Keeping my family safe is a number one priority as a parent. Sure we can’t be everywhere with our kids and catch them on every fall but we can keep them safe while driving. Relying on Kelley Blue Book to choose the best family car is a no-brainer. They offer valuable information to get the specs and safety information you need when buying your next vehicle. I have been using Kelley Blue Book since I turned 16 as my parents taught me about it when buying my first car. Now that I have teenagers I am doing the same with…

The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace was a head turner when it was finally revealed at #NAIAS in Detroit this past weekend. You may think of the Beetle or Bus when it comes to Volkswagen but this was just the opposite. It is a three-row, seven-seat version of its second-generation Tiguan compact SUV and will be available for sale this year. Every little detail has been thought of in this new vehicle that I know you will all love. This information is sponsored by SheBuysCars.com.

We are all about cars in our family as my husband, father-in-law and son drag race. There is always a car in our garage getting worked on to ready to race. I never really knew or cared much about cars until I met my husband. Over the years I have learned so much about them and have helped him fix them. During racing season you can find us on the drag strip just about every weekend. When I got the invite to NAIAS I was super excited. Not because it is the largest car show but because I get to…

While I was visiting Orlando, Florida a few weeks ago I got the chance to test out the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring FWD and explore. When I picked it up, I instantly fell in love. First with the design and then with the drive. It comfortably seats 5 with plenty of leg room and space in the bag to store luggage, groceries, or anything else you need to haul. This crossover utility vehicle has the features of a sport utility vehicle along with features from a passenger vehicle. No matter what the weather was like the 2016 Mazda CX-5…

Sometimes I wonder how could we live without a smartphone as they are our guide to most things in life. But when it comes to smartphones do you have an unlocked phone?

I have always wanted to drive a sports car but never had the opportunity. Being a mom of 3,  I have the typical “Mom Van” that is by far not the glamorous thing to drive but it’s what you do for your kids. A few weeks ago I had the chance to partner up with Mazda and Drive to test out the new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring model. When this baby arrived in my driveway not only was I oohing and aahing over how tiny it was but ready for an out of this world experience. With just 2…

I can’t believe it has already been a year since I last tested out the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander which I already thought was a great vehicle. And recently I got the chance to test out the new 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander when I was on vacation in Florida. The 2016 model looks very different from the 2015 version and has been completely redone. One thing that is the same is that it still holds 7 passengers with the third row seating. And no that is not a typo. Even though this vehicle may have a sleek and smaller design it still…
