How Did You Get Your Totally Rational Automotive Biases?

Either consciously or subconsciously, we all make mental notes after every interaction we’ve had with other vehicles on the road. Some drivers try to never end up side-by-side with a tractor-trailer, typically never pulling alongside a big rig unless there’s enough space to quickly blast past entirely. Others binge-watch dashcam crash complication videos and then think BMW drivers are on a mission to create as much carnage as possible.

How did you get your automotive biases? I know it sounds direct, but we’re all friends here. I won’t judge you if your intense loathing for Cadillac stems from the automaker providing the presidential limousine and you don’t acknowledge the federal government’s authority for whatever reason. However, I can’t make promises about anyone else in the comment section. They could report you to the Internal Revenue Service for tax evasion, but I’d never.

As for myself, I just can’t trust Nissan Altima drivers. I know that Nissan could be ending the production of the infamous sedan after 2025, but that won’t take them off our streets instantly. We also know new Altimas aren’t usually the problem. No one signs the lease, steps into a brand-new sedan and slams it into a packed restaurant like a woman did in Florida last August. That crash hospitalized nine people, but thankfully no one was killed. Most buyers are going to be getting an Altima used, like the drunk 17-year-old girl who crashed a Nissan sedan older than her into a police barracks last September.

Please don’t hesitate to share your biases in the comments down below. We’re all friends here, unless you’re behind the wheel of a Nissan Altima.
