  • Nissan Celebrates Dads in Lead-Up to Super Bowl XLIX through #withdad Campaign

    The College Driver News

    Super Bowl XLIX is around the corner and with it come the creative TV ads that we all crave. For the first time in nearly two decades, Nissan will make an appearance in the form of a TV ad.   Unlike typical Super Bowl teaser campaigns, Nissan will not tease the actual game day spot prior to airing during the Super Bowl. Without revealing the game day commercial, Nissan's teaser activity will align with the overarching theme of the campaign, which celebrates the journey that not only dads - but also moms and children - face in trying to make family a priority while striving to balance…

    The auto press usually focuses on new cars this time of year, but another reason the midwinter months can be exciting is from the used car perspective. Around this time of year, some of the cars that were brand new last year are starting to appear on used car lots. 2014 models have had their time in the spotlight, and now’s your chance to try to find one for a bargain. There likely won’t be a hugely significant price change, mind you, but you can (we hope) expect a barely year-old vehicle to be in decent shape. Even if these cars are still on new lots, you can expect the dealerships to…

  • Report: Jeep’s new 2015 Renegade costs $17,995

    admin
    27 Jan 2015 | 5:37 am
    The 2015 Jeep Renegade will apparently require $17,995 for those looking to pickup the brand’s new subcompact crossover. For that, you get a pretty basic two-wheel drive Renegade Sport. It’s so basic in fact that the entry-level stripped down model doesn’t even come with air conditioning, an amenity you’d often expect these days as standard even on the most basic models. Other exclusions from the standard options list include cruise control and heated power mirrors, which you’ll have to get in a package if you want air-con. On the opposite side of the spectrum,…
  • Report: BMW X3 and X4 M possible, M5 could get optional all-wheel drive

    AutoCar recently received some big news from BMW after speaking with BMW M’s chief, Frank van Meel. According to their finding, the Bavarian automaker might be in the works with full-fledged M versions of the X3 and the X4. But further more, van Meel hinted that the M5 might also gain all-wheel drive as an option, which follows up to several rumors surfacing in the past. Beginning with the X3 and the X4, the M version would most likely follow the way of their larger brethren, the X5 M and X6 M, which means more power, more performance, lots of chassis, suspension and steering tweaks,…

    Cadillac’s president, Johan de Nysschen, reportedly spoke at a press conference at the Washington Auto Show last week to share that we could expect to see more electrified cars in the near future in Cadillac’s lineup. This is interesting to hear mainly since de Nysschen was initially against Audi’s initiative for plug-in vehicles when he ran the Ingolstadt-based automaker. Now he’s at Cadillac, he seems to have changed his mind. According to him, Cadillac’s brand electrification would go perfectly in line General Motors’ overall commitment to EVs, with…

Click here for our original post on the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R. To continue the hype, Evo reports the GT350R recently lapped the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife in just seven minutes and 32 seconds, which is more than five seconds faster than the Camaro Z/28’s time of seven minutes and 37 seconds.

Well, I was present at the press conference where MTV executives presented the results and was left with much more to write about, from how the survey was conducted to the recommendations that were presented to both manufacturers and dealers about how to court millennial customers.

Jalopnik reports the bill, authored by Delegate Jeff Campbell of the 6th District, would have raised the limit to 85 mph, after which one could be charged with a Class One misdemeanor, lose their license for six months, pay a $2,500 fine, and spend up to a year in jail; other Class Ones in Virginia include sexual battery and animal cruelty.

    Everything is going fine until we reach 150 mph. And then, very suddenly, it’s not. Just sitting in the passenger seat of the Koenigsegg One:1 (we explain the silly name later) as it attacks a wet runway is, in terms of spiked adrenaline, somewhere between a solo sky dive and being chased by a bull while running in red pants. But as the man from the factory demonstrates, even in the sodden conditions we’ve found waiting for us in Sweden, the world’s fastest car can still be easily controlled. Or so it seemed. READ MORE ››

WSJ pulls no punches in describing the program, calling it nothing less than “a secret domestic intelligence-gathering program.” The program, established by the Drug Enforcement Agency in 2008, originated as a way of tracking down and seizing cars, money, and other assets involved in drug trafficking in areas…

    Don Sherman
    27 Jan 2015 | 7:26 am
    From the February 2015 issue of Car and Driver A decade or so ago, a team of German university scientists settled on 500 cubic centimeters as the ideal per-cylinder displacement for internal-combustion engines. A 500-cc cylinder with a stroke length larger than its bore diameter, these forgotten pioneers concluded, benefits the combustion process by minimizing the engine’s internal surface-to-volume ratio as the piston nears top dead center. Seeking to optimize power and fuel efficiency while reducing emissions, the three local powerhouses—BMW Group, Mercedes-Benz, and Volks­wagen…

    Did you know the Mercedes-Benz R-class is still around? Launched in early 2005, it didn’t come close to meeting its sales targets; in its best year, some 20,000 were made. By 2011, U.S. sales were down to just over 2000, and in early 2012, Mercedes-Benz yanked it from the U.S. market. All other global markets followed in 2013—except for China. In the Far East, the R-class still enjoys a loyal following. Daimler’s problem is that it desperately needs space in its North American assembly plant, where the R-class is currently built. “With the introduction of the new GLE coupe…

It is a highly regarded photography competition that has been held since 2010, in which professional (and amateurs) photographers shooting at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and different WEC races (and Le ...

    MUNICH — BMW has sold more than 2 million BMW 1 Series around the world in the last ten years, and now the Munich-based carmaker is updating the model.

