    Buying an older motorhome is more like buying an older house than it is like buying an older car: The more recently it’s been lived in, the better. Fortunately, then, it seems that this 1982 Volkswagen Vanagon Transporter bodied by Tischer for sale on Hemmings.com has been enjoyed as a motorhome rather recently and kept up well, though the seller does note some aspects of it that could be improved. From the seller’s description: 122,000 kilometers, 4 speed manual, 1.6 diesel 4 cylinder, rare, nice condition, new tires, interior freshly redone, appliances not tested so assume they…

    Hyundai’s on the verge of revealing the all-new 2016 Hyundai Elantra, which is the Avante in other markets and recently, a Korean car blog was able to catch the new Elantra on its assembly line completely uncovered! As previewed by the design renderings officially released by Hyundai themselves, the Elantra appears to be faithful to its new design direction. Clearly moving up market with a much more mature and sleek design, the new Elantra gives off the vibe and appearance of being a shrunken down Genesis sedan, and that’s not a bad thing at all.

In 2013, it was officially announced that TVR Automotive Ltd. was reacquired by the British at the hands of a successful entrepreneur, Led Edgar, relieving the ownership rights from Russian tycoon, Nikolai Smolensky, who did little to aid the automaker’s sustainability and growth. Since then Edgar’s been working with TVR Automotive Ltd. to…

Speculation suggests Kia could be readying a wagon variant to the Optima, first previewed by the excellently styled, SportSpace Concept from the 2015 Geneva Auto Show earlier this year.

  • Toyota Wants $500 From Canadian Owners To Fix Odometers (Video)

    Owners of some Toyota cars in Canada say that the Japanese automaker is asking them to foot the bill for replacement odometers due to a glitch that won’t allow the gauges to roll over after 299,999 kilometers, CTV is reporting (via AutoFocus). The glitchy odometers are found in 2003-2008 Toyota Matrix and Corolla models, and some 2004 and 2005 Toyota Prius models. There are a few videos on YouTube of people expecting to hit 300,000, but they never do. We reached out to a Toyota spokesman in the U.S. but haven’t heard back.

On Thursday, Ford’s Group Vice President for Global Product Development and Chief Technical Officer Raj Nair told a group of last-gen Ford GT owners that it would ask potential owners to submit an application through the automaker to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for the supercar. Official pricing for the car hasn’t been announced, nor has the criteria for ownership been made public. Ford said it would only make…

It looks roughly similar to the sketches we saw earlier this month from Hyundai, although its grille isn’t as dynamic and the South Korean car has doors. The front’s design features the same large, hexagonal grille and the sleeker, lower headlights. The taillamps are decidedly different as well. The next-generation Elantra is scheduled to be unveiled in November at the Los Angeles auto show.  Inside the Elantra will have a much bigger steering…

The van appeared in neighborhoods around the area — even parked next to a school bus — when residents became concerned. “It just felt like they were trying to track kids and it just gave me a creepy feeling,” said the mother of Lawrence Bellow, 12, who took a picture of the van.

Nobody was hurt beyond his own sore back and no one besides Mr. Walker himself had any monetary loss from the incident. Heck, with the extra publicity it might be a net gain for the dreadlocked whiteboy from the United Kingdom. Which leaves us, the viewers, absolutely free to laugh and/or gloat about the whole thing.

In Volkswagen’s stomping grounds, it was once again sponsored by the German car company with two Beetles in the mix driven by Tanner Foust and Scott Speed. This year, the track was moved to the north side of the stadium, adopting part of the track left over from the ill-fated American Le Mans Series (ALMS) Cadillac Grand Prix in 2002.

    I haven't always been a fan of Volvo's top-end SUV, but this all-new model has made me a believer. It's hard to fathom how the company can take a two-ton model and make it handle like a compact, but it has. Find out more in my review over at Autofocus.

  • Diesel Prices Down Around the Country As Holiday Weekend Approaches

    Jesse Sokolow
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:40 am
    Fuel prices in the United States continue to fall and the end is not in sight after the price of a barrel of oil briefly dipped below $40 last Friday, a six-year low. On average, drivers are spending 25% less at the pump this year versus last. The lower prices have spurred U.S. drivers to take to the road and oil refineries are struggling to keep up with the demand. The average price for a gallon of diesel fell $1.260 from a year ago to $2.561, a price that was $1.135 less than a year ago, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Meanwhile, the average price for a gallon of…

    26 Jun 2015 | 10:50 am
    The price of diesel fuel fell for the fourth week in a row in the United States as part of an overall decline in fuel prices. The price of a gallon of diesel fuel at the pump was down $0.01.1 to $2.859, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. That price is $1.060 cheaper than in the same period in 2014. With the exception of New England, which saw an increase of $0.012, and the West Coast (without California), up $0.006, diesel prices fell in every region of the country.

