It’s thankfully a rare problem but a horrifying one: an unwitting driver accidentally dumps diesel fuel into their gasoline-powered car, somehow bypassing the differently sized nozzles. This is disastrous for your engine, so if it happens, here’s what to do next.
Unless you’re driving an R31 Nissan Skyline, you’ve probably lost your car in a parking lot before. Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. My 1996 Toyota Camry is one of the most common cars ever made so I lost it on an almost daily basis until I installed a big, dumb ol’ roof rack on it.
Have you ever had the problem of getting shot at when you drive to your job in middle management at a suburban credit union? It’s a problem a lot of people have. Luckily, several companies out there make armored cars for the people who need to shake off varying calibers of lead flying towards them while driving—even…
Toyota has been making its beige-tacular Camry since 1982. Not once during those 35 years has anyone said “Wow, look at that Camry.” While the 2018 Camry is moving in a new direction with more aggressive-ish styling, Toyota’s midsize sedan has historically been just a reliable car and nothing else. It’s a store-brand…
As a teen, it’s common to go from one extreme to the next. One day, you feel like the coolest kid in school, by far. The next, you have a giant pimple and your crush saw it, causing a confidence crisis so big that you’ll definitely never, ever forget how you felt that day. That’s kind of how Toyota is acting right now.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Since none of you have the heart to do what is necessary—to serve the cause of true justice—read this instead.
Toyota has heard one too many jokes about the Camry dent, and about how it carries the large, beige-colored flag of vanilla midsize sedans. But it’s 2017. The angles are sharper, the wheels are sportier, and Toyota wants you to stop calling its cars boring. Please. Guys. Please.
Every decent living mammal on the planet knows that if you hit a car with your car because of some mistake you made, you pull over. I think this basic idea is carved into the Hammurabi Stele, even. That’s not what happened at all here, as a terrible Toyota Camry driver hits a Subaru BRZ, tries to run away, and learns…
The Toyota Camry is the fourth best-selling vehicle in America. Toyota sold more than a third of a million of these sedans in 2016. So why does its face look like that?
This is Toyota’s new 2018 Camry Monster Energy NASCAR Cup car, complete with “sporty” XSE trim-level badges and the new insectoid face based on that of the brand-new roadgoing Camry. NASCAR announced today that the new Camry will debut to give us strange racing-themed nightmares starting in the 2017 season, ahead of…
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
It’s fair to say that a very likely unhealthy portion of my life revolves around cars, and a truly alarming percentage of my thoughts are automotive-related. These are my jackstands to bear. That’s why I always love finding a whole new automotive concept I somehow have missed. This time it’s the excitingly dull…
There are many different kinds of cars and many different kinds of driving. For each of these modes, there is a safe, obvious, reliable choice of vehicle. These are the Toyota Camrys (Camries?) of the car world, and I think I can pinpoint them all.
If you looked–really looked—at the 2016 Toyota Camry, you wouldn’t expect the leggy girls in short dresses who get into the clubs for free to climb out of it. It’s humbler than that. Maybe if the leggy girl got hitched and then moved out to the suburbs, maybe. And that’s why I like it so much.
We’re riding along with Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin in the pace car this morning, so why not come along with us? Let’s take a quick lap of Sonoma Raceway, one of the few road courses on the NASCAR Sprint Cup calendar.
The reason why this six-year-old Camry costs as much as a used McLaren is simple: it’s not exactly a Camry. It’s a custom-built SEMA special complete with a NASCAR V8.
Remember that one horrible yet unforgettable commercial for a Toyota Camry, where an excited mom described the handling of the car as “grounded to the ground?” The reason why they used that unintelligible take instead of using dialogue an actual human would say is because Toyota has made the same car for the last…
The hard part about loving cars is that people who hate cars keep asking you what car they should buy.
