I recently rented a beautiful white 2015 C300 with the AMG Sport package.

It was a somewhat underwhelming experience. Perhaps my expectations were too high or the floor has been raised substantially...

1990 Honda Accord EX | Retro Review - MotorWeek

I still can't believe how well this car as aged. In retrospect, it looks more European than ever.

It's wild how far cars have come in the last 10 years.

An entry-level Honda Accord now has the same technology features (if not more) as my 2006 Acura RL.

The Audi (if specified) has some wild...

You're correct. I misspoke.

I drive my car hard, but I seldom redline it or launch it.

But I'm in boost all the time and I row through the gears like a trucker through the Rocky Mountains.

I also...

The torque is absurd in this car, for better or worse. You'll pass anything on the highway with almost no issue, but you'll shred your tires at any speed under 25mph.

It's a stout platform and I...

All engines heat soak, but only turbochargers contain heat as a method of energy scavenging. This increases the heat in both the oil and coolant systems just to keep the turbo cool. Add in a...

I can say without a shadow of a doubt that a turbocharged car in any climate where temperatures aren't below 70F sucks. The inconsistencies in performance eliminate whatever advantage the engine has...

Not to mention oil dilution. This is already a problem with Honda's 1.5 turbo.

There are some very minor similarities, but the RS is an open deck block compared the closed deck of the ST.

The pistons of the RS are also stouter with more oil passages for better cooling. The...

MFT is perfectly fine. It's a little laggy compared to an iPhone and most NEW infotainment systems, but it's comparable to Honda's system in the Civic and CRV. The Sync3 system is probably one of the...

I've owned a 2014 Focus ST since new. I'm at 70k miles now.

It has been a fantastic car with zero issues. My car is barely modified with only an aftermarket filter + Stratified 93/E30 tune.

I rather like the Ford Fusion Energi Platinum. They depreciate like a Ford (less the F150) so used prices offer *a lot* of value while still offering great fuel economy. The "Platinum" trim is filled...

Power is technically adequate. The powerband reminds me of the Integra GSR, but it does have a really odd torque dip between 3-5000 RPM that forces you to wring its neck in order to get it to...