    Service managers needn’t wait for outside help to drill advisors on positivity, communication and other ‘soft’ skills. Have you had a less-than-great encounter with a dealership service advisor? Was that service representative rude? Did he come off as though he could care less about your needs, unwilling to serve, as though you were getting in the way of his routine? My wife and I recently had just such an experience, and it has stayed with me. Having been in this industry for more than 30 years, I realize one of the greatest challenges to dealerships is how best to deliver a…

    Many businesses wonder where they are at in the grand scheme of things. While success is definitely a relative term, for marketers the gold occurs when shoppers begin to develop brand loyalty. There are three typical stages a business will go through before achieving brand loyalty at large. The first stage a business would want to achieve is awareness. At it’s most basic, this means that people are aware that the business exists. Many never even reach this stage! Marketing and a logo can go a long way towards establishing the existence of a business, but the path to brand loyalty doesn’t…

    28 Aug 2015 | 12:01 am
    One of the more surprising things at the Studebaker meet last Saturday was the microcar delegation. There were four King Midgets in attendance. They were down next to the Packards, which made for quite a study in contrasts. It didn't register with me until I was looking at the photos the next day, but the little fella between the King Midget Model III and the Packard in the photo above looks like a cyclekart. I'm kicking myself for not getting a better look or a good clear picture of it. In my defense, I missed the cyclekart in large part because I was fascinated by another display…

    For our third installment in the series, we'll start with this lovely 1927 coupe, which held seniority over everything else at the show.  As usual for a Studebaker meet, there were 1950-51 "bullet noses,"... ..and examples of the other variations on the "first by far" postwar cars. There was also a restored '55 sedan... ...and some very nicely restored examples of the 1956-58 flat-front body style,... ...and some of the "final generation" (1964-66) Lark derivatives. They were letting the kids "decorate" this unrestored barn-find '66…

    We'll start the second installment of our series on last Saturday's Studebaker Drivers Club meet in Talmadge with a look at the Larks. The most exalted of the whole exaltation was this wickedly weaponized Wagonaire. I normally don't go for hot rod black, but the teal accents (and matching shoes) really set it off. The prime mover is suitably ferocious.  Not sure what the function of the beer can on the firewall is, though. Here's one more Lark to take note of, should you be looking for a project car. The body appears to be solid, and he seller claims it's…

    27 Aug 2015 | 8:10 am
    To many of you it might be a given that the Porsche 919 LMP1 would continue to race next year and beyond, but that wasn't necessarily the case. The 919 program itself is hugely expensive, employing some 230 people. More importantly, and as Matthias Müller, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, said: “Motorsport is an important part of Porsche’s brand identity – but not an end in itself." In other words, not only does Porsche need to win (as they did for the 17th time this year at Le Mans) they need to create technology that translates to road going cars. As that's exactly what…

    Porsche engineers built the original Gran Turismo Sport for the 1964 Targa Florio In the 60's, many races took place on public roads and covered long distances. As a result, the engineers from Zuffenhausen needed a Porsche that was fast, comfortable and safe; allowing the drivers to completely focus on the race. The GTS was the answer. The car seen above, the silver Porsche Carrera, was the first to wear the GTS badge, and was driven flat out for seven hours and ten minutes by Porsche factory drivers Baron Antonio Pucci and his passenger Colin Davis.

He was on an absolute flyer in this session, and I'm so glad that it was all on video. This is masterfully produced, by the way, as the commentary is even added, which helps to tell the narrative of the race. It's a great video, so give it a watch right here! In case you didn't catch it, Canepa's car suffered a transmission failure in the Saturday morning session after getting off to a great lead. During…

After two full years on the show circuit, only a last-minute stay of execution kept it from getting crushed. Yet, instead of returning to the public eye, it has remained largely out of sight for the last 45 years, a condition that will change this fall when the newly restored Buick-based one-off appears at auction. Unlike most concept cars, however, the Exemplar I didn’t emerge from a major automaker’s styling studio. Rather, its genesis lies with the…

    Much of the civil unrest in suburban St. Louis over the last year has been linked to public frustration with onerous traffic enforcement coupled with court systems that operate more like debtors prisons than actual institutions of justice. In 2013, Ferguson, population 21,000, issued 33,000 arrest warrants for unpaid traffic tickets and other minor offenses. Thankfully, Missouri has enacted a new law that bans towns from jailing motorists who can’t pay their traffic fines and that caps the amount of revenue cities in St. Louis County can collect from traffic revenue.

  • A3 e-tron The First Step In Audi’s Electric Plans

    27 Aug 2015 | 6:32 pm
    More than just a new model in the range, Audi’s A3 e-tron represents the start of a new chapter for the German brand as it moves to introduce a range of high-tech, low emissions models. The e-tron badge will feature on a growing range of models that make use of a plug-in hybrid, or fully electric drivetrain. Audi has modest sales expectations to begin with, banking on around ten cars per month initially. “We believe around 10 per month is likely and we do expect that t...

    In what may be the last major update in its life cycle, Honda's CR-Z hybrid hot hatch has been given one final makeover in its home market of Japan. The most obvious changes are the new front and rear bumpers that feature an aerofoil motif spanning nearly their full width, new LED headlamps and new 16 and 17-inch alloy wheel designs. There's also a new colour, Velvet Purple Pearl. But look beyond the cosmetic changes, and there are more substantial revisions. Honda calls this...

    The skinny: Audi touts its new plug-in hybrid A3 e-tron as a vehicle that will change the world, not change the way you drive. After a quick stint behind the wheel, there’s no reason to disagree. Exactly the same as any other A3 to drive, the only thing an A3 e-tron needs is a wall to plug into - and even then, that’s optional. With this car, which is a very impressive drive, Audi has taken a step in the right direction towards greener mobility. Vehicle Style: Premium small hyb...

