    Honda appeared to have hit a home run with it’s eye-searing green show-stopper at the New York Auto Show a couple weeks back. Now thanks to some new spy shots, we have a better idea of how closely the production version of the Civic Coupe will follow the high expectations set at the Javitz Center. These photos reinforce the concept’s almost-hatch profile and taillights spanning the width of the rear. The front preserves the aggressive brow over the headlights and prominent LED accents, only with a slight shallower, less chunky bumper and lower intake surrounds. Of course, such…

    Cadillac’s Mark Reuss is also GM’s executive vice president for global product development and he recently sat down with AutoBlog, where Reuss hinted that the new CT6 could be sent to the V finishing school to make a high-performance variant. Click here for our original post on the Cadillac CT6 from the 2015 New York Auto Show. In the interview, Reuss said the CT6’s Omega platform, which is loosely based off of the CTS’s and ATS’s Alpha platform, is more than capable of handling extra power and grunt.

    There are two things in this world that any automobile guru hold to a high-regard–V8s and BMWs. This isn’t to say that current BMW models don’t come with one of the greatest powerplant designs ever in history, but some cars were never given the option–one being the BMW 1-Series. That’s because it relied solely on BMW’s luscious straight-six, which is equally just fine. But then, Performance Technic by Marco Svizzero decided to do the unthinkable by seeing what a V8-equipped BMW 1-Series is like, by swapping the engine of a E92 BMW M3 into a 1-Series M…

    Volvo’s new XC90 is just about launching on our shores. And in order to gain access to one as well as have it in your driveway in exchange for your hard-earned money, you’ll need to fork over around $68,100 for the price of entry into a T8 Twin Engine variant. That’ll get you a Momentum trim-level model. As you climb up the ladder however, so do the amount of options on the extras list. For example, a top-spec Inscription model starts at $71,600.

    Some big changes are amounting for the launch of the second generation Hyundai Genesis Coupe. It didn’t exactly hit success with strides, provided it was a niche vehicle aimed at a very specific market, dominated otherwise by the Nissan 370Z. That said, Hyundai’s been rumored to be looking to change things up for the next-generation Genesis Coupe by moving the car up-market. For starters, the Genesis sedan was already reworked for the 2015 model year and serves as an excellent midsize luxury sports sedan. So that said, the Genesis Coupe could follow a similar lineage.

    What does a diesel shop in Michigan have in common with a Washingtonian florist and a Hoosier pizza hut? An owner who refuses to serve openly gay customers. WOOD-TV reports the owner of Grandville, Mich.-based Dieseltec, Brian Klawiter, posted a statement to his shop’s Facebook page Tuesday regarding his view that those with conservative, Christian values are being drowned out by those who don’t hold those values.

    The Commonwealth of Virginia is ready to set strict limits on how long license plate reader data can be retained, said limits being on the order of days. Autoblog reports two bills hit Governor Terry McAuliffe’s desk Wednesday that would balance the citizens’ right to privacy with law enforcement’s need to investigate potential crimes. One bill would limit data retention to just seven days, the other to 60 days. McAuliffe would have 30 days to act on the bills before both go into effect without his signature, with the review process set to begin “in the coming…

    Whenever you buy a performance car, there’s generally an intent to test its limits. There’s a winding country road by your house, but you likely will have to avoid cyclists, motorcyclists, residents mad about the broken speed limits and loud engine noise, as well as police officers ready to write a ticket. Highways are much rougher than they used to be (at least in California), so verifying the top speed of your Porsche down a freeway late at night might be a hairy proposition with the uneven road surfaces and random potholes. Consequently, your new performance car will be sitting in the…

    Mazda has managed to outsell Nissan in one major market. Any guesses? Mazda is on a roll in Germany, surpassing Nissan and other major brands. Honda’s all-new global platform for the Civic will allow for unprecedented manufacturing flexibility. Toyota will shift production of the Corolla from Canada to Mexico, and build larger vehicles in Canada instead. Chevrolet will stick with the Bolt moniker for its new EV. U.S. oil refineries are working overtime to process the record high levels of crude oil.   The post While You Were Sleeping: April 16th, 2015 appeared first on The Truth…

