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.

    1369929420

    An Extended Stay With The Sexy Six The new-for-2014 Mazda6 sedan is more than just a pretty face. For Mazda, it marks the company's best effort yet at competing in the highly competitive midsize sedan segment, all the while staying true to the brand's core value of offering high levels of driver ...

    Long Term: 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: April 2013
    1367434920

    Learning To Love Understand You I will admit, I haven't had the nicest things to say about our long-term 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo since its arrival in our fleet earlier this year. I can't exactly say that I've bonded with our turbocharged Hyundai, despite the fact that I've driven it quite a ...

    Long Term: 2013 Nissan Pathfinder: April 2013
    1367002680

    Not Just For Families Since our long-term 2013 Nissan Pathfinder joined the Autoblog Garage in late December of last year, the only time I've really spent with it has been during the short periods of time between my co-workers' longer loans. Until now, my experiences with our Mocha Stone tester ...

    Long Term: 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: March 2013
    1365188280

    Much of my time spent with the Veloster Turbo was under gray skies dumping inches of snow. Make sure to follow our more frequent long-term updates on the official Autoblog Facebook page. Our 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo spent the most days in March (and many in February) with me, so I'll be ...

    1364842680

    Over the past few months, we've talked a lot about how our long-term 2013 Nissan Pathfinder functions as a daily-driver, long-hauler and all-weather warrior. And so far, it's earning high praise from most of us for being a well-rounded, pleasant vehicle in these regards. But the vast majority of ...

    Long Term: 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: February 2013
    1361822220

    I just couldn't bring myself to lead this post with the image you see on the right. The winter months have not been kind to our matte gray 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo, and since you can't just run the thing through your local car wash, our oddly shaped little hatchback has spent more days dirty ...

    I took the keys to our long-term 2013 Nissan Pathfinder from Editor-in-Chief Neff (who left me with an empty gas tank, for the record) directly following the Detroit Auto Show. That means that, by the time you all read this, I'll have been in possession of the Pathfinder for more time, and driven ...

    Long Term: 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: Introduction
    1359392220

    The Hyundai Veloster is indeed an automotive oddball, and that's part of the reason why we're so drawn to it. Even in base form, the Veloster is a cleverly packaged little wonder that's bursting with personality, and with the added grunt and visual aggression of the Turbo model, there's a lot to ...

    1358960220

    We've now had our long-term 2013 Nissan Pathfinder for about a month, and some impressions are starting to solidify, while others remain contentious among the team. Most notable among those contentious items is our Pathfinder's paint color, which was chosen by vote among the Autoblog ...

    Long Term: 2013 Nissan Pathfinder: Introduction
    1357664220

    This ain't your daddy's Pathfinder. And that's exactly why we're welcoming one into the Autoblog long-term garage. With the launch of the all-new 2013 Pathfinder, Nissan has ditched the trucky, body-on-frame architecture of the previous model for something substantially more refined and ...
