Nissan shows off Smart Rearview Monitor
I love cool technology, and yesterday Nissan showed me another feature that might just have become my new favorite. I’m short, and sometimes when I have tall passengers or high rear headrests, my visibility out the rear window is obscured. The Smart Rearview Mirror (SRVM) is designed to make all those obstacles disappear in an... Read more »

First glance: 2013 Nissan Murano

First glance: 2013 Nissan Murano
I’m only mid-test in the 2013 Nissan Murano with all-wheel drive SV trim, but there’s one thing I can tell you for sure. I really, really like crossover. From it’s odd-ball shape to it’s smooth acceleration, there really isn’t much I don’t like about the Murano. A few highlights before the test week is over:... Read more »

Nissan Juke: quirky or ugly?

Seriously … Tell me what you think. Is it a bullfrog or a crouching tiger waiting to pounce? The all-new Nissan Juke is certainly unusual, and it invariably incites a visceral response. What’s yours. Do you love it? Hate it? Would you buy it?

Nissan Juke is almost an ideal Chicago car

I know it’s not the most attractive vehicle out there. But I prefer to call the Nisan Juke quirky rather than ugly. Or if you must use a “u” word … How about unique? Not buying it? Let’s see if I can convince you. In terms of utility, the Juke is both compact and functional.... Read more »

So whadahyawannaknow? 2011 Infiniti G37x S

I swapped into the Infiniti G37x S after a week in the Chevrolet Cruze. And I made the conscious decision to completely ignore my fuel economy and simply have fun. And boy did I ever. This car has a lot of potential as a solid “grown-up” car in a city environment. Turning radius isn’t great,... Read more »

Today's Rant: Nissan Juke center console

So, in case you missed it, the CPD issued an advisory for people parking along the lakefront. Apparently the cars have been getting broken into. A lot. In broad daylight.

Today's Rave: Nissan Juke integrated control system

Because today’s rave is more visual than verbally descriptive, I decided to show you with a video. I think the integrated control system in the Nissan Juke is ingenious. Simple, functional and uncluttered all at the same time. Love it. Oh, and forgive the shaky hand. Apparently my cell phone needs a tripod. In case... Read more »

Nissan Rogue: A Chicago-worthy SUV

2011 Nissan Rogue I just had the opportunity to drive a compact SUV I actually liked: the 2011 Nissan Rogue. While the price of the test car came in around $27K, I don’t think you have to top out there. I liked the AWD that came on the test car, but I could probably do... Read more »
