Disclaimer: I am well aware that these lists are largely bullshit, but since this one is so puzzling in its judgement, I figured it would be relevant to bring up here for discussion. After all, the job of us gearheads is to remedy misconceptions and promote wisdom about cars the world over so bear with me as I rant.
“You can’t judge a book by its cover.” Bull pizzle! If the cover doesn’t match then that’s a product issue!! These are objects, between word-of-mouth and appearances you have 99% of what determines reception. If reviews state that the product’s outside appearance is unlike it’s dynamics, then we have a problem. When a…
I hope you get ebola and a thousand apes clawing out your face you sack of shit.
So I can hit the f@$king open road and (for a little while at least) put a couple thousand miles between me and all this customer communication breakdown bullshit that’s been going on lately. Not that I’m the worlds greatest communicator by any stretch, but it’s a real pissoff when you really try to cut out your part…
Let me get something and show it up front now. Play it.
Reading reviews of repair shops is hilarious!!! “They charged me X amount for X job! ! ! ! I went online after and found the parts for a fraction of the price!!! I could have figured it out quicker, two hours for diagnosis is ridiculous!!!” Said every disgruntled customer
I was reading through the initial reactions to the new Impreza sport on Jalopnik last night and man alive...what a bunch of ninny whiners.
Because it relies on the idiot sellers to classify their own vehicles. These are the results of a search for “RWD coupes”. It makes you wonder how many cars of your intended type you end up never seeing because they weren’t tagged correctly.
Specifically I want to talk about “truck” word associations. I think one of the more pervasive themes of truck talk is centered around what a truck “is” as well as who should and shouldn’t own one.
It should not be all confusing and odd like this, it should be simple and straight, only diverging for the manual mode, if it’s there.
Ok.. Rant time!
Lunch hour, commercials, before bed, poop breaks... if there is nothing better to do at any given moment, you can bet that I (like many other Opponauts) am perusing local Craigslist sites for my next adventure in Hoontown. It’s fantastic to see what people drive and what people have built.
After looking at thousands…
This is the XV concept, or “looks bin” to pull from for the next XV. Basically, its much wider, shorter and a little longer and aside from looking like a squashed concept version of the current RAV4 its a smart update to one of Subaru’s best selling little hatches. That being said, I think Subaru needs to be really…
If you don’t want it, if you are keen to diss it, fine. But don’t go jumping on the one guy who likes the damn car.
One of the many things I want is a manual turbo Volvo. This is a problem for several reasons, but the one that bothers me the most is other people being shitty. I do believe that people get to do whatever they want with their own car, but one of my pet peeves is when people buy something rare, or nice, or both, and…
Subaru BRZ by STi for your time.
Sometimes, manufacturers are just too dumb. We need to stop them! Tesla haters, unite! And, also, we can make some more Tesla haters with this article. I hope.
This morning I got into a discussion with a coworker. He is confused about how a laser can shine into a pilots eyes. Apparently he thinks that airplanes are designed so that the pilot cannot see the ground from inside the cockpit.
