2017 Toyota Highlander: One of the top ‘family’ SUVs of the year

I love the Toyota Highlander.  The interior always looks nice, even on the base models. The exterior always looks sleek and rugged and comes in eye-catching colors. There’s plenty of room inside for just about everything or everyone you need…

2017 Toyota Yaris iA: Nothing basic here

Everybody remembers their first car: mine was a pale blue, 1969 Toyota Corona. It was a big deal, for both of us–me, and Toyota. For me, the Corona represented freedom, independence, and the gateway into a larger world–once I got…

The future has arrived, and there are no knobs or dials. This car has no easy-to-grab or easy-to-twist buttons or dials. All car functions require just a light touch of the finger, which means that you must have a light…

That’s so gay: 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid is the June Cleaver of cars

For those of you old enough to remember June Cleaver, you will recall that all she needed to be elegant was a string of pearls and a housedress that was starched and flowing. She didn’t need all kinds of fancy…

2017 Toyota Tacoma Part 2: TRD Off-Road really can go off-track in style

You can read part one of Sam’s review of the 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road here. Okay, okay, I know I look great in a truck, but for some reason, no one really believes that I know how to drive…

2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid stretches extremes

When I first drove a Toyota Prius nearly two decades ago and envisioned a future full of hybrids, the Highlander crossover is not exactly what I had in mind. I mean, here is a full-size, three-row crossover loaded to the…
