Aston Martins have been tasked to assist the Agent 007 to escape the clutches of some hand very angry men in hot pursuit. Watching the Astons Bond on the big screen reader powered reveries of many fans of the spy, who consider themselves an exotic cruise landscape until the truth comes to the call in the form of price tag of the car. Here is where the 2014 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT comes into play.

In the 1980s, the choice of Bond was the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT. Current version of the V8 Vantage GT starts at $ 99,000, which makes it one of the more affordable cars of the Bond compared the likes of the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, DBS and, of course, the DB5. We recently spent a few days at the wheel of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT 2014 pretending to dodge the calls of Miss Moneypenny and M for the cruise down Pacific Coast Highway. As is found, this V8 Vantage GT would set Mr. Bond and MI6 back $ 108 970 - a small price to pay for the more active worldwide intelligence officer. This figure also includes a GT Graphics Pack ($ 3,190), 10-spoke forged alloy ($ 3,190) graphite wheels and a Pack ($ 2,690) technology.

We believe that Mr Bond would opt to avoid this option but for those looking for attention, this will work very well. Once while the V8 Vantage GT's outdoor parking lot of a restaurant, a passer-by has slowed his pace but locked on the front car failing to walk in a parked truck. The Tech Package is worth the price of admission too because it allows Bluetooth enabled and a retractable navigation screen.

Volvo Dice Vida Then, there is the 4.7-litre V8 engine, which is mated to a 6 speed manual transmission, and screaming exhaust note who wakes up as climb the number of rounds. This will make it difficult for any spy escape from the mountain Lair enemy without being detected, but chances are they will not catch you that this transmission is estimated at 430 horsepower and 361 lb - ft of torque. There are other alternatives if all you want to do is go fast (Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche 911, Jaguar F-Type, etc.), but the price of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT is a bargain if you want to be able to request membership in an exclusive club.

2014 Chevrolet SS: stopgap or jumping Point?

2014 Chevrolet SS: stopgap or jumping Point?

ds708 scanner Good cars still survive the early days, such as the Pontiac G8. Based on the Holden Commodore assembled in Australia, the G8 has disappeared with Pontiac as a result of the reorganization of General Motors 2009. Five years later and his acclaimed spiritual successor, the Chevrolet SS, could potentially face the same fate.

Last year, GM publicly announced the closure of its Australian production in 2017, bringing with it important changes to vehicles offered by Mark Holden. The brand continues to operate in Australia, but the rear-drive Holden Commodore sedans and utes range effectively cease to exist. Because Holden manufactures the Chevrolet SS and Commodore platform Zeta General Motors in Elizabeth, South Australia, the new paints a troubling picture for the perseverance of performance Chevy Sedan.

Volume limited SS

So far, sales have been positive instead of being artificially low, reflects targets for the import of General Motors of 3,000 to 5,000 units per year. From April 2014, Chevrolet sold 1,148 SS models on the year, which is consistent with objective the automaker.

"ADS1SPrice Overall, we are very happy," commented Todd Christensen, Chevrolet, car Performance Marketing Manager. "Consumer comments indicate so far that they like the car. The overall media response has been really positive, and sales are on track with our expectations."

Compared to its stablemates, the SS is 2014 lower sales of Chevrolet model and comes right in front of the same Cadillac ELR niche in terms of turnover. But that sales figures do not take into account the ambitions of make of vehicle.

Bring the sedan rear-wheel drive

Autel MaxiDAS DS708 When Chevy introduced SS in late 2013, it marked the first sedan Chevrolet V8 traction rear in 17 years, since the fourth-generation Caprice and Impala of the seventh generation have been cleaned. Pending successful first year for sale, it is a remarkable change - or at least a test bench - in the interest of consumers to the Chevrolet performance sedans, a claim even easier when you look at similar moves in the rest of the programming of The General.

Class of 2015 - new vehicles Ready to Roll

Class of 2015 - new vehicles Ready to Roll

Volvo dice vida 2011A This unconscious reaction speaks volumes about the underlying excellence of the M4 and, by extension, the M3 4-door. When you hear fans talk "communicative steering" or suspension that 'speaks to you,' this is what they mean and the BMW M3 and M4 - M4 2015 replaces the M3 coupe - have it in spades. These are more than just 3 and 4 BMW series with larger engines; they are edited with an eye on maximum performance. For example, changes as the birthplace of rear suspension that is bolted directly to the chassis, with no sockets absorbing the vibrations between the two. The ride is stiffer, but this direct connection probably played a role to help me keep the car on the track.

The Tech

The BMW M3 and M4 2015 are based on the current series generation 3 and 4, with improved suspension, all new engine, better steering and a host other changes to transform the sedan luxury and cut in a Corvette fighter several passenger; seriously, BMW believes that the M3 can accelerate to 100 km/h in less than 4 seconds, about the same as a Corvette.

ADS-1S At the heart of the new M3 and M4 is a new 3.0-litre engine-turbocharged inline-six cylinder engine with 425 horsepower and 406 lb - ft of torque. Respectively, which is an improvement of 2 percent and a huge 38 percent of the V8 it replaces. It is connected with manual transmission 6-speed or automatic transmission with double clutch 7 most popular speeds. The M3 and M4 are exclusively of rear-wheel drive, this year, helped by a new electronically controlled limited slip differential. You can choose between brakes 4-piston standard with cast-iron rotors, or a new runway ready to $ 8,150 6 piston caliper carbon-ceramic braking system which increases the resistance of brake fade. The butterfly, suspension, stability and transport control can each be individually set up for your personal tastes - these quarters without complacency on the track have been easily tamed by choosing a less aggressive setting - with two programmable presets on the steering wheel to your preferred settings. Although it is larger than the car of last year, the new M3 and M4 lose about 180 pounds thanks to carbon fiber, drive shaft, roof trunk lid and more.

