Despite its age, the Infiniti Q60 convertible — formerly known as the Infiniti G37 hard-top convertible — is actually quite good. Still, as I discovered recently, there’s one feature that lets the car down almost every time you start the car.
I was in for a surprise when a 2013 Hyundai Genesis V-6 sedan test car was parked in front of an upscale steakhouse in San Diego. The experience made me think about how the Genesis sedan has aged since the upstart first attempted to challenge far more expensive vehicles. So what did I think about the car?
With a number of outlets preparing First Drive road tests of the new 2014 Toyota Corolla, I knew I had to think creatively to set apart the coverage of Motor Trend from our competitors. And in a special and exclusive WOT blog post discussed below, that’s exactly what I did.

BMW’s wildly successful 3 Series sedan lineup expands for the 2013 model year with a controversial new base model called the 320i. The compact, premium sports sedan got my attention with its decent performance, but made me question BMW with the car’s deceptive pricing structure.

The continuously variable transmission (CVT) in the Nissan Altima scares enthusiasts and mainstream consumers, but in the second Motor Trend long-term update, I discuss what it’s like to live with a CVT-equipped car. From the amusing sound the car makes to how the CVT affects the acceleration’s smoothness, the comprehensive update thoughtfully discusses it all.
