Larry Printz Tribune News Service Published 9:48 PM EDT Mar 13, 2019 We’re told by automakers that millennials would rather cycle, scooter or take the bus than own a car. The reality is far different: they can’t afford a car — new or used. Once they can, millennials opt for something fun, something that enhances their life. It must have room for friends, family and lifestyle debris. It must be able to travel to who knows where to do who knows what. And not only must it have an audio system loud enough to inflict hearing loss, it must also be reliable, easy on gas, cheap to insure and visually compelling. And it helps if it looks vaguely like a crossover SUV that’s been left in the dryer too long. In essence, a cute ute. The Japanese-market Toyota bB, sold stateside as the 2003-06 Scion xB, established this class, joined shortly thereafter by the ugly and ungainly 2003-11 Honda Element, the distinctly odd 2009-14 Nissan Cube, the over-caffeinated 2011-17 … [Read more...] about 2020 Kia Soul is the best of the cute ‘utes’

I am currently driving a 10-year-old Mercedes-Benz E350 with 81,000 miles and am interested in moving up to possibly Tesla’s model S. I love the E350 and have maintained it faithfully, and think it would be a good, safe car for a teen girl. Yes, I know I spoil her terribly, but from a practical point of view, what’s wrong with this idea? My wife has made it very clear that under no circumstances will our daughter be getting a Mercedes. I think she is relating back to her own days in high school where she got a beater VW.

Some Gazette readers were eager to visit Winter Park after seeing the top 10 list while others found its No. 1 standing confusing. Comments on The Gazette Facebook about the selection ran the gamut:"You better believe it.""Yes! We need to come!" Colorado has best ski resort in North America, according to USA Today list The Gazette "Hard to imagine it competes with any big mountain skiing.""I'm surprised.""Nope. They paid for those results."
