  • Report: Jaguar’s new F-Type SVR could sport all-wheel drive only

    admin
    1 Jul 2015 | 1:30 pm
    A new report is in regarding Jaguar’s new high-performance variant of the F-Type–the highly anticipated SVR. According to the new report, CAR Magazine learned that Jaguar could be giving the F-Type SVR all-wheel drive after some of their staff caught sighting of some recent test mules. In addition to the all-wheel drive system, you can expect more aggressive bodywork for better aerodynamics and cooling, heavy-duty carbon-ceramic brakes, and visuals that take after the F-Type Project 7. Power is to be supplied by a tuned 5.0L supercharged Jaguar AV-V8 with around 600hp on tap. A…
  • Lexus reveals the new IS 200t for Europe, should come to our shores next year

    admin
    30 Jun 2015 | 11:43 am
    Lexus and Toyota are in the midst of rolling out a new 2.0L turbocharged engine for some of its base models. This engine is actually available on the new NX compact crossover and just recently, it was made available for the IS in Europe. That means in a matter of time, the current base IS in the US will cease to use its naturally-aspirated 2.5L V6 in the IS 250. The new motor produces around 240hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and channels it to the rear wheels via an eight-speed Sport Direct Shift transmission, allowing for a 0-62 time of just seven seconds. Not much else about the IS is…
  • Report: Next-gen Scion FR-S could use Mazda Miata MX-5 platform

    admin
    29 Jun 2015 | 5:00 am
    Some news is floating in about the next generation Scion FR-S, which Australia’s Motoring says could use the new Mazda Miata MX-5’s platform as a starting point. This seems possible since the Scion/Subaru/Toyota trio don’t seem to be selling as well as the brands anticipated. They want to keep the car around, but could use the Miata platform to cut corners instead of making their own. And that’s ok since the Miata platform is a great place to start. Not much is known, but the lightweight Miata is basically synonymous to the Scion/Subaru/Toyota trio in that both are…
  • McLaren announces new plans for entry-level Sports Series at Goodwood

    McLaren seized the moment at Goodwood this year to announce the launch of their new Sports Series lineup, or a line of cars that take the role of being McLaren’s entry-level line of cars. All the cars designated to populate the line are expected to be revealed over the course of the next two years, with one confirmed already to be introduced in 2016. The next one after that will be in 2017. McLaren obviously kept their cards close, but speculation points to versions of the 570S Spider and the 570S Gran Turismo.

    If you don’t quite understand it, Alfa Romeos have their own special reputation for being all things that soulful motoring should be. Like Italian culture, Italian food, Italian people, and so-on, you can tell their cars are just as much Italian as everything else, filled with soul, excitement, and joie de vivre, not by the way they’re styled, but also the way they’re built and the way they drive. This starts with the audible soundtrack that the car makes–and Alfas always made great sounds. Click here for our original post on the Alfa Romeo Giulia. That’s why…

  • Chart Of The Day: U.S. Automaker Market Share In America – June 2015 YTD

    Timothy Cain
    1 Jul 2015 | 1:00 pm
    General Motors generated 17.7% of the U.S. auto industry’s new vehicle sales in the first-half of 2015, a slight decline from the 17.8% market share earned by GM in the same period one year ago. GM, the top-selling automobile manufacturer in the United States, posted a 3.4% year-over-year sales improvement through the first six months of 2015, but that was a full percentage point off the pace set by the industry as a whole. Similarly, Ford Motor Company, American Honda, Hyundai-Kia, and the Volkswagen Group all failed to grow their sales at the rate of the steadily growing American auto…
  • Jeep Points to Map of India, Says Let’s Print More Money Here

    More and more automakers are looking at exotic locales to produce their wares (us Canadians can consider Mexico exotic thanks to its ice-free beaches) as they expand their brands and explore in-roads to untapped markets. For Jeep, that means investing in a shared money-printing press with an unlikely partner: Tata, the parent company of Land Rover.

