IIHS Denounces Concept of Total Safety From Autonomous Cars

When the United States began passing legislation allowing automakers to begin testing self-driving vehicles on public roads, it was framed almost entirely as a safety issue.

Having enacted a similar […] The post IIHS Denounces Concept of Total Safety From Autonomous Cars appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Bentley Slashes Jobs, Predictably Delays First EV

Bentley Motors plans to quash roughly a quarter of its workforce. Not long ago, following a profitable 2019, CEO Adrian Hallmark said that the brand was on track to have a stellar 2020.

Unkonventionell: Eastern Spirit Garage’s BMW R80

Eastern Spirit Garage is probably Poland’s premier custom workshop. But they focus on quality over quantity, with fewer than a dozen builds over the last seven years. Shop boss Sylwester has picked up the pace a little recently, though. Three months ago he revealed an amazing XS650 bobber, and he’s now just thrown the wraps off this most unconventional BMW R80. It’s not your typical R-series custom, and despite the sleek finish and perfect stance, Sylwester admits that it was a struggle. “...

Rare Rides: The Unfortunate 1998 Infiniti Q45

We’ve spilled a lot of digital ink on Infiniti lately, primarily due to the grim announcement that the brand will become “Nissan-plus” in the coming years.

That got me thinking about one such dud […] The post Rare Rides: The Unfortunate 1998 Infiniti Q45 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ford Follows GM’s Financing Lead, but Not Entirely

We told you earlier this week how the month of June brought changes to General Motors’ pandemic-era financing offers. No longer is the automaker tempting buyers with zero-percent, 84-month loans on nearly everything in its lineup. Over at Ford, it seems the same strategy is underway… with one very notable exception.

Speaking of Fleet Sales… There’s Another Nissan Altima Hood Recall

The previous-generation Nissan Altima gained an unfavorable reputation as a rental lot darling (ask Corey about his Midwest comfort cruise), but another issue plagued the model: Hoods not staying shut when they’re supposed to.

No single company touted this more than Nissan, though it was hardly alone. The coronavirus […] The post They Wanted Fewer Fleet Sales, and They Got It appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
