Long-Term Road Tests

Read the latest test drive reports from our fleet of cars and trucks. Within the space of one year, we aim to put 20,000 miles on each of the road test vehicles, and we'll be taking pictures of the cars along the way. We want to know what it's like to actually live with and maintain each vehicle for a year. Check back daily for all the test drive news on your favorite car.