    Per a bankruptcy court ruling Wednesday, General Motors won’t be on the hook for pre-bankruptcy claims linked to the February 2014 ignition recall. Reuters reports U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Robert Gerber ruled that plaintiffs seeking damages from GM involving claims made prior to the automaker’s 2009 exit from bankruptcy would have to sue “Old GM” for said damages. Though the claims come to $32 billion, Old GM’s assets in October 2014 totaled around $9.25 billion, a recovery of 29 cents on the dollar. Gerber added that economic-loss plaintiffs could bring their…

    Released in 1975, the Porsche 930 Turbo would spark the imagination and dreams of many including our friend Magnus Walker. After collecting several early Turbos and still in need of the holy grail – a first year 1975 model, he turned to the folks at Autohaus Hamilton in Australia to help him acquire 1 of 15 right hand drive examples. We met up with Magnus in the canyons, along with the current 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo, to see just how much has changed in the last 40 years for this iconic car.

    -Fiat is finally bringing a real adult car to the U.S. market. The 500X invites mature drivers to slip into something more comfortable than the tiny two-door Cinquecento—the toylike city car that relaunched the brand in America in 2010—and offers a driving experience far more engaging than the dowdy 500L ever imagined. The X is so much nicer than the L, in fact, that we’d suggest the latter’s days should be numbered, its only advantage being a little bit more interior room. READ MORE ››-

Three years after first showing the A6L e-tron plug-in-hybrid concept at the 2012 Beijing auto show, Audi has finally taken the wraps off of the production model ahead of the 2015 Shanghai show. This Chinese-market, long-wheelbase plug-in hybrid may be tardy, but it’s expected to be fuel-thrifty and techy enough to qualify as a “New Energy Vehicle” in China.-Similar to the A3 e-tron, the A6L e-tron utilizes a turbocharged 2.o-liter four-cylinder engine, a disc-shaped electric motor, and an automatic transmission to power the front…

    BMW had several diesels including a 535d and 740Ld (neither pictured) at the New York show NEW YORK — The New York International Auto Show opens to the public on Friday and runs through April 12. The show dates back more than a century and was previously held at the New York Coliseum, the old Madison Square Garden, and the Grand Central Palace. While diesel cars were in evidence from many manufacturers, including Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen, the focus was on large luxury and performance vehicles.

    In a year marked mostly by significant decreases in fuel prices, motorists have been paying more at the pump in the past few weeks, although prices still remain significantly lower than they were a year ago. Diesel prices are lower this week, with the average price for a gallon of diesel fuel at $2.864, $0.053 less than a week ago, and $1.124 lower than a year ago, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Meanwhile, the average price for a gallon of gasoline increased from a low of $2.03 on Jan. 25 to $2.457 this week. That number is $0.004 more than the price last week,…

The X5 xDrive40e features a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor and powered by a lithium-ion battery that is integrated into its eight-speed automatic transmission.

It comes with tons of cargo space, a fuel-sipping diesel engine, and is available with a manual transmission option. As often reported in The Diesel Driver, 80% of buyers of the…

Four years ago, electric cars were cutting edge — but now they are moving into middle age and are making their way to the used car market. “There are going to be great deals for 3-year-old, barely used electric vehicles,” Brad Berman of plugincars.com said.

WOBURN, Mass. - The effects of a recall can do quite a bit more harm to a vehicle’s image than the immediate problems they typically cause – they can also dramatically accelerate their rate of value depreciation. That’s according to the analysts at iSeeCars.com, who recently released the results of a study they conducted to see the effect of a specific situation, the Takata airbag recall, on the depreciation rate of the vehicles they were in. Their findings are staggering – according to their results, based on an…

Standing near the back, by the free earplug dispenser, I make eye contact with the auctioneer, and quickly look away: He doesn’t need much of a sign to think you want to jack up the price, and I’m just here to watch. A wink, nod, or twitch of the finger is plenty to join the fray. Clint Esken, one of my guides for the day, bids so subtly I barely notice.

