Entire article dedicated to a single car and primarily about it's beauty, yet only three pictures of the car! One is of the car with the hood up (can't see a whole lot), the other is a distant black and white and the last is of the engine? » 4/11/14 10:49am 4/11/14 10:49am

Depends on how long they sell it for. I recently purchased a new vehicle in September. If this thing is still around in two years, I'd get it. For realz. I really enjoyed my '11 TDI SportWagen. Sure, it wasn't the manliest looking car, and I have no idea why I went with the shitty DSG in the thing, but it was a… » 4/11/14 10:09am 4/11/14 10:09am

I'm like that. I'm usually adamant about the stickers, less so about the frames. Frames can be removed in no-time. Stickers can be another story. » 4/11/14 8:26am 4/11/14 8:26am

This past fall I purchased a Nissan Xterra Pro-4X, manual. Once I had decided on the car I wanted, I started calling around and stopping in to multiple dealers (only 3 Nissan dealers within ~45 min of home). The pricing that all three were able to give beat the TrueCar price. When it came down to the nitty-gritty… » 4/10/14 3:53pm 4/10/14 3:53pm

That's a bit funny, because when the XJ came out, everyone was saying that the Jeeps of the past shouldn't have been sullied by such an association with an unibody. Everyone bitched it wasn't a real Jeep. Jeeps have frames, and most of them were heavy as hell. Built with real thick steel and got bad gas mileage. » 4/09/14 11:04am 4/09/14 11:04am

And even though everyone on Jalopnik (especially the writers) like's to assume that everyone is Speed Racer on the weekend with all the time they go to the track (read: almost no one actually goes to the track, just a handful do), will those three differentials be noticeable to me for 99% of my driving? Is the gear… » 4/08/14 3:53pm 4/08/14 3:53pm

You do that at every light? That's f'ing ludicrous. An emergency break won't do much in that event, and if you were rear-ended, your foot would naturally push the brake harder. » 4/04/14 12:24pm 4/04/14 12:24pm

Doug, I'm a seller and buyer like you. Instead of telling people how to buy used cars, it would sure as hell be a lot more helpful if you told them how to sell one.... well, it would be more helpful for me. Get on that one... » 4/02/14 4:19pm 4/02/14 4:19pm

Should include gas mileage changes as speed increases as well. Is worth noting that getting caught speeding once will probably blow any and all time savings since you'll have to wait around for the cop to write the ticket and then the time at court if you choose to fight it. » 4/02/14 10:30am 4/02/14 10:30am

I'm gonna have to say the RQ-4 "Global Hawk". Most people think of drones as relatively small in size... maybe as big as a very tall person. Then there is this whale of a thing from Northrop Grunman. It's huge. Not to mention that it has that typical "drone" appearance that is far different than a standard plane/jet. » 4/02/14 11:54am 4/02/14 11:54am

The Gini Coefficient... oh great. Let's use a relative indicator instead of an absolute indicator and some sort of context. Also, the Gini Coefficient is effected by so many different variables it's rather useless in this context. It's an over-simplification of too many things to hold any real weight. » 4/01/14 4:05pm 4/01/14 4:05pm

I was beginning to question people that said a CRX made a good beater. I've never actually seen one in what I would call a "beater" state. They go from decent to rust piles in far too fast to ever have a real "beater" stage. » 4/01/14 12:31pm 4/01/14 12:31pm
