Step22VisorPanel 1

REVIEW – Vehicle interiors are notoriously difficult places to store small items, or have things near to hand. Sure, we have consoles, “glove” boxes, and little cubby holes everywhere, but when you’re at a traffic light, and just need to, say, grab a flashlight to see what the heck is rolling around on the passenger

CARLUEX PRO Rev 0011

REVIEW – As much as I love my Toyota Tacoma, one thing that it’s lacking is a decent infotainment system. Most car manufacturers still seem to treat this vital part of a car’s configuration as an afterthought, and the older the car, the worse the experience.