  • Silent but Violent: Watch Rhys Millen’s All-Electric Run Up Pikes Peak

    Aaron Cole
    1 Jul 2015 | 11:00 am
    All-around fast driver and New Zealander Rhys Millen had roughly 20 miles of experience behind the wheel of his Latvian-made eO electric race car before Sunday’s race. That apparently didn’t matter as he piloted the first electric car to an overall win at the 93rd running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on Sunday. Millen’s 9:07.222 final mark was a long ways from Sebastian Loeb’s incredible, insane and probably-never-coming-down 8:13.878, but it’s interesting to note that Millen’s qualifying time was some 30 seconds off of Loeb’s pace,…

    Words and Photos: Raphael Belly En Francais Many years ago when I had just begun in the automotive world I knew very little about classic cars and classic Ferraris. 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,…

    So, the 2015 Honda Civic Type R is an absolute barnstormer, a 306-hp hot hatch that obliterated the Nürburgring lap record for front-drive vehicles with a 7:50.6 blast in a preproduction example. The bad news is, we won’t get it here in the U.S. But the heart of every European-market Type R will beat to the tune of the Star Spangled Banner: Honda will build the 2.0-liter direct-injected turbo VTEC four-cylinder engine right here in the U.S. of A.-That’s right—while the 2015 Civic Type R will never be available in the U.S. market, the hot hatch’s mighty motor will be built…

    -Now here’s a report from Top Gear that, first of all, has nothing to do with a loud, belligerent ex–TV-show presenter but that still has us torn. Pertaining to the all-new Mazda MX-5 Miata sports car, which already is a staff favorite here at Car and Driver, the crew over at Top Gear uncovered that there is not, in fact, a faster version of the two-seat roadster in the works. With rumors swirling of a spicy Mazdaspeed-branded Mazda 3, the news is surprising, to say the least.--It would appear as though the U.S.-market Miata’s 155-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder is it,…

Neither is returning for the 2016 model year.-Combining a supercharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a 20-hp electric motor, the hybrid SUVs didn’t offer a huge increase in fuel economy compared with the standard 3.5-liter V-6 versions. The front-wheel-drive hybrids had an EPA combined rating of 26 mpg, 3 mpg better than the nonhybrid, while the all-wheel-drive hybrids, also at 26 mpg combined, beat the standard AWD model by 4…

    What you put in your vehicle's fuel tank matters: if it needs premium fuel, you may not be saving anything by putting in a cheaper grade. And now, Shell has a new premium fuel, V-Power Nitro+, which it says does an even better job of cleaning and protecting engines. Find out more in my story over at Autofocus.

  • 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…

    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…

    It’s no secret I have never been a huge fan of PPC or Google Adwords. Don’t get me wrong, I feel they have their place but what I have typically struggled with is the lack of transparency in this area of digital marketing. Dealerships have blindly set budgets not even knowing the fees being charged by their vendor or the true results of the campaigns placed on their behalf. After reading this post on the Moz blog, it just dumped fuel on my fire. I recently heard Gary Vaynerchuk call Google Adwords traditional advertising. I love that guy!

    When you walk into your local barber/hair salon to get a haircut, you know you are dealing with a certified professional. This individual has acquired a license, passed a certification process, and received hours of training to trim or style your mane. Similarly, when you go to a doctor’s office, you aren’t meeting with someone with no related experience in the medical field. However, that could be the case for your average consumer when they walk into their local dealership to buy a car.

  • Review: 2015.5 Volvo V60 T5 AWD Cross Country

    Kevin Miller
    15 Jun 2015 | 1:00 am
    Way back in 1998, Volvo introduced a variant of its V70 wagon that has since become nearly as iconic as the Volvo Wagon itself: the Cross Country. The intervening years saw nomenclature changes eschew the “Cross Country” name, simply calling the vehicle V70 XC, and then XC70. Seventeen years later, Volvo has revived the Cross Country nameplate in the US, with the 2015.5 V60 T5 AWD Cross Country. Based on the V60 wagon, Volvo has gone to great lengths to give the new Cross Country some SUV styling cues to differentiate it from its V60 roots- blacked out window trim and tinted…

Six years later, I found myself behind the wheel of the sixth-generation 2015 Legacy 2.5i Premium, which is all new for 2015 model year. As with the previous generation Legacy, all new Legacy models have standard all-wheel drive; the only transmission choice now available is a Continuously Variable automatic (CVT). With the base 4-cylinder motor, power is up 5 HP to 175 HP, and fuel economy has improved drastically to 26/36/30 MPG…

  • 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…

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.

    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 immediately strikes fear in the heart, a fear of the unknown. A sense of panic sets in. Your significant other is rattled, “what’s wrong with the car now,” they ask with trepidation. You feel an impulsive need to drive immediately to a dealership to find out what’s wrong. The seed has been planted: it’s a money tree and you’re about to fertilize it with your bank account.

    It seems like just a few weeks ago we were talking about Porsche winning an endurance sports car race, oh yeah, it was the endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This is a different series, and a different race, but 6-hours at Watkins Glen in New York is still quite exciting and quite important to Porsche's racing program. No surprise, then, that they wouldn't be interested in settling for anything but the absolute best results. On this storied race track in this historic race, Porsche took a well deserved and celebrated 1-2 GTLM-class victory with their strong and fast 911 RSR race car.

