A mere four months after our road trip in the 2022 Hyundai IONIQ5 AWD (On the Road, May), here comes a road trip in its sibling beneath the skin, the 2022 Kia EV6 Wind.

Some dude on the internet (OK, several dudes on the internet): “Maverick? Ford’s gonna use the name of a compact car on a truck?”
We recently had a new customer bring in his 2014 Subaru Impreza because the air conditioning was not blowing cold. The blower was working, however, and he was able to control the vents.
