2014 Kia Soul Review: Disneyland Road Trip

2014 Kia Soul: Perfect for a girls’ road trip

We recently spent a week with the Kia Soul, the urban hatchback car that it seems everyone is talking about. We used the Soul to drive around town, back and forth to school, and for a girls’ only road trip to Disneyland. My very favorite thing about the Soul is the panoramic sunroof!  The glass closer to the front of the car fully opens, while the glass towards the back allows light in. It’s the fun of a convertible without all…

Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition: A Family Review

Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition 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 it. My husband loved it. It’s comfortable, it’s fast, it’s safe–It is a pretty amazing truck. Exterior Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert allow the…

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. I drove a few friends to dinner one night and everyone was comfortable in both the front and back seats. Running errands was a breeze!…

Buick Encore: A Busy Mom's Review

Buick Encore 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 gas money that we saved while driving it! The four-wheel drive model Encore offers an estimated 25 MPG (city) and 33 MPG (highway). With a standard…

Tackling My Bucket List With The Ford C-Max

Tackling My Bucket List With The Ford C-Max #CMaxDrive

Drive the California coastline. Check. See the Golden Gate Bridge. Check. Road trip with a girlfriend? Check. Check. Drive a… Ford C-Max? Check. I didn’t even know it was on my bucket list, but driving a Ford C-Max Hybrid down the California coastline was definitely bucket list-worthy. Have you driven a C-Max Hybrid yet? It’s fun. No, seriously. It’s a fun car to drive! The LCD cluster-panel gives you real time feedback on your driving, including grading your stops with the…

GMC Terrain

My Week With The 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 amazing GMC corporate trio (Joe, Lisa, and Andrea) at BlogHer last month. They took the MomMob out for breakfast at an amazing diner and wowed…