It’s all the responsibility, with none of the compensation! Scarcely a couple of weeks before opening day, news outlets received a terse statement from MINI: they would be withdrawing their entire exhibition from the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). This is kind of a big deal; New York is a big show, one of the perennial “majors,” and MINI has never been considered a boutique manufacturer. As a subset of…

    mpg-o-editor
    4 Apr 2015 | 4:38 pm
    I’ve been waiting to test Ethanol Free Gasoline (E0) for eons, but I could never find a local service station that carries it. Blame it on the lawmakers. As it turns out, New Jersey state law stipulates that all of the gas sold here must contain ten percent ethanol. Thankfully, ethanol-free gas is sold on the other side of the Delaware River, fifty odd miles from home. I took Slambo for a ride today, to fill up with E0 for the first time. I intend to test it over a number of tanks. Proponents of ethanol-free gas claim a significant jump in fuel economy. Just how much is the big…

Once thought of purely from a performance perspective, forced induction technology has become a cornerstone of the march to higher fuel efficiency. You can have your cake and eat it too.

    Every gear head knows that synthetic motor oils deliver a higher level of protection than conventional oils, but the high-tech slippery stuff has a downside when it comes to older engines. Quite simply, it’s just too slippery. A well-worn engine will burn more full synthetic oil due to leaks. That’s why the oil manufacturers initially used conventional oil or synthetic blends in high mileage products, including Quaker State Defy and Valvoline MaxLife Synthetic Blend. There’s a trend underway to replace the blends with specially formulated full synthetic oils, like Mobil 1 High Mileage…

    That Car Guy
    15 Apr 2015 | 11:55 am
    I guess it should not be a surprise that I picked this microbial minicar, since about anything you do to a GM T-Body will improve it anyway. But I have always defended this car, which was the best-selling American small car of 1979 and 1980. After all, I did own two of these beauties. First off, I'd keep virtually all of the external sheet metal, but build an up-to-date, high-tensile steel space frame under there that meets today's crash standards. After all, is the Chevette really such a bad looking car? But you know, why not use the original hood/grill assembly and headlights?

    As my Quantum Leap scenario, I have chosen -- perhaps not surprisingly -- the Mustang II. The main reason, of course, is that I'm rather intimately familiar with the model, its strengths, foibles, shortcomings, etc. I've also spent much of the last 25 years of owning it alternatingly defending its honor, calling it a 'sucky old car', and in the end trying to put it in its proper context and evaluating it that way.  In a way, I'm almost tempted not to change anything at all, since it really was a fairly successful car for Ford, despite the many protestations that…

    This has to be one of the single strangest stories I've ever heard in the Porsche world. Allegedly, this Porsche was purchased by the current owner (his name is Jay) in 1984, and the car was already a bodge-job of some wacky elements. It had wide RSR-esque fenders, some weird tack on rocker panel covers, a ducktail engine lid, and some IROC bumpers on a short wheelbase Porsche. Not to mention, the drivetrain had been dropped at some point, and the original 2-liter power plant was replaced by a CIS-fueled 2.7 liter engine and a 915 gearbox out of a 1974 911. It had a roll bar, and there was…

As season openers go, this one was excellent, and paints a picture of a promising WEC season in 2015. Porsche suffered some failure, but also reveled in the opportunity to triumph over them.

First, some definitions. Muscle cars are old. Nothing new — nothing modern — qualifies as a muscle car. The defining attribute of a muscle car is not horsepower or performance. Nor that it has a V8 engine feeding power to the rear wheels. There are many new (and modern) cars that do that. And they are not muscle cars, even if some of them look like they might be (and…

    17 Apr 2015 | 9:01 am
    Since officially starting deliveries in late 2014, there's been several changes made to the range structure of Tesla's Model S all-electric luxury sedan. The headline news is, of course, the addition of the Model S P85D as the high-performance flagship of the range. Able to accelerate to 100km/h in just 3.3 seconds, the P85D shames its rivals from AMG, Audi RS and BMW M. At the other end of the scale, the entry-level Model S 60 has been dropped.

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Shelby Cobra capturing the World Manufacturers Championship for GT cars, defeating the might of Ferrari. You can bet there will be plenty of events taking place to mark the occasion, and even more items of merchandise doing so will be released.