  • Dähler BMW M235i Cabrio is an M2 Preview

    Tom Anderson
    28 Aug 2015 | 3:22 pm
    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The BMW M235i is a damn fine compact premium sport coupe (or convertible, if you’re the sun-worshipping sort), but it is not, as its multiple-numeral name suggests, an actual M Car. No, BMW is instead saving the M2 designation for a more hard-edged, hyperactive version of the F22 platform that we hear will be making its debut either at Frankfurt next month or here in L.A. come November. What sorts of numbers can we expect that car to put up? A Swiss tuner called Dähler has a few ideas… Dähler (which concentrates on BMWs but also offers parts and…

But who wants to live on a white, sandy beach fronting clear blue water if the actual house is a 40 square-foot paper-mache shack? Thankfully, there’s a house for sale that, in addition to being situated on a beautiful plot of land in Cape Tribulation, Queensland, Australia, is big, luxurious and, oh yeah, different. How “different” are we talking about? Just look at the darn thing! This remarkable house (which is called Alkira) is part…
  • Kawasaki W650 Superrench by Angry Lane is a Speedway Stunner

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life One of the most popular motorcycle customizing motifs these days seems to be the flat-track speedway racer. You know what we’re talking about, right? Low slung bikes bereft of bodywork and fitted with racing number plates on the front and sides, mixing it up on dirt ovals up to one mile in circumference? Yes, those. It turns out interest in the speedway aesthetic has made it all the way to Hong Kong, where a shop called Angry Lane built the custom Kawasaki you see here. It’s called Superrench, and it’s based on a 2000 Kawasaki W650. But instead of…

Of course, as more Masers make their way onto the world’s roads, there will be more and more people wanting tuned ones. That’s where companies like G&S Exclusive come into play.

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The thing we love about the folks behind Confederate Motorcycles (aside from their proclivity for naming their bikes after American World War II fighter planes) is how they manage to combine stunning artistry without hindering functionality. You could spend hours poring over the stylish, novel detailing on a Confederate bike, but then that would leave you with less time to fire it up and go for a ride. And that conundrum is about to become even more confounding, with the introduction of the G2 P51 Combat Fighter. The G2 in the name, FYI, is shorthand for…

    You wouldn’t think a former school teacher could have owned so many rare and exceptional cars in his life. Gary, though, is different. I met Gary, a 72-year-old retiree, at his home on Priest Lake in Coolin, Idaho. My family went to escape the Washington wildfires and rented his home on the beach. As we sat near the water and discussed life, we discovered a common love: cars. Gary, it turns out, also dabbled in the buying real estate during his teaching career and amassed a small fortune that he used to invest in cars. One investment turned out to be a silly mistake, but the others…

  • Transmissions: With So Many Numbers, How Do You Choose?

    Once upon a time automotive transmissions were simple things. Three-on-the-tree was a popular manual transmission mounted on the steering wheel through the early ‘70s. Automatic transmissions hit their stride in the ‘50s and have become ubiquitous to the point that they can be found in more than 90 percent of vehicles in America. That helps explain, in part, why manufacturers offer such a variety of automatic transmissions. Also driving their development has been a need for greater fuel economy as automakers struggle to hit a corporate average fuel economy of 54.5 miles per gallon by…

    Dear Chevrolet, I’m embarrassed for you. I watched your new advertisement for the Silverado, and I can only shake my head and wonder what you were thinking. It’s a great truck. It’s a beautiful truck. It’s a truck that has powered the American legacy for many decades. But it’s also a dying truck. Not to say the Silverado will lose the sales race to Ford and Ram and be discontinued. It won’t. But the Silverado, in its current form, won’t last much longer.

    When I was nothing but a gleam in my father’s eye, he raced his 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7, with the 390 cubic-inch Ford V8, against anything that was up for the challenge. Dad raced Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes, Chargers, and virtually all other muscle cars that were around in the late ’60s and early ’70s. He didn’t win all of those impromptu races, but he had fun and knew exactly what to expect when challenged by one of the familiar American cars. Then something strange happened. A small Japanese car wanted to race. Dad revved his engine, and the two cars bolted ahead.

    If you own a caravan there are a lot of things to consider when purchasing your next car. So how do you go about picking your touring tow car? The first thing to consider is what you want from a car when it won’t be towing your caravan. Will it be used for quick trips to the shops and the school run? A 4×4 is great for loading up with kids and shopping but it is not an economical day-to-day car. Do you want something easy to park or do you want something that can effortlessly tow heavy loads? Always make sure that you have a good estimate of what you caravan weighs, not empty but when…

    The redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot was developed without any prototype models. The innovative computer-driven manufacturing process saved the company several months of time and millions of dollars. As Jeff Tomko, president of Honda Manufacturing Alabama, puts it, the car was created “in a virtual world”. What does this mean? The development processes included a lot of computer simulation work and 3D printing. For instance, engineers printed a transparent panel that helped to route wires through the dashboard. This makes a great difference because to build a typical test model, the company…

The photo is blurry and low resolution, and the car is heavily camouflaged, so not much can be seen. You may notice sharp headlights, as well as the iconic horseshoe grille. However, that is just a prototype so the design may well be changed. The picture was shot at an airport in Los Angeles. Judging from this, one can suggest that the car was heading to Pebble Beach.

