The 2011 model year represents an all-new generation of the Nissan Quest. It’s a stylish people hauler that should spice up the competition among industry heavyweights like the Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, and Chrysler Town & Country.
It may also be popular with entertainment-seeking grown-ups. We’re not talking about concerts or sporting events, but rather the type of windowless entertainment facilities that require a trip to the ATM beforehand… and then another trip a few songs later. Yes, as you see to the left, an “Adult Entertainment” category is part of the Quest navigation system’s POI database. This functionality may, in fact, be included in other Nissan and/or Infiniti products – or GPS systems from other automakers – but this is the first time we’ve seen it anywhere. In any case, this proves that the 2011 Nissan Quest isn’t just a capable kid-hauler – it’s equally qualified for bachelor party duty.
Auto sales actually got better overall in 2010 . . . Americans bought about 11.5 million cars, up from 10.4 million in 2009. And some brands . . . like Buick, Cadillac, Infiniti, Ford, Hyundai, and Jeep had massive years. But some brands weren’t even CLOSE to that lucky. “Forbes” put together this list of the 10 worst-selling cars of the year . . . all of which saw their sales decrease between 30% and 60% from 2009. Here’s the list of the unfortunate 10 (more…)
A car accessories company just finished up a survey asking men and women what they secretly love and hate about the way the other gender handles themselves in a car. And basically, it can be summed up like this: Women like when men drive like MEN, as long as they don’t get TOO aggressive and dangerous . . . and men like when women bring food in the car.
Here are all the findings from the survey: Women love when male drivers know how to fix a flat tire or a broken-down car . . . know how to park in tight spaces . . . drive in reverse like a pro . . . have a good natural sense of direction . . . and drive like a MAN should drive on the freeway.
Women hate when male drivers tailgate other cars . . . drive too fast and dangerously . . . use a cell phone . . . start road raging . . . keep changing the radio station . . . or live up to the tired old stereotype and refuse to ask for directions.
Men love when female drivers remember to pack food and snacks for long trips . . . ask for directions when they’re lost . . . show some courtesy on the roads . . . avoid road rage . . . and talk to stay awake on night trips.
Men hate when female drivers take forever to maneuver in or out of parking spaces . . . put on makeup at red lights . . . are slow to drive when a light turns green . . . and talk to passengers instead of watching the road.
A traffic stop this morning provided Indianapolis metropolitan police with a clue as to why a 53-year-old driver was swerving over the center line on South Meridian Street. Cops say he was drunk — and watching a porno movie.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officer Mike Leeper said in a report, he noticed the driver of 2004 Dodge Intrepid “drifting left of center”, Leeper decided to pull him over near. After the car pulled aside, the driver, Gregory Green, Indianapolis, accidentally put it in reverse and Leeper had to yell several times for him to put it in park, according to the report.
The officer said when he approached Green’s car a pornographic movie was playing on a portable DVD in the front of the car.A blood alcohol test revealed Green had a .17 percent blood alcohol content, more than twice the limit legally allowed for drivers in Indiana. Green was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and operating a vehicle with a BAC over .15 percent.
The government just put out the results of a national survey on drunk driving and drug use, and one thing is clear: If you’re taking a road trip from Montana to Wisconsin, expect to see some SWERVING.
Seven of the ten states with the highest drunk driving rates are in the north-central part of the country: Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
The other three are all clustered in the Northeast: Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
–Wisconsin has the highest rate in the country . . . 23.7%, or about one out of four drivers, admit to driving drunk in the past year. North Dakota is second, at 22.4%.
–Utah had the lowest drunk driving rate, at 7.4%, and Mississippi had the second-lowest, at 8.7%.
–Texans are right in the middle at 12%.
Overall, 13.2% of people in the U.S. age 16 and older drove drunk in the past year. That’s actually down from the mid-2000s, when 14.6% had driven drunk. But even though the percentage is down, 13.2% still means about 30.6 million Americans are driving drunk. 32% of all traffic-related deaths, or about 12,000 total deaths, are the result of alcohol.
