That's it. I'm finished reading articles griping about giving automotive recommendations to non-gearhead friends. You know them. They have the tag "RANTS" and then the writer promptly complains about the action of giving car advice. I've read them twice in one week on Jalopnik (and don't get me started on Oppositelock). And I'm fed up with them.
For instance, last week, Matt Hardigree decided to preach to non-car people saying they were wrong and then provided a series of facts why, most of which will be ignored in favor of that big hybrid Japanese/German sedan. (We'll have to wait for the 4th quarter sales reports to see if there were results from his effort.)
