Kicked off in 1982, the Ranger has long been a staple of American farming and rural life.

Honda Is Bringing The Hornet Back

Hornet is a storied nameplate in the motorcycle landscape. Well, it is everywhere but here, anyway. Back when the Hornet originally launched back in 1998 Chrysler still held the Hornet name in the U.S. market thanks to a long dead AMC product, so here it was known as the CB600F. Maybe it would have done […]

BMW’s Gesture Controls Will Have You Feeling Like A Mediocre Wizard

Twirl your finger, and the volume changes. Stick your thumb out like a hitchhiker and watch your BMW switch to the next song. Throw two fingers at the screen like you’re about to poke someone in the eye, and the volume mutes or unmutes. This is using gesture control in the new BMW X4, and […]

The Nissan Titan Is On The Chopping Block: Report

The 2022 Nissan Frontier looks pretty dang good. Pickups, big and small, have never been more popular in a mainstream sense, and so the timing was certainly right for Nissan to revitalize its midsize hauler — a model that dates back 17 years if you can believe it.Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

Here’s A Dozen Of The Worst Tire Names I Can Think Of

Yesterday I had to buy a new set of tires for my wife’s VW Tiguan, because the left rear tire decided that it had enough of the tire business and wanted to see what the scrap rubber or perhaps laying-in-a-ravine-behind-a-shopping-center field had to offer. So, I had to buy some new tires, and that means […]

But some details, like—if you look in that diagram above the Olds you can see it—how the spare was way up against the rear seatback in the trunk, […]
