(May 7, 2013) We were a bit apprehensive when a 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS showed up for our 800-mile round-trip to a famous South Carolina resort island. We weren't apprehensive about the Sonic, which we had experienced in 2012, but about its size. We needed something that could haul four adults to various eating places and attractions around the island without compromising such things as leg room and comfort.
(March 21, 2013) We were impressed with the totally redesigned Hyundai Azera during a short driving event earlier this year. Our admiration increased after a 1,300-mile road trip that included long stretches of interstate highway as well as miles of winding, narrow mountain roads between Lynchburg, Tenn., and Goldsboro, N.C.
(June 16, 2011) ORLANDO, Fla. (PRNewswire-USNewswire) — American drivers love to spend their vacations hitting the open road. AAA anticipated nine out of 10 travelers over the recent Memorial Day holiday weekend took a road trip as opposed to traveling by plane, train or other mode of transportation.
For those in the market for a new vehicle that they hope to log plenty of miles in while traveling, AAA has released its top vehicle picks for road trips.
ASHEVILLE, N.C. — A gift certificate to a Skip Barber driving school or a pass to the Richard Petty Experience may be the ultimate stocking stuffer gift for the guy who loves sports cars or just wants to go real fast on a NASCAR track.
But what if the object of your holiday giving has a macho sport utility parked in the driveway and his passion is more for truck-based vehicles than race cars? Land Rover has just the ticket — a gift certificate to the Land Rover Experience Driving School.
More than once through the mountains of Colorado and into Yellowstone National Park and across Wyoming cattle country into the Black Hills of Dakota we heard praise for the 2009 Toyota Camry from the four people it was transporting on a 2,500-mile vacation late last fall. While our back-seat passengers commented favorably more than once on the roomy interior and comfortable seats, we were equally impressed with the gas mileage from the 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine powering our LE trim-line sedan.
