The Used Cars We’d Buy Right Now for $10,000Ten grand. It’s not unusual to lust after a watch that goes for that much or more. As far as new cars go, however, 10 large could be anywhere from an impressive to acceptable down payment — indeed, it’s somewhere around 20 percent of the entire cost of some of our favorites. But a used car is a different story. A used car may be your first car or your city commuter; it may be your winter beater or a weekend toy.
This week at the Detroit Auto Show (or North American International Auto Show, for you pedants), the three category winners of the 2018 North American Car of the Year (or NACOTY…) were announced. The winners are the Honda Accord, Volvo XC60 and Lincoln Navigator.
Last week, Road & Track published a list of ten slow-selling cars that they love, noting that each inclusion is a massive bummer for enthusiasts like you and me. It’s a fantastic list, and a fantastic point. Gear Patrol has reviewed most on the list; you can read our reviews below, ordered from most sold (just over 13K) to least (407 total). Beyond the fact that some of these cars are designed to be low-volume sellers (looking at you, 911), there’s a silver lining here.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
