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.

A Week Behind the Wheel – 2009 Mercedes-Benz E320 Bluetec
I returned from a trip to San Francisco this past Wednesday and was greeted at the airport by a 2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class BlueTech. Ok, it didn’t actually GREET me; I had to take a bus to the off-site parking (an adventure in itself at Newark), wait in line, fill out paperwork…you know the drill.
