  • New Honda Pilot vs Grand Cherokee (warning…)

    I plan to buy a GC, but this points out some disadvantages. Basically, the new 2016 Honda Pilot is bigger than the GC but weighs an astonishing 1000 lbs less. Thus, with 80 fewer horsepower and a 2mpg advantage, the V6 Pilot is faster to 60mph than the V8 GC. I understand: the Pilot is basically a minivan at this point with little off-road ability, and that the GC’s off-road capabilities add weight. But the Grand Cherokee, in spite of its Mercedes-based platform, is starting show its age while next-generation SUVs show the advantages of the latest efficiency measures. I really want a V8…

    “Wow, I’ll bet that gets great fuel economy on the highway!” is the last thing that most (normal) people think when seeing a Stingray cruise down the street. And yet, it’s true. The Corvette’s long been known (by those who know) to deliver solid MPGs when conservatively driven out on the open road. At long last, I had the opportunity to test it. The positively scrumptious 6.2 liter V8 in the 2015 C7 Corvette pumps out 455 horsepower and 460 foot pounds of torque. It features cylinder deactivation and an Eco-mode (for fuel economy, of course) and can be fitted with a seven-speed…

    MONTEREY, CA – There are many digital marketing success articles out there, but not many focus on simply what not to do – which can be equally as important. While most modern businesses should have digital marketing campaigns to acquire business, many will not understand whether the marketing is working, or even what kind of value they should be seeking from each channel. One digital marketing mistake to avoid is getting too caught up in the results of marketing tactics used, and not confirming that those results align to a business strategy. A strategy would be comprised of an…

  • Report: Amazon reportedly paid $250 million to snag Jeremy Clarkson and gang

    admin
    31 Jul 2015 | 8:23 pm
    If you’ve been living under a rock lately and are a fan of Top Gear UK, some big news happened with the three hosts, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May, and producer Andy Wilman. The group officially signed a deal with Amazon Original streaming services for an apparent lump sum of $250 million, according to Financial Times. This totally makes sense for the three most watched TV hosts for any factual show in the world, plus producer genius, Andy Wilman. When you’re that popular, someone’s obviously willing to pay. At the end, Amazon won the bid, beating out…

    The new BMW M2 is the next biggest thing to come from Munich and to make sure BMW’s staying in line with catering to the driving enthusiast, 2-Series enthusiast side 2Addicts reportedly received the scoop to hear confirmation on the M2’s drivetrain options. The new M2 seeks to follow in the footsteps of the original, but limited production 1-Series M Coupe, and will be produced as a normal M model, unlike the former 1-Series version. That means power is expected to be supplied by a 3.0L TwinPower turbocharged inline six with around 365hp and 343 lb-ft of twist with an overboost…
  • Photo Leak: Is this the new Audi Q6 Concept?

    admin
    31 Jul 2015 | 4:52 pm
    While BMW has been pointlessly charging more for less with their stylized X5 that we know as the X6, Mercedes-Benz just recently revealed their competitor for the first time with the GLE Coupe. That of course leaves the third German rival without a direct competitor to the X6, Audi. Though due to exponential demand increases, Audi immediately hopped on the luxury sports crossover bandwagon with their research and development. And the apparent, soon-to-be result is this Audi Q6, which was supposedly leaked in concept form ahead of its Frankfurt Motor Show. As anticipated, it looks like a…
  • Report: The Cadillac XTS will be sold until 2018 or 2019

    31 Jul 2015 | 4:40 pm
    Cadillac maybe working hard to shed their reputation for being the top fleet choice for high-end black-cabs, airport limousines, and even hearses. But they still are a provider to that market and essentially, that’s what the XTS is for. It may not be a strong seller for the main consumer market, but there are still strong sales in China as well as fleet customers and as a result, Cadillac’s planning to keep the front-wheel drive XTS alive until 2018 or 2019. When compared to the first six months of this year, Cadillac sold more XTSes than CTSes, but then again this is most likely…
  • Report: The new Porsche Boxster’s four-banger should be pretty potent

    admin
    31 Jul 2015 | 4:13 pm
    CAR in the UK received some P-Car news in regards to the rumored four-banger mills destined to show up in near-future Porsche Boxster models. In the age of downsizing and lesser cylinder counters, Porsche has supposedly been working on some new boxer fours, which could render the typical use of Zuffenhausen’s flat-six, obsolete. And recently, CAR heard the new fours could produce as much as 240hp from a single-turbo 2.0L setup, while the more expensive and powerful S variant could produce as much as 300 from a turbocharged 2.5L flat-four. The high-end GTS should be pushed up to a…

    The Truth About Cars

  • Automotive News Late, Wrong On Cadillac XTS De-Livery News

    Mark Stevenson
    1 Aug 2015 | 9:00 am
    Automotive News reported earlier this month the death of the Cadillac XTS — expected to happen when the new, range-topping CT6 arrived at dealers — has been stayed until 2018 or 2019 thanks to the livery market and sales in China, sourcing “three people familiar with General Motors’ plans.” Sorry, Mike Colias, but you are about 3-and-a-half months too late and have the narrative all wrong. The CT6 is the first model in Cadillac’s lineup to sport the brand’s new nomenclature and will also trigger similar changes to other models; the next Cadillac to be…
  • Don’t Buy a 2015 Buick Regal

    Mark Stevenson
    1 Aug 2015 | 8:00 am
    If you are looking for a new midsize car to add to your driveway and the Buick Regal is on your shortlist, you might want to wait a few months. According to a dealer communique sent out by Buick head Duncan Aldred, the Regal will receive a massive price cut for 2016. Even the top-trim Regal GS will have its price slashed to make it more competitive as an older offering in a crowded segment. The letter, sent yesterday, outlines the changes to the Regal as it struggles toward the end of its lifecycle. The Regal is being simplified and attractively priced to appeal to a broader share of midsize…

