The angry, blocky Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen has been around in its current shape since the 1970s. Over the years its powertrains have changed, its interior’s been wrapped in different cloths, but it looks like 2018 will be the first major update the world’s roughest luxury “car” has had in a long, long time.
Believe it or not, in the United States, Volkswagen’s best-selling model is still the Jetta. Yes, even as sedan sales implode, and even with the Golf being as good as it is, and even with two new SUVs newly embiggened and competitively priced for the American market, and even though the compact sedan itself is quite…
Christmas is creeping up, which means your gift shopping days are starting to dwindle. We see a lot of great deals every day, but these were our 10 favorites from Tuesday.
More than two years after Volkswagen came clean on how it managed to skirt diesel emissions tests, we’re still learning about new ways it used so-called defeat devices. Like on Tuesday, when Germany’s automotive watchdog announced a recall of VW Touaregs that were apparently equipped with defeat devices.
While you, mere mortal of average income whose bank account cyclically drops faster than those amusement-park rides, sit in your living room and think about how unfortunate your upcoming monthly bills are since it’s the holidays, the wealthy inhabitants of this world are buying more and more Ferraris.
I’m not sure if I’ve plunged into some truly depraved tier of hipsterism or if I’m just still high off the fumes from Radwood 2, but this week I had an epiphany: cassette tapes are the best way to listen to music while driving.
By now we all know not to expect too much logic or reason from Craigslist. We know Craigslist is a deviant subset of humanity, sometimes an ideal place to find beater cars or dusty mid-’70s pong games, sometimes a terrifying hive of vice and exposed genitalia. This time, it’s a place where a strange serial Volkswagen…
An Uber rider in downtown Toronto was charged 18,518 Canadian dollars, or about 14,378 American dollars, on Friday for a ride that was five miles and 21 minutes long. All just a mistake, Uber has said.
Amazon’s running another board game Gold Box today, and while this one focuses more heavily on kid’s games, there’s a good chance anyone can find something they’ll enjoy in here.
There have been some good times for Tony Stewart in the past few weeks: He got engaged, and the sprint-car series he owns announced a television deal for next year. But other things haven’t been so great, like the fact that an angry fan’s been stalking him for years and he keeps wrecking sprint cars overseas.
The 90s! What a time. Cell phones were still new. CDs were a big deal. The world wide web was in its infancy. On the internet, things looked basic. And that was cool! For instance, auto.com—check out that stylish layout up top!
I don’t think I need to remind you, but blades and guns are not allowed in your carry-on luggage. TSA will find it, TSA will confiscate it and TSA will shame you in a hilariously savage Instagram post. If you’re still not following them at this point, you should. It’s the best account.
The Nürburgring is heaven on earth for car nuts, attracting the world’s most interesting cars, including manufacturers’ latest models. You can even drive it yourself! Sometimes a dream trip to the ‘Ring doesn’t end up being quite so enviable, though, and here are this year’s fail compilations that prove it.
Recently, Rolls-Royce had recording artist Skepta get in the back of a Phantom and record a song for a promotional video. It was meant to show how silent the car is—enough to be used as a recording studio—but it seems to also be so quiet that no one could hear their common sense telling them to put on a seat belt.
Days removed from seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I still can’t believe it’s a real movie. I can’t believe what writer-director Rian Johnson did: He took all of our preconceived notions of what a Star Wars movie is and evolved them. The movie is genuinely shocking at times—multiple times—but it also feels fully…
Most cop cars have a big metal-and-rubber push bar mounted to the front bumper. While it’s easy to imagine how the bar could be used, it’s rare to actually see it in action. That’s part of what makes this video so interesting: it’s a good example of why those things can be so handy, especially if you have to, say, …
Driving around topless with no doors and the windshield folded down is a pastime that connects Jeep Wrangler owners with those who putted around in the very first civilian Jeeps, CJ-2As, back in the 1940s. And now, with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, undressing the newest descendent of that CJ is easier than it has been in…
Oh! It’s you! My dearest, most refined holiday compatriot! My apologies, I didn’t see you were at the door.
Leaving an unattended car running is almost like painting a giant bullseye with “THEFT” in the middle on it, but it’s a conscious choice that people can freely make—for now, at least. A Florida state representative wants to charge theft victims with a crime if their cars are left running with the keys in them.
