Welcome to the Roadfly Long-Term Road Tests

Certain cars, trucks and SUVs are just too important, interesting, or plain good to cover comprehensively in our standard one-week test format. That’s why Roadfly is establishing a long-term fleet–with the gracious cooperation of the manufacturers. We’ll be subjecting these vehicles to a full year of real-life assessment, evaluating how they perform when the novelty wears off.

We’ll be living with these long-term testers as if they were our own, and bringing you updates on their performance, functionality, and reliability every couple of weeks.

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
