    Dreaded cyclists

    My main problem right now with most of the cyclists I encounter is their attitude towards the law; they only follow when it suits them.

    Unveiled: 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

    Powering a big truck is too much for a turbo-four. I think there must be a reason European car makers use turbodiesel sixes for trucks and vans but, what I think is largely irrelevant to US buyers.

    Unveiled: 2018 BMW X2

    Unveiled: 2018 BMW X4

    This is another one of those stupid cars that tries to be everything, but ends up being nothing. Not the best looking or most practical, or best to drive. Nothing. Take it away from my vision.

    Unveiled: 2017 BMW X3

    You buy a crossover when you don't know what else to buy. Crossovers are worse than than their wagon/estate counterparts in every practical way.