Although this sum is a record, it looks quite realistic if you take into consideration we are talking about a 1992 Ferrari F40 in a mint condition. There are several more reasons for this price in addition to especially good condition of the car. The total number of F40s ever made is just 1,311, and that is the last model signed personally by Enzo Ferrari. Also, it is one of the last privately owned F40 in the world.

    We shared a post on Facebook a few days ago regarding Magnus Walker's Porsche that was damaged at a Porsche event in Minneapolis. Prior to now, I had thought it was backed into but today it came out that he lost control of the vehicle with a reporter in the vehicle. No one was injured but it goes to show that you never know what will happen and that closed courses are the best place for spirited driving! See the video here at Start Tribune.

    The Tesla is a great car with great looks and it also comes with a big price tag. Yeah they start somewhere in the $60's but I believe your average Tesla purchase is around $100K. So who is buying these $100K Teslas? Well it's people like the CEO of LinkedIn who want the ability for their car to be updated with a push of a button and who can't wait to sit back and let the car drive itself! If you were the CEO of a big company, what would you be driving?

    As we welcome newcomers like the Lexus NX 200t, Mercedes-Benz GL 350 and Ford Focus ST to CarAdvice’s long-termer garage, it’s time to wave goodbye to an office fave: the little Renault Clio RS200 Sport Premium. With 5554 kilometres of action that varied from hill-stalking and behind-the-scenes camera work to daily commuting and furniture hauling, it’s fair to say this little Clio has been put through the wringer. There’s a lot to love about the smaller of Renault Australia’s hot hatches, but it’s not entirely without its quirks – perhaps a few too many for some in the…

Given that the earlier teaser image (below) showed a custom made surfboard emblazoned with Cactus M logos reinforces the fact that the new concept will try to appeal to surfers and anyone else who’s interested in casual al fresco motoring.

    We all dream of parking a brand new luxury car on the driveway. We’d love to show off the new Mercedes badge or show up to the golf course in a new Jaguar. Unfortunately, these cars are usually well out reach for the average buyer. Their price tags race into the hundreds of thousands, and even the most generous finance plan won’t cover it. When this is the case, many buyers start to glance towards the used market.

But, if you're a fan of the "Blue Oval", you might be wondering which Ford models are the best.My first encounter with a hot hatch from Ford was the iconic mk2 Fiesta XR2.

    admin

If you’ve read my reviews of either the 2015 Kia Soul ConnectPlus 1.6 CRDi (long-term) or the first-generation Soul Quantum, you’ll know that I really like this particular Kia and its turbo-diesel engine. With hybrid and electric cars starting to become popular quickly, Kia introduces its first full-production all-electric car, ignoring the hybrid route altogether, and naming it the Soul EV. Surprisingly, Kia states that they’ve been ‘engaged in EV for 30 years’, and as a test-bed in 2011 the company decided to build 2,500 electric versions of the…

    Introduction to the second generation Kia Soul When we reviewed the first-gen Soul Quantum in 2012, we liked it for the funky styling, roomy and well-spec’d cabin, a decent drive plus a competitive price. While the high-spec Quantum’s LED running lights, neat alloy wheels, blacked-out rear glass and gunmetal paint have kept that particular car still looking fairly modern, some of the range now look distinctly outmoded. The arrival of the second-generation Kia Soul in 2013 sees it benefit from completely fresh styling all-round, a 20mm longer wheelbase, a 15mm wider body, and the…

This is a tough segment with heavy competition from big manufacturers, but as this is a Lexus it’s aimed directly at the luxury end of the market, narrowing the field of rivals. Importantly, the modern NX will attract a younger slice of the market too, as aside from the CT the rest of the cars in Lexus’s range naturally appeal to a market of a what Lexus describe as a ‘younger, style-conscious [and] typically urban, active customer base.’ We were…

    Here are all the Cadillacs that were at the Staten Island car show that I went to a few weeks ago. I know the post is a little late but between editing all the photos for the guys at Legendary Muscle Auto Car Club I also shot a few videos. Something happened at this show that hasn’t really happened to us. As you know the day before the event I sent out a post advertising the Staten Island car show. Well Mike was at home in Staten Island and saw in the post that the show was in his neighborhood and he showed up with his Cadillac. We spoke for a long time about Cadillacs and he is truly a…

    From time to time I like looking at the Hemmings Classified ads and checking out what is for sale. Odds are I will be getting a Cadillac when I get back to Arizona. I was going to get one here in NY but since the cars out there are so pristine with no salt water rust I am going to wait. I am also thinking about adding a section to the site for classified ads. Some of the other websites I run have forms that could become classified ads that making one for the site is possible. Just have to figure out the logistics of it all. I have to say I get one or two emails a week asking to list a…

  • The Complete Guide to a DIY Car Tune-Up, Part 3: How to perform an oil-change

    Editor
    19 Aug 2015 | 4:00 am
    Carrying out an oil change is another essential task to keep your vehicle roadworthy.  As a result, we thought it would make a great next part of our series on carrying out your own car service at home.  Safety first: Always ensure that you wear safety glasses when working on your car: engines contain a LOT of things that you don’t want to get in your eye! Warm up your engine to help the oil contaminants drain more thoroughly. Park your vehicle on a solid, level surface and set the parking brake.  (On some vehicles, you might have to lift the front in order to gain access…

Fortunately, most of the work done during a service can actually be carried out at home by anyone who’s confident with taking the DIY approach.  As a result, we’ve decided to go through some of the major tasks on our blog.

