    My dad told me not to cross my arms, not do left foot braking (trolled him with that one), and slamming the brakes would guarantee a flipped vehicle.

    1:21 what is this. I wanna know

    number 4 is bullshit as hell… especially when vw made their engines oil changes like 30 000…. who folowed their "rule" just destroyed engine… so no… manufacture probably dont know their cars

    Lmao ac does decrease gas mileage by a lot look up dyno a car using ac vs non ac it effects the power of the car the engines break hp is now dropped due to the ac strain on the belt and the alternator pulling more power… on lower horse power cars you will feel the difference right off the bat

    That Doug reference…They are actually quirks, not features 😀

    I heard that if you drive your car into a wall at 100 mp/h it wont drive anymore.. such a stupid myth

  10. JustThat Lad November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    I have to say, the “avoiding the first year model” isn’t all that much of a myth. From my experiences, first model year cars tend to have a hefty number of recalls, which next year models eliminate

    3:50 Higher octane fuels don't make more power unless you take advantage of the increased knock resistance by running a leaner AFR (or increasing boost pressure), which means retuning the ECU. Some vehicles can octane sense and then table shift so it will make more power on 93 than on 87 for example, but that is not universal and it is the leaner ratio and not the higher octane that accounts for the increase in power.

    Once my car wouldn't start, it was out of fuel, and it was a hot day, didn't put more fuel in, tried again later in the week when it was cold and it started.

    My guess is the tiny amount of fuel vaporized and then condensed back to liquid, not 100% sure though

    Y'now… we have to doubt the writer whenever the script goes all "facty" and "dumb calling".
    Using my power of free speech I devised legends for the video, read at your own leisure, also, prepare for text wall.

    #1 – Just don't use things that make sparckles easily when at the gas station.
    (even if the myth were true for cell phones fuel pumps would not disappear. In fact we don't know what authorities would do. Probably announce we should be more careful)
    #2 – We are not sure, keep doing it just in case.
    (Somebody should really look into it, if it's true it's a heck of a life hack. Anyways, fuel eficiency not changing over volume proves nothing as we are talking about quantities. If get more for the same price, will have more gas and money to burn. Simple. By the way, volume decreases with cold, ya know? – unless I am not up to date with this specific fluid's dynamics)
    #3 – Exactly
    #4 – Playing safe is… well… safe. Just don't change oil too often if you have more bills to pay. Trust the mannual and take the mechanic's advise with a pinch of salt.
    (some mechanics are shady, but changing oil often is not dumb, depending on the car's owner)
    #5 – SUVs are not safer… unless when being crashed on.
    (they trully aren't bullet proof, are harder to drive, often have windheads for owners and do barrel rolls more easily, but have you ever heard of inertia?
    #6 – Not really a myth, just educate people and engines will be fine.
    #7 – Guess this is more of a economical thing – costs less over time ya know? Just a hunch. Anyways, with how many recalls happening over years guess it is legit advice. Somebody, look into it, please.
    #8 – I've watched a video about the cockpit bubble stuff… anyways, drag doesn't matter for low speeds, but if you've passed 3rd, close the windows just to play it safe.

    That's all my free time will allow me to rant about. Hope you a great day 🙂

    blinker fluid. i never belived this one, but it doesent exist

  15. BlackEyed Panda November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    1st year models really tend to be fu** ups. Even today, just like the 1st new rangers or hilux, even the new mustang was really bad at collisions right?

  16. Drawn cat November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    AC does make your car slower and its bad for the fuel as well. The smaller the engine, the bigger the lost power is. Obviously a BMW M3 wont be restricted but a Fiat Panda will be even slower.

    One more misconception that every non-car guy/girl has is that a manual transmission is just too complex to work with… but in actuality, a sequential or a automatic transmission is the most complex of all from the inside and also for car guys/girls…
    There are many advantages of a manual and no disadvantages…
    BUT!!! in a automatic or a sequential transmission, there are only DISADVANTAGES!!!!

    3000 miles oil changes are not necessary indeed, but if you change it in 6-7000 miles, you might save yourself an expensive repair on the long run. Ask any BMW N47 or M57 owner.

  19. [TECHNOLOGIC] November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    My car needs an oil change every 30.000 km

    Thanks for including a car/van from kenya 😀

    Here's a myth!!! Blinker fluid and muffler bearings!!

  24. Jay350iV12 November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    First year models are still a risk! Last year I bought my mother a brand new B9 Audi A4 2,0tfsi DSG, just one month after it was released with this new body shape. In the first year we been through TWO complete transmission changes, a drivers door cable harness replacement, a gear selector replacement, and the rear brakes jammed on once as well. We should have been waiting until Audi sorts these failures out. It was all done under warranty but you are paying for a new A4 to drive the dealers Skoda Octavia backup car half the time…

    I know a lot of people saying that "Mazda still rust and will always rust"

    Well actually in most owners manuals has 2 different maintenance schedule for regular driving conditions and server driving conditions. For Regular driving conditions it’s every 6000 miles on conventional oil which is assuming you live in areas where it’s warm all seasons and you don’t drive it like you stole it. But live in areas were you experience harsh winters as well would automatically put u in the server driving schedule which shortens your maintenance schedule by half (3000) Specially if you drive it like you stole it all the time. Mainly because the “OIL” doesn’t last long in these driving conditions because it brake down a whole lot faster which is why people need read their owners manual.
    Also if your engine goes bad because you didn’t change your oil, on all new vehicles, you have voided the warranty on your engine.

    Dumb myth… Handbrake button, what's your opinion on it?

  28. MadProductionsink November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    One more myth that the Mythbusters busted was that cigarettes will light up petrol, a dropped cigarette doesn't have the temperature required to light up gasoline, but lighting one at a gas station is dangerous because you have to turn on the lighter and that can set fire to fuel vapors.

    Does running ac harm engine health in long run?

  31. Timur Productions November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    This is a reaction of a carguy seeing this thumbnail..Car guy:What do you mean i can't put a turbo in a Skyline?!?!

    Actually the first year redesign thing is no myth. If you buy a vehicle in the first year redesign and end up needing a new part you might have to wait a while to get it. That happened to my uncle who once bought a brand new truck in the first year of the new design. They had to special order the new part due to the simple fact parts for the brand new truck were in very short supply.

    Jet fuel cant melt steal beams

    Actually, Lexus overdrive delays shifting so you run at higher revs or it leaves it at the rev that produces the most power. But I don't think it's actually overdrive

  35. icenine135 November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    3k oil change is not a myth. It sounds like some of these lists are put together by people who have never worked in cars.

  36. Cory Hill November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    If you're gonna buy a new car just wait until November or December. Prices drop and by then they fix most of the little things that went wrong with it. I do this with dirtbikes because almost every year at least one manufacturer has some kind of problem that could possibly be fatal.

    Hondas can’t wheelie

  38. That Red Truck November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    Doug lol but yeah only belived the Windows and A/C ones lol

  39. H31995 November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    the AC one is bullshit it does use up a lot of fuel no matter how old the car is

  40. Federico Eiriz November 30, 2017 at 5:59 pm

    I prefet to think that this list of myths is just poorly written than cringe to the idea that people actually believe this stuff
