    Oh man, I’m lost for words ! I just typed in your website in a different browser (Firefox), and it was totally different ! For some reason, this specific article has been on the front page for weeks on my default browser (Chrome) ! I hope it’s just me, and other viewers are not affected.

    Thanks for replying to my comment, I appreciate it !

    1. Hey Aero – I’m going great thanks for asking! There has been updates almost every day, you probably need to clear your cache 🙂
      All the best,
      Matt

  2. Ford Escape/Kuga continues to deliver great performance! & looks like to me D segment is facing decline in sales in Canada Toyota Camry the best selling passenger car isn’t even in the top 30 in Canada
