Honda CR-V Hybrid Review

Have we reached ‘peak’ CR-V, or was that back with the second gen?

We owned a second-generation Honda CR-V for over decade and there must be a very good reason we kept it that long. Although there isn’t any single cause for keeping it that I can recall, potentially it was more a case of… well there was no reason to replace it.

Fast & Furious 9 Review [Spoiler Alert]

‘Cars in Space’ or ‘Dumb & Dumber on Wheels’ – pick your title, but whatever you do, DON’T miss it!

So last weekend I saw the latest instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise – Fast and Furious 9-  Cars in Space. I don’t think it’s really called that, in fact I think it’s The Fast Saga, but it should be called Cars in Space. So have I just let slip a spoiler? Probably not if you’ve seen the trailer or if you’ve actually seen the movie of course.

But in any case – I’ll give you a big warning right now, this is one of those rare occasions I will tell you NOT to read on or watch the embedded video, if you haven’t seen the movie or even the trailer (which mostly tells you everything anyway), because there are going to be huge spoilers ahead. On the other hand if you have seen it, or just don’t care, then here’s what I thought of the newest car movie out, which you can actually see now that – Thank God – the cinemas are open again.

Electric Cars are Not the Answer

but a Unique Racing Toyota Corolla could be!

Electric cars are not the answer to our future transpor requirements according to the world’s biggest car maker. They have an alternative, in the form of a racing Toyota Corolla with a conventional engine that’s powered by hydrogen. Unlike most manufacturers, Toyota are not jumping on the EV bandwagon. And there’s clear reasoning for it. I look at the evidence and the pros and cons of a future not wholly dependent on electric cars.
