Forbes comes up with top-ten most expensive luxury cars to repair

Buying a luxury car or SUV is the dream of many readers, and while a BMW or Mercedes will buy you some instant street-cred, they'll also cost you an arm and a leg if it ever needs fixing. A repair that may be no big deal for a Chevy Cobalt can cost much more in a luxury vehicle due to high-tech gadgets and more expensive materials. Forbes put together lists of the ten most expensive to repai

Forbes names "Most Affordable Luxury Cars"

One of our favorite non-auto-publications-laughably-doing-car-stories, Forbes has just issued its list of the most affordable luxury cars available today. Sound like an oxymoron? Well, it is, sort of, but their point is a logical one. Even the entry-level models from most luxury players are getting the toys from their bigger siblings.

Forbes Top Four best vehicles for college students

Talk about tough standards. When Forbes compiled vehicles for its annual "Best Cars for College Students" list, they found only four vehicles qualified to meet its criteria of being affordable, safe, and reliable. Interestingly, the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry, which they deemed the "standard" by which similar vehicles are measured, failed to make the list. According to Forbes, both did poorly on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests, with the Accord receiving the lowest

Hyundai and Kia headed for a fall?

Hyundai and Kia Motors are in the fast lane among the major automakers. In the U.S. alone, their combined sales were four times greater than their sales a mere seven years ago. The new Hyundai Sonata is garnering rave reviews among customers and the press. What's more, with Ford and GM pulling away from the minivan segment, the new Kia Sedona (pictured) is looking to secure another piece of the automotive pie.
