    Parallel parking isn’t rocket science, people. But it may surprise you, if you live in Boston, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, or any other major city, when someone doesn’t know how to parallel park. And understandably, that’s because not every place in the US has insane population densities like the ones in all of the aforementioned large cities. Why waste a resource on a mandate that doesn’t apply to you if your neighbor lives three hours away? However, an alarming change happened with the education of parallel parking in a state where there exist several, major…

But recently, sales have been increasing for them as they cntinue to just get by with models that are otherwise aging and due for a replacement.

Ford Otosan said it ceased production at its İnönü facility “until further notice” — where the Ford Cargo commercial truck is assembled — as a precaution after some of the strikers did not leave the plant, Reuters reports.

    Like France falling out of love with diesels, Italy is falling out of love with mopeds and scooters due to changing trends. Data published by the National Association of Motorcycle, Bicycle and Accessories — ANCMA — shows moped sales crashing 97 percent, falling from the peak of 600,000 in 1980, to 26,727 units in 2014, Al Jazeera English writes. Sales of 125cc scooters aren’t doing so well, either, slowly declining from 173,343 units sold in 1955, to 37,388 in 2014. The causes for the decline?

Manufacturing in China is just one part of Volvo’s plan to boost sales to 800,000 units annually before 2020. The S60s bound for the United States are built in the Chinese city of Chengdu before transported to Shanghai for export. Volvo also produces the XC60 in Chengdu.

Porsche engineers decided to move forward with a V10 which would delay the Le Mans Prototype by one…

    -If you ever want to not feel special in a Ford Mustang convertible, drive one in Hollywood. That is where we tested this bangin’ yellow 2015 Mustang GT ragtop. Alas, that’s also where many other Americans are testing Mustang convertibles of their own. Or more accurately, of Hertz’s own. Indeed, as eye-searingly yellow as ours was, we still felt like just one of the crowd, what with Mustangs as common as Jack Sparrow impersonators in front of the Chinese Theatre. And even with the “5.0” fender badges, GT buckle on the rear fascia, and the body-color diffuser nestled between its twin…

    -When Volkswagen showed us its prototype gesture-based control setup for issuing infotainment system commands and the like at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, we were impressed. The technology worked nearly flawlessly, even if the various hand motion commands made the user look like they were popping and locking. In fact, the interface was so slick, we declared it very nearly ready for production—a sentiment with which, according to Auto Express, Volkswagen appears to agree.--The tech is slated to hit the Volkswagen Golf in 2016, and it probably wouldn’t arrive in the…

And it won’t only be featured in the brand’s stationery and brochures, it will be found on every new VW’s dashboard, center stack, and infotainment system, as well.--For font nerds, the previous typeface was called VW Utopia, and it’s being replaced by Volkswagen Text; VW OT makes way for Volkswagen Head.

    The new Golf doesn't look all that much different, but the stuff that matters is all under the skin, and it's all about the driving experience. This is simply a very good little car. Find out more in my review over at Metro.

    26 May 2015 | 6:37 pm
    I learnt two things last when when I drove the original Godzilla: Old school Nissan GT-Rs are incredibly fast, and very expensive. I was lucky enough to be handed the keys to Terry Lawlor’s GIO sponsored Nissan GT-R for some hot laps of Sydney Motorsport Park, and I have to say it was a big buzz. I grew up watching these Group A cars, particularly when Jim Richards and Mark Skaife won ... Keep reading
  • Evans brothers settle Canberra dispute

    26 May 2015 | 6:35 pm
    The brothers had a run-in – quite literally – in the service park following the second stage in Canberra. The cause of the argument was a turbo boost problem on Eli’s Citroen, which not only slowed him, but left Simon stuck in a dust cloud behind, unable to pass. Simon later retired with an engine problem, likely caused from his Honda Jazz inducing so much dust while Evans was stuck ... Keep reading

    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…

    In the 1990s, Beanie Babies took the toy market by storm. Over the course of 10 years, Ty Warner went from being a midlevel executive at an existing toy company to becoming a billionaire entrepreneur. How did he do it? What drew so many people to Beanie Babies and caused some of them to spend thousands of dollars or more per household on tiny stuffed animals with little to no actual value? The answer is actually simpler than you might think. And although it may seem like a magic trick, there’s a scientific method behind this madness. You see, Warner achieved his success by mixing up what we…

    In the early 1970s, Fram began a television advertising campaign emphasizing the importance of automotive maintenance. The ads featured a middle-aged technician explaining to the viewers that they can spend a little money now for engine oil and a filter or they can spend a whole lot more later for catastrophic engine failure and replacement. The technician wrapped up each commercial by saying, “It’s up to you…you can pay me now, or pay me later.” It was powerful and effective. In fact, it was so effective that I still remember it…and these ads ran over 40 years ago (when I was in…

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).

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.

    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…

Take, for instance, this 1951 Hudson Hornet four-door sedan for sale on Hemmings.com, a car with patina and character galore, and which appears capable of driving anywhere at anytime, but which looks well broken-in and which the seller says attracts plenty of attention at shows.