  • Chinese smog levels force government action on polluting vehicles

    Editor
    2 Jul 2015 | 5:09 am
    China has been cracking down on high-emission transport in an effort to lower the huge amount of smog evident in its major cities. Subsequently, a vast number of scrapyards and recycling sites now contain thousands of completely abandoned buses, cars and trucks.  None of the vehicles in the scrapyards were able to meet even the most lenient of emissions standards. Reports of Beijing having over 20 times the amount of air pollution considered healthy by the World Health Organisation led to the initiative: it’s believed that vehicle emissions accounted for almost a third (31.1 per…

    Ron Rodney
    19 Aug 2015 | 3:55 pm
    There's an easy way to remember when your road tax is due This is just a quick post, not for you because I know you know this already. This is for your friends or family who may not be as smart as you. I read an article recently that said people are forgetting to renew their road tax and more people are being fined. The reason, they say, because people no longer see the tax disc they don't know when the road tax runs out. Whether that's true or not here's a simple way to make sure your friends and family don't get caught out. All you have to tell them is to go to the government site to see if…

    This Halfords story is one of the many reasons to choose one of the quality garages we recommend. The independent garages we recommend truly care about the cars they work on. And if you think this story is an isolated case, in April 2015 a Halfords mechanic was caught speeding in a customers car via the dashboard camera in the car and in 2013 Halfords got fined over £19,000 for missing repairs. Here's the latest story that first appeared in the Bristol Post. A car service sting by trading standards found "multiple failings" at a Halfords Autocentre site and led to fines and costs totalling…

    One of the many signs on the dashboard of my Volvo is flickering on and off at the moment, but I probably don’t need to worry about it. This is because I do know the real meaning (rather than the silly meanings ) of my dashboard lights and the thing that’s showing is the one for the windscreen wiper fluid. It’s only showing when I go up or down slopes, suggesting that the liquid is slopping up and down, leaving the sensor high and dry momentarily. Of course, no light on your dashboard should be ignored indefinitely and all the fluids need to be kept topped up. The last thing I want is…

Many owners have found this out already – no wonder the US car restoration industry is worth $1bn and keeps growing year after year.

    There’s a myriad of classic cars that collectors would love to get their hands on, but due to regulations, taxes and perhaps, availability, they just can’t have them. But, there’s also a vast amount of slicker and more beautiful rides that you can easily bring over stateside. The car has to be older than 25 years. If the classic automobile you’ve been eyeing on was originally manufactured more than 25 years ago, then you’re lucky. This is the first box you’ll be checking off on the standard importation form. But be sure to have any documentation to prove this. The car needs to be…

    Maniacal Looking Convertible Offers Tons of Fun It attacks the road like a menace, the scowling front end, swooping headlights and iconic split kidney grille ready to devour anything that might get in its way. Then your eye goes up a bit. The top is down, the driver’s hair is waving in the wind and the sun’s reflection is beaming off their sunglasses and illuminating a smile as wide as the open spaces where this vehicle is destined to go.

    Moving to Fuel Cells Paying Off BMW first started researching the benefits of a hydrogen-powered vehicle more than 30 years ago, focusing on using the clean energy source to power a modified internal combustion engine. Although the company had some success, including the sporty V-12 Hydrogen 7 concept vehicle in 2006, the problem with storing hydrogen for long periods of time coupled with other inefficiencies made BMW take a different approach. The German automaker is now working on a hydrogen fuel cell alternative that resembles the new hybrid i8. By using hydrogen to power an electric…

Debuted at the Geneva Auto Show, the concept car is an exercise in design and efficiency that utilizes lightweight engineering to go with a super luxury interior and technologically advanced user interface. In the vein of the new i3 and i8, the concept car is made mostly of composite material to reduce the weight and add miles per gallon.

    Most people like the idea of purchasing a shiny new car, but they hate the process. It takes forever even if you know exactly what you want to buy, largely due to all the haggling. The sticker price isn’t the price anyone expects to pay, and getting that number down takes time. When will we say goodbye to the car dealership sales experience?Unfortunately, the answer is not anytime soon. The system that’s in place right now started when automakers had no luck selling directly to the public.

  • Peugeot Sport creates the 308 Racing Cup

    27 Aug 2015 | 3:34 pm
    Peugeot's new 308 Racing Cup is destined to compete in a single-make series, various national saloon car championships and one-off endurance races. Power is provided by a 1.6 litre engine which should produce at least 303 bhp (226 kW / 308 PS) courtesy of an upgraded turbocharger taken from the 208 T16 Pikes Peak. That output is delivered to the front wheels via a six-speed sequential transmission. The suspension is based on the road-going 308's, but the ride height, toe angle and camber have all been made adjustable for track use. Similarly, the braking system gains stronger six-piston…
  • Mercedes-Benz V-Class AMG Line launched

    27 Aug 2015 | 2:27 pm
    A van-based people carrier might not be an obvious 'sporty makeover' candidate. That hasn't stopped Mercedes-Benz from creating an AMG Line package for the V-Class, though. It comprises redesigned bumpers, subtly altered sills, a small tailgate spoiler and a set of 19” seven-twin-spoke alloy wheels. Also fitted is a revised suspension set-up that has been lowered by 15 mm (0.6”) and features stiffer springs and dampers. Inside, a black headlining, brushed aluminium pedals and faux carbon fibre trim provide a suitably different ambiance. The AMG Line upgrade will be available across all…
  • 2016 Nissan NP300 Navara first view