    Across the country, fuel prices have dropped over the past week. The average price for a gallon of gasoline is lower than it was a week ago, as is the price for a gallon of diesel nationwide. A gallon of diesel was $2.933, a drop of $0.120 from last week, and $0.940 from last year, according to the United States Energy Information Administration. Meanwhile, a gallon of gasoline was $2.066, $0.073 less than it was a week ago, and $1.230 less than it was a year ago at this time. In diesel prices, the Rocky Mountain region saw the greatest decline, with a $0.143 drop, for a price of $2.884. Next…

Orders for long-lasting manufactured goods dropped sharply in December, dragged lower by a big decline in demand for commercial aircraft. Orders for durable goods fell 3.4 percent in December following a 2.1 percent decline in November, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday. The decline was led by a 55.5 percent plunge in the volatile category of commercial aircraft. There was also weakness in a number of areas, with demand for machinery, computer and primary metals all down. A key…

    Toyota’s Scion sub-brand has been struggling since the auto market crashed during the Great Recession.  Sales are about a quarter of their pre-recession peak, and the best-selling Scion model, the tC, had fewer sales (19,094) during 2013 than did the slowest-selling Toyota car model (Yaris, 21,342).  Members of the inaugural Scion buyer demographic class (those who were 22 years old in 2002) are now in their thirties with children, families, and better jobs, and don’t want a brash, quirky car.  Scion’s buyers have grown up, and the brand must grow up with them.  We spent…

    There are trips that one dreams about, and trips that one never forgets. My trip to Baja to test the new BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain T/A tires falls into the latter category. I never before had the opportunity to rub elbows with Baja off-road legends and drive and co-drive roughly 300 miles of the legendary Baja 1000 off-road course, and most likely I never will again. BFGoodrich was so confident in their new all-terrain radials that they flew me and several other journalists to Baja to put the new tires to the test in the environment they were developed in. The tires survived what we threw at…
  • Top Muscle: “Light Painting” the Muscle-Car Masterpieces

    I made an interesting discovery recently when I got my hands on a tome called “Top Muscle: The Rarest Cars from America’s Fastest Decade.” The team at Motorbooks had sent it to me for review and—unsurprisingly—I was expecting to learn a thing or two about rare muscle-cars when it arrived. Now, that did happen, but before I even opened it, I was first struck by the uncanny glow of the Daytona Yellow 1969 Douglass-Yenko Super Camaro on the front. The car had a nearly three-dimensional presence that brought its streamlined shape to life in a way you rarely see on the…

    Do you know where your car, truck, or SUV was made? While many folks overlook the fine print*, the place of origin has significant implications on the American economy. The auto industry is back on track, with 16.9 million new vehicles sold in America in 2014, up from a low point of 11.5 million in 2009. This resurgence has created over 400,000 new jobs over that timespan, at automotive manufacturers, suppliers, and dealerships. Last week’s Made Across America initiative was a truly unique experience. The organizers of the Washington DC Auto Show asked every automobile manufacturer…

    I spent the better part of three days at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit this past week. While I’ve been to NAIAS a number of times over the years, this was the first time I flew home knowing that I need to start doing things differently, ASAP. Although the price of gasoline may have plummeted, there’s still a mission (make that multiple missions) that must be accomplished. Gas will not stay this cheap forever. Ford kindly flew me in with a crowd of “Digital Influencers” and I lived happily in the big blue snowglobe with my new comrades.
  • How Low Will Gas Go?

    mpg-o-editor
    20 Dec 2014 | 6:24 am
    The recent drop in crude oil prices has driven the cost of gasoline down to remarkably low levels across America. It’s a whole new era, with our country suddenly awash in relatively cheap oil. This couldn’t come at a better time for many families, with all that newly liberated cash finding its way into the holiday gift budget. The piggy bank’s been fracked and we all need new jumbo flat screen TVs, the latest video games and fuzzy blankets. So how low will gas prices go? What’s really driving the price drop? Is it simply all of the oil flowing from the Bakken Shale or…

So when BF Goodrich asked if I might be interested in a hands-on demo of their their brand new All-Terrain T/A KO2s at Hunter Mountain on a tricked out Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I jumped on the opportunity. This was not an ordinary media junket. I didn’t need to get on a plane, dress up, or sit through a slide presentation. All I needed to do was gather up my cameras, drive Slambo up to…

    13 Nov 2014 | 5:29 am
    If you’ve never had the need to get rid of a junk car, count yourself lucky. Dumping a clunker can be a real hassle. The trick is to minimize your financial loss without spending a huge amount of time, effort and expense. I’ve had to unload more than a few junkers over the years and it’s never been fun. For most consumers, junking a car is a losing proposition. But for entrepreneurs, there’s plenty of money to be made. Think about all of the print, TV, and radio advertisements you’ve endured for WeBuyAnyCar, for example. Their pervasive jingle is a highly-effective earworm. If they…

    America's Best-Selling Cars and Truck are Built on Lies: The rise of fake engine noise Fake engine noise has become one of the auto industry’s dirty little secrets, with automakers from BMW to Volkswagen turning to a sound-boosting bag of tricks. Without them, today’s more fuel-efficient engines would sound far quieter and, automakers worry, seemingly less powerful, potentially pushing buyers away. Softer-sounding engines are actually a positive symbol of just how far engines and gas economy have progressed. But automakers say they resort to artifice because they understand a key…

    Being that Truck Lust theme had more to give than expected, it made sense that the Carspotters’ Challenge was to be truck-related. I could’ve just looked up a truck-heavy picture, but a scene used on an Internet music video that I saw a couple of years ago came back to me: the final chase scene from 1978’s cult classic The Driver. In it, we find two drivers-for-hire and their passengers: one drives a hot-rodded 1976 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, a great period getaway vehicle. The other? A 1973 Chevrolet C-10 pick-up truck -the type of rig that’s highly thought of and has been written…

    Form follows function. That pithy little slogan, coined by architect Louis Henry Sullivan over a century ago, sums up the hard core modernist approach to architecture and industrial design: the shape of a thing should be determined solely by what it is intended to do, with little or no allowance for ornamentation.  Sullivan's buildings were not nearly as austere as the slogan suggests, but other modernists took the concept all the way to its logical extreme. Adolf Loos, one of Sullivan's contemporaries, declared that all ornamentation--any ornamentation--is "immoral" and…

    We'll start this week on another pickup-themed note: the potential return of a smaller pickup in Ford's arsenal. Since the Ranger ceased production (at least in North America) the only non-full-sized pickups have been from GM and brethren, Toyota's Tacoma, and Nissan's Frontier. And even these aren't what anyone would consider "compact" or even in the range of "small" except by comparison. In my Truck Lust post I lamented the increasing size of pickups in general and the extinction of true compact pickups like the Ford Courier. Without looking up…

    Everyone who has done more than scratch the surface of Porsche’s history knows the name of Roger Penske. Following a relatively brief but highly successful time as a driver —his first race win was in an old Spyder- Penske became a team owner and manager. Over the course of his career he has been involved in everything from sports cars to F1 to Indy and NASCAR, often winning, and being totally dominant with the Porsche 917-30 in Can-Am racing. I first crossed paths with Penske in early 1970 at Daytona, where he had entered an AMC Javelin for Donohue (that one didn’t work out). Looking…

Victory in the 1966 24 hours of Le Mans should have gone to Ken Miles and Denny Hulme, driving the Ford GT40 Mk II that carried chassis number P/1015. Instead, controversial team orders requested that the first, second and third-place GT40s join ranks for a photo-op finish, a fateful decision that would instead hand Ford’s first victory at Le Mans to Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon in GT40 Mk II chassis P/1046.

