  • France To Provide $22,000 Subsidy For Diesel Drivers Who Switch To EVs

    While France already offers a subsidy of $8,400 for consumers who purchase a new electric vehicle, a proposed piece of legislation would see that figure expand for drivers of diesel cars, bringing the total subsidy to a staggering $22,000. The bill, proposed by Segolene Royal (France’s minister for ecology, sustainable development and energy, and a one-time Presidential candidate) would provide enhanced subsidies for drivers of diesel-powered cars, according to the International Business Times.  With diesel cars being extremely popular in France, the bill would likely give drivers…

    I’m an economist, and do more than think about the industrial organization (IO: “structure, strategy, conduct and performance”) of the auto industry. Here I present overall employment data and then focus on the automotive component. For a recent item on inflation and interest rates see here at my blogspot blog, Autos and Economics. We’re now in the 6th year since the bottom fell out of the economy in 2008. Since then we’ve had monetary policy that in past environments would be considered strong stimulus. However, with no inflation, zero interest rates don’t…

  • Report: Acura RLX Sport Hybrid delayed for technical issue

    admin
    20 Aug 2014 | 7:26 am
    Acura was on schedule to launch its anticipated RLX Sport Hybrid but after a technical issue, Acura’s senior vice president, Mike Accavitti, confirmed the model is delayed. After speaking with Wards Auto, specifics weren’t disclosed by Accavitti, though he said that “it just hasn’t met with our expectations yet.” Speculation suggests there is a problem with the SH-AWD and the powertrain, especially since its a similar system to the one used in the Acura NSX Prototype, which recently caught fire. Due to the delay, the RLX Sport Hybrid is delayed until next…
  • Report: Rolls-Royce CEO confirms development of SUV crossover

    20 Aug 2014 | 5:23 am
    Rolls-Royce has been known to be working on a new SUV crossover now that Bentley is working on their own. Additionally, SUV crossovers are high on the demand, which further bolsters both Bentley’s and Rolls’ venture into the segment, despite being rather blasphemous to the brand’s image. And after speaking with Rolls’ CEO, Törsten Müller-Ötvös, AutoGuide heard from the man himself of confirmation for Rolls’ interest in a crossover. However, Müller-Ötvös also said that the model has yet to be approved for production. That means the model is most likely…

    The current second generation Cadillac SRX has been with us since 2009 and is soon due for a replacement. Supposedly confirming the arrival of the third generation model is Cadillac’s chief engineer, Dave Leone, who spoke to Bloomberg recently. The new next gen SRX is scheduled for a launch sometime in late 2015 as a 2016 model. This is the first word to surface regarding a new SRX, following rumors and reports of Cadillac’s efforts to introduce a new flagship sedan. When it first came out, the Cadillac SRX was a rear-wheel drive crossover, marking the brand’s first venture…

It’s still in the planning stage, but should all go well, the new Tribeca is expected to grow in size, but not by significant margins. Additionally, Subaru’s unsure as to how to place the model competitively–should it just be a…

Infiniti and Lexus are also supposedly developing their own to join the newly established market and now, Cadillac apparently wants to follow with their own version.

    21 Aug 2014 | 10:31 am
    Our Ford sources have confirmed a Reuters report that claims Ford is readying a new lineup of dedicated hybrids to take on the Toyota Prius. The new range, set to debut in late 2018, will ride on the next-generation C-platform that underpins the current Ford Escape and Focus. Dubbed “C240″, volume has been pegged at 120,000 units annually, with production taking place at the Wayne, Michigan assembly plant. In addition to a range of bodystyles, both regular hybrid and plug-in versions are set to be offered. Although much talk has been made of the distinct nature of these new…

    The latest Q2 2014 data from Experian was released this week, and key metrics like repossessions, loan delinquencies and outstanding balances have all seen increases. Outstanding balances were up nearly 12 percent, rising to an all-time high of $839.1 billion dollars. 60-day delinquencies were up 7 percent to 0.62 percent in Q2, while 30-day delinquencies were up to 2.39 percent up from 2.38 percent year over year. Repossessions were up by 70 percent in the same time period, sitting at 0.62 percent. Melinda Zabritski, Experian’s senior director of automotive finance, noted that…

According to the paper, the next-generation Golf will debut in 2017, and borrow the upcoming Passat‘s suite of advanced safety and tech features. A new infotainment system, automatic braking with pedestrian detection, a self-parking system and distinctive styling will be the major changes for the MK8. Both the Passat and the MK8 Golf will use VW’s MQB architecture, but don’t expect to see…

For weeks I had been psyching myself up mentally for an automotive overload, and as I arrived into the Carmel Valley early on Wednesday morning my mind was quickly blown: an Aston Martin DB4 whizzed passed, followed minutes later by a DB9 Spyder Zagato. Little did I know my mind being blown was to be a reoccurring effect in the evening to come.  When event tickets cost close to $400 a pop, it isn’t likely that attendees will be showing…

    Words and Photos: Michael Juergens from Quattroworld Many people dream of the open road, but they are stuck forever in traffic. I didn’t have the freedom of empty Nevada highways. My daily commute restricts me to Boston traffic. This slow, deliberate time allowed me to get a feeling for the car in an everyday setting. Sitting in traffic with the RS 7 certainly allowed for some time to reflect. The seats are comfortable, and they provide just the right amount of support whether I was sitting in traffic or driving spiritedly. Pulling the gear selector back and moving into drive (instead of…

It’s truer than a detective busting buyers in a Dallas club: Matthew McConaughey is the latest celebrity tapped to help Lincoln sell Lincolns, and the automaker has released a preview video of what’s to come from the tie-up. McConaughey is seen cruising in a Lincoln MKC, coolly saying “sometimes you need to go back to actually move forward.” More videos and TV spots are on their way, but for now they’re likely traveling in reverse before being thrust ahead. 2015 Lincoln MKC Driven: There’s…
  • 2015 Corvette Stingray Eight-Speed Automatic Driven: Eight Ways to Shift Your Pants

    21 Aug 2014 | 2:39 pm
    The race to higher gear counts is in full swing, and automatic gearboxes are leading the way. Driven partly by marketing one-upmanship and partly by the need to meet ever-tougher fuel-economy mandates, eight-speed autoboxes are everywhere, Chrysler’s running a nine-cogger in select models, and 10-speeds—from Ford, GM, Volkswagen, and others—are just around the corner. The General’s own in-house-developed eight-speed units (for its trucks and rear-drive V-8 cars) are just making an appearance after work on them had all but stopped during the company’s plunge into bankruptcy in 2009.