  • Neglected Maintenance 101: Wheel Bearings

    NMA
    25 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist It’s the parts unseen — and unthought about — that end up living a hard life. And potentially, making life hard on you. Wheel bearings, for instance. Properly greased and adjusted, they quietly do their job — which is to keep hubs and the wheels bolted to them turning (and rolling) smoothly on their spindles; axles rotating freely, not wobbling, not binding (and possibly,seizing). But people sometimes forget to grease and adjust them — and that can lead to trouble you don’t want, including the possibility of a hub (and…

    This weekly post features recent news stories that highlight and update themes previously covered throughout NMA E-Newsletters and Alerts. Editor’s Note: The city of Asheville, North Carolina, recently announced it was refunding fines for approximately 500 speeding tickets. An audit revealed that the tickets had been issued using improperly calibrated radar guns or by officers who were not certified to use radar. Such errors are not uncommon and can sometimes be systemic throughout a department, as this account of the Pennsylvania State Police “Radargate” Scandal illustrates. It’s a…

  • Things to Know About Tires

    NMA
    18 May 2015 | 8:11 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist The invention of the wheel was a pretty big deal — rolling stuff being a lot easier than carrying (or pushing or dragging) it. The invention of tires was the next great leap forward. Rubber tires allowed wheels to travel more smoothly on rough/uneven surfaces and at faster-than-walking pace without shaking themselves — and the cart or carriage or (eventually) car to which they were bolted to pieces. They also much improved traction — getting you going on slick/slippery surfaces, laterally (in the corners) as well as when you want to slow…

    Life for carmakers selling diesel-powered vehicles in Europe is about to become tougher, if European Union rule-makers have their way. Starting September 2017, a new ‘on-road’ testing regime has been proposed for vehicles with diesel engines, rather than the current laboratory test. The test is designed to identify ‘real world’ emissions from diesel-powered vehicles, as the current lab tests have been criticised for understating the impact from diesels on air qualit...

    “Hard to sell” may be the right name for describing the current Chevrolet Volt generation as the carmaker still has thousands of unsold units. With the new generation of the Chevrolet Volt just around the corner, the North American based automaker is still struggling to sell the remaining examples of the previous version. Rumor has it that 6,000 units are still sitting at dealer lots, and this excludes the 2,779 examples which have been sold in the first four months of the year.

    The Mille Miglia 2015 took place 14-17 May in Italy on the historic roads from Brescia to Rome and back to Brescia. This year’s 1000 Miglia featured a wonderful selection of 438 entrants built between 1927 and 1957 challenging each other and themselves in the modern revival. Far more than a historic car rally, the Mille Miglia Storica is a virtual step back to the era of 1927 to 1957 when these racing cars roared across the Italian countryside and towns at the hands of such greats as Nuvolari, Marzotto, Biondetti, Caracciola and Moss. And as the pictures attest, spectators of all ages…

  • Do You Prefer a Gas Tax or a Miles-Driven Tax?

    26 May 2015 | 1:00 am
    Should owners of electric vehicles have to pay taxes for roads? Some ideas are destined to never work. The hoverboard is one. So is the flying car. A peanut-butter-and-sardine sandwich would also make the list of ideas not likely to catch on. The state of Oregon is about to discover one more: a miles-driven tax in place of a fuel tax. The slow rise of electric and hybrid vehicles, in addition to improved fuel economy in vehicles powered by fossil fuels, has presented state governments with a new problem: how to fund roads with less money coming in from fuel taxes. The solution is to either…

This is also the weekend when we’re encouraged to take a break from work and remember the ancestors who paved the way for us to enjoy life in the United States.

It was a terrific, fruitful discussion. Two 4-person panels brought together expertise and opinions from automakers, energy research groups, electric utilities, and state politicians as they discussed the industry’s current strategies and what needs to change to increase the desirability and sales of Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs).

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I don’t think Toyota should build an inexpensive sports car. If you know anything about me, you know I’m a freak about sports cars. I clamor for rear-wheel-drive, manual-shift, great-handling coupes and roadsters. I was thrilled when the Subaru BRZ came out, and I’ve gushed about the new Porsche Boxster and basically all iterations of the classic 911. My brother-in-law races Miatas, and my father-in-law raced Porsches in his younger years. I love sports cars and everything they represent. There have been rumors that Toyota…

More importantly, it’s an important time to recognize the military men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Some automotive manufacturers extend special discounts to military personnel (and sometimes retired veterans) that might be worth considering if you’re shopping for a new car.

    Image Source It sounds like a tall tale, but oftentimes it’s the dreamers that really do take the world by storm. Headed by a man who owns the first private company to put a liquid-fueled rocket in space, Tesla Motors built a high performance fully electric vehicle off a patent from 1882. By next year they’ll be offering a slightly smaller complement for a medium-tier car price point.

Though self-driving tech will be phased in incrementally, this year promises the first wave of automation, with a quarter of global auto sales expected to incorporate self-driving tech by the 2020’s. On the legislative side, four states and the District of Columbia allow self-driving car testing, and the undeclared legal status of self-driving cars in the remaining 46 states seems to hint at the fact that “it’s legal until it’s illegal.” Check out 10…
  • EcoBoost V6 Perfect for Ford GT

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

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

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

    Vehicle safety and security should always be a top priority, but it is even more important for families with young children. Even the most minor of collisions can result in serious injuries to a child. It is the responsibility of car manufacturers to make sure that their products are as safe to drive as possible.

    After 350 hours of wind tunnel testing – often 24 hours a day – the new Camaro will slip more easily through the wind, and drivers of the Camaro SS will experience a marked improvement in reduced aerodynamic lift. These changes illustrate the lengths the aerodynamics team went to for improved performance, stability, cooling and lower wind noise intrusion “The importance of aerodynamics increases exponentially as we increase vehicle performance,” said Kirk Bennion, Exterior Design manager. “As engine output increases, we need more engine cooling.

