Today's news runs the gamut from weird to poignant, with a good mixture of the range between. Kicking the day off on an odd note, we have a BMW X5 driver that's decided to go monster trucking' before hitting the gym, then turns tail and runs from the scene. Moving back towards sanity, Bengt Halvorson has his drive impressions of the 2010 Subaru Outback ready for your consumption, fresh from a stint behind the wheel.

Saturn delivers a dose of genuine character in an industry that's sometimes a bit faceless and cold, sending a "Dear John" letter out to its loyal customer base--and despite the chance for a major disaster, pulls it off with the same earnest charm that's bred such die-hard fans over the years.

At GreenCarReports, John Voelcker takes a look at how Honda is raising its game to go greener quicker, while a TCC Tip  feature from TheCarConnection points you toward getting the most out of a BMW 7-series, especially if you've got a family in tow, and the Volkswagen Polo gets a quick once-over as well.

Our network sites are chock-full of good stuff today, too, with AllCarsElectric in particular hitting us with a barrage of EV and hybrid news. MustangBlog takes a look at Ford's SEMA Mustangs, and AllSmallCars asks what happens when you forcefully combine an SUV, a hybrid and an electric sportscar--at speed.
