    A Fiat-badged version of the next generation Mitsubishi Triton is seemingly on the cards for Latin America and, possibly, Europe. Overnight both Fiat and Mitsubishi issued a single sentence statement confirming that the companies “have signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) concerning the possibility to develop and manufacture a mid-size pick-up truck, supplied by Mitsubishi and based on the next generation of L200″. This follows reports emanating from Europe earlier this year that Fiat would market a version of Mitsubishi’s Hilux competitor in both Europe…

    VOLKSWAGON SP2In Brazil the subsidiary of Volkswagon who ran things differently than the Wolfsburg plant decided to build a project car. This is the SP2 sports car. The idea was that the only sports car by Volkswagaon at the time was the Ghia and its was declining quickly.The decline of the Ghia sparked CEO Rudolf Leiding to start what was referred to as Project X in 1969. The car came to life in 1971 at a auto fair and then in 1972 it hit the streets with a bang. The SP2 used the Variant frame and the same air cooled engine. The SP2 beefed up to 1700cc and a sporty…

    We’ve sat in parking lots, bored, and switched on the backup-camera feed to watch who’s behind us. Now Ford has brought this idea to its logical and safety-oriented conclusion for its Police Interceptor models: If someone walks too close to the rear, the parking sensors beep, the doors lock, and the windows close. Ford calls this trick “Surveillance Mode” and bills it as “a first line of defense from potential assailants”; the automaker and its partner are now willing to license it to other manufacturers of police sleds. Certain non-cop vehicles from…

  • Official photos of Aston Martin’s super exclusive Lagonda surface

    19 Sep 2014 | 11:54 am
    Aston Martin’s making a Middle East-only Lagonda sedan, thanks to the rich and deep pockets of the various one percenters in the sandy deserts over yonder. And to brag to the rest of the world and taunt about how we can’t get it, Aston Martin finally revealed official photos of its Lagonda prototype running about the deserts of Oman. Built on the same VH platform as the current Rapide, the new Lagonda receives a lightweight carbon fiber body and is limited to just 100 units. An updated 6.0L V12 is included in the mix with around 600bhp on tap, mated to a ZF-sourced eight-speed…

    Mercedes-Benz is serious about their hybrid plans as Australia’s CarAdvice recently heard of 10 possible plug-in models from the Silver Arrow. So far, the latest plug-in model to come from Stuttgart is the S500 Plug-In Hybrid, but similarly equipped models could surface in great variety by 2017. According to Daimler AG’s Dr. Thomas Weber, the plan involves making plug-in hybrid variants of the C-, E-, and S-Class models, in addition to various crossover SUVs. Each model could surface every four months until 2017. The next model to follow the S-Class could be the new C-Class…

    The Kia Soul is a very sweet deal for the value subcompact crossover that it is, but to make things possibly more interesting, Kia could be boosting some more soul into the Soul with a turbocharger and even all-wheel drive, according to Automobile Magazine. The turbo would take form as a high-performance version of the Soul, thanks to the same 1.6L turbo four-banger in the current Kia Forte, good for a not too shabby 201bhp and 195 lb-ft of torque. The new turboed Soul should also get sportier suspension and brakes to cope with the extra boost. As for the all-wheel drive version, not much…

    Rumors of a Bugatti-based sedan have been circulating the rumor mill for quite some time, but never has it ever come to fruition. Bugatti first expressed interest to produce a sedan with the Galibier Concept from 2009, which possibly could’ve taken the title as the world’s fastest sedan. However, it never made it into production because a sedan was thought to “dilute the Bugatti philosophy,” according to the brand’s former head honcho, Wolfgang Schreiber. Now that Wolfgang Durheimer is at the helm of Bugatti in addition to Bentley, Durheimer wants to bring the…

    As one of Europe’s most popular vehicles, the Ford Fiesta’s sales is an interesting datapoint when it comes to looking at the strength of the overall European car market. So it’s interesting that despite a supposed rebound of Europe’s new car market, Ford is cutting Fiesta output at its plant in Cologne, Germany. Just-Auto is reporting that Ford will cut output for 11 days, despite an overall EU market up 6 percent this year, though key markets like France, Italy and Germany were down slightly. Last year, the Fiesta was Europe’s best-selling small car, and…

Despite this condition, Chevrolet and Honda are both ready to push natural gas onto commuters and efficiency-minded consumers alike. The Detroit News reports Honda recently introduced a new generation of its Civic Natural Gas model, featuring amenities like heated leather seats and premium sound systems the previous model lacked.

There are no lines at dealers and people’s attentions are divided among upstart competitors like the Ford Ka and Volkswagen up! The Uno had to come hard in order to remain a relevant player, capable of attracting the new Brazilian consumer that demands more in terms of comfort, finishing, content and safety.