    Land Rover marked its 65th anniversary this April with the introduction of the Defender LXV special edition. Since its birth in 1948, Land Rover has developed from producing aluminum-clad work vehicles like the Series I to lavish luxury cars like the latest Range Rover Evoque. The Series I production cars, costing just £450 were clad in aluminum alloy owing to post-war Britain’s shortage of steel. This model sold 200,000 units in ten years, but was soon replaced by the Series II in 1958, which introduced selectable 4WD and a diesel engine. This was quickly followed by…

    There are only three copies of Ferrari Enzo in this country, and this one is believed to be one of them. According to the images of the crash, the accident occurred in Seongbuk-dong, a city in South Korea. On the pictures we can see that the model is simply attached to a pole, and it looks strange. It is difficult to say what has caused the crash, and the report doesn’t specify the cause. According to the pictures, we can assume that the crash occurred at low speed, since we can see that its airbag did not deploy. It is not surprising that the pole damaged the auto severely, especially the…

And the truth is that’s probably was why it was created, but that doesn’t matter, because Porsche has still made an excellent car. Slotting in between the S and the GT3, the GTS actually hits that sweet spot between race car and street car, which the S falls short of and the GT3 overshoots. But this is something that not a lot of people are aware of, thanks to the fact that not…

From the article: Starting under the hood, the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine has been equipped with upgraded pistons, an optimized ECU and a 2.9-liter supercharger. Thanks to these tweaks, the engine develops an impressive 718HP and 572 lb-ft of torque. This enables the model to rocket from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 295 km/h (183 mph). 16 pictures and full article .

    The following are the drivers we least want to see in carparks in our local shopping malls or similar. Give them all a great big raspberry! #1 Able-Bodied Amanda Amanda can be found parking in the disabled park, even though there is nothing the matter with her. She’s “only going in for a minute and nobody uses the disabled car park anyway”. Nobody, that is, except at least half a dozen people in any typical urban neighbourhood, who all fume at Amanda as she makes them take their wheelchairs from the other side of the carpark. One day, they will be rolling past as she gets back into her…

    Hyundai started with names, for some cars they went to numbering but the swing is back to names. The Sonata became the i45 and is back to Sonata. In the three model range, A Wheel Thing kicks of a back to back test with the entry level model, the Active. Powersource. Utterly uncomplicated: a 2.4L engine, with 231 Nm at 4000 rpm and 138 kW at 6000 revs. Transmission is a six speed auto. Fuel economy finished at 7.1L per 100 km after some 630 km.

The D4 S60 stands tall in this list and A Wheel Thing gets reacquainted with the good looking Swede.Powersource. It’s a fuel efficient (4.2L/100 km, from a 67.5L tank) 2.0L diesel, with 133 kW (4250 rpm) and a torque figure that helps the acceleration (7.4 seconds to 100 km/h) of 400 Newton metres.

History is pretty fascinating, so let’s take a look at how road surfaces have changed over the millennia. I’ll just stick to road surfaces, as including the wheres and whys of roading would make this article far too long to read in one sitting. If you’ve ever seen a house where they park on the grass during winter, you soon see why. All that pressure and squelching soon becomes deep, thick mud, where wheels get bogged. Shortly after…

    Losing focus while driving is one of the leading cause of car accidents. Policies have been in place to sanction drivers who use their phones while driving to ensure total concentration on the road. Still, many drivers continue to use mobile phones, fiddling over gadgets and wires, and risking their lives for the sake of multitasking. In the coming days, mobile phone slots in the car will not be as mundane as they used to; they will automatically charge devices.

    Diesel cars have never come so far in the United States. While diesel-powered engines hummed and roared most of the streets of Europe not too long ago, and then axed all too suddenly by the government bearing the blame over air pollution since last year, diesel has never made a prominent mark in the American soil. Price Despite diesel’s greater torque and fuel economy, the fuel’s price per gallon is discouraging enough. Diesel in the US is more expensive than gasoline at the pump. This all started when US President Reagan imposed heavy taxes on diesel-powered trucks in 1981 due to…

    While seeing three-wheeled motorcycles with two wheels at the rear (Delta) is quite common, having two wheels at the front (Tadpole) is more extraordinary. In the past few years, the motorist world has seen various designs of three-wheeled motorcycles. Here we are looking at five models. But first, let us understand the advantages of the tadpole design over the delta. As per dynamic stability, the tadpole design offers safer reaction to quick turns and rapid steering.

Between the epic car chases, and the absurd amount of explosions, the new Mad Max film was a wonderful treat.

    11 May 2015 | 4:35 am
    Many car experts consider the Camshaft as the “brain” of the engine. A camshaft’s primary function is to open and close the engine valves, via the lifters and rocker arms, in time to the piston’s position in the cylinder. This causes the engine to take in air, burn fuel and expel exhaust gases. The camshaft spins at twice the sped of the crankshaft. The camshaft’s lobes push on the lifters and pushrods, which move the rocker arms and open the valves.  Tools: Basic hand tools Gasket scraper Gasket set Small paint brushes Lint-free shop rags Carburettor cleaner…

    Having higher repair costs than regular cars has always been one of the few negative aspects of hybrids, and one of the things that has prevented them from becoming more mainstream. But, this has started to change in recent years, with automakers managing to bring down the cost of hybrid drivetrains, which is the most expensive part in these alternative fuel vehicles.