The qualifications for getting the free car: Refer 10 buyers by Oct. 31 and be the first in your “region” to do so. Turns out “region” doesn’t mean what we think it does. According to a Tesla spokesman, “region” in this case means “country.” As in, apparently, one (1) Model X will be awarded to a single (1) person in the U.S. for referring 10 new Model…

When I was in an automotive journalist internship in Belgium, I used to drive press test cars at car dealers. One day I was picking up a Volkswagen Golf in Brussels and when I left the dealer’s garage I saw a yellow car at the gas station. I recognized it as a Ferrari so I stopped to take pictures but I couldn’t tell which Ferrari model it was. But I fell in love with it. After searching, I saw it was a Ferrari 250 GT SWB,…

    It may seem like a no-brainer for a series such as Red Bull Global Rallycross to bring their bombastic brand of motorsport to the traditional center of the American automobile, Detroit – but after a few failed attempts, they finally made it happen. What’s more, the .757 mile course – one of GRC’s longer, faster courses – was set up on Belle Isle, incorporating part of the Grand Prix track which IndyCars more commonly zoom around. The counterclockwise course wrapped around the fountain in four turns, with the Joker Lap a quick turn around the fountain’s north side…

    Mostert did it easy in the first session on the hard tyre, beating the entire field by 0.247s – quite remarkable given that the Top 17 was covered by less than a second. “The guys have given me a brilliant car,” he said. “When you start the first practice you know if you’re kind of on to a good thing. I didn’t want to get too sure, but I knew we had a pretty good car this weekend ... Keep reading

    The Prodrive Racing Australia driver rocketed to the top mid-way through the session, replacing team-mate David Reynolds in P1 with a 1m09.563s lap. Despite a late soft tyre charge from Nissan’s Todd Kelly, Mostert held on to lead the session, with Kelly second ahead of Volvo’s Scott McLaughlin. Reynolds ended up fourth, ahead of Erebus driver Will Davison, who popped up late on the ... Keep reading

    Reigning Bathurst 1000 winner Chaz Mostert has committed to Prodrive Racing Australia until the end of 2019. Mostert’s future has been a hot topic up and down pit-lane this season.

    Paul Riegler
    30 Jul 2015 | 7:36 am
    With the start of the 2016 model year, Volkswagen will offer purchasers of almost all of its vehicles the driver-assistance features that were previously only available in its top models. Saying it wants to democratize the availability of driver-assistance technology, Volkswagen will offer such items as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, park assist, forward collision warning and autonomous emergency braking, as either standard or optional features in the upcoming model year. Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert will be standard on the CC V6 4Motion Executive, Beetle,…
  • Audi, BMW, Daimler to Buy Nokia’s Digital Mapping Service

    21 Jul 2015 | 10:48 am
    Audi, BMW, and Daimler, three of Germany’s largest luxury automakers, will purchase Finnish communications company Nokia’s digital mapping service, Nokia Here, for approximately €2.5 billion ($2.71 billion). The news was first reported in Manager Magazin, which said that the deal is likely to close by the end of the month. Nokia’s high-definition real-time digital map data is essential to the development of self-driving vehicles and other driver assistance systems. After the transaction has closed, the three German car companies intend to invite other car companies to acquire stakes…
  • Diesel Fuel Prices Drop for Fourth Week in a Row

    Paul Riegler
    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. Meanwhile, the average price per gallon for gasoline was down by $0.023 to $2.812, according to the EIA, a…

    BMW Welt MUNICH At the BMW Welt in Munich, BMW announced the premier of the sixth-generation 7 Series sedan. Slated to arrive in U.S. showrooms in the fall, two gasoline-powered models will be available, a 740i and a 750i xDrive. Diesel variants in other markets including Germany will include a 730d and a 730Ld. A 740e plug-in hybrid model will also be available. The new 7er makes extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic in the structure of the passenger cell. It also introduces what BMW says is a world first, Gesture Control, a feature that allows specific hand movements made near…
  • The Road to Philadelphia – the BMW 535d’s Final Journey and Review

    1 May 2015 | 5:36 pm
    George Washington Bridge It feels like only yesterday that we took delivery of the Moonstone Metallic BMW 535d in Munich at the BMW Welt. The 5er was something we had waited for with great anticipation, after having spent over two years with BMW’s first clean diesel sedan, the 335d, which was followed by the X5 xdrive35d and the BMW ActiveHybrid 5. The 535d was first announced for the U.S. market in early 2013, shortly after BMW debuted the 328d sedan and wagon.  It wasn’t alone in its market segment: Audi had just started selling the A6 TDI, and Mercedes-Benz had been offering an…

  • Digital Marketing tips for non-failure

    Brandon Travis
    31 Jul 2015 | 10:44 am
    MONTEREY, CA – There are many digital marketing success articles out there, but not many focus on simply what not to do – which can be equally as important. While most modern businesses should have digital marketing campaigns to acquire business, many will not understand whether the marketing is working, or even what kind of value they should be seeking from each channel. One digital marketing mistake to avoid is getting too caught up in the results of marketing tactics used, and not confirming that those results align to a business strategy. A strategy would be comprised of an…
  • Planning – and Accounting – in Advance of a Sale

    Ryan Kerrigan
    29 Jul 2015 | 12:02 pm
    For dealers considering a sale, or even just thinking about one over the horizon, it’s a good idea to start planning well in advance. After all, the sale of your business is likely one of the most important transactions of your career. It is well worth the time required to prepare. As with any sale, you want to clean up your asset before you go to market. This is true when you are selling your house, your car, and it is certainly true when selling your business. This applies, in particular, to your financials. A common issue we face when advising on a sale is very messy dealership…
  • To VDP or Not to VDP: The Perils of Deep Linking

