CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.  

Whether the car is new or old, chances are that some little electronic gremlin lives in it somewhere. We generally don’t mind, though. It’s what gives the car “personality.” And we sure love personality.

Last week, I asked you guys for some of the weirdest car quirks you’ve ever encountered. Heater only start when it rains? Windshield wipers only work when the sun is out?

My dad’s old Saab had a burglar alarm that went off only if a truck passed by while it was parked. Nothing else set it off. We just supposed that it didn’t like trucks.

Here are your oddities.
