  1. Provide correct information

    I just read Zac Palmer's blog on the Mercedes steering trick.
    He keeps referring to toe out.
    I believe he is talking camber.

    Toe in/out is the front of the tire vs the rear of the tire. Wider at the front is toe out, narrower at the front is toe in.
    Camber is leaning in/out at the top, And yes, most race cars run negative camber (in at the top) to help the car corner more stable. When you lean on the front tire in a turn, especially on a banked track like in NASCAR, you gain camber, and you…

  3. Stop promoting dangerous activity

    Do you ever ask/care how some of the "spy photos" are acquired?
    The recent interior pictures of the Bronco were obtained dangerously by a vehicle cutting off the Bronco as it was on an exit ramp stopping just short of the traffic light. Blocked them in, and numerous people jump out, surrounded the vehicle and started to snap as many photos as they can. How dangerous to both the general public and the two persons in the Broncos?

  4. Why do some users get shadow banned yet people like 'The Car Expert' gets to post garbage on every article?

    My posts are instantly deleted yet The Car Expert posts nothing but garbage time and time again.

  5. Just a Thank You

    I was looking at KIA's new vehicle but w everything I read was convoluted with a bunch of overstated opinions. Reading your article, 2021 Kia Seltos First Drive | The Soul-ful CUV, was refreshing. Your writer got straight to the point. Most importantly, you gave me exactly what I needed....the differences between each model and their pricepoint. I am very appreciative that you don't write a bunch of fluff and give an honest review. Thanks a million!

  6. Re-post car care advice

    For example, in winter, do a series about how best to wash a car during the winter, including top-rated necessary equipment from foaming washers, to applicators, to drying cloths: basically, lessons in winter car care. I vaguely recall that you ran such a series - maybe it was a link to another site - a couple of winters ago but I allow as how my memory might be faulty.

  8. Improve articles’ accuracy

    Almost every Autoblog article seems to have inaccuracies these days. For example, I’ve seen numerous articles about transverse-layout FWD-based cars using ZF’s 8HP transmission.

    The 8HP is only compatible with longitudinal engines. Aisin-Warner (Toyota subsidiary) makes the 8-speed transmissions used in almost every FWD-based car with an 8 speed transmission that isn’t a Ford or GM product. That includes every single BMW product that’s based on the UKL or FAAR platform (all MINIs, 2-series Active Tourer, new 1-series (not available in US), X1/X2, and 2-series Gran Coupe). VW also uses the same transmission in the US-spec Arteon, Atlas, Tiguan, Jetta.…

  9. Like-Model Comparison When Ranking Vehicles, i.e. Full-Size with Full-Size

    I recently read an article by Jeremy Korzeniewski regarding pickup trucks likely to pass the 200,000 mile mark. As is the case these days, media covers only what is current, in this sense, meaning newer vehicles within a five-year span. Additionally, he included full-size trucks with mid-size trucks. This is like comparing apples with oranges. The two types of models have varying load capabilities regardless of manufacturer. The research should reflect a span of vehicles beyond the "five-year" span. Maintenance of any vehicle is the true basis of how long it will last. Personally, I ordered an F-150 Heritage in…

  10. Check your Information

    Jon Ramsey's information about the F-150 is dead wrong. The 209' truck hasn't existed in over a decade and come in all trims, not just the Lariat.

  11. Audio Level / Volume of podcast

    Hi There,
    I enjoy your podcast. My feedback is a simple one. The levels of your audio are well below other podcasts.

    I have tried this from iTunes and Spotify.

    Can we please review this and make adjustments?

  12. Tundra i-Force Max Article by Jon Ramsey

    That article is causing a misinformation storm, now making it's way to YouTube. Toyota nor any other source, has mentioned the offering of a manual transmission.

    The next Tundra is not even a 2020 model, yet he calls it a 2020 Tundra. That is the same truck still.

    Jonathon Ramsey has already been warned and needs to correct his misleading article.

    You guys are hurting your credibility by writing careless articles like these. Fix it ASAP!

  13. Counter Article

    Would you be interested in a counter article to 'Can Automaitc Car Washes Damage Your Car?'. We, at Mark VII, believe that using foam brushes is the only way to truly clean your car. And they do not cause damage. Thank you

  14. Your Uber Accident article is less than accurate.

    Your Uber Accident article is less than accurate as Uber does require drivers to carry Rideshare Insurance. They also offer Rideshare Insurance to those who didn't have it before it became a requirement.

    Until it became a requirement, Rideshare companies required all drivers to carry general auto insurance which is confirmed when they sign on. While it is a requirement in so.e states it is not a requirement in all states.

    One other point to be made is that because it is not a requirement in many states, not enough companies carrying Rideshare Insurance as yet, therefore, drivers are sheered…

  19. Correct the import articel for 25 yr/older cars, California EPA compliance needed

    All cars imported to California, EPA requires smog compliance for the year of manufacture no matter the of age the car, the 25 year does not exempt this. Even though there is no actual smog testing for it by the DMV.
    The compliance verification is done through only a couple of authorized companies.
    The cost of compliance can be as high as $10,000

  20. Suspected plagiarism

    Hi there, just wanted to bring to your attention an article that was recently posted on DriveTribe and received quite a bit of attention. However, there are more than a few profound similarities between the Drivetribe article and an article posted on Autoblog about a year ago. I’ll leave both links below, but it was quite alarming to see...

    Original article: https://www.autoblog.com/2018/11/16/irv-gordon-dies-volvo-p1800-mileage-record/?guccounter=1&gucereferrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3ctYXV0b2Jsb2ctY29tLmNkbi5hbXBwcm9qZWN0Lm9yZy92L3Mvd3d3LmF1dG9ibG9nLmNvbS9hbXAvMjAxOC8xMS8xNi9pcnYtZ29yZG9uLWRpZXMtdm9sdm8tcDE4MDAtbWlsZWFnZS1yZWNvcmQv&gucereferrersig=AQAAAIqgiF20d5JqfL3r2y41jpee5dRCq3hIlomipUuhnOFVHLlRRbiV0oiuHPLYeM-aYILKC4zxaWny7gHJiz25IJHNmYIB96FjZ--CYOqzn5z-KCS8smnmqm8T5vfK4c-SNfpjMTwwx7o3ktRBkjZ6C8fze5WGLTkVjZq
