Car Review: 2007 GMC Acadia
January 22, 2009, 10:31 AM
My crossover SUV is a 3.4L V6 with dual overhead camshafts (DOHC) and pulls around 275HP. CONS: This vehicle’s power train is not for serious off road driving or heavy towing. Front struts and independent rear suspension does not offer a smooth ride. Cheap “plastic looking” dashboard. PROS: Because is a Front wheel drive model I get up to 24MPG highway which is very good for the 8 passenger and cargo capacity. The seats slide and fold for a wide access to the third row. Stereo easy to read and use, with a mp3 player jack for my ipod. We like the dual air conditioner climate zone controls for driver and front passenger.
Car Review: 2005 GMC Sierra Denali
January 18, 2009, 03:18 PM
Our Sierra Denali 2005 extended cabin is as comfortable as a luxury sedan, very roomy in the back, the kids love to watch their favorites DVD movies on the rear seats entertainment system. With its 6.0L V8 engine and 345 Horse Power we are able to tow up to 8,000 pounds. One very nice feature is that the all wheel drive system does not require the driver activation of the front wheels traction. We get 14-16 miles per gallon.
Car Review: 1995 Chevrolet S10
January 04, 2009, 10:22 PM
Our S10 Pickup Extended Cab with 5-speed manual gearbox and the 2.2L 4-cylinder engine was cheap on gasoline, good little pickup to carry few tools and small load of materials to do small jobs. Both front ball joints replaced at around 85,000 miles. Trouble with the windshield wiper motor and the A/C compressor also went out.
Car Review: 2005 GMC Savana 1500
December 29, 2008, 10:18 PM
I drove a GMC Savana 1500 cargo van for almost 3 years around the San Francisco Bay Area as well cities like Santa Rosa, Modesto and Davis. As a cargo vehicle the performance was amazing, capable to carry a lot of weight and runs smoothly with excellent brakes response. In the outside is a tough car. In the inside the seats arm rest are really weak, but it has a strong A/C. Without any mayor mechanical trouble other than replacing a couple brake light bulbs and a few fuses, I would say that the overall weakness is the low gasoline mileage.
Car Review: 2005 Volkswagen GTI
December 22, 2008, 10:17 AM
I like driving the Volkswagen GTI, the Tiptronic Automatic Transmission is fun to drive. Nice interior, great response, good brakes. Something to be careful of is that you better replace the engine oil and filter every 3,000 miles to keep the engine in good condition. Easy to park in San Francisco. The 4-Cyl. 1.8L Turbo is a gas saver 24-31 MPG.
Car Review: 1995 Ford Escort
December 18, 2008, 09:00 AM
I bought my Ford Escort 95 with around 10,000 miles. Right away the very first week it began to overheat, on my way to the dealer to have it check the car broke down in the middle of the freeway. They said that the radiator fan stopped working. After fixing this problem, it continued overheating. Plus countless troubles with the A/C, electric windows, noisy engine and brakes, this is the worst automobile I have owned.

Comment: Plug and Play!
November 20, 2008, 11:04 PM
Apparently, those who want one of these need to have a garage to park the car in and willing to pay around $800/month, one year lease.
