    2017 Toyota Corolla iM - (CVT)

    This Toyota iM is an amazing car. 1st of all, I want to explain that I am an ex race car driver, when I rate this car an overall 5, I mean it. With a 7 speed auto shift transmission, it flies. The handling is on a par with any sports car I have ever driven save the Mini Cooper, which is a class by itself. I have never been so happy with a car as I am now. The rims are superb, the styling exciting, the performance amazing. I could easily put this car on the track and beat a bunch of cars. Love

    2017 Toyota Corolla iM - (CVT)

    I have had the car for about two months, I used to race sports cars. This Toyota iM, is an amazing, quick & nimble, great looking and useful car. The transmission is a CVT, as was my previous car, This one handles better than some cars I have raced. Barcelona Red Metalflake is gorgeous. I love it already, lane departure warning as well as lane departure warning, Bluetooth, I use Pandora and I love it better than Sirius. No cost. Backup camera the works, Stops on a dime.

    2017 Subaru Crosstrek - Premium (CVT)

    The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek Premium Model is a dinosaur, bulky and slow. In need of the evolution coming in the 2018 model. DO NOT BUY. WAIT!!! Not a Top Safety Pick without Eyesight. Looks cute and AWD is nice. The tires are as poor as they came be (UTQG 320 B A). People deserve better from Subaru.

    2011 Cadillac SRX - Luxury Collection FWD

    The SRX is a quiet, comfortable ride loaded with features. Unfortunately, the mechanical reliability is less than stellar. At 112k miles, the check engine light indicates the timing chain needs replacing at a cost of nearly $2000. Yesterday it needed a front wheel bearing replacement. I've owned almost every make of car in my 52 years of driving and never needed a wheel bearing replacement, but then I never owned a Cadillac. Looks like this will be my first and last Cadillac.

    2002 Lincoln LS - V8 Auto Premium (210A)

    Power and speed to spare. The design is conservative if not "classic." It has vertical rear window separating the cabin from the rear deck, making LS look good from every angle. The car hasn't shown a spot of rust in 18 Wisconsin winters (no garage). One major complaint: after 16 years the cooling system leaked freon. Either must fix it before summer (cost: 2K) or trade it in. (A steal for 5K.) Replacement: Continental? MKZ? (Both anticlimactic after an LS.)

    2004 Toyota Corolla - CE (A4)

    Have had excellent service. Types of tires used determines interior noise on freeways. In the 13 years I have replaced the alternator, starter, serpentine belt, oil of course-2 times a year. Tires go about 40k, and the gas mpg is 40 on freeway trips whether or not loaded and a/c on at 70mph. I do hate but have become accustomed to the self locking feature. Even if the windows are down or hood/trunk are open the doors can self lock. Keep keys handy. there is no pattern to self locking.
