I went through five cars in five years

According to the all-knowing Google, the average time a person will own a single car is 6 years. I find that a little odd, because I’ve actually gone through 5 cars – in a time frame of 5 years. Don’t quote me on the math, but I believe that comes out to 1 car a year. There will be no education or enlightenment provided in this blog post, just pure entertainment (hopefully). Enter the mind of a 17 year old!

My first car when I was a junior in high school was a 2005 Lexus IS300, black on black, which I named Rex. I was 17, and I’ll be honest, my reasons for wanting this car were not very good. There were two main reasons why I chose the Lexus IS300 over any other car, and they are two very bad reasons.

1. The shift knob on an automatic IS300 looked very similar to those in the manual Ferrari’s.

2. You were able to have just your fog lights on, which were a very distinct and awesome yellow.

You’re reading this and shaking your head… it’s cool… so am I. [keep reading]

How to write used car descriptions

Used Toyota Highlander Image Mojo Motors BlogWith thousands of cars listed on our website, Mojo Motors has access to just as many used car and truck descriptions. These hand-crafted descriptions are the works of not writers or poets, but rather, car dealers. There’s nothing wrong with this, it’s just that car dealers aren’t known for their writing chops.

Their highly systematized approach to writing about their cars listed for sale often highlight key features in vehicles like front and rear cup holders. They also use ‘then’ and ‘than’ incorrectly on a semi-regular-to-constant basis. Ultimately, there’s something to be learned in all of this and that’s how to write and not write used car descriptions. Keep reading as we’ve compiled some of our favorite examples below.

10 New Year’s Resolutions for Drivers

  1. Buy a car or truck that isn’t silver or white. Show off your personality, be a little different!
  2. Don’t talk on the phone or send texts while you drive. Avoid eating too, unless you like ketchup and special sauce stains all over your shirt.
  3. Even if you’ve only had a couple of drinks, find a designated driver. Thank them with a meal at Taco Bell or fast food joint of their choice.
  4. Slow down for people walking, running or cycling. Remember, you’re in an air conditioned vehicle- they’re outside and at the whim of mother nature. Slow down for construction workers too.
  5. If it’s snowing or raining outside and you have to drive somewhere…don’t. Seriously, no one knows how to drive in that stuff.
  6. When picking up food at a drive-through, avoid cone-ing the employees (even though it’s hilarious).
  7. Don’t argue with police officers about tickets because it will never end up working in your favor. Just hope they don’t show up at your court date.
  8. Clean, vacuum and wash your car every week or so. No one wants to ride in a car that smells like beef jerky, fried fish sandwiches and whatever else is festering under your seats.
  9. It’s not 1975 anymore. Change your oil every 5,000-8,000 miles or whenever your oil-life meter tells you.
  10. Drive less or carpool with friends to work /school/wherever. Sitting in a car with other people forces you to talk and it’s amazing what you can discover through conversation. You’ll save on gas too.

Have an awesome and safe 2012!
