Patrick Olsen

Editor-in-Chief

<p>A native of Los Angeles, I have worked as a newspaperman for most of the past two decades in both the Chicago and L.A. areas. As Cars.com's EIC, I work with this great team to bring you all the news, research and advice you'll need to buy your next car. I'm not a gearhead, but more of a fan of how cars are becoming smarter, more comfortable and more fun.</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> 1985 Toyota pickup with absolutely no options, including no rear bumper</p>

Joe Wiesenfelder

Executive Editor

<p>After six years in the magazine business, I made the jump to web publishing in 1995 to apply my experience with photography, video and the written word. I joined the Cars.com launch team in 1997 and, well, time flies.</p><p>I'd say my emphasis is cutting through marketing claims and technobabble to determine what really matters to car buyers. Nothing tees me off more than supposed improvements that degrade the driving experience. I'm the harshest critic of transmission performance that you're ever likely to meet, and I remain baffled by the SUV craze, but I judge all vehicles on their own merit. If I have a shortcoming, it's a blindness to the image aspect of vehicles. SUVs and sports cars don't make you cool, and minivans don't make you lame. Many people, and the entire state of California, clearly disagree.</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> My first car was a 1971 Oldsmobile Delta 88 whose 455-cubic-inch engine awoke the car nut in me - and made me a big-block snob for eternity. I survived more than 10 years owning a '79 Fiat Spider I bought from Tom ("Click") Magliozzi from NPR's Car Talk, which I recently replaced with the "tuna boat," a 1984 Mercedes 300D turbo diesel. I keep a 2002 Mazda Miata SE as a reliable backup.</p>

David Thomas

Managing Editor

<p>I oversee Cars.com's news coverage from the auto shows we attend to vital car-buying pieces like Car Seat Checks and What's Changed. I have a thing for wagons and own a 2010 Subaru Outback and a 2005 Volkswagen Passat Wagon. Secretly, though, I lust for a BMW M3, but lately I've fallen for the Acura MDX. That would certainly be better suited for shuttling my two young kids, their friends and their stuff around the suburbs.</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> 1989 Ford Probe</p>

Bill Jackson

Assistant Managing Editor, Research and Production

<p>I write reviews and oversee the production of most of Cars.com's editorial content. I've moved all over the place, both as a kid and as a former newspaperman.

<p>I'm a married urban mom with two busy boys. On the weekends, I can be found navigating Chicago's streets in my 2013 Subaru Outback while shuttling my kids to their activities. As a certified car-seat technician, I install child-safety seats into test cars for Cars.com's Car Seat Checks. When I'm not working with car seats, I spend my weekdays writing and editing stories for Cars.com.</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> Ford Escort hatchback</p>

Eric Rossi

Assistant Managing Editor, Multimedia

<p>I manage the Cars.com's multimedia team. I have my hands in all forms of digital media in the office, but I'm a car junkie at heart. I've been to every Chicago Auto Show since I was 3, and I can only keep a car for about two years before the need for something different gets the best of me. I've been fortunate to combine my passion for video production and my love of cars here at Cars.com. I began my career at Cars.com after graduating from Bradley University, but during college I ran my own car detailing business called 'A Touch of Hollywood.'</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> 1990 Toyota SR5 pickup truck named Mabel</p>

Senior Editor

<p>I'm a veteran automotive journalist with 25 years of experience. I've worked at Four Wheeler magazine, including two years as editor. In 2000, I joined Motor Trend as its expert on all things pickup, SUV and four-wheel drive. In addition, I became editor at Truck Trend. Before joining PickupTrucks.com, I was a freelance automotive expert, loaning out my writing and enthusiast-market expertise to outlets such as Motor Trend, Popular Mechanics, PickupTrucks.com, Amazon.com and several others. I was a Motor Press Guild board member for several years, and I'm also a longtime soccer coach, most recently finishing my ninth season as the local junior high head coach. I live in Southern California with my wife and enjoy camping, hiking, skiing, big trucks and towing, and back-country 4x4 driving.</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> 1966 Volkswagen Beetle</p>

Joe Bruzek

Road Test Editor

<p>I came to Cars.com in 2006 straight from college where I studied automotive technology and technical writing. My role of Road Test Editor is focused on creating content from the cars we test through automaker test fleets as well as Cars.com's fleet of purchased long-term test cars. I find few things as enjoyable as driving, and when I'm not behind the wheel of a test car I try to sneak as much time as possible in my 1998 Pontiac Trans Am. It's neither fast nor in one piece at the moment, but it's a welcome break from driving the nice-riding, powerful, safe, fuel-efficient, quiet new performance cars we test. That reminds me, anyone want to buy a 1998 Pontiac Trans Am?</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> 1990 Chevrolet Caprice, ex-police car. The police department did such a bad job decommissioning the car that it had star-shaped adhesive on the doors from where they tore off the star, plus still had the number and stripes on the sides. It had straight pipes, a flipped air intake lid and sounded a lot faster than it was.</p>