    It is bad time for Japan-made cars in Australia. Both Toyota and Nissan recalled nearly 300,000 cars this month due to airbag defects. The Australian subsidiaries of the two Japanese carmakers reported this week that they outsourced the production of airbags to a Japanese company, Takata, and were recalling thousands of units to address the issue.

  • What’s Next for Diesel Cars in Europe?

    15 May 2015 | 8:21 am
    Diesel cars have been extensively used across Europe, but just recently, many European countries and cities have declared diesel fuel as dirty, and have since restricted or even banned diesel vehicles altogether. Unlike the US, Europe is more into diesel-powered vehicles, but when the European Commission aggressively campaigned against air pollution, the first one to go was diesel car. In August 2014, the EU sued Britain for breaching pollution limits causing local government officials to axe diesel drivers, fining those who pass the capital. A month later, London Mayor Boris Johnson offered…

    Why A Radar Detector Is Useful To Any Car Owner   Almost everyone out there gets a speeding ticket at some point or another. Most commonly, these tickets are given on long trips, when people tend to push the gas pedal more than they should. Even if they want to drive within the limits, there are situations when you simply cannot keep the speed at the right limit. You cannot always keep your eye on the speedometer, so exceeding the legal speed with just a little can cause a lot of problems. Do it at the wrong time and in the wrong place and chances are you will end up with a speeding…

  • Top 8 Cars To Buy Used Over New

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

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

Their functions are interdependent and therefore, every part of the body needs to be perfectly maintained.  Similarly, your car, although looks simple and aesthetic externally, it is a complex combination of a number of parts and components that need to be perfectly maintained if you want a ‘hassle-free’ drive.  Engine is the heart of your car that moves by ‘internal combustion’ of gasoline.

      I talk to a lot of dealers every month and it’s a well-known fact that the majority are spending more money on paid search than ever before. In fact some paid search budgets are now outranking those of electronic media and direct mail. These budgets have the ability to grow with market demand in the search engines. The market right now is as hot as it’s ever been. With all that said, I think it’s pretty interesting to hear people boast about how much they spend on paid search but can’t explain the first thing about their campaigns.

  • Renault Kwid unveiled in India

    25 May 2015 | 2:03 pm
    Just the briefest of glances is enough to confirm one important fact about Renault's new Kwid: sadly, it bears no relation whatsoever to the similarly-named concept which was revealed at last year's Delhi Auto Show. That's hardly surprising though, because a production model actually has to find buyers. Accordingly, the Kwid is a conventional-looking small five-door hatchback with SUV styling cues. Measuring 3.68 metres (12’ 1”) long, it's the first vehicle to be built on Renault-Nissan's CMF-A platform. Specification details have yet to be released, but Renault seems keen to point out…
  • BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage revealed

    24 May 2015 | 3:31 pm
    Along with the Concept 101 motorcycle, BMW has created a one-off 3.0 CSL Hommage for this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. As that name suggests, it’s a tribute to the 3.0 CSL lightweight homologation special which first appeared in 1972. Certain elements such as the roof-mounted spoiler and large rear wing provide obvious visual links between the two cars. The 3.0 CSL Hommage definitely isn’t just a pastiche, though. Among the modern interpretation’s distinctive features are its widened front wheel arches. Shaped to optimise air flow along the flanks, they appear to…
  • 2016 Fiat Aegea first view

    24 May 2015 | 7:49 am
    Turkey continues to play an important role in Fiat’s manufacturing operations, thanks mainly to the country’s comparatively low labour costs. Illustrating that situation is the all-new Aegea, which was partly developed there and will be built at the Bursa plant. It’s also no coincidence that the Istanbul Motor Show is the chosen venue for the car’s first public appearance. Measuring 4.50 metres (14’ 9”) long, the Aegea is a very traditional three-box compact saloon that can accommodate five people. The styling, while neat and inoffensive, isn’t especially exciting. Indeed, the…
  • Abarth upgrades the 595 Competizione for 2015

    24 May 2015 | 6:09 am
    Abarth has given the 1.4 litre turbocharged engine used in its 595 Competizione a retune. As a result, power is up from 157 bhp (117 kW / 160 PS) to 177 bhp (132 kW / 180 PS). Peak torque meanwhile has risen by 20 Nm (14 lb/ft) to 250 Nm (184 lb/ft). That output is enough to accelerate the 2015 model from rest to 62 mph (100 km/h) in only 6.7 seconds, before propelling it on to a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h). Combined cycle fuel economy is still a respectable 48.7 mpg (5.8 l/100km), though. Sabelt seats, a Monza exhaust system, Brembo brakes and 17” alloy wheels all remain part of the…
  • BMW builds a bagger

    23 May 2015 | 11:53 am
    Concept 101 offers a glimpse of what a BMW bagger-style touring motorcycle might look like. Created for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, it was styled at the firm’s Designworks studio in California and fabricated in collaboration with custom bike specialist Roland Sands Design. While similar models from American manufacturers such as Harley-Davidson, Indian and Victory all feature V-twin motors, BMW has taken a very different approach. That’s because Concept 101 is powered by an in-line six-cylinder engine borrowed from the K Series range. Its 1,649 cc capacity is the equivalent…

    Tow and stow! If you have any little need for towing, capability, and/or space from your vehicle, the immediate recommendation from others is to buy an SUV. Even if you can do everything that you need with a standard car, you always need a big SUV/truck because that’s the world that we live in today. Bigger is apparently always better. Well this Lamborghini Gallardo towing a trailer and strapped with building materials has shattered that mentality by showing that even a super car can be practical.

