When you are given the keys to a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, there is really only one thought that goes through your head: “Where can we get dirty?”

A couple of weeks ago I took a trip to Los Angeles to escape the never-ending winter of New England. When eBay Motors found out I’d be in LA, they asked me if I wanted to drive the new Lexus RC 350. Of course I said yes! Since I didn’t have much free time on this trip, I thought I’d take one day in LA with the RC 350,...

While some see the mid-size truck market as shrinking, GM begs to differ and has two new mid-size trucks to prove their commitment. Both the 2015 GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado challenge the notion that the mid-size truck is dying a slow death.

What We Like: Near luxurious interior material 360 degree around-view monitor Storage space What We Don’t Like: Lackluster driving experience Steering wheel buttons Lack of front cabin storage options The recently redesigned 2015 Nissan Rogue delivers a near-luxury like SUV for a much smaller price point. It does...

Landing at the Montreal, Canada airport in February, it is quickly apparent having a vehicle prepared for snowfall isn’t a maybe kind of thing. It is a necessity. Thanks to an invite to Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Winter Drive event, we put this necessity to the test. The answer to the test turned out to be quite...

For years, the words luxury, stylish and Camry didn’t go in the same sentence. Those days are gone and the new 2015 Toyota Camry XLE is anything but boring.

Volkswagen must have gotten tired of having to answer questions about why it won’t build a true competitor to cars like the WRX STI. Sure, the GTI has always been a brilliant little hot hatch, but it has also been a step behind in terms of sheer speed, and the R32 and previous generation Golf R didn’t spice things up...

For most Americans, cars are about getting from point A to point B as cheaply as they can. These people don’t want any fancy features, plush interiors or a strong power train. They want cheap and fixable with good fuel economy. If only they had an opportunity to drive a vehicle like the 2015 Dodge Charger AWD.

Introduced to the world at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the Land Rover Discovery Sport is an entirely new vehicle that heralds a new Discovery model line. This compact, three-row SUV is based on the Range Rover Evoque, but boasts a handsome design with near-perfect proportions, lots of glass, and room to spare for...

Grading the New 2015 Ford Mustang GT as a Family Hauler Likes: Sweet, sweet note of a good old American V8 Ample torque and power on tap A nice advancement of the classic design Dislikes: Driving it in the snow Tight backseat space Uninspired MPG I don’t know who was more excited to get the Mustang GT to evaluate,...

Likes: Impeccable exhausts systems Prodigious V12 power and intelligent suspension performance Desirable color combinations Dislikes: Tough visibility in Coupes It was a very enthusiastic, compelling and brilliant afternoon when Automotive Rhythms tested the 2015 family of Aston Martins in Westlake Village,...

Our post-post-modern age is subject to all kinds of ambiguities, sub-niches, gender-bending and confusion. In that sense, the BMW X4 that we recently drove for a week is a product of our times. It’s a coupe-like luxury crossover. For us, as delightful as the acceleration and handling was—after all, it’s a Bimmer—we...

The 2015 BMW X6 M is the baddest performance SUV or SAC (Sports Activity Coupe) on the market. With a combination of rabbit-like agility, turbo technology, high-performance braking and the intelligence of Apple’s iOS, this Bimmer Beast is more dominant than Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch on a go-kart. Acceleration? Check!...

What’s not to like about a Scandinavian designed ride? Volvos are savvy, unique, multi-talented and of course safe as a bank. Known for its line of family wagons and SUVs, the Chinese owned automaker is also a purveyor of fashionable sedans and convertibles.

The 2015 Volkswagen Golf R will soon hit showrooms in the US, and there’s good reason for American enthusiasts to be excited! On top of the awards given to the entire 7th generation VW Golf lineup, the Golf R has received awards from European media publications. Most notably, BBC Top Gear Magazine gave the Golf R...

How do you increase demand for your product? One way is to lower the price, and the other way is to raise the relative quality of your product. The Toyota Camry has been a bar-setting sedan for generations. But Toyota knows they won’t stay at the head of the pack by getting complacent. They have to keep things fresh...

Chrysler hit the nail directly on the head when launching their reinvented 2005 “300” to the world. Not to be outdone by the original 1955 model, the massively, brash grille, wide body, user-friendly controls and stylish wheel packages of this American standard set the market afire -- especially within the urban...

The Geolander H/T G056 is Yokohama’s long lasting all-season tire designed for small trucks and SUVs. With a 70,000 mile treadwear warranty, this highway terrain tire is engineered to provide years of trouble free driving, as well as exceptional all-weather handling. eBay Motors will be conducting an extended test of...

Starting at $61,250 and fully-equipped at $68,500, the Hyundai Equus is a relatively attainable luxury sedan and is also prices below its main competitor–the Lexus LS460–by at least $10,000. The exterior of the Equus may be unassuming looking vaguely like a Mercedes S-Class, but for 2014 it got a slightly refreshed...

The 2014 Kia Cadenza is new for the U.S. market and makes its debut with a whole host of modern luxury features. Kia is serious about playing in the big car program and created family sedan that is attractive, spacious, powerful, and delightful to drive.

It’s no secret that car enthusiasts love to hate on SUVs, as most just don’t perform well, especially compared to a well-designed coupe or sedan. Even your modern car-based crossover is just too tall, too heavy, and too likely to be stuck doing carpool duty to warrant any serious consideration from a performance...