  • Junkyard Find: 1984 Toyota Tercel SR5 4WD Wagon

    I’ve owned quite a few Tercel wagons of this generation (though most of mine were the common-in-California front-wheel-drive type), and I respect these things for their simplicity, cargo capacity, and reliability. True, they were underpowered and not exactly inspiring to drive, but they could be very lovable. Living in Denver, I see these cars just about every time I hit the junkyard, but mostly they don’t seem special enough to merit photographing. Realizing that this one is 30 years old, however, inspired me to pull out the camera. Sold in New Mexico, died in Colorado.

    Back in the late 1990’s, auto manufacturers were scrambling to add more variations of the SUV theme “song” to their line-up. Gas prices were low and North Americans were in love with their sport utes. Dodge made quite an entry to the SUV marketplace with the Durango in 1998. Based on their new (at the time) Dakota pickup truck, the Durango offered up to seven passenger seating, the most cargo space in its class, and thanks to the body-on-frame construction, 3.5 tons of towing capacity. Buyers were so smitten by the trucky first generation Durango that they even ignored the tail lamps…

For example, a 2015 Audi A3 I recently tested had an “efficiency program” display as part of the driver information system in the instrument panel that, of course, shows current fuel economy. But it also displays how certain car features — such as air conditioning — influence mpg. It uses distance traveled and consumption data from the trip computer…
  • GM Cars Could Soon Detect Distracted Driving

    Doug Newcomb
    4 Sep 2014 | 5:57 am
    Photo by Seeing Machines Driver distraction is not a new problem. But these days more drivers are looking away from the road to glance at portable devices — and increasing their chances of becoming distracted and a danger to themselves and others on the road. While a furtive glance down at a device is now a common sight on roadways — and if seen by law enforcement can cause a driver to be ticketed — vehicles from General Motors may soon be watching whether drivers are distracted. According to The Financial Times, GM plans to incorporate head- and eye-tracking technology in…
  • J.D. Power: Bluetooth Still Problematic in Cars

    2 Sep 2014 | 9:30 pm
    As automakers add more connected features to their cars, using Bluetooth for making hands-free phone calls is by now a basic technology, and the connection for more advanced functions. But according to a new study by J.D. Power and Associates, the second biggest complaint consumers have about the technology in their cars is simply getting their phones to connect with a car via Bluetooth. Similar to J.D. Power’s much-watched Initial Quality Study, the 2014 Multimedia Quality and Satisfaction Study queried more than 85,000 new-vehicle buyers after their first 90 days of ownership on the…

    Formula One is in Singapore once again for their annual race under the lights, and with the end of the season in sight, all eyes are on Mercedes. The dominant duo in the Silver Arrows have proven their speed throughout the season, but their competition is closing in fast. Mercedes has won ten of the 13 races this season, with Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo the only non-Mercedes race winner thus far. Now it seems that other teams have finally started to catch up to the current points leaders, and other drivers are eager to snatch a win from Mercedes.

    Even though the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta hasn't gone through a full redesign, it still managed to climb to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+ list. The new and improved ratings come thanks to a stronger body, bumping the Jetta up to the highest category that the Institute has to offer. The Jetta looks pretty much the same as it did for the previous model year, but engineers at Volkswagen have cleverly added hidden strength to the body. With stronger A-pillars and door sills, the Jetta was upgraded to Top Safety Pick+, the highest classification from IIHS.

    The standard for luxurious sports cars is changing. Bentley's new flagship model, the Mulsanne Speed, has set the bar high for its competition with a 6.75L twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 530 horsepower and 811 lb.-ft of torque.  With an engine that powerful, the Bentley can propel itself to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and to a top speed of 190 mph. This improved performance doesn't sacrifice efficiency, though. In fact, the Mulsanne Speed is 13% more efficient that its previous, non-speed counterpart, with an extended driving range of 50 miles.

    Last Sunday was a perfect day for a cruise-in, so the Frazer Manhattan and I went to the one sponsored by our local Home Depot. There were probably close to fifty vehicles that were in attendance at one point or another over the span of five hours, and it was a pretty eclectic mix. Here's some of what we saw. Attending an event like this as a participant is a much different experience from that of a mere spectator. Just by having a car that's on display, you end up in a lot more conversations. The Frazer drew a fair bit of attention. Most people were curious what it was because…

    Jen Dunnaway
    18 Sep 2014 | 11:29 pm
    As Tigerstrypes' recent post emphasized, Kia has made a stealth ascent within the US auto market, moving from punchline to serious contender in the space of a generation. Once considered the ultimate in disposable transport, Kia's lineup has morphed into a kaleidoscope of seeming contradictions: Kias can be both derivative and innovative, cheap and luxy, aspirationally flashy and plain-jane commuter. The company's marketing injects goofball hamster-laden whimsy into a famously risk-averse industry; its design cues manage to be distinctive but not "polarizing"; and we…