    Pretty much everything about Infiniti’s fully functional Q50 Eau Rouge concept car is worthy of exclamation points. It looks amazing! It has the Nissan GT-R’s twin-turbocharged V-6! Infiniti is probably going to build it! Yet for all the superlatives, the “Eau Rouge” appellation might remain a mystery to some. To clear the air—possibly in advance of a green light for production—Infiniti has released a video to help explain the significance of the moniker. The video thus is set at Spa-Francorchamps, the world-famous racetrack whose winding 4.4 miles of pavement…

Bavaria’s latest breed of bullet-resistant SUVs is the Security Plus version of the X5; it’s scheduled to debut at the Moscow auto show next week.

  • 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport Long-Term Test Update: All Aglow in Opulent Blue

    We still get a little tingly when we look at our long-term Opulent Blue Cadillac CTS Vsport test car, and the tingle sinks in deeper when we think about the power under that sultry hood. With its twin turbos, this car makes as much power as another high-profile four-door in our long-term fleet, the Audi S7. But the Caddy uses just 3.6 liters and six cylinders to make its 420 horsepower; the Audi, a 4.0-liter V-8. In our initial testing, the CTS hit 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and posted 0.95 g on the skidpad. The twin-turbo’s brutal, addictive shove means that we tend to arrive at the end of long…

    Dynamic performance and efficiency: The new Audi TT impressively combines both qualities. Compared with the predecessor model, the compact sports car scores high with an increase in power output of up to 14 percent and a simultaneous decrease in greenhouse gas emissions of 11 percent. As the premium vehicle manufacturer states in its new life cycle assessment of the third-generation TT, this means that each car in the series saves around 5.5 tonnes of greenhouse gases over its entire life cycle. This includes not just carbon dioxide, but other substances such as methane, nitrous oxide and…

    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…

  • A Second Life for EV Batteries?

    Doug Newcomb
    18 Aug 2014 | 6:16 pm
    Driving an electric vehicle is considered good for the environment since it doesn’t use gas and causes zero tailpipe emissions. But one question that EV naysayers ask – and nags at the owners of these green vehicles – is what happens to the battery pack when the car comes to the end of its life. While the number of lithium-ion battery packs used by EVs is dwarfed by the prevalence of traditional (and highly toxic) lead-acid 12-volt car batteries, a recent report predicts that there will be between 1.3 million and 6.7 million used EV batteries in 20 years. Lead-acid batteries…

    Photo by Ford Motor Company It’s not surprising that a J.D.

Kristin Kolodge, executive director of driver interaction at J.D.

    Most motorists have seen drivers ignore a traffic sign and fail to stop or yield — and have probably been guilty of it themselves. But what would happen if those traffic signs didn’t exist and were replaced with electronic signs and warnings via an in-dash screen? And the warnings would only be shown if another vehicle was present at an intersection? That’s what researchers at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute want to find out in an experiment that relies on technology rather than metal signs. The research is designed to not only provide safe traffic flow, but also save time…
  • Automakers Get Failing Grades on Voice Recognition

    Anyone who has ever used a car’s voice recognition (VR) system knows how frustratingly inconsistent the technology can be. While it works well in some vehicles, VR often struggles to perform even simple tasks such as calling a contact in the address book of a connected Bluetooth phone and finding a navigation destination. Kristin Kolodge, a director at J.D. Power and Associates, has some advice for automakers on how to fix the problem: Don’t add new VR features until you can first get the basic ones working well.

  • Should you seal your driveway?

    Jil McIntosh
    15 Aug 2014 | 9:53 am
    Driveway sealing has a bit of a bum rap with many homeowners, primarily because there are a lot of semi-shady characters knocking on doors with an offer to do the job "because we have some left over from the job down the street." There are benefits, and you can do it yourself, but if you're paying someone, use the same smarts that you would for any home repair job. Find out more in my Driving Force column over at Metro.

    INGOLSTADT – In 1989, at the Frankfurt Internationale Automobil Ausstellung in Frankfurt, Audi unveiled the brand’s first diesel-powered passenger car. The Audi 100 was equipped with a 2.5-liter inline-five cylinder turbodiesel engine – a TDI in Audi/VW parlance –  with direct fuel injection and a fully electronic engine management. TDI stands for Turbo Diesel Injection and the 100 was the first within the Volkswagen family to use the TDI label.

    Do you keep track of much you spend on gasoline every month? What would you do with a spare twenty, fifty, or hundred dollars? Making some small changes can save a nice chunk of cash over time. The biggest change, of course, is switching from a gas sucking pig into something that’s more fuel efficient. But if you need to have a big truck or SUV, you need to have it. No arguments here.

  • 2015 Ford F-150: 30 MPG Magic?

    7 Jun 2014 | 7:43 am
    The thought of a half-ton pickup truck achieving 30 miles per gallon (MPG) with a gasoline engine was unfathomable, just a few years ago. A 30 MPG rating for the 2015 Ford F-150 would be nothing short of remarkable. While the F-150′s gas mileage ratings have not been released for 2015, engineering leaps at Ford may have put that magic thirty within reach. The savings potential is based on three core technologies: lightweighting, displacement downsizing, and aerodynamics. The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for years on end. A significant drop in the F150’s fuel…

At its core, it asks a simple question: is it possible to increase the fuel efficiency of an older vehicle and to what degree? But it wraps that question in a bigger idea, specifically: can you bring new life to old paint by infusing high tech on a low budget? Ain’t Fuelin’ draws inspiration from a host of big time shows that paved the way, from Overhaulin’ and Mythbusters to Pimp My Ride and Top Gear. It’s been a long time coming…

    While it might have been hard to image a Chrysler that could hit the 36 mile per gallon (MPG) mark just a few years back, the engineers have nailed the number with the 2015 Chrysler 200. But fuel efficiency is just the starting point for the completely redesigned model. The 2015 200 is new from the ground up, packed with technology, and brilliantly executed. It’s time to leave your impressions of the outgoing model (and the Sebring on which it was based) behind. The 2015 puts Chrysler into the thick of the hotly contested mid-size sedan market. The new model is available with a…

The S600 evolved from the company’s line of S-roadsters - including the debut Honda automobile, the S360 - and became an important part of the company’s entry into the automotive world. In the early 1960s, the world was in love with the roadster. Some of today’s most prized designs like the E-Type Jaguar and Lotus Elan were introduced in that time, and Honda decided to take what they had learned from building motorcycles and apply…

It isn’t a double-clutch unit, but GM is adamant that the Corvette’s new 8-speed will shift just about as well as the best double-clutch designs. Shift times will be so short that the automatic will beat the manual transmission in a sprint to 60, albeit barely.

