Dodge Can't Tell The Difference Between Its Own Car And A BMW

Chrysler Co. has a spotty history in social media. Sometimes they're brilliant and sometimes they drop the f-bomb on Detroit drivers. It seems like today they just left the intern in charge. It didn't go well. » 11/08/12 12:00pm 11/08/12 12:00pm

Volkswagen India Puts Vibrators In Newspapers, Tweets That Women Are…

A creative type at Volkswagen of India's advertising firm thought it would be a smart idea to put small vibrating devices in the Times of India to simulate "excitement." Instead, Indians thought they were like vibrators and took to Twitter to make jokes about VW and sex (India, they're just like us!). » 9/12/12 9:30am 9/12/12 9:30am

Watch Ferrari Desecrate An Ancient Chinese Monument

Ferrari celebrated the 20th anniversary of its entry into China with bravado seemingly more American than Italian — by laying rubber on top of an ancient Chinese wall using a dragon-adorned Ferrari 458 Italia. The Chinese officials (who weren't paid off) for this event were understandably displeased by the… » 5/09/12 4:00pm 5/09/12 4:00pm

Lotus Just Turned A Joke Into A PR Disaster On Facebook

In the annals of corporate history, I doubt any company has ever flipped their shit more completely than Lotus just did in this Facebook post. Meant to be a response to media reports about the automaker's financial problems, management instability, and one mostly harmless joke, it quickly became the ultimate example of … » 4/11/12 2:00pm 4/11/12 2:00pm

Politician Accidentally Turns Campaign Bus Into Girls Gone Wild Ad

Canadian politician Danielle Smith and her conservative Wildrose Party are hoping to unseat the liberal Progressive Conservatives and set the agenda for Alberta's future. It's unfortunate for her, then, that her party sounds like the name of a gentleman's club and her campaign bus has wheels in a particularly awkward… » 3/19/12 4:00pm 3/19/12 4:00pm

Read Nissan's Poorly Timed Letter To Peyton Manning

Nissan thought it would be a good idea to offer suddenly free agent QB/deity Peyton Manning a free Nissan Titan PRO-4X truck if he agreed to play for the Tennessee Titans. It seems they timed it out perfectly so it would hit the news cycle well in advance of Peyton deciding where he'd go. » 3/19/12 1:30pm 3/19/12 1:30pm

Über Fail: $1.6 million Bugatti Veyron loses drag race to Nissan GT-R

The appeal of the Bugatti Veyron is it's so fast and so well-engineered any obscenely wealthy person can hop into it and be faster than other, poorer, people. Not this guy. He appears to not understand how the vehicle's launch control works and sits there, lamely, as the guy in the GT-R blows him away. » 12/29/11 3:00pm 12/29/11 3:00pm

Watch two New Jersey National Guard trucks drown trying to drive…

The LMTV is a highly capable truck designed to move anything anywhere for the military. They're also popular rescue vehicles because of their ability to drive in high water. But, as the NJ National Guard discovered during the Hurricane Irene aftermath, and as shown in this video, there are limits. » 8/29/11 2:00pm 8/29/11 2:00pm

This is why you don't drive through standing water

While walking along South Street on lower Manhattan's east side to inspect damage from Hurricane Irene, I found huge pools of water at a few of the intersections. It wasn't water inundation from New York's East River so much as it was runoff from the overpass, flowing down into already-overburdened storm sewers. » 8/28/11 10:10am 8/28/11 10:10am

Ford destroys Chevy in epic game of truck tug o' war

Owners of Ford and Chevy trucks have spent at least 300 years fighting over who builds the best hauler. We may have a definitive answer in the form of this awesome brown Ford truck literally tearing his friend's Chevy limb-from-limb until the frame is ripped from the suspension and the whole thing flips over. » 8/16/11 4:00pm 8/16/11 4:00pm
