The All-New 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Has It All! @Chrysler #Ad

    Let me begin by telling you all that I have never been a big fan of minivans.  When I was a teenager, my father had one and it was never my favorite vehicle of all the ones he had over the years.  Last Spring, we had the opportunity to check out the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and I definitely changed my mind!  This is definitely not my father's minivan!     Imagine my exhilaration this past month when I was told that I would actually have the opportunity to drive the new Pacifica and enjoy it with my family.  You guys know that I am always very honest with you guys about products or vehicles that I have had the pleasure, or displeasure, of reviewing with my family.  I simply cannot stop raving about how amazing this car is, it really does everything that you could possibly imagine a car doing.  Not to mention that it is just stunning to look at.     We … [Read more...]

Take A Sweet Ride In The Mazda6 i Grand Touring! #DriveMazda @MazdaUSA @DriveShopUSA #Ad

    It's a very rare occasion when I take a road trip or go away without the whole family in tow.  This past month, I had the opportunity to drive to Hershey, Pennsylvania for a media trip all on my own.  Since I usually drive larger cars that can accommodate my family of four, I was beyond thrilled to have the chance to drive the Mazda6 i Grand Touring for my three-hour drive to PA!     My first impression of the Mazda6 i was that it is an incredibly sporty and sleek vehicle.  A redesigned front fascia with signature front bumper and grille means business.  Available brilliant LED headlights and fog lights illuminate the road ahead—and save energy, too. The new available Active Grille Shutter automatically opens and closes in accordance with driving conditions for real-world gains in fuel economy.     It's interior design and technology also made me feel like I was in complete control.  MAZDA CONNECT™ let me control and … [Read more...]

Spring Into The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport! #DriveMitsubishi @Mitsucars @DriveShopUSA #Ad

    I am so excited that Sunday is the first day of spring!  It just so happens to also be my husband's birthday so it's a special day for two reasons.  This past winter, we had one of the worst blizzards in the history of New York City.  As we were buried in snow, all I could think about was cruising around in the warm weather and enjoying feeling the sun on my face.  Back then, it seemed like sunshine was a distant memory but now that we are headed into spring I am feeling hopeful about finally being able to enjoy some time outdoors.     Recently, I had the opportunity to spend some time driving the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and I realized that it is the perfect car for enjoying during the spring and summer.  Not that it isn't an awesome vehicle to enjoy all year long, but when you are driving a car that boasts an amazing panoramic sunroof, you want to be able to look up through it and see nothing but blue skies.  For those of you … [Read more...]

Adventures Of A New York City Family In The Mazda CX-9! #DriveSTI @MazdaUSA @DriveSTI #Ad

      It's no secret that we had an extremely rough winter here in New York City.  Aside from our hectic schedules throughout the work week, we also had to maneuver around all the snow and harsh weather to plan creative outings as a family.  The Mazda CX-9 was the perfect fit for our family to be able to spend quality time together this season!  Not to mention its gorgeous leather trim interior which was love at first sight for my husband and I!     Since I have an eleven year-old and a nine year-old, they always want to invite their friends and cousins on outings with the family.  That usually means that, aside from our medium-sized family of four, Hubby and I have to make sure that we have enough room in the car to safely accommodate everyone on road trips.  After all, not having enough space can make us lose serious cool points with the Tweens!     So we all packed in to the Mazda CX-9 and headed around New York for some weekend fun.  If you are familiar with the area … [Read more...]
