AAA study finds people's distrust of self-driving cars is increasing

In the wake of recent autonomous vehicle crashes including an Uber fully autonomous test car killing a woman pushing a bike, and a semi-autonomous Tesla Model X hitting a concrete divider, AAA conducted another study of the public's perception of such cars. It's a follow-up to a study conducted at the end of the past two years. According to the study, Americans distrust autonomous vehicles more than they did at the end of 2017.

Seriously, that guy's the new Selleck?

Wait, that's the new "Magnum P.I."? That guy? Really? I mean, he doesn't need to have a mustache. Or a Hawaiian shirt. Or really short shorts. But come on, there's nothing displayed by Jay Hernandez in the above "Magnum P.I." trailer that says "I have charisma and likability comparable to Tom Selleck." Now, is that even possible? Probably not, Tom Selleck is, well, Tom Selleck. But much as Chris Pine successfully captured Captain Kirk's bravado without doing a William Shatner impression, such a

Long braking distances and infotainment gremlins are top concerns

The Tesla Model 3 has finally been making its way into the eager hands of owners, and since Tesla hasn't been providing test vehicles to the press (as every other car manufacturer does), publications have been relying on those owners to lend or rent them their cars for evaluation purposes. We did just that for our Tesla Model 3 First Drive.

Could this be a hardcore, track-ready Z06?

The Chevy Corvette line is pretty well rounded at this point, starting with the plain old Stingray up to the beastly, hardcore ZR1, with the Grand Sport and Z06 filling in the gaps. But it looks like yet another Corvette niche could appear, as evidenced by the above spy shots. They show a Corvette Z06, but with a ZR1 wing and more. And by more, we mostly mean "orange."

Who knew your car window could double as a sharpening stone?

Life hacks are all the rage these days. Unfortunately, most of the tricks found across the web aren't actually very helpful. While using dental floss to cut a birthday cake might be a decent party trick in a pinch, it's probably not something you'll use very often.

They'll be shown at Georgia's SoWo: The European Experience car show

The Wörthersee VW meet in Europe may be the biggest and most famous, but it's far from the only one.

He says it reminds him of the 919 Hybrid race car

Porsche continues to make progress in developing its Mission E electric sports sedan, and apparently it's made enough of them to let former F1 driver and recent Porsche 919 Hybrid endurance car driver Mark Webber take a turn behind the wheel. The company got his test drive on video, along with his impressions. He seems quite pleased.

A turbocharged competitor to the all-wheel-drive, seven-passenger throne

The brand-new 2019 Subaru Ascent could very well be called the Mulligan. You may have heard the term used by amateur golfers as a sort of do-over for an egregiously bad first shot. But in the case of the Ascent, Subaru's largest-ever vehicle, it means that the Japanese automaker gets one more chance to build a successful three-row crossover for America.

Is this when we start hearing about fun Fords for everyone but us?

Now that Ford's hacking its U.S. car lineup down to the Mustang and the not-exactly-a-car Focus Active, we'll spend awhile getting to read about hot cars for other markets. First up: Motoring predicts that Ford is finally preparing a Fiesta RS. We've had four years of rumors about the super-hot hatch with nothing to show — or we could cite 14 years of hankering if we go back to the 2004 Fiesta RS concept. Motoring believes this time's for real because when it asked Ford Performance Europe

Hyundai looks to rattle the Civic Si and VW GTI

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster is a revitalized version of a type of car many mainstream automakers are slowly giving up on entirely: the affordable sports car. Rivals like the Honda Civic Si and Volkswagen GTI spring to mind but, generally speaking, car companies crank out more and more SUVs and crossovers while this once thriving segment dwindles in numbers. That's too bad, because it takes only a few minutes behind the wheel to realize the crossover and SUV crowd are missing out on a lot of drivin

Here’s how to choose the right vehicle that’ll fit you right.

Don't be the guy in the image above. If you're just plain tall, or have really long legs, we feel your pain – and you should be driving a car that fits you right. A few Autoblog editors fall into the long camp, and despite vehicles designed for Americans generally being generous with interior room, it's not always easy to find a car that'll work without contortion. No one wants their knees digging into the underside of the dash just to reach the wheel, or their head brushing the headliner
