The 2020 Subaru Ascent Touring leaves us yearning to wander the unbeaten path in affordable luxury. Alas, we find ourselves in Costco parking lots looking at the San Gabriel mountains, wondering what it might be like to just go. The Ascent can make that ascent.

This Ain’t No Cruise, It’s A Super Cruise!

Handsfree driving is not for the faint of heart. Having been told to keep two hands on the steering wheel for decades, letting go is not easy.

This Caddy Has It All: 2019 Cadillac CT6 Platinum

We take a look at the 2019 Cadillac CT6 Sport AWD, a sharp-looking beast and a marvelous vehicle to cruise around in… or should we say Super Cruise around in?

The guys rolled up with a sporty 2018 Buick recently. Cascada, they called it. Roughly translates to “waterfall” in Spanish. Actually translates to “pretty good car to have for a week” in English. The Cascada has been in Europe for several years and now in the U.S. for the past three.

Subscriptions, in my mind, once mainly meant receiving a magazine daily, weekly, or monthly. Then came the shaver-heads and toothbrushes that are sent out to you on a set schedule. Contact lenses, I just learned, are also offered in this way (I’m a new contact wearer). But seeing the word subscription applied to a car is relatively new to me. Did a good-old “lease” become blasé? Enter, the S60 T8 eAWD Polestar Engineered!

2018 Buick Enclave Avenir

Like most of my vehicle reviews lately, my stint with the 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir begins at LAX. With a 10-hour flight behind me, and an almost two-hour trek through LA traffic in front of me, I made my way through customs and immigration, picked up my suitcase and made my way out to the shuttle area. This is the only time I have flown from Scandinavia to Los Angeles and traded a warm, sunny Stockholm for a (relatively) cold and wet LA. Sweden was experiencing an unusually warm May, and Southern California was in the midst of a weirdly cool and wet mid-May.
