      With so many options out there these days, where does everyone get their fix for automotive news? I know a lot of us just ingest whatever gets regurgitated to this site, but where are you pulling articles from?

      Obvious answers are Jalopnik, C&D, R&T, I also follow a few guys on social media - However I know there have to be a ton of different sources out there now, and I think it'd be interesting to discuss other options.

      Why you like them, how long you've been visiting the site, what they're about, etc.

      I used to do Edmunds a lot but they are awful these days.

      Autoblog is okay, but I have found that my Google News has learned what I like and serves up relevant, timely stuff.

      I rely on this place primarily. As a hobbyist, i don't need or care to get car-related info as soon as it happens. This place seems to serve up info quick enough for me. So my thanks go out to all those folks on this site who take a greater interest in auto news and who also take the time to post it here.

      I just wait until you text me “hey did you hear about this.” And then I’ve heard about it.

      This place and R&T (and others) twitter/instagram.

      I like that some of the stuff that gets posted here aren't the big stories in automotive news. Everyone on social media focuses on just the big headlines.

      Re-watching Top Gear series 2-22 with Clarkson/Hammond/May. Their news portion gives me everything I need to know, particularly about the new Dacia Sandero.

      Podcasts. Since I am not a new car person, new news doesn’t really matter to me. The crazy/big stuff gets hit by Driving While Awesome, Smoking Tire, and Spikes Car Radio. I do have Jalopnik in my RSS reader, but it’s mostly for the weird/culture stuff.

      Yeah, I get a good amount of Google notifications about auto news from various sources, which is great. Instagram is also helpful, I follow the usual culprits plus some auto writers and photogs.
