Jalopnik Reviews: 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Part 3

Why You Should Buy This Car: The 2007 Wrangler Rubicon is Jeep, not a Jeep. Like a Zippo or a pair of Levis, the Wrangler is an icon, and Jeep's perfected its looks. Best-in-class off-road performance. Best-in-several-other-classes off-road performance. Detachable front sway bar is the killer app. Much more livable… » 12/29/06 12:00pm 12/29/06 12:00pm

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 Hummer H3, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: You already have an H1 and an H2 and want to complete the set. You want a car that "feels safe." You're genuinely interested in off-roading. You want an SUV that actually looks like a truck instead of some warmed-over tall wagon. » 8/04/06 2:14pm 8/04/06 2:14pm

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 BMW M Roadster, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: Because it's a taut, brilliantly executed roadster in the tradition of great British roadsters — well, not exactly in their tradition.

Jalopnik Reviews: 2007 Saturn Sky, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: It's got those cool dent-resistant plastic hydroformed sheetmetal body panels. Really though, the Sky looks boss, especially for a car priced in the mid-20's.

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 Nissan Xterra, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: You'll never be late to a road-luge competition again. You feel others need to know how healthy and tan you are. Awesome rubber-coated cargo area is great for hauling your gear, bro. You can hide mass condoms in the First Aid kit. » 6/16/06 2:00pm 6/16/06 2:00pm

Jalopnik Reviews, 2006 Volkswagen Golf GTI, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: Vee Dub's $25k cruise missile is the financially challenged pistonhead's Porsche. We're talking maximum bang for the buck (discounting the cramped MINI Cooper S and pricier, harder-riding Subaru WRX STi and Mitsubishi Evo).

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo SE, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: When you were a penniless pre-pubescent pistonhead, a poster of a white Lamborghini Countach poster held pride of place on your bedroom wall, right next to the soft core porn shot of Cheryl Ladd in a bikini.

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 BMW M5, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: The new M5 is a supremely capable corner carver with epic thrust available at the top of the rev range. It s as close as you ll get to a four-door Ferrari — at least until the Aston Rapide and Porsche Panamera blow into town. » 1/28/06 9:23am 1/28/06 9:23am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 BMW 325ix Sport Wagon, Part 3