    Probably the most truthful automotive slogan I’ve read. Like Mitsubishi’s 30th Anniversary and Scion’s 10th Anniversary, I was caught off-guard by Kia turning 20 in the American market, hadn’t it been for a news snippet on the local classifieds. Truth be told, I wasn’t paying much attention. Kias weren’t my thing. But seeing how much the brand has grown in a slightly shorter period of time than its sister Hyundai, I believe it deserves merit to travel back in time to see where it all began, even if it’s just for the kitschy-ness of it all. So set the VCR to record the series…

Then again, you’d expect that the Wikipedia page that discussed the 1970s would mention something of said events, wouldn’t it? This photo was taken by Warren K.

  • Porsche To Offer Detuned Boxster and Cayman In Some European Markets

    Bradley Brownell
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:17 am
    The 981 Boxster and Cayman are gaining new model lines almost as quickly as the 991 is. The defining characteristic of the different models is horsepower. The standard 'base' car has 265 horses (275 in the Cayman), there's the S we all know and love with 315 (325 in the Cayman), and the new 330 horsepower GTS (340 in the Cayman), which continues to have praise heaped upon it. In certain markets, however, Porsche is introducing the "211", which is a sub-base model with, you guessed it, 211 horsepower in both the Boxster and Cayman. Both cars have already appeared on Porsche's regional websites…
  • What’s With All The Wacky Porsche Comparisons Lately?

    Andrew Granieri

    I genuinely enjoy the additional Porsche models that are decidedly “less sporty” – if only because they’re so darn successful (the Cayenne is Porsche’s best-selling model in the US) that they basically bankroll R&D efforts toward more exciting things, like the 918 Spyder, and the 991 Turbo S. Given the Cayenne’s success, many were very anxious when Porsche announced it would be selling a smaller SUV, too. Initial reviews of the Macan have been quite favorable. Currently in the midst of this intriguing era of its reception where, like the Cayenne before it, people really…

Porsche salesman Qiang Chiu said: "We were still waving her goodbye when she shot forward and there was a tremendous bang." Apparently, the new Porsche driver mixed up the pedals and hit the gas when she should have hit the brakes. Unfortunately, she rear-ended at least two other cars (one of which was a Mercedes) and damaged two others. All told, the damage is estimated to be at least twice the value of her Boxster.

In the video that follows we see a McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder being chased by an Audi R8 V10. Clearly it looks like the Porsche should be in the lead as it seems to eat up the distance between it and the McLaren fairly easily. If anything, I think I've become so jaded from all the over produced videos out there that I kept waiting for these guys to start drifting around the corners like this Carrera GT. Other Porsche…

In these selected photos from Poydras Street, Dumaine Street, the Jackson Square, and Annunciation Street, we see that the cars parked along the streets tell as much of a story as does the city’s famed architecture.

    Much of the hard work has already been done on this 1959 Opel Olympia Caravan for sale on Hemmings.com, a car that’s still with its original owner and that has been apart for its restoration since the late 1970s. Since then, the owner has done the body and paint work, rechromed the trim, and apparently collected the necessary parts to put it all back together. Basket cases – particularly those involving uncommon cars – tend to be more of a headache than they’re worth, but this Opel seems rather far along and the original owner seems to have been particularly devoted to…

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:37 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist The E-Class Mercedes has — or can be ordered with — just about whatever you could possibly want. Just not always in the same model. If you want an E wagon, for example, you can order a death-dealing 577 hp twin-turbo V-8. But you’re out of luck if you want the 42 MPG-capable 2.0 liter Bluetec turbo-diesel four. It’s a sedan-only engine. On the other hand, all E wagons come standard with all-wheel-drive. But in the E sedan you can get both together. If Mercedes would do the same for the wagon, it’d be like nothing else on the…

    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Here are some things to know about new cars the car industry probably would prefer you didn’t know. * It doesn’t matter what brand you buy - Not nearly as much as it used to, that is. The trend toward homogeneity — especially within a given segment (e.g.. “compact crossovers under $30k”) is such that it’s becoming hard to tell what you’re driving without looking around for the badge. But it’s much more than purely superficial sameness. The really important commonality is that — with a rare exception…

    Just last year, the BMW 2-Series replaced the 1-Series coupe last year, bringing improved styling, better handling, and upgraded size and materials. And now the 2-Series adds just one major change for the 2015 model year: available all-wheel drive. Even though the 2-Series slots into the 1-Series’ former position in the BMW...

