As car dudes and dudettes, we live and breathe this stuff. Sadly, we’re in the minority when it comes to the general population. The majority of people don’t have a freaking clue about their car, about other cars, or about anything other than reality television. Understanding that, it makes more sense that there are lots of lame and false automotive myths floating around that the uninformed believe with no basis in fact. You know the ones we’re talking about. American cars are far less reliable than imports, the Prius has no environmental impact, old cars are safer than new ones, etc.
In this sea of stupidity, we’re looking for the deepest trench of dumb. Whether it is a racing myth, a muscle car myth, a modern car myth, or anything in between, we’re looking for the lamest automotive myth. What is the rock bottom stupidest thing that people believe that isn’t remotely close to being the truth about cars?
What’s the lamest automotive myth?
