Today I went to the junk yard for the first time since before moving to Québec. A 1995 BMW 740iL had my name written all over it.

Proceeds from the PRN T-Shirts will go entirely to #ProjectE38 to get this car back on the road! We interrupt our usual stream of content for some 4K goodness at the junk yard. Today's visit takes place at Kenny U-Pull in Sherbrooke,

Québec where a 1995 BMW 740iL has been sitting for a few months. I check it out to see if there are any viable parts for #ProjectE38 on it including a serviceable gas tank. The sand beige interior is also a match for my 7 Series, so maybe...

Depreciation is king when it comes to luxury vehicles, including big brown diesels. Our Spotlight is on this 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL 350 BlueTec 4matic SUV.

This vehicle was provided to us by Excellence Auto Acton here in Acton Vale, Québec. Big thanks to them for letting us spend the morning with this full-size luxury SUV.

The GLC-Class is the most popular vehicle sold by Mercedes-Benz in Canada, which means the performance version is a solid hit too. Our Spotlight is on the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4matic SUV.

One of the best decisions Daimler has made recently was to expand their AMG offerings with new entry-level performance models that rival the BMW M Performance line. Because of this decision buyers now have more choice when looking at performance vehicles from Mercedes, and allows for a more daily-driven experience without having to go up to one of the 63-Series AMGs.

The GLC-Class is the compact luxury SUV...

How long can you sell the same car before people realize it's not new anymore? That's the story of the Chrysler 300, a car that has remained on the same platform since 2011, and essentially unchanged since 2015.

This week's episode of TestDrive Spotlight is on the 2020 Chrysler 300 Limited AWD. Yes, that's correct, this is a 2020 model year for a car that has only seen paint and rim choice changes since 2018, and the last major facelift in 2015. The Chrysler 300 really dates back to 2004 when the first generation of Chrysler LX vehicles launched, and has remained on their fleet since. We go ove...

Back to back with the new-for-2020 Lincoln models, we're looking at the latest compact crossover luxury vehicle from the American brand: the 2020 Lincoln Corsair Reserve AWD.

This episode of TestDrive Spotlight is a full tour and review of the new 2020 Lincoln Corsair Reserve AWD. With two trims currently available in the Canadian market, this Reserve AWD starts at $50,500.00 CAD and is positioned as an entry-level Lincoln in the brand's portfolio. The Corsair is based on the new Ford Escape platform, but inside and out its a completely different vehicle. Following Lincoln's current design lang...

Friendship over with Intrepid, Focus Wagon is my new best friend. Things escalated quickly, so now we're behind the wheel of yet another super cheap car.

After Monday's official announcement of the death of my 1997 Chrysler Intrepid 3.5L I wanted to give a quick tour of the replacement beater, this 2006 Ford Focus SE ZXW. The Focus enjoyed it's time in the North American spotlight before Ford axed it after the 2019 model year, but it sold incredibly well here in Canada, especially Québec where the local KennyUPull has over 40 to choose from.

My green Focus wagon is the second trim in the Focus l...

Romances sometimes die fast. That's what's happened with my new-to-me 1997 Chrysler Intrepid 3.5L as I look under the body.

This week on TestDrive we're throwing in a wrench to our plans for the 1997 Chrysler Intrepid I bought several weeks ago. After taking it to a number of shops I had high hopes of fixing the brake issue, but after getting the chance to thoroughly look under the car we've found some very troubling issues. We go over the damage, neglect, and rot that has eaten away at this once flagship sedan with some close up 4K footage of this wreck of a car.

We also discuss what's next for...
