2012 Canadian International Auto Show

It’s that time of year again… time for the Canadian International Auto Show [CIAS]. Whenever it arrives we know it’s only a matter of time before winter ends and spring begins! This years’ 10-day event takes place from February 17th to the 26th, 2012.  As usual, there are a number of concept vehicles, as well as North American and Canadian Premieres to entice everyone to drool alongside other gear-heads. We’ll be there for the media day on the 16th, so stay tuned for pictures (we might even take some video this year) of the launch events.

2010 Kia Soul 4u SX – Road Test

Our summer quest for a new vehicle continues this week with the Kia Soul 4u SX. Although we drove the Soul a short while ago, we decided to re-visit it as a potential purchase after we saw the SX version at the auto show back in February of this year. I asked Kia if they would be kind enough to let me have it for an extended period of time – 3 weeks to see just how much we would like it. They graciously agreed, but one of my fellow journalists did what we all fear when driving company cars.. he or she got in an accident rendering the vehicle unavailable for yours truly.  Fortunately, that gave me the opportunity to drive the Sorento for two weeks and we thoroughly enjoyed that, but this left us with just one week to evaluate the Soul.