Setting aside economic conditions, market trends and fluctuating collector car values, my kneejerk reaction has been to answer, “No!” That stance, however, has led to me keeping most of the ones I’ve collected over the years, some perhaps too long for their own good, and to the detriment of the others.

But some 17 years later, that decision has cost him his job. It seems that Nettles’ ticket was never properly processed so it never showed up on his driving record. That is until two years ago when the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (SCDMV) caught the oversight and helpfully recorded it. Nettles’ job as a power line worker requires him to drive for a living. With the addition of this bit of ancient…

Which is tough nuts for those trying to sell them — but could be really good news for you, if you’re thinking seriously about trying to buy one. Consider the Toyota Prius — the best-known (and best-selling) hybrid. Its base price is $24,200 and it can travel about 588 miles (combined city/highway) on 12 gallons of gas (full tank). As compared with the Toyota Camry sedan (non-hybrid version). With the four-cylinder engine, the base price is…

    27 Jan 2015 | 8:42 am
    Revealed at the Detroit auto show earlier this month, Ford's Shelby Mustang GT350R takes the all-new Ford Mustang, adds a 5.2 litre V8 engine with over 373kW, lightweight carbon-fibre wheels, a stripped out interior and race-spec suspension, brakes and aero gear. And the apparent result is a car potent enough to take down not only its domestic rivals like the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, but race-ready exotica like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

    Audi’s anticipated Q6 SUV has been visualised this week in a new pair of renderings ahead of what could be a 2016 or 2017 debut. Prototypes of the new model have yet to appear in front of TMR’s spy photographers, but reports suggest we can expect the new model to debut a design that will clearly position it as a rival to BMW’s hugely successful X6.

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Click here to view the embedded video. For a guy that died roughly two-and-a-half millennia ago, Aesop still holds a lot of clout in western civilization. His collection of fables serve up life lessons that are applicable even today, and they do so in a way that, while maybe less cheeky than the Wheel of Morality, is certainly less scattershot. The Tortoise and the Hare is a prime example of this timelessness, yet Mercedes-Benz – specifically, its recently-renamed Mercedes-AMG division – saw fit to tweak the classic reptile-v-rodent speed contest to…

The 12-turn, 3.56-mile track is made up of portions of the NASCAR tri-oval and an infield road course. Excitement at the 53rd Rolex 24 At Daytona went down to the wire.

Scott Dixon held off the challenge of last year’s winner, #5 Action Express Racing to win; #02 Chip Ganassi racing eventually winning out by 1.333…

  • Buy FIAT, or Buy Used?

    tgriffith
    27 Jan 2015 | 1:00 am
    “It’s an ugly little thing, isn’t it?” The FIAT 500L was stopped at a light, one car length ahead, in the lane next to us. My wife, an aficionado of sexy car design, thinks the standard 500 is somewhat cute, but finds the 500L to be a disproportioned beast not unlike a freakishly large baby hippopotamus. The 500L is a bit of a misnomer, since it’s supposed to be the “big” version of a tiny car. The result is a car that isn’t big but isn’t tiny and ended up caught somewhere in the middle. It’s really quite an unfortunate sight.

    My wife and I were heading out to an evening of salsa dancing and thought we’d take our two young girls with us to introduce them to something more culturally significant than Netflix TV shows. One child was eager to go and learn some Latin dancing, while the other threw a fit and declared, with a sly grin, that she would indeed be staying home. My keys were on a table near the front door, and when the time came to grab them, they were missing. There was no sign of them. My wife and I searched everywhere—in coat pockets, pants pockets, inside the car… all to no avail. The keys were…

    The auto press usually focuses on new cars this time of year, but another reason the midwinter months can be exciting is from the used car perspective. Around this time of year, some of the cars that were brand new last year are starting to appear on used car lots. 2014 models have had their time in the spotlight, and now’s your chance to try to find one for a bargain. There likely won’t be a hugely significant price change, mind you, but you can (we hope) expect a barely year-old vehicle to be in decent shape. Even if these cars are still on new lots, you can expect the dealerships to…
  • Jaguar’s SVR Performance Brand: Your New Favorite?

    There are performance brands, then there are the performance sub-brands of performance brands. It sounds confusing, but you know exactly what I mean. BMW has one. Audi has one. Mercedes-Benz has one. Cadillac has one. Even Lexus, the stalwart of comfort and luxury, has one. Jaguar has one too, which has been denoted with an R or R-S badge on the trunk, which signifies a step up in horsepower, acceleration, and handling. Future top-of-the-line Jaguars will wear a new SVR badge, which will likely grow into a full lineup of vehicles. Which is your favorite performance brand? Keep reading for a…

    I know, I know. We talk a lot about the fuel that powers our cars on these pages. We complain about high gas prices, we get cautiously excited about low prices, we wonder if governments should increase taxes on fossil fuels, and we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of alternative-fuel vehicles. The question always comes back to this: environmental effects. Fossil fuels are damaging to pump out of the earth, and they pollute the atmosphere when burned. Electric-powered cars don’t emit any gasses when driving, but the production of the electricity that charges them can be…

    Sure, it’s not really that bad as midlife crises go. I mean, yes, when I hit midlife I did switch jobs three times and got divorced, but that’s more the result of a constant and chronic whole-life crisis, not one of the midlife variety. No, my midlife crisis was automotive. My vehicular partners have all been Japanese and reliable and, literally, colorless (silver, beige, white, black, gray). I had owned my 2003 Mazda Protégé 5 for 10 long years. It was a fun, zippy, practical, economical car that could really do anything. But at 37 something snapped and I decided I needed more…

    Image Source Inspired by the space race and radical rocket designs of the time, 1950s automakers dreamt up a series of boundary-pushing “cars of the future.” Today, these prototypes often look amusingly retro-futuristic, like something out of classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon The Jetsons or original ’60s sci-fi hit Star Trek. At the time, though, they were sleek, cutting-edge and ultra-modern. These concept cars were sometimes presented as atomic energy-powered, engineless prototypes for, despite the now-obvious dangers, this was how designers envisaged the future of motoring.

