I drove a $42,000 Lexus UX hybrid SUV to see if this offbeat, entry-level crossover is worthy of its luxury nameplate. Here's the verdict.

The 2019 Lexus UX 250h is a new subcompact luxury hybrid. Lexus now offers hybrid versions of three crossovers in different segments, providing alternatives to sedans. The Lexus UX 250h is offbeat, but I liked the small crossover quite a lot. A fuel-economy rating of nearly 40 mpg combined certainly helps. In the world of departed luxury hybrid oddities, the Lexus CT200h wagonette seemed to have exactly one fan, and that fan was me. Understandable, as the CT200h was a slicked-up version of my...

2019 Nissan Maxima: Athletic. Luxurious. But Too Expensive?

The 2019 Nissan Maxima gets a styling refresh for the new year.  It retains its powerful V6 motor but the transmission is a gray area. The new Maxima is luxurious but the price point may scare buyers off.  Ah yes, the Maxima. This is purportedly Nissan’s four-door sports car. That’s a bold claim if you ask me. However, even past models of the Nissan Maxima came equipped with strong and bulletproof motors. It also came with sporty handling and a taut ride, which is a Maxima trademark. It’s good...

2020 Toyota Corolla Sedan: Still A Corolla, But Better

2018 Toyota C-HR Review: The Stylish Gas Hog

When Toyota axed Scion, we thought the fun models might come to an end. Enter the 2018 Toyota C-HR. The C-HR is one of the boldest new compacts in recent memory, especially when it comes from Toyota, often known for their generally conservative products.

Subaru Crosstrek, watch this if you want one...

Rented a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with 2000 miles on it. While driving on RT 84 in NY, climbing a long but gentle grade (highway) with the adaptive cruise control on, the transmission failed. It's a mildly underpowered vehicle, and the transmission is a CVT (continuously variable transmission) that uses a steel belt and a series of variable pulleys to adjust for speed and load. The RPM was about 4000 climbing the hill, then as the car in front moved over the adaptive cruise attempted to accelerat...

General Motors, inventor of the modern automatic transmission, is only just recently warming up to the idea of shiftless driving.

Brawny, Four-cylinder, CVT-equipped Chevrolet Malibu RS Demands a Modest Price

The $48,000 Nissan Pathfinder is one of the best family SUVs money can buy — but it has one major flaw