    Pikes Peak can be tremendously rewarding...or unmercifully cruel. Fortunately, for the Porsche teams, participating in the 93rd running of the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, the rewards were satisfying. Time Attack 1 Class Jeff Zwart finally got his 8th win on the mountain in his BBi prepared GT3/GT2 Cup and Zwart set his fastest career time to the top with a 9:46.243. Zwart had run the car in 2013 and 2014, only to be thwarted by weather and some minor mechanical gremlins.

It makes me want to sell my house, my dogs, vital organs and anything else I need to in order to call one my own.

This 1966 Buick Riviera GS for sale on Hemmings.com, for example, might only have had one careful owner who put just 28,000 miles on it, but as of late, it apparently needed a rebuilt front suspension and full exhaust system. And though the seller went to the trouble to obtain a new carpet set, he’s left the original in place and the decision to keep or replace it to the next owner. From the seller’s description: 28,000 original 1-owner miles. White with blue deluxe…

Last week that dispute wrapped up with a three-way ownership of the car that could set the stage for a record-breaking sale. “We’re all in this together now,” said Kevin Mackay, the Corvette restorer who bought Cunningham Corvette #1 in 2012 and one of…

  • Mazda MX-5: No High Performance Models In The Works

    1 Jul 2015 | 8:09 am
    Mazda has reportedly declared that its sticking firmly to the traditions that built the MX-5 roadster into the icon it is today. That means no high-performance version is in the works, so the 2.0 litre four-cylinder naturally-aspirated model may be as ‘hard-core’ as the fourth generation MX-5 ever gets. The 2.0 litre model produces 115kW/200Nm in overseas markets (the Australian model will likely match this figure), while the smaller 1.5 litre engine is good for 96kW/150Nm.

The price cuts have been so dramatic that the Patrol Ti, previously the mid-grade model in the range, now retails for $69,990. Not only is that $23,400 less than before, it's $12,700 cheaper than the now-discontinued Patrol ST-L. It's also much more competitively priced against the Toyota Landcruiser LC...

    1 Jul 2015 | 8:00 am
    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life We just love Dartz, not so much for the actual products they build, but for their insatiable appetite for pushing the boundaries of sanity and taste. This is not to say, however, that the company is diametrically opposed to practicality: After all, its armored trucks and SUVs are great at carting VIPs through muddy and/or slushy war zones. Now Dartz wants to offer added protection for its smallest customers. It is, quite simply, a child safety seat. Yet it’s not that simple; this child safety seat, you see, is bulletproof. No, really.

Yes, a new 488 GTB will pulverize it in pretty much every quantifiable area of performance, and do so without making driver and passenger feel like they just went 10 rounds with a high-on-flakka mountain lion inside a buckshot-filled paint mixer inside an active volcano, but that’s part of the F40’s mystique. Not only was it the last new production Ferrari that Enzo himself signed off on before he died, but it was also one of the last raw, ornery,…

    With the American market in mind and an exciting sports sedan as their goal, Alfa Romeo unleashed their engineers to create an all-new four-door, the Giulia. Behind the signature Alfa grill is a high performance gasoline-powered turbo V6. It’s been a little confusing as the rumors about this engine either being sourced from Ferrari or benefiting from similar tuning. Alfa Romeo clarified things today when in their release they explain the engine was, “…tuned by engineers from a Ferrari background.” I’m not sure this helped to clear the confusion but no matter.

So perhaps it wasn’t really noticed that for the 2015 model year, the British sports car maker didn’t sell its stunning Evora S here. Thanks to new, more stringent airbag and safety regulations, Lotus had the Evora sit the year out, but it’s now on it’s way back with a number of enhancements. Once again on sale in the U.S. market, the new 2016 Evora 400 will come with a retuned version of a Toyota-sourced supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine with 400-horsepower and 301 pound-feet of torque. All that power is routed…

    It seems the old days of American-made cars consisting only of Ford, Chevy, and Chrysler have faded into the past faster than this season’s Red Sox victories. Today’s “most American” cars come from foreign car companies, which makes things difficult for the people who like to buy American and who still believe American cars come only from the traditional Big 3 automakers. Our friends over at Boston.com have a story about the “most American” cars, and three out of seven of them are from Honda or Toyota, with the number-one car being the Toyota Camry. Number…

    Gas prices are low, hybrids have lost their luster, and competition is fierce for alternative-fuel cars. So now is a great time to introduce a hybrid, right? There was a time when the Toyota Prius was the only option for buyers who wanted to advertise the fact that they love the environment. Celebrities and consumers alike proudly drove the efficient little soapboxes as a statement of being different.