    We all love our cars – they get us to and from work and from A to B, saving us from using that dreaded public transport that we all hate. But, purchasing a new car can be pretty expensive and we don’t all have that kind of money lying around. As a result a large number of us car lovers opt to purchase a used or pre-owned vehicle. However, there is large debate as to whether purchasing a used car is in fact beneficial at all. Whilst buying a brand new car will ensure you have the latest gizmos and gadgets, the value of the vehicle will drop significantly after the first year and they are…

    According to officials, the EU can’t register autos produced by the automaker from Tolyatti because of the lack of a single option. European Union suspended the sales of new Lada cars in member-states because of the new recent regulations on vehicles. Since 1 November 2014, to be registered in the EU all the new autos must be completed with a tire pressure sensor. None of the currently represented models produced by AvtoVAZ (Lada Kalina, Lada Granta, Lada Taiga 4×4) have this electronic part. “We have recently been facing problems with the registration of new cars.

This model, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Tour de France 64, was developed by the Tailor Made division of the company.

    McLaren went from being an auto manufacturer that offered one car, the F1, in the 1990a, to having a full-fledged model line up in 2015. As it stands, McLaren has 2 cars for sale: the “entry-level” 650S and the ludicrously fast P1 hypercar. As previously reported, McLaren is going to debut their new mid-engined Sports Series, which will fit below the 650S in terms of price and performance, at the New York Auto Show later this year. Now Autocar is reporting that McLaren is also planning to reveal another carbon-fiber car to bridge the gap between the 650S and the P1: the McLaren 675 LT.

    27 Jan 2015 | 8:50 am
    After seventeen years, 41,000 miles, two crashes, and one owner, it looks like Rowan Atkinson is preparing to part ways with his McLaren F1. There isn't an actual online listing of the car yet so we don't know the exact price tag but it's somewhere around 8 million pounds or 12 million dollars. That's a hefty tag for a car that was once wrapped around a tree, but because of the rarity of the F1 -- only 107 were ever produced and just 64 of them were actually street cars -- it's really no surprise. While it's hard to top a McLaren F1, Atkinson is a longtime car enthusiast so we're sure…

Cook shared a photo of his new Lamborghini Huracan's sitting side by side in his garage recently with the caption, "Sometimes when you can't decide you've just gotta get'em both". Must be nice. You can also spot his Ducati in the background and based on the fact he has two Huracan's, we're guessing he's probably got some other cars too. Maybe something more practical for a daily driver?

    With the start of a new year, I thought that it would be worth jumping ahead two decades into the future for a glimpse into your vehicular future. 2035 will be the culmination of the most incredible transformative period in the history of the automobile. Spanning the next twenty years, nothing will be the same about the cars we know and love; the only thing that will remain constant will be that we will still feel love for our motorized friends. Technology and the realities of human frailty will cause a convergence of technologies that will culminate in the car of 2035. The question is, when…

We are talking about Recycled Car Design Delivery (ReCarDeD), putting a team’s great design work on your own vehicle line until the entire automotive landscape looks the same. What once was startling and even groundbreaking, has now become a victim of in the best case stale; and in the worst case a sad parody of once brilliant design innovation.

    Heading out to the track, you don’t want to have low rolling resistance eco tires on your track toy. Likewise, you wouldn’t head out to do some mudding with high performance summer tires on your off-roader.

    A brand-new season of the World Rally Championship was launched last week in the frigid mountain passes of southern France. Steeped in history and glamour, the “Monte” is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious racing events in the world, with a reputation for drama and stunning natural beauty stretching all the way back to 1911. Speaking to press Thursday, former WRC champion Ari Vatanen described the rally as “like a princess, like the only girl of a rich family, somewhat spoiled, difficult.

    The first generation of the C-Class Coupe was originally developed as a last-minute afterthought following Mercedes-Benz’s decision to increase the size of the E-Class Coupe in its subsequent iterations. To be clearer, the current E-Class Coupe is a direct descendant of the CLK before it, which was initially conceived to slot between the C-Class and the E-Class as far as overall size goes. With that in mind, the latest E-Class Coupe is actually based on the same platform as the first C-Class Coupe, which appeared out of the blue when the sedan variant received it mid-cycle facelift in…

Even though Ford has not revealed official naming and information is severely limited, the brief description does say that a factory-built, road-racing Mustang will be available during the first quarter of 2016 with a starting price of $89,995, which is considerably lower than the $70,000 price that the Shelby GT350R (shown above) is expected to go for.The part…

Here are my thoughts on the pro/cons of the front hitch over hooks.

I have a 2" lift, I've already gone with the Monroe 646s (load levelers) for the rear because I don't wheel the jeep so I won't need the extra travel from the 643s. Which front struts do I need to keep the front from raking? 2. Does bilstein make a height adjustable shock for the front of the 06 wk that can be used with the 2" lift? 3.

    12 Dec 2014 | 4:13 pm
    Gloucestershire based Forge Motorsport has released details of its hand-finished range of universal intercoolers. This extensive selection of craftsman-built alloy components offers a vast choice of styles, sizes and end-tank designs, making it the perfect resource for any tuners, car-builders or race teams looking to manage heat on any forced-induction car. Forced induction (compression of inlet air) produces heat. Heat can reduce power thus negating some of the benefits of forced induction in the first place. By incorporating an intercooler between the compressor and the plenum chamber, one…

  • “WTF is going on with Lincoln?”

