Worst car review ever

In_Gear_556559a My friend Mike sent me Jeremy Clarkson's review of the new Honda Insight. I understand the article has been making the rounds lately, so you may have already seen it. For those of you who haven't, it's a must read.

Mike's favorite part was "It’s terrible. Biblically terrible. Possibly the worst new car money can buy. It’s the first car I’ve ever considered crashing into a tree, on purpose, so I didn’t have to drive it any more."

Me, I was rather partial to "The Honda’s petrol engine . . . makes a noise worse than someone else’s crying baby on an airliner. It’s worse than the sound of your parachute failing to open. Really, to get an idea of how awful it is, you’d have to sit a dog on a ham slicer."

But you have to read the whole thing to get the full (hilarious) effect.

I have seen a couple of episodes of Jeremy's BBC show, "Top Gear". He has that crazy sense of humor you see in this article. He gets to drive all kinds of cars that we can only dream of and they do all kinds of interesting experiments - like driving in a motor home race or seeing who can get to the top of a mountain first, an experienced climber or a sports car driving on all the switch backs in the mountain road. It is really entertaining!
The Detroit Free Press unfavorably reviewed the Honda Insight today. Their review wasn't quite as fun to read!


I love the suggestion that all the "weird-beards" should buy local when it comes to cars. Might save the American auto industry.