  • Larte Design Elizabeta is a Tastier Tesla Model S

    Tom Anderson
    17 Apr 2015 | 1:08 pm
    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The Tesla Model S is, for us and many other people, a visually striking automobile. No, its styling doesn’t shout its green car cred from the proverbial rooftops like, say, the BMW i duo does, but it has curves and overall proportions that are quite pleasing to the eye. Surely there’s no way Larte Design could improve upon them, is there? Well, that depends on what you like. If you’re into front fascias with angular scoops and reshaped grille openings (or, in the case of electric cars like the Model S, “grille” openings), rear fascias with…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Peugeot has built more than a few magnifique hot hatches over the last 30 years or so, most of which wearing either the GTI or Rallye suffixes. But the company, which has seen more than its share of changes occur in the 126 years since it built its first automobile (a steam-powered three-wheeler), can see the writing on the wall: Downsized forced-induction engines and electrification are the wave of the (near term) future, particularly for performance cars. And Peugeot has a pumped-up plug-in hybrid concept that, while not as fast or sexy as the 918…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Concept cars get plenty of attention from gearheads (ourselves included), but did you know motorcycle manufacturers occasionally build concept bikes? Makes sense, right? Well Motus – an Alabama-based builder of sport-touring motorcycles – has built a concept, and it’s an absolute monster. Dubbed the Lone Star 2, this Dixie dynamo is based on the MSTR, the more upmarket of the two current production bikes Motus offers. The stock bodywork has been ditched, while a new fuel tank and seat have been installed on the 4130 chromoly tubular steel frame…
  • Startech Range Rover Pickup is an Anglophone Avalanche

    Tom Anderson
    15 Apr 2015 | 1:07 pm
    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Tuned Range Rovers are hardly a novelty in this day and age. The mostly aluminum current model has hordes of body kits, engine upgrades, suspension kits and other parts available for it, so Startech – the division of Brabus that handles Jaguar and Land Rover products – knew it would have to do something special to the Range Rover it would be showing at the upcoming Shanghai Auto Show to help it stand out from the herd. And we reckon turning it into a crew-cab pickup succeeds in doing so. The rearmost section of the roof has been jettisoned, with a…

The need for low-key transportation, however, probably isn’t one of them. And should you choose to modify your 458, then you’ve gone even further and thrown away any inkling of staying under the radar. But if one of Liberty […] The post Is It Possible?

If you have no clue on what the GLC is, we will remind you the renaming scheme performed by Mercedes-Benz where the ML became the GLE and it gave birth to the GLE Coupe, a true rival for the BMW X6.

    A very rare example of the Porsche Carrera GT has been involved in a crash recently, in Italy. The Porsche Carrera GT was a true mid-engined supercar put together in Leipzig, Germany, but because production has been made in just 1,270 units, exclusivity is the key word to describe it. A silver finished example of the exotic ride has been highlighted recently but Porsche fans should avoid this article because it will probably ruin their day.

    At times, the Lexus RX has suffered the same criticism that has plagued the Lexus brand as a whole. Some have said that the RX is too middle-of-the-road, too conservative, too boring. For 2016, Lexus clearly wanted to change that and took a decidedly revolutionary approach to redesigning the popular, conventional crossover. Now in its fourth generation, the RX has been infused with the same aggressive style that has steadily made its way into the automaker’s lineup. While it boasts softer lines than the recently launched compact NX, the new RX crossover has plenty of creases and character…

One of the many reasons for the car’s popularity is its versatility—over the years, the Civic has been available as a sedan, coupe, hatchback, and wagon with power output ranging from a measly 50 hp in its first generation to 276 hp in the most recent version of the Type R (which hasn’t been available in the U.S., but stay tuned!), and won over passionate fans ranging from mileage-focused greenies to tire-shredding tuners.
  • The New Optima and the Future of Kia

    17 Apr 2015 | 11:59 am
    Kia Motors introduced the 2016 Kia Optima at the New York International Auto show a couple of weeks ago as part of an effort to revitalize the brand. As the lesser arm of the mighty Hyundai Motor Group, Kia Motors has struggled to distinguish itself from the South Korean automotive giant’s larger arm (by which we mean Hyundai itself, of course). Kia owes a lot to Hyundai, having been rescued from bankruptcy and absorbed into the conglomerate back in 1998. Kia first introduced its rebranded Hyundai Sonata in 2000 as the Kia Optima in North America, and Kia has since been doing what it can…

