When he first saw the blue Dodge sedan screech around a corner at the Venice boardwalk, Mustafa Balci assumed that a driver had gotten confused and would quickly turn around. But the car didn't turn around. It sped ahead Saturday evening, striking a metal trash can, destroying a table and then continuing "like a train" through the tent where Balci sells pendants, hitting his knees and flipping his wife through the air. Police identified the driver of the Dodge as Nathan Campbell, 38, a transient who was arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the hit-and-run crash that left one dead and 11 injured.

Once a muscle-car icon and a symbol of U.S. automotive dominance, the Chevrolet Impala has more recently seen its image suffer. Bloated and generic, the critics said. More suited for the rental car fleets that account for most of its sales. Consumer Reports three years ago panned its sloppy handling and second-rate fit and finish. So it marked a stunning turnaround Thursday when the Impala secured the influential magazine's top overall rating among sedans -- a distinction held by Japanese and European models for at least two decades.

If BMW is considered the ultimate driving machine, Lexus is viewed more as the ultimate easy chair. Toyota's luxury brand has succeeded in building a reputation for supreme comfort and quality but struggled to add aggressive styling and driving passion to the mix. The new IS 250 and 350 sport sedans are the latest effort to shed that bland image. And it involves more than some shiny paint and slick marketing; this new IS is a true player in the cutthroat sport sedan segment.

That was quick. Mercedes-Benz has yet to put its all-new 2014 S-Class on sale, but the automaker has already handed the car over to its AMG performance division to breathe more life into the full-size sedan. On Wednesday, Mercedes unveiled the S63 AMG 4MATIC. The car is the more meaty version of the S550 that will go on sale in September. The AMG version will officially debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and roll into U.S. dealerships in November. PHOTOS: 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG breaks cover Though the 2014 model uses essentially the same engine and transmission as its predecessor, the biggest change to the S63 is the inclusion of a standard all-wheel-drive system for the first time.

Kelley Blue Book is out with its list of the best sedans under $25,000. It has some of our favorites, such as the Honda Accord and Mazda6 and some choices that we might not have included, including the Volkswagen Jetta and Toyota Camry. While all of these vehicles have a model that sells for less than $25,000, and some well under that, others might cost more once you include options and other amenities such as leather seats. And don't forget to add in tax and license fees, which run about 10% of the purchase price. Still, there's no doubt that there are many good family sedans on the market right now as increased competition from U.S.

Dodge is recalling nearly 13,000 of its compact Dart sedan to correct a problem with stalling in cold weather. The recall affects only Dart sedans that have the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and the six-speed dual-clutch transmission, according to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration. The agency says the car's engine can stall at temperatures below 20 degrees, leading to the possibility of a crash. No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of this defect, said company spokesman Eric Mayne.