    Is Chrysler ready for another merger? The U.S. automaker recently wrapped up a takeover by Italian automaker Fiat and was subsequently renamed Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, or FCA. Now FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne has his eyes on another merger: A takeover of General Motors. Acquiring one U.S. automaker evidently isn’t enough for the Italian businessman, because for the past few weeks Marchionne has been a champion of combining forces with GM. Obviously that’s a controversial plan, especially because GM CEO Mary Barra wants nothing to do with a merger and has said she’s committed…

Do you trade it in or sell it privately? What should you consider before you take the next step either way? Let’s take a moment to look at trading in your used car first. This is the simplest step to take, because you let the dealer handle all the hassles. It’s popular with most used car owners.

  • EcoBoost V6 Perfect for Ford GT

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

    Rezvani motors have unveiled the finished production model of their Beast supercar. The Beast is modeled from the lightweight, track-focused Ariel Atom, but with an actual windshield, more aggressive angles and some rather useful fenders. Under the hood lies an upgraded version of the Atom’s 2.4-liter four-cylinder, including both a supercharger and turbocharger, pushing out 500 horsepower, sprinting 0-60 mph in a mere 2.7 seconds. That’s roughly on par with an $845,000 Porsche 918- only at 1/7th of the price. The performance is accessible through a six-speed manual gearbox. The…

  • A Restaurant Refused To Serve A Homeless Man, But Minutes Later This Guy Returned To Show Them Up!

    admin
    21 Jun 2015 | 1:41 pm
    If you actually go out and talk to homeless people, you’ll find that they’re not that different from you and I. They may tell you how hard it is to find a job when you’re middle aged and homeless, or how the police often harass them. Most of all, they’ll tell you how different they feel. They’ll tell you that they’re treated differently. This is a great example. This guy decided to dress as a homeless person and try to dine at a restaurant. The results may not surprise you, but there is a bit of a twist.

    Storing petrol or diesel isn’t like storing any other kind of liquid, or indeed like storing fuel such as wood or coal. You need to make sure that it’s being kept safe and secure, and much of this comes down to the equipment that you use to do so. Let’s take a look at the things you need to think about if you’re going to go about this in the right way. Material and Construction Plastic tanks are the usual vessel that people use, and indeed, many people will keep one in their car for emergencies.

  • Little kid parks car like a budding Ken Block

    admin
    5 Nov 2014 | 4:04 pm
    At this point in the calender cycle, we’re probably all familiar with Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos (if you’re not, don’t feel left out – watch here). Naturally, as acts of controlled hoonage grow in popularity, younger and younger kids are going to become fans. And like monkeys, kids see, kids do. Obviously, without the aid of a thoroughly sorted open class rally car with 6-inch diameter piping creating more torque than a windmill, little kids aren’t going to be able to do smokey 720-degree burnouts. However, the real issue here is car control – you either have it or you don’t.

A grand total of $300 million, which works toward GM’s goal of $5.4 billion by the end of 2015. This will put the company just $2.3 billion short of its goal with just over six months left to go in the year.Other than these details, GM didn’t reveal anything else.

But with my sub connected it goes down to roughly 750 RPM's when idling. Then when I turn on my AC along with it it shakes below 750 RPM's and dies. So my first thought was the alternator right. So I go to Auto Zone and they test it. Everything comes back clean. Anyone got any other ideas as to what it could be other an a piece of crap?? Haha

  • Nissan Patrol price slashed, now starts at $69,990

    30 Jun 2015 | 6:08 pm
    The price of entry into the 2015 Nissan Patrol V8 range has today been slashed by a massive $23,400 as the company pulls out all the stops to shake up slow sales of its flagship SUV. Nissan has been talking about the need to reduce Patrol pricing for some time now, potentially in order to better align the behemoth with actual transaction prices (broadly, what people who buy them have actually been paying). The range update sees the discontinuation of the former ST-L range-opener, which retailed for $82,690 plus on-roads. The new entry variant is the eight-seater Patrol Ti, which you can buy…

    The buyout of Pininfarina by Mahindra & Mahindra has reportedly been scuttled by the Italian firm’s creditors. In late March reports circulated that Mahindra was in private talks to purchase the car design firm Pininfarina. Back then, it appeared as though a deal was close at hand. Last weekend’s edition of the Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, seen by Reuters, claimed that three or four of Pininfarina’s creditor banks have rejected an offer from the Indian car maker. Their primary objection, it seems, was Mahindra’s insistence that they write off around half of…

