CNBC's Dennis Kneale Wouldn't Know A Car If It Hit Him In The Ass

Dennis Kneale, CNBC's bespectacled lunchtime loud-mouth attacked American cars for not having an "iPod jack in every car." Kneale's obviously never heard of Ford's epic Sync system or the aux-in jack in every GM vehicle.

That aux-in jack that can be found in every GM product is the same aux-in jack you'll find in every Toyota product. But more to the point of supposed technological superiority — find me a Toyota or Honda-branded vehicle with a plug-in-play system that works as effortlessly as Ford's Sync system.


Tell you what — Kneale can send us an e-mail (ray-at-jalopnik-dot-com) and we'll stop by Englewood Cliffs in a fully-optioned Toyota Camry hybrid and a similarly-equipped Ford Fusion hybrid and you can tell me which one is more technologically advanced. Hell, we could show up in a Sync-equipped Ford Focus and it'd kick the Camry's ass in techie goodness. So until Kneale learns a bit more about what equipment comes in what model, we'd suggest he stick to doing what he does best — blathering on about things that aren't cars. We'd suggest perhaps maybe class warfare. See the full clip below:

WTF? Pretty much EVERY carmaker are idiots with their slow adoption of ipod/aux interfaces. It's astounding. I assume they figured they were protecting their OE market, but they just ended up looking stupid and sending people to the aftermarket. I think Scion might have been the first one to really catch on, but apart from that, they've all been pretty slow.