As this is New Car Week here at Car Lust, I thought I'd take the opportunity to offer a little comparison as to the driving experience of the two. I do this because probably not that many of you have been regular drivers of anything made in the 1980s, let alone the…

    Well, the Monterey auctions have come and gone, and I have to say I wasn't really blown away by the numbers Porsche lots brought this time around, and only one lot really surprised me. There were certainly a few bargains had by savvy buyers, and some of the weekend's biggest Porsche lots were either "No Sales", or "No Shows". There were only a couple of lots that exceeded their pre-auction estimates, and the vast majority were either on the low end of their estimate spectrum, or below. A whopping 27 Porsches left their respective auction stages without selling, accounting for more than a…

We've been through them before, and they tend to be a little bit boring, usually filled with information that we already know, and definitely packed with some puffy verbiage that overemphasizes the-car-in-question's traits. In this case, the word "sports car" was bandied about quite a lot. As I sat in the small conference room of our hotel, I kept getting irked by Porsche's choice to use that phrase to…

    There's no doubt that any Porsche 911 is a formidable track weapon. However, in the skilled hands of a professional driver like Patrick long, a vintage 1967 Porsche 911 S can be dangerously fast. Dangerous even to faster, more powerful cars. The video below, all 15 glorious minutes of it, was shot last week at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca during the 2014 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. From the viewpoint of Patrick's visor cam you can watch and listen as he uses all 8100 rmps of the 911's flat-six to chase down, faster more powerful opponents. At times, it's more battle of Porsche against…
  • 5 Reasons Why Porsche Should Build The Cayman GT4

    Bradley Brownell
    15 Aug 2014 | 7:02 am
    In an earlier post we discussed the rumored "Cayman GT4" and why the motoring media has probably gotten it all wrong. They're saying it will be a 400 horsepower, mid-motor GT3 for about $100 grand. That's arbitrary conjecture, and if I'm honest, just plain absurd. It's absurd mostly because Porsche has proven time and time again that they aren't interested in having brand-infighting, not wanting to see the Cayman compete directly with the 911. Now that we've laid our reasons why we think both that the pre-production car we've been seeing in the press is not a Cayman GT4, and that a GT4 is…

  • New York City, 1939

    Daniel Strohl
    21 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    Many of us know Dorothea Lange for her portraits of Americans suffering through the Great Depression in the West and Midwest, so it’s odd to see this photograph that she took of the hustle and bustle of midtown Manhattan – specifically of traffic on Fifth Avenue as it approaches 57th Street – in July 1939. A couple other items of note here too: Modern New Yorkers might naturally think Lange and the double-decker bus she rode in were headed south because, after all, this section of Fifth Avenue is a one-way street. However, the changeover of Fifth to one-way took place in…
  • Hemmings Find of the Day – 1962 ZAZ 965A

    Daniel Strohl
    21 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    It might look like a Fiat, but this 1962 ZAZ 965A for sale on Hemmings.com shares only a passing resemblance and size with the Italian minicar. The more one looks, the more one sees how far the Ukranian carmaker diverged from the design of the Fiat 600, from the V-4 engine architecture to the torsion bar suspension, to the shape of the car’s rear. This particular ZAZ, one of the later upgraded versions, somehow made its way to the West Coast, where it went through a full and meticulous restoration. From the seller’s description: ZAZ-965 Zaporozhets model was made between 1960 and…

With most disputes over the ownership of the former Packard plant on East Grand Boulevard in Detroit resolved, the new owner of the plant told the Detroit Free Press this week that he intends to begin cleanup soon and eventually restore some of the plant with the help of Albert Kahn Associates, the firm named for the man who designed the plant in 1903. Though Peruvian developer Fernando Palazuelo paid $405,000 for the 40-acre factory complex – vacated by Packard in 1956 – at a Wayne County…
  • First 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale by Scaglietti tops $26 million in Monterey

The appeal of works competition Ferraris is their exclusivity, as the available population of cars is often just a fraction of total production. Maranello built 453 examples of the 275 GTB for consumers, but only three 275 GTB/C Speciales were assembled to contest the 1965 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The first car built, chassis 06701, never saw competition in period, but its rarity and documented history helped it achieve a price of $26.4 million (including fees) last Saturday, making it the top…

  • The Open Road: Keeping Interstates Toll-Free Protects the Economy and Preserves Americans’ Freedom

    NMA
    19 Aug 2014 | 7:31 am
    By Julian Walker, Guest Columnist  Americans love the open road — it symbolizes the freedoms our country provides and a sense of exploration that has helped build our nation. The vast interstate network of asphalt and pavement for decades has facilitated people’s travel to places near and far for commerce or recreation. Now, that free system is under attack by some policymakers who want to roll back longstanding restrictions on tolling interstates. Doing that, as Massachusetts Transportation Department chief Richard A. Davey suggested in a July 25 Roll Call guest opinion column, would…

    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Small engines can do big things . . . in not-little cars. If they’re turbo-diesels. And if the car is a new Mercedes E-Class sedan. The 2014 E250 sedan, to be precise. It’s a 4,200 pound luxury sled propelled by a teensy (2.1 liter) turbo-diesel four. The only such — and smallest such — engine in this class. It makes Brobdingnagian power: 369 ft.-lbs. of torque — more than many V-8s twice its size — and delivers untouchable fuel efficiency (EPA says 45 on the highway and you can do better than that if you drive it…

American Honda Executive Vice President of Sales John Mendel thinks that level exists, and we may be getting very close to it. According to Automotive News, Mendel believes that finding more customers in the market could require pursuing subprime buyers and offering longer-term loans. However, he refuses to use those tactics. While selling models this way can improve things briefly, the…

Because while Dallara is, like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani, a performance automaker based in northern Italy, it focuses on racing cars and doesn't produce cars for the road. At least not under its own name, anyway. But that's about to change. Speaking with Car magazine, company founder Gian Paolo Dallara indicated that his firm is working on its own sports car project that will hit the market in 2017.