Street

Lexia 3 v47 Rain prevented the kind of le-the-limit handling that BMW hoped no doubt, but it turned to the less valuable to test stability at speed of three digits, and how well the new brakes carbon-ceramic he pulled something sane again in a blink of eye. In addition, the whine of the new engine full throttle from anywhere other than the way would probably afraid enough cows to ruin the value of one year's Wisconsin cheese, and there was no way I wanted to be responsible for this.

2014 Dodge Challenger SRT Quick Take

2014 Dodge Challenger SRT Quick Take

lexia 3 pp2000 As an amateur, I should be cynical about the 2014 Dodge Challenger SRT. Of course, it has a 470 power 6.4-liter Hemi V8. But despite this, it is handily outrun by a Mustang GT, which has much less energy and tag much lower price. It is also longer, wider and taller than the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, and it weighs more than 4,000 pounds. The interior is as bland as a rice cake, and there are too many bits in it chintzy Dodge bad days, too. Oh, it also costs about $ 50,000, the same as the BMW 3 Series well-equipped.

Gm tech2 scan tool Even if you remove all amateur party polarization, the Challenger has problems. Rear visibility is still poor in low-cuts like this, but wow, you can not see a darn thing out the back window of the car. This is the width, length, and narrow windows make it difficult to park, or even change lanes, and there is no rear camera or angle sensors death to help extend your own perception. The navigation system is straight out of 2005, the Bluetooth is flawed, the USB connection is ridiculously slow, and it is terrible on gas.

And I can easily forget about it.

Autel MaxiDAS DS708 This is one of the most engaging, entertaining cars, and downright sexy that you can buy. So what if it's heavy? This thing moves, blasting to 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds, and it will make an honest 170 mph and if given enough space. It also seems absolutely amazing all the time; this big V8 may just be the best sounding V8 is domestic. The transmission is a 6-speed manual with a fantastic web offset shifter pistol grip - the 5-speed automatic is horrible - and the clutch is smooth and easy to use, especially as it faces £ 470 - ft of torque. Opt for the manual and you also get a limited slip differential, which helps to make sure your land and produce beautiful fences, parallel black stripes. Press the "Sport" on the dashboard, and shocks significantly strengthen key tame the heavy body and make this car trapped in a back-road manager surprisingly agile. SRT specific seats are firm and supportive, but comfortable enough for hundreds of miles an hour.

Ford planned on stopping the Ranger in 2008, but reconsidered after the compact trucks have made a comeback due to rising fuel costs.

While the Ranger has not been seen for over a decade, sales continue to remain strong. For the first quarter of 2011, sales of the Ranger were higher compared to last year. Its main competitors are the Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier and Chevrolet Colorado, which have undergone many upgrades, redesigns and increased dimensions. Ranger potential customers are likely attracted by its simplicity, small size and low price.

Unlike its competitors, however, the rear doors of the Ranger found in cab models are not normal size. Instead, they are smaller suicide style doors that allow easier access to the rear area, which contains two small jumpseats facing each other - not exactly made for long distance travel.

The Ranger comes with a choice of three trim levels. The XL is the most basic of the bunch and comes only with the four-cylinder engine; body Supercab 4 door finish is available in XL. Vinyl flooring and seating are standard in the XL. The XLT is available in all cab configurations and the engine and comes standard with cloth seats, body colored bumpers, fog lamps, a CD player and auxiliary jack. The high-end Sport model adds sport bucket seats, running boards and color-keyed grille of the sport. All models come standard with the cargo box of 6 feet, if a 7-foot box option is available as an option from the fleet on XL Regular Cab models.

Other options include rear privacy glass with sliding door, a bed liner and side moldings.

When it comes to safety, the Ranger protects passengers in the front and side airbags mounted in the seats and the Ford AdvanceTrac with roll stability control (RSC). AdvanceTrac with RSC (commonly known as Electronic Stability Control) is a technology that prevents spills through measures such as clipping accelerator and brake. Ranger also comes standard with antilock four-wheel brakes monitoring system tire pressure and SecuriLock anti-theft system.

Volvo Dice Vida Although the level of sophistication and refinement of the Ranger can not match its competition, its sales rose indicate that there is a demand for a true compact truck unadorned. There is still no official word on the future of Ford Ranger United States but also more car buyers look to downsize because of the volatility of gas prices, it will be interesting to see what Ford decides to do with its compact truck aging.

Diesel save fuel, but do they save money?

Diesel save fuel, but do they save money?

ADS1SPrice the diesel cars have a reputation for being loud, smelly and slow, but they also get very good fuel economy on the highway. However, just because the diesel fuel economy does not mean they always save their owners money. According to the Diesel Technology Forum, a non-profit that educates diesel engines, diesel car registrations increased by 24.3 percent between 2010 and 2012, although the overall car registrations increased by only 2.75 percent during this period.

USA Today wrote: "Every time we conducted a recent new diesel car, we were amazed at how they became indistinguishable from conventional gas cars. No noise. No smoke. No engine noise rattling. "

Doug Skorupski, Alternative Fuels Volkswagen director of technical strategies, said in an interview that "diesel engines are inherently more fuel efficient than gasoline engines." This is because there are 14 percent more energy per unit of diesel fuel in the same unit. Volkswagen is a leading manufacturer of diesel cars in the U.S. market. Twenty-one percent of Volkswagen models for sale in the United States are diesel.