  • BMW X5 driver repeatedly fails to understand big rig braking distances

    Chris Bruce
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:00 pm
    Filed under: SUV, Etc., Safety, Videos, Crossover, BMW, Russia, Luxury Nobody should be shocked that a big, heavy vehicle like a semi truck takes a longer distance to stop than the average passenger car; it's just basic physics. However, this BMW X5 driver seemingly has a major problem grasping the concept, and it results in some serious damage to the back of his SUV. The whole incident is very confusing to watch. The BMW doesn't even seem to have a reason to slow down before the semi slams into the back of it at fairly high speed. But to make the situation even weirder, the crashes just keep…

  • The ugly economics of green vehicles

    Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Green Culture, Hybrid, AutoblogGreen Exclusive It's fair to say that most consumers would prefer a green vehicle, one that has a lower impact on the environment and goes easy on costly fuel (in all senses of the term). The problem is that most people can't - or won't - pay the price premium or put up with the compromises today's green cars demand. We're not all "cashed-up greenies." In 2013, the average selling price of a new vehicle was $32,086. The truth is that most Americans can't afford a new car, green or not. In 2013, the average selling price of a new vehicle…

The image seemed to depict a fastback GT somewhat reminiscent of Lambo's earlier 2+2 models like the Espada, and was accompanied by the sentence, "Once perfection is achieved, you can just double it." We're still not entirely sure what the means, but a possible leaked logo for the car might offer some big hints about its powertrain. According to the Office of Harmonization…

    Filed under: Motorsports, Performance, Europe, Videos, Hatchback, Ford, Racing It's always amazing to see how different kinds of racecars are made. Formula One racers are often constructed in modern architectural marvels that hint at some of the cutting-edge technology going into the racing. Conversely, rallying is all about sliding around on a varied course as fast as possible, but it often leaves a vehicle caked in mud. So it makes some sense Olsbergs MSE, or simply (OMSE) rally car shop in Nynashamn, Sweden, shows technological sophistication in a more down-to-earth setting. It builds Ford…

The European hot hatch revolution has begun. Throughout the 1980s and 90s the European market was inundated with brilliant hot hatches, including the legendary Ford Escort RS Cosworth, Lancia Delta, and the Peugeot 205 GTI. They were practical, fuel efficient, and cheap. They also were quick of the line, sharp through the corners, and all around good fun to drive. And yet they never truly caught on in the…

Thankfully, ProDrive – a Thailand-based tuner that is not to be confused with the British motorsports firm Prodrive – fitted this Porsche Panamera with a set of 22” ADV.1 wheels finished in rose gold, a color that’s mostly copper but with a pinch of pink mixed in.

So G-Power, one of the world’s top BMW tuners, figured it might as well create a collection of upgrade parts for not-a-sedan sedan. Chief among these parts is an auxiliary ECU that piggybacks on the stock unit for the 4.4L twin-turbo V8; understandably, the factory-installed turbos mean one of G-Power’s signature supercharger kits is nowhere to be found.

    Jaguar is no stranger to the luxury compact sedan, but the brand has failed to make inroads in a segment brimming with tough competition.

The first mid-engine production Porsche, the 914 in all its variants, will be among the headline classes at the 20th annual Concours.

    Traffic is a universal awful. Anyone who has to commute to and within a major city knows just how much time and patience every rush hour consumes. And with the addition of continuous large-scale construction, these delays only escalate. Let’s look at a specific case study: Construction on Boston’s I-90 Prudential Tunnel has reduced lanes and caused congestion in both directions as MassDOT improves it. Knowing Boston construction timelines, or really planned construction anywhere, this will take a while. So if you’re driving through a massive construction project, or simply…

    I think it’s safe to say that Top Gear is a respected and trusted source of automotive news and opinion. When the television hosts or blog writers give an opinion, the world tends to listen. When I saw the headline that the British blokes had driven the upcoming 2015 Mustang, I prepared myself to read about Ford’s still-inferior performance, interior, steering, yada, yada, yada. Instead what I read was an absolutely glowing take on the pony car that has taken 50 years to finally arrive on UK shores. That’s great for them, but what will it mean to Mustang purists here in the…
  • Cars on Autopilot: Self-Driving or Drive Yourself?

    The first autopilot system in an airplane was developed in 1912, just as car technology was in its infancy. In the 102 years since, airplane technology has evolved so aircraft can virtually fly from point A to point B by themselves. The human pilots are there to monitor progress, handle takeoffs and landings, and be prepared for emergencies. We all accept the fact that planes fly themselves, but transfer the technology to cars and widespread panic sets in. The terms “self-driving” and “autonomous” are thrown around by automakers, and perhaps most famously by Google,…

However, come 2017, the world of buying a luxury car could be very different than it is today. Keep in mind, 2017 is less than two and a half years away, and there usually isn’t a lot of change in such a short amount of time. The 2012 cars on the road today aren’t all that different from 2014 models.

