Tesla, Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, Land Rover among the least reliable brands – J.D. Power report

Lexus has regained the top-spot in the annual J.D. Power vehicle dependability survey, while Land Rover has found itself at the bottom of the list for the second year running. The study – which ranks car brands sold in the US based on the number of problems reported by customers for every 100 new vehicles sold over a 12-month period – found overall vehicle reliability was at an all-time high. The average manufacturer experienced 1.21 faults per car, down from 1.34 12 months ago.

2022 Lexus IS500 F Sport Performance revealed with 352kW V8, not for Australia

The 2022 Lexus IS500 F Sport Performance has been unveiled – however, the V8-powered sedan has been designed "exclusively for the [left-hand-drive] North American market" and won't come to Australia. Lexus has answered enthusiasts' calls since the demise of the IS F in 2014 for a high-performance V8 version of the brand's IS mid-size sedan – with the new model scoring a new 'F Sport Performance' designation, between the existing 'F Sport' and 'F' badges.

Lexus teases new F Sport model – UPDATE: Teased again, and it's an IS!

UPDATE, 22 February 2021: Lexus has teased its upcoming F Sport model once again, this time releasing a photo of a red IS sedan's rear window, now surrounded by black trim – all but confirming the mid-size sedan will be the vehicle to receive the carbon-fibre engine cover teased last week. All signs now point to a high-performance version of that car, either powered by a twin-turbocharged V6, or a naturally-aspirated V8.

Police stop motorcyclist with fake McLovin licence from the movie SuperBad

Check out the idiots we shared the road with last week. Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. Fortunately, police were able to stop these geniuses before they hurt themselves, a bystander, or another motorist. Clearly, the threat of speed cameras means nothing to these drivers. Only police intervention could stop them.
