  • More Models and Soon: Daimler Promises to Amp-up its Electric Vehicle Program
    After a Wednesday announcement stating it had failed to cut fleet emissions for the first time since 2007, Daimler has promised to expand its electric vehicle program and shorten the timeline. However, the automaker isn’t willing to shoulder all the blame for not being green enough. Consumer trends have shifted strongly toward larger, less efficient crossovers […]

  • At the End of Every Rainbow… Aerostar
    This photo could only be better if there were a leprechaun pouring Skittles on the road, like a corn syrup carpet. The post At the End of Every Rainbow… Aerostar appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

  • Potential FJ Cruiser Replacement Teased for New York
    Four words. That’s the extent of the details dropped by Toyota today, along with a picture that displays not quite an entire wheel. Perhaps the automaker should take a page from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and release 397 feature-length films about each of the mystery vehicle’s components. The four words and one picture depict the upcoming […]

  • The Numbers Are In: Volkswagen Butchered its ‘Fixed’ Diesel Engines
    Earlier this week, we reported on an influx of complaints from diesel owners who were required by law to permit Volkswagen to rectify their emission rigged engines. The consensus was that the company has not done a great job. If a veterinarian fixed a pet in the same manner that VW “fixed” these cars, you would probably put it […]

  • We’re Experiencing Some Technical Difficulties (UPDATE: Fixed)
    UPDATE Everything is good now. Comment away on your phones, dear friends. We’re having an issue with the site today where a bug is redirecting logged-in mobile users from TTAC’s main page to the forum. Currently, we don’t know when the issue will be fixed. In the meantime, we have a workaround: log out of your commenter account on […]

  • Alfa Romeo Simply Does Not Know What To Do Next
    What will Alfa Romeo’s next vehicle be? According to Autocar, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Alfa Romeo, and Alfa boss Reid Bigland have not yet made a decision about what the segment in which the next Alfa Romeo will compete.

  • ‘Deep Subprime’ Auto Loans are Becoming the New Normal
    A third of all subprime car loans are now being categorized into the ominous-sounding “deep subprime” group. The designation has become progressively more inclusive since America clawed its way out of the recession and now accounts for 32.5 percent of all high-risk loans — up from just 5.1 percent in 2010. While consumers have fallen behind on most subprime […]

  • Rare Rides: A Nissan Hardbody Flexes as Desert Runner
    There’s a certain allure to a limited-run special edition that goes beyond “Special Edition” badging and discounted heated seats. Automakers give these ordinary vehicles a new angle (often at the end of the model cycle) to boost sales and margins by a few units and pesos. Down the line, these special vehicles become footnotes over which the ICE can […]

  • Mercedes-Benz Sticks That AMG Badge On E’rything, AMG Division Surges In America
    Mercedes-Benz USA’s AMG division now markets 34 different models. Added to the list of the outlandish vehicles, the likes of which made AMG famous in the first place, are a bevy of new, entry AMG models; AMG 43s that were initially badged as “AMG Sports” but now receive the badge treatment due the genuine article. With the surge […]

  • Adventures in Parts-bin Engineering: The Saturn Vue Transmission Fluid Change
    Last week, I noticed a new stain on the driveway in the spot where my wife parks our Saturn Vue Hybrid. A quick sniff test revealed it to be automatic transmission fluid and an inspection of the Vue showed a leak at the transmission pan gasket. The car has just crossed the 100,000 mile mark […]