    Athletic and timeless. One of the most iconic BMW models to ever grace the weaving asphalt on tracks around the globe was the BMW 3.0 CSL. The sports car was a star in the 1970s and had a simple approach to performance focused on cutting weight. Forty years later, the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage is paying tribute to the sports car that had such an impact on the brand’s driving acclaim. Those three special “CSL” letters worn by the original car stood for “Coupe Sport Leichtbau” (coupe, sport, lightweight). Advanced aluminum alloy and Plexiglas windows were used while the interior was reduced…

It only makes sense that the two beasts would do a drag race on an empty runway, right? That’s exactly what the team at Super Street Magazine did with the two vehicles and some others.

By checking the ZHP box on the option sheet, drivers were spoiled with an array of upgraded components from the suspension to the engine, interior, and exterior. The car wasn’t on the same level as the M3, but it served up a lot more fun than your standard 3-Series model. It quickly became an enthusiast favorite and still commands a small premium today on the used car market. BMW is bringing back the special ZHP package with the new…

    The engine control unit is one of the most important parts of your car’s on-board computer.

    Many car experts consider the Camshaft as the “brain” of the engine. A camshaft’s primary function is to open and close the engine valves, via the lifters and rocker arms, in time to the piston’s position in the cylinder. This causes the engine to take in air, burn fuel and expel exhaust gases. The camshaft spins at twice the sped of the crankshaft. The camshaft’s lobes push on the lifters and pushrods, which move the rocker arms and open the valves.  Tools: Basic hand tools Gasket scraper Gasket set Small paint brushes Lint-free shop rags Carburettor cleaner…

    1 May 2015 | 2:19 am
    Steering Tie rod Ends need replacement when there is direct wear and tear on them. There is no maintenance schedule that recommends replacing tie rods or tie rods ends before they expire. In other words, if it isn’t broke, It is not essential to replace it. Tie rods and tie rod ends should be inspected every time the vehicle is lifted since the inspection is quick and easy. Replace the tie rods only when there is any direct wear and tear on them directly. With a few basic tools and a little bit of know-how, anyone can perform the replacement task by their own. Tools Needed: Lug nut…

    Hans Muth is one hell of a designer. 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…

I’m not talking customising as in ‘bobber’ or ‘cafe racer’ customisation, I’m talking of a man who builds the BSA engines that might have been, and mounts then in period specific frames. This man is Doug Fraser of Emu Engineering, and he has been kind enough to take the time to answer some questions about his craft.

    20 May 2015 | 10:53 am
    If you own anything made of metal there's a chance you're going to fight rust sometime in your life. If you own a car that's more than a few years old there's an even larger chance rust will creep into your life (there's a pun there). I decided to break down some common misconceptions about rust and give you a broad overview on how to fix those small rust spots on your car.

    Can I cut sheet metal with a plasma cutter? – Sure you could cut sheet metal with a plasma cutter, if you have one, but it’s can be like hunting ducks with a bazooka. Plasma cutters will easily cut through metal from over 1 inch thick, to thin body work thickness. But if you are planning on cutting sheet metal for body work make sure you plasma cutter has fresh consumables and is "tuned in" with the correct settings or it could leave a rough edge on the metal that is more work to clean up than the actual cutting. Plasma cutting is best used for metal thicker than the 18 gauge that can't…

    23 Apr 2015 | 10:58 am
    One of the big, time consuming jobs on any project vehicle (unless you are building one from scratch with raw sheet metal,) is stripping off years of old paint, primer, and anything else on the body panels. There are as many different ways to strip paint as there are types of paint to apply. Many times, especially with older projects, there may be multiple layers of primer, urethane, lacquer and enamels between the bare metal and the outside world. Matt took an extra hood from a Chevrolet Monte Carlo that was a perfect example of this and used it to show the various mechanical, chemical and…

    After seeing some shocking footage on the news lately, we thought refreshing our minds regarding school bus safety laws might be a good idea. We share the road with school buses so often, that sometimes we forget just how dangerous a situation can become if we’re not being attentive. Everyday, nearly 1.5 children are transported to school in PA. Nationally, 19 school-aged children are killed each year in school bus related crashes. That being said, Pennsylvania’s School Bus Stopping Law is as follows: You must stop when you meet a school bus with red signal lights flashing and…

Its handling is heavenly and with its fitted 12.4-inch vented rotors, two-piston calipers in the front, and 11.3-inch solid rotors with single-piston calipers in the back, brake fade is not a problem. From the brakes to the engine, the WRX’s engine doesn’t growl as loud. I personally love to hear the roar of an engine, and for me this car is best for that. Subaru’s are one of, if not my favorite type of car, they have great history and last forever, parts  are…

    Emmett Young
    30 Apr 2015 | 12:08 pm
    The AAA  Foundation recently released the results of the American Driving Survey, and we were wondering how you compare to the average American.

