The surprising and frustrating things I have learned so far working at AAA The surprising and frustrating things I have learned so far working at AAA

I changed jobs. No more work in finance for me. Wanting stability and the ability to grow with a company I went to the Automobile Club of Southern California, AAA. It’s been about 3 months since I started and I like it. Great pay, great benefits, 401k etc. I work in the emergency roadside department. As I have noticed…

Forgotten Cars: Mitsubishi Endeavor  Forgotten Cars: Mitsubishi Endeavor 

Every once in awhile mediocrity comes along on 4 wheels and tries to capture buyers. That was the Endeavor. Conceived under Mitsubishi’s “Project America” program that was supposed to bring vehicles to market specifically for North America, it was produced from ‘03-’11, a surprising run.

The saga of buying my 2018 Hyundai Sonata The saga of buying my 2018 Hyundai Sonata

So I bought a Sonata. Brand new. And surprisingly I don’t regret it. And boy did it drain me. Mentally and physically. Its a tale that involves cars I was coming in on being sold, the frustration and trade in of the Sonic, a rival Hyundai dealer trying to trick me into signing the car to keep me from leaving, missing…

Forgotten Cars: Nissan Altima Hybrid Forgotten Cars: Nissan Altima Hybrid

Remember when Nissan developed a Altima Hybrid using Toyota tech and then it just disappeared? Not many people do because it sold poorly. The Altima Hybrid was based on the 4th gen Altima and was introduced in ‘07 at the Orange County Auto Show (because of course they would introduce it in the OC).

Because of that minor accident, the dealer is asking …

Can someone tell me what this is? Can someone tell me what this is?

With our close proximity to Mexico, we get to see some interesting models here in Southern California. The other day for instance, I saw something called a Honda City, which looked to be a sedan version of a Fit. But from my research it looks like its either a tad smaller than the Fit or inbetween the Fit and Civic.

Genesis G70 is getting a manual (officially) for the US. Genesis G70 is getting a manual (officially) for the US.

Car & Driver is reporting that the ‘19 Genesis G70 will be getting a manual in the US thanks to the release of EPA ratings for the car. The thing is you will only be able to get it with the 252 horse 2.0 liter engine on the G70 2.0T. The fuel economy for the G70 2.0T with rwd and the auto trans is 22/30/25 combined.…

Here's another bad auto loan for you guys (and the last one) Here's another bad auto loan for you guys (and the last one)

Ok here’s the last one for you guys since I’m going to be changing jobs I wont really get to see how broke people are anymore. Here we have a 27 year old girl making about $5500 a month (gross). Pulled up in a weird yellow Lexus RC350 F Sport that I didn’t even know came in that color. Now its loaded. Her report puts…

I Just had a 2018 BMW 5 Series for a week I Just had a 2018 BMW 5 Series for a week

It was good. Better than I thought it would be considering how the previous gen was, but at the same time it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be either.

Bruh Bruh

Kylie Jenner just got a fucking LaFerrari from Travis Scott. Not only am I mad and jealous because she doesn’t deserve this, but dude is stupid af. He buys a car that’s pretty much 2 million dollars and his own net worth is estimated to be 8 million. He bought a car that’s 25% of his net worth for a girl that’s worth…

I really hate car rental companies I really hate car rental companies

Boy do they make it difficult for you if you are a local renter for some reason. The following is a dumbass list of whats required if you’re a local renter from a few rental companies. I had to go through this with them( and just ended up with a Turo rental) last weekend. One of the main things I hated was the fact…

Someone caught the 2019 Focus uncovered Someone caught the 2019 Focus uncovered

Motor Trend has a pic via an auto site from Hungary called Vezess of the ‘19 Focus uncovered during a shoot. A reader captured the shot. It looks good. A little too Hyundai-ish in the rear tail lights though. Hopefully a next gen ST/RS were developed alongside.

CarsAddiction has the full story. But basically there’s a random abondonded Subaru dealer with a showroom full of 90's Subuaru’s and weirdly all of them are white. There’s the above pictured XT Turbo, a couple of Justy’s, Impreza sedans and wagons etc. Apparently the dealer was abonded after another nearby dealer…

Forgotten Cars: Lincoln Mark LT Forgotten Cars: Lincoln Mark LT

How do you follow up a failure? With another one. That’s what the Lincoln Mark LT was. Essentially a successor to the failed luxury truck but not a truck Blackwood, the Mark LT was nothing but an F-150 with Lincoln trimmings.
