2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Limited: Great Adventures

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Subaru is a special automotive brand for special individuals who enjoy the naturalistic side of life. Adventure is in the blood of their veins and the oil of their rides. So it’s no wonder that each influences the other to maintain consistent activity levels, load the family calendar with excitement, and habitually hit trails, lakes, and campgrounds on weekends. So of course when our Venetian Red Pearl 2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Limited rolled into the driveway the only thing on the top of my mind was how many times I would mountain bike that week and what new parks I would visit. It’s instinctual when you have the keys to a Subie! [Read more…]

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

It was a most auspicious time at the Skywalker Ranch in the San Francisco Bay Area on a beautiful Friday afternoon as I had the pleasure of experiencing the well-appointed 2018 Lexus LS 500 sedan. With a progressive spindle grille (5,000 different surfaces), beautiful and athletic silhouette, 20″ Forged Executive Package Rims, Navigation with High Resolution 12.3″ screen, and an all-new 416-horsepower V6 Dual VVT-i engine, expect the 5th generation LS to elevate the competition in the full-size luxury sedan market. The highly favored LS will certainly become a quintessential vehicle of choice for businessmen and women alike, luminaries, pro athletes, and modest individuals who simply enjoy the finer things in life.

Thule T2 Pro XT Platform Bike Rack: Hitch Up and Roll Out

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Biking, especially MTBing, is a special activity and fitness regimen of the Fit Fathers staff so it is no wonder that we spent almost every weekend this summer on single tracks. Now that an East Coast autumn is upon us there is probably no place more special than in the woods ripping trails while absorbing pure air and observing Mother Nature’s picturesque panoramas at high speeds. Refreshing, tranquilizing, and energizing is the equation I am always looking for when it’s time to hitch up and roll out. But of course you need a trusted rack to transport your precious cargo from A to B which in our case came in the form of the Thule T2 Pro XT premium, platform hitch bike rack. [Read more…]

2018 Audi SQ5 3.0T quattro tiptronic: Sporty Family Fun

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

I must say, this past week was one of Automotive Rhythms’ more thrilling automotive test drive experiences since we were piloting the 2018 Audi SQ5 3.0T quattro tiptronic compact-luxury SUV. Sporty, dynamic, and laden with advanced technology, the SQ5 is suitably fit for small families, adventurous singles, or young couples looking for enticement during each and every ride. Although, it felt more like a taller wagon in comparison to its bigger Q7 cousin, which means parking was never a qualm in crowded lots or on busy city streets. [Read more…]

Ivan Lovegren on Fit Fatherhood

Fatherhood means being there, being available, and letting your children know they can take chances because someone is in their corner.  I don’t always want to carry my sons. I want them to know I will be standing right next to them even when they slow down to a crawl. Giving the kids the support to get started and being present when they turn to you, even if they have to forge the way themselves, is what I believe defines a father. I hope someday my kids will return the parenting skills to their siblings.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk: Born to Run

Wow, this Super Jeep was a joy testing at Club Motorsports in Tamworth, New Hampshire earlier this week! Detonating 707-horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the most authoritative and swiftest SUV roaming the streets. Only when you depart the vehicle and look back do you realize you were just warping around the raceway in a sport utility with the strength of J.J. Watt and finesses of Odell Beckham Jr!
