Everyone here already knows I'm a smart-a**. I love cars, I have a bachelors in electrical engineering and I'm paying for that education as a certified technician. I work on all Eurotrash, but Mercedes is my specialty.

Owner of faulty 2013 Porsche 911 shares his grief [video]
Great video! He has a really good attitude. However, as sad as it is, this is to be expected of the first year of an infinitely complex, new vehicle platform. BMW set the precedent by buying ALL those 2002 745's back and Porsche shouldve followed suit. This makes them look pretty bad...not the fau...

Toyota introduces a new range of fuel-efficient engines
Alpine6speed is right. Mazda negates the use of premium fuel in its high-comp (13:1) skyactiv engines by having EXTREMELY efficient pumping of the A/F into and out of the cylinders. The inlet swirl, piston design and DI coupled with LONG 4-2-1 exhaust headers do the trick. The downside is the dep...

You buy German for technical/mechanical innovation, not features...although, if your wallet is thick enough, they'll sell you a bunch of features too.

2015 Dodge Challenger to get an eight-speed automatic, more powerful V8s - report
Id like to respectfully disagree. Big, lazy V8s dont last long because they are lightly stressed; they last because, after decades of practice, we know how to build one that lasts! Olds and Cadillac cut their teeth in the late 50s-early 60s getting the details right on how to make a dependable V8 ...

IIHS states the obvious: rearview cameras more effective than parking sensors
As lovely as these aids are, EVERYONE should be required to know how to reverse. I see people all the time who cant negotiate the simple angles involved in placing their car in a parking space, nevermind knowing whats around/behind them. Calculators are cheap and ubiquitous, but we should still kn...

Chevrolet says Camaro Z/28 engineers had to stop the wheel from rotating inside the tire [video]
I watched a coworker do this with a customers chipped, V10 Touareg a few years ago while he had it in low range. I would never have believed it if i hadn't seen it with my own eyes. It ruined the shi* out of the rear tires, too.
