    So I'm going to buy a car this year. Given that I love the TF Movies so much, I want to give the car a name. I want the name to be original, not a name of one of the TF Franchise characters. He is an Autobot. The car will either a Dodge Caliber or an Opel Astra, it depends. Maybe you can help me to work out a name for the 2 cars.

    Thank you in advance

    -Diglash
    -Swifter

    Hmm... Smoovedrift or Swifter... both names sound like good, original TF names for cars.

    Those kind of all sound like cleaning products, no offense.

    Try thinking of car parts or racing terms. Ie; camshaft, wheeljack, drift etc...

    The only name I can think of for either car is Snorlax, but that's the wrong fandom. Maybe Breakdown for the Caliber, or Overcharge for the Astra?

    Do not get a Dodge Caliber if you want to be able to see out the rear windshield. Had 1 as a rental and it was one of the most terrible vehicles I have ever driven. And it was the SXT trim (midlevel) too.

    Anyways, when you do get your vehicle:
    As much as I love TFs all cars should be named after women, so pick your favorite female TF or use Slipstream (female Screamer from Animated).

    I shall call you (insert name here).

    I have always named my cars. Therefore, I can empathize with your desire to attach a suitable moniker to your future purchase. However, I have found it best not to rush the matter. I usually find that leaving the question open in my mind allows me to sub-consciously sort through the possibilities until I find one that fits the subject just right. So I suggest you relax and let it come to you. Just my two cents worth.

    Good luck!