    If you heard the term “Standard of the World” 100 years ago, only one thing would come to mind: Cadillac. Fast forward a bit and you see the famed automaker enter a dramatic decline, followed by a powerful resurgence. Cadillac is going through a bit of a renaissance right now. Less than two decades ago, we saw the likes of the Cadillac DeVille roaming the streets. Sporting lackluster looks and even worse build quality, the DeVille is second only to the simply awful Cadillac Cimarron on the list of duds produced during Cadillac’s dark age. Thankfully, we have left those…

    We now have proof that almost any car can pass the 200,000-mile mark. Earlier this week we were a little put off by a list of cars likely to last 200,000 miles that included only Toyota and Honda vehicles. We posted a response on our blog asking for help in proving that claim wrong. We know we have a dedicated group of proud drivers as readers, because we heard from dozens of folks who have proudly taken their vehicles most of the way to the quarter-million-mile mark and beyond.

    My daughter’s birthday nearly ended in the bitter cold, stranded on the side of the road in a questionable area of downtown. After a nice birthday dinner, my wife and two of our girls clambered into the Legacy to thaw from the unusually frozen April night. With the car started and the heat on, I was ready to pull out of my prime parking space and embark on the journey home. But I noticed a woman on the sidewalk taking a funny glance at the car as she walked past. Her brief but concerned look caused me to pause enough to wonder what she saw. I got out of the car and found my…

  • 10 Self-Driving Cars of the Not-So-Distant Future

    2 Apr 2015 | 11:04 am
    Image Source Over the last year, self-driving cars have moved from a distant dream to a beckoning reality. Though self-driving tech will be phased in incrementally, this year promises the first wave of automation, with a quarter of global auto sales expected to incorporate self-driving tech by the 2020’s. On the legislative side, four states and the District of Columbia allow self-driving car testing, and the undeclared legal status of self-driving cars in the remaining 46 states seems to hint at the fact that “it’s legal until it’s illegal.” Check out 10…
  • EcoBoost V6 Perfect for Ford GT

    Dustin Driver
    7 Mar 2015 | 12:00 am
    The EcoBoost V6 is perfect for the 2017 Ford GT. It doesn’t need a V8. The Ferrari-humiliating GT40 had a V8. First a 255 c.i., then a 298 c.i., then a colossal iron behemoth 427 c.i. V8 with more torque than the planet Saturn. You know why? Because those were the best engines Ford had back then. They were powerful, reliable, and made a wonderful noise. But today, Ford’s best engine is arguably the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. It’s a technical tour de force. It makes 380 hp and 460 lbft in the Lincoln Navigator, for chrissake. It’s an engineering marvel. The thing has direct…

In the US, 2014 was the second year in a row in which it finally looked like we were out of the recession. Confidence seemed to be high, with U.S. auto inventory stockpiles at their highest levels since 2006, and the industry seems to have successfully adapted past the unfortunate bailouts of a decade before.

Inefficient, high-displacement engines flee in their wake, screaming in terror before the advancing army of forced-induction warriors! The big V8 is dying in a swirl of super-compressed and intercooled air. And Ford, one of the Grandaddies of the big V8, is heralding it’s demise.

    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…

The hypnotizing Honda S660 belongs only to this Japanese automaker. However, lately it has already been treated and improved by Mugen. At the same time, more expensive version Type R will probably have an engine with 75 kW (100 bhp) and more aggressive look. Given that reports say that the S1000 model will be a global car, we can easily assume that this roadster will be broader available. If all the rumors on the car are correct, we can…

    Koenigsegg has always made crazy cars full of crazy technology, like engines with no camshafts, but this might be the most insane car on the planet. Period. The Regera had a hybrid electric power train that produces a total of around 1800hp. 1100hp which comes from Koenigsegg’s 5.0 twin turbo V8, is complimented by a further 700hp from 3 electric motors, one mated to the transmission, and one to each rear wheel. All this means that this car is rear wheel drive. Let me run that by you again, upwards of 1800hp through the rear wheels and the rear wheels only. I’ll let that soak in.

In many ways her Audi A4 reflects her own style - classy and sophisticated without the bells and whistles of matte black wraps and giant chrome rims. Even her Mercedes C Class is black, the security glass a sure way of avoiding the cameras.

I decided to replace the IAC, but now I still seem to have the same "miss" (kinda like a mini-backfire under load, but less obvious. This rough idle and cough was not there before my "fix".