    Eric Brown
    29 Jul 2015 | 11:56 am
    So lately the blogosphere, conference agendas, and the ongoing quest for online dominance has been overrun with talk about the mighty VDP (vehicle detail page) and its magical ability to turn Internet users into car buyers. If only that were true… True, there are multiple studies that show a correlation between the number of VDP views a vehicle gets and the number of resulting sales of these vehicles. However things change, and to that fact just a couple years ago the bounce rate on the VDP was half that of the dealership website home page. Today, the bounce rate on the VDP is now more than…

    So, I’m working with this sweet Chevy store located in a quaint and stable northeastern community. Typical 10 techs, a couple of writers, a seasoned and ex-tech service manager, and a stable boy as needed. The manager and I are discussing that the one master and highly productive tech wants to start his own shop, which considering the general skill levels available otherwise, would put the manager’s garage in a bad state. The good news was that this kingpin was interested in moving up to some type of position which would put him in control of the shop. During an interview, I sensed that…

I believe it’s the best profession in the world and that it offers more opportunity than any other career. What other job can you get today where you can choose to give yourself a raise by simply improving your skills and working a little bit harder? To keep improving and giving yourself a raise each year though, you have to train like a professional athlete right? After all, perfect practice makes perfect doesn’t it?

  • 2015 Corvette Stingray – Highway MPG Testing

    mpg-o-editor
    17 Jul 2015 | 12:47 pm
    “Wow, I’ll bet that gets great fuel economy on the highway!” is the last thing that most (normal) people think when seeing a Stingray cruise down the street. And yet, it’s true. The Corvette’s long been known (by those who know) to deliver solid MPGs when conservatively driven out on the open road. At long last, I had the opportunity to test it. The positively scrumptious 6.2 liter V8 in the 2015 C7 Corvette pumps out 455 horsepower and 460 foot pounds of torque. It features cylinder deactivation and an Eco-mode (for fuel economy, of course) and can be fitted with a seven-speed…
  • 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Delivers the MPGs

    mpg-o-editor
    14 Jun 2015 | 7:05 am
    There are a lot of folks that think a four-cylinder engine is just about the worst thing you could drop between the fenders of a pony car. I’m not one of them (anymore). While I was skeptical initially, after spending a week in the saddle of an EcoBoost Mustang, I’ve come around to the idea. A traditional muscle car must always have a V8 under the hood. But a pony car can be wicked fun (and fast), without traditional muscle. I put a Guard Green EcoBoost Mustang Premium to a week-long test. It was fitted with the six-speed automatic, and 201A – Equipment Group (which includes…

    We’ve all been there. You have basic transportation needs and a budget tighter than a screw cap on a cheap bottle of wine. An inexpensive used car can help you meet your needs without resorting to taking out a high-interest loan. Knowing which car to buy is key, but the answer is too often locked away. We’re here to cut through the bombardment of advertisements and get right to the facts. When you buy the right cheap used car it will set you free.

  • 30 MPG Highway in a 5.0-Liter 2015 Mustang GT?

    mpg-o-editor
    28 Apr 2015 | 3:07 pm
    Every time a Ford Mustang rolls into my driveway it feels like an old friend has come to visit. While I’ve never owned a Mustang, I’m reminded by all of the good times I’ve spent riding in pony cars and the great folks I’ve come to know along the way. So when the chance to test the 2015 Mustang GT appeared, there was no hesitation. After putting over ten thousand miles on Slambo (my 1999 Honda Civic HX fuel economy project car), I was more than ready to drive something with a healthy dose of horsepower under the hood. The 2015 Mustang is available with three engines:…
  • Testing Ethanol Free Gasoline

    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…

    It’s been a while since we’ve featured a Carspotters’ Video Challenge. This time we’re showing the police chase scene of the movie The Driver (1978), a cult classic movie whose iconic C-10 pick-up truck vs. Firebird Trans Am lent itself very well to one of my first Carspotters’ Video Challenge. On the same video account on which I’ve found that particular chase -as well as others- I also found this chase scene related to the movie, previously not included on said video account. It too received a 1980s-inspired synth track -Elimination, from the album Activation, by Danger Mode-…

I threw a question out there it if the commute ever got old and readers responded with a resounding ‘no’ plus explanation. Inspired by it, I now give you the East coast version Aside from no then/now photos, this time the bridge is unknown, at least to me, and NYC has a lot of bridges.  If you can identify the bridge, what’s the view/commute/experience/etc. like? If it can’t be identified, no worries. See if you can identify the cars instead. --Tigerstrypes References:…

    There's a cruise-in every Thursday at the local Arby's, and I was able to break free from work this past week in time to attend. There were a few familiar faces from past cruise-ins,... ...such as the red and white Metropolitan,... ...the Tempest with the OHC straight six,... ...and the cream-colored MG. The black '53 Chevy pickup next to it was a magnificent restoration. I had a long and pleasant conversation with the owner. There seemed to be a run on red convertibles. The Ford delegation included these platform-mates in matching colors. I liked the engine-turned dash in the…

    They are as associated with London as Big Ben. They have a reputation for being as clean as a crumpet plate. And they are as recognizable as Parliament. And perhaps they should be, since they have been around for quite the while. Perhaps the best-known is the Austin FX4, which was made from 1958 to 1994. They also have a reputation for being all-black, but they do come in many colours. In fact, there are no rules and/or regulations requiring any of them to be black. They can also carry five passengers in comfort, and can turn on a dime.  They had diesel engines of various sizes and…

    We live in an era of manufactured outrage. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't hear about someone being raked over the coals for an insensitive tweet, or a business being boycotted because of the owner's political leanings. Some might be justified, and some is just anger for the sake of anger. What happens below, in my humble opinion, might just be an instance of the latter. The clothing company Rag & Bone wanted to drum up a bit of excitement for their new Fall/Winter 2015 line debuting at Fashion Week. In anticipation of this campaign, the company and presumably their…

  • Will Porsche Break The 200,000 Vehicle Delivery Mark This Year?

