It’s Valentine’s Day, and those “sexiest cars” lists are rolling in. Silly? A little, but it’s too much fun not to play along. We looked at 2011 cars that were attainable (sorry, Dr. Porsche, Jaguar, Tesla), not overly obvious (Chevy Camaro, Ford Mustang, BMW 3-series), and sporting a noticeably new look. We like the Volvo C30, but it didn’t much improve a reliably pretty fleet. I haven’t driven all these vehicles, but over several years of test-driving I did race through several of these cars’ predecessors. You can still see the skid marks. Here, in random order, are my seven hot cars for Valentine’s Day 2011:
The demand for many used vehicles is high right now. Here are the most popular 2014 models for used vehicles.
Moms are a marketers dream. Lane Brown would know. She once worked full-time getting baby-toting women to buy, buy, buy. But now she's a stay-at-home-mom. The hunter has become the hunted.
Toyota, Honda, Nissan, and Mazda have issued global recalls of 3.4 million vehicles for faulty airbags that come from a single supplier. The recalled airbags could deploy with too much force, potentially causing fires and endangering passengers.
Honda recall: Honda Motor Co. said Thursday it was recalling more than 183,000 vehicles in the U.S., including the Acura RL, Acura MDX and Pilot models.
The 2013 Honda Civic has become the first compact car ever to earn the IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus designation. Engineering tweaks to the 2013 sedan and coupe led to the top tier designation.
Honda recall involves potentially missing rivets on airbag covers, which could cause them to deploy improperly. Some 748,000 late-model Pilots and Odysseys are part of the Honda recall.
Honda recall of more than 800,000 Odyssey minivans and Pilot SUVs is the latest in what has been a recall-filled year for the automaker. The latest Honda recall involves ignitions that can release the key even when the car is not in park, allowing the vehicles to roll away.
Honda recall involves 2002-06 models with switch that can cause fire. Beyond the Honda recall of the CR-V, the automaker in the past month has issued major recalls of Civics, Pilots, and Accords for various safety problems.