    18 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    On 429 Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric cars from 2012-2013, vacuum pump operation could be affected by software defects and/or a blocked pump exhaust hole. A non-operational vacuum pump would affect the power brake system, increasing brake pedal effort and potentially increasing stopping distances, which could increase the risk of a crash. Mitsubishi dealers will therefore update vehicle software and replace the vacuum pump as necessary. Note: In the event that the vacuum pump fails, the brake warning lamp will illuminate and an audible warning will be heard. Source : Transport Canada

At its heart will be a 6-liter, twin-turbocharged Mercedes-Benz AMG V-12, churning out at least 700 horsepower. The Huayra roadster will be sold in the United States but it will take some time before customers…

It came with the luxury package ($640), 6.4-liter V8 Hemi ($1,495) RamBox Cargo Management ($1,295) and ParkSense and ParkView ($450).

Sure it’s turbocharged, but its still a three-cylinder! Remember the Geo Metro? Yeah, it was thee-banger and sported all of 55 horsepower. That’s what comes to mind when I hear three-cylinder.But never mind all that. BMW’s sorcery and electrification coax a combined 357 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque to spin all four wheels.

Technically, 2014 is the QX60’s first year in production, but its literal existence dates back to 2013 when Infiniti introduced the three-row crossover as the JX35. Thanks to the automaker’s nomenclature shake-up for the 2014 model year, the JX became the QX60 with no major changes happening to the vehicle itself. Infiniti has made things simpler with its new naming structure, keeping sedans named with the prefix Q and the SUVs named with the prefix QX.I recently spent a week utilizing the 2014 Infiniti QX60 for its…

Of course, amenities like swimming pools or club houses can make it tempting to gloss over the realities of living under an HOA – but it’s important that you don’t. For one thing, there’s the money.

Up to that point, I had not had any opportunities to experience convertibles or any of the “benefits” that come with them. Funny enough to say, the ambient noise from the thin fabric top of my friend’s family BMW convertible caught me off guard as I thought the surprisingly loud road noise indicated something wrong with the vehicle. More distress to our “borrowing” experience arrived when my friend announced that he didn’t ask permission to…

    What happens when you go car shopping for a station wagon and you end up with a 1928 Porter touring car that is actually your reincarnated mother? You make it to the number two spot on TV Guides worse shows of all time, just behind Jerry Springer. The show ran just one season on NBC from September 14, 1965 until April 5, 1966. A total of 30 episodes were produced by United Artists Television While My Mother the Car may have been a disaster in just about every way, it’s still a TV show about a vintage Car with one of my favorite actors of all time, Jerry Van Dyke. Enjoy the promo!

  • Carbon fiber mirrors for VW Golf 7

    admin
    10 Sep 2014 | 4:51 pm
    The German aftermarket has seen its share of trends over the years, and as of late it seems that there has been a shift towards OEM-inspired touches for a vehicle’s interior and exterior. Starting with more extreme yet still subtle changes like completely reupholstered Audi and Porsche interiors and trickling down to the Volkswagen scene, these bits are quickly becoming widespread at enthusiast events, which in our opinion isn’t a bad thing. German firm PRETOS.de is a pretty big player in this niche, often gaining praise from sites such as our Audi-counterpart Fourtitude for their line of…

    This latest featured ride comes to us from Norway and is modded to the max! The owner Steffen bought the car with some mods already done to it, but as many enthusiasts know there is always more to be done. Steffen started with the interior, scouting some beautiful RS4 bucket seats off ebay.de from a totaled RS4. Steffen tells me they’re probably his favorite modification to the car, which is saying something. To complete the interior, he found a custom TTRS steering wheel with carbon fiber accents which is incredibly beautiful. Next came the powertrain and handling – the previous…

  • Photo Shoot: My B7 Audi S4 on Volk LE37s

    Nick Roshon
    25 Aug 2014 | 9:03 am
    I recently found a set of used and very rare Volk LE37s on the Audizine Classifieds and refurbished them – the wheels are very similar to the more common TE37s, but unlike the TE37s these come in a 5×112 bolt pattern. The other main differences between the TE37s and LE37s are the center caps, decals, and finish – but they’re more or less the same wheels otherwise. The wheels have been discontinued so there isn’t a lot of information about them out there, but what I do know about the wheels is this – they’re 19×8.5 with an offset of ET35, they are…

    New spy photos of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class prototype made it online recently. The new version is dubbed by several sources as the W213 because it is expected to be the replacement for the current W212, which has been on sale four years from now.A quick glance at the photos would make one easily mistake the camouflaged vehicle as a C-Class due to its front grille’s resemblance with the best-selling range of the German marque. The MRA platform where it is based can also be found in the C-Class. The interior seems to house similar features with the C-Class too. However, a more…

The Hyundai i20 WRC is based on the road-going i20 three-door, albeit worth over a million dollars and built to the latest WRC specifications.