    Is there anyway to identify what options came on a srt vehicle? I know this info is available on the window sticker but if you don't have access to a window sticker than what are your choices? And yes, you can look at the car and some options are obvious but some are not. For example, can you physically tell if an srt GC has the premium audio by looking at it? It's funny. You can access a Ford window sticker (online) for ever if you have a VIN. With jeep, as soon as the car is sold, the window sticker is no longer kept online.

    This has been the most complicated vehicle purchase I’ve ever made. The first two weeks were filled with surprises and setbacks. And I still haven’t fully registered the truck in my own name yet. THE HOME RUN Before I’d even confirmed the truck was mine, I’d already negotiated a super sweet deal with local buddy Josh to get him home. Turns out all the links I shared with him for feedback on gen 2.5 Monteros in SoCal got him thinking about picking one up, too. For $250, Josh was happy to make the quick weekend road trip. A week to the day after I’d made contact with the seller, Josh…

PREFACE I’ve been playing with Mitsubishis almost exclusively since 1996. First was “Daisy,” my 1997 Eagle Talon. Then came 195 (of 2000), my 1991 Galant VR4 – the would-be rally car. The GVR4 so impressed me, I couldn’t bear the thought of bending 195 on a dirt road somewhere and not being able to find another. I bought 464 (of 1000), my second GVR4 – a 1992. As my rally/race car dreams evolved, then dissolved, I found myself in…

    The Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer 1.6 CDTi has been tested by car experts and has received some rave reviews. For £19,930 for the Tech Line model, we think it’s a pretty good deal. Coming with a new 1.6 CDTi engine which emits just 97g/km of C02 and 76.3 mpg, it is an extremely economical type of car. This new model is seen as somewhat as the saviour of the Vauxhall Astra, helping it to elevate the car to next level.

With icons like the Maruti 800 and the Hyundai Santro having ceased production last year, 2015 will bid farewell to some of the once popular cars that found homes across…

    Image Credit: BTCC.net The British Touring Car Championship blasted back onto the scene at Brands Hatch for the opening round of the 2015 season.

    Mercedes-Benz, one of the oldest vehicle makers on the planet, is rightly known for its broad range of passenger vehicles. Not unsurprisingly, in certain quarters, their commercial vehicles garner just as much acclaim. A well known nameplate for M-B Commercial Vehicles is the Sprinter, a vehicle I have great personal affection for as it’s one of the first vehicles I sold in my car sales career. In its category, the large van market, the Sprinter has recently been named the number one seller for the seventeenth year in a row, for the Australia/Pacific region. There’d be very few,…

    12 Apr 2015 | 5:31 pm
    Australia has had a long love affair with the V8 engine; be it homegrown or imported, it’s been a big part of our automotive history. In 2014, Ford Australia’s FPV division was shut down and the popular XR8 name resurrected. A Wheel Thing spent a week with a living dinosaur. Powersource. The 5.0L V8 was once a staple item for Holden; Ford has, largely, stayed with it and in this case, it’s a blown block too. The numbers are impressive: the “Miami” 335 kilowatts and 570 torques hit the road via a six speed manual (a real man’s transmission). Air is breathed…

    Daylight Savings has come to an end in New South Wales and all the other states crazy enough to fiddle around with clocks for no real reason. This means that a lot of us are going to end up doing a bit more night-time driving. It’s hard to say whether driving at night or driving during the day is better.  During the daytime, you don’t have the issue about out-driving how far you can see (you know – the situation where your stopping distance is, say, 100 metres and you can only see 90 metres: not good).  However, during the night, you are less distracted by billboards and other things…

Four circular headlights are a relatively new design feature originally conceived to separate higher-end 3-series models from their lesser counterparts.

    Jim Taylor
    27 Feb 2015 | 8:12 am
    The excitement of a brand new car has long tempted Americans to skip used models and find one that just rolled off the assembly line. While this might be exciting, it’s often not the best way to get an excellent price on a car, and it leaves a lot to be desired when comparing the long-term value of a vehicle. A gently used vehicle often gives buyers the same “new car” feeling, with a lower price tag, a quicker repayment period, and identical benefits to a car that hasn’t been previously owned. That’s especially true for eight specific makes and models that are…

    Getting your car serviced regularly is an important part of owning a vehicle. Servicing ensures that the car is running safely and at optimum performance. It identifies if any parts need to be replaced or are in danger of wearing out in the near future. When you purchase a car it will come with a manual that lays out the appropriate schedule of servicing for your vehicle. For the best results, it is recommended that you stick to this schedule, but you do have a choice about who does your service: the manufacturer (or their registered dealerships) or an independent mechanic.

