The Tuner Cars, or Delinquent Road Hazards, are the secondary antagonists of the 2006 Disney/Pixar film Cars. They are a group of four cars that intentionally cause trouble on the highway: Boost (Purple Neon/Silver 1994 Mitsubishi Eclipse), DJ (Blue 2004 Scion xB), Wingo (Green and purple 2000 Nissan S15 Silvia), and Snot Rod (Orange 1970 Plymouth Barracuda).
The Tuner Cars catch Mack nodding off to sleep on the way to California. They amuse themselves by playing a prank on a drowsy Mack, by putting him to sleep with soothing music (Kenny G's "Songbird"), and nudging him onto the rumble strips along the shoulder. The resulting vibration causes Mack's trailer door to open and a sleeping McQueen to roll out of the trailer. When the chronically-sniffly Snot Rod sneezes, Mack is startled awake and the Tuner Cars accelerate away, leaving the still-sleeping McQueen behind out on the highway near Radiator Springs, thus making the Tuner Cars mostly responsible for McQueen's disappearance.
The gang ultimately gets their comeuppance during the end credits of the movie when they make the mistake of speeding in Radiator Springs, causing them to be apprehended by the Sheriff for reckless driving and destruction of property and remanded to the impound yard to do their time. It is then later revealed that Doc Hudson himself sentenced the Tuner Cars to messy roadwork of towing Bessie for their actions.
The Tuner Cars later appear in the short Tokyo Mater with the exception of Snot Rod.
In the Cars video game, two specific levels relating to the Tuner Cars are called "Delinquent Road Hazards" and "High Speed Heist".
The Tuner Cars are downloadable playable characters.
Out of the cars, only DJ appears in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure, where he plays songs for the guests as part of hosting his daily dance activity, DJ's Dance n Drive. This show and DJ himself would be relocated to Disney's Hollywood Studios as additional entertainment outside Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy.
- In Italy, Boost and DJ are voiced respectively by F1 racers Giancarlo Fisichella and Jarno Trulli, while Wingo is dubbed by 24 Hours of Le Mans racer Emanuele Pirro.
