Always tow a vehicle by its frame, not its body. I’ll repeat: by THE FRAME, and not THE BODY. Otherwise, your tow rope may leave a piece or two of your car behind. Like the entire frame.
Any car more than a couple of decades old that’s still on the road has likely been the recipient of some serious, time-consuming repair work. This means that, at some point, a previous owner decided the car was worthy of being kept alive. But what is it about certain cars that makes them deserving of a second chance,…
If you’ve ever wondered how your car’s battery stays charged, wonder no more. I cracked open a junkyard alternator and recorded the wonders that lie within in the second installation of our new video series, David Dissects.
This video shows a group of hillbillies taking an old Ford truck out to the back woods, placing it on blocks, shooting it in the face with a shotgun, and revving the engine so long, it seizes. Then the ruffians break out the chainsaw and do some seriously grisly stuff that has permanently scarred my psyche.
This is bad. I’ve got three weeks to turn a rusty carcass into an off-road beast, and there’s just no way in hell. Not after what happened this past weekend.
In 2015, Researchers from MIT, Harvard and Hasselt University (in Belgium) estimated that VW’s 482,000 cheating diesels would lead to an estimated 59 premature deaths in the U.S. Now some of those same researchers have taken a look at the 2.6 million TDIs sold in Germany, and the premature death figures are staggering.
The Mercedes G500 4x4² is already way over the top, with portal axles, enormous wheels and tires, and eight fancy shock absorbers. But German tuning company Brabus has taken that brobdingnagian beast and emboldened it even better with the Brabus 550 Adventure 4x4², the ultimate in tacticool off-roaders.
Damari Wayne reportedly got away with his first two carjackings. His third would’ve gone the same way, if it hadn’t been for the car’s meddling three pedals and stick shift.
The Land Rover LR4 was one of the few three-row luxury SUVs you could actually take off-road. But it’s a dinosaur, ancient and clumsy. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery that replaces it is leaner, more comfortable and still goes to work when the pavement disappears. The Discovery badge is back, and it means something…
Yesterday was a very sad day, because in a Walmart parking lot in Englewood, Florida, a Ford Fusion drove right onto a 1959 Chevrolet Corvette’s hood, causing significant body damage to the classic C1. If you need to grab a box of tissues before reading on, I don’t blame you. Sniff.
Rob Dahm—the popular YouTuber who built the absolute-bonkers, first ever four-rotor, all-wheel drive Mazda RX-7—let other popular YouTuber Vehicle Virgins drive his other RX-7 (a three rotor). Sadly, during that drive, the hood was damaged, and now there’s a shitstorm happening on YouTube and Twitter.
Today, we wrote a story about how, even with driverless cars, Uber’s future isn’t looking so hot. But maybe there’s one person can save the ailing company: Superman!
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.
Sgt. John Perrine, a Public Information Officer for the Indiana State Police, recently issued a public service announcement to make sure everyone is aware of a truly revolutionary feature found on every modern car. BMW drivers are going to want to grab a notebook and pen.
The new 2017 Land Rover Discovery— the successor to the mighty LR4— is upon us, and I’m in Utah off-roading and on-roading (Is that a word? Anyway) the crap out of it for a few days. So tell me what you want to know, and I’ll do my darnedest to figure out some answers.
First generation Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras, built between model years 1999 and 2007, are plagued with a terrible disease: their tailgate handle linkages are made of the cheapest plastic known to humankind, and as a result, thousands of these trucks drive around with gaping holes in their rear ends. It’s…
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
Chevy’s ZL1 is already a total monster on the track, but now the brand is offering a 1LE performance package which could very possibly mean we all need to brace ourselves for the beastliest Camaro to ever hit the streets.
Sometime around 1977, a classic Jeep Wagoneer became entombed after a sand dune in Truro, Massachusetts shifted and engulfed a garage. Now, after four decades, the Jeep has been removed from the garage, and holy shit, does it look terrible.
