31Honda To Expand Takata Air Bag Recall Nationwide

Takata insists that current recalls covering 8 million U.S. cars in high-humidity areas are enough

Under pressure from federal regulators, Honda is expanding a recall of driver's side air bags to all 50 states.

60Top Gear picks its 50 greatest cars from past 20 years

Our friends at Top Gear (the magazine, not the TV show) are currently celebrating the publication's twentieth birthday. In honor of that milestone, the BBC-owned book is naming what it thinks are the 50 greatest cars from the past 20 years. Now, this is TG's list, which means it's a bit more focused on European brands and models.

1The List goes racing on Speed tonight at 10PM EST/PST... honest!

Remember last Tuesday when we told you that a new episode of The List was going to air on Speed that night? Yeah, well... sorry about that. Scheduling snafu. But Autoblog's series is back on network television tonight after a week off for special programming.

AddL'automobile publishes own list of less polluting cars

One of France's most prestigious car magazines, l'Automobile, believes that considering CO2 as the only pollutant to adapt legislation is unfair. Hence the magazine editors came up their own list that includes all pollutants coming from the exhaust pipe. The list is actually pretty harsh on small displacement diesels, which are the ones that benefit from low-CO2 legislation, because not also have Diesel Particulate Filters installed. This lack is something the new Euro V rules are fixing for int

60Freep names 10 cars that will redefine the industry... like the Camaro

The Detroit Free Press laid out ten industry-redefining cars, and we're, well, a little perplexed. This is the definition, in the paper's own words: "a handful of new vehicles that debut over the next 12 months may shape the future of automakers around the world. They come in all shapes and sizes. Some break new ground for their manufacturers. Others aim to reassert companies' dominance in market segments they created."

27Forbes lists the Top 10 Fastest Fictional Cars

Employing research that they certainly did not get from AOL Autos, Forbes is at it again with a list of the Top 10 Fastest Fictional Cars. One of the things we find odd about the list is that there are a number of cars included that you can actually buy or make pretty easily, like James Bond's Aston Martin DBS or the General Lee. That, and a lot of cars for sale today are as fast or faster than some fictional ones on the list.

Add5 SUVs that get less than 16 MPG, cost more than $100 to fill up

There is just something about spending $100 versus spending one penny less that makes you think twice. I might not feel so bad about owning a low mileage SUV if a single fill up did not cost too much even if I had to fill up a lot more often. Psychologically, the worst SUV may not be the SUV with the lowest miles per gallon but the one with the biggest gas tank. So, which SUVs cost more than $100 to fill up right now?

AddWIRED's Top 10 fastest green cars (one goes just 30 mph?)

WIRED has compiled a list of fast green cars. The magazine looked for the fastest cars that ran on a type of green fuel or no fuel at all, like the Volvo Aria in the picture above. That car runs on gravity and won the 2005 extreme gravity race. Ethanol, steam, hydrogen, electric, solar, gravity, human power, wind - they're all in WIRED's list. Of course, Autoblog and AutoblogGreen have covered all of these great, green cars. Except for the Nuna4 solar car, which we somehow missed. Below is WIRED

30Mazda scrapping all vehicles aboard capsized Cougar Ace

Mazda just announced that it has decided to scrap all 4,703 vehicles that were aboard the Cougar Ace cargo vessel when it nearly capsized off the Aleutian Islands in Alaska back in late July. The shipping vessel sat listing to one side for over a month before it was towed to and repaired at a port in Oregon. During that time, the vehicles on board, comprised of the Mazda3 small car and CX-7 crossover, were tied down at severe angles. Mazda had previously told us it would inspect all the vehicle

43What are the Top 10 things you must have in your car?

What are those items that you always bring with you on an inaugural ride in a brand new car, or those things that you transport from one vehicle to the next that you can't live without? Automotoportal posted a list of the Top Things You Must Have in Your Car and for the most part we wholeheartedly disagree with the choices (the full list can be found after the jump). Lip balm? A Candy bar? Those hardly make the cut of must have items for motoring in our book.

30Dozen reasons to send car designers back to school

Bill Howard reviews a new vehicle each week for the website, TechnoRide. While most people envy this aspect of his job, he points out that driving so many vehicles exposes him to flaws and foibles that generate responses ranging from "Huh?" to "What were they thinking?" to "Stop the car, I want to get out."

11Forbes Best Pickups for 2006

While foreign manufacturers dominate the car and SUV vehicle segments, that quintessential American icon, the pickup truck, continues to be ruled by the domestic automakers. Forbes Dan Lienert wrote that Toyota Tundra engineers, while touring Texas Stadium during a Dallas Cowboys' football game, continued to be amazed how Americans loved their pickups even as personal transportation. We'll have to wait until next year after the new Tundra has debuted to see if Toyota's engineers have tapped the
