Not long ago the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) made a video to tell consumers how "misguided" there were to think that Tesla's direct sales model was that better than the franchise model.

This Is How You Find The Best Value When Buying A Pre-Owned Vehicle

For the longest time common knowledge said, "Dealers make all their money on used cars."

Should I Repair or Just Replace My Old Car?

Dear Lifehacker,
I love my car, but it's getting on in years. It's paid off, which is great, but even routine maintenance now runs me a few hundred bucks, and the mechanic is always upselling me on additional repairs that are hundreds more dollars. Is it time to just retire my ride and buy a new car, or should I stick… » 4/29/13 10:00am 4/29/13 10:00am

Ten great cars from the Edmunds '100 Worst Cars of All Time' list

What do we mean when we say Jalopnik is for "auto enthusiasts" and not a boring exercise in new car buyer lead generation? It means we'd never produce the list Edmunds Inside Line cranked out of the "100 Worst Cars of All Time." It's a list so anti-enthusiast it should just be titled "We're going to kick people who… » 12/13/11 2:30pm 12/13/11 2:30pm

How the Chevy Volt gave one reviewer his largest electric bill ever

Edmunds' Inside Line editor Karl Brauer put $4.16 of electricity in his Chevy Volt, then hit a long, climbing California road. At 25.8 miles, the battery was spent, an energy-mile per dollar equation similar to a full-size pickup. » 2/08/11 4:45pm 2/08/11 4:45pm

Shenanigans! Muscle Car Comparisons More Marketing Than Comparo

OK, we're calling bullshit on the muscle car "comparisons" being run by everyone from MotorTrend to Popular Mechanics. Sorry, but it ain't a real comparison until you've run 'em in one place at one time. » 3/24/09 9:00am 3/24/09 9:00am

Edmunds Inside Line Gets 2008 Dodge Viper ACR Salty At Bonneville

A guy named Ed that works for Edmunds Inside Line (we suspect nepotism) just got back from driving the 2008 Dodge Viper ACR to Bonneville. There, he discovered that driving really fast in a straight line, at least in a twitchy track special on the salt, is a lot harder than it looks. If we'd been there, we'd have told… » 7/29/08 11:00am 7/29/08 11:00am

As much as it may hurt to have to fill up your car every month (or week), the price of gas still isn't high enough to make trading in for a hybrid a reasonable solution for most, a reality punctuated by the Gas-Mileage Savings Calculator from Edmunds.

Edmunds Gaming Google On Chevrolet Traverse CUV?

Google's a mysterious thing in the auto webiverse. If you've got a good story it doesn't necessarily mean you'll end up on top of the search giant's search pages. Sometimes it's so important to get ahead of the rest of the pack, you'll do some very strange things. Like for instance Edmunds. Edmunds is totally the… » 8/14/07 4:30pm 8/14/07 4:30pm
