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. Volvo uses the Aisin 8-speed in every model, PSA Groupe (Peugeot, Citroen, DS, Opel, Vauxhall) does too.
Another example of inaccuracies is the recent article about the future Mercedes SL. In that article Autoblog claimed many inaccuracies about engines such as claiming the 3.0L I-6 is twin-turbocharged when it’s not, or claiming that engine is used in the C43 AMG, which it’s not.
There’s a lot of little things like that which make me question the accuracy of Autoblog articles.
