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

For reasons I cannot understand, people keep giving Jalopnik writers cars to drive. This year our best cars ranged from the new Miata to the McLaren 570S, and our worsts included the Chevy Trax and a monstrous machine called the Hoffman. How was your driving year?


Tell us about the best and worst stuff you drove in 2015. Maybe it was your own car, or some abysmal rental car, or an awesome (or terrible) test drive experience, or how you talked yourself into a buddy’s car and walked away impressed. Or sad.

One more that didn’t quite make my “best” cut, but maybe should have: that glorious Accumoto 911 up top. I need to talk my way into more old-school air-cooled Porsches next year.

What about you?

Worst? That’s easy.

I didn’t drive it so much as I suggested where it should go, and the wheels skittered about like an elephant seeing a mouse in a 1950s cartoon. With the base four-banger and the CVT, my rental had about as much pep as an overfed panda. I think said panda would’ve asked me if the highway merge I was considering was on my Outlook calendar, and if it wasn’t, he’d schedule it for next Monday.

I could go on for paragaphs upon paragraphs but the Compass doesn’t even deserve that. Forget it exists and avoid it at all costs. It’s not a competent car, it’s not a well-built car, and it doesn’t even feel like a safe car when you’re driving it. Stay far, far away.