    Cameron
    22 Jan 2015 | 4:55 pm
    So started a holiday conversation over dinner at a friend’s house. I’m always the person expected to answer the automotive related questions and in this case a few people in the room knew that I had worked with folks at Lincoln in the past. “Cameron, WTF is going on with Lincoln?”  Before I even had a chance to answer, the entire table jumped in and started discussing the recent Lincoln advertising featuring Matthew McConaughey:       Lots of different opinions, some loved the ads, some thought they were stupid.  Some folks really love Matthew…
  • Until now, Cadillac has proven the adage: “Nothing hurts a bad product more than good advertising.”

    Cameron
    10 Dec 2013 | 12:39 pm
    This morning Cadillac introduced a new campaign from its new agency (Adweek 12/1013). The good news is that for the first time in a decade and a half, the product is as good or maybe better than the advertising.  The new ATS and CTS are getting rave reviews from the industry pundits and there seems to be broad agreement that finally, the Cadillac product is up to the job of moving the brand into the rarified air of Tier 1 luxury where Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Lexus and Audi compete. The Cadillac brand has been through a lot of marketing fits, starts and shifts over the last decade and a half.

  • What the auto industry can learn from North Face

    Cameron
    17 Nov 2013 | 4:07 pm
    Yesterday’s New York Times had an interesting article on North Face, the outdoor clothing company: North Face keeps walking the tightrope between exclusivity and the mass market. The question was: how is it that a brand like North Face maintains its perception as a premium or exclusive brand when it sells to just about everyone from kids and suburban moms to elite mountaineers, hikers, trekkers, runners, and skiers? If you read the article you’ll see that the President of the company actually says that they don’t pay much attention to analyzing who buys their products. They…

    Simon Sinek spoke at TED in September, 2009 and he offered this wisdom about leaders and powerful brands: “people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.” I was reminded of this in a conversation with a colleague in the automotive industry.  He asked me what I thought of his most recent advertising.  There was nothing decidedly wrong with the advertising but it fell into the trap of doing what Sinek called speaking from the outside-in.  In other words the advertising basically said we sell luxury cars that have these mildly interesting features. I told my colleague that I felt…

    Yesterday I attended the HG Motorsports Open House, an impressive tuning shop here in the Carmel Valley of San Diego, to check out what they were all about. The service many high-end Euros in the San Diego area, and the open house brought a lot of those cars (and their owners) out for a great gathering. HG Motorsports has an interesting history that dates back to the 1950s when Heinz Gietz (“HG”) was supporting a race team of Mercedes 300SL Gullwings and focusing on Mercedes Gullwing repairs and service.

    Looking back over the past year I realized I never posted pictures of the OEM 19×9 ET33 S5 wheels I ran for about a month – so this post is long overdue! I found these wheels while surfing Craigslist at a VERY attractive price (~$600) and was looking to change it up from my BBS CH wheels at the time, so I scooped these up along with a lightly used set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports to produce the setup pictured above. Fitting these was pretty simple – despite the wider wheels and more aggressive offset, the wheels bolted on with no fender rolling or modifications needed…
  • Valentine One versus Escort Passport Review

    10 Jan 2015 | 5:08 pm
    After owning both an Escort Passport 8500 and Valentine V1 simultaneously, I decided to sell the V1 in favor of the Escort – this is a personal preference that may not work for everyone, but I felt the 8500 was hands down a better detector for my needs. This surprised me quite a bit, because the V1 seems to have far more passionate fans and better reviews than the cheaper Passport models, so I expected to like the V1 one better and be writing this post about why it’s worth the extra money – but to me, it wasn’t, and then some. Here’s why: Valentine 1  The…

    I’ve been a fan of my STaSIS Ohlins SL “Challenge” coilovers for some time – they are a top of the line setup that rides nicely for a daily driver, yet excels at the track or canyon drives, too. The only major downside to these coilovers, besides cost, was that they are intended to be rebuilt every 2 years or 25,000 miles according to the manufacturer (1 year and 12k miles for Motorsports owners) due to certain components being built to race spec and thus needing replaced over time. STaSIS offered these rebuilds at a fairly affordable price of $500 for a full refresh,…

A report suggested that the performance division of the three-pointed star brand responsible for the Mercedes-AMG GT may be considering a hybrid supercar. If so, then we might be looking at the marque’s answer to the Porsche 918 and McLaren P1.According to Motor Trend, it was just less than a year ago when Tobias Moers denied point-blank if they were planning to make a hybrid powercar that would rival the Porsche 918. The answer was a straight “no” from the Mercedes-AMG CEO. However, as we have witnessed…

With a history dating back to the 90’s, the S8 derivative has always offered an excellent balance between luxury and performance. Fast forward to 2015 and Audi has ditched the previous-generation ‘D3′ S8’s 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 (which was based on the engine from the Lamborghini Gallardo) in favour of a direct-injection 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, similar to the one found in the Audi RS 6. Priced from $279,000 plus on-road costs, the Audi S8 actually offers relative…

    As much as possible, Audi would not use the Q1 badge for its new compact SUV, as the name is too close to its A1 minicar. But it is now. Audi -- which uses the Q badge for its SUV/crossovers like the Q3 compact, the Q5 midsize and the large Q7 -- had preferred to use the Q2 name, but it is held by Alfa Romeo. Sources privy with the German premium carmaker divulged to Automotive News Europe that Audi has approached Alfa’s parent, Fiat Chrysler, to get permission to use the Q2. Fiat Chrysler did not answer; a “yes” would have meant a “significant” payment coming…

    Replacing Brake Fluid Your regular mechanic will not add new liquid for the braking system in a routine checkup. That is why we need to maintain that part of ourselves. Low levels indicate that the braking pads are too thin and need to be changed. Ask a mechanic to be sure what is really going on. We shouldn’t use DOT5 products if our vehicle is designed for DOT3 or DOT4. Do not swap motor oil for braking liquid or any other combination. These oils are poisonous and that is why we should wash our hands immediately after working with them. Never just throw it in the thrash and instead find a…

When we learned his buddy was about to leave him high and dry – literally on the street – we had to do something. We crowdfunded $2140 to buy him his own vehicle – to sleep in.

