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: March 2013

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

    Long Term: 2013 Nissan Pathfinder: March 2013

    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

    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 ...

    Long Term: 2013 Nissan Pathfinder: February 2013

    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

    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 ...

    Long Term: 2013 Nissan Pathfinder: January 2013

    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 team.

    Long Term: 2011 Mini Countryman: June 2012

    When you've been test-driving nearly every new vehicle on the market for as long as I have, you get to the point where you mostly know what to expect. Not that I or most other veteran car reviewers make up our minds about new products before we drive them, but certainly we formulate theories to go ...
