2013 Chevrolet Traverse
When Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder says large-family-vehicle shoppers would be "nuts" not to consider the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse, he means the Traverse-averse literally should seek psychiatric help. Although we weren't crazy about the Traverse in a 2012 three-row crossover comparison, the 2013 model is strong, with improved exterior styling, upgraded interior materials and a comfortable ride in all three rows. Beware, however, of lackluster multimedia controls and a squeaky center console, he cautions.





2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 Convertible: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 Convertible made its official debut at the New York Auto show just last night with an LT4 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine expected to deliver at least 625 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of torque. This is the first Z06 convertible that's been offered since way back in 1963. The supercharged LT4 comes with a seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match and has an available 8L90 eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. The seven-speed manual features rev-matching for upshifts and downshifts and a new dual-mass flywheel and dual-disc clutch improve shift quality and feel through lower inertia.

2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR Quick Take Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR is a special addition VW Beetle. With a production run of just 3500 units worldwide, this sporty version of the Beetle harkens back to the GSR (Gelb Schwarzer Renner or "Yellow Black Racer") introduced forty years ago. The VW Beetle GSR marks the debut of the new EA888 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder TSI engine which generates 210 horsepower. You'll also see this engine on the Jetta GLI and Beetle turbo for the 2013 model year and it'll give them an additional 10 horsepower.

Classics Revealed: The Original Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) An Original Volkswagen Beetle Convertible is a rare car indeed. Well at least rare when it comes to the classic VW Beetle. While they build over 300,000 of first generation Beetle convertibles, they built over 21 million of the same basic car but with a hard top. Recently Volkswagen rolled out the 3rd generation of the iconic Beetle at the LA Auto Show but at the same time they brought some of the original convertibles to California. In the exclusive TFLcar video we drive an original 1979 1500 cc fuel injected model that had only 250 miles on the clock when we took the wheel. In fact this museum car from Germany is a time machine straight from the factory floor.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF Redesigning retro is a herculean task. You need to change the vehicle enough to be worth the effort, meanwhile maintaining an iconic retro theme. If you don't change enough, shoppers won't see a reason to trade in their old flashback for the new time capsule. Change it too much and you're left with a caricature. The task is so daunting that few even attempt it. (Just look at the one-hit-wonders: PT Cruiser, HHR, SSR and Thunderbird.)VW on the other hand is different. After all they continued to build and sell the same Beetle with minor tweaks for 65 years straight. If anyone can tweak retro and convince people they need it, it's VW. Sure enough, 2012 was the best Beetle sales year since 1973. As a chaser to VW's revived retro-mojo, the Beetle is now offered sans-top and VW tossed us the keys to a brown-on-brown model for a week so we could get our 70s on. Can you dig it? This Beetle, like the old "New Beetle," sells on nostalgia and cutesy-bubbly good looks. In fact, the first words anyone utters upon seeing a Beetle are: "aww, its cute." See the problem? How many guys buy "cute" cars? Recognizing the problem, VW set out to "butch things up" with the second generation FWD Beetle. The bubbly-fenders, round headlamps and "smiling" hood lines haven't left but they have been joined by VW's corporate "Gillette" grille, sharper corners and more "masculine" tail lamps. (Or so I'm told.) The redesign also adds an incredible 3.5 inches to the Bug's width and 5 inches to the length. The extra length means the Bug's side profile is no longer semi-circular, something of a loss for retro fans. The wider stance and crisper creases do make Herbie look meaner, but the ginormous fenders make him look fatter as well. Sorry '70s fans, our chocolate brown Bug didn't come with a built-in CB radio. Burn! Instead shoppers will need to get hip with the 21st century, VW style. Base drop-tops get an AM/FM radio, single slot CD player, Bluetooth speaker phone/audio streaming and VW's USB/iDevice interface (MDI). Working your way up the ladder, the next stop is the touchscreen audio system which adds HD Radio, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and am MP3 compatible CD reader (why is there no 1990s edition?). You won't find a air-cooled engine in this Beetle, this isn't the '50s. Base Beetles (and the '50s and '70s edition models) use VW's refreshed 2.5L inline 5-cylinder engine which gets a 20 HP bump to 170 at 5,700RPM while torque creeps up to 177 lb-ft at 4,250 RPM. VW mates the 5-banger to a 5-speed manual and for an extra $1,100 you can opt for the 6-speed automatic. If you need more shove, you can opt for VW's ubiquitous 2.0L turbo, good for 200 ponies and 207 lb-ft of twist. A first for America (as far as I know), VW's topless cruiser can now be had in oil-burning form with the same 140 HP 2.0L TDI powerplant as the Jetta. Both 2.0L mills are mated to VW's slick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission or for $1,100, VW's latest 6-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission. How well the Beetle accelerates and handles is unlikely to matter to prospective convertible shoppers. I'm not kidding. There isn't a drop top I can think of that has better performance metrics than its hard-top donor car, that's just the nature of the beast. Convertibles are all about open air motoring and style, something thee Beetle, despite all of its flaws, still has in spades. VW's infotainment options feel like they are stuck in 1990, the lack of power front seats and automatic climate control irk me to no end, and the 2.0L engine needs a testosterone injection, yet the Beetle's topless charm is enough for me to overlook its flaws. There is only one problem: Herbie's still cute. Go figure. Music by Kevin MacLeod

Chevrolet Malibu Trims: i Sport, i Touring, i Grand Touring What I have to say about the 2014 6: Mazda has redesigned the 6 for 2014 and it was needed. The previous generation 6 was falling short in sales compared to the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, however Mazda knows that it is highly unlikely that the 6 will meet up to the Accord and Camry. The 6 is the BMW of midsize sedans, which it really does feel like a BMW which is pretty good. Material quality is also up for 2014 and everything seems well put together and not cheap. The Electronics/Technology is good in the 6, but the Navigation unit still remains behind the times, however you do have Pandora now. The engine is also super fuel efficent which is good in order to compete in the midsize sedan class, the Nissan Altima is almost head to head with the 6 in fuel efficency. On top of all that, the most important facotr that Mazda uses to lure in buyers is the zoom zoom driving dyanmics and it does gice alot of feedback which is very important. All in all way better than the previous generation.