    I’d had the first Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 to be driven in Australia at my disposal for the past four hours and was about 500 metres from returning it to its Barbagallo Lamborghini Perth home when I faced every motoring journo’s biggest fear when in an uber-expensive car: an unmarked police car in my rear vision mirror chirping its siren and flashing its headlights. Quickly, I went through a panicked checklist in my mind. Had I taken that last corner a little too wildly for their liking? A dangerous driving charge in a $428,000 sports car wouldn’t look good on the CV. Had my speed…

  • Audi SQ5 v BMW X4 30d v Porsche Macan S Diesel : Comparison review

    We are just about getting used to the idea of sporty cars powered by diesel engines, but the Audi SQ5, BMW X4 30d and Porsche Macan S Diesel further test the scepticism of purists. Can a diesel-powered SUV be a genuine performance star? It’s fitting the SQ5 is here because it was Audi that started the modern era of diesel performance with its R10 and R15 TDI race cars that, with the exception of 2009, dominated Le Mans between 2006 and 2011 (before hybrids became trendy). With their ability to go quickly while also crucially limiting the number of pit-stops required over 24 hours, the…

But since chief executive Carlos Ghosn is bent on reducing in-house battery making, the carmaker may soon order EV batteries from LG Chem or eventually from other suppliers. "We will have both, and I hope even more," Ghosn said. While the joint venture – AESC – currently builds batteries for Nissan, Ghosn is also exploring an agreement wherein LG Chem would build power packs at the carmaker’s sites in the United Kingdom or the United States, a source told Reuters.

    Traveling with the family dog in the car is great. But some carmakers make it easier and safer than other manufacturers to travel with an animal. A blanket in the back of a station wagon can still work with a calm dog. But it’s not really safe if a driver is forced to stop suddenly. And arguably the bigger the dog, the more difficult it is to accommodate the family pet on a vacation or just on a trio the veterinarian or the local park. Fortunately for all parties involved, an increasing number of carmakers understand. It’s a good thing, too. About 47 percent of households in the…

It will be a while before you stop worrying about every “new” noise under the hood. That ticking noise, for example. Is it just a lifter, an exhaust leak, or a rod bearing about to let go because you weren’t hyper-vigilant enough during assembly?

  • Is car sharing really good for the environment?

    Timothy Alcock
    1 Sep 2014 | 6:58 am
    Car sharing or lift sharing can be a convenient way for two or more people to make a journey, be it to work, on a day trip out or for other reasons. The major benefits of car sharing is that it saves everyone involved time and money. This is important, especially with the rising costs of fuel and the numbers of vehicles on our roads increasing congestion and journey times.

When 2007 arrived, you could chuck away your 5-seat Picasso and instead own the gigantic hold-all of the car world: the Grand C4 Picasso. Kids now 3+1? More mates treating you as their taxi driver?

Take everything from that last pile and give it away. Have got a yard sale with the stuff of value, and everything else goes right to the Goodwill store.

    If you were one of the lucky few to have access to your parent’s car whilst comfortably living in your family abode, chances are, you didn’t have to spare two thoughts when pulling their car out of the driveway. Any cost associated problems while you were driving would be passed along to Mum or Dad along followed by the lament: when is this going to be fixed? I need to go to the mall and choose a super awesome outfit for Becky’s super awesome party! Ok, so I’m stereotyping… Slightly.

    The best thing about moving. The thing about things that you need is that you use them. You obviously don’t need them if you don’t use them. That seems like a logical correlation, doesn’t it? When you move, you should make a few piles of things. The “I need this! ” pile, the “I want this” pile, and finally, the “Do I really need or want this? ” pile. Take everything from that last pile and give it away. Have got a yard sale with the stuff of value, and everything else goes right to the Goodwill store. Don’t ponder over it, just do it, and I promise you you’ll feel an…

    Interest in electric cars among U.S. consumers continues to rise. News regarding the latest models from Tesla, Cadillac, Fiat, and BMW dominate the media. Consumers seem adamant about reducing or completely eliminating their fuel usage. In 2011, the average American household spent roughly $4,000 on gasoline alone, which is just a fraction of the money you can expect to spend on an automobile. A new entry-level Tesla car has been announced. The Model E will debut in 2017, and it reportedly will cost half the price of current Tesla luxury lines. Take a look at how this car could change the…

    Low emission zones mean trouble for diesel car drivers Remember when everyone was being encouraged to buy a diesel car? Diesel was hailed as being the saviour of the environment. You got better miles per gallon. It was cheaper to run. Heck, it was better than sliced bread. (One thing no one mentioned though was diesels tend to be more expensive to service and repair than the same petrol model). But boy have things changed. And it’s taken less than 15 years for the U-turn. Let me tell you now. If you own a diesel sell it now before everyone realises what’s about to happen. And…

    Across the globe, there’s commonality now that the internet is part of our lives and we can see that commonality in road rules. Red lights and Stop signs mean stop, green means go, roundabouts confuse. Yet, in real terms, driving on our roads really isn’t that complicated, as so many seem to think. Let’s have a look at some of the more basic rules. Indication: this is one of the simplest, yet, seemingly, most misunderstood parts of driving.

