In this video, I’m asked about anti-freeze and whether a car needs it when it’s in the desert. It’s a good question as many people confuse “anti-freeze” and “coolant” in a vehicle.
In this Q&A, Garrett asks why all Subaru WRX STI owners don’t rally their cars. I answer his snarky question with some more snarky questions before talking about needs versus wants and how markets, specifically automotive, work. Mentions of toilet paper, the Trabant, and a few other things ensue. Enjoy!
In this shaky cam interior review, I get into the 2020 Toyota Corolla in its Hybrid format. This model is all-new and nicely done. It’s also the first 2020 model on the channel. Enjoy!

In this video, I begin a series of videos aimed towards identifying the best options for different buyers. Single parents, whether full-time or part-time custodians, have unique needs. If you have one or two kids and need a good vehicle for everyday that balances price, efficiency, and spaciousness, this list should get you started in your shopping process.
I don’t rank vehicles in a “top 5” or “best to worst” because everyone has different styles, wants, and needs. Instead, view these as a shopping list you can start from. I’ll do more videos aimed towards other demographics soon.
The choices for single parents are split into two groups: crossovers and cars. If you’d prefer one or the other, the lists are separated in the video and below. If you aren’t sure, look at both lists and go from there. The lists and my commentary organizes these vehicles by manufacturer in alphabetical order.
Below are links to reviews I’ve written for each of the vehicles detailed in this video.

A full review of the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado Bison, heavy on the off-road, with some comparisons between it and the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. The Bison is a great off-pavement rig with a lot of goodness. Plus I had it with the diesel engine, which I think is the only way to go.

This quick review of the 2019 Buick Envision includes my impressions of the crossover as a daily driver, for fuel economy, and more. All in all, a nicely done premium crossover in the small sized segment.

There have been a few convertible pickup trucks put into production. In this question and answer session, I show a few examples of topless pickups, using friends’ articles from Hagerty as well as my own from New Atlas to illustrate.
