For God’s Sake, Take Off Your Dealer License Plate Frame

I'll tell you when I first realized that we have a serious problem. It was just a few days ago, when I came up behind a car in traffic with one of those enormous plastic license plate frames. Printed on top was the name of the dealer – something like "ANDERSON MOTORS." And on the bottom, in the same enormous font,… » 9/16/14 4:06pm Tuesday 4:06pm

The Poor Renault Twingo's Never Going To Get A Fair Shake

From what I've seen so far, I really like the new Renault Twingo. It's a cheap little city car with a lot of traits I really love — especially the rear engine/rear wheel drive part. But it seems that because of those unique (for its segment, especially) reasons, it's going to have a hard time getting judged fairly. » 9/12/14 10:30pm 9/12/14 10:30pm

Let's Replace The Stupid Term "Chick Car" With Something Better

I couldn't agree more with what Travis said earlier today about how it's time to stop calling certain cars "chick cars." It's never positive, and all it does is alienate a huge number of people who may actually love cars. Let's figure out what we actually mean when we say it, and find something better. » 9/05/14 5:00pm 9/05/14 5:00pm

2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid:The Oppo Review

A few weeks ago, I had an issue with my driver's side door on my FR-S. Somehow, it slid down the hinges and started rubbing on the body panel. Being that it's still under warranty, I took it into the dealer who fixed it promptly and I was on my way. Fast forward to a few days ago, the problem returned, and I returned… » 8/15/14 11:12am 8/15/14 11:12am

NPR's All Things Considered Grows Asshole, Talks About Cars Out Of It

Let me be up front and say that I actually like listening to All Things Considered. What I'm less crazy about listening to is a lot of inane misinformation about cars, just to tenuously make some half-assed point about fatherhood and manliness and a bunch of other crap that actually made me long for a pledge drive. » 8/06/14 12:00pm 8/06/14 12:00pm

This Busty Naked Woman Has Been Following Me Around The Internet

Bertha has been following me around from website to website, flanked by used Mercedes sedans, for a few days. It's sort of embarrassing to have a woman with giant breasts on your laptop when you're in public, but because of a quirk in my job and how Cars.com displays ads, I can't seem to escape her. » 7/11/14 12:00pm 7/11/14 12:00pm

Here Are The Best Comments And Messages I've Gotten So Far

As some of you are no doubt aware, I am currently on vacation. This means I've interrupted my usual schedule of a) waking up late, and b) sitting around the house no pants on, just so I could spend thousands of dollars to fly half-way around the world, where I am a) waking up late, and b) sitting around the house with… » 7/08/14 2:45pm 7/08/14 2:45pm