    I don’t know about you, but does it seem, in the light of Megan’s wonderful contributions recently, that the ability of people to take responsibility for their actions has decreased to the point that it’s almost illegal to be seen as doing so? Road rage is here and it’s here to stay. Yet there really are no reasons why it should be, BUT it’s also too easy to understand why road rage exists, given some of the truly awesomely garbage antics that are meant to be examples of driving, that we see on our roads daily.

    One of the biggest bits of news in the car world over the past few weeks has been the launch of the new Mazda MX-5. We’ve been teased with little bits of information for a long while now, and Mazda have been pretty secretive, as you’d expect, as to what we can look forward to. Now however, the cat is out the bag, and boy does it look good. The original car, launched to great acclaim in 1989, caused us to rethink the traditional two seater roadster. Gone were the days of poorly maintained, unreliable British roadsters from the likes of MG and Austin – here was a modern,…

Some things really press other people’s buttons more than others.  The ultimate way to avoid road rage, therefore, is to avoid these bad habits.  Recently, I came across a survey from the UK that listed the ten most annoying driving habits that get other drivers steaming hot under the collar.  I’m not sure how…

    They say you’ve got to spend money to make money. But in a post-war 1950’s Germany – at the time, still trying to get back on its feet – that was no easy task. Which is why the story of the BMW 507 is all the more profound. In the early 1950s, Max Hoffman, the US’ renowned BMW importer, called upon the firm to develop a new sports car, one tailored specifically with American buyers in mind. Hoffman enlisted designer Albrecht Goertz to pen his vision, BMW allegedly liked it quite a lot and commissioned him to craft the 507 roadster alongside a 503 four-seater. PHOTOS: Take it back to…

        Almost all rotating and moving machine parts, of an automotive engine, have relative motion as they rub against each other. As such, lubrication is required to reduce this rubbing action and increase the life of the engine.

      Automobile is fragmentary without the steering system as it gives the vehicle a directional stability. Steering enables the driver to easily maneuver the vehicle according to the path. It doesn’t mean that automotive, when developed, included steering mechanism. So, how the steering wheel which we see on today’s car was invented? The automotive freaks, during those days, got the idea of steer the vehicle from boats which used tilters that helped them to turn left or right. The idea was implemented on automobiles too, but didn’t last longer as it required more effort…

Usually you never know what you did to push the customer over the edge and make them buy from you. Occasionally they tell you when you’ve agreed a deal, almost as if they need to get it of their chest, some are too embarrassed, Sometimes it’s the price, sometimes you have the right thing at the right time in the right colour, but sometimes it’s just the little things you do.When I was working at weekends and during the school holidays washing cars at a…

    I’m not a fan of working on carburettors. My biggest problem is with the fiddly little pieces, which I am pretty sure are designed to shoot out on disassembly and disappear into the ether. Amal carbs got it right though, long long ago. A flathead screwdriver and spanner, and the whole things comes apart quite easily. Can see why riders used to be more likely to do any carburettor work themselves. Remove two bolts and a fuel line, then you can take it off and strip it down. Simplicity itself, a ten minute job to pull it down and put it back together, with a minimum of moving parts that…

  • Plans to lower drink-driving limit in Scotland put on hold

    8 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    An announcement was made earlier this year that Scotland’s drink-driving limit was to be lowered within months, while England’s would remain the same. This would mean signs advising drivers of the different laws would be likely to appear at the border. Why was the change proposed? The proposed cut on Scotland’s roads could go ahead after breathalyser machines were shown to be sensitive enough to accurately measure lower levels. Lowering the current limit of 80mg of alcohol in 100ml, which has been in force since the mid 1960s and is one of the highest in Europe to 50mg would bring…
  • Why is wheel alignment important?

    1 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    The meaning of wheel alignment can often be confused, as the term is misleading. Rather than referring to your car’s wheels, wheel alignment (also known as tracking) is related to the suspension.

A real good example is a desktop computer; various functional subcomponents (hard drives, graphics boards, CPU chips, etc.) can easily be removed and replaced when necessary. It really works well with computers so, why aren’t cars built like this? Well, many are starting to.