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

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

    What’s your worst nightmare when driving down icy highways at rush hour? For many, it’s a pileup — and for good reason. Pileups are very dangerous, and oftentimes they’re preventable. Here are some tips to keep you out of harm’s way: In bad weather, remember to take it slow — even if you’re in a rush. You should never tailgate, but it becomes even more dangerous when ice is involved. Leave extra space between you and the vehicle ahead of you. In an emergency, hit the brakes fast and hard. With anti-lock and ABS brakes, pumping the brakes is no longer…

    It’s been a busy month for BMW concepts; on top of the 101 K1600 ‘bagger’, we’ve now apparently got a line of Scramblers to look forward to, if you feel like believing the rumors, of course. With the recent success of the Ducati Scrambler, BMW is looking to break into the market with its own line. At the moment, this is nothing more than informed speculation but when the rumor mill is working over time, it has to be based on something, right? So, there’s nothing concrete at the moment but early indications show that the new BMW Scrambler will be based on the R nineT, the fourth most…

  • Classic Tyres From Vredestein, Designed For The Vintage Look For Vintage Cars

    Jason Stevens-Read
    22 May 2015 | 5:22 am
    Which Tyres? have spoken about Vredestein tyres and what used to be a small range called the Classic for older and vintage models. Well a lot has changed since our last post a few years ago, we still have the Sprint Classic, but in more sizes, we have the Snow Classic and the option of snow spikes and finally the Grip Classic. Lets start with the Sprint Classic. With its tread design straight from the ‘golden era’ of motoring, you’s be forgiven if you thought they’d perform in the same way. Not so, these tyres, and the full range, even come with EU label ratings! It…
  • The Yokohama ‘Classic Car’ Tyre For The Mini, The A008

    We’ve all seen the new Mini produced by BMW, and yes, its a great modern car, but, what if you want the classic look and feel of the original, then you want the right tyres to go with it. Classic car tyres is becoming a huge market. With two distinct areas of older cars, the total modification so that only the shell remains or the careful restoration to its natural beauty. Modern tyres now provide all the grip, stability, handling and fuel economy that just wasn’t thought about 30 or 40 years ago. So we are going to look at the 10″ tyre from Yokohama, the A008.

  • The Euro Stretch Tyre Look For VW, Right, Wrong Or Illegal?

    Jason Stevens-Read
    21 May 2015 | 1:22 am
    Which Tyres? are taking a step into a new area and the ever popular Euro look for stretched tyres on VW’s, is it right, wrong or even legal? There is a huge debate about this style of set up with two very clear camps and opinions. So where should we start and, more importantly, what’s our view point? As reviewers of tyres and wheels, we really do like the style and the look and understand that VW owners have embraced this whole sub-culture and made it their own.  We actually feel that, as with any other forms of modifications, there is a limit from uber cool to uber stupid.

  • The AD08 and AD08R, Yokohama’s Road and Track Tyre.

    Do you have a very nice sports car? Ever fancied taking it on a track but not sure that your standard road tyres are up to the job? Then let us introduce you to the Yokohama Advan Neova AD08 and AD08R tyres. We’ll start with the AD08, as there are subtle differences between the two tyres, although at a glance you maybe wouldn’t notice. As you can see from the picture above, there is a very distinct tread pattern which features on both tyres. Limited tread grooves and a softer rubber compound provide both tyres with great levels of wet grip for the road and lots of dry grip for the…
  • Which Tyres? Reviews The Yokohama Neova Advan V550

    Jason Stevens-Read
    18 May 2015 | 4:33 am
    The Yokohama Neova Advan V550 does have good levels of performance but its main priority is comfort and quiet. This is a tough tyre from Japanese manufacturer Yokohama, and as with lots of their products, it is very good for the job it does. It has a softer ‘V’ directional tread pattern than others you may find, and this is why it has great levels of wet and dry grip, but with low road noise and a comfortable ride. All sounds good so far, but is there a catch? It is a very good tyre, not lots of sizes and availability is somewhat limited, but they are out there.  The lifespan of…

    Subhash
    26 May 2015 | 6:43 pm
    The Nissan X-Trail was once a rugged but boxy looking machine that burst onto the scene in the early 2000s as an passenger vehicle with the looks of an off-roader. Its replacement in 2007 retained the same blocky overall look, but with more rounded panels and elongated proportions. This new X-Trail diverts completely from its predecessors, building on a Common Module Platform engineered and shared with Nissan’s French partner, Renault.

    The results of the SKYACTIV program have been two-fold for Mazda. – 15% better fuel economy – 15% better performance on regular octane fuel (87) Here’s where the real stats get interesting.

  • Which part of your car is most neglected when you send it for servicing?

    admin
    26 May 2015 | 3:52 pm
    ANSWER: Most NEW car owners schedule servicing for their cars and the dealership does what is necessary as the car is under warranty. However when the warranty is over, car owners tend to look at neighbourhood workshops that have been recommended to them by family and friends and here is where they choose to ignore to get some very important items checked. First to be ignored is their car battery which in recent years has had a reduced lifespan from 24 months to less than 16 months. You also need to check the spare tire to make sure there is enough air and the sidewalls have not cracked. You…

With it the era of naked bikes derived from stripped down sports bikes came to an end, and the first motorcycle designed around the engine as an ornamental element came into being, which, along with its cutting-edge technology, was equipped with radial valves, a removable gearbox and SBK power.

