It’s strange how one bad experience in one car can follow us around for the rest of our lives. Like a bad smell. Or a shitty phantom.

Last week, I asked you guys for an experience that absolutely ruined a car for you. Maybe there was nothing wrong with the car at all. Maybe you were just sitting in it when something terrible happened.

Let’s investigate.
