Buying tires can, at first, be an intimidating endeavor. Especially if you’ve never done it before. There are a myriad of options to choose from and then you have to decide which of them fits your driving style and local conditions. Fear not! The Jalopnik community is here to help.
If I’ve learned one thing in the automotive world, it’s that we all absolutely positively hate a lot of stuff. There are brand rivalry arguments that go on for days and can tear friendships apart. There are just certain types of cars that make us cringe every time we see them. And there are just those god-awful…
Tires! They’re one of the most important aspects of your car, so buying the right set for the right situation is extremely important. What are your best tips for buying tires?
Today’s cars are wonderful machines that can detect when you, the driver, are getting drowsy or provide on-board WiFi so your passengers can get some work done while they’re being driven. They’re wonders of modern technology, but despite this, cars are still lacking in a few crucial features.
The great thing about the automotive world is that our work is never quite done. There’s so much cool shit in this world that there’s another car to fix, another track to drive, another race to attend. Everyone is uniquely different, but we can all get together at the end of the day and talk longingly about the…
For whatever reason, the 2018 Aston Martin DB4 GT crossed my path again today. That name is a funny one, as the DB4 GT was one of Aston’s great cars of the 1960s, but the company decided to remake 25 of them this year. It’s part of an interesting new trend, and I’d like to see it keep going.
My position on this question is already clear: If everyone all had the same car, the same make and model, for all people in all positions, that car should be the Lamborghini Diablo GT. But my opinion is not the only one.
Today’s cars come with a wealth of technology that people just 20 years ago could only dream of. They don’t fly yet, but they do damn near everything else! You can get semi-autonomous safety tech, on-board WiFi and engines with variable compression. All very cool, but do you sometimes wish that other features would…
Modifying your car is the most surefire way to make it yours. It sets the car apart from all the other lame-o cars on the road and you get to express yourself a little bit. We all have our favorite mods.
The bucket list is a well-traveled genre, appealing and customizable across the board for preteen girls and grown-ass adults alike. Don’t act like you haven’t longingly sighed, “shit, I’d really like to do that before I die” because we have all done it. All of us.
My car is completely stock, so I’m always curious as to what other people who do mod their cars like to add. You might be the type of person who has modified their car so heavily that it’s unrecognizable from what it used to be. You might just do some light modding to fit your exacting tastes. If that’s the case, then…
Sleeper cars are fun because you can thrash most of the competition with them and then pass right by law enforcement without alerting anyone of the fun you’ve just had. What could be better?
Sleeper cars! They’re one of my favorite sub-category of cars. Highly customizable and with varying degrees of power and performance, they’re designed to blend fun and utility. What could be better?
It doesn’t matter if you’re the salesman or the interested buyer: Conducting a test drive isn’t always easy. Everyone has their own unique way of driving a car. Not all of them are safe.
This has been weighing on my mind a lot lately as I turn 31 today, and I’ve been a certified car fanatic for at least 15 years. I truly enjoy cars, the freedom and mobility they can facilitate in our lives, and most of all the camaraderie involved in the automotive community. Do you give car-related gifts to others,…
It’s a summer Friday. You aren’t really working. We’re barely working. In fact we’re forcing the intern to watch Starship Troopers because he’s never seen it before (I know.) Instead, come chat with us.
Being a car salesperson can be a tough job. I mean, you have to deal with customers, who you and I know are usually the worst kind of people. Then again, the sales people can have their own issues. I feel like no place makes these issues come out more than the test drive. What’s your horror story?
There’s something about music and cars that just kinda goes hand in hand. I’m sure some of you out there like a pure, silent driving experience, but nothing rivals the memories of a solid playlist and a long, long drive when the time is right.
Names are one of the most important parts of cars. Names represent a car in the abstract, act as a stand-in for them when they aren’t physically before you. Names can evoke wonder or awe or even laughter. But which are the best car names?
They say it’s the things you love that come back to hurt you in the end. When it comes to racing, sometimes it seems like all that “hurt” comes from a gang of the No Fun Police barging in and mandating a whole bunch of rules and regulations that require this balls-to-the-wall sport to refrain from indecent exposure,…