  • How to build a gas tank from scratch- Save Money and replace that Rusty Tank!

    3 Apr 2015 | 11:58 am
    Now that we're thawing out here in Eastwood country I've decided to get this old gal back on the road and I decided to tackle the mechanics. The problem with any "barn find" like this is that they normally have mechanically deteriorated just from sitting for so long. Normally people don't plan to park a vehicle for a long time, just until they get time to fix it up. This means all of the fluids are left in the vehicle and those fluids over time tend to break down and cause issues. The worst thing to do if you park a vehicle for a long period of time (more than 6-8 months in my opinion) is to…
  • How to Choose the Right Sanding Block

    27 Mar 2015 | 7:54 am
    How to Choose the Right Sanding Block The sanding block gets its name because once upon a time it was just a block of wood with sandpaper stuck to it. The hard, flat block allowed you to sand to a much more uniform surface. Later, the heavy rubber style “alligator” or “vampire” sanding blocks were invented with teeth in them to grip a 1/4 strip of sand paper, but that compared to today that is still stone age technology. Now there are blocks of all shapes, sizes and materials, for use on different shaped panels, and make all of our lives easier. Sandpaper has come a long way too, but…

    Electric Vehicles for Resilience (in natural disasters) Those involved in the EV movement are quite aware of the portable utility of EVs.  Even those who have survived the recent Polar Vortexes in the North Eastern United States are well aware of how much easier it is to drive an EV after a disaster (especially with a solar roofed home). But there’s so much more and Nissan is promoting Electric Vehicles for Resilience in these situations. The Nissan LEAF has a 24 kWh battery.  The typical home uses about 10 kWh of power per day. So the LEAF can support the home for more than 2 days.

    Miles per Dollar Spent is the new vehicle efficiency metric There’s been much controversy over the environmental cost to drive electric versus the old standard to drive using petroleum.  But how many miles per dollar spent can your vehicle transport you? The results of a California Bay Area website may or may not shock you. The AfterOilEV blog has a simple metric with alterable values so that you can estimate for yourself, the local costs and values.  How far does your dollar go?  Although those who drive electric may have a much shorter range, is their cost really that much less.

    27 Mar 2015 | 6:48 am
    Technicians and Service Advisors are extremely productive members of your dealership team. Generating between $10-30K a month is gross profit, each individual in the Service Department is practically a small-business owner when considering the high levels of revenue and expenses that they manage. So why are they left clueless when it comes to the core metrics that drive a profitable operation?

    Below are some thoughts on what overpaying a technician can do to your profitability and a suggestion on how to set up a simple, effective pay plan that will protect your bottom line. Let’s start with what you [hopefully] know: In order to run a profitable service department, your gross margins (i.e. the difference between what you collect from the customer and what you pay the technician) must be above 70% on retail, warranty and internal labor, preferably 72-75%. These margins can be weak if discounting is rampant, pricing is faulty, or technician pay plans are not set up properly.

The stronger Service departments in North America make sure advisors, technicians and any other productive personnel understand this key metric since it drives a significant portion of the Service Department’s profitability. Unfortunately, too often the numbers are just pulled from the DMS without any real analysis on how the metric is calculated and what it means. Let’s explore the basics: The first step to make sure everyone is clear on what Effective Labor Rate is. Ask…

We can also estimate that at any moment of the day, 660,000 Americans are using some type of mobile device while driving. This is a frightening thought that motivated us to spread the word about National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. In Pennsylvania, it’s been illegal to text and drive since March 2012.

    There are so many myths when it comes to proper car care in the winter that it’s pretty hard to keep them all straight. We often have customers ask us about the best ways to start their cars and get moving on cold mornings, so we decided to compile them all into one FAQ post. Q. Should I let my car warm up before driving? A. Unless your was built before 1990, the answer is no. Modern cars don’t have carburetors that need to warm up.