It is early days, but the film is opening to mixed reviews, from gamers to film goers alike. There is a likely hood that the film will not be a huge success, with movie review sites such as The Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic giving the movie 23% and 37% retrospectively, although interestingly enough IMDB has given the movie a much more decent score of 7.5/10.

What’s more, although BMW’s logic for building it might be questionable, at least there’s no question that it does perform like a BMW, particularly in guano-frosted-‘shrooms X6M form. That thing is so absurd you really can’t help but love it. Of course, a tuned X6M should be even more lovable and, if you ask us, this particular tuned X6M from Inside Performance is…

If nothing else, having a pro put his name on the game would get it noticed on store shelves. Of course, if using a pro driver to sell racing games works well, shouldn’t it also work well for selling actual cars? That’s been the thinking behind…

    Vehicles Affected: Nearly 16,000 model-year 2014 Jeep Cherokee crossovers and Ram 1500s, and 2015 Chrysler 200 sedans The Problem: Due to an insufficient weld, the rear shocks may detach from the vehicle at one end and possibly damage other chassis components or the tire, or result in reduced braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash. The Fix: Chrysler will begin notifying owners this month, and dealers will inspect the rear shocks and replace any affected ones for free. What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's…

    Carbs Only Diet: A 190 Benz That BarksLove For The ’80s This is one badass Benz. A DTM-inspired sports saloon from the ’80s with enough speed and style to still kick tail in the modern day. You may remember that this Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Cosworth was selected for the Speedhunters #FeatureThis award at this year’s Players Classic show. What Steve Howson has done with this machine is nothing less than spectacular. Incredible detail and a dose of seriously cool tricks, and now we get to feature its ultimate incarnation.

    Ascend To The Green Heaven In St. UrsanneThe Ultimate Juxtaposition I’ve always had a ‘bucket list’ of sorts – cheesy, I know. Nevertheless, this list is populated entirely by automotive-related items, ranging from the easily achievable; pulling down an engine yourself, for example, to the seemingly more far fetched; driving a supercar really, really fast, and passengering in an sub-nine-second quarter mile. It’s a list filled with things I probably never thought I’d actually be able to achieve when I first thought of them, but life has a funny way of working out if you commit…

    Unplugged Tesla Model S: The Future Of Car Tuning?The Rise Of The Electric Car I love dinosaurs. I love the idea of dinosaurs. I love any ’90s cartoons involving dinosaurs. I love how they were once the pinnacle of living organisms during their reign on this earth. I love the classic boy band favorites: the triceratops, stegosaurus, and ankylosaurus. I love dinosaurs so much that I’ve based my life on burning as much black melted dinosaur flesh as I can on a daily basis. I’ve somehow even made a career out of it.

Japan tends to have that effect on people – especially, if like me, you’re a car guy. We all know about its crazy car scene, we’ve seen it all before in detail and in all its flavours. But no matter how many times and in how many ways I’m exposed to it – I just can’t get enough.

    To Infiniti & Beyond: Pikes Peak In A Q50Four Door Sports Car I’ve always been a Nissan Z-car enthusiast and have my 1970 240Z also known as Ole Orange Bang for almost ten years now. But when the 350z was unveiled, I have to say that I was a bit disappointed. Sure, it had giant Z badges front and rear, but it didn’t look anything like its predecessors. However, a short while afterwards the Infiniti G35 was unveiled. The design was groundbreaking, and unlike anything I have ever seen. I wanted one so badly.

    14 Aug 2014 | 6:53 am
    Nearly a month ago, Dodge announced the 707 horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Today, the Chrysler brand introduces a similarly equipped Charger and lays claim to the fastest four-door ever. It’s called the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat. Surprised? If you’re a Dodge fan, probably not. A sedan packing this much power sounds like a recipe for not only multiple run-ins with the law but wide-eyed children will be screaming, “Stop Daddy, you’re scaring me!” But after good ole Dad lays a few patches, those same kiddies will be reduced to giggling hysteria and squealing, “More,…

    There is no doubt about it, fans of motor sport are often spoiled for choice when it comes to selecting their preferred classification. From Formula One racing to rally driving, there are a fascinating range of disciplines that feature various vehicles without ever compromising on adrenalin pumping excitement. The sheer level of this diversity can cause some racing classifications to become easily overlooked, however, as they lack the exposure or financial backing or more popular alternatives. Take drifting, for example, which relies on a driving technique where a motorist intentionally…

    There’s a 30 percent chance that the used car you’re driving has never had a defect repaired. Automakers issue recalls on cars almost as often as they produce new models, so odds are good that your car has been recalled at some point. Thirty percent of recalled cars are never repaired, which isn’t a big deal if the recall is minor and involves something like a floor mat or trunk hinge. The missed repair could be devastating if the recall is for something more serious, like the recent GM ignition switch debacle. Used car shoppers, until now, had to conduct difficult research…

In the movie, a valet takes the classic Ferrari for an afternoon spin but has the car back in the garage before anyone notices it’s gone. The scene was a lesson in how to properly take a car that isn’t yours for the ride of your life. Doing so in real life is wildly irresponsible, dangerous and illegal. But it happens, probably more than we know. Leaving your car and keys with a valet, mechanic or anyone else who doesn’t own it is an open invitation to…

In fact, there should probably be men in suits and dark glasses verifying account balances before drivers are allowed to enter a gas station’s general proximity.

  • The Four Strangest Collaborations from the World of Motoring

    Chris Burdick
    6 Aug 2014 | 10:45 am
    Collaborations are a tricky subject - often they are brilliant, but a lot of the time they are rather questionable, and can leave a bit of a sour taste. Most industries have, at some point or another, participated in some form of collaboration; whether it be with another business in the same industry, or with a person or company that is completely unrelated. Rather unsurprisingly, this interest in collaboration for better or for worse, is as strong as ever within the motoring industry. In fact, it would almost be fair to say that car manufacturers are among some of the most prolific…

  • Saab 9-3 EV Prototype

    21 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    Discontinued in 2012 as Saab was filing for bankruptcy, the 9-3 sedan made a surprising return in 2013, when the brand was revived under National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS) ownership. But instead of launching the third-generation model that was in the works before Saab went bankrupt, NEVS started building second-gen cars at the company’s Trollhattan production plant. Identical to the 2012 model, the "new" sedan arrived in dealerships without the trademark griffin logos and with a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-banger under the hood.While NEVS is undoubtedly working on a modern…