    25 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
    Nissan has revealed the all-new European-specification NP300 Navara. Compared to its predecessor, comfort and refinement levels are claimed to be much improved, but the pick-up's off-road ability remains. There's a choice of Double Cab and King Cab versions. Interestingly, the former features a sophisticated five-link rear suspension set-up for better ride and handling, while the latter retains a simpler leaf spring arrangement. One diesel engine is being offered in two states of tune. It's a 2.3 litre, four-cylinder unit that produces either 158 bhp (118 kW / 160 PS) or, thanks to twin…
  • Confederate G2 P51 Combat Fighter launched

    23 Aug 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Confederate Motorcycles has a reputation for producing stripped-back bikes with uncompromising sculptural looks. Its latest creation, the G2 P51 Combat Fighter, clearly continues the same ethos. Based on the firm's CX4 architecture, the new G2 boasts a monocoque frame constructed from aerospace-grade billet aluminium. Such an approach maximises rigidity, as does making the intake box, manifold and fuel tank structural elements. Another benefit is a fairly manageable 227 kg (500 lbs) kerb weight. Naturally the all-aluminium air- and oil-cooled engine is a V-twin. With a displacement of 2,160…
  • 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé unveiled

    18 Aug 2015 | 3:57 pm
    As expected, the latest generation C-Class family is getting a two-door variant. The new model, which goes on sale in December, resembles a shrunken S-Class Coupé from some angles. A high beltine, a low roof height, a shallow rear screen angle and a stretched bonnet all contribute to the C-Class Coupé's distinctive proportions. Adding to the looks are a prominent front grille and deep swage lines that run along the flanks. The overall result is striking, if not particularly handsome. For a cosmetically sportier appearance, an AMG Line package is also going to be offered. This comes with…

    Are you thinking about buying a BMW but aren’t sure which to get? Don’t rule out these underrated vehicles. BMW 228i Not many people consider buying the 228i, but I think it’s easily one of the best BMW models we’ve seen in the last 20 years or so. It’s a surprisingly nimble and attentive drive. It’s much more graceful and elegant than most BMW cars. This might be part of the reason why a lot of people didn’t buy the car. But they made a big mistake by rejecting the 228i. Luckily, they can now be found at great prices. So, don’t listen to all the negative press the car gets.

    You might not think it but the likelihood of a diesel owner putting petrol in their car is high! One reason for that is because the filling station nozzle for petrol is narrower than a diesel one. That means it’s easy to insert a petrol nozzle into a diesel filler neck, but not vice-versa. Still, that’s little comfort to you if you’ve gone and filled up with petrol in your diesel vehicle! By now, you are perhaps wondering what you should do next.

  • Changing a Brake Calliper

    Justin Smith
    7 Aug 2015 | 3:10 am
    Brake callipers are the assemblies on your wheel that apply pressure to the disc rotor. Due to the high levels of heat and friction created in the arrangement these parts are especially prone to fatigue and wear. Your owner’s manual should provide you with a service window that tells you when these parts should be approaching the end of their lifespan and will need checking and replacing. Fortunately changing your brake callipers is a fairly simple task that can be completed by someone with a modicum of mechanical knowledge. It is very important that you give yourself the right amount of…
  • How to Replace a Car’s Rear Bumper

    Justin Smith

    One of the biggest dangers when driving is other road users. When you’ve stopped at a junction no-one wants to hear that crunching sound that indicates a good rear-ending from the vehicle behind. At low speeds your rear bumper can absorb the shock and strain of a collision, but often it will take tremendous damage in the impact. In such cases you can quickly and easily buy a spare rear bumper and replace yourself with very little mechanical knowledge. This is a relatively easy job and one that can be performed with only the most basic of mechanical knowledge. To complete the task at hand…

    Even though the leaf springs exists on cars and most heavy vehicles, the technology is lurking from centuries and is one of the earliest forms of suspension. Leaf springs are long, thin plates attached to the frame of a trailer that rest above or below the trailer’s axle. They are slightly curved in shape, looks similar to metal bow from an archery set, without the string.   They are available in different varieties. There are monoleaf springs, or single-leaf springs, which will have a one plate of spring steel. These are usually thick in the middle and taper out toward the end,…

    The cooling system in your vehicle is one of the important parts of the vehicle for smooth ride. All elements of the cooling system, like radiator, radiator fan, hoses and thermostat must be in good condition to make sure that the engine does not overheat. The radiator fan is used to cool the radiator and stop the car from overheating. If the fan on your vehicle is not working properly, you may take risk to drive for a short distance, but you must repair/ replace according to its condition.

