What I think: 2012 Ford Fiesta

The Ford Fiesta makes a lot of promises to the driver looking for European performance in a subcompact car, but doesn’t deliver on all of them. Read my Autos.ca Test Drive here.

What I think: 2012 Volkswagen Jetta GLI

Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy a Jetta GLI, and that’s money well-spent on a budget-priced sport sedan. Read my Autos.ca Test Drive here.

What I think: 2012 Buick Verano

The hits keep coming from Buick, a brand trying to reinvent itself as hip and relevant after decades of selling stodgy, dull sedans. Its biggest engineering success so far is its smallest model, the compact Verano. Click here to read my Autos.ca Quick Spin of the 2012 Verano.

What I think: 2012 Scion iQ

The tiny Toyota-built Scion iQ wants you to think it’s a smart buy. But at nearly $17,000, you can do much better, value-wise. Click here to read my Autos.ca Test Drive.

What I think: Buying a used Nissan Quest

The third-generation Nissan Quest was a styling standout among a stodgy field of minivans, but it’s also a lesson in why standing out is not always worthwhile. Click here to read my Autos.ca Used Vehicle Review.

What I think: Buying a used MazdaSpeed6

The MazdaSpeed6, sold in 2006 and 2007, was a rarity in being a high-performance car based on a garden-variety family sedan, the Mazda6. With a turbocharged motor, all-wheel drive and the only transmission being a six-speed manual, this monster had all the right ingredients for four-door fun. The shame of it, is that it wasn’t built to withstand the rigours of being driven the way it was designed to be. Click here to read my Autos.ca used review of the MazdaSpeed6.

What I think: Buying a used Hyundai Genesis Coupe

It’s only been on the road for about three years, but I’m fairly confident in suggesting the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a well-built sports coupe that makes a smart used car buy. Check out my full review at Autos.ca.

What I think: Buying a used BMW Z4

Modern European luxury cars are famous for reliability problems, mostly linked to complicated electronics. BMW is certainly not immune, but here’s a car that the Bavarians apparently got right, in large part: the Z4 roadster is a unique-looking sports car that appears to be a fairly smart used car purchase.

What I think: 2012 Toyota Yaris

The 2012 Toyota Yaris takes the idea of a basic car to new levels. Overall, it’s easier to like than its predecessor, but the redesign doesn’t address a couple of the old car’s key flaws. Read my Autos.ca review here.