    Pepper Girl
    30 Jul 2015 | 10:56 am
    In late 2013 Porsche announced ambitious plans to sell 200,000 vehicles annually by 2018. At first blush, it seemed like a pretty lofty goal. Now, not even two years later it looks like Porsche could hit that goal three years early. In 2014, Porsche delivered 189,850 new cars to customers all over the world. Now, half way through 2015, we've learned that Porsche has had its best half-year in the company's history. Porsche delivered 113,984 new vehicles in the first six months of 2015. That's a 30% increase over the same period in the prior year. So, assuming the market stays strong, demand…

    It certainly makes sense to convert old mail trucks into ice cream trucks – neither has to move fast, but they do have to keep running and moving all day long; they both have to haul their own particular loads; and they both were designed to navigate suburban and city streets. Which is why, come to think of it, we’re surprised we don’t see more old mail Jeeps like this 1966 Jeep FJ-6 for sale on Hemmings.com refurbished and converted into ice cream trucks. From the seller’s description: One of a kind ice cream truck! This 1966 Jeep FJ6-A has been converted to an ice…

Fortunately, Don took plenty of pictures of that process and posted them to his site. * With the Pininfarina X, the Gordon Diamond and a handful of others mentioned in passing, we thought we’d cataloged all the known diamond-layout cars built, but leave it to Michael Banovsky at BCOTD to come up with another, the 1974 Michelotti Lem, an electric city car. * Like the Beetle, the Citroen 2CV…

It might not set any speed records, but with the four-speed it should make for an entertaining drive.

Editor’s Note: Watchdog group ProPublica recently published an in-depth analysis of the debate to raise federal fuel tax as a symbol of Washington dysfunction. The piece points out that the fuel tax has not been raised in 20-plus years, resulting in chronic highway funding shortfalls. It also points out that federal politicians would rather do almost anything else than go on-record as supporting a fuel tax. As a result they propose alternative…

  • New Mitsubishi Challenger: 2016 4X4 SUV Revealed At ‘Bangkok Grand Motor Sale’

    1 Aug 2015 | 10:47 am
    Mitsubishi has today lifted the covers from its new Challenger SUV at the 2015 Bangkok International Grand Motor Sale.  The third generation of the rugged 4X4 family wagon, the all-new Challenger is no ‘city-SUV’ poseur.  The new car continues the formula of the old: genuine off-road four-wheel-drive performance, but with the versatility, finish and comfort of a lighter-duty SUV. There are no surprises with the styling. A series of leaked photos and i... Read more The Motor Report is Australia's fastest growing auto website. Click through to read the full…
  • London To Clamp Down On Hoon Supercar Owners

    1 Aug 2015 | 9:06 am
    In news that will hardly come as a shock to Australian motorists, London’s Chelsea and Kensington councils are looking at ways to reduce the anti-social behaviour of supercar owners in the area. Similar to Australia’s own anti-hoon legislation (which varies slightly from state to state) the proposal would see certain driving behaviors banned. To most car enthusiasts, the idea of large groups of supercars gathering in your suburb probably sounds just fine. In South West Lond...

    The drip-feed of information continues for the baddest factory Mustang of them all, with Ford announcing some key info about the Shelby GT350R. Their boldest claim? That the GT350R is as quick on a racetrack as Porche’s competition-grade 911 GT3. That statement comes with a small ‘conditions apply’ caveat though. Not every racetrack, you see - for now that feat was measured at Michigan’s Grattan Raceway. The actual lap time remains a closely guarded secret fo...

That’s a good thing for people who want a Lamborghini, but not so good for people who want a Lamborghini that stands out from the herd. Fortunately, Carlex Design is ready to step into the breach. The body kit that Carlex Design has come up with manages to imbue the Gallardo with a gaggle of Aventador and Reventon styling cues. There’s also a fixed rear wing and wheels that look like they came off one of the “senior” Lambos. However, the vinyl wrap that…

Of course, it would be even more incredible if it was also available with a folding convertible hardtop like the 458 from which it’s evolved (and the McLaren 650S, for that matter) to make it a true all-season supercar (minus AWD, of course).

Yes there are cars that have better sound but this is the sound of wind, power and engine combined. It is indeed very hard to describe the sound of this car. But is just superb. How fast it is?

However, the new Jaguar F-Pace hasn’t officially been unveiled to the public yet. That’s slated to happen in September when it makes its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

    It’s the classic all-you-can-eat dilemma. You’ve put down your 12 dollars, and now it’s time to see just how much food you can get for your money. This is the epitome of a lose-lose situation: The restaurant surely lost money (thanks to your gluttony), and you feel terrible after having eaten 13 mediocre fried chicken legs.

I could end that sentence by adding, “if you’re a Porsche fan,” but honestly, this change signifies something that’s happening industrywide. Only Porsche purists will feel its immediate impact. These are the same people who chastised the Cayenne as blasphemy, pooh-poohed the Panamera for diluting the brand, and fought outright outrage when Porsche moved to liquid-cooled engines back in 1999. Things change in the auto world, much to the chagrin of people who like them to stay the same. What’s this newest…

    What engine does yours have? In 2013, my wife purchased a new Subaru Legacy. She wanted the top-of-the-line Limited model with leather, EyeSight, Adaptive Cruise Control, roof racks, and so much more. She found the car she wanted in the color she wanted and negotiated a good price. When I asked her what engine the car had, I received nothing but a blank stare. This girl knows cars. Her first car was a 1974 Porsche 911, and she can identify nearly any car on the road. She’s definitely a car chick, but the question of what powerplant sat under the hood of her new car stumped her.

