Lexus IS-F, Part 4

Why You Should Buy This Car:
Lightning-fast acceleration, massive globs of handling and most likely the finest brakes we've ever stomped. World-class performance from an unlikely source, and that equals stealth. The eight-speed transmission means even with performance on par with the competition, you 'll get better… » 11/08/07 11:45am 11/08/07 11:45am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2007 Ford Shelby GT500, Part 3

Why You Should Buy This Car: Drop-kicking the accelerator is like hitting a crack pipe; the rush is outright mad, instantly exhilarating and altogether unhealthy. A lack of German engineering in a car this powerful is refreshing. The GT500 is as American as Marlboro Reds, 72oz steaks and adult-onset diabetes;… » 11/29/06 1:00pm 11/29/06 1:00pm

Jalopnik Reviews: 2007 Ford Mustang GT California Special, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: You like American cars — big, fast and sloppy at the limit. (If they weren't, what would Euro snobs have to brag about, soccer?) To your mind, dumping the clutch never died, it just faded away. You consider the Shaker 1000 stereo to be what the Infiniti G35's Studio on Wheels by Bose is… » 10/20/06 1:20pm 10/20/06 1:20pm

Jalopnik Reviews: 2007 Mazda CX-7 Grand Touring AWD, Part 3

Why You Should Buy This Car: You like sitting up high, but need a semblance of sport from your car. You think "drug-addled catfish" is the new design chic. You're five-and-a-half feet tall and prefer just to step sideways to get in and out. You need to lug a few cases of wine home after the Thursday-night tasting. » 10/11/06 3:23pm 10/11/06 3:23pm

Jalopnik Reviews: 2007 Mazda MX-5 Miata Power Retractable Hardtop, Part…

Why You Should Buy This Car: You are passionate about driving. You like embarrassing Solstice drivers. Power slides are your thing. You drift in your sleep. You understand that for the money, this is the best car on the road. » 9/01/06 1:00pm 9/01/06 1:00pm

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: You want a performance car that's friggin' sweet but need four doors or all-wheel-drive; you like humiliating Corvette owners.
Why you shouldn't buy this car: You're a little too mature to have a giant wing on your car, or you're not interested in insurance premiums as high as your car… » 6/14/06 6:30pm 6/14/06 6:30pm

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). The GTI is also an ideal chariot for less adrenal enthusiasts… » 4/08/06 5:54pm 4/08/06 5:54pm

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 Ford Fusion, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: For a commodious family four-door, the Fusion s priced right, undercutting its rivals by some margin. (Depreciation is another matter.) The Fusion s also a bit of a handler, both nimble and tenacious through the twisties. » 12/09/05 11:00am 12/09/05 11:00am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 Honda Civic, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: Because you collect Star Wars memorabilia. Either that or you appreciate all the traditional Civic virtues — practicality, frugality, reliability, comfort, value, invisibility, etc. — and want something relatively slow that handles like a go-kart. » 11/11/05 11:59am 11/11/05 11:59am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2005 Nissan Maxima SL, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: You're a multiple-personality type seeking a luxury fix, but would rather not have to pop a dramamine every time you buckle up. Or you'd rather be in a sports car, but have kids (or more than one friend) or suffer from that fear of being flattened by a wayward SUV. If you're a retiree who… » 10/19/05 10:52am 10/19/05 10:52am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 A4 Avant 2.0T Quattro, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: Audi makes the world s best car interiors. The A4 Avant is an Audi. Ingolstadt s mini-hauler offers fit and finish fetishists an unparalleled opportunity to satisfy the strange demands of their incurable affliction. Even drivers who couldn t care less that all the car s switches respond… » 9/23/05 10:00am 9/23/05 10:00am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 BMW 325i, Part 3

Why you shouldn t buy this car: The 325i is not exactly handsome or particularly well-built, and there are plenty of meticulously-crafted, spicy hot Japanese sports sedans swirling around that give you more of everything for a lot less money. » 8/26/05 9:00am 8/26/05 9:00am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2005 Chevrolet Corvette C6, Part 3

Why you shouldn t buy this car: Chevy s new Vette is still plastic craptastic, and the Vette s image remains resolutely down-market. Amongst the sports car fraternity, the model still identifies its driver as a muscle head who doesn t know any better, or a middle-aged man who desperately wants to shag a woman younger… » 8/05/05 7:50am 8/05/05 7:50am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 BMW 750i, Part 3

Why you shouldn t buy this car: If you grew up with Pong rather than Playstation, BMW s flagship luxobarge is not for you. You won t be able to manipulate the iDrive mouse controller without consulting your children — who should stay in their damn seats and not try to prove that they re smarter than you. The sedan s… » 7/22/05 9:41am 7/22/05 9:41am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 Dodge Charger R/T, Part 3

Why you shouldn t buy this car: The anti-four-door brigade has a point: the Charger R/T lacks charisma. While the Hemi lets rip in fine fashion, and The Dodge Boys have pumped-up the interior volume to proper Yank Tank proportions, there s really nothing to get all that excited about. A muscle car needs drama, flair… » 7/15/05 8:44am 7/15/05 8:44am
