Giametta's Driveway: 2010 and 2011 Cars

Last Updated: Feb 12, 2011

Get behind the wheel of a new car each week. From Hummer to Hyundai, Corvette to Corolla, the good points and bad are on display in Giametta’s Driveway.

Chuck Giametta’s evaluations are informed by two decades of automotive testing and reporting for newspapers, books, magazines, and the Internet. The former Executive Auto Editor of Consumer Guide, Chuck has written about cars for HowStuffWorks.com, Collectible Automobile magazine, and Publications International Ltd.’s automotive book series.

The cars, pickups, minivans, crossovers, and SUVs passing through Giametta’s Driveway are on loan from the automakers’ press pools, and every one gets a plain-talk evaluation that zeros in on what you want to know.

How much does it cost and is it worth it? What’s to like, and where does the car fall short? What does its manufacturer claim, and does a professional automotive journalist agree?

For car reviews that are smart, concise, and a little irreverent, check out the driveway of a friendly neighbor who’s happy to share the ride.