    Aston Martin is probably the coolest car company in the world. Its stunning designs, growling V-12s and relationship with everyone’s favorite British spy, give it an image of undeniable desirability. However, despite its icy coolness, Aston has always been a flawed company. Being a relatively small company, it’s always dealt with financial issues and, because of this, has always suffered in the R&D department. Due to it’s lack of funds, Aston has never been able to keep up with it’s rivals, particularly Porsche, when it comes to technology and innovation. For…

    I'm looking at purchasing a 2011 GCO with 73K miles. The listing price is $26,998. After looking at KBB this seems to be reasonable and appears to be listed below blue book. I won't be able to test drive until this weekend so if it's still available is there anything I should be looking for or asking about? I guess my biggest concern is the high mileage after only 3 years. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Attached Files BuildSheetServlet vin removed.pdf (12.4 KB)

  • Question about screen dimensions (8.4AN)

    GCOverland
    21 Aug 2014 | 11:21 am
    Hi, I'm currently looking for screen-protectors for the 8.4AN and located a product. I entered the vehicle info and they list a protector with a size of 165 x 120 mm. However, these dimension match a 8" diameter and not 8.4". So my question is: Is this the right size (about 6.5" x 4.75") or is the 8.4AN-screen indeed 8.4" and not just 8" as suggested by this particular company? It could also be that there are only 8" visible and that that's the reason for this smaller protector but since I obviously don't have my car (yet), I simply don't have a clue. Would…

    For over a year Jeep has told me that a particular feature doesn't exist. Yet, when I checked "Version 8" of the owner's manual; "• Sand – Off road calibration for use on low traction surfaces such as sand or wet grass. Driveline is maximized for traction. Some binding may be felt on less forgiving surfaces. The electronic brake controls are set to limit traction control management of throttle and wheel spin. If equipped with air suspension, the levelwill change to Off-Road 1." Around version 5 I suggested they let the folks who write the owners manual know about it.

You can say the recent horsepower wars has some type of physiological effect on enthusiasts, especially when it comes to the recent 707-horsepower Dodge Hellcats in the form of the Challenger and Charger. Be that the Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat have more power than the current Viper, the rumors have started turning that an upcoming Viper will get around 800…

I typically buy used so that I can try out a bunch of different brands and also to save some money; however, I deviated from usual strategy and bought a set of brand new Falken FK453s in 2012 after getting a nice discount on them and hearing a pretty convincing pitch from my tire shop. The FK453s were sold as “fixing every problem of the FK452s and then some” and I was told I’d be quite pleased with these tires – boy, were they wrong…after 1.5 years and around 15,000 miles,…

    Hi, my name is Andrew and I have a problem, I am seemingly incapable of sticking to a list of 10 cars for my Real World Dream Shed for longer than a few minutes. I threatened to compile my own Real World Dream Shed last year, preparing a list almost immediately. Then it changed. Then it changed again. Then I gave up and went to the shops. I then forgot about it for a few months. Having taken the notebook out of the top drawer, I fiddled with the list again. Some cars went, other cars came in. But it was forever in a state of flux. This was much, much harder than I thought. But, at this…
  • Driving Honda: a book review

    We had such high hopes for Honda at the turn of the millennium. Pick up a copy of Autocar, poignantly dated 1 January 2000, and check out the new car price guide. It reads like a Honda-sponsored dream garage. Honda Civic VTi, Jordan VTi, Accord Type-R, Legend, Integra Type-R, Prelude, S2000 and NSX. It’s little wonder Honda is PetrolBlog’s favourite Japanese carmaker. Let’s not forget the MK1 Honda Insight was a mere three months away and it wouldn’t be long before the Civic Type-R would arrive in a scream of VTEC. Good times. Turn to the Honda website today and…
  • Rare Italian fails to meet pre-auction estimate at Pebble Mill

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    15 Aug 2014 | 9:32 pm
    There was shock and dismay at this week’s prestigious Pebble Mill Concorde d’Extraordinary auction as a rare two-seat Italian failed to live up to its pre-auction hype. In the days leading up to the auction, which is part of Birmingham’s Monterey Car Jackers Week, many analysts were suggesting the Fiat Punto Van – finished in exclusive Darlington Drizzle grey – could sell for between £3,500 and £4,500. But there were groans of disappointment from the expectant Pebble Mill crowd as the Punto fetched just £2,300. It’s still a world record price for a Fiat Punto Van*, but…
  • Going green: MK1 Honda Insight review

    It all started, as many things do these days, with a Tweet. This one in fact. I’ve been known to express desire for used cars posted on Twitter before, but ordinarily common sense gets the better of me, or laziness sets in and I decide that travelling hundreds of miles down the country is too much work even for a particularly lovely Renault 11. Unfortunately, the MK1 Honda Insight posted by this very website wasn’t hundreds of miles away. It was about thirteen miles away, which is far from an unlucky number when it refers to the minuscule distance between yourself and a car you…

    Go on, admit it – you’d completely forgotten about the Fiat Argenta, hadn’t you? Maybe you weren’t even aware of its existence. Which is hardly surprising, given that – according to How Many Left? – the last Fiat Argenta disappeared off the streets of Britain in 2010. A victim of Scrappage? Who knows, but if so, the big Fiat would have suffered the indignity of being sacrificed in the name of something like the Hyundai i10. What a crushing blow. Literally. First introduced in Italy in 1981, the Fiat Argenta was a replacement for the ageing Fiat 132 (shown…

    Suzuki has been facing trouble with Kizashi’s sales figures since long time and now the company seems highly doubtful if there’s a future left to this mid-size sedan. Suzuki had high hopes with the Kizashi when it was unveiled back in 2009, especially from the US and Canada markets where a car-maker has got to offer pick-up trucks and mid-size sedans in order to record good sales figure. Well, be it the unfortunate time at which it was introduced (economic crisis back in ’09) or that the sedan isn’t just as good enough as the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord & other…

    John Mendel, executive vice president of sales at American Honda, has warned that auto sales in the United States are nearing the highest point that the market could sustainably support. He also warned that US auto sales could suffer long-term damage if carmakers increasingly rely on subprime financing and seven-year loans to increase their market shares. American Honda has seen its US market share drop to 9.1 percent in the first seven months of 2014 from 9.7 percent in the same period in 2013.