According Skorupski, diesel is "one of the few technologies where customer expectations are met or exceeded." He cites the fuel economy of diesel engines as one of the main reasons diesel owners are positive about their cars . In many cases, Skorupski said, diesel owners are able to far exceed the estimated fuel consumption of EPA. This is because the fuel consumption tests are performed at 55 miles per hour . In a gasoline engine, the speed increases, fuel consumption decreases. However, because diesel engines have a higher compression ratio, they do not experience the same drop-off of efficient than gasoline engines. Skorupski also said that because diesel engines consume less fuel, they have less carbon emissions.

Volvo Dice Vida Volkswagen has good reason to tout the benefits of diesel engines. The automaker says that 72 percent of all sales of diesel passenger cars in the United States in 2012 were Volkswagen. When sales of diesel sister brands Audi and Volkswagen Porsche are added, the company accounted for 80 percent of diesel sales in the U.S. in 2012, Skorupski said. "We are on the market, no doubt about it," he said.

Diesel vehicles generally cost more than their gasoline counterparts, and the rising cost of diesel fuel may seem like a diesel car will cost more in the long term. Volkswagen says that 85 percent of sales of the Jetta Sportwagen are diesel model. Based on highway mileage alone should 16.091 miles of driving to balance on $ 1,400 price premium diesel Jetta SportWagen. Twenty percent of sales are diesel Jetta models; diesel Jetta has a premium price $ 4,040 on a Jetta to comparable gasoline engine equipped. This means that on the basis of highway driving alone should 46.436 miles of driving to balance the different price. This is better than the payback period on the hybrid Jetta, however, would take 96,200 miles of city driving or 110.763 miles of highway driving to compensate for its $ 7,975 price difference with the gas Jetta only.

Renault CAN Clip If you do a lot of highway driving a diesel car can possibly save on fuel, but that does not mean a diesel will be cheaper to purchase long term. A 2012 analysis Vincentric, a company that provides data of the cost of property, looked at 23 diesel models and found that only nine had total cost of ownership lower than those of related models essence. According to Vincentric, diesel models cost more to own because "diesel vehicle has a price higher than its alternative gas market, which leads to several factors including costs to increase depreciation, finance costs and Opportunities fees and taxes. The 2012 study also shows that diesels generally have slightly higher insurance, repair and maintenance costs. "Buying a diesel car, truck or SUV can be a great way to save fuel especially if you do not have your car on the highway. As you shop, however, make sure you take into account the additional costs of owning a diesel to get a complete picture of how the diesel vehicle suited to your budget.

Eight states to begin major push EV

Eight states to begin major push EV

renault canclipscanner It may soon be much easier and cheaper to buy and own an electric vehicle. Eight governors have signed a cooperation agreement Thursday to boost sales of zero-emission vehicles ( ZEV ), including electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids and fuel cell vehicles to hydrogen fuel . Their plan , which will be developed over the next six months, should significantly increase the number of charging stations and provide new financial incentives for car buyers. The objective of Governors is to start increasing sales today and will eventually have 3.3 million ZEV on the road by 2025.

A number of initiatives are included in the Agreement:

    Financial incentives : Provide financial incentives for consumers to reduce the high initial costs of buying a ZEV .

Auto 7 Steps to a Shopping Fair

Auto 7 Steps to a Shopping Fair

ADS1SPrice It's auto show season , and while that means updates breathless on new concepts and early model on blogs and social media enthusiasts , the average car buyer is probably not pay much attention. It may seem like car shows are more for gear that car buyers everyday , so it's easy to bypass the auto show in your community. However, for those in the market for a new car, car shows provide an excellent opportunity to explore, compare and shop for a new vehicle.

David T. Fischer knows a thing or two about shopping car and auto showroom shows. He is the president and CEO of The Suburban Collection, which is the 13th largest group of auto sales in the United States and sells 32 different brands of cars. He is also the President Emeritus of the Salon of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, which is one of the car shows the most important in North America. According to Fischer, auto shows are a great place for car buyers.

"In my opinion , auto exposure is the ultimate shopping center ," says Fischer. " Virtually every car that is sold in America is on the screen. It is well lit, warm and cozy and there is always the price and other available information . "

Although regional shows may not have the concepts and sensational debut shows in Detroit, Los Angeles and New York , Fischer said they still " most cars every day " that most people are looking to buy . A car show in your community may not have the cachet of a show in a big city , but it usually means the focus is on the average car buyer , not the people who care more about power livability daily .

Here's what you need to know about shopping for a new car at a car show .

A . prioritize

Lexia 3 v47 With almost all available for sale in the United States to many car shows cars, if you intend to go shopping , you need a game plan. Before you go to a show, think about the cars you want to see closer . " Start with the brands that are close to your price range and priority from there ," says Fischer. You can also browse cars online ( our new rankings cars are a good place to start ) to create a list of your must - see the cars at the show.

2 . Plan ahead

Car shows are great events to know where the vehicles that interest you are located you will save a lot of time and a lot of steps. Before taking your local show, or shortly after arrival, get a map of the layout of the show so you know where you should go see the cars you want to see. Wear comfortable clothing will also , you do a lot of walking and getting in and out of a large number of cars.

