to an SR20 that still ran in a 240SX. Someone…

    The Chevrolet Suburban is a staple of the American road trip. Usually seen packed to the gills with both people and luggage, Chevy’s full-size, long wheelbase SUV is a go-to for families looking to go places or even just carry their kids. The brand and model have come a long way, and the High Country…

    The Acura Integra Type S is a 320-hp sports sedan that’s built for daily-duty greatness. It’s a blast on a curvy road, but also comfortable and enjoyable for the drive to and from work. It’s a great dual-natured machine. [Disclaimer: Acura tossed me the keys to the Type S and included a tank of fuel.]
