  1. Ace of Base: 2017 Honda Fit LX

    Eight months ago, we took a sojourn through the build and price tool for the Honda Fit LX. Since then, Honda’s increased the price and added a paint option. So far in 2017, the Fit has sold at a more rapid pace than last year, despite the addition of an HR-V that logically should have cannibalized some Fit […] The post Ace of Base: 2017 Honda Fit LX appeared first on The Truth About Cars…
  2. Correction: Stop The Violence

    Yesterday, we discussed one automotive journalist’s rather hysterical reaction to the Dodge Demon. That writer contacted TTAC shortly after the article was published to request a particular sentence be removed. In the interest of complete clarity, I’ve elected (and Mark has agreed) to publish this correction instead. Richard Truett writes, I was a little annoyed to […] The post Correction: Stop The Violence appeared first on The Truth About …
  3. Parked In Drive: 1968 Volkswagen Transporter Type II ‘Doublecab’

    Pickup trucks are a stereotypically American product, right up there with blue jeans and barbeque. The best-selling vehicle in America for the past 35 years? Ford F-Series. And the pickup truck defines our needs as a nation, maximizing towing, luggage, and passenger capacities as much as possible at the lowest possible price. But must a pickup […] The post Parked In Drive: 1968 Volkswagen Transporter Type II ‘Doublecab’ appeared first on The Truth About …
  4. QOTD: What Vehicle was the First Ride of Your Life?

    Last week, I asked you to think back to your formative years and your driving experiences therein. Many of you responded with tales of when your nervous fingers first gripped the wheel, and the happy experiences (sometimes dangerous if you’re Chris Tonn) you had in whatever vintage automobile you piloted that first time. Now it’s time […] The post QOTD: What Vehicle was the First Ride of Your Life? appeared first on The Truth About …
  5. The 2017 Buick LaCrosse Won A Comparison Test Conducted By Buick

    Native advertising is funny. Not because native advertising, the kind of marketing that appears as though it is the content of a specific publication aside from a disclaimer or two, shouldn’t exist. In a land of free speech, companies should be permitted to tell stories in just about any way they wish to do so. […] The post The 2017 Buick LaCrosse Won A Comparison Test Conducted By Buick appeared first on The Truth About C…
  6. Repair Costs on the Upswing After Declining for Two Years

    Nothing lasts forever, as Axl Rose once said. After flatlining for a couple of years, during which time car owners — on average — saw no increases in repair costs stemming from “check engine” lights, bills are headed back up. A study looking at average repair costs in 2016 has found that the price of discovering the […] The post Repair Costs on the Upswing After Declining for Two Years appeared first on The Truth About Cars…
  7. Ghosn Wants a Better Mitsubishi, Not a Merger With Nissan

    Carlos Ghosn, the CEO for both Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors, says a full merger between the two automakers is out of the question. Instead, he wants Mitsubishi to get its act together and strengthen the greater alliance, which also includes Renault. Nissan purchased a controlling stake in Mitsubishi for $2.3 billion in 2016 after the smaller automaker weathered […] The post Ghosn Wants a Better Mitsubishi, Not a Merger With Nissan appeared first on The Truth About Ca…
  8. A Weakness Left Hyundai Vehicles Exposed to Tech-savvy Thieves

    The cyber security firm Rapid7 recently recently informed the Hyundai Motor Company that its Blue Link smartphone application might be exposing its customers to an unsavory element — serving up another reminder that convenience frequently comes at a cost. Software vulnerabilities in the app allowed Blue Link-equipped vehicles to be unlocked and even started remotely, […] The post A Weakness Left Hyundai Vehicles Exposed to Tech-savvy Thieves appeared first on The Truth About C…
  9. Changes to the Audi A4 Lineup Mean Less Front-wheel Drive for 2018

    Audi’s increasingly mature A4 stands to see less front-wheel motivation in the coming model year. As the compact sedan’s clout and content grows, Audi plans to take one drivetrain configuration off the table come 2018. The move will mean that Quattro all-wheel drive will soon cover a larger slice of the lineup, but it could […] The post Changes to the Audi A4 Lineup Mean Less Front-wheel Drive for 2018 appeared first on The Truth About…
  10. The Thirst is Real: Nissan Rogue Sport Gets Worse Fuel Economy than Larger Rogue Sibling

    Less cargo capacity, less horsepower, a lower entry price and … worse fuel economy? That’s the reality for buyers of the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport, also known as the Nissan Qashqai in Canadian and overseas markets. The Environmental Protection Agency has released its thirstiness rating for the slightly smaller compact crossover, which was tossed into the […] The post The Thirst is Real: Nissan Rogue Sport Gets Worse Fuel Economy than Larger Rogue Sibling appeared first on …