One of the best things about car shows is that you have access to the cars themselves . At the car show , most traditional models will be open for visitors to explore. This means that you can try all the seats , check the cargo area and look at the interior features . Bring all those who will regularly be driving or in the car you are considering buying . Make sure everyone is comfortable seats and plenty of space . Check out other features, such as folding seats and pass-through to the third row , to ensure that you are comfortable with how they work. You and your team probably will not be able to drive the car, but you can make sure about the rest of what works for you.

4 . Compare , compare, compare

Shopping for a car in normal circumstances is tiring. When you see a car you have to drive to another dealer compared to another . At the auto show , however , comparable cars are a short walk away. Although a car is still fresh in your mind , head over to the competition so that you can compare.

5 . Shop private

GM Tech2 Not everyone likes to have a hover seller while they shop for a car. At the auto show , however, it tends to be limited sales staff , and most of them leave visitors alone, unless the visitor a question. This means you can take your time and really explore a car. If you have any questions, just look around . Chances are, someone 's brand car or a local dealer is there to answer questions and give you more information.

6 . follow

After exploring the cars you are interested in a car show , it's time to track cars that meet your needs the best. Although you can not buy a car in most auto shows , you can set up an appointment for a test drive at a later date with all staff concessions that may be there . You can also take home more information about the cars you are considering. Fischer notes that the car shows, " used to have a lot of brochures, but now everything is online . " Find QR code scanner and other online resources about the cars you are considering. If you really want a brochure, just ask . There is probably one available . Whether you go on paper or online , auto show resources should tell you dealers in your area to complete your purchase .

7 . Have Some Fun

lexia 3 pp2000 While you can go to the automotive shop on a mission, do not forget to have a little fun . Even small regional shows will probably be some luxury cars on display, and who knows when you'll have another chance to sit in a Bentley or Audi ? " Even if you're not looking for a Porsche , they could be off the screen VW " a show, said Fischer. " You can look at one and think, " maybe someday. "

2015 GM Heavy Duty Pickup: refined monsters

2015 GM Heavy Duty Pickup: refined monsters

Gm tech2 scan tool The Hogs N ' Rodeo Horses , they know how hard . Every Friday night , strap metro Phoenix fear on cracking and falling on bucking broncos with names like "Dreams of Satan. " This is a tour to hell and back, and the last good more than eight seconds before the animal had throws dirt.

This is not cowboys chair.

And when they dust off and head home , they want a ride that is reliable, robust and comfortable. It is not surprising then that the car park is full of heavy pickups , behemoths that make up a quarter of the sales of trucks in America.

This is a market that requires a towing capacity of over 10,000 pounds . This requires diesel engines that could pull Excalibur from the stone. This requires solitude of an airport limousine .

It is a market that the Big Three dominated . This is where General Motors introduced a herd of writers self this winter to show its new , completely redesigned 2015 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra HD pickups.

Arizona has all the attributes of the Wild West with his Stetson, Saguaro cactus and rocky landscape. But it is also the New West high technology, and Asian immigrants ... German made vehicles. I walked through the parking lots filled Cave Creek Chevy , Ford, Dodge and pickups parked cheek side with Honda , Toyota and Hyundai sedans and SUVs . Dependability in both directions , and away from Motown , the West decided long ago that foreign brands are more reliable.

GM engineers trucks are well aware of this dichotomy. They know Detroit has fallen behind in the sedan market and they promise the same fate will not get their microphones .

" There are many lessons to be learned ," said Jeff Luke, GM honcho for all size and mid-size trucks.

This is a good thing. Full-size pickups are the mainstay of Motown. GM sold 600,000 units last year with GMC only sell more mics sold Porsche cars . Loyalty to Chevy , GMC, Ford and Ram trucks is fierce and no wonder . These boxers are massive tools built for this purpose that the engine torque estimate and payload numbers like super sports cars boast 0-60 mph and Nurburgring lap times.

On our test through the Tonto National Forest northeast of Phoenix, we have been regularly asked by the owners of pickup trucks wondering if it was the new Chevrolet HD tested . "Yes," we would say .

" I love it, " a pilot of F-250 will respond. " But I'm a guy from Ford. "

Big 3 pickups are so close to the performance that each new generation model exceeds the standard set by a competitor before . 2014 Chevrolet Silverado won North American Truck of the Year in 2013. 2013 Dodge RAM was Motor Trend Truck of the Year in 2012 ( and 2013 ), the 2010 F- NACTOY ₩ 150 in 2009, and so on. You can write the title in 2014 today: 2015 Ford F- 150 Truck of the Year .

Volvo Dice Vida Detroit 's grip on the U.S. market is best illustrated when trucks where performance is at a premium being compared.

While the tundra and Nissan Titan battle Motown Toyota officials in the pickup segment , nor worth saddle up against the Big 3 HD . Here , politics is less of a distraction . Recognizing that HD should take enormous loads , Washington does not prescribe rules for fuel economy that put American cars at a disadvantage against foreign manufacturers of small cars in the 1980s. Turbo diesel engines with direct injection account for two thirds of sales in the HD market - not because they get a little better mpg but because customers covet their relationship to demand. If the EPA does not force HD to achieve the objectives of arbitrary energy efficiency , it requires that the diesel go on a diet low emissions. There are no less than three devices in each micro GM exhaust particles to scrub - but the owners continue to pay the $ 8,000 premium diesel .

I am a witness . I tow my race car on the track every weekend behind a 3500 Ram 2007.

Weighing more than 7,000 pounds and can tow up to 19,600 pounds , heavy taxes are offensive lineman vehicles . They are the largest bodies of things on the ground , but the speed and the technique is also important . Like comparing a linemen 325 pounds and a lineman 290 pounds , the largest number does not always predicted efficiency.