  • 2016 Nissan Leaf to have added battery capacity, increased range

    andrew@4wheelsnews.com
    1 Jul 2015 | 5:23 am
    Nissan is hoping that a midcycle update of its Leaf electric vehicle that extends its driving range will help turn around sales, according to an insider. It’s likely that the improvements will arrive as early as August. To increase the range, the automaker intends to make the lithium ion battery of the Leaf absorb more energy. It will still have the same size as the existing 24-kilowatt-hour power pack but it will produce 30 kwh. At the annual shareholders meeting last June 23, CEO Carlos Ghosn gave an outline of what will happen to the EV. He shared that in the “near…

  • 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…

    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…

    This is a featured article promoted by Chipex®  If, like me, you’re particularly proud of keeping your car’s paintwork looking top-notch, the sound you definitely do not want to hear is a metallic whack as you’re travelling at speed behind another car. It means two things: 1. your car’s front end has just been treated to a dose of road rash – or in other words a smattering of nasty-looking chips out of the paintwork, and 2. your stomach has just turned slightly. It’s massively frustrating, and unless you’re willing to drive around with a…

    13 May 2015 | 2:54 pm
    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 S0ul in 2013 sees it benefit from completely fresh styling all-round, a 20mm longer wheelbase, a 15mm wider body, and the…

    Just got a cool package in the mail. It is a smartphone holder for the car. A few weeks ago I was contacted by the iMagnet company that sent this to me and asked if I would do a review. Usually I would say no but this one looked pretty cool and I actually need a smart phone holder so I agreed. I made the video in the Hyundai as it gave me room to set up the camera and tripod in the back seat. It is the first time I used the video on the camera so it is a little shaky. I messed up and didn’t read the instructions first and put the metal plate that the magnet uses on the outside of the…

A few months ago when I was back in New York I went to the canon event for the new Canon 7D Mark II and was so impressed with it I knew I had to have it. Although money is tight with the new flood insurance bill going up (Big surprise there huh) Debbie knew that it was time to get my mind off that and upgrade my 10 year old camera.

  • Driverless cars could shave £265 off insurance premiums

    Editor
    15 Jun 2015 | 7:25 am
    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. Are things really moving that fast? Yes.  According to the latest figures, the technology is developing so quickly that road accidents arising from human error…

    28 May 2015 | 3:11 am
    Your car horn is integral to keeping yourself and other road users safe at the wheel.  However, car horns can sometimes suffer from issues such as a lowered tone or simply the inability to sound at all.  If you’re able to replace your car horn yourself you’ll often save quite a bit of money.  Here’s our guide to taking the DIY approach. Quiet car horn If the car horn is sounding at a low volume, then have a friend pop the hood and check it again.  If it’s overly quiet, the chances are that one of the horns (many cars actually have more than one) has…

There’s nothing worse than being stuck in the car in the midst of winter with freezing rain dripping onto your head!  Fortunately, a leaky sunroof is usually a fairly easy problem to fix. Most of the time a leaky sunroof is simply a matter of a clogged up drain tube.  The result is that the water overflows inside the vehicle.  This is usually no more than a 20-minute repair.

In this case, the new diesel auto Foresters from Japanese maker, Subaru, were parked in the driveway and A Wheel Thing checks out the L and S models. Powersource. Two litre engines seem to be the rage and there’s no difference here, plenty of torque at 350 Nm, from 1600 to 2400 revs and a surprisingly low 108 kW at 3600 revs. These two, though, aren’t intended to be high revving diesel sports machines, they’re family friendly load luggers.

Perhaps even many would remember the first ever night race in the BTCC at Snetterton where Peter Kox became the first Dutchman to win a race. However when I look back to 1999, I think of the return of a true legend who echoed what Ford did in 1993, competing in less than half of a season yet…

  • How To Replace Clutch Slave Cylinder?

    Vincent Philip
    29 Jun 2015 | 3:00 am
    A clutch master cylinder contains a reservoir that stores the brake fluid. It is connected to the clutch slave cylinder through hoses. When the driver presses the clutch pedal, brake fluid flows from the clutch master cylinder to the slave cylinder, applying the pressure necessary to move (engage) the clutch. It has internal and external seals that can fail. If the external seals wear out, the clutch master cylinder will leak brake fluid, reducing the amount of fluid in the car and causing the clutch to malfunction. You may also find leaked brake fluid down by the clutch pedal (inside the…
  • Understand The Use Of Coolant Temperature Sensor

    Vincent Philip
    26 Jun 2015 | 5:58 am
    The Coolant Temperature Sensor is used to measure the temperature of the engine coolant of an internal combustion engine. The readings from this sensor are sent to the Engine control unit (ECU), which uses this data to regulate many pcm functions. The sensor is located in a coolant passage in the engine usually near the thermostat. Functions: The coolant temperature sensor changes resistance with the change in temperature. The ECU is then able to calculate the temperature of the engine, and with inputs from other engine sensors uses lookup tables to carry out adjustments to the engine…
  • Want to Replace Your Ford Ranger / Explorer Clutch Master Cylinder ?