  • 2015 Hyundai Genesis: More car, less snob appeal

    Dan Jedlicka
    18 Aug 2014 | 3:19 pm
    Would you prefer a well-known luxury car or saving thousands for a worthy but less-prestigious rival? The new, redesigned 2015 Hyundai Genesis is a fast, luxurious sedan designed to compete with foreign rivals (mainly German) that cost thousands more. This Genesis has slicker, more imposing styling. It’s highlighted by a new, very aggressive-looking hexagonal grille and dynamic rear design. The wheelbase is longer at 118.5 inches and there are shorter body overhangs than its predecessor. This big, imposing four-door is equipped with plenty of luxury and convenience equipment. It’s…

    18 Aug 2014 | 1:52 pm
    Retractable hardtop convertibles are the answer for car owners who like driving convertibles but who live in areas where ragtops can wear quickly or prove otherwise troublesome (like leaking or freezing) in inclement weather. The 2014 Lexus IS 350C hardtop convertible joined the increasing supply of retractable hardtops in 2010. The current 2014 edition is my vehicle for the weeklong USA Pro Challenge, a pro bike race from Aspen to Denver, Colorado. The mountain drive from Snowmass Resort to Aspen is only about 7.5 miles, but it was warm and sunny Monday morning, so after a nearly a five-hour…

    I haven’t been to Norwalk in 2+ years. Not really into drag racing, I don’t really miss the racing. I miss my friends. They’re the real reason I spend over $1,000 on hotel, airfare, and drunken debauchery in a sleepy, Ohio bedroom community. Since 2003 or 2004, I’ve only missed the Shootout three times. The first was because I was stuck working at Enterprise Wreck-a-Life, and I’ll never forget the hot summer day I spent washing stripped down, GM fleet turds behind a derelict, Mesa shanty in a shirt and tie before being forced to attend an…

    Central Contracts was lucky enough to get the chance to see the new BMW i8 up close and personal today, when one paid us a visit at Central Contracts HQ.

Its electric motor and combustion engine are both completely synchronised, which allows it to be as efficient as possible on the road. Alongside this, it features a stunning aerodynamic design and an excellent eDrive concept. It also has a BMW TwinPower Turbo 1.5-litre,…

    Sometimes when we see a film featuring particularly great-looking or iconic cars, we feel compelled to get up and go for a drive. Of course, most of us never get the chance to own classic cars like the Ford Mustang or the Jaguar E Type, but there’s nothing stopping us looking at them on film and thereby being inspired to go and mimic our favourite actors and try to look as cool as they do. Cinema has played a great part in increasing (and securing) the popularity of certain cars, and in this blog post we’ll take a look at some of them. Some of the cars we’ll discuss were already…

    Commutes are getting longer — well over an hour in many U.S. metro areas — and more people are getting on board with ride sharing and carpooling. That’s great for the economy and your pocket book, but not so great if you don’t have the right commuter car.

Even though workplaces are turning virtual, that doesn’t mean people are driving any less. For Americans who are en route to the office, having the right vehicle to get you there is just as important as other…

  • Work related road risk should ‘become a priority’

    Editor
    1 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Employers and the government should be doing more to ensure that work-related road safety prioritised alongside traditional health and safety, a new report has argued. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) spoke to both the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) and the Centre for Transport Studies at University College London (UCL) to evaluate the current management of occupational road risk in the UK. The report assesses the progress made in recent years by employers looking to manage the risks that their staff face whilst driving for work. It makes various recommendations,…

    A new RAC study showed that more than one-in-ten drivers also don’t realise that texting whilst driving is illegal. 61% drivers don't realise that the law still applies when the car is stationary with the engine switched on.  It is also an offence to use a phone whilst stopped at traffic lights, during a traffic jam or whilst parked, as long as the engine is running. 47 per cent of motorists believe that checking their phone during this time is legal, with 26 per cent of drivers considering it ‘safe’. David Bizley, the tech director at RAC, said: “While the law is…

    Last month we reported that fuel costs remained a major concern for British motorists.  According to a new study by the Post Office, concerns could well be justified. The study has shown that British drivers are currently paying up to 43p more per litre than other drivers in the continent.  Even drivers in neighbouring France are paying 29p per litre less than UK motorists. The information – which has come from the Post Office Travel Money annual report into motoring – said that even after exchange rate discrepancies were taken into account, diesel in the continent was…
  • UK Car sales grow for record 27th consecutive month

    UK car sales have risen for the 27th month in a row, breaking a record that dated back to the 1980s.  The availability of easy credit combined with heavy discounting and rising consumer confidence (not to mention fairly solid economic growth) has swelled the demand for new cars within the UK.  Sales in the country are now out-pacing pre-recession levels. British car buyers have been considered the darlings of the European car industry within the last couple of years, with the rest of the continent still struggling with lower sales. New car sales in the UK rose 7.7 per cent in May,…

    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?

    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.

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…

That’s great for the economy and your pocket book, but not so great if you don’t have the right commuter car. Consider that in 1960, there were almost 74 million cars on the road, but today there are more than 253 million. Even though workplaces are turning virtual, that doesn’t mean people are driving any less. For Americans who are en route to the office, having the right vehicle to get you there is just as important as other…

    Car engines produce a lot of waste heat. It’s one of the basic laws of thermodynamics that energy will change from one form to another, and as not all the chemical potential energy in the petrol or diesel that you put into your tank gets turned into kinetic (motion) energy. Some becomes sound energy and some becomes heat energy. In the normal course of things, a lot of this heat energy gets wasted. But it doesn’t have to be this way.  You can do something useful with that heat.  The most common thing that people do with this head is using it to heat the inside of the car. But you can…

Usually, there’ll be offerings in white, at least one grey and a red of some sort. If you’re lucky, there’ll be a few other shades: blue, green, yellow or even orange.

    According to the Highway Code if you are driving on a motorway and your vehicle develops a problem you should drive off the motorway as soon as you are able to either at the next exit or at a service station. If you are unable to leave the motorway and your car breaks down you should pull over to the hard shoulder and come to a halt as far to the left as you can. You should make sure that your wheels are turned to the left so that, should your vehicle be shunted from behind, it would tend to steer further away from the motorway rather than onto it.

