A Week of Commutes 2/18/2012
By Kevin Gordon
This week we learned that going “off the cuff” is tougher than you might imagine. Kevin flubbed dates, predictions, and managed to chew on words that his three year old can pronounce with perfect annunciation. The good news is that the format continues to improve. Every day we learn a little more about camera angles and editing techniques. Also, this week we replaced Friday’s Afternoon Commute with a video review of the 2012 Hyundai Accent. After the break are all of the videos for the week.
On Monday we talked about a cool feature on a Ford MPV, fun movie posters, and the Chicago Auto Show. (This video was edited on Windows)
Tuesday we talked about the cheapest cars to insure, a 2.3 liter turbo that might end up in a 2014 Ford Mustang, problems for the electronic car manufactures, the potential sale of Ducati, no manual for the 2013 Porsche GT3, and why the new Acura ILX is an epic fail.
Wednesday I admited that I was wrong about Tesla, we talk about the (future) Geneva Auto Show and the 2013 Ferrari California, we review why gas is so expensive right now, and I review the reviewers talking about Hyundai.
On Thursday I should have mentioned that the Geneva Auto Show is not until next month. Instead we talked about the BMW 328, is it underrated? Ford’s cleaver advertising campaign, more on Tesla, buy a Model S, be part of Beta testing, Porsche’s new little SUV, and a review of the JD power results. I also stoop to a new low and show a picture of Kate Upton not doing the dougie.
On Friday we did not film an Afternoon Commute. In its place is a video review of the 2012 Hyundai Accent. You can always read our written review here.
