Mazda’s newest crossover is the CX-5, a good-looking number that also boasts the best of Mazda’s fuel-saving SkyActiv technology.

What I think: Buying a used Cadillac STS

The 2005 STS brought rear-wheel drive performance back to Cadillac’s full-size sedan range. It was a promising move, but a few years later, it seems that this car doesn’t hold up its end where reliability is a concern. Click here to read my Autos.ca Used Vehicle Review.
