2011 Suzuki Equator Pickup Review

When you think of pickup trucks, you probably don’t think of Suzuki. Suzuki has been selling cars in United States under its own name since the 1980s, it’s never offered a real pickup for the U.S. market. But that all changed with the Suzuki Equator. The Equator isn’t exactly Suzuki’s own creation, it’s essentially a clone of Nissan’s midsize Frontier pickup. Equator’s differences related to exterior styling and features. The …

2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Review

Flash Floods, A Car That Talks Back and Other AdventuresThe all new 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport joined our household for a week long of adventures and minor mishaps. The compact crossover sports an aggressive shark-nose front-end with narrow headlights that got it’s taste for water hours after taking it off the lot. Even though it was pouring out, my daughter wanted to join me for the first drive. She was cheerfully …

2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

Timing is everything and if I had planned it out better, I would have chosen the Mitsubishi Outlander to drop my kids off the first week of school. The fighter jet meets shark front end means business. It could set the tone for the year (wishful thinking) that mamma isn’t going to take any crap this year. Perhaps the car could even get my kids to school on time. Ok, …

VW Passat Review

My first ever car review was the Suzuki Kizashi, a car I praised. My Uncle Dan decided to chime in to the blog world and wrote, “I still love Buick-Nice try kid-good writing Dan.”  Now to understand the true hidden meaning of that you would have had to live in my house during holidays when the men would gather in one room and dispute which vehicle was the best. Names …

2012 VW GTI Review

Recently I discovered that I am really a 25 year old man. My husband of almost twenty years felt perplexed to say the least and wanted to know what I was talking about. While picking up my car for the week, the sales rep nonchalantly stated that the Volkswagen GTI appeals mostly to 21 to 28 year old men. I am neither but love this car and sadly us moms are …

2012 VW EOS

It’s Labor Day. The last day of summer freedom and then the kids are back in school. I dread this time of year. The inevitable Minnesota wintertime taunts me. Plus the hubs is out of commission after he fell off his horse the day before and broke his wrist, rib and suffered a minor concussion. May lose my mind but then something works to my advantage and I get to …

Kizashi – Great things have already arrived

When you hear the name Suzuki, an image of a motorcycle probably pops up in your head. You’re not thinking luxury sedan to cart your family around. Well the Suzuki Kizashi is here to change that image. This is the second year the Kizashi has been on the market and unfortunately many of you have never even heard of it. It almost seems like the Kizashi is being kept a …
