Please, if you have a Dodge Charger SE, never ask "Does the hood from a Charger SRT8 » 9/12/08 1:00pm 9/12/08 1:00pm fit on my car?"

Jalopnik Review: 2007 Dodge Nitro R/T 2WD, Part 3

Why You Should Buy This Car: Looks matter to you most of all. It's impossible to lose in the mall parking lot. You and three of your adult friends go out to eat a lot, and want to do so in comfort. Armored car side metal makes you feel safe and/or secure. You just love sitting up high. That commercial gets you every… » 2/08/07 3:19pm 2/08/07 3:19pm

Jalopnik Reviews: 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Part 3

Jalopnik Reviews, 2006 Volkswagen Golf GTI, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: Vee Dub's $25k cruise missile is the financially challenged pistonhead's Porsche. We're talking maximum bang for the buck (discounting the cramped MINI Cooper S and pricier, harder-riding Subaru WRX STi and Mitsubishi Evo). The GTI is also an ideal chariot for less adrenal enthusiasts with… » 4/08/06 5:54pm 4/08/06 5:54pm

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo SE, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: When you were a penniless pre-pubescent pistonhead, a poster of a white Lamborghini Countach poster held pride of place on your bedroom wall, right next to the soft core porn shot of Cheryl Ladd in a bikini. Even though you eventually learned to see the Italian be-winged behemoth as a… » 4/01/06 10:40am 4/01/06 10:40am
