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

For about the last year or so, we’ve been running a column here at Jalopnik called Countersteer. Every Tuesday, we’d ask you guys a question, you’d answer in the comments and every Monday, we’d collect our favorites responses from the previous week and package them, nice and neat, into a post for you.

The questions we ask have to do with a variety of topics, including car ownership, driving, habits, opinions and culture, to name a few. We try to find topics where people have personal stories, because those are always the most fun.


These were some of our favorites of this year.