It stretches 65 miles, and was formed in 1942 with the construction of Mansfield Dam on the Colorado River.  The only natural lake in Texas is Caddo Lake in East Texas, but that’s another story…

    50 Cent filed for bankruptcy last week after a jury ruled that he had to pay $5 Million in damages to a woman after he posted a sex tape without her consent.  Rookie mistake brah, you always get them to sign the form before filming.  He’s not actually bankrupt he’s just attempting to protect himself from having to pay anymore money but the court is seeing his evasion attempts for what they are. To follow up with the descent of the ballers, Mr. Jackson testified today (July 21, 2015) that his lifestyle is an illusion. He claims he “returns the jewelry and cars to the store” and he is…

    2016 Honda Accord Rear Fascia The current Honda Accord debuted as an all-new model in 2013. So, to keep up with its competitors in the heavily contested family sedan segment in the U.S., Honda engineers are giving their popular mid-size entry a mid-cycle refresh for 2016. First Impression As may have been expected, the refresh is more of an evolution rather than a revolution of the current Accord’s design. For 2016, the Honda Accord sedan and coupe (last of its kind), get the customary redesigned front and rear bumpers, new rims, minor interior tweaks, and reshuffling of the option…

And if you have a car with black, leather interior, you well know that blazing heat feel the moment you sit down. Just the other day, I went to the grocery store. I can be a bit chatty in public. I also never go to the grocery store with a list – I wander the aisles aimlessly. By the time I come out, the interior of my Fusion Titanium rivals the Gobi Desert.  On a 90 plus degree day, a car’s interior may be upward of 140 degrees! Luckily my Fusion,…

And to get those things to our getaway destination, safety is essential. General Motors provided this handy towing info-graphic. These are really great tips you can use before you head out. The best advice I can give is to simply go slow.  Lower speeds help you better command the truck and trailer when weight is pushing from behind.  If you have a trailer brake controller, that will help too.

You might see a brand-new fuel injected Camaro side-by-side with a primer-gray Chevy Nova, or a chromed-out rail job parked next to a monochrome musclecar. On the surface, these vehicles seem to share very little in common, other than the fact that they’re all hot rods.This hobby has evolved quite a lot…

In other words, you don’t have enough kidneys.You’re probably familiar with the ultra-rare 1995 McLaren F1 LMs — five F1s built at the factory (plus one XP1 prototype) with upgraded engines, stripped-out interiors and McLaren’s Extra High Downforce Package.

    I plan to buy a GC, but this points out some disadvantages. Basically, the new 2016 Honda Pilot is bigger than the GC but weighs an astonishing 1000 lbs less. Thus, with 80 fewer horsepower and a 2mpg advantage, the V6 Pilot is faster to 60mph than the V8 GC. I understand: the Pilot is basically a minivan at this point with little off-road ability, and that the GC’s off-road capabilities add weight. But the Grand Cherokee, in spite of its Mercedes-based platform, is starting show its age while next-generation SUVs show the advantages of the latest efficiency measures. I really want a V8…

    It’s 43 degrees outside, the sun is making life difficult even with the air-con at maximum blast, and we’re flowing with traffic at 100km/h (maybe that’s in miles, no time to check now) down highway 15 from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. The BMW X5 M seems like it’s having a quiet nap, waiting to be prodded with the right foot. There’s a BMW 7 Series Alpina B7 in front and a new Porsche Cayenne Turbo on the right. It’s just a typical day on the great American highway. The land of the free, and – at least for the moment – the very hot. There’s something about the X5 M…

  • 2016 McLaren 650S Review

    Anthony Crawford
    31 Jul 2015 | 3:38 pm
    If you think of the McLaren 650S as a replacement for the now defunct MP4-12C super car, you’ll be just about spot on – except you will need to redefine any previous notions you had of what ballistic speed really is. After all, this is the car McLaren expects to slay the likes of Ferrari’s new 488 GTB and Lamborghini’s Huracan. The iconic Porsche 911 Turbo is bound to be in there swinging, too. Priced from $441,500 (plus on-road costs) for the 650S Coupe and $486,250 (plus on-road costs) for the Spyder, the McLaren easily undercuts the Ferrari’s much-lauded 488 GTB, which starts at…

  • 2016 Chevrolet Malibu to feature low-cost pedestrian-avoidance system

In this system, a camera is set at the back of the windshield that detects pedestrians and alerts the driver of an impending collision.

    8 Jul 2015 | 7:42 am
    Dacia & Dacia Duster? Usually I don’t do an individual piece on the manufacturer, but Dacia (pronounced ‘Datch-ya’) cars are a fairly new sight on UK roads at this point, but we’re seeing more and more about now so let’s give you a bit of background info on them. Dacia is marketed under its own name only in Europe and Euromed regions, and in the rest of the world they’re under the Renault branding. Dacia is Romania’s largest national vehicle manufacturer, with a massive 28% market share, and since 1966 have been building Renaults under licence. They…
  • 2015 Lexus NX 300h Premier AWD review – Luxury Crossover Aims for a Younger Market

    Chris Davies
    22 Jun 2015 | 6:30 am
    Lexus NX? 2014 saw Lexus enter a new car into the fray of the fast-growing compact crossover sector – the NX. 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…

    9 Jun 2015 | 3:54 pm
    Peugeot RCZ-R? When I tested the RCZ Sport THP 200 in late 2013, I was surprised by just how much I enjoyed it and dispelled the myths about it being the ‘poor man’s Audi TT’. Now though, Peugeot have unleashed the same car which has had some major performance enhancements, a 1.6 turbocharged petrol engine producing an astonishing 270 horsepower – the most powerful Peugeot motor to date – it’s shed some weight and weirdly it’s even more economical and produces less emissions than the THP 200, despite all the extra power squeezed out that little…

Usually I would say no but this one looked pretty cool and I actually need a smart phone holder so I agreed.

    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…

    According to the latest figures, car insurance costs may halve by as early as 2020 due to the increase in the number of driverless vehicles on British roads. It’s estimated that annual premiums could be cut by up to £265 on average within the next five years, with the influx of driverless vehicles expected to ‘eliminate’ bad driving: still considered to be responsible for 90 per cent of road accidents.

    The crash has left the front three-quarters of the S-Cross damaged beyond repair leaving the driver dead and raising concerns over the frequent crashes of compact SUVs around the launch period.

