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.

    Long Term: 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: June 2013
    1373655480

    There are an awful lot of good reasons to get into the Hyundai Veloster family and formula. This car looks good, is loaded out with tech and offers a great deal of practicality in a small form factor. One good reason not to consider a Veloster, at least if you're a city dweller or have primarily ...

    Despite the snow-capped photos you see here, our long-term Pathfinder has been the subject of some proper pre-summer lovin' here in metro Detroit (we're working on a new gallery). Now that the warm weather has hit Michigan, many of our staffers have eagerly grabbed the keys to our big, brown Nissan ...

    Although I went on the Portland launch of the regular-strength Veloster back in late 2011, my time in the Turbo model was previously limited to one very brief commuting experience, so I was glad to get some time in our long-term matte gray model this month. In a way, I lucked out, grabbing the key ...

    Much of my time spent with the Veloster Turbo was under gray skies dumping inches of snow.

    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 ...

    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 ...