BMW GT1 Take the new Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD . In a drag race between a Silverado , F250 and Ram - each tow 10,000 pounds - 765 lb-ft of torque Silverado ( Corvette "Big Nasty " Z06 625 pounds -feet of torque Weakling ? ) Won despite a deficit of couple near five percent of crosstown rivals .

Avoid ? auto loan refinancing

Avoid ? auto loan refinancing

Gm tech2 scan tool It is a tempting proposition, but refinancing a car loan can often significantly increase the amount you owe on the loan period .

" The concept often reduce your monthly payments outweigh the financial sensitivity of this decision ," said Jack Gillis, automotive expert for the Consumer Federation of America.

Yet an increasing number of borrowers choose to refinance their auto loan. Last year, the auto refinance loan applications on LendingTree.com almost doubled year on year , according to the loan service online. Completed loans jumped 47 percent over the previous year.

But when can refinance your auto loan is a good choice ? Here are four factors to consider:

A . INTEREST RATES

Refinancing an auto loan allows you to pay your lender and take a new loan at a more favorable annual rate , or April

This means that you do not usually consider to refinance unless you can get a lower APR . But there is one exception: if you want to reduce your monthly payment and are willing to extend the repayment period of your loan. Of course, you will pay more money over time .

Unlike the mortgage loan refinancing , lenders usually have no fees or closing costs to refinance an auto loan. Which gives priority to shop for the best rates. In recent weeks , offers auto loan refinancing is available for LendingTree 1.99 percent for borrowers with the best credit scores.

Check the websites of lenders or portals like Bankrate.com or LendingTree.com .

2 . Estimated savings

The most interesting result in any refinancing is to reduce the amount you pay over the life of the loan.

gm tech2 Candi Maybe you do not shop when you went car shopping and you feel that you may have negotiated a lower interest rate . Or maybe your credit score has improved significantly since you took your car loan , if you are now able to benefit from a lower interest rate . Refinancing could cut your financing costs .

The repayment of your original loan when you refinance could help boost your credit score, the loan would show up in your credit history paid.

Lenders and financial information sites often have online calculators that can help you assess whether a new loan will save you money, such as http://apne.ws/1ebKdr7

Many financial applications are available for users of smartphones and tablets .

3 . DURATION OF LOAN

Extend the life of a car loan can also be risky because - unlike the real estate who can appreciate - cars lose their value over time . Extension of the term of the loan means that you will pay more on the vehicle than it's worth for a longer period .

"This is a terrible position to be if the car is stolen or gets into a serious accident or you desperately need to sell ," said Gillis .

A rule of thumb : If you have less than two years left on your loan, avoid refinancing. "If it is a cash flow problem , it is a consideration , but I would not do it," said Rick Finch , CEO of LendingTree automotive segment .

4 . LIMITATIONS lender

Banks often cap both the amount they will lend and the repayment period for a refinance . They can also limit the types of vehicles that are eligible.

GM Tech2 Some lenders will not refinance loans on motorcycles , recreational vehicle , for example. And usually , lenders refinance vehicles that are more than seven years .

2014 FIAT 500 : New Car Review

2014 FIAT 500 : New Car Review

gm tech2 Candi When we contemplate the 2014 FIAT 500 , the term " overweening ambition " comes to mind. He began to support the launch of the 500 by the end of 2010, when Fiat had the gall to provide a manual-shift MINI Cooper for readers to compare . You can imagine what car won this battle, but we admired that FIAT has not been back to his rival more expensive , more sophisticated. Then FIAT announced that the 500 would sell 50,000 copies in its first year on the market. You can probably understand what happened there , too , but again , we were impressed that FIAT dreamed .

Volvo Dice Vida Now in its fourth year of availability stateside , the 500 is good optimism early FIAT . Sales are strong, and the 500 series continues to grow. The regular 500 hatchback remains , of course, but it is now flanked by the two top 500c and turbo Abarth . There is also a larger model called 500L for buyers who need more space. Only MINI can match the FIAT range of offerings in this category, and as we have said, Cooper is much more .

BMW GT1 By attaching the 500 is in many respects, it certainly has its share of flaws . But if you want a fun small car economy that even JLo would not mind being seen in the ambitious FIAT 500 is the best deal in progress.

Global car sales hit new record estimated 83 million units in 2013

Global car sales hit new record estimated 83 million units in 2013

Volvo dice vida 2011A Global sales of new cars have exceeded 83 million units in 2013 , up 3 % over the year , reaching a record level for four consecutive years , according to estimates by research firm .

     The firm based in Nagoya Fourin estimates that global sales of new cars came to about 83.8 million units in 2013 , an increase of more than 2.3 million units of 81.46 million units in 2012. The growth is largely attributable to sales growth in China and the United States, the most important automotive markets and the second largest in the world. The Company believes that this growth has offset the slump in demand for new cars in Europe and the Southeast Asian markets.

     In China, car sales for 2013 are estimated to have reached nearly 21.5 million units , an increase of 10% compared to a year earlier. An increasing number of Chinese consumers began to buy their own cars, even in inland areas , where car sales have been slower than other regions. "China will continue to be the engine of growth for the global automotive markets for the moment," said an official of Ford Motor.

     In the U.S. , sales of new cars are estimated to have increased by 7.6 % year on year to 15.6 million units in 2013 , reaching a new peak in six years. The increase is due in part to strong sales of large vehicles such as pickup trucks , amid interest rates extremely low and rising stock prices.

    gm tech2 Candi Japan, the third largest automobile market in the world , the new car sales are forecast exceeded 5 million units for the second consecutive year, consumers rushed to buy new cars before the tax increase of Information provided in the current 8% to 5% in April .