    Emmett Young
    27 Mar 2015 | 2:26 am
    While attempting to dodge all of the potholes this winter, you may have caused some damage to your alignment. Wheel alignment is an important part of car care. Poor tire alignment may decrease your miles per gallon and wear out your tires quickly. But how do you know when it’s time to get your wheel aligned? Drifting. If you notice that your car is pulling to the right or left when you are trying to drive straight, then it is probably time for an alignment. Properly aligned tires drive straight and true, along with your steer wheel. Unevenness. If your front and back tires have…

This death-defying accident was recorded by CCTV in Sochi, Russia on a day that highways were treacherously icy. The pilot of the Range Rover was obviously driving faster than conditions allowed and lost control on a curve. The SUV rode up then vaulted over the guardrail, plummeting nearly 70 feet to the road below. The back end of the Rover disintegrated on impact.

Considering that the RAV4 was the best selling Toyota crossover and it is by far the most popular, we thought that Toyota will reveal a hybrid version much sooner. However, it did not happen before and the brand who tries it’s best to be the greenest in the world finally stepped up its game and offered the thing as the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. Based on the redesigned 2016 Toyota RAV4, the new RAV4 hybrid adopts basically the same styling and the same exterior look as the petrol powered SUV. That means that the front and rear…

However, when we do, it’s usually one or two other people, and rarely are we fitting three people in the vehicle. It’s nice to have the option to fit three people, but we often ride with less.One of the complaints that is common to owners of Model S are the lack of cup holders in the vehicle.

    I have to confess that one of my guilty pleasures, outside of sneaking in a Twix candy bar after dinner, is watching videos of the Tesla P85D rip the innards out of practically every drag strip rival it encounters. Best of all, this insane Model S just keeps getting more insane. Case in point is the recent over-the-air (OTA) Firmware 6.2 update that not only increases top speed to 155 mph, as seen in the P85D top speed run on the German Autobahn, but further reduces the 0-60 time to near sub 3 second territory!POPULAR >>> [Audio] Elon Musk on Firmware 6.2, Autopilot and 500 mile…

The increased speed can only be sustained for a short duration during high speed passing before being trimmed back to a sustainable speed of 135 mph.As you’ll see in the following video shot on the German Autobahn by a P85D owner, the energy consumption meter begins to turn red at approximately 145 mph (235 km/h) which indicates that you’ll have approximately another 7 seconds (according to the video) of high speed mode before the system…

About a decade later, the 1982 Volkswagen Scirocco GTS made its debut, loosely based on the Golf GTI of the time.

Diesels have generally been marketed as being far more fuel efficient than petrols, potentially offering incredibly good miles per gallon, which is supposed to be good for the environment, and engine longevity. Now however, this article suggests that there are proposals to place additional taxes on many diesel-powered cars when they go into certain areas of several UK cities, and this is because while the vehicles might be efficient on fuel, they aren’t actually that good for the environment, or indeed,…

    If you’re in the market for a new car, you’ve probably noticed that many models have larger wheels and tyres. Larger wheel and tyre packages look stylish, but because of lower tyre sidewall height, ride comfort may be reduced.

Although you may be on a budget, it’s important to remember that buying cheap tyres which don’t have at least a certain level of quality will only make it less cost-effective in the long run, since you’ll have to replace them much more often. Buying premium tyres will generally ensure that you’re good to drive for around 15,000-20,000 miles. You can buy tyres in Australia at many good auto stores, and most of them will have a wide range of types available. For…

Next time your tire blows out or you need emergency repairs, you can pull up the BFGoodrich app. Find the service you need, make the phone call — and then pull up a list of the nearest motels if you want.

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.

While it sold in huge numbers here in North America and maintains a rabid following in the off road community, it was a complete pile of garbage, especially the early carbureted versions.

That was it for Winter preparation in much of Canada, especially for those who drove American cars. Some, more forward thinking motorists installed snow tires, a pair of them, on the rear wheels. The idea was to prevent one from becoming stuck in the snow. It was all about forward movement, there was never any thought to steering or braking.

Just in case of what I asked, to which he answered: “You never know when you’ll have to get out of town quickly.” Ok then.

This new style of motoring has caught on like a wildfire and is showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon. So what is drifting all about? Let’s start with what drifting is not about. It’s not about neon lights, giant shiny rims, and getting sideways in parking garages like you would see in…well, you know.
