Traveling in the Family Way: 2008 Lexus LX 570
Women know that sometimes being beautiful can also be complicated. It may take quite a bit of preparation - hair, nails, and makeup, not to mention uncomfortable undergarments - to appear our finest, but the results are always worth it. Such is also true for the gorgeous 2008 Lexus LX 570 sport/utility vehicle. Lexus' luxury-laden version of Toyota's recently redesigned Land Cruiser looks beautiful and touts plenty of plush and posh trappings. The results are worth it, even if it can sometimes feel a little over-elaborate in executing them.
Considering Downsizing to Save Fuel? Consumer Reports Suggests it Might be Better to Wait
We've been watching gas prices hovering just under $4 a gallon for over a month now, and at last (in my neighborhood, at least), the price of regular unleaded finally jumped to $4.39. It's enough to make a commuter cry. An increase of more than a dollar a gallon in the last year means each tank is costing $15 to $20 more, or $60 to $80 per month if you fill up weekly. It only seems natural that drivers are considering trading in their larger gas-guzzling models for something smaller with better fuel economy. Well, according to a report at Consumer Reports that might not be the best action!
Gas Saving Tips for Summer Driving
Motorists planning family road trips can't do much about the soaring gas prices, but they can pay less at the pump by making sure their vehicles get maximum fuel economy. According to the Car Care Council, fuel economy is directly related to vehicle care and driver behavior and both can have a significant impact on how much motorists pay at the pump.
