2014 Hyundai Sonata 2.0 T Extended Drive

If you saw me around town last week I was driving a deep red Hyundai Sonata. It’s an attractive mid-sized sedan with distinctive swage line that adds the look of speed. It’s just a look though, the Sonata, though very perky, is not the car you’d be racing for pink slips at the bottom of the LA River. You also wouldn’t want to be racing the Sonata at the bottom of the LA River because it’s a really fantastic vehicle that you wouldn’t want to abuse. The 2014 Sonata that I …

Bad Words Movie and Other Wastes of Time

This time of year is a strange one. Spring Break isn’t a slow time at Mr G’s office and it’s also a spendy time of year (property taxes, tuition deposits, regular old taxes … ) so I was slow to make a travel plan and we’re a little bit stuck with a whole lot of nothing.

Until yesterday (days after the Equus had left my house) I hadn’t read any reviews of it from the automotive magazines. I seldom …

Road Testing the 2014 Toyota Corolla

Thanks to Debi Cruz-Beck for this guest post. I had the opportunity recently to go to San Diego and drive the 2014 Toyota Corolla. I’ve never owned or driven a Toyota but have always heard great things about them, so I was pretty excited to get behind the wheel to find out for myself how well the 2014 Corolla handled on the open road. The Corolla is affordable yet sexy, which are not two things you usually see written in the same sentence because typically sexy is expensive. The Corolla …

I Brought Two Kids and A Red Soul! to Florida

A few months ago I took Alexander and a friend to Amelia Island. I’d been there on a press trip a few months before and knew that it was the perfect vacation for my boy but not for my daughter. Since Jane was on a class trip overseas and Mr. G would be working I decided to take Alexander and a friend to the resort. The best part of being a car reviewer is that you can sometimes review a car on vacation so when I told the folks at …
