Sun Valley Resort- Featured in Lexus Magazine

Did you know that the Sun Valley resort was featured in a recent Lexus Magazine article? I work for Lexus Magazine and was unfamiliar about the resort until I saw this article. The photos are amazing, and the captions are great too. Although I’m excited for spring to come back I wouldn’t mind taking a trip here. The post is titled mountain air, check it out and let me know what you think: https://secure.dri vers.lexus.com/lex usdrivers/magazine /content.do#:/pub- share/magazine/htm l/Lexus-Lifestyle/ Sun-Valley-Mountai n-High.html  (Feb 25, 2011 | post #1)

Cheese

Vermont Cheese

Hey, I work for Lexus Magazine and wanted to share an article about the cheese endeavors made on a road trip from Manhattan to Vermont on an impromptu roadtrip. Some of the cheeses mentioned were: Von Trapp Farmstead's Oma; Manchester, a goat's-milk cheese from Consider Bardwell Farm; and cave-aged cheddar from Orb Weaver Farm. How do you all feel about Vermont Cheese? Here's the article let me know your thoughts! https://secure.dri vers.lexus.com/lex usdrivers/magazine /content.do#:/pub- share/magazine/htm l/Lexus-Lifestyle/ From-Field-to-Tabl e.html  (Dec 30, 2010 | post #1)

California

Roadtripping Big Sur, Bev Hills, Laguna

What are you guys doing for a summer vacation this year? I'm doing some work with Lexus and they have some great roadtrip guides all throughout Southern California. The Laguna one looks particularly fun. Do you have any roadtrip advice for California? https://secure.dri vers.lexus.com/lex usdrivers/magazine /content.do#:/pub- share/magazine/htm l/Lexus-Lifestyle/ Laguna.html  (Jun 28, 2010 | post #1)

Kia Forte Koup offers a fun ride

If anyone is interested in some additional good reviews on the Koup, here are a couple from Car and Driver and Automobile http://www.automob ilemag.com/reviews /driven/0907_2010_ kia_forte_koup/ind ex.html http://www.carandd river.com/reviews/ car/09q3/2010_kia_ forte_koup-first_d rive_review  (Oct 8, 2009 | post #1)

Kia

2010 Kia Forte

The Forte and Forte Koup both use the Theta II engine platform shared with Hyundai. While the 2.0L has been tuned for more power, the 2.4 is the same unit that already has a history behind it (in the Sonata). Both have been rated well for a few years now and you can look this up in sources like Edmunds.  (Sep 29, 2009 | post #5)

2010 Kia Forte

There is also the Koup which was equally well reviewed, but more sporty, and definitely more aggressively styled. http://www.carandd river.com/reviews/ car/09q3/2010_kia_ forte_koup-first_d rive_review Both Forte versions and the Soul where all designed under the new chief designer Peter Schreyer (formerly of Audi), and really show a new direction for the company.  (Sep 23, 2009 | post #3)

Kia

2010 Kia Forte

Its received quite a few positive reviews. In reference to giving the competition a run for the money, most of the automotive press would agree it already is. Beats them in price, standard features, and warranty.
