EXCLUSIVE Surf legend Bruce Irons tells TMZ Sports he's confident he will beat the DUI Drug allegations against him -- claiming the field sobriety showed he was "fine." As we previously reported, the 39-year-old surfer was arrested in Newport Beach last week when cops claim they found him passed out behind the wheel of a car with the engine running. He was booked for driving under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. Now, Irons tells us ... he's confident he'll be cleared -- and called the whole thing a "hiccup in the road." "I did the sobriety test and I was fine," Irons told us at LAX on his way back to Hawaii.

Bruce also had a message for his fans -- "Innocent until proven guilty." The surfer has previously acknowledged issues with substance abuse -- but … [Read more...] about Bruce Irons Denies DUI Drug Allegations, ‘I Passed the Sobriety Test’
As you might imagine, nobody at Buick is keen for me to review their cars lately. It’s a shame, because there’s not necessarily a correlation between the quality of the cars that bear the “Buick” logo and the failure of the Buick business model in the United States (to recap, move Encore and Enclave to GMC, kill the rest of the brand with fire). But no matter — we have access to our own Buick, thanks to the lovely Luisa and the Encore Preferred she recently leased. So I decided to put a few hundred miles behind the wheel of the Opel Mokka Encore and give you guys the lowdown. Spoiler alert: it’s not terrible. In fact, for the price, it’s downright good. Click the jump for more. Luisa’s requirements for her first car were pretty simple: she wanted to sit up higher for (perceived) safety, she wanted to be able to get good gas mileage, and she needed to be able to transport small children in the back seat, as she works in the pre-K … [Read more...] about 2018 Buick Encore Preferred Review – Bark Reviews What He Wants

It’s probably a little too on the nose for any automaker to launch a car in the city, state, or region it’s named after, but that didn’t stop Hyundai from bringing media to Hawaii to drive the newest entry into the subcompact crossover class. Hyundai did so not just because of the “synergy” (ugh) between place and name, but because the company wanted to show us scribes how sporty and fun and well-suited to outdoorsy folk the Kona is. Never mind that most compact SUV buyers aren’t hauling long boards – they’re hauling little humans. Every automaker does this — projecting their crossovers as the key to adventure. And I have no doubt that equipped with the correct accessories, the Kona can haul your bikes to the trailhead just fine. But most of these are going to be found in traffic on city streets, just like most of the crossovers buyers will cross-shop against the Kona. The bigger question, then, is where does the Kona fit in a … [Read more...] about 2018 Hyundai Kona First Drive – Content Comes at a Price