    The last thing you ever want to think about is the wiring in your Volkswagen. You only want it to work correctly every single time, right? You know your vehicle needs enough voltage to start the engine. But what about other components that need a certain amount of voltage to work properly? What happens when there isn’t enough voltage running through your vehicle’s wiring to keep components fully juiced up? They fail. Or they wear out quickly. Either one is a headache to deal with. Here are a few problems than can occur if you have insufficient voltage in your wiring: Fuel Pump: When the…
  • Coolest Vintage VW Ads

    Elizabeth Puckett
    19 May 2015 | 12:54 am
    Volkswagen has always been brilliant in their advertising and marketing campaigns. Always funny and a little weird, the ads you see today have evolved from some really good material of the past. Here are some of the neatest VW ads from the classic era. It isn’t so. Just to be clear, Volkswagen cars are not wound up by key, and the winding key mod was not, and is not, standard. How funny that they needed to clarify that! However, there are a lot of really cool things that are standard and this ad lays them out. Think small. VW has always been proud of their Beetle, and many of the vintage…

  • Volkswagen Dash Lights Not Working

    Jason Lancaster
    11 May 2015 | 8:51 am
    You rely upon the dash lights to see critical information on your instrument panel, so if they’re not working, you want to get them fixed right away. Without functioning dash lights, you can miss important information about your vehicle. It is best to start by evaluating the problem one step at a time. The easiest solutions should be the first ones you try. First, there is a dashboard dimmer switch, so your first step is to make sure that it has not been turned down. Your owner’s manual will show you where it is on your Volkswagen. Second, check the fuses. A bad fuse can keep the…

  • A CAR SHOW AT A HIGH SCHOOL HAD A FEW COOL SURPRISES IN THE MIX

    24 May 2015 | 10:33 pm
    We took in a car show at a high school this past weekend and found a few surprises at the event. Most of the attendees were well beyond their high school years, and so were their rides, but the show was an education for us at MSCC. The first surprise was a 1984 Pontiac Fiero, a somewhat forgotten sports car from the Iron Chief. My only memory of Fieros was a co-worker who was coerced into co-ownership of one with his then-girlfriend. Neither the car nor the chick stayed around very long in this cat’s life.

Many baby boomers spent a fair amount of time on these public service vehicles because that was the only transportation option. This had nothing to do with saving the planet or greenhouse gas issues-you did the mass transit gig out of necessity.

    There were a lot of beauties at a recent car show, probably too many to list in one article, but one stood above the rest for me that day: a 1964 Buick Wildcat. The car was a white two-door hardtop and it embodied everything that was great about the mid-60s automotive style in North America. The Wildcat name was in its second year as a stand alone Buick model in ’64 and it wore its newfound label independence as well as any car from the era.

    Current Nissan LEAF lessees may be eligible for a credit of up to $5,000 if they buy their cars at the end of the lease period instead of turning them back in. Here’s how the offer from Nissan works. If you are leasing a 2012 or 2013 LEAF and the end of your lease is near, Nissan is offering you $5,000 to buy your car instead of turning it in. People leasing a 2011 model are eligible for a $1,500 credit. Nissan calls it a Gross Payoff discount, but it’s really a bribe not to turn your car in. Why?

    Stephen Edelstein

    Since the Tesla Model S launched in 2012, one of the only persistent reliability issues with the electric car has been malfunctioning door handles. When not being used, Model S door handles retract electrically so they’re flush with the bodywork. This makes the car more aerodynamic, but can be a problem when those handles refuse to emerge from the doors. And according to Consumer Reports, that can still happen with a brand-new Model S. The magazine recently took delivery of a 2015 Model S P85D, but found that the driver’s door handle refused to work, “effectively rendering…

They reach 400 parts per million for the first time since the agency began measurements. “This marks the fact that humans burning fossil fuels have caused global carbon dioxide concentrations to rise more than 120 ppm since pre-industrial times,” said Pieter Tans, lead scientist of NOAA’s Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network. He said half of that growth has occurred since 1980. The International Energy Agency reported in March that…

  • How to Get the Best Deal on a Commercial Vehicle

    Aleena Mashhood
    29 Apr 2015 | 6:46 am
    The high initial costs and potential maintenance and servicing bills make commercial vehicles a significant investment for all SMEs. The problem is that they’re crucial to the way modern supply chains operate so it’s essential that you’re able to finance them securely. Since buying outright or taking out risky loans can potentially damage your business, consider leasing the vehicle instead. How Does It Work? Leasing vehicles is very similar to renting them, except that rather than entering into a contract for just a few weeks a leasing agreement generally works over 24-60 months. You…

Thus is the case in the current we-say, they-say debate about longer and heavier trucks on the highways. According to The New York Times, it was an organization known as the Coalition Against Bigger Trucks that footed the bill for David Latimer, a retired South Carolina state trooper and vice chairman of the National Troopers Coalition, to go to Washington and warn Capital Hill of the dangers to good American citizens if 33-foot…

    When most jet manufacturers are actually cutting back on the lines of code used in the creation of their aircraft, Ford has actually gone a step further by writing a staggering 10 million lines of code for its super car, Ford GT, which was unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show in January. According to Ford Performance Chief Engineer, Jamal Hameedi, they have to acquire ‘off-the-shelf’ auto parts from technology suppliers, so software customization wasn’t possible, which resulted in more lines of code being written to sustain the car’s excessive computing power.

    Brake checking on a highway is a bad idea even at the best of times, let alone when the vehicle you are checking is a 40-tonne truck. The driver of the BMW X5 in this clip obviously has some sort of beef with the truck driver in this clip, as he speeds in front before slamming on the brakes not once but a handful of times. Good thing the truckie has the whole incident recorded on dashcam or it might have been too unbelievable to explain that the BMW X5 driver took on a 40-tonne truck on purpose.

