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

2016 is, thankfully, almost over. All the best musicians died, very few of the movies were any good, and global fascism appears to be hip and cool again. But! The cars we Jalops drove were great. And also bad. Now we want to hear how your driving year went.


As the year winds down and much of our staff is on a break, I figured I’d turn it over to you fine readers to hear about the best and worst cars you drove over the past 12 months.

Maybe it was your own car, a good and nice car you love to drive daily. Maybe it was an exotic supercar you somehow talked your way into. Maybe you bought something old or new and made a dream come true.


Conversely, I’d love to hear what your worst experiences in cars were. Did you drive any duds? Still stuck in an unreliable crapwagon you can’t get rid of? Did you rent a Nissan Versa at the airport? Did your beloved dream car turn into a nightmare?

Give us your best and worst. We’re here to listen.

A g35 with no synchros was the best and worst car I drove, but mostly worst. Learned a lot though!

Best was my WRX because I have only been able to look at it for so long, my epilepsy/seizures have been too frequent and severe for me to have my license. Waking up from every seizure, my first coherent thoughts were not about my bleeding cheek, or strained back, it was always “Shit I Have to wait even more :( I just want to drive“.