     In contrast, Germany has decreased by 4% to 29.5 million units compared to the previous year , falling below the threshold of 3 million for the first time in three years. As such , sales of new cars have continued to stagnate in Europe last year.

     Similarly , sales of new cars were low in Thailand , the largest automobile market in South -East , and sales remained more or less the same as in 2012 in six major countries of South Asia. Fourin estimated that car sales in India fell by around 5 % over the year due to growing concerns over the economic outlook of India.

    elm327 As in 2014, new car sales are likely to slow in the United States that most American car buyers have already replaced their old cars. However, the research firm expects that China will continue to boost new car sales this year. The company also expects sales growth in Indonesia , Argentina and Chile. As a result , global new car sales to reach 88 million units this year .

Nissan taxis prepares for battle with the black London taxis

Nissan taxis prepares for battle with the black London taxis

Gm tech2 scan tool Nissan Motor Co unveiled its new London taxi Monday after a suitable existing traditional black taxi van to the city more like and allow the Japanese group to challenge current duopoly of the London market.

Nissan, which already provides taxis in New York, Barcelona and Tokyo, said the new taxi, gasoline engine would be based on its NV200 van versatile and should be in the streets by the end of the year.

The company unveiled the first taxi in August 2012 but had to adapt based on feedback from transit agencies in the city.

"We worked closely with the mayor's office and associated stakeholders and interested parties to ensure that the new Nissan booth not only raises the bar for driver and passenger, but is also instantly recognizable as its legendary ancestors, "Executive Vice President Andy Palmer said.

Volvo dice vida 2011A The vehicle was designed to give round headlights, a redesigned grille similar to those found on traditional London black cabs and LED lighting to ensure that the yellow taxi sign is clearly visible.

It will also meet the strict regulations for so-called Hackney carriages of London, or black cabs, including a turning radius of 25 feet, which allows it to turn in the narrow streets of London.

Once on the road, Nissan will compete with the dominant manufacturer London Taxi Co (LTC), which functions as Manganese Bronze until it was recorded last year by the Chinese automaker Geely.

Eco City Vehicles also manages the Mercedes Vito taxi.

Transport for London said there were about 23,000 black taxis are allowed to operate in the capital at the beginning of January, with the Mercedes Vito 2177 representative. The rest is done by CTA.

Steve McNamara, the secretary general of the Association of taxi drivers licensed, said the new taxi, would be welcomed by the industry because it would be cleaner than traditional diesel taxis.

Launch X431 GX3 industry rumors have suggested that they are also cheaper than their competitors.

Nissan said he also hopes to have an electric taxi in the streets of a British city in 2015.

Change your driving style

Change your driving style

gm tech2 Candi Braking distances double when the road is wet, so adjust your driving style to the conditions. By slowing down and increasing following distances, you give yourself more time to properly assess conditions and to react to an event.

In very wet conditions of your vehicle may aquaplane - where a film of water off the tire contact with the road - leaving you with a reduced control over the car. Lift the accelerator slowly and do not brake or steer violently to help regain control.

Autel MaxiDAS DS708 Entries sudden steering, throttle and brake will unsettle the car, and with reduced grip in the rain, jerky action will increase your risk of having an accident - do gentle movements with all controls to keep the car as stable as possible.

BMW GT1 Remember, flood water is usually deeper near the sidewalk, so try to stay in the center of the road, keeping the relatively high engine speed and low speed - this way you will have a better control over the car . Do not enter the water without knowing how deep it is.

Electric vs. Fuel Cell Car : Which one will win in the long term?

Electric vs. Fuel Cell Car : Which one will win in the long term?

 Gm tech2 scan tool In about 10 days from now , on the eve of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas , Toyota will present its concept car FCV fuel cell . Toyota and Honda are expected to launch cars fuel cell in 2015.

Hyundai Motors , on the other hand, is a little ahead of the game, as he prepares his cell vehicle Tucson fuel for launch next spring in the United States . As a lure for customers, Hyundai will also offer unlimited supplies and maintenance, with the car at a fixed monthly fee combined with a down payment. This puts the head of fuel cell vehicle to head with the electric car, which itself has seen a resurgence of late with the success of Tesla. Who will win in the long run ?

 Vehicle hydrogen fuel cell in a transport tank , and combine with oxygen from the air to produce electricity. In this sense , it is another form of the electric car, but there are no batteries in them. Instead , the energy is stored in the form of hydrogen , making the refueling easier than for a petrol or a diesel car .

Volvo Dice Vida It also gives the car a long beach , about 480 km in the case of Tucson. This is the range of the upper end of the Tesla Model S , but the Tucson can go a little faster. S model takes several hours for a full charge, but it can be charged to 50 % in 20 minutes compressor Own Tesla. Both vehicles will compete next year in California , green laboratory in the world .

At the moment, the Tesla seems to be the winner. Fuel cell vehicles can be powered easily, but they have other problems. The hydrogen must be supplied to the fuel dispensing station , and it is not easy. Flammability serious questions about safety.

The source of hydrogen is another matter , a source of oil will not make it more environmentally friendly than fossil fuels . This is true in the case of the electric car as well , but the network of charging Tesla Motors depends on the solar City , a private solar energy use. This is the California sun , but it may not be easy in other states or countries.