    24 Jun 2015 | 10:00 pm
    The clutch master cylinder generates the hydraulic pressure essential to operate the clutch assembly. The clutch assembly has two key functions: to transmit power produced by the engine to the gearbox and to disrupt that power flow when the clutch pedal is depressed.   The clutch pedal is attached to the clutch master cylinder directly. When the clutch pedal is pressed, pressure generated by the clutch master cylinder applies pressure to the clutch slave cylinder. The clutch is then disengaged. The re-installation process here is defined specially for Ford Ranger / Explorer…

It was an interesting reading to say the least, and I give a tip of the hat to their market-based analytic study based on multiple markets. One section I found extremely interesting was investigating what difference it made for Internet used car shoppers in how prices end – that is 0 versus 9, or as their research conveyed, the power of 00 versus 99 and 000 versus 999. 9 alone had no significance for preference, but “prices that end in ‘99’ vs. ‘00’ showed a 16% lift in…

But as of right now, the Finals are still in doubt because of no-names raising their game to best ever status in the role of “next man up”.

First, an increase in length from 3,961 mm (12’ 11”) to 4,253 mm (13’ 11”) clearly indicates that this is a much larger car with enough room inside for five people. Indeed, the latest Clubman isn’t merely a Mini 5-door Hatch with some extra bodywork at the rear. Versus the latter, its wheelbase and width have been extended by 100 mm (4”) and 73 mm (3”) respectively. The second change concerns…

    Although cars have a robust strength presented by the chassis and frame of the vehicle, the bodywork can be easily dented. Your front bumper is the part of the car that will deflect most bumps and bangs on the road, saving you a fortune at the panel beaters. However, over time the wear and tear on this part can cause it to fail and need replacing. This is one of the less complex mechanical jobs that you can perform on your car, and it can be attempted by even those with the most basic of technical knowledge. All you need to complete this task is a spanner set, a socket and ratchet set, some…

    Have you seen a spillage underneath your car that you know is not oil? Is your car growling like a big cat when you turn the steering wheel? If so, then the likely culprit could be your power steering pump. Like all parts in the engine this pump is prone to fatigue, with the gaskets and seals around the unit generally failing first. Although some hardened mechanics will argue that it is possible to rebuild the unit, it is generally best replaced with a new or second hand part. This is a moderately difficult procedure that you should expect to take around four hours. 1.    Finding the Power…

    Has your car been bucking as you drive on the open road? When you put the key in the ignition, does your engine simply crank and turn over, but fail to start? If this is the case then the likely offender in the frame is the fuel pump. This part is used to supply fuel at pressure into the engine, driving the combustion process. An ineffective pump means that your car is not getting the feed of fuel it needs to run properly. Like all parts this is prone to fatigue and will fail around the 100,000 mile mark. 1.    Locate the Fuel Pump Your car’s fuel pump should be located in the fuel tank.

In turn, Toyota also stopped using the prefix Celica and began just calling the car Supra. Owing to the similarity and past of the Celica’s name, it is frequently mistaken for the Supra, and vice versa.

  • How To Replace Clutch Slave Cylinder?

    Vincent Philip
    29 Jun 2015 | 3:00 am
    A clutch master cylinder contains a reservoir that stores the brake fluid. It is connected to the clutch slave cylinder through hoses. When the driver presses the clutch pedal, brake fluid flows from the clutch master cylinder to the slave cylinder, applying the pressure necessary to move (engage) the clutch. It has internal and external seals that can fail. If the external seals wear out, the clutch master cylinder will leak brake fluid, reducing the amount of fluid in the car and causing the clutch to malfunction. You may also find leaked brake fluid down by the clutch pedal (inside the…
  • Understand The Use Of Coolant Temperature Sensor

    Vincent Philip
    26 Jun 2015 | 5:58 am
    The Coolant Temperature Sensor is used to measure the temperature of the engine coolant of an internal combustion engine. The readings from this sensor are sent to the Engine control unit (ECU), which uses this data to regulate many pcm functions. The sensor is located in a coolant passage in the engine usually near the thermostat. Functions: The coolant temperature sensor changes resistance with the change in temperature. The ECU is then able to calculate the temperature of the engine, and with inputs from other engine sensors uses lookup tables to carry out adjustments to the engine…

When the clutch pedal is pressed, pressure generated by the clutch master cylinder applies pressure to the clutch slave cylinder. The clutch is then disengaged.

