Long-Term Garage

Any car can make a good first impression, but the real test is how you feel about your wheels after 365 days of ownership. The Autoblog Long-Term Garage is where we test vehicles over the course of an entire year, getting to know their features and faults intimately as we drive them just like our own vehicles. Check out the list on the right to see what's currently in the Autoblog Long-Term Garage, as well as the vehicles that have come and gone. Become a fan of Autoblog's official Facebook page to follow along with our daily long-term updates, and check back here for monthly updates on each vehicle.

    When we look back at some of the more shocking product launches of recent years, the Jeep Cherokee is certainly high up on the list. And we aren't just talking about its off-the-wall, polarizing design.

    Long Term: 2013 Nissan Pathfinder: Wrap-Up [w/video]
    1399996620

    Despite our tendency as enthusiasts to clamor for things like wagons and hot hatchbacks, it's hard to argue with the buying public's increasing demand for functional crossovers. In fact, the great SUV craze of the late-1990s has all but faded in favor of the easier-driving, better-packaged, ...
