CarCorner Review: 2012 Camaro ZL1 – Lots of show with plenty of go

By Cathy Droz and Bill Zervakos – It was just a few years ago that I talked about how much fun it was for me to see the pony car wars heating up again. I was of course, talking about the Mustang, Camaro and Challenger hitting the streets with plenty of muscle along with nifty […]

CarCorner Review: 2012 Mini Coupe

By Cathy Droz and Bill Zervakos – It goes without saying that the new Mini Coupe makes people do a double take – from its shallow-rake windshield to the integral roof spoiler and wing that deploys from the trunk lid. My guess is the Coupe is going after “driving machine” enthusiasts in a way that the […]

CarCorner Review: 2013 Lexus ES350 & ES300h

By Cathy Droz and Bill Zervakos – The new ES models have some changes worth noting both inside and out. On the outside, the new spindle grille, which will be standard on all Lexus models, stands out. You will notice the grilles are edged by wide headlamps, a dramatic new look that truly compliments the […]

CarCorner Review: 2012 Nissan Quest 3.5 LE

By Cathy Droz and Bill Zervakos – The minivan has certainly evolved over the years, with its functionality improving and with more creative ways to stow seating and increase cargo area. But the one thing that sticks out for me, and apparently a lot of others judging by the number of comments I received, is the […]

CarCorner Review: 2012 Audi TTS 2.0 Quattro Roadster

2012 Audi TTS 2.0 Quattro Roadster

By Cathy Droz and Bill Zervakos – Introduced more than a decade ago, the Audi TT features an intriguing design, and the second-generation 2012 Audi TTS adds some substance to the style, with more power under the hood and sharper handling in the curves. Offered as either a 2+2 coupe or a roadster, the TTS returns […]

CarCorner Review: 2013 Chevrolet Malibu ECO

By Cathy Droz and Bill Zervakos – Chevrolet’s first global midsize sedan and will be sold in countries on six continents. It sports a new design with Camaro rear styling, which I’ll reserve judgment on for the moment, and a nicer interior that offers comfort and space and with a GM estimated 37 highway mpg. […]

CarCorner Review: Nissan Titan CC 4X4 SV

By Cathy Droz and Bill Zervakos – The 2012 Nissan Titan comes in four trim levels: S, SV, SL and the off-road oriented PRO-4X. It offers a choice of King or Crew Cabs, but does not offer a regular cab model or an eight-foot bed. A six-foot-seven-inch bed comes standard with the King Cab and a five-foot-seven-inch bed […]

2012 Nissan Murano SL FWD

By Cathy Droz and Bill Zervakos – First introduced as a 2003 model, Nissan’s midsize crossover received its first redesign as an early 2009 model after a hiatus in 2008. The Murano comes in either front-wheel, or all-wheel drive, and is available in S, SV, SL or LE trim levels with my tester coming being […]

CarCorner Review: 2012 BMW 650i Coupe

2012 BMW 650i coupe

By Cathy Droz and Bill Zervakos  – There’s a lot of hyperbole about how great a driving machine a car is and of course we all know that BMW coined the phrase The Ultimate Driving Machine and while with some vehicles it may be a bit of a stretch, the 2012 650i certainly lives up to the […]
