2015 Hyundai Genesis RWD 3.8

  • Written by Julie Boselly, Publisher

Most of the time adjusting seats is not a big deal. I stepped into the Hyundai Genesis for the first time, and practically fell into a deep abyss. The gentleman who drops off the cars each week for me is about 6 feet 4 inches tall. I am 5 feet 2 inches on a good day. There is a lot of room in this car for tall humans. Luckily I could adjust the seat height up and forward quite a bit.

Readers ask for classic car advice

  • Written by Tom Berg, Windermere Real Estate

I was wondering what I was going to write about this month when I got a call from one of my loyal readers requesting some assistance with a classic car that was no longer needed. As a bonus it was a 1977 Corvette! I suggested she might want me to help sell her home. Alas, she’s planning on staying put but would like some more garage space, so being the nice guy that I am I offered to help her out. I already have one Corvette and too many cars so I wasn’t tempted to buy it myself but it should be fun helping her move it on to a home that can enjoy this iconic American sports car.

$24,950 MSRP; $35,500 Tested

Mom’s driving review: Honestly, I didn’t love this car on day one, but I warmed up to it by the end of the week. I asked my friends if they loved theirs and they do so I felt like I needed to give it a chance. I wasn’t fond of the way the seat slides back when you turn the vehicle off and exit. I’m short so when I get back in my arms and legs do not reach the controls/pedals. This feature can be disabled and I hear it’s a positive for taller folks.

2015 Acura MDX with Advance and Entertainment Packages

  • Written by Julie Boselly, Publisher

The Acura MDX is a high-end SUV for those who like a powerful engine and a lot of high-tech, plus the budget to cover it all. I drove with two other adults in the MDX about 750 miles from Bothell to Redmond, Oregon. We didn’t have to stop for gas on the way there with a 19.5 gallon tank. I filled up once in Redmond and made it all the way back home.
Traveling over the mountains was a breeze. We passed slow moving vehicles in passing lanes with little effort. I’m guessing putting the pedal to the metal would have been a blast, but not incredibly safe. 70 mph felt like 40 mph so it’s easy to speed.
