Say it with me: 2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited. That's the one you want. That's the car I didn't want to give back. You see, I've had a love-hate relationship with anything smaller than a mid-size SUV since gas prices went up. I bought my first sedan when I was 20 and I've been stuck with one since. They get great gas mileage and for that, I love them. But, they're not what I gravitate towards. The 2015 Toyota Avalon changed that. I'd buy one of these, the Hybrid in the Limited edition mind you, tomorrow, if I were shopping for a sedan. Why?
The 2015 Lexus RX Hybrid introduced me to upscale hybrid crossovers. I've driven a few crossovers, but nothing you'd expect to be high-class, and certainly none that were hybrids. Heck, I've only driven a few hybrid sedans. I was expecting to fall in love with the luxury the Lexus brand is known for, and disappointed with the hybrid engine. The opposite was true. The Lexus RX wasn't as high-end as I'd expected. The hybrid engine left nothing wanting. There was plenty of power and it was actually really fun to drive. This is coming from a girl who loves V8 engines and grew up driving large trucks,
You all know I was excited about the Tech and Travel Roadshow and getting to attend the Dallas Auto Show. Well, it was an amazing two days and I had fun. I drove a Camero. See? Fun. Tech and Travel Roadshow Event If you're a blogger and you love technology and travel, you need to make it out to one of these events hosted by Techcilicious and Traveling Mom. Besides for a brief presentation and getting to meet-up with local bloggers in your niche, it's a great opportunity to connect with companies in your niche in an intimate setting.

We have a Toyota Camry and before purchasing it we put a lot of time into researching cars, trying them out and talking to car owners before we decided what we wanted. So when Toyota asked if I'd like to drive the all new 2015 Camry XSLE for a week I was really excited to compare it to our 2010 Camry XLE and see how it measured up to the car we drive every day and love. Small Car, Tall Guy. And Child Seats. Our little family of four can still call a sedan a family car. Sometimes. Our biggest issue is my husband's height. Of all the mid-full size sedans we've tried, the Camry is the only one he can sit
Monday evening I'm dropping the kids at grandma's house and headed to Ft. Worth and Dallas for 2 full days of geeky automobile fun! If you haven't noticed from poking around here on my blog or following me on my social channels, I love cars and reviewing new vehicles is one of my favorite perks of working online! First up, #TNTFtWorth Roadshow! Tuesday morning will start bright and early with a tour of the Chevrolet plant in Arlington, TX. I'm really excited about the plant tour. I've been to a lot of media days and even toured the head quarters at Ford and driven on their test track, but I've never
Never ever ever. Those are the words I've always said when people have hinted at me someday needing a minivan. My family made it up to 8 kids and back down to two at home without ever stooping to minivan status. Surely they aren't a necessity. And a minivan could never be cool. Or so I thought. A few months ago we went on a road trip. 14 hours from Texas to Florida. We rented a minivan. By the time that trip was over I was warming up to the idea that at least for trips, minivans are practical. Then Toyota lent me a 2015 Sienna and my mind was made up. If ever I need a minivan, Sienna is the one
