DETROIT, MI -- Sometimes when test driving a car you get
caught in real world conditions and you find out how good a vehicle really is
on a day-to-day basis. That’s what happened with the 2009 Toyota Matrix S.
Right now you may be in the midst of putting away all of your holiday decorations; taking down the lights, the wreaths, the tree ornaments. Well I have decided to leave mine up a while longer. The festive décor will help to keep things a bit brighter during the shorter winter days. Besides, right now I am preparing for a much more important event: clearance shopping season.
DETROIT, MI – The Lexus LS 600h L sedan is a 5,000 lb contradiction.
It’s a hybrid; that’s what the h signifies. And as a hybrid it is meant to be easy on gasoline. But the car I test drove had a base price of $104,900. Add on extras, and there weren’t many, and the sticker rose to $116,759. My point is that somebody who can afford the LS 600h L you’d think really isn’t too concerned about the price of gasoline or how much of the stuff the car is burning.