Fords are a safe option. These ideas persist through time – they stick. Often, there’s not a lot that a car manufacturer can do about their brand image. That’s true of Volvo. For decades, Sweden’s most famous marque has seemed a bit dull. We all think of Volvos as a little bit boring. The old joke – “boxy but good” – still has value to this day.

    First things first, whenever you capture a video on your cell phone and intend to share it with the world, always hold the cell phone horizontally. Now, this is a video which itself starts off on the wrong note, it is shot vertically. Captured during an Asian wedding, amidst the sounds of Punjabi instruments, it captures a Lamborghini Aventador reversing into a parking space, when the driver suddenly decides to become a DJ and starts revving the 6.5 litre V12. He also missed flame throwers at the wedding and assigned that job to the Lambo. So while everybody was having fun watching the…

    Many amongst us might think that Keanu Reeves is the best man on earth to decode messages in binary and the man probably spends his free time smoking all the cigarettes in the world in a Constantine manner. Few are aware about his love for motorcycles and the fact that he is a co-founder of a motorcycle company called Arch Motorcycles, which has started taking pre-orders for its first motorcycle, the KRGT-1. The engine is a 2032 cc V-twin and unlike traditional V-twins with side-mounted intakes lay in the way of the rider’s leg, disrupting ergonomics and balance, working in conjunction…
  • InvisibleVin: Anti-theft technology that hides the VIN number under layers of paint

    Those who remember the movie Gone in 60 seconds would know how UV light can be used to reveal a plan that involves boosting cars. Now, someone on the right side of law wants to play and has devised a way to hide the car’s Da Vinci code, which is the VIN number. The technology inks an alpha numeric code by passing through the clear coat, paint, and primer to permanently embed the information onto the frame or body part of choice. Invisible under normal light, the phosphorescent mark is clearly seen when exposed to UV light. Most stolen vehicles are broken down or the VIN number is…
  • Maruti wants an image makeover, to recruit sales staff from luxury brands

    Karan Tripathi
    19 Sep 2014 | 9:23 pm
    They say the first impression is the last and everything that follows post that is a lot of trying which mostly yields the same result. Maruti’s image in India is that of a peoples car maker, someone who satiates the needs of the masses rather than their wants. Perhaps the reason why the Kizashi and the Grand Vitara were rather forgettable vehicles in their portfolio, brilliant products nonetheless, but people in India would rather spend their money on a brand which is perceived as premium, rather than a product. So India’s largest car manufacturer has now decided to make some…

  • Trucker’s Truths – There Are Such Things as Bed Bugs

    TJ
    16 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    Bed Bugs When you were a kid, your grandma may have sent you to bed with the old saying, “Sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite.” A common household pest in the U.S. before World War II, these blood-sucking parasites were all but wiped out in the 1940s. Now, they’re back and causing panic in New York subways, Chicago skyscrapers, Cincinnati hotels and highway motels and trucker hostels across the U.S. and Canada. What Are Bed Bugs? Bed bugs are flat, reddish-brown insects about the size of an apple seed. Like mosquitoes, they feed on human blood; but, unlike fleas and lice,…

    11 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    Things Car Drivers Shouldn’t Do Sharing the road with car drivers is a necessary but frustrating evil of being a professional truck driver. Car drivers often seem to be clueless about the vast differences between zipping through traffic on four wheels and maneuvering a heavy-haul 18-wheeler down the highway. Here are a few of the things we wish car drivers wouldn’t do: Trucking Tips #1: Don’t cut in front of a truck without plenty of clearance. Heavy tractor trailers can’t stop on a dime. It takes a truck considerably more time and distance to slow down than a car. If you cut in…

    Traffic Traffic Traffic! Don’t fall into the traffic traps of the busiest highways without being warned first. Here are the worst highways for truckers in terms of frequent traffic problems—keep these in mind when a job calls you to new territory. Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-78 and I-80) Even when you’re in-between cities, the pike makes you contend with sluggish, stop-and-go traffic. Cars tend to enter the short on-ramps at a snail’s pace, and highway construction seems to affect travel times throughout much of the year while barely improving conditions.

  • Chrysler Challenger Hellcat Gets A 825 Horsepower Endorsement

    Horsepower is like trees. The more you have, the better off the world is for it. Well, at least that is what Chrysler could be thinking, as Jalopnik sources hint that the Challenger Hellcat could be boasting a 825 horsepower powerplant, underneath that 707 horsepower one we’ve heard so much about. So why did they get it wrong? For one, marketing teams aren’t exactly sticklers for accuracy, so 707 probably just sounded like their lucky number. Two, considering that Jalopnik’s sources is also saying that the 707 horsepower Hellcat is having a ‘hell’ of a time…