La Haie hydrogen

ADS-1S However, the fuel cell car could give its electric counterpart a run for its money in the future . Recent research has thrown open opportunities for new catalysts instead of expensive platinum . Major manufacturers have made progress in technology that lowers the cost and size of the fuel cell . There will be more advanced . However , electric cars are still to come because it is difficult to build a network of hydrogen fueling . This can change .

Artificial photosynthesis may one day give a clean hydrogen source for charging stations with water and sunlight . It could be closer to reality than people think.

Harvard professor Daniel Nocera had an artificial leaf a few years ago that uses catalysts cheap and can operate with relatively dirty water, but his work is being developed initially for the storage of the grid. The Joint Centre of artificial photosynthesis in California is supposed to have made fundamental progress , but it has a horizon of 10 years. Researchers at Stanford last month claimed to have developed a process which is cheaper and more efficient than current methods .

elm327 The magic number for artificial photosynthesis is somewhere between 15% and 25 %. If it works this efficiency, artificial photosynthesis is a better alternative than natural gas to produce hydrogen. Car fuel cell will then become a good competitor for electric vehicles , as it becomes cheaper to build charging stations . We do not know when that day comes .

First drive : 2015 Kia K900

First drive : 2015 Kia K900

Gm tech2 scan tool If you long for the return of American cruisers old as those made once a Cadillac, Lincoln , Buick , Oldsmobile , and perhaps a Korean limousine as new flagship K900 Kia will give you hope . Premium brands in Detroit today have evolved now riding , doctrine crisp treatment of European sports sedans , Kia apparently believes there is an underserved U.S. market hungry for cushy , plush, and undemanding .

The K900 is the size rear-drive Lexus LS , Mercedes S Class and Audi A8 according to its size and power, but costs thousands less : about $ 65,000 in top trim instead of $ 90,000 or more for sexy Europeans. As expected, the active safety features such as lane change, blind spot alert and collision warning are part of the package. The K900 will be available in spring 2014 as a 2015 model .

Driving Impressions : The K900 higher level , we rented Kia was packed with 420 - hp , 5.0 - liter V8 rather than the 311 - hp 3.8-liter V6 standard . The slick , powerful V8 and eight-speed automatic produces effortless acceleration delivered quietly and competently. The car wafts along quietly with a cushioned ride well isolated from the outside world coarse . Isolated , it may be stable but it is not . There is enough of the familiar floating buoyancy Florida car grandpa and corrugated corners have the K900 wallow like a water bed.

Obviously, the handling is not the strong point of K900 . The light of the effort, slow steering response is devoid of feedback, and the early onset of lean body is also a reminder to the Nixon era . It does not take much tilt of the winding wheel and squealing tires obtain the body .

Volvo Dice Vida The sumptuous interior is plush and well put together . Its suede lining feels luxurious and leather , sewing, and plastics look good, but the atmosphere still seems a bit austere. A concession to modernity is a unified central button - controller that could be intimidating at first, but at least the K900 has some familiar discs and switches to work the climate system, heated seats and steering wheel buttons. Unfortunately Kia has taken a page from the book of Toyota with a light switch that makes it too easy to cancel daytime driving performance . The shifter is a copy of the electronic shifter BMW. And security experts are mounted on the door as those in the Mercedes- Benz models.

The rear seat is huge and the version we drove , passengers are able to adjust the angle. Unfortunately, parasols side windows are manual rather than power function as competitors. But the soft doors - closing show how ambitious Hyundai / Kia is .

The K900 is a cousin of the Hyundai Equus and greater than the other large sedan Kia Cadenza shadow. Its Korean name, K9 , had to be changed for an obvious reason ( Woof !) And a temporary nickname Quoris , do not make the grade or, if Namers come loaded with harmless K900 . Prices start at around $ 50,000 for the V6 lower trim versions.

BMW GT1 Take CR: Those who aspire to a highway cruiser relaxing as Roadmasters of yesteryear and also $ 65,000 to replay the experience could happily live in a K900 . They would get a big comfortable car with a modern interior and engine to measure. But it is an open question how many clients luxury sedan will be ready to be seen behind the Kia emblem , more easily associated with K- Mart name of Cartier.

Porsche Bringing V - 6 Macan Diesel in America, no four-cylinder models

Porsche Bringing V - 6 Macan Diesel in America, no four-cylinder models

ADS-1S Porsche will bring a diesel version of its new compact crossover Macan in the United States , a move that should lower the purchase price of a new P- car , uh, P- crossed below $ 50,000. Porsche said car and the driver of the diesel 258 hp Macan will be imported to our shores sometime after Macan Macan Turbo S and on sale in early 2014 . The Stuttgart automaker also confirmed that neither the gas nor turbo diesel - four cylinders under construction for other markets will be available in U.S. Macans .

Lexia 3 v47 The 3.0 - liter V - 6 diesel in the Macan is a variant of the engine used in the Cayenne Diesel and many Audi models , including the Q5 crossover that is based on Macan . It uses a single variable turbine geometry turbo to 428 pounds -feet of torque from as low as 1,750 rpm . We believe the diesel Macan should be good for fuel economy rating of at least 24 mpg city and 31 mpg highway on the EPA test cycle. Like all other Macans , diesel S sends power to the ground through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and standard four-wheel drive .

GM Tech2 When the diesel Macan is going on sale here we are betting that it will be around the beginning of 2015, it will slot below the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V- 6 powered - Macan S as model entry and should undermine its $ 51.095 price of a few thousand dollars. While the turbocharged four-cylinder gas would have made a fitting base Macan , we suspect Porsche is wary of stepping on the toes of the company cousin Audi , which generates most of its sales Q5 with a 2.0 - liter turbo four-cylinder . Direct buyers Macan sensitive to the price of diesel model will also help to stimulate Porsche average fuel economy now face more stringent standards.