    Several spring types work on multiple and different vehicles. Some springs are designed to bear heavy loads, some are built for performance and some are built for ride quality. There are springs that are factory installed and others that are available aftermarket. In all situations, springs are combined with either a shock or strut to absorb bumps in the road.  Coil Springs: Coil springs sit separately from the shock in a coiled shape. This type of spring is primarily found in older cars and in heavy trucks. Located on the front suspension of the vehicle between the upper and lower control…

Each wishbone or arm has two mounting points to the chassis and one joint at the knuckle. The shock absorber and coil spring mount to the wishbones to control vertical movement. Double wishbone designs allow the engineer to carefully control the motion of the wheel throughout suspension travel, controlling such parameters as camber angle, caster angle, toe pattern, roll center height, scrub…

    Vincent Philip
    19 Aug 2015 | 2:18 am
     Fan Clutch Overview On cars with engines having belt-driven cooling fans, a fan clutch exists to save energy and control noise. The fan clutch disconnects the engine’s cooling fan when there is no need of extra cooling and when the vehicle is operating at normal temperature. The fan clutch also reduces noise by slowing down or disengaging the fan at high way speeds, and some even help speed engine warm up during cold weather. Reasons & Symptoms Of Failure: 1) Noise: Fan clutch produces noise under the following normal conditions: When the clutch is at it’s maximum cooling…

One day out on the track he broke an oil line but despite the oil dumping out he drove the car back to the pits. The engine survived and went on to contest the final two races of the season. This convinced him of the value of MOTUL synthetic oil, a French product then little known in Canada.

    What does this mean to you? That small, intense plasma beam is extremely powerful and can cut through metal with ease. This also means it can wear out consumables. We get calls from time to time about customers that have had issues with their plasma cutters. The symptoms are often that the plasma cutter won't initiate an arc on the metal, or the arc will start and stop erratically while you're cutting. I decided to put together a few causes for those sort of issues. Hopefully one of them can save you time when diagnosing an issue with your plasma cutter.
  • Shaved Fender Vents on 08-10 Super Duty

    Shaved Fender Vents on 08-10 Super Duty The fastest way to make your vehicle stand out is with exterior modifications, but in order for them to look good it must be done the proper way.  Adding new pieces such as wheels, tires, bumpers, etc. is one method but it can easily be over done and just look tacky.  How many times have you seen a car with parts that just don't belong? I've seen way too many.  The other, and sometimes more difficult method is to remove parts that were originally there.  Not only does it make the vehicle look more seamless it also separates it from all the others.
  • Step up your Hammer Game! Using Intermediate Body hammers and Dollies

    13 Aug 2015 | 7:45 am
    Back when cars were made of heavy metal and had lots of beautiful curves guys took the time to repair a fender rather than just replace it. Any good metal worker will tell you that you need to match the hammer and dolly as close as possible with the shape of your panel you're working on. When you're working on a curvy car like something from the late 1930's through the 1950's you will be hard pressed to find a flat panel on the vehicle. This means that you will need to use tools to match. Back in those days the selection of specialty hammers were vast, some being specifically used for one…
  • Build a chassis/fixture Table on a budget

    7 Aug 2015 | 6:34 am
    In a effort to make my life easier I decided I would build a table that I could build and modify chassis on in the future. I only had a few simple rules; it needed to be mobile, I needed to be able to easily level it, and it needed to be AFFORDABLE. If you haven't checked, the metal required to build a heavy fabrication or chassis table new is big bucks. I'd rather save that cash for my project cars and repurpose some metal from my local scrap metal yard.

    When dropping the kids off at school everyday, it’s easy to pick up some not-so-safe habits while avoiding the long car line. You may be conscientious about driving in a school zone, but it’s important for parents to remember their cars can become safety hazards in other ways as well. Some examples of these habits include: Double parking while getting children out of the backseat Crossing a child in the middle of the street, rather than in the crosswalk Allowing a child to exit a car on the side of traffic instead of the curb Although these may seem like small ideas, any extra…

    With all of your travels this summer, please don’t neglect your tires. The mix of long miles and high temperatures can cause some serious damage, and you don’t want to find out the extent of that damage while on vacation. It’s a good idea to check your tires before you hit the road on your next road trip. Over the Fourth of July, AAA responded to over 5,000 tire-related rescue calls. They recommend the T.I.R.E. method to to ensure you’re doing it correctly. Tread and Pressure: Ensuring that your tires are inflated to the recommended pressure will guarantee that they…
  • What to Do When a Tree Falls on Your Car

    Mike Mardinly
    26 Jun 2015 | 7:50 am
    After that recent storm, Delaware County has seen a lot of damage from trees falling. Even those of us who were lucky enough to escape property damage were wondering what we have done if had been us. That being said, we decided to compile a blog post to make sure that if a tree does ever fall on your car, you’re prepared. When you first hear that tree limb hit your vehicle, instinct might tell you to remove it and check out the damage yourself. However, that is not a good idea. The damage is done, and you could hurt yourself or cause more damage by trying to pull down the limb.

    So it’s been quite a while since you stepped foot in a Driver’s Ed class. Aside from the more obvious road rules, it’s easy to forget specifics about traffic laws. With many schools beginning class this week, we want to make sure you know all the traffic laws relating to school zones and driving around a school bus. Just remember that each day 1.5 million school kids are transported on PA roads, so it’s important to follow the laws and keep children safe.

