Official Jeep Twitter Account Gets Hacked

Hackers had a sense a humor

The official Twitter account for Jeep was hacked recently and defaced with various silly messages and images. The person who hacked the account changed the Jeep logo for Cadillac logo and replaced the page's background with what may be the ugliest McDonald's themed donk in existence.

The hacker or hackers posted to the account telling followers of the feed that Cadillac purchased Jeep because Jeep employees were caught taking pain pills in the bathroom. I'm sorry, but at least this hacker had a sense of humor. At some point in the feed the person who hacked the account said that Twitter users @LILINTERNET, @DFNTSC, and @GUHTI_were responsible.

It seems that Twitter responded by suspending the @GUHTI_twitter account. @LILINTERNET responded to the accusation stating that he/she wasn't involved in the hacking and blamed@GUHTI_ and wrote, "I DID HOWEVER LOL AND LOL AND LOL AND LOL AND LOL. THANK U." Internet gangsters, we haz them.

Oct 27 2014 8:06pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Confirming swirling rumors, Mazda has announced a new small crossover for next month’s 2014 Los Angeles show: the CX-3.  Presumably based on the hot, next-generation 2 subcompact car, the CX-3 will face down a raft of new tiny utelets when it reaches market, including the Chevrolet Trax, the Fiat 500X, the Jeep Renegade, and the Honda HR-V. This is the all-new Mazda 2. In Japan, it’s called the Demio, a name you probably know from tiny cars you never drove in Gran Turismo. Being based on t ...

NHTSA Investigating Chrysler for Slow Response on Ram Recalls

Oct 27 2014 2:10pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Agency Cites Slow Execution, Poor CommunicationChrysler and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) don’t exactly have what we’d describe as a warm-fuzzy relationship. You may remember Chrysler’s unusual challenge to NHTSA’s recall of Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty models by reiterating that the vehicles met applicable safety standards at the time they were built. Chrysler ultimately capitulated to the agency’s request and i ...

Report: Lincoln's $5B revival bid hinges upon new D6 chassis

Oct 27 2014 1:40pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Technology, Lincoln, Earnings/Financials, Luxury It's no secret that Lincoln has received short shrift from the Ford Motor Company for years, and former CEO Alan Mullay even wanted to kill the whole thing off when he ran things. Today, things appear to be trending in a different direction. Fresh investment has helped enable a sizable marketing push for its well-regarded MKC compact crossover, a couple of awards for the company and plant the s ...

Next-Gen Jeep Wrangler Could Have Aluminum Body

Oct 27 2014 1:34pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

Ford unleashed aluminum — lighter but pricier than steel — to the masses with the aluminum-bodied 2015 F-150 pickup truck, and Jeep could be close behind. Automotive News reports (subscription required) the Wrangler SUV will have an aluminum frame when Jeep redesigns it for 2017 or 2018, but it will retain the body-on-frame architecture that's loved by hardcore off-roaders. Related: What Jeep's Future Looks Like The combination means the next-gen Wrangler should preserve its go-a ...

Toyota continues its winning streak atop Consumer Reports’ annual reliability rankings. The company’s Toyota and Lexus brands top the survey, while its Scion brand is in the top ten. It’s the eighth year in a row that a Toyota brand has led the rankings. “Toyota has a strategy that emphasizes reliability over excitement,” says Jake Fisher, Consumer Reports’ head of auto testing. “They take a conservative approach to redesign and roll out new features slowly.

Report: Jeep Wrangler likely to get aluminum body, will stay in Toledo

Oct 27 2014 10:35am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: SUV, Plants/Manufacturing, Jeep Perhaps more than any other vehicle currently for sale in the United States, the Jeep Wrangler is viewed by purist fans as a vehicle that simply must maintain the status quo. In this case, that means a body-on-frame design, solid axles, a relatively large engine sitting up front and a removable top. It's always been that way, and it always will be. Maybe. According to the most recent reports, the next-generation Jeep ...
