How to open the gas door on a borrowed car. I'm the token car guy of the family and my dad got a Cadillac CTS and I took it out needed gas. Pull into the station and look for the button to pop the door (his old Caddy had a button and my Jeep had a button) couldn't find it. Went to the gas door and tried to pry it… » 9/22/14 11:34am 36 minutes ago

Replace flipping people off with giving them a thumbs up for being dumb. I was once stuck in traffic trying to make a left hand turn into a driveway and some lady in a X5 roars up and blocks my entrance. I let out "are you kidding me" and she keeps her eyes straight ahead avoiding contact. I roll down my window and … » 9/16/14 11:52am 9/16/14 11:52am

I will say the Mazda Protege to Mazda Protege5. The Protege was pretty boring all through the 90's, and truly most of their cars were pretty boring (I can't fit in a Miata thus I hate them) but then in 2002 when Mazda brought the Protege5 to North America the "zoom zoom" image came true. I downsized from a Jeep Grand… » 9/09/14 2:52pm 9/09/14 2:52pm

I remember once helping a friend buy a car on the weekend...the dealer was giving out free hot dogs and hamburgers. Since I was hungry I had a burger, and I ended up getting food poisoning...I still remember the feeling of going for a test drive in a 2006 Honda Civic and having that "I need to go to the bathroom… » 6/09/14 1:32pm 6/09/14 1:32pm

I fear two of these things crashing into eachother after 2am...and both people are blackout drunk because "hey driverless car means no DUI" Just imagine the carnage, the fights, the yelling and the inability to render first aid because there is not an attentive driver in the accident. » 5/28/14 1:16pm 5/28/14 1:16pm

The Endras BMW "Ultimate Blogger" campaign. They gave someone a 65k/yr job, a leased BMW and a condo...580k hits in round one and 30k applicants. Fast forward 3 years and the blog is nothing more then an average BMW dealers blog and none of my automotive friends have ever heard of it. » 5/14/14 12:27pm 5/14/14 12:27pm

It was Christmas morning and I was running late to see my daughter. Here in Toronto we had just emerged from the ice storm and I still didn't have power so I was crashing on my friends couch, and mega irritable as I hadn't slept well in 4 days. I am driving to the highway and everyone is moving at a snails pace so… » 4/10/14 1:38pm 4/10/14 1:38pm

Mercedes S class, the trunk can fit anything you want, the seats are comfortable enough to sleep in (and trust me, the car becomes a second home as getting a baby to sleep you quickly learn to take them for a drive), its quiet inside and the rear windows have curtains built in to keep the sun off your kids face. Also… » 4/04/14 12:49pm 4/04/14 12:49pm

For a sports car, the Audi TT. I was looking at every little sports car on the market a few years back and never thought of the TT...then I had to help my mechanic drop off a car one day and drove one, and shocked myself at how low I could get the seat. I am 6'4 » 3/27/14 2:05pm 3/27/14 2:05pm

The first CTS/CTS-V. My dad ordered a CTSV from the dealer in 05 (his 5th Caddy since 92) and he showed up to take delivery, got in the car and saw it was a manual and turned to the dealer and said "Cadillacs don't come in manual" and then re-did the order for a CTS with a sport package and an auto. When he told me… » 3/26/14 12:08pm 3/26/14 12:08pm

Any "waterless" wash spray. I do a lot of marketing work in the automotive world and I refuse every time to work with one of these companies because I don't believe in them. Water is an essential part of a car wash...and with the winter salt, you need to hose down your car 360 to get an effective clean. » 2/21/14 11:41am 2/21/14 11:41am

McLaren is the brand that makes me excited as much as it does make me hate supercars. I had a poster of the F1 on my wall when I was a kid, so when they announced they were making a new one I was foaming at the mouth. It's released, it looks like Ford helped style it based off the F1 and it lost its "cool" touches. It… » 2/21/14 10:51am 2/21/14 10:51am
