2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Once again the CarGurus team has put together an interesting review of the 09 ZR1 ‘vette.  This car has amazing power and potential. If you have ever watched the C6 series Corvettes racing in the American Le Mans series you know what I mean.  This car is slated to go down in history. 

The CarGurus View

The ZR1 is brutal, almost atavistically so. Imagine a Neanderthal with an aluminum bat; all of the force with none of the vulgarity. If you’ve got the money, and a desire to shame Ferrari owners, go for it. Read More…

CarGurus has published a review of the 2009 Nissan Maxima. This venerable car has been around for a very long time, although the Nissan Altima has recently stolen the show. According to CarGurus that is now changing.

The CarGurus View

The Nissan Maxima has long deserved an overhaul, and the 2009 model takes the first steps in reinvigorating the look and feel of the full-size sedan. With upgrades to the engine and platform, and sharper lines to its profile, the ’09 Maxima is once again fun to drive. The only significant drawbacks in this era of high gas prices come from its low fuel economy and premium gas requirement. Read more…

CarGurus published its review of the 2009 Tesla Roadster.  Without dealerships throughout the country though it will remain a rare car indeed regardless of the price.  I certainly do not want to be living in New England with the closest service being located in LA.

The CarGurus View

The trend-setting Tesla Roadster certainly demands all the attention it has received over the past couple of years, and the slightly revised 2009 version improves on the original, but limited production numbers and a high pricetag mean the Tesla won’t enter the mainstream anytime soon, so we’ll wait for the rumored lower-priced Tesla family car to see if an electric vehicle can gain traction in the mainstream marketplace.

The CarGurus View

You honestly can’t do better than the Escape Hybrid in 2009. With a mileage rating that was already the best in the SUV market, this year’s improvements in both performance and efficiency are hard to argue with. If you can find one, and don’t mind the price you’ll pay for a well-equipped version, grab it. Read More…

The CarGurus View

With an MPG rating that was already the best in the SUV market, this year’s improvements in both performance and efficiency are hard to argue with. That said, with a redesign last year and this many improvements for 2009, many 2008 owners are feeling a bit jilted. If you’re looking for an Escape, wait until the 2009s show up. Read more
