Why We Hate Car Shopping

As we read yesterday, a good portion of the population would rather give up sex or do all kinds of unpleasant things rather than negotiate with dealerships to buy a car. With this type of aversion to the auto purchasing process it is no wonder Tesla's direct sales model has struck a chord with consumers, and faced so… » 6/04/14 12:00pm 6/04/14 12:00pm

Edmunds Files Lawsuit Over Fake Dealership Review Comments

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 1:22pm 4/29/13 1:22pm

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

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

Gas-Mileage Savings Calculator Shows True Cost Of Trading Your Guzzler…

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. The calculator takes the value of a trade-in compared to the cost… » 7/04/08 9:30am 7/04/08 9:30am

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

Now Sweet Peet is Fighting With Karl Brauer

A couple of days ago, His Magnificent Sweetness took Karl Brauer of Edmunds to task over the site's "Most Wanted" vehicles list only including two slabs of Detroit iron. Peter's rationale? "[I]s it any wonder that the new go-to guy for auto-biz quotage for that beacon of anti-Detroit objectivity, The New York Times,… » 11/03/06 4:15pm 11/03/06 4:15pm

Show Us Your TTs: Audi Indeed Working up Performance Versions of New…

Unsatisfied with the mechanical hotness of Audi's new TT? Edmunds Inside Line is reporting two up-spec'd TT models are on the way, following a similar performance-badging continuum as Audi's more conventional lines. Adding to a recent missive in Motor Trend, Edmunds says at hand are the TT-S for 2007 and TT-RS for… » 10/05/06 9:43am 10/05/06 9:43am
