2016 Passat Unveiling: Chicken Little, The Sky Is Not Falling Because Volkswagen Lied
Alright people, I will get right to the point. The Volkswagen emissions scandal (A.K.A.—Dieselgate) is not by any stretch of the imagination the “largest scandal in the history of auto manufacturing” nor is it any more of a “betrayal of…

The 2014 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8 Turbo Shows There Really Are Second Acts In German Car Lives
At a recent full line VW drive event that we here at Gaywheels.com attended in Napa, we started our morning grabbing the keys to the vehicle that we expected the least from as far as thrills and surprises go. We chose to drive a manual transmission equipped 2014 VW Jetta in midlevel (and very affordable) SE trim with the all new VW 1.8 liter base corporate turbocharged 4-cylinder motor.

The 2014 Toyota Corolla Is The World’s Sexiest Washing Machine

Toyota stopped there and left everything else exactly as it was. This is less a restyle and more of a whitewash of sterile durable goods.

These questions come from Kia, the supplier of highly styled, affordable people movers. Yes, I just used “highly styled” and “Kia” in the same sentence. Check out what I had to say during my day with the newest hottie from Kia. Yes, KIA.
Ford Transit Connect – Preview
While most of the coverage of the Transit Connect focuses on its utility and appeal to the small business owner, this little box can be configured to carry up to 5 people with loads of room to spare behind the second row of seats. In addition to the small business owners that will rejoice at its size and price, I think there will be a lot of sports enthusiasts (cyclists, skiers, surfers etc.) that will find the commodious and bare-bone interior very attractive for their lifestyles.
