If you’ve been using Mojo Motors to shop for a used car or truck, you probably have seen the sold email. You can see what it looks like below.
This email accomplishes a couple of things. It not only lets you know when cars you’re ‘Following’ or you’ve looked at are sold, but also fills you in on some details, namely, the total price drop and number of price drops. It also lets you report the car you bought by clicking the, “I bought it!” button. If you bought a car in one of these emails, here’s why you should let us know. [keep reading]
When you’re car shopping, you’ve got a couple of choices. You can buy from an independent dealer or you can buy from a franchise dealer. But what’s the difference? A few, actually. Here’s the lowdown on how to understand the differences between an independent dealer and a franchise dealer. [keep reading]
Things have changed quite a bit for the auto industry in the past 150 years or so. We’ve gone from 20 and 40mph vehicles to cars that go over 265mph and from dust jackets and motor goggles to voice activated climate control. Just look how far Bentley has come:
Instead of flipping the pages of a catalog with used cars for sale, shoppers are using Mojo Motors to ‘Follow’ their favorite cars, receive alerts when prices drop and see how many other people are ‘Following’ car they want.
We appreciate innovation and to survive over one hundred years, these 10 dealerships have adapted to the changing industry. They’ve jumped onto new ideas and continued to push forward. Case in point: some of the top 10 oldest dealerships in America according to NADA started out as blacksmiths, woodworkers or bicycle makers. They adapted to suit the needs of their customers, and that’s what we’re all about, too. [keep reading...]
Yesterday, we gave you the top 15 most American-made cars. Nonetheless, there are other ways to measure the American-ness of a car: the history of a brand, the look of a car, the feeling of the suspension, the roar of a true American V8.
Today, we bring you 15 cars that embody the American car manufacturing ideals and history like no others. They reflect the same excellence within diversity that makes this nation what it is. Consequently, they vary from SUVs to vans to sports cars. There is no hierarchy in this post. Each vehicle is different and unique, but they all feel as American as it gets, and are renown worldwide as just that–American. [keep reading]
Shopping for a used car? Here’s a tip: get yourself a set of American wheels and celebrate the 4th of July. More specifically, a used set of American wheels from the model years 2008 through 2012. Used cars from these years have dipped in price and are continuing to drop in price, especially in July and August (proof). That’s why they’re the cars you should be looking for and that’s why they’re the ones we ranked.
It is hard to define how American a car truly is, and the order of any ranking depends on this definition. Is it built in the U.S.? Uses only U.S. made parts? Or perhaps there are other ways to measure the American-ness of a car: the history of a brand, the look of a car, the feeling of the suspension or the roar of a true American V8. [keep reading]
In a recent poll on the Mojo Motors Facebook page, fans we’re asked, “What’s the most boring track used in the Sprint Cup Series?” There were over 800 responses with the majority of critiques falling on the road courses – Sonoma and Watkins Glen. Almost every track was called out and those included Darlington, Martinsville and even Bristol.
In some NASCAR circles, calling out those legendary racetracks is blasphemous, but calling out the road courses is a popular pastime amongst fans. The same goes for courses longer than 1.5 miles because massive gaps between the leader and rest of pack can sometimes form. Keep reading to see what made the list as the most boring NASCAR tracks.

There are just a couple of days left in the 33-day Peking to Paris Motor Challenge, also known as the Peking to Paris Rally, an endurance race that stretches 7,610 miles through China, Mongolia, Russia, Slovakia, the Ukraine, and Europe. The event began in 1907 and was run with the grand prize of a magnum of champagne. Italy’s Prince Borghese was the favorite and eventual winner with his 7-liter Itala, but second place went to quick-witted circus worker Charles Goddard in his Dutch Spyker.
Just a few of Goddard’s tactics included learning how to drive even as his car was being built, talking his way onto a ship to Beijing, begging some fuel off of Borghese at the starting line, and later driving 24 hours straight to catch up to the Prince.
The rally has continued ever since over nearly the exact same route. Italy even adopted red as its racing color (seen in the Ferrari Grand Prix cars) as a nod to the Itala’s red paint. [keep reading]
