We have one question for Mercedes Formula One driver Nico Rosberg: why didn’t you turn? On the final lap of the Austrian Grand Prix, Rosberg blew a corner and ran wide directly into teammate Lewis Hamilton’s car.
Tell jay I said hi!
A minor accident with a bicyclist. A police officer who allegedly lost his memory. Seventeen cars, mostly sports cars including exotics like a couple of Lamborghinis and a Nissan GT-R, impounded for more than 100 days with no explanation given to their owners. It’s a deeply baffling story unfolding in the small town…
I never divulged my secrets. Especially since that would make me a hypocrite. I always made fun of the customers that came in and said “my car is doing this and i looked it up online and it said it needs this”
I’ve never bought a new car. I would like to buy just one in my lifetime though. Something that would satisfy me for 10 or 15 years so it wouldn’t be such a bad financial decision. Right now, the M2 is the only car that could be “the one”. Luckily for me (and my wallet), they are hard to obtain right now. I refuse to…
I swear by rule #5. Internet forums have saved me a lot of diagnostic time by sending me straight to the most likely fault. I used to work for a national chain repair shop and i had a reputation among the other shops in town of being able to diagnose/fix anything. This meant I often ended up with other people’s…
Here is a little secret: every single problem that you will ever have on a car has already been experienced by someone else, and it is on the internet.
Yes. The unfortunate truth is that we (cheapskate performance and depreciated luxury car buyers) are the reason that inexpensive sports cars are all but gone from the new car lots.
I was very close to getting a Mazda6 wagon, but backed out after reading about engine problems on the forums.
To enthusiasts, the appeal in new cars is in a way poisonous: They are best suited to a layman who wants a reliable car requiring the least trouble. It’s always financially sound to buy a new car and drive it until it dies.
I guess at the heart of the matter, I might be cheapskate. It isn’t that I’m hoarding my cash with a plan to retire to Fiji when I’m 40. Not at all, I’d miss my wife and kids. My reasons for not wanting to buy a new car go beyond a simple desire to not hemorrhage greenbacks. It is more about the subtlety of value. Let…
I don’t recall ever listening to your show but since I don’t have much to do now, I’ll proceed... Considering the current situation of Gawker, it could be interesting in a different way this time.
Editor-in-Chief of Jalopnik Patrick George joins the Daily Turismo Radio Show via skype to talk about crashing CamEros, being a badass, and the differences between Texas and New York City. Listen live on TalkRadioOne.com or via Tunein radio app for your phone (and search TalkRadioOne) at 7PM Pacific time (10PM…
The wheels were an option that year ... ordinarily came with wheel covers.
Dearly needs a bath. Looks ignored, but maybe not abused. Glad it’s a manual, if this was an automatic it wouldn’t be able to keep up with its own shadow.
Sometimes these get oil thirsty about that mileage, and if it hasn’t had a timing chain done, it’s due. Not too shabby, though.
Something else: I’m really going to try to make sure my car’s radio system works, and works well. If I’d have radioed in the issue I was having on track, and the guys who knew the car better than I did radioed back to pull off and park it, that’s what I would’ve done. I wouldn’t have had to wait to come in to ask what…