    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.

One of the driving forces behind the legendary Suzuki Katana, it is a lesser known fact that Herr Muth is also the designer behind the BMW R90S of the mid 70s. Built to throw off the idea that BMW built only plaid boring motorcycles, the sporting German machine was given both mechanical and aesthetic upgrades to make it stand out from the vanilla BMW bikes of the period. Packing 67hp, and the ability to reach 200kmh, this is definitely one motorcycle that had BMW thinking outside the box. Today’s bike comes from Australia, an incredibly clean barn…

It seems either they crack at the welds or they just fit poorly and leave much to be desired when fitting the rest of the exhaust.

  • Inside Sir Arnold Clark’s classic car collection: Part 4 – Cars with royal connections

    24 Jun 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Following on from a special royal visit from The Duke of Rothesay at GTG Training yesterday, now seems like the perfect time to explore Sir Arnold Clark’s classic cars with royal connections. Last week, we took a look at Sir Arnold’s cars from the 1930s and the two in this article follow on quite nicely, as there is one from 1948, and one from 1950. During the 1940s, cars became much more streamlined, and manufacturers were forced to go back to using cast-iron and steel as a result of material shortages post WWII. By the 1950s, cars become more technologically advanced, with the advent of…

    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.

    Emmett Young

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

    You may not be aware of it, but there is, in the realm of German premium brands and in their Hot-Hatch segment an utter war at play. They are trying to slash each other so eagerly that every few months we can see new cars coming out with all the more dangerous weapon overshadowing anything from everyone else. Audi and Mercedes lead this fight, but soon, BMW will join them with the M2 (and possibly the 1M). The last time we’ve checked, Audi was winning the war with the RS3 and its 2.5 liter five cylinder engine developing 367 HP. Now, however, Mercedes revealed a whole new redesigned A-class…

The name Clubman has been used in the Mini nomenclature for quite a while, but back in the times it did not stick to the wagons. It was used for a designation for special, better equipped versions of the normal Mini. New age, however, knows it as a designation of rather quirky and strange wagon produced by Mini. Well, strange comes from the fact that it had two doors on one side and one door on the other. The Veloster has the…

    Buying a new family car is a big step, so you want to feel like you’re in safe hands. Here are some of the best car manufacturers for families. Kia Some cars are great for families because they shun the fancy things that just aren’t necessary for the family car buyer.

    The Quatrac range of all-season tyres from Vredestein. What are they and why even bother fitting them? In the UK we often really don’t see the point of cold weather (winter) tyres and the benefits they can bring to drivers. That way of thinking may just have a point.

So what’s the point of winter tyres, having to have another set of wheels, the hassle of changing them twice a year, its just a bit to much for some drivers, especially if you live in an urban area that gets good…

    It is shocking that quarter of fixed speed cameras in UK are not in use, with mobile sites filling the void   Freedom of Information requests have revealed that nearly a quarter of fixed speed cameras in UK were switched off in 2014. There are total 1714 fixed speed cameras in UK which are monitoring motorists but it was very shocking that 391 fixed cameras out of these remained switched off last year.

  • Tesla is our ally, says Renault/Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn

    Steve Hanley
    1 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    On the eve of the final Formula E race in London last week, Renault/Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn told the press that “Tesla is not our rival – it is an ally.” How could that be? Aren’t they competitors in the electric car market? Not really, explains Ghosn. Tesla is starting at the premium end of the market and working its way down. Renault and Nissan are at the bottom of the market, the place where car sales are measured in the millions, not thousands. So the two are not competitors, at least not yet. The Tesla Model S P85D is worlds apart from the Renault Twizy, which comes…

    As the first generation of modern electric cars gets older, something will have to be done with the fleet’s worn-out battery packs. “Second-life” uses of battery packs for stationary energy storage has been getting a lot of press lately, and now it’s getting a significant endorsement. The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) believes that reusing electric-car battery packs can offset some of the extra cost of the cars themselves over comparable internal-combustion models. Over time, battery packs lose storage capacity to the…

A final decision on whether to build the car is due in November.

