    Car commercials are the worst

    Ugh, definitely geared towards the "non car enthusiasts".

    Just watched a KIA commercial and when they showed the Stinger all they said about it was it had “blind-spot detection"...
    thats it?
    A great car and all they said was it had blind spot detection...

    That's all 99.9% of the morons out there want.

    God forbid they would have to keep track of what is in front of them AND behind them.

    Re: Car commercials are the worst

    I hate the recent Toyota Corolla commercial where the car enthusiastically goes through a tunnel of horrors car wash. I have to change the channel when it comes on. I think it just recently went off the air since I haven’t seen it lately. Thank God!
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    Nothing like getting behind the wheel of a new car with Road Departure Mitigation and Lane Keeping Assist turned on. The first time it starts to steer on its own, you're like ... ### is going on here ?

    Gotta have a safe guard for those that find answering a text WAY more important than actually hurling a two ton piece of steel, metal, and glass down the road amongst others while paying attention......

    Re: Car commercials are the worst

    I remember that one.

    Right before they bastardized Bob Segar's "Like a Rock" for the next 20 years.

    (With royalties, of course) but nonetheless......

    Since defensive driving doesn't always work against the texters, maybe one of these would ?

    Wish I had that ride instead of this one when a 21 year old hit me at 60mph while texting as traffic was stopped for a school bus.

    Re: Car commercials are the worst

    Some contain teachable moments.

    Things like: “Gift-horse”; and
    Beige Charger comes to mind.