    I don’t know what you look at first when you think about buying a new car and comb through all the stats in a car review  to see what it’s like. For me, the fuel economy figures would have to be just about top of the list, jostling for space with details like the size of the boot and the number of doors and seats.  However, have you ever noticed that when you actually purchase your new car, you never seem to get the same fuel economy figures that the sticker on the windscreen says? Sometimes, the reason why you’re not quite wringing the same economy out of your little car is obvious:…

    26 Jul 2015 | 7:30 pm
    Once upon a time, Australia was home to Holden and Ford and some assorted imported brands that made small cars. Toyota sold Corolla, Corona, Land Cruiser and that was pretty much it. Then a car called Camry came along, with a four cylinder engine. It changed shape but didn’t really grow much, even with the addition of a V6. However, time eventually caught up with the Camry and it put on weight, getting bigger and bigger. In 2007 a decision was made to separate the four cylinder Camry from the V6 and to give the bigger engined version its own name. And lo, Aurion was born. Aurion had big…

The company was actually the only American manufacturer to produce all-wheel drive passenger cars during the early eighties. Chief among them was the AMC Eagle lineup.AMC’s Eagle was what you could call, the first crossover. It used an AMC Concord car chassis, but combined it with a higher ride height and semi capable off-road AWD system. The Eagle came in a coupe, sedan, and a station wagon body, and offered the public something truly novel for the time.

    A group of media people were invited by Ducati to their Bosch testing facility near Detroit. The Italian company promised their guests that their new 2015 Multistrada is “uncrashable”.

    Editor
    23 Jul 2015 | 8:32 am
    Do you know what it takes to assemble an automobile? It’s easy to imagine that all vehicles are stitched together by an army of robots endlessly welding and hammering and using a robust combination of tough rivets, bolts and various other types of unwieldy machinery. But the reality is very different. In fact, many modern vehicle makers actually use glue (yep, GLUE) to bond some parts together, which may come as something of a surprise to those already concerned about the safety of contemporary automobiles. However, there’s no need to worry. Specialist Adhesives Rather than manufacturers…

    The technologies used in making automobiles have become more advanced as more and more cars are being introduced in the market nowadays.

    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…

    It’s a beautiful thing, this art of mechanical repair. Using your skills, your brains, your logic, to improve an item to something more that what it is now. It allows us to run the full gamut of emotions, to feel the entire spectrum of what it feels to be human. You feel stupid if you mess up, you feel happy if you achieve your goal, it hurts if you smash your hand against cold hard metal. You get that awesome feeling of ‘I fixed this and now I’m doing 100kmh’, then the fear of realising ‘I fixed this and now I’m doing 100kmh’. It is an art,…

As I nosed my way out out of the car park, dodging BMW touring bikes and Goldwings, something caught my eye. Low slung and packing a V-twin, there was nothing on the bike which jumped out at me, but it still held my gaze. I knew the bike from somewhere, but couldn’t pick it. Pulling up slowly, I saw the half round emblem on the tank and had trouble believing my eyes. Roughly 200 in the world, asking prices up to the $300k mark, I had come face to face with my first Crocker motorcycle. Way back…

    So both my bike projects have somewhat stalled. So I decided to get off my butt, and do something productive. I scored a cool old school toolbag off my mate which needs some work, and the GSX250 needs a new earth lead for the new starter solenoid. So in doing these I found out some things. On the up side: tonight I made quite possibly one of the neatest looking bits of auto electrical engineering I have ever done. On the down side: I put the wrong sized eye terminals on it. On the up side: It turns out I can sew. On the down side: I’ve got a long way to go yet.

    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.

  • 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 addition, the following facts are true about average American drivers: About 50% of miles are driven in a car, while 40% are driven in an SUV or pickup truck. Women report more driving time than men, but men spend 25% more time behind the wheel. Drivers age 30-49 spend more time on the road than any other age group. Drivers with higher levels of…

    safet
    1 Aug 2015 | 8:45 am
    The number of tuning programmes made for the Nissan GT-R R35 is simply astonishing. Some tuned the car to produce in excess of 2.000 HP and sent it to the drag strip. Others were so enchanted by its off the line performance that only visual styling kits were made, but the most amazing works were done to the drag monsters that can actually ride on the streets. Jotech is definitely one of the tuning kings that earned a fortune by tuning GT-Rs.

First time we saw this little thing on the picture was in March of 2014 when Trion, an unknown US supercar startup showed their vision of the ultimate supercar they named the Nemesis. No one thought they were serious really. How could anyone when they’ve announced a supercar with a nine liter engine, eight cylinders, a couple of turbochargers and a power of 2.000 HP. C’mon, even Koenigsegg isn’t quite up to the task of creating such a ferocious machine despite being run by the magician Christian. Nevertheless, one and a half year…

Instead, we witness a brazen Hong Kong Ferrari driver in a rush to get somewhere. Even if that somewhere is just in front of the car before him. Anyone who has driven at excessive speed is aware (or should be aware) that there is always a wild card. That uncontrollable factor of others in traffic.

    As Gearheads, we may not all be down with the lingo of skateboarding. We may not know a frontside from a noseslide, or a goofy-foot from switch stance. What we know best about skateboarding, is that sk8ers should stay off our frickin’ roads. One skater learns his lesson after landing an ollie over a guardrail from a raised lot. When he sticks the landing on the pavement, a passing Range Rover is almost on top of him. There’s a last ditch effort from the skater to stop, but there’s no hope of getting away from impact.

