      I decided to look at this from a strictly factual basis. About 35,000 Americans died in traffic wrecks in 2018, 94% of which were classified as operator error. I assume a huge part of the 6%...

      Well it might be a touch longer waiting, Some of Honda's factories are shut down because their IT is as bad as their infotainment systems. I've said it repeatedly that one of the sleeper advantages...

      I was tempted to say it's foolish to think that Ford would keep taller gearing than the Wrangler Rubicon, but then I stopped to think about the transmissions. The manual will have a dedicated Crawl...

      Gas tanks are sealed with check valves. That's why the car knows if the gas cap is off or loose. It can draw in air as fuel is pulled out, but it's not just constantly blowing air in and out of the...

      It seems like an especially odd choice for a truck, since they are more likely to see abusive use where those in-wheel motors are rattled to death so much more quickly than neighborhood/highway used...

      Anything a human can do, a non-human will eventually be able to do better and more reliably given enough time and money. Given that they will eventually be able to do it, the only question then is...

      Towing is a weird thing. I've seen TFL Truck do videos showing a half-ton pickup truck getting 8mpg while towing and meanwhile the latest, most aerodynamic semis that Walmart's been adding to their...

      I agree with this entirely. It is expensive to own and operate a car when you're an hourly worker with an irregular schedule. There's a lot of people who use Uber/Lyft to get to and from work, even...

      Yes and no. As long as you are cool with that car being Uber/Lyft/Waymo and having a safety driver aboard depending on conditions and route, then yes, that's absolutely possible. With NO safety...

      That's the answer. And the odd thing is that demand for new cars dropped off less than was originally projected since the buyers of new cars tend to be higher income, salaried workers. The very...

      Really? Geez, go figure, I am already getting old and forgetting which filters were in which models/years. Maybe it was the 92/93 GS-R I am thinking of, along with the 99 Civic Si that used the flat...

      Ah yes, the old "It's ok for me to hurt business owners because they aren't me" mentality. Guess who loses their job when the dealership needs to cut costs? Low paid workers. When you rob a high end...

      That's fine on the S2000 where there's a cone filter inside the airbox, but the 90s Honda/Acuras had the flat filter on bottom, lid on top. So if you take the lid off you're getting unfiltered air.

      You'd think so, but oddly enough they had the most hiring last month and that was before much of the country was even up and running yet:

      My favorite part about every time something goes wrong with government is how quickly people want to overthrow the government. If you want to turn Minneapolis into Mogadishu, that's fine by me, but...

      The dealership cares. They might be out a ton of money in insurance deductible. Do you think insurance companies just hand out free money whenever a dealer says a car got stolen? No. There's always a...

      Nah, you have to at least do an intake. Leave the exhaust alone but do a cone filter intake on an aluminum tube. The intake noise is fantastic on these cars, and it's easy to swap back to the stock...

      It looks basically all-original. Those are even the original 94-95 wheels and everything. In for updates; I'm curious how much it just needs to be cleaned up rather than any significant mechanical...

      Looters and arsonists aren't anti-fascists though, they're anarchists. An anti-fascist is someone who votes to support democracy and peaceful coexistence of all cultures. People smashing windows and...

      As has been pointed out repeatedly, COVID-19 kills old people, and old people vote Trump. It's literally a Trump-killing disease. The mortality rate is next to nothing for people under 55 and the...