    2017 will see a new 6 Series, which at the moment has a codename, being released. From the initial images the car looks spectacular. The car will also a lot lighter and will come across as a sportier model too when compared to the current six series. A change of image Upgrades to the next generation 6 Series will be so fierce that they will be designed to be within direct competition with Porsche. This would represent a major redesign for the current range. At the moment the Coupe, cabriolet and the Gran Coupe are more aligned to being grand tourers rather than being sporty. So why have BMW…

OEM (in all car part purchases) stands for original equipment manufacturer.  It simply means that the door was manufactured by exactly the same company as built your car.  If…

    Chancellor George Osborne has announced that fuel duty is to remain frozen until at least the end of the current parliament in May 2015, with the next planned rise delayed until at least September, according to the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR). Some motoring groups had predicted an early return of the fuel duty escalator, the government’s system for increasing costs by the level of inflation plus 1p per litre.  Had the escalator returned it would have led to almost immediate increases, with the government looking to take advantage of the recent fall in oil prices.

And it’s taken less than 15 years for the U-turn. Let me tell you now. If you own a diesel sell it now before everyone realises what’s about to happen. And you're…

  • Talk The Torque: Mitsubishi ASX XLS Diesel

    Dave Conole
    26 Jan 2015 | 11:47 pm
    Around a decade or so ago, Mitsubishi released, in Australia, the Lancer based Outlander. It very quickly morphed into a bigger, more stylish vehicle than the compact and edgy original, leaving Mitsubishi without a smallish SUV styled vehicle. Some years later, the Lancer based ASX was released (and shared with Citroen and Peugeot). It started off as a semi harpish angled, petrol engined only machine and in 2015 is a softened slightly, diesel optioned chariot. A Wheel Thing talks to the torquey diesel ASX AWD. Powersource. Oddly, that diesel is a 2.2L, rather than a possibly more logical…

However, in the typical car, this is the sort of area your tyres take up when they actually contact the road: roughly the size of a postcard. Of course, a fatter tyre will have more surface area contacting the ground – they don’t just look good. Those of you who fell asleep in high school science class when they talked about friction had better wake up and pay attention now.  Everything to do…

    20 Jan 2015 | 8:41 am
    In August last year, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO harvested a whooping $38 million in a public auction at Bonham’s Auction in Carmel, California. This is the most recent public bidding for such a lofty classic in ages, since most GTOs are traded in private with their selling price kept a secret. The $38-million sale became a world record in the arena of classic cars, despite rumors about another GTO secretly sold last year for $52 million, as its former owner keeps mum about the sale price. Another private sale in 2012 resulted in exchanging ownership of a GTO for $35 million. At any rate, the…

  • Why Leasing your Next BMW Makes Sense

    Dave Maiden
    26 Jan 2015 | 4:57 pm
    Have you ever paid off a new car? If you have a history of paying off a new car purchase and then, as they say, running it until the wheels fall off, it may make sense for you buy your new BMW. If, on the other hand, you normally trade a vehicle in after two or three years, it probably makes more sense to take advantage of BMW lease specials and not suffer the depreciation factor that goes with a new car purchase. When you lease, you are only paying on the difference between the cost of the car and what it is estimated to be worth at the end of the lease. This usually results in lower monthly…
  • The 2015 BMW 328i rises above the competition in the luxury sedan segment

    Christine Wolfe
    28 Oct 2014 | 3:37 pm
    Luxury, power and superior craftsmanship. The 2015 BMW 328i at Chapman BMW on Camelback is a standout in the luxury sedan market, deftly beating the Lexus IS 250, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-300 across the board. The 2015 BMW 328i, powered by a TwinTurbo engine that makes 255 lb-ft of torque at just 1250 rpm is also fuel efficient: It makes an estimated 35mpg on the highway, compared to the less-than-robust 27mpg the Mercedes achieves, or the 32-mpg of the Audi A4. And the Lexus IS 250? Its puny 185hp is no match for the BMW. Standard safety features on the BMW 328i include Xenon Adaptive…

    When the new BMW i3 models were delivered to Chapman BMW on Camelback, the plug-in electric vehicles were missing one thing: AM radio channels. BMW is the first manufacturer to discontinue the AM radio band in its i3 and i8 electric vehicles, which begs the question: Is free radio nearly extinct? The answer, for right now, is no. And to its credit, BMW has explained the loss of AM radio signals in the i3 and i8 as an interference problem with the vehicle’s electric motor. According to Kenn Sparks, BMW Manager of Business Communications, in a letter to the National Association of…
  • 2015 BMW X6 Restyled And Elegant

    4 Aug 2014 | 9:40 am
    When the X6 made its debut, it was the first fastback-styled SUV to the market, redefining the SUV landscape. This gives BMW SUVs the stylistic bite most commonly associated with the automaker’s sports cars. For 2015, the BMW X6 gets a massive upgrade, though it is still undeniably an X6, with its huge—and iconic—twin-kidney grille. The X6 receives a short, stubby and stylish rear end with elegantly creased design lines. You can find the 2015 BMW X6 at Chapman BMW on Camelback. To shave costs, BMW ensured the X6 and X5 share the same hood, grille and headlight assemblies along with…

This news went over well with Mitsubishi’s US dealers, who have been without a mid-size offering since the Galant departed at the end of 2012. Though despite the dealer enthusiasm, the Mitsubishi and Nissan joint-project seems to have ground to a halt, according to industry paper Automotive News.