This is a stunning carbon trimmed 1199 Panigale S from Arete Americana, and if you’re the current owner of a Panigale, you might want to consider a few upgrades. Adding a bit of carbon fiber here and there to a sportsbike isn’t enough to make it special; you’ve got to go the whole hog and do it from soup to nuts. Why? Because carbon fiber is exceptionally strong, keeps the weight of your bike down and is usually reserved for the premier division of motorcycle sports and…

    The inside of a Tesla Model S is minimalistic. No coat hanger hooks or cup holders in the back and no center arm rest compartment. It has a storage compartment (sometimes referred to as a glove box) and a small, open shelf below the touch screen. There is an open space where a traditional gas car’s center console would be housed, but for Tesla it’s like placing things on the floor of the car.I love the clean design, but always felt that open shelf seemed an afterthought and one left unfinished at that. On the positive side it’s strategically located; easily accessible by…

    Learning a new concept whether that be a language, a skill or a new process takes time. We need to familiarise ourselves with the topic, then practice it consistently and hopefully find a way of remembering and improving upon what we have learnt. As individuals we all take on new concepts in different ways. Some people learn better with visual aids, while others prefer to understand the theory behind the subject first. There is no right or wrong method for learning, just a methodology that suits you the best. The above holds true for many concepts and learning to drive is no different.

    The 50s were notable for two big events: rock and roll on the radio and fins on cars. Danny and the Juniors assured us rock and roll was here to stay in the 50s, but there were no assurances about finned cars. The finned warriors had largely disappeared by the early 60s, while rock and roll lived to fight another day.
  • REALITY 101: A BASIC GUIDE ON HOW TO MAKE A BETTER TV CAR GUY SHOW

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:36 pm
    Most car guys are aware of the wide array of TV car guy shows available through the nice people at the cable and satellite companies for a modest king’s ransom monthly fee. They are scattered around the dial on a variety of cable networks and many of the shows have one thing in common: they are exactly the same. They take an automotive business and try to make it as entertaining as possible for viewers by turning shop guys into comedians/actors with spoon-fed lines that are supposed to add pizzazz to the show.
  • REALITY CHECK: DO YOU REALLY HAVE TO SELL THE DEAD GUY’S CAR?

    28 Jul 2015 | 11:33 am
    I watched a couple of car-curber TV show episodes that involved the sale of estate cars. The sales were facilitated by the little guy with the big moustache and he was the middle man in the removal of a family legacy. The cars in question were rare because the little dude only deals in high end rides when he gets involved and he is good at his job-just not as good as the big mechanic who actually gets the cars in tip top shape.

    31 Jul 2015 | 4:12 pm
    Is the U.S. ready to embrace subcompact cars?Last year, Chevrolet only sold 39,000 units of the Spark here in the U.S., but the all-new 2016 Spark is hoping to change that number. The pint-sized Spark will now be sold in 40 countries around the world, and the second-gen model will be longer, lower, and more powerful than the model it replaces. While a lower roof may hinder some passengers in the rear seats, Chevrolet engineers have also lowered the passenger hip point, helping to negate this issue. Thanks to the lower stance and stiffer frame, the ride and handling should be much better than…

  • BMW adds i3 electric cars to car sharing fleet

    Steve Hanley
    31 Jul 2015 | 3:50 am
    BMW takes the problems of urban congestion seriously, which is why it is promoting car sharing with its DriveNow program in Munich, Berlin and Hamburg as well as London and San Francisco. Until now, that program used ActiveE BMW sedans, but the company is replacing those cars with 100 BMW i3 electric cars. The BMW i3 was designed to be an urban car. It is not really intended for driving from New York to LA on the interstate. But the i3 sells better in the suburbs than it does in cities, primarily because most city dwellers do not have access to charging stations. Only suburban homes with…

    Electric-car charging infrastructure hasn’t developed enough for most cities to take the plunge and convert their taxi fleets to battery power, but that’s not stopping a handful of private companies from introducing electric taxis. One example of that trend is EcoCab, which started taking fares this week in Portland, Oregon, according to OregonLive. Electric taxis seem like a perfect fit for a city known for liberal sensibilities, green practices, and a willingness to try new things. Portland’s City Council approved 51 new licenses for EcoCab back in March, but the company…

  • On the hunt for a bargain…Ferrari?

    29 Jul 2015 | 6:03 pm
    The Ferrari 488 GTB goes on sale here in Australia in December 2015….but (and it’s a Sir Mix-A-Lot sized but here) if you pay for one in December, you’re still going to have to wait a couple more years before it actually is able to be parked outside of your mansion and bragged about to your cashed up friends. Finding that wait a touch on the long side, baulking at the mortgage level cost of $470k AUS and keeping the focus on the fun that is a used car, we’ve decided instead to find a few more bargain Ferrari’s more in line with average (not much) earnings. So if…

Not ideal considering one of those lights was ‘check engine’ and I figured I’d bought pure citrus. After a quick Googling it seemed at least one of my coil packs were having a rough time…not an end of the world scenario but not ideal for proper running.. So please tell me, what are Coil Packs? Coil packs are handy little removable box like objects that sit on top of your spark plugs and build up enough volts to really give those plugs…

    Back in 1988 a designer had a dream – a car where both the driver and passenger were separated by a wall and could only talk to each other electronically. Just like most smartphone owners behave today while in a cafe, while Instagramming lunch. After countless huffs of paint cans coupled with endless re-runs of the TV show Beyond: 2000, the Italdesign Aztec was born! I only became aware of the wonderment and absolute insanity of the possibly inspired by Back to the Future Italdesign Aztec through The Iron Chef Imports facebook page – someone in Japan has put one up for sale and it…

A long time ago when I couldn’t tell a rotary from a rotisserie, I enjoyed the adventurous tales of people with too much money and occasionally zero taste in Hot 4’s magazine. Of course not everyone could afford to restitch everything inside their rides with purple cow hide nor drown their car in fresh candy apple red paint and so the readers rides section was probably born. You could submit your ride and with everything crossed, hopefully be able to one day claim your pride and joy had…

For as long as I’ve known him my father in law has always had a few rusty wrecks parked out the back of the farm. There’s a VS Commodore near the wood bin that’s been busy collecting spiders, a commuter bus behind the shed that’s been relegated to storing the collection of bbqs and until recently there was also a small Honda and a VW powered kit car that’s sole purpose was to collect leaves and rust in that…

    A C7 Corvette Z51 plus a Magnuson supercharger equals 600 good ol’ horsepower. What else needs to be said? The Smoking Tire’s Matt Farah keeps it simple. It’s just a 15-minute canyon run, some off-the-cuff opinions—“I don’t know if it’s in my head that it’s louder, but it seems louder,” he says—and 100 more horsepower over a stock Corvette adds for fun times. Oh, and a beautiful grumbly exhaust note, that may or may not be louder, adds to the proceedings. And if you’re interested, Magnuson will sell you the very supercharger kit to take your C7 Corvette to the next…

This 383 stroker engine stays naturally aspirated, with a single Holley carburetor. It’s not an LS engine, and it still has the old-school charm.