    All brands of gasoline are not the same. The gas at one station is different from the gas at the station down the street. It is similar to how different brands of apple juice don’t taste the same and have varying amounts of vitamins depending on the types of apples used in the juice. Brands of gas have different additives that increase performance, clean while they burn, and reduce emissions. In 1995, the EPA put a minimum limit on additives for gas sold in the United States. Since then, each brand of gas must contain a certain amount of additives that reduce emissions and reduce the…

    21 Aug 2014 | 11:30 am
    If you happen to be driving one of Google’s autonomous cars and get pulled over for speeding, you can blame the car. It seems that Google has programmed them to go up to 10 mph over the speed limit to let them stay at the same pace as surrounding traffic. The news comes from a Reuters report quoting a Google representative speaking with journalists on a test drive. He said the speed limit can be exceeded in the right conditions, although he didn’t give any details on what conditions. It’s likely if you’re on the highway where, let’s face it, no one does the speed limit, then…

    Besides being prettier, the new Lamborghini Huracan is more potent than the Gallardo it replaces. It goes up to 610 horsepower from the Gallardos 570. But there was one thing that the outgoing Gallardo did have that the Huracan doesn’t — rear wheel drive. But thanks to a few not-so-subtle hints from Lamborghini, that might be changing. PHOTOS: See More of the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan According to Autocar, the now all-wheel drive only Huracan could be seeing a rear-wheel drive variant as early as next year. And that would likely sit alongside an open-top spyder variant as well. Speaking…

    If your taste in James Bond is from the Sean Connery era, you might want to hoof it to the Freddie March Spirit of Aviation exhibition at the Goodwood Revival on September 12th. The Bond helicopter flown by Pussy Galore is going to be front and center. The whirlybird featured prominently in the finale of Goldfinger. Galore, played by actress Honor Blackman, (what a great combination of real and character names) flew Goldfinger’s atomic bomb to Fort Knox as part of a masterful crime she helped spoil.

    A Catalytic Converter commonly referred to as a “Cat” and works by causing unburned fuel to be chemically altered, helping to reduce the overall harmful emissions released.

The rotor or disc (as it is also called) is mounted on the wheel hub and rotates along with the wheel.

It is the friction between the rotor and the pads that slows down the wheel or in other words the kinetic energy of the moving rotor is converted to heat energy. Rotors have a variety of surface designs that mainly depend upon…

So, they would ask their applicants who else in their home can drive and include the details of those people in their premium calculations. Including them would make sure that the company charges the right premium. Also, inclusions would reduce any arguments about who was insured or not. There have been cases in the past where the scope of the policy has been questioned by relatives on policyholders. It still may be possible to exclude a certain driver…

Pricing is different from month to month and you can’t be successful in August the same way you were successful in May. 3.  It’s a mistake to price your used cars like you did earlier this year because with new vehicle…

  • 2015 Škoda Fabia first view

    20 Aug 2014 | 11:17 am
    Following some earlier teaser shots, Škoda has released the first proper images of its all-new Fabia. The styling bears many of the traits already seen on other recently-launched Škoda models such as the Rapid and Octavia. A broader stance and taut surface detailing, which have also been influenced by the VisionC concept, certainly give the design a smart and sophisticated look. In Europe the engine line-up is going to comprise four petrol and three diesel options matched with either manual or dual-clutch DSG transmissions. Thanks partly to the standard fitment of stop-start and brake…

    21 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    Bigger, wider, and longer. Lamborghini’s design language has evolved throughout the years to become sharp, jagged, and aggressive while keeping the classic wedge-shaped Italian sports car profile. That evolution of design is often hard to replicate and enhance without taking away from the OEM look. Vorsteiner, however, was able to improve the overall look and aerodynamics with their all-new Zaragoza front spoiler in the Aventador-V program. The new Vorsteiner Zaragoza front spoiler was a difficult task for its designers to undertake. The team had to create an aggressive front spoiler that…

    This isn’t the Toyota we’ve known for the past few years. For almost 15 years, Toyota has had trouble when it comes to adding some sport, enthusiasm, and fun in their lineup. Instead of the Supra, Celica, and MR2 that made the company exciting, they became known for their robust, appliance-like reliability and driving quality. The past few years, however, the Japanese automaker has been trying to inject some testosterone into its lineup with cars like the FR-S, LFA, IS-F, and others.

    The Pontiac brand was introduced by General Motors in 1926 as the companion marque to GM’s Oakland division. Within months of its introduction, Pontiac was outselling Oakland. As a result of Pontiac’s rising sales, versus Oakland’s declining sales, Pontiac became the only companion marque to survive its parent, with Oakland ceasing production in 1932.

    A Catalytic Converter commonly referred to as a “Cat” and works by causing unburned fuel to be chemically altered, helping to reduce the overall harmful emissions released. This is done through the use of a catalyst, normally a precious metal. The most common material used today is Platinum. Other metals and combinations of metals can also be used as a catalyst, such as Nickel, Copper, Iron or Manganese.

The rotor or disc (as it is also called) is mounted on the wheel hub and rotates along with the wheel. When the driver depresses the brake pedal, the brake pads housed within the brake calipers squeeze the rotor to slow down the speed of the vehicle. It is the friction between the rotor and the pads that slows down the wheel or in other words the kinetic energy of the moving rotor is converted to heat energy. Rotors have a variety of surface designs that mainly depend upon…

    17 Aug 2014 | 11:04 am
    The best way to sell something is to create a need or demand for it Borrowed from the Film  “The Wolf of Wall Street” :-Wolf  “Sell me that pen” Salesman  “Do me a favour write your name down on that napkin for me”Wolf  “I don’t have a pen”Salesman  “Exactly!

Out of nowhere a guy appeared and grabbed my arm “Do you like Black Girls” he said, fearing that this was some sort of Racist questionnaire that you had to pass before they allowed you onto the beach, I said of course I do, why doesn’t everyone?

(Reference Geoff Hurst, Hat Trick scorer in England's 1966 World Cup Final) Geoff Hurst = Hearse = Funeral Car. This was the first conversation I was having with the General Manager in my new role as Sales Manager.

  • Customer Expectation, Amateur Photographer and The VAT Man

    6 Apr 2014 | 2:45 am
    How do you manage customer expectation? I think the answer is you have to do the best “You” can, sometimes it’s not enough. 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…

    Because we love the smell of two stroke and dust clouds. It’s the backwards lean that is so impressive. Favourite bike of the meet, a CX500 dirtbruiser. Couldn’t corner, but roostertailed like a mofo coming out of corners. Almost rubbin racin, which is even cooler because it’s on dirtbikes. Most of these bikes I would be scared to take on the road, let alone on dirt. Old school dirt trackers. Nothing like a bare metal tank to show how you’re more about go than show.