    The Bugatti Veyron is nearing the end of its production run with only 8 being left to sell according to the last count just a short while ago. One of those final buyers has decided to embrace the car’s softer side by giving it a delicate pale pink and white color scheme.It’s not at all unusual for owners of supercars to trick them out in crazy paint jobs, but pale pink is a bit on the unique side for a Bugatti. Ordering it from the factory that way rather than deciding to change it up with a wrap after owning it for a brief while is also not the norm. Whoever bought this is…

    A vehicle’s slave cylinder is a part of the hydraulic clutch system located on the outside or inside of the transmission. It is a device which aids in clutch disengagement. When the driver presses in the clutch, the slave cylinder applies that pressure to the clutch master cylinder. This transfers power generated by the engine to the gearbox, and disengages that power when the pedal is pressed. If the pedal slips all the way to the floor and stays there, however, it indicates a problem with the slave cylinder.  Diagnosing Instructions: When the driver depress the clutch, hydraulic…

  • How to Avoid Car Accidents in Winter Conditions

    Author
    26 Jan 2015 | 8:35 am
    Driving conditions become worse during winter when the roads are covered with thick snow, making them slippery and hard to maneuver. Winter conditions also make the highways foggy and decrease visibility. Common Causes of Winter Car Accidents Rear-end collisions are common during winter because it’s difficult to stop quickly. Slippery roads make it extra hard to stop your vehicle especially when the distance between your car and that in front of you is minimal. Always keep a good distance from other vehicles, and be observant of driver signals. Car accidents in winter often involve sliding…

  • Ford’s Foray into the Performance Car Market

    Author
    23 Jan 2015 | 6:25 am
    Ford has provided the world with some of the best, most practical vehicles. But the company is leaning towards performance cars that will be released through 2020. The company has set up a global performance division that is composed of the Ford Racing, SVT team from the U.S., and the RS team from Europe. While it is still a secret which models will be released, the 1968 European Ford Focus RS will be sold as a performance vehicle. But why does Ford want to venture in the performance car market?

    Electronic gadgets are not the only things featured in the CES 2015 held in Las Vegas. There were concept cars, presented as well, but one vehicle may look like it is still in the works, but it is actually ready for the road.  Meet Elio. Elio is a three-wheel vehicle that was designed as an efficient transport, reportedly capable of running at 84 mpg on the highway. With not-too-shabby automotive features under the hood, there is little doubt it can deliver what it promises.

  • How you can make sure you always get a new car

    Editor
    19 Jan 2015 | 6:23 am
    Can you imagine a situation where every car you get is from now on is brand new? Where you never have to worry about having to make-do with a second rate used vehicle? This might sound too good to be true, but the reality is quite straightforward – make your next car a lease car. For many of us the closest experience to this may have been when hiring a car on a foreign holiday. Unlike these invariably worse-for-wear vehicles however, contract hire can see you driving away with a fantastic, brand new vehicle every time. The benefits don’t just stop there though, there’s a large number of…

    John Paul Strong
    26 Jan 2015 | 2:05 pm
      The New Year is refreshing in so many ways. You get to review your wins and losses from the previous year, start fresh with resolutions and in marketing you get to press the reset button for plans in the coming year. While technology continues to improve the way we think and judge the effects of marketing, there is still one simple premise that I follow:  K.I.S.S. – “Keep It Simple Stupid.” When I look at new dealers’ marketing plans it’s interesting to see the different areas that they are trying to target. There are always the core competencies of media,…

    Remember when you took a family vacation years ago and it was usually your mom who took time to pick out a picturesque postcard that showed where you were visiting? In fact, those “wish you were here” postcards were powerful with brilliant design for both layout and color. I’m pretty sure my grand-parents kept them on the refrigerator because they couldn’t miss them even in a hefty stack of mail. That is what the survey says when you are considering how the piece of mail will impact a direct contact campaign. In terms of “read, looked at or discarded”, postcards outperform other…

If a client is willing to make a longer-term commitment they deserve to get extra incentives.

    This is a test! The best way to make sure your Internet visuals are effective is to look at them on a small screen, like a smartphone as compared to your desktop monitor. Think about when the billboard company would bring you a new design for your big board down by the busy highway. Holding the design in your hand, it looked pretty good but if you really wanted to measure the effectiveness, you stuck it on the wall across the office. That gave you the perspective of how a driver would see it and made it easier to detect any flaws. In reviewing Home Page Graphics for a client recently I…

      I decided to blog on a local topic that still puzzles me as a resident in Birmingham, Alabama. While reading the Birmingham Business Journal over the weekend I saw this list of the largest manufacturers in the Birmingham area. With all the steel, coal, pipe and food/beverage companies it was surprising to see our two local automakers Honda and Mercedes in the top two positions. The reason for the surprise is I hear so little about these two companies and their manufacturing efforts in the local news. The fact that they account for 7,500 local employees should be something that is…

  • Why buying a diesel car might not be wise

    25 Jan 2015 | 3:36 pm
    Nowadays roughly half of all new cars registered in the UK run on diesel. Fleet and private buyers alike have been enticed by the prospect of better fuel economy, lower carbon dioxide emissions and healthier residual values. However, that popularity could be about to wane. Ironically, a widespread return to petrol engines or the adoption of electric-based technologies will likely be caused by politicians. That’s the exact same group of people who have supported diesel sales for so long by being obsessed solely with CO2 figures. Take London, for instance. Until recently, diesel cars that…
  • 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Midnight edition

    Like so many manufacturers, Chevrolet has resorted to a ‘black look’ for its latest limited-run model. The Silverado Midnight edition, which is based on the existing 1500 LT Z71 variant, gains a variety of suitably dark cosmetic tweaks. A requisite black finish is applied to the pick-up’s front grille, headlight bezels, side mouldings and bumpers. Those components are matched by a set of 18” alloy wheels shod with Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac all-terrain tyres. Also included on the extra specification list are rear parking sensors, a spray-in bedliner and heated power-adjustable door…
  • Lamborghini Huracán GT3 unveiled

    22 Jan 2015 | 11:43 am
    Ferruccio Lamborghini wasn’t an advocate of factory-supported motorsport, so the late founder of the firm that bears his name probably wouldn’t approve of the Huracán GT3. Developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Grasser Racing Team is due to run two examples of the new racer in the five-round 2015 Blancpain Endurance Series. The cost per car to privateers is €369,000 plus taxes (around £279,000 or US$420,000 at current exchange rates). Of course there are numerous differences compared to the road-going version. The most obvious are the dramatically widened wheel arches and an…

  • 2017 Ford GT unveiled

    19 Jan 2015 | 3:19 pm
    One of the undoubted stars at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit has been the all-new Ford GT. Rather than follow the unashamed retro styling themes of its predecessor, the 2017 model is ultra-modern. That dramatic change in design direction is most obvious when viewed from above, as the GT’s lightweight carbon fibre bodywork forms a teardrop shape which is both striking and aerodynamically efficient. Likewise, powertrain thinking has moved on considerably since the 2005 GT was launched with a supercharged 5.4 litre V8 mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. For…

Two tuned versions of each model lined up for a 1,000-meter sprint to see just who was the fastest. In the left lane was a Lamborghini Aventador Capristo Stage 1 with 730 horsepower. Opposite of that was the 997.2 Porsche 911 Turbo G-Force Stage 2 with 600 horsepower. Both have all-wheel drive, and both are straight-line monsters.