Reviewer

<p>After briefly writing for Racingone.com, I joined Cars.com in 2002. I've held a variety of positions since then and am currently one of the site's resident car reviewers. Though I often give high marks to cars with superb handling qualities, I have a soft spot for old Detroit land yachts. I also tend to prefer manual transmissions, though I'm thankful today's stick shifts are more refined than the one in the 1951 Willys Station Wagon that I learned on.</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> 1975 Chevrolet Impala coupe</p>

Kelsey Mays

Senior Consumer Affairs Editor

<p>I've been part of Cars.com's editorial team since 2006, but I'm a Midwest transplant. I grew up in Seattle and attended Pepperdine University near Los Angeles, where I developed an automotive section for the school's weekly newspaper and worked briefly at Edmunds.com. At Cars.com I investigate and cover wide-ranging issues across the auto industry. I also review cars, both on camera and in (virtual) print, and serve on the North American Car and Truck of the Year jury. I'm a big consumer advocate, especially when it comes to safety, quality and value. And, traffic be damned, I still love a good stick-shift sedan.</p><p>Outside of work, my wife and I enjoy cooking, bike rides, piano and pro football.

Now, I'm the Detroit Bureau Chief for Cars.com and a contributor to PickupTrucks.com. Personally, I'm a huge car guy, always have been.

Jen Burklow

Copy Editor

<p>Born in Chicago, I've lived in the north and west suburbs for most of my life. I worked for 20 years at the Chicago Sun-Times in a variety of editing positions before leaving to freelance and spend more time with my four smart and talented daughters/stepdaughters. During my time as a freelancer I served as the assistant editor for the Sun-Times' ToDrive section. That combined with being raised by a car-crazy father made joining Cars.com as a copy editor a perfect fit. With four kids and several dogs to haul around, vans have been my family's preferred mode of transportation for decades and may continue to be; we now have seven grandkids and counting. We are still driving our second GMC Safari as well as a 2014 Kia Sportage. Free time finds me playing/training/walking/hiking with our dogs, biking/boating/fishing with family and reading whenever I can.</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> 1966 Oldsmobile Delta 88</p>

Before I came over to Cars.com in early 2011, I covered a number of different beats in my journalism career.</p></p>My first car had a wonderful safety feature: You could never lock your keys inside the car it since you needed the key to lock up the car. When I got the car, I had to learn how to drive a stick. The lessons with my father didn't go too well, but eventually I learned that life skill. Yet now I only want to drive automatics.</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> 1980 Pontiac Sunbird, very used</p>

Multimedia Editor

<p>As the primary videographer for Cars.com, shooting cars is second nature to me. In my role, I've been able to combine my two passions - media and cars. I've worked as an ASE-certified technician for both BMW and Mercedes-Benz while living on the East Coast. I graduated with a degree in electronic media and film from Towson University and began working as an assistant writer and production assistant for 'MotorWeek.' Whether it be the Rolls-Royce Phantom or Toyota Sienna, nothing brings me more satisfaction than infusing creativity into my shots to highlight the car or truck I'm shooting. If the viewer enjoys what he sees, I'm happy and know it was a job well done.</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> Two Ford Mustangs that I modified during my high school years.</p>

<p>A Twin Cities native and music buff, I wore out the CD player in the first car I drove as a teenager, a '95 Honda Civic with major dents that must have been caused by someone else in my family. I took an interest in photography to the University of Missouri and graduated with degrees in photojournalism and international studies. My Minnesota accent faded into y'alls, but the car/music thing stayed intact even as I downgraded to a '93 Mercury Topaz nicknamed Freddie Mercury. After a photojournalism internship with the newspaper in Quincy, Ill., I moved to Chicago and worked as a freelance videographer at the Chicago Sun-Times and related publications. I joined the Cars.com multimedia team in 2015. My next car is to be determined.</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> 1995 Honda Civic</p>

I've been a car nut since I was a little kid and used to entertain myself (and annoy my parents) on long drives by identifying the make and model of oncoming cars at great distances. I grew up in the Philadelphia burbs, and I'm an avid support of all Philadelphia teams as well as Liverpool FC (because I needed more heartbreak in my life).</p><p><strong>First car:</strong> 1997 Toyota 4Runner, which I still have today.
