The Toyota Camry is America's best-selling car in a competitive segment that includes strong entries such as the Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, and Subaru Legacy. The Camry was most recently overhauled in 2015, and this year's model carries over largely unchanged.

Honda Accord's turns 40, somehow still looks better than the rest of us

Mine was a gray 1986 Accord Hatchback that overheated up the hill on my way home, and didn't have the brakes to stop me going down the hill on my way to high school. I loved it. Over 40 years, there have been 12.7 million stories or more like mine across the U.S.

2008-2009 Audi A4, A5, Q5 recalled to fix failing airbags

There have been plenty of airbag-recalls recently due to Takata's exploding inflators, but today's recall of the 2008 and 2009 Audi A4, A5, and Q5 is a little bit different.

1952 Buick land speed record holder up for sale

It is safe to say that this 1952 Buick Super Riviera looked nothing like it does today when it rolled off the assembly line and made its way to its first owner. Nothing General Motors had in mind for it can compare to what racer Jeff Brock did to it decades later.

Can Tesla learn from its past, and make Model 3 easy to build?

To date, Tesla Motors has never met one of its own deadlines for launching a new car. The Roadster, Model S, and Model X were all delayed for a variety of reasons. With its upcoming $35,000, 215-mile Model 3 sedan, though, Tesla can't afford to be late.

Electric cars are great for U.S. suburbs; cities, not so much
