2015 Cadillac Escalade

Filed under: SUV, Cadillac, New Car Reviews, Luxury I have never liked traveling to Monterey, CA. The picturesque coastal city is about 300 miles from my home in Los Angeles, which means cramped and uncomfortable regional aircraft are part of the equation when the turnaround is only one night. Over the years, I have cursed [...]

2014 Kia Forte Koup SX

Filed under: Coupe, Budget, Performance, Kia, New Car Reviews The Kia Forte and Hyundai Elantra have long followed similar paths, with each available in a four-door sedan, a five-door hatch and (most recently) a two-door coupe bodystyle.

HBO’s “Silicon Valley” may fix its “female problem” in Season 2

HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” which wrapped up its first season in June, was one of the most frustrating television shows in recent memory. On one hand, it perfectly captured many of the details and vocabulary of Bay Area technology types, which in and of itself is a tiny miracle — from “Social Network” to “Hackers,” Hollywood’s version [...]

2014 Audi SQ5

Filed under: Performance, Crossover, Audi, New Car Reviews, Luxury It may be obvious at this point, but here in the United States, European manufacturers routinely give us the short end of the stick. Now, I’m not talking about models or brands that don’t come here, like the Mercedes-Benz A-Class or the entire Renault line. No, [...]