  • Locating Car Brake Fluid Leaks

    Justin Smith
    26 Jan 2015 | 4:01 am
    Brake fluid is an essential part of your car’s braking system. It is used to transfer the pressure from the footbrake into movement that in turn applies your car’s callipers to the disc brake. The first sign that you might have a leak within your brake fluid system is usually therefore indicated by the responsiveness of the footbrake pedal. If you start to notice that the pedal does not feel quite right, or that it is slightly spongy and taking longer to return to its normal position than usual, this is often the first sign that you have a problem. If the problem is particularly severe…
  • How to Change a Car’s Radiator

    Justin Smith
    23 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    Your car’s radiator keeps the engine at the correct working temperature by dissipating heat that is generated by the internal combustion process. The radiator circulates coolant throughout the engine block, where it becomes heated, before returning it to the radiator where it cools down with exposure to the atmosphere. If your radiator stops working properly, then this could lead to some severe problems with your engine over-heating and could even cause a fire under your bonnet. It is therefore imperative that you check out your radiator for problems the moment you think you are…

    Prevention is undoubtedly better than cure. Especially when it comes to issues of life and death such as drink-driving. Before the recent festive break Scottish authorities announced a new blood alcohol limit, allowing drivers a maximum of 50mg of alcohol in every 100ml of blood and bringing the country’s legislation in line with the limits of other EU member states. This means that even a single glass of wine or pint of beer could take a driver over the limit, which could potentially result in a ban or even a custodial sentence if they are caught in such a state by the police.

    23 Jan 2015 | 2:41 am
    A vehicle’s slave cylinder is a part of the hydraulic clutch system located on the outside or inside of the transmission. It is a device which aids in clutch disengagement. When the driver presses in the clutch, the slave cylinder applies that pressure to the clutch master cylinder. This transfers power generated by the engine to the gearbox, and disengages that power when the pedal is pressed. If the pedal slips all the way to the floor and stays there, however, it indicates a problem with the slave cylinder.  Diagnosing Instructions: When the driver depress the clutch, hydraulic…

  • Solid Rivet FAQ

    13 Jan 2015 | 6:37 am
    Solid rivets, sometimes called aircraft rivets, are a solid piece of metal with a large head on one side and a straight shaft. They are installed by sliding them in a hole slightly bigger than the shaft, then deforming the protruding shaft to 1 ½ times its size, so it is tight and cannot pull out. They differ from pop rivets in that they are solid, therefor stronger, and use a buck bar and pneumatic gun to install them instead.
  • Powder Coating FAQ

    12 Dec 2014 | 9:56 am
    Powder coating is a dry painting process that uses a fine powder with the consistency of powdered sugar, and an electrical charge to coat an object. Then the piece is baked in an oven at 400+ degrees Fahrenheit to make the powder melt and flow together. Once it is cooled and cured the powder coat has formed a solid plastic coating over the entire surface that is much more durable than regular paint.

However, it is becoming increasingly popular, as the ‘direct debit generation’ have become used to paying for things such as phone bills, gym memberships and insurance on a month-by-month basis.

As with any Land Rover, the off road capabilities are second to none.These days, they come fitted with low profile road tyres, which doesn’t make the Sport the best in snow, slush or icy conditions. A standard Sport comes with either 275/40R20 or 285/35R22 wheels and tyres, great for holding the road in warmer conditions, but for winter, those wide tyres struggle to hold the road.

    In today’s top 5, we’re taking a stab at picking last year’s best supermini. 2014 was a great year for this class, so we have our work cut out for us.

To be clearer, the current E-Class Coupe is a direct descendant of the CLK before it, which was initially conceived to slot between the C-Class and the E-Class as far as overall size goes. With that in mind, the latest E-Class Coupe is actually based on the same platform as the first C-Class Coupe, which appeared out of the blue when the sedan variant received it mid-cycle facelift in…

    Over the past 6 months, oil prices have collapsed. Regular unleaded gas in the US is selling for about $2.00 per gallon, almost half what it cost a few years ago.

This means that only around 50 still remain available. Presumably, these will go like hot cakes! The same does not go for the less obvious…

  • 7 Warning Signs You Need a Transmission Repair

    Jake Jensen
    17 Sep 2014 | 3:09 pm
    Next to the cost of replacing an engine, replacing a transmission is the most expensive vehicle repair an owner can make.

Having the original transmission repair (rebuilding the transmission) is even pricier, averaging $3000 or more, depending on the extent of the damage and make of the vehicle. Making repairs to a faulty transmission as soon as problems are detected dramatically reduces the cost of transmission work and can prevent the need for transmission replacement. If your car starts exhibiting any one of the…

But then I saw a pic of the Toyota 222D and…well lets just say I might be singing castrato for a while. Maybe it’s the compact ‘big things come in small packages’ look that the Toyota 222D sports that makes me want to give it one hell of a sideways blurt. Maybe it’s the plethora of available colours you can choose from (Black and/or White). Maybe…

    We all know that in today’s world, one of the bitterest competitions being led is between law enforcement that tries to catch speedy drivers off guard and fine them or take away their driver’s license and the drivers that use radar detectors, laser jammers and other ways of avoiding the law enforcement. The more adapted and advanced the speed guns and the laser guns the police use are, the more adapted the radar detectors will become in time and therefore the competition is very tight.

    Choosing a mirror mount or a windshield mount for a radar detector is crucial both for keeping the radar detector in one place and for positioning it in a place in the car in a way that follows the law, because in some countries, it is forbidden to place the radar detector in a car in a way that obstructs the driver’s view.First of all, mounting a radar detector on the windshield is very useful for detecting the laser guns used by the police, because the pulses are much harder to detect. By placing the radar detector outside, it makes it easier for it to detect the pulses and warn the…
