Posted on February 23rd, 2015 in , , , | 2 Comments
By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Car salesmen are... salesmen. Their job is to sell you stuff. Whether you need it or not. Here are some things you don't need -- and some things you need to know about:

2015 Acura TLX Review

Posted on February 20th, 2015 in , | 1 Comment »
By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist                                 Photo courtesy of CARICOS It's rare for a luxury car's price to go down for the new model year. Rarer still for that to happen when the car in question is "all new." Well, here you are ...

2015 Infiniti QX80 Review

Posted on February 13th, 2015 in , | No Comments »
By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist                              Photo courtesy of CARICOS Well, gas is cheap again. Does it mean big SUVs (with big, thirsty V8s) will make a comeback? I doubt it. Even though the cost of fuel is down, the cost of ...

Classic Car Pros… and Cons

2015 Toyota Camry Review

Posted on January 30th, 2015 in , | No Comments »
By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist                             Photo courtesy of CARICOS              Don't worry -- they didn't mess it up. The "bold" and "sporty" 2015 Camry is -- wisely -- more or less the same as it was before. Yes, it has a new face. And ...

Posted on January 26th, 2015 in , , , | 1 Comment »
By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Cheap gas is making hybrids seem like less of a deal. Which in turn is making them harder to sell. Which is tough nuts for those trying to sell them -- but could be really good news ...

By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist                                    Photo courtesy of CARICOS The Beetle is cute and lately, butch -- but the VW that consistently sells best (and which has done so, for a long time) is the Golf ... which was once the ...