    Lamborghini has unleashed its most brutal road-going model yet – the new Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Super Veloce. As its name would suggest, the 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine in the Aventador SV is now producing 750hp – or 560kW to you and I – along with a huge 690Nm lump of torque. The Aventador SV also drops 50kg from its already lean mass resulting in an incredible 2.03kg/hp power-to-weight ratio, dropping the sprint from 0 to 100km/h to just 2.8 seconds with a top speed of more than 350km/h.

Imagine the thrill we got when we found out that someone is now selling a second hand Ariel Atom… Yes, an Ariel Atom (people occasionally spell it Aerial Atom or Arial Atom but it’s actually Ariel)- the bare bones lunatic vehicle that looks like a go kart, handles like a go kart and launches like a scalded twin turbo cheetah (on fire.) The same company that let Jeremy Clarkson put one of their models to the test and gave him some impromptu racetrack face reconstruction in the process: No you can’t put it on the roads…

    We all know that in today’s world, one of the bitterest competitions being led is between law enforcement that tries to catch speedy drivers off guard and fine them or take away their driver’s license and the drivers that use radar detectors, laser jammers and other ways of avoiding the law enforcement. The more adapted and advanced the speed guns and the laser guns the police use are, the more adapted the radar detectors will become in time and therefore the competition is very tight.

  • 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…

    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…

Somehow she has gotten her hands on a new Corolla Wagon, coming to Canada soon as the Scion iM, and a driver’s license. I wonder how much she paid for the latter, as she certainly didn’t take any kind of test. As the old saying goes, if you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all.

    Few things are cooler than a Camaro with huge drag tires. Especially this 2010 Camaro SS, built by Redline Motorsports with a 416 cubic inch LS motor and a ProCharger YSI supercharger thrown in the mix. Air and fuel go in one end, and nasty burnouts go out the other. On its first run the Camaro gets a late start, but it quickly covers it back up against a 2010 Nissan GT-R with a claimed tune and midpipe. We like to assume that the driver was thinking of giving the GTR a head start. What’s the old saying about displacement again? We reckon this thing will hit mid-8s again, and take on anyone…

  • Report: Maryland removes the parallel parking portion from its driver’s test

    26 May 2015 | 3:15 pm

Why waste a resource on a mandate that doesn’t apply to you if your neighbor lives three hours away?However, an alarming change happened with the education of parallel parking in a state where there exist several, major metropolitan areas,…

  • 5 Cars That Were Ahead of Their Time

    15 May 2015 | 7:59 am
    Innovation is a truly beautiful thing, and there’s no better place to prove it than the auto industry. With today’s cookie-cutter midsize sedans and crossovers, however, it may seem like designers have abandoned their imaginations. The thing is, auto designers have to exercise a certain amount of caution when including new ideas. Sometimes the public isn’t ready for them. Sometimes the technology simply doesn’t exist yet. Sometimes, the idea is just poorly executed. Here’s a few examples of cars that changed the face of motoring just a few years too early.

    Do you remember what it was like waiting to turn 16? If you had a later birthday than most people in your class, like I did, it seemed like an eternity. It felt like everyone I knew had not only gotten their permit, but moved on from chauffeuring their parents around and gotten their license. Every single after-school activity seemed to be predicated on car ownership. Friends within walking distance were forever scheduling events that were at least a 20-minute drive away. It wasn’t fair. I had waited long enough. I was ready to drive. Picture may or may not be me.   I’m old enough…

    Anything I saw about it will ruin it, so just watch and enjoy: Give the guy who created that a raise. SPOILERS BELOW When watching it for the first time, I didn’t notice anything until the canopy. I thought “has that always been there?” That was 37 seconds in though, and near the end of the ad. I then thought that maybe the idea was that the buildings were trying to get closer to the car, but I didn’t see anything else change. By the time the narrator came in, I realized I had been totally tricked. Tricked, but impressed. I had never heard of the Skoda Fabia before,…
  • Audi Creates Diesel Fuel Solely from Water, Carbon Dioxide and Renewable Energy

    Engineers at Audi have reportedly created a carbon-neutral diesel fuel comprised solely of water, carbon dioxide and renewable energy sources. The German car manufacturing giant is actually already using the crystal clear “e-diesel” to power the Audi A8 owned by Johanna Wanka, Germany’s Federal Minister of Education and Research, signaling that the “e-diesel” may not be far from public use.

  • Ford to only build 37 Shelby GT350R Mustangs this year

    28 Apr 2015 | 7:10 am
    This is the one I had my eye on. Unfortunately, it looks like I won’t be able to get my hands on one. Ford just announced that they’re only building 37 Shelby GT350R Mustangs in 2015. What a bummer! This 500 horsepower V8 is a beast. I suppose I’ll settle for the GT350, which is still awesome. Oh wait, Ford is only making 100 of those as well. Good luck getting the 350R though. The 37 will be sure to be snatched up quickly and many will be sold for far more than they’re worth.   Sigh. Why are all the best cars so hard to get? Congrats to the 37 people who get to…

    A “Dadbod” is a newly coined term now trending in media. It was introduced to the world by Clemson University sophomore Mackenzie Pearson as she referred to any man—father or bachelor—with a physique that’s a “nice balance between a beer gut and working out.” “It’s more human, natural, and attractive,” she adds. For this writer, though, the term refers to more than just the male physic. At this certain stage of manhood, true machismo can be measured by embracing fatherhood—wholeheartedly.
