When enough people believe the wrong information, it can feel like the truth. Imagine hearing a myth over and over again. You may not know where it came from, and there might be no logical explanation, but you feel like you should believe it because so many others believe it. There’s nothing wrong with being safe, right?
However, myths can stop you from getting the most of your purchase–especially if you’re buying an expensive item. When it comes to cars, there are several brands and configurations out on the market. If you’re a cautious buyer, you may ask around for some advice from other people. And some of those may be myths that could lead you to the wrong car.
There are myths surrounding every aspect of cars, from the effect of the fuel to the engine, to the way you drive your vehicle. Some of these myths can also cost you a lot, especially if you think your vehicle’s warranty is void, or if you think you need to do some repairs when you really shouldn’t.

What you need is science and information that is backed by experts. This infographic discusses 10 car myths that people used to follow blindly, and why you should stop believing them.