  • New study claims electric cars out-pollute internal combustion (in certain areas)

    Stephen Edelstein
    1 Jul 2015 | 3:45 am
    Electric cars produce no tailpipe emissions, but there’s still a considerable amount of discussion about whether they’re actually better for the environment than cars powered by gasoline or diesel. That’s because the vast majority of electric cars are charged from the grid, and the energy sources used to generate power for said grid can be pretty dirty. But does charging an electric car with power from a coal-fired plant really outweigh a lifetime of carbon-dioxide emissions from an internal combustion car? Depending on where in the U.S. you live, the answer could be…

  • Driven: 2015 Volvo V60 Polestar

    Andrew Ling
    22 May 2015 | 1:08 pm
    When someone utters the word “wagon”, I’ll bet that it’s almost impossible for you to disassociate it with the image of a Volvo station wagon. “Wagon” is to Volvo as “Jelly” is to peanut butter, and “Coke” is to rum. And a Volvo wagon was almost the quintessential definition of the “family people mover” before it was replaced by the minivan, which was subsequently then replaced with the SUV. Although wagons weaned in popularity in the early to mid 2000’s, they’re making their comeback. Now I’m not referring to the large body-on-frame faux wood panelled American…

    As far as Winter tire technology has come, snow boots are still a performance let down for those who truly enjoy the driving aspect of owning a sporting car. It would be great to be able to leave Summer rubber on the car until the first snowfall, but the sad reality is that high performance tires don’t work below about 7 degrees Celsius and that temperature often arrives much earlier than the white stuff in many parts of Canada. BF Goodrich know all of this and have launched a new tire called the g-Force COMP-2 A/S, aimed at American muscle cars along with European and Asian performance…
  • Why you should service at a dealership

    In the first installment of our “How to get good service”, I answered the age old question: Do you really need to service your car at the dealer? In the second installment, I’m going to talk about the positive aspects of servicing at a new car dealership. The first and most obvious reason that you should service your new car at a dealership is that it has a warranty. The chances are that you might have a niggling problem or two that you want resolved and from a convenience standpoint, it makes sense to have your maintenance done at the same time. If you actually liked any of…

  • Grudge Match! Supercharged C7 Corvette vs Mustang GT500

    VetteTV
    30 Jun 2015 | 5:01 pm
    The rivalry for the ages continues: Ford versus Chevy, Corvette versus Mustang. Only there’s a twist. The twist: the Corvette C7 features a supercharger (as well as a custom license plate attesting to such). The Mustang GT500 features bolt-on mods like an intake and an exhaust, as well as huge drag tires in back. Both run in the 7’s finishing over 100mph. So who wins? The Mustang gets dusted by the C7 Corvette, but just barely—by half a second. Later, the same Mustang takes on an old Nova. As it turns out, it does a fair sight better that time. The post Grudge Match! Supercharged…
  • SLP Supercharged Camaro SS pulls against brand-new Z06

    28 Jun 2015 | 6:43 pm
    Does it take a supercharger for a Camaro to beat a bone-stock Z06? Watch this video and find out. The 2010 Camaro SS rocks an SLP supercharger, full exhaust, intake and tune for around 572 rear-wheel horsepower. It pulls hard, and sounds great, and is also very yellow in color. The white C7 Corvette Z06, meanwhile, is allegedly stock. A couple of well-meaning highway pulls later, and it seems like it’s bye bye, Camaro—650 horsepower is always enough, especially when a mere 572 horsepower isn’t. The post SLP Supercharged Camaro SS pulls against brand-new Z06 appeared first on VetteTV.

A couple of 1,000-horsepower LSx motors will probably attest to that. Ron Mowen is the owner of Vengeance Racing, and he takes us around to what the shop’s currently working on: a C7 Z06 with 787 rear-wheel horsepower, a stroker C6 Z06 with twin turbos, and even a Firebird headed to the Texas Mile.

Both Pro Street cars are ripping and roaring, burning out on huge drag slicks, but with a parachute and foot-long drag spoiler, the Mustang looks even more seriously built.

    The MPV segment in India has witnessed a strong growth in India in the recent times. However, one MPV which has performed badly is the Nissan Evalia. The Evalia was launched in October 2012 and till date only 2412 units of the vehicle have been sold in the country. Nissan even gave the Evalia a couple of facelift`s but even then the product failed to gather any buyers. One of the negative points of the Evalia MPV is its boxy looks and old school styling. But in international markets the MPV which carries the NV200 badge has been doing quite well for itself. The other reason for its failure…

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…

    Sure, being a driver for McLaren F1 this year is pretty rough. The Honda partnership hasn’t been the instant success everyone was hoping for and the legendary team has been stuck filling the role of back marker, if they finish at all. Of coarse there are some perks to the gig, some world traveling, a pretty decent salary, and when it’s time for some touring laps featuring some very important cars from the past, you may get to take a drive in one. McLaren brought out Ayrton Seena’s MP4/6 for the crowds at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and boy, does it sound as good as ever.

    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…
