2007 Lexus IS 250 & IS 350: Test Drive & New Car Review
When the Lexus IS-series first appeared as a 2001 model, it was clearly a BMW 3-series knockoff right down to the inline 6-cyl engine and beautifully balanced handling. A 2006 redesign made the IS less BMW-like and more Lexus-like; 2007 brings few changes. I tested both models of the 2007 IS, the IS250 and IS350. They still appeal to people who buy BMWs -- but more to the people who buy them for their style than for their road manners. Tested by Aaron Gold, your Guide to Cars at About.com.

Long-term 2015 Mazda3: Introduction
Meet our new long-term test car, a 2015 Mazda3 with the big 2.5 liter engine. Mazda says the 184 hp engine can deliver 40 MPG on the highway -- in fact, they say it's just as fuel efficient as the 2.0 liter SkyActivG model from just three years ago.

2013 Chevrolet Spark test drive and review
Small cars -- I mean *really* small cars -- are a rarity in America, and most of the ones you can buy (Fiat 500, MINI Cooper, Scion iQ, Smart ForTwo) sell on their novelty value rather than practicality. That makes the Chevrolet Spark something unique -- a five-door mini-hatch designed to be used, and not just admired. Is the new Spark right for America?

2014 Mazda6 test drive and new car review
When I reviewed the previous version of the Mazda6 I figured it was a guaranteed winner -- it was roomy, cushy, and fantastic to drive. But when mid-size sedan sales fell off a cliff in 2009, the Mazda6 managed to plummet even further than the competition. Now we have an all-new Mazda6, and before I even drove it, I knew my fellow hacks and I would love it. But it's the market, not the critics, who determine a car's success -- so is the 2014 Mazda6 the right car for John and Jane Q. Public?

2013 Subaru BRZ - Test drive and review

2008 Volkswagen Jetta SE - Test Drive and Review
The Jetta sedan is the best-selling car in Volkswagen's model lineup.

Has anything changed for 2008? Yes -- just enough, as it turns out, to change my opinion. Tested by Aaron Gold, your Expert to Cars at About.com.

The 2007 Pontiac G6 GT Convertible is Pontiac's (and parent company General Motors') first attempt at a hard-top convertible. The 2007 Pontiac G6 GT convertible is also one of the few cars to compete in the mid-size convertible segment; its priced favorably against the Chrysler Sebring and Toyota Solara, and it offers the novelty of a retractable hardtop.

2013 Honda Fit - Test Drive and Review
It's been almost five years since I reviewed a Honda Fit, and while a lot has changed in the subcompact market, the Fit hasn't -- aside from a minor update last year, the 2013 Honda Fit is pretty much the same car Honda introduced in 2009. I expected to find the Fit trailing its newer competitors, but a week with this car has convinced me that it's still the most useful and practical small car you can buy. 2013 Honda Fit: Tested and reviewed by Aaron Gold, your Guide to Cars at About.com.

2006 Honda Civic Hybrid - Test Drive and Review
The 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid will attract attention for its high fuel economy (how's 50 MPG grab you?).
