Review: 2011 Audi Q7 3.0T S line

By Kevin Gordon

I have a confession. I stereotype drivers. More specifically, I stereotype drivers of luxury cars. Sadly, my innate judgement doesn’t just stop at brand, it extends to model. Every time I see a BMW 328i coupe, I assume that the driver decided that they liked the image of the car, but little about the way it actually drives. I probably give Audi drivers the harshest judgement of all. There are some exceptions to this; if you drive an early Audi S4 Avant, I instantly want to be your friend despite any moral shortcomings you may have.

By Kevin Gordon

There is a wonderful trend happening in the automotive world. Small cars no longer need to be automatically considered economy cars. The team at Autosavant has now had a chance to sample most of the cars in this class and if you read them you’ll notice they are some of the most positive words we put to pixels around here. The Hyundai Accent would like to add its name to that list. The recently redesigned Accent wears a family familiar face and carries an impressive options list. Read on for our full impression and to see if the Accent has graduated from the economy class.

Product Review: 2011 F-150 Tonneau Cover – TonnoPro

By Kevin Gordon

Recently our friends over at  have been on a (much welcomed) rampage about automotive journalists being overly fair to those cars that they cover in order to maintain a good relationship with the manufacturers. As a smaller site that works hard to get interesting cars and products to review, it can be challenge to remain balanced. With that in mind, when I began to gather my thoughts about the TonnoPro tonneau cover I had to take second look and double check all of my judgements. Could it make through my freshly renewed journalistic vigor? Read on to find out.

Spying for Savings: Progressive Snapshot

Note: at the bottom of the article is a link to our review of the Snapshot.

I have seen a large number of commercials recently for a new product from Progressive Insurance called Snapshot. Snapshot is a small device that you plug into the OBDII port of your car. Once plugged in, the Snapshot monitors your driving habits. Based on how carefully you drive you can qualify for up to a 30% discount on your auto insurance. Is this when we begin to slide down the slippery slope of allowing our driving habits to be remotely monitored 24/7? How much personal freedom are you willing to give up in order to save money on your insurance? Please read on and use the comments to debate whether this is the beginning of the end.
