Driven: 2012 Year In Review(s)

By Seyth Miersma

January 10, 2012

A new calendar is on the wall, the latest Detroit auto show is already wrapping up—seems like it’s probably about time for us to start an all-new Review Round-Up for 2012.
Please do make sure to bookmark this page, as we’ll use it to post links to every piece of review content we create in the 2012 calendar year. Looking to buy a new car this year? Want to find out if your neighbor’s new whip is more involving than yours? Are you just a junkie for fresh-from-the-driver’s-seat new car reviews? Any and all are good reasons to check back on this meta post, early and often.
While you’re waiting for the new reports to stock up, don’t feel bashful about browsing all of our review content from 2011, or 2010 either. And, of course, if there’s a particular model that you’d like us to test drive, or a comparison test you’d like to see, please tell us about it in the comments section below. Here’s to another great year of driving!
(By the way; don’t miss out on our other great meta-posts either. All of the Winding Road Video content can be found here, or your can get your Flip This Car fix here. A complete list of all Secondhand Gems articles is on the way, too.)
