Tesla tweeted out a video Sunday morning of its Tesla Model X rolling over after being shoved onto a sandbox by a sled. But even if the tweet read “...the first and only SUV to achieve a NHTSA 5-Star safety rating in every category...” this rollover isn’t the test conducted by the U.S. government, it seems to be a…
A couple months ago, after I struggled to decide if I wanted to buy a 1979 Jeep Cherokee Golden Eagle, readers told me I’d be a fool not to. So I heeding their advice and hauled the Jeep home through an ice storm. Yesterday, I finally washed the big SUV, and my god were readers right: this Jeep is incredible.
Many months ago, I met a Jalopnik reader whose love for the Pontiac Vibe has no bounds. He was part of an owner’s group, his Facebook profile was filled with pictures of his Vibe, and he just kept talking about how great the little hatchback was. At first, I thought this was a bit odd, but now I’ve realized that he…
Austin Rogers, the New York City bartender who famously won 12 out of 13 Jeopardy shows and took home over $400,000 in winnings, then hatched a plan to travel the world in an old Mercedes wagon, is in the process of starting a car show for the “every man,” TMZ reports. Among the cars allegedly pitched: the Subaru Brat…
Last fall, I bought an $800 Jeep Grand Wagoneer that hadn’t run in 12 years. After months of wrenching, in March, I drove with my coworker Andrew Collins on a grand journey from near Detroit, Michigan to the off-road trails of Moab, Utah. Here’s video of that trip’s first leg—the Jeep’s first highway voyage in over a…
If you’ve ever been curious to know how hard it would be to power your car with your own legs via bicycle pedals, Russian mechanic and YouTube star Vlad is here to show you with his VAZ-1111 “Oka” hatchback.

I know I’m speaking with a huge audience of people looking for Rolls-Royces on the same site you go to find a “rust free” Geo Metro with a rebuilt title, but be wary about this red and gold knockoff, for it is not the opulent British luxury sedan you seek. It is an imposter.
Right now, I’m trying to get my 1979 Jeep Cherokee Golden Eagle on the road, and I’m struggling to answer a question: How much preventative maintenance should I do? (Because this is getting expensive).
An Arizona mechanic named Nick Dawson just scored the “barn find” of the century: a 1993 Toyota MR2 Turbo with less than 1,500 miles on the clock. But getting the car wasn’t easy, because it had been stolen from the dealer 25 years prior.
There’s a giant go-kart track coming within driving range of Detroit next month, meaning my childhood dream of Mario Kart racing in real life might actually come true.
Today we wrote about how Dodge’s description of its Journey’s four-speed transmission is literally just the definition of an automatic. That sad but simple marketing got one commenter thinking of a brilliant new way to advertise.
The Dodge Journey is the last of the crappy DaimlerChrysler-era cars in Fiat Chrysler’s lineup. It’s a vehicle that sells based on one fact: It seats seven and costs about as much as a pack of Juicy Fruit. And while I could tell you all about why history won’t look kindly upon the cheap SUV, I don’t need to make fun…
Do you want to see a good car website filled with gorgeous images of machinery? Of course you do. So please allow me to show you the treasures that lie within Ferrari’s website.
Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas developed a large bump hours before the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race scheduled for this evening. So officials simply drilled and sawed into the bump, only to find a bunch of water underneath.
For a reason that I haven’t yet surmised, some people seem to think the Ferrari 360 is boring and dumb. I am here to correct those sentiments with a sentiment of my own: The 360 is one of the best Ferraris ever.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
The 2.0-liter turbocharged 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL’s fuel economy figures are in, and with numbers as high as 24 MPG combined, the world finally has a Wrangler with fuel economy that’s actually borderline “livable.”
