My Thoughts Exactly: 2020 Volkswagen Passat

The North America-only NMS-platform B7 Passat arrived on the scene at the 2011 North American International Auto Show. The Chattanooga, Tennessee-produced mid-sized sedan caused quite a stir, even though Volkswagen had been known to produce localized products for specific segments.

One question I could ask is "why?" It is plainly obvious what that answer would be. Because you watched enough of Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker to understand why the A80 Supra became an icon.

My Thoughts Exactly: 2020 Kia Soul GT-Line Turbo

Prior to the rebranding of V&R, I would write up reviews of vehicles I rented. That way, I can wrap my head around how to approach each vehicle and evaluate it. It meant putting it through its paces and letting it live with me for the tasks each vehicle had to do.
