The automotive world is full of facts and figures, and wherever there are hard facts there are myths. They spread mouth to mouth at car shows and in forum posts taken as fact on the internet. You checked your sources and know the truth, but you keep hearing that myth. Tell us about it.
One of the top myths that came to mind for us was regarding the IMS bearing in all Porsches of a certain era. Except it wasn’t all cars, it was a select number. At some point the message changed from “some Porsche cars had a bearing that would possibly fail” to “all Porsches built between 1997 and 2008 will have IMS bearing troubles.”
Help set the record straight on your favorite (or should we say least favorite) myth by posting it below. If you aren’t sure, post it anyway and maybe another poster has the answer. We’ll highlight our favorites next week with an Answer of the Week article.