    It is an unfortunate aspect of history that certain siblings are relegated to the shadows of their much brighter offspring, no matter how brightly they shine. The Brough Superior automobile is one such example of this, having no chance against the solar beacon that was the Brough Superior motorcycles it shared it’s nameplate with. Nonetheless, with relativity put aside, it’s time to take a closer look at the lesser known member of the Brough Superior vehicle range. Over a short period between 1935 and 1938, the Brough Superior Motorworks produced approximately 85 motorcars. Rolling…

    Antique cars had some pretty simple jacks that aren't hard to figure out how they work. The problem is that the jack is usually a WRECK on anything older and especially an antique. I've found over the years that if the part or accessory (in this case an old jack) is still solid structurally, it can often times be saved and reconditioned or restored and put back into service.

  • How Do I Adjust the Flow Rate of Shielding Gas?

    1 Aug 2014 | 1:31 pm
    Whenever you are using a welding machine, like a MIG welder or a TIG welder, it is crucial that you know how to adjust the flow rate of shielding gas. When assembling and setting up your welder, once you connect your shielding gas regulator, the gas flow rate must be adjusted in order to assure that the right amount of shielding gas is flowing over your weld. If too little gas is flowing from your welder, excessive spatter and contamination can occur. If too much gas is flowing, you will be wasting your gas, which can negatively affect the result of your weld. Typically, there are two gauges…

    For many years, we’ve heard rumors that it’s smartest to wait until the end of the year to purchase a vehicle. This makes sense, as dealerships are full of next year’s models by this point. However, new data from TrueCar suggests that the better deals may actually come in August when dealerships are relatively quiet. The TrueCar report showed that the average transaction price in August was $1,850 lower than the average in December. Actually, the July rates fall just behind August. This is likely because the shift in model year used to come in early fall months like…

  • Is Your Car Rolling Through Turns? Check Your Sway Bar Links!

    Oscaro Staff
    20 Aug 2014 | 1:26 pm
    Is your car swaying through turns? Is it making clunking or rattling noises when you hit pothole or make a sharp turn? If so, your sway bar link could be bad. Your sway bar is what keeps your vehicle level and prevents “rolling” or swaying in turns. As one side of the car compresses into the turn, the sway bar lifts the compressed spring up while simultaneously forcing the opposite side down, leveling out the ride. The stabilizer bar links act as the arms that attach the axle or control arm to the sway bar. Fixers know that a damaged link essentially makes the entire sway bar…

    It seems that quite a few owners of automotive parts companies end up in racing after they’ve made their fortune; but the founder of Meyle, Wulf Gaertner is one of the few automotive parts manufacturer founders that started in racing. Starting in 1958, Wulf took this experience and passion for automobiles as an amateur race car driver and turned it into a lifelong career with the founding a company that exported German vehicle parts to the growing Latin American market. Wulf was a likeable guy, and thanks to the excellent relationships he held with the German OE-quality automotive supply…
  • Genuine OEM Common Sense

    Oscaro Staff

    The concept that only your dealer can work on your car has gone far enough. Sure we understand that certain Genuine OE parts are better than the aftermarket counterparts. The Genuine OE wheel bearing lock nut washer for my 1986 Toyota Pickup is far better than the aftermarket solution. But on the other hand, is my truck really worse off because I chose to use Wagner Thermoquiet brake pads rather than Genuine OE Toyota brake pads? No. It works just fine. Its unfortunate that many drivers cannot differentiate between what Genuine OE parts are necessary, and which ones bring absolutely no…

  • What Story Are Your Car’s Tyres Telling You?

    11 Aug 2014 | 5:26 am
    Every single road-going car on the planet uses tyres. These inanimate objects give our cars traction on the road, and mean the difference between life and death. Vulcanised rubber is the main component used to make tyres. In the late 19th century, Charles Goodyear invented vulcanised rubber. Thanks to him, we don’t have to drive on wheels with bands of metal wrapped around them anymore! Tyre technology has come a long way since those days, and we can enjoy the benefits of tyres that are durable and long-lasting.

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.

    So, you’re buying a used car. There’s nothing to be ashamed of; the majority of people choose to buy used cars in this day and age, as new cars are just too expensive. Plus, they depreciate in value the second that you buy them, making them a bit of a silly investment.

However, when you own a 4×4 designed for the rough off-road terrain then great tyres can save your life. All tyres are important, regardless of what you drive.

    As we talked about back in January, Volkswagen has been working on a Beetle “Dune” concept. However, it seems that the Dune has progressed from a mere concept to a likely production vehicle. Here’s what VW fans can expect. The Beginning of the Off-Road Bug Once upon a time, an awesome little machine known as the “Baja Bug” made the world of off-roading a lot more interesting. While the terms “off-road racing” and “VW Beetle” wouldn’t seem like they belong together, the Beetle was a popular race platform due to its low cost, ease of…

    544 horsepower, 0-60 mph in 2.1 seconds, and no flower vase in sight. The VW Beetle GRC is one bad bug. If you think “Love Bug” when you think Beetle, this monster will help you throw that idea out the window. The GRC is to the Love Bug as a blood-sucking vampire is to a mosquito. There is no comparison. Powered by a tiny 1.6-liter engine that makes an incredible 544 horsepower, the GSR is Volkswagen’s official Red Bull Global Rallycross (GRC) series vehicle. While the horsepower output from the meager 1.6L engine is phenomenal (it’s producing 340hp per liter of…

Yes, I'm a Canadian who couldn't pick last year's NHL scoring leader out of a police lineup. I couldn't even tell you the name of three current NHL players, but I can tell you how many times Richard Petty won the Daytona 500 (7) and how many wins The King (Petty) had in 1967 ( 27 out of 48 with a record 10 in a row).

    After months of watching youtube videos of the red demon I decided that it was time to see this thing in person and take a look around within the shop that created such a beast.

What's up with that? For the Evo guys. This red nightmare rolled up to the dyno and laid down some good power. Clocking in at 607 awhp I think it was easily a contender in winning the high…

    Exercising On The Road Human bodies developed organically to perform certain tasks that help them survive. Our close-together eyes allow us to better judge distance when hunting.