  • Millennials More Likely to Lease Cars

    Emmett Young
    28 Jul 2015 | 11:55 am
    According to a study by Edmunds.com, millennials are the American generation most likely to lease a vehicle rather than buy. In the entire industry, leasing accounts for an average of 26.7% of new car purchases each year. When it came to millennials, leasing accounted for 29% of new car purchases, a 46% increase for this age group over the last five years. Leasing gives millennials, and other generations, the opportunity to drive a luxury car while sticking to a stricter budget. Rather than focusing on long-term financial benefit, many are accepting that funds will be limited for some time…

In most cases, a great deal of preparation goes into booking hotels, making dining reservations, and packing the necessities while vehicle maintenance may be the last thing on your mind. Although preventative maintenance is likely the least fun thing on your “To do” list, it’s still a vital step in beginning your summer. According to AAA, 1,500 motorists in our area required roadside assistance over Memorial Day weekend. Many of these calls were for issues that could have been avoided. The…

    Medium SUVs haven’t always had an easy ride. Sometimes they try to appeal to everyone but end up appealing to nobody. So, what can we expect from the 2015 Hyundai Tucson? Practical Interiors As always, Hyundai gets the interiors just right. They’re not fancy or overblown; they’re just right. Practicality is the key focus for Hyundai, and that’s not a bad thing. The seats are comfortable, and the leg and headroom are more than adequate. You can easily fit five very tall people in the car and still have plenty of room left over. That’s how much space the Tucson gives you. Loading and…

    An Australian startup named EVX is looking to end range anxiety once and for all by developing a science fiction-esque electric coupe called Immortus that’s fitted with 75 square-feet’s worth of solar panels on the roof, the trunk lid, and the hood. The solar panels generate enough electricity to continuously keep the battery pack topped-up if the driver holds a steady speed of approximately 40 mph. Of course, infinite range only works if the sun is out, meaning Seattle residents, Scottish nationals, and those who live in an area where the word “monsoon” is often heard…

Not that that’s a bad thing. Mini have brought us some of the most exciting small cars on the planet. Not least the Mini Cooper S and the long-awaited five-door Mini last year.

    Share this Post Kia presented the first official photos of the new Sportage’s progressive and attractive exterior from every angle. The ‘face’ is perhaps the part that went through the biggest change on the upgraded model. Its headlamps are no longer integrated with the grille; instead, they sweep back along the outer edges of the more sharply-detailed bonnet and bolder wheel arches. The Sportage’s lower, wider ‘tiger-nose’ grille, immediately shouts out Kia’s design identity and contributes to a more imposing appearance. The smooth and slim…

    Google’s dictionary defines “familiarity” as “the quality of being well known”, or “recognisability based on long or close association”. If there is one vehicle that the general public is probably familiar with in the “sports sedan” category, it has got to be the BMW 3 Series. Ever since the first generation 3-series was launched in 1975, the 3 Series has been BMW’s best-selling model globally, accounting for around 30% of the brand’s annual total sales. It’s no wonder then, that there are so many of them around. However in the last couple of years, much to the chagrin…

    That’s the question that these two silver Corvette drivers are asking. The C6 has a D1 Procharger while the C5 has nitrous. A few nice-looking burnouts later, we finally get to see the answer to this age-old question. Looks like what both cars really needed, at both points, was the most important modification of all: the driver. On the second race, the C5 edges out its opponent—but the C6 finally pulls ahead, and takes the lead. Too soon, junior. A Camaro bored out to 408 cu in. later joins in the fun. And even though it loses to the C6, its occupants are all smiles.   The post…

LEDs deliver maximum light using minimal power, making them perfect for use with 12V automotive systems. Light-emitting diodes are completely different than traditional, filament-based incandescent and halogen lights. Unlike old-school incandescent (Edison-style) bulbs, with LED lights, there’s no filament to burn out or heat up. In fact, these tiny little lights aren’t actually lights at all…

    SALEM, Ore. – The latest ‘thing’ in headlights is getting HIDs, or High Intensity Discharge lights. Cody Hoopman spent $200 dollars to make the conversion from his halogen headlights. “The crystal blue, from my experience, seems to cut through the fog a lot better.” says Hoopman. But at night, some of those lights can be blinding in the darkness. Lights so bright, some drivers like Allen Crosby of Salem believe they’re dangerous when trying to share the road. “I had a large SUV on my rear bumper burning holes in my rearview mirrors with two, intense bright…

    Happy Mustang Monday everyone! Did you all have a good weekend? Mine was great but too fast. We got to spend the day at the ballpark yesterday where I took in an Orioles game with my son, dad, and grandfather. The O’s lost their fourth straight to the Twins… even after being up 3-2 in the top of the 9th with 2 outs. They blew the game with a string of errors, but we got to see 12 innings of great (but very hot) baseball. Good times for all (except the Orioles)! On the way I saw plenty of Mustangs, including two 2015’s – a green and a black. The drivers could probably…
  • How to Convince My Wife that Minivans Aren’t Tombstones

    Scott Huntington
    19 Aug 2015 | 11:09 am
    I’ve got a major dilemma. My family desperately needs the space upgrade that a minivan can provide and my wife refuses to drive one. To her minivans are the “mom jeans” of transportation and she is not ready to let go of her low-rise denim just yet. I see her point, and I feel it too. In a way it’s like buying a minivan is buying your own tombstone and saying “yep, I’m officially  old.” The practical side of me is winning out though, and so now I need to convince her that buying a minivan is not putting the nail in the proverbial coffin of cool. I’m just not…

Anyway, today’s Mustang Monday comes from Reddit user Kdryan who showcases their 2013 green and black Mustang. This was my favorite color combination growing up. I’d go for yellow and black now but this is still sweet.       Bonus:     I’d take it! The post Mustang Monday on a Tuesday – Green and Black appeared first on Off the Throttle.
