​Hyundai Is Making The Infotainment System We've Been Asking For

Automakers are starting to get it. We don't want to deal with clunky interfaces and shoddy graphics. If we want to listen to our music and get directions, we want a dumb screen to connect to our smart phone. That's what Hyundai will be offering next year, and it'll be less expensive to boot.

Every Driving School In America

My experience at Mini's Miles Ahead Performance Motoring School at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was one of the highlights of my year.

Look at What This Father is Doing With This GoKart

This is a five horsepower, four-stroke, chain-driven, single speed, mad, mad, speed machine. It'll do 25mph, in fact, with my shivering ass a 150lb fully grown man-boy gripping and tugging at the pseudo-pro pleather wheel on a slighly less than level grade. This thing only has one purpose, and therefor it is a… » 12/22/14 4:33pm Today 4:33pm