Singer-built car, however, has shoveled out shoveling

Volvo Vida Dice Diagnostic Tool Singer-built car, however, has shoveled out shoveling end of the 60-glamor with a sleek chassis that is only a slight regression. Those of us lovers of holistic goodness of the best 1990s, automobile cars with enough power to get into trouble and chassis especially enough to get one-on might look like 911 as one of the ultimate examples the philosophy of the time, though built with materials state-of-the-2000-teen in the places where it counts. However, if we had with technical features of this car, we would have given up the ball race-spec the car owner specified in favor of something a little more consistent way.

Volvo Dice Vida The 3.8-liter naturally aspirated engine has a torque curve as corpulent Sydney Greenstreet, the power delivery is not different from the 993 Turbo rented. Without turbochargers bunched glorious internal combustion noise, the intoxicating song full power flat-six whangs on pipe center exit.

Despite its fanciness, fruit Dickinson appears as a completely honest device. Although it inspires confidence, which requires a good 911-car-like as to be treated with respect. The engine is at the rear, and, besides ABS, electronic bacon-savers are absent. Fortunately, the car communicates so it requires absolute stupidity approaching its limits without knowing what you're up against.

It is, without doubt, the most satisfying car sharply this writer has led to this day.

BMW GT1 Whatever you do, do not call it a "Singer 911." This is a "reinvented Porsche 911 by Singer," the awkward name of a warrant of a precarious peace with Zuffenhausen. While the private sector, some Porsche have told they are hit with cars Dickinson, CEO of Porsche Matthias Müller is perhaps unreasonable to trademark protection. We once heard of him he would buy a Porsche tuning shop famous fair to stop it. So "Porsche 911 by Singer reinvented" it is. We do not want to get Herr Müller unfortunate ideas when we suggest this is one of the most wonderful examples of the 911 built anywhere.

How to find a good car mechanic

How to find a good car mechanic

Gm tech2 scan tool We have had good experiences with Yelp recommendations that we looked for a mechanic to work on long-term 1996 Lexus ES 300 Edmunds, which is the subject of our project car without debt. With our new vehicles in the long term we tend to use only the dealers. But because the cost control is important for the Lexus project, we used four times Yelp to locate independent mechanics. Of the four, we return to three of them. We found Yelp to be the most useful site, with its examination volume and convenience.

Lexia 3 v47 Here are some tips to help you refine your search mechanic. Type "Auto" in the search field and enter your zip code. You can filter the results based on the distance, most commented and rated. The goal should be to find a place that strikes a balance between a high and a large number of comments. For example, a place can have a glowing review, but if this is the only review the experience of the client may not be the same as yours. Or worse, it could be a misleading review of an employee or business owner.

Yelp has an algorithm that allows it to identify misleading comments, but sometimes they can slip by unnoticed. This is why it is important not to place undue reliance on examination. Instead, see what patterns emerge after reading many reviews. Find Reviews that are specific and give many details about user experiences.

Autel MaxiDAS DS708 Sometimes the owner of a business meet to review. This response can be either a thank you to someone for a good review or a defense or an apology if the examination was negative. Anyway, we consider a thoughtful response a good sign - especially in response to a negative review. It shows that the company cares about its reputation.

2013 Ford Fiesta ST

2013 Ford Fiesta ST

Gm tech2 scan tool When we saw the Ford Fiesta ST as a concept car at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2011 and later in the form of five-door show in Los Angeles, it seemed like a no-brainer that the go-fast small hatch would be built . Not surprisingly, Ford formalized with the reveal of the production version of the spec 2013 Ford Fiesta ST debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show ahead of its launch in the European exhibition hall early next year. As was the case in the Fiesta ST concept, the driving force comes from a turbocharged 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine in line with 178 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels by means of a manual six-speed transmission. Ford says the Fiesta ST will hit 62 mph in less than seven seconds with a top speed of 136 mph northern tip. To help keep up with the increase in power, the Fiesta ST also scores unique suspension setting which is 0.6. Fiesta less regular, Torque Control routing control system and a three-mode stability.

MaxiDAS DS708 Mechanical improvements of the Fiesta ST is offset by a new body kit with a trapezoidal grille mesh, roof spoiler, new side skirts, lower front and rear fascias, and dual exhaust tips. Recaro seats with contrasting inserts that match the bodywork of metal sport pedals, and Sync voice recognition are all standard. The car looks like a smaller version of the Focus ST - a move that we're sure it was deliberate. Based on what Ford has told us so far, we have high hopes for the character of the performance of the Fiesta ST. Director of Ford Global Performance Vehicles Jost Capito claims drivers "will be blown away by the new Fiesta ST." An engineer with Ford Special Vehicle Team previously told us that the new car is "designed to reward excellent drivers, novices and flat." The car has been tested and developed at the Nurburgring in Germany.

GM Tech2 A big question remains: Is the Ford Fiesta ST be sold in the United States? The version presented here is a two-door model that probably will not happen on our shores because the U.S. market only gets four-door Fiestas at present. But Ford has received a strong response to the four-door Fiesta ST Concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show last fall and "remains open to the idea of" selling the Fiesta ST in America. This sounds like a tacit confirmation to us that the hot hatch is intended for the U.S. market shaped four-door shortly after the two-door launches in Europe next year.
