You can buy more car than you need for day to day use, and it still might not handle every possible option. Read more

He means Gary Glitter did not personally profit.

I have a feeling Todd Philips used the song BECAUSE of the IRL implications. He’s trying to be as nihilistic and/or sadistic as the Joker. There are countless songs that could’ve fit into that sequence. This was the one that was written by a convicted pedophile/sex offender. Read more

As soon as I heard the start of the song, I thought... no... no way are they using this... no one would be that stupid. I was sadly wrong.

Except the wagon typically has more room behind the rear seat than a small crossover.

Tom - I agree with he premise that often times emotion sometimes supplants logic when picking a car, you’ll see that later in this comment lol. However, where I’d disagree is this notion that Americans always need something bigger and roomier. Your GTI is a perfect family car! I grew up in a family of 4 who took Read more

Just letting you know someone out here appreciates your reference. Apparently anti-touchscreen vitriol is the essence of Luddism, and Luddism is the essence of Jalopnik commentary.

I very much like this design. Usability is another topic.

So they ignored the complaints of the first-gen Chevy Volt owners about its capacitive touch controls, or why aircraft manufacturers made their controls touch-identifiable. Just to add more distraction from keeping one’s eyes on the road. I hope their standard semi-autonomous driving system is debugged.../s

This touchscreen button BS has to end. They’re a danger, as much as using a cell phone on the road is. Physical buttons can be navigated by touch, but you have to take your eyes off the road to use touchscreen buttons. I shouldn’t have to endanger my and everyone else’s lives just to turn down the f’ing heat in my car.

I will never own a car with volume control performed via a touch screen slider or motion control. It’s vile.

When are designers and buyers going to figure out that not having knobs and buttons for commonly used features is a safety hazard? I can change my climate control and audio without taking my eyes off the road because I can feel where everything is. I can’t feel the difference between buttons or sliders on a touch Read more

Let’s see what we have here... A 34 year-old Bimmer coupe with a bad respray, DOA A/C, an ill-fitting body kit, no center cap on the steering wheel, a cracked taillight lens and a dash toupee covering who-knows-what.  I’d rather pull my fingernails out with a pair of Vise Grips than deal with the future problems of Read more

Mom, MOM!!  I met a fellow atheist on Jalopnik today!!  He doesn’t know it yet, but we’re so going to be best friends.

Full disclosure: I’m the one that suggested this book to Elizabeth. So if you have any comments about the fact that this isn’t technically about racing/motorsports, or that it’s not about cars, or any other women/motorcycle shit, please direct your vitriol here in the comments to me and not Liz.

I once rode from Kansas City to Denver on a 650cc sportbike, and it’s still one of the best and worst things I’ve ever done. I don’t ever really want to do it again, but I’m incredibly happy that I did it.