It’s got mysterious bolt-ons and a tune, as well as that trick one-of-37 TA suspension that helps in the corners more than it does on the street. And from a roll at 60mph, the nitrous gives the Z06 a definite advantage. Watch from two angles as the Vette pulls, loses to the Viper, then makes up for the lead. It’s a close race. But in the end, the Vette reigns victorious. We take it that the Viper owner is currently scrambling to the…

    The last generation BMW M3 is hiding a naturally aspirated V8 engine under the bonnet, with that S65 V8 having been named International Engine Of The Year from 2008-2012 in the 3.0 – 4.0 liter category.

    14 Jul 2015 | 2:17 pm
    http://mojo-wp-review.s3.amazonaws.com/review/videos/chevrolet-colorado-mojo-motors-review.mp4   It’s not too often that North America gets a new compact pickup truck.  Shoppers have had to make due with the current Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, which haven’t seen a full-redesign since 2005, which was so long ago that Microsoft was just releasing the first Xbox 360. Needless to say, we were pretty stoked when Chevrolet announced the return of the Colorado for the 2015 model year, but we were also apprehensive, as the previous Colorado suffered from major quality…
  • 9 Cars For Families Under $5,000

    Tristan Cathers
    9 Jul 2015 | 7:17 am
    Need a car for your family? Have a credit score so bad that the bowling alley won’t loan you shoes? You can turn to a buy-here/pay-here dealership, but then you’ll be paying insane interest rates and have a very limited selection of cars to choose from. Not to mention, any car that is financed must carry comprehensive insurance, further adding to the total cost of ownership. If you have some cash saved, you can get a car that’s safe, reliable and practical —but you’ll have to go back in time. Back to when Tom Cruise had the guts to jump on Oprah’s couch,…
  • 5 Things We Learned From Talking With a Mercedes Benz Salesman

    Tristan Cathers
    8 Jul 2015 | 10:08 am
    The dealership experience is a big part of buying a new car. It begins with the sale, but it certainly doesn’t end there. You’ll be coming back with your new car for maintenance, repairs, recalls and more, so it makes sense to like the dealership you’re buying from. Dealerships are franchised by the manufacturer and independently managed, so each experience is a little bit different. We recently sat down with Matt, a veteran salesman from Mercedes Benz of Brooklyn, and learned a few things about selling a luxury brand, proving a car’s quality and how safety…

Is it a compact hatchback, crossover or SUV? We don’t really know. Even if we don’t know what to call it, we know exactly where the GLA’s place is in the automotive realm. We demand more from our cars than ever before. We expect a car to be practical, efficient, luxurious and yet somehow affordable. The GLA 250 was designed to fill this gaping void. It’s a…

    1 Jul 2015 | 7:25 am
    Affordability is a relative term. In 2014 Mercedes Benz gave us the CLA 250, which had a starting price of just under $30,000, making it the most affordable car in the luxury automaker’s lineup. They also gave us an AMG model to match—the CLA 45 AMG. Cars adorned with those three letters typically top $100,000, making the CLA 45 AMG’s starting price tag of $48,000 seem like a bargain. See? It’s relative. This all-new, untested CLA 45 AMG class raised an important question: could Mercedes Benz maintain the same level of luxury and prestige, one that has made their…

    Tesla Motors is close to releasing a software update on its autopilot technology. Last fall, Tesla introduced an optional, semiautonomous “autopilot” mode on its Model S, which allowed the autopilot-equipped models to detect other cars and obstacles around it and change lanes on highways. There’s also the 360-degree ultrasonic sonar, which monitors the electric car’s periphery, and allows it to make its own lane changes when you hit the turn signal. On Friday morning, CEO Elon Musk revealed two new features that will do even more of the driving for you: highway…

The top-selling vehicle continued to be Ford’s F-Series (F150, F250 and F350) pickup trucks, followed relatively closely by Chevy’s Silverado.  While the Silverado has been gaining in popularity recently and Ford has been hampered with production challenges, it’s worth noting that on a year to date basis, the Ford F-Series handily outsold the Chevy Silverado by almost 30%. Fiat-Chrysler’s Dodge Ram was in a distant third place.  While the GMC Sierra…

But the rise is barely perceptible, and Manheim notes that wholesale prices are in fact 0.1% down year-on-year. 2011 was the high point for wholesale prices. Although they have never hit those highs, they have not deviated significantly from the peak – and that is despite increasing wholesale inventory flooding the market. Rather, it appears that strong retail demand, operator efficiencies and enhanced…

For one, they’re too heavy and two, they lack any sort of modern, sophisticated suspension to put that excess of power effectively to the ground. Whether that be true or not, they’ve either had some effect on American automakers or the big three have realized that it’s time for improvement. With focused design principles, the Shelby GT350R leads the new spread of American supercars into the world arena. Because Ford’s Mustang may be the most iconic of American sports cars, it should…

    In the rarified arena of super-premium luxury automobiles, two names are highly recognizable: Bentley and Rolls Royce. Rolls Royce acquired Bentley in 1931. Then in 1997, Volkswagen Group purchased Bentley from Rolls Royce. Throughout the brands’ histories, Bentley was always the sportier brand, billing itself as “the silent sports car.” In fact, the primary difference between Bentley and Rolls Royce was that Bentley, from time to time, would go racing.
