2018 Audi SQ5 Review: The “S” Is for Special
Earlier this year, I reviewed the 2018 Audi Q5. I wasn’t used to Audi SUVs as I generally get behind the wheel of their sedans (and thoroughly enjoy myself). But I did enjoy my time in the redesigned Q5 as well.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander 3.0 GT Review: The Road Well Traveled
The first Mitsubishi that I ever came into close contact with was my dad’s Colt hatchback. Rebadged as a Dodge, the five-door was a daily-driven delight. With a manual gearbox, stellar fuel economy, room aplenty for baby seats, and nary a mechanical issue to be seen over multiple years.
