Fun and function in easy-to-drive Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback

By Michael St. Clair

I’m not sure it’s a metaphor for living in western Colorado, but the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback turned some heads when I was driving it down the backroads. Truthfully, though, most of those heads belonged to cattle. That said, ...


Unique Ridegline offers car comfort and truck utility

By Michael St. Clair

As a fairly unique vehicle, it’s difficult to know where to start talking about the Honda Ridgeline, and not in a ‘there’s nothing to say about it kind of way,’ but rather a ‘a lot to say, but don’t know ...

By Michael St. Clair
