Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Dec 8th, 2006 12:55am

Reprinted from DontBeFueled.org In recent years, my family’s commitment to caring for the environment in everyday life has seemed increasingly at odds with its personal transportation needs.

I have a feeling this one doesn’t just sit around and purr. The new Tiguan concept is super fun to look at and extra nice inside. The orange accents in the tire that match the paint scheme is a riot and we ...

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Dec 6th, 2006 8:03pm

We all like saving a little cash, and the new 2007 Ford Edge will help you do just that. This not-so-little-it-is-tiny-but-not-so-big-it-is-a-monster crossover vehicle has a lot to offer and might not be quite what you would expect from a Ford. It has great style. Just look at that grill and the beautiful lines. It looks like an SUV instead of a minivan-SUV mush, like many crossovers do. It caught our eye while we ...
