If you’re confused by NASCAR’s playoff system, you’re not the only one. The points system is confusing and terrible and has changed about a million times in the past few years, so it’s kind of a toss-up about who the hell will be competing for the championship. It’s one of those situations where you throw your hands…
Wouldn’t it be nice if every car was equipped with a self-preservation system? The thing couldn’t rattle itself apart because it was designed specifically to just snap back together. Easy! Or, y’know, you could do the same thing with a WRX-engined Dino.
You’ve probably heard The Kids saying this, and don’t know what it means. When someone on Twitter Dot Com tells you “weird flex”, they’re actually talking about the new Bronco and its visual similarity to the longstanding seven-seater not-a-station-wagon Ford Flex. Or something.
Dick jokes are a timeless classic. I’m pretty sure it was the first form of humor the cavemen developed when they started painting on walls for their kids to check out. Unfortunately nowadays, that kind of nonsense can get you in some deep trouble.
I know each and every one of you out there have been dying to own a Pinto. Just aching to have a chance to get your hands on one. It’s okay, you don’t have to admit it. Thankfully, there’s a way for you to do it yourself at virtually no cost to yourself!
This hasn’t happened for a some time, but I’m glad it did. I needed it today. This morning, we wrote about how Mazda is putting its Skyactiv-X engine into the upcoming Mazda 3. We called it Mazda’s “holy grail” engine. This colorful choice of words could mean only one thing:
Okay, this one’s really good.
Today’s story about Lincoln’s new door chime really struck a chord with many of you. Apparently, Lincoln engineers aren’t the only ones who have strong opinions about the sound their cars make. I mean, besides under the hood and from the speakers. It makes me wonder what other possible annoyances I’m missing out on.
It seems like everywhere you turn these days, you can’t get away from those damn electric scooters that keep taking over cities like the plague. Beverly Hills banned the things, but Bird is suing them because technically scooters have the same rights as drivers and bicyclists. Sounds like they could use an attorney at…
Anyone who would look at a Chevrolet Astro and say, “heh, but what if we put astroturf in it” is my kind of human. It was a pun just begging to be made a reality. But, almost even better, are the incredible puns it inspired in return.
Our man Robb Holland got to drive the new Panamera GTS. If you want a 911 but actually need to move adult humans and cargo, this car is it. Robb had some issues with the brakes, but we figured out why.
The old Acura RSX should have had more RDX.
The first time a new invention is introduced to the world, it is generally, uh, less than refined. The car was no exception. But isn’t it kind of terrible when those old cars are about as fast as we are today when we get stuck on the highway?
Earlier today, we wrote up Consumer Reports’ latest new-car reliability ranking, in which American brands did very poorly. Though one of you had a solution.
Puns: they’re really what makes life worth while. Well puns, and being allow outside in the Jalopnik compound’s exercise yard once a day. Ahhh, sweet sunlight.
Patrick George and Raphael Orlove will be heading across the country in a nearly-fifty-year-old BMW, embarking tomorrow. Wisely, they waited until the last minute to ask if anyone could provide a list of things they should bring along with them to make the trip easier.
We live in a world full of folks with unbounded creativity. Some people do things like make an incredibly ridiculous limo out of a mid-80s Honda Accord. Some incredible humans, on the other hand, seek out and destroy every possible moment that could use a pun with the kind of efficiency usually reserved for when I…
Test dummies are an integral part of keeping cars safe for ourselves and our families. Companies spend millions in testing to make sure their products are safe for consumers, and it isn’t a joking matter. That is, until earlier today when Auto Guy found a way. We all need a bit of laughter in our day when there are…
If electric cars truly are to be the future of the automotive industry, then the world is going to start looking different in ways we might not have anticipated. For example: what the heck are we going to do about all those parking garages? Tesla looks like it has an answer.
In an ideal world, everyone would be hunky-dory happy with the way the government functions. We don’t live in anything even slightly resembling a utopia, so sometimes, shit happens. Like, you might go to the hospital and the city seizes and crushes your car.
