2016 Mazda6 i Grand Touring Review

Mazda 6 Review

I test drove the 2016 Mazda6 i Grand Touring for a week and was so impressed! It’s a great around-town car and the driving features such as cruise control completely impressed me. Now that the boys are getting older, it’s time that we could think about downsizing to a smaller car. The gas mileage in the Mazda6 averages…

Kia Sedona Parent Review

Kia Sedona Parent's Review

I think I should start by telling you that we’re not a minivan family. We’ve never had one, and I just don’t see us in one. But then the Kia Sedona came along and make me rethink that.   The Sedona didn’t feel like a minivan with all of the luxurious bells and whistles it…

2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Review

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Review

We recently spent a week with the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, the biggest small car we have ever driven. You wouldn’t know it from looking at the outside, but the space in this car is surprisingly big inside! Here’s our parent-perspective review. We were pleasantly surprised by the room in the Outlander–we successfully took it to Costco for…

Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition Review

Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition: A Family Review

I spent a week driving the new king of Toyota’s truck line-up: the 2014 Toyota Tundra 1794 CrewMax 4×4. Wow. That’s my big take away. The truck is huge. HUGE. We’re using to driving big cars, so that wasn’t anything new. The interior space inside the Tundra was something I didn’t expect. The boys loved…

2014 Toyota Highlander Review

2014 Toyota Highlander Review

I recently reviewed the 2014 Toyota Highlander for a week and to be honest… fell in love. The 2nd row of captain’s chairs makes it easy to get to the back row. We also loved the fold-down table between the chairs. There was plenty of room in the back seat for little (and big) legs….

Buick Encore Review

Buick Encore: A Busy Mom's Review

This vehicle was loaned to us for the purpose of a review. As always, all opinions are my own.  We test drove the 2014 Buick Encore for one week and loved having the luxury feel of a Buick in a smaller crossover vehicle. Perhaps the best thing about the Encore for our family was the…

Tackling My Bucket List With The Ford C-Max

Drive the California coastline. Check. See the Golden Gate Bridge. Check. Road trip with a girlfriend? Check. Check. Drive a… Ford C-Max? Check.

My Week With The GMC Terrain

GMC Terrain

I love my car. That being said, I’m getting about 14 miles per gallon out of it. Did I mention that I live about 15 miles from civilization? So, yes. One gallon of gas (or $3.20ish) to get to the store. It’s getting old. We were thinking about downsizing, and like magic, I met the…
