Acura ILX, Ford CR-V Remembered for Defective Entrance Lock Mechanism

Friday, July 20, 2012 | comments

Ford has released a globally remember for 321,453 CR-V SUV automobiles and Acura ILX cars to substitute defective entrance secure systems. If the inner entrance manage is managed at the same time with the manual or power entrance secure, the inner entrance manage launch wire can become partly turned off. In this event, the entrance will not secure when shut, or if the entrance does secure and close, it will start when the entrance hair are managed, increasing the potential for the entrance to start while the car is in movement. In the U.S., 166,000 CR-V SUVs from the 2012 design season and 6,200 ILX’s from the 2013 design season are suffering from this remember. Affected owners can take their automobiles into Ford for a cost-free replacement.

Lincoln MKX - Extending Its Gears!

Thursday, June 28, 2012 | comments

I like this car, along with its Edge sibling from Ford Fusion. The updated nav-radio-heater interface takes a bit of time to sort out. But once you know where all of the buttons are and what they do, not to mention what can be found on the touch screen and doesn't have a button at all, the car is just fine. Sometimes I think in trying to offer so many options, they sometimes gum up the entire operation, and I would rate this one as being very close to overload. And I'm not really sure I'd opt for the upgraded Lincoln here, especially at 47 large. The Edge SEL can be had for about $10,000 less. I liked this car, and the sticker at $47K is quite honestly less than I expected, a rarity these days. I even like the new Lincoln front end (perhaps another rarity). Lincoln needed a defining design element, and the front ends on its cars and trucks accomplish that.

The truck drives well for the most part, with enough guts from the V6 and a nice, smooth transmission. The suspension strikes a decent balance between ride and handling (more toward the soft side) considering the weight you're hauling around. The interior materials are first-rate, and I love the center stack and its clean look. Of course, the reason it's clean is the MyLincoln Touch, and its radio, climate and navigation controls all use touch-sensitive buttons. They can, as Hart notes above, take some getting used to. I was annoyed at times, but I assume that would lessen over time. Overall, I think this is a fine alternative to a Lexus RX 350 or a Cadillac SRX. I'll say this: I'd take this all day over the last BMW X3 I drove. This blows that away.

Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X F 400: The Best Production Ever!

Monday, June 25, 2012 | comments (1)


Here comes the most powerful production version of the Lancer Evolution as of the moment! Just last year the said model has been launched which entices everyone in the automotive world. Basically The FQ 400 is set to on sale in the UK in June of this year. To cite some of the specs the new FQ-400 comes with a retuned 2.0-liter turbocharged engine which is definitely capable of producing 403bhp at 6,500 rpm and 3,500 rpm sending the sports sedan from standstill to 62mph (100km/h) in a mere 3.8 seconds before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 155mph or 250km/h.
It is pretty sure that those interested in the FQ-400 wouldn't have mind at all if Mitsubishi removed most of these expedient features and thus lowering the car's price and most importantly, shaving a few pounds off the FQ-400's weight which is lighter than the previous production. And while The standard EVO X's advanced Super-All Wheel Control (S-AWC) four-wheel-drive system with Active Stability Control and Active Centre Differential, Active Yaw Control and Sport ABS, remains of course unchanged.

 Some of the upgrades are actually accompanied by a more hostile styling kit that comprises of a heavily vented bonnet, a new lightweight composite front bumper featuring carbon-fibre elements on its leading edges, a rear wing incorporating a gurney strip and a roof-mounted 'Vortex Generator', composite side skirts, a re-styled rear bumper with a carbon fibre diffuser plus additional lighting and High Intensity Discharge (HID) lights.

Jaguar Overheating Issues Solved!

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 | comments (1)

It's critical to ensure your XK8 cooling system parts are in tip top order for piece of mind. Worse case severe overheating scenarios are; blown head gaskets, damaged cylinder heads and potentially a deterioration in engine lubrication quality. The latter can then affect the longevity of crankshaft bearings and the general life of the XK8 engine. Relating to the water pump, this manifests itself in the disintegration / breaking up of the plastic impellor within the water pump. This then leads to reduced coolant flow, localized heating and the worst case problems mentioned above. Indicative signs of a cooling problem on the XK8 engine are the cooling fans staying on for long periods regardless of temperature and / or one of the top hoses blowing off.


Before going to the effort of removing / replacing the water pump, with a cold engine, take the filler cap off the expansion tank and then ask someone to run the engine for you at 1200 rpm. Should the pump be working correctly, water should be circulating / swirling well in the tank. If there is a problem, then there will be very little swirl and therefore indicative of a problem with the water pump. If you are going to the effort of checking it then it's worth replacing with the latest XK8 parts including water pump and other cooling system parts. 2003 cars also suffered from breakdown of other plastic cooling system parts.


These relate to the thermostat housing rising out of the block and the bridge pipe linking the cylinder heads on naturally aspirated cars (the XKR has an alloy pipe). The thermostat housings are now available in alloy and we hope that the bridge pipe will follow. The Jaguar Part number for the water pump is - AJ8008912 and all later water pumps supersede to this part number.

SAAB Forces Shut Down This Year

Tuesday, May 29, 2012 | comments

Several years ago, Saab Automobile had filed for bankruptcy and though they will no longer stay on business, marking the end of more than 60 years. After the filing of the bankrupcy report, the Swedish automaker’s owners had already surrendered their assets to the judicial court.Of course Saab fans might figure out and see GM as the major competitor and the villain in this corporate drama and is now reaching the peak of success to the automotive industry. There have been also rumor that the company has forced and paid the said auto maker to get out of the industry and merge their assets to them.

The name of Saab's last concept was not launched to the market due to the said issue and that is the renowned Phoenix which was shown off at the 2011 Geneva auto show, a final bid by the company to show it could rise from nowher. Its turbocharged 2.8-liter engine made 300 horsepower and cabin technology was built around a hard drive-based navigation system.The company, founded in 1947 and owned by GM since 2000, was due to be shut down in 2009 as GM consolidated its brands.Victor Muller, former CEO of Spyker Cars, threw Saab a lifeline, taking over the company and attempting to arrange financing. Most recently, Chinese automaker Youngman Automobile Group was set to purchase Saab. But GM, which still owns Saab technology licenses, spiked the deal by refusing to extend the licensing to Young man.

2012 Silverado - GM's Most Comprehensive Hybrid Vehicle

Tuesday, May 22, 2012 | comments

Brand new year has brand new surprises for Chevy as they launched the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid. This  full-size American pickup is perhaps the most utilitarian vehicle on the market to date. Good thing General Motors made sure the first pickup trucks that use its Two-Mode Hybrid system would be nearly as capable as their non-hybrid brethren was actually introduced for the 2009 model year up to the present . Mainly when talking about the capacity of the truck it can tow up to 6,100 pounds, the bed can haul a little more than 1,400 pounds and still deliver 20 mpg city/23 mpg highway with a combined rating of 21 mpg. While some in the environmental community don’t understand there are occasions when fuel economy has to be forfeited in the name of capability, trades people, commercial users, farmers and ranchers need pickup trucks.

When it comes to power, we all know about the trucks. Brute. Tough. Power. If it’s turbocharged enthusiasm, both the Corvette and Cobalt seem to rustle up plenty of interest. We’re talking about serious versatility. However what else should you expect in what is seen as the “All-American brand?” Chevy Spoilers are versatile as well, shotgunning some fast style to a whole assortment of vehicles. GM  brings to the table a wide range of models that are capable of taking over the road in several different ways.

Buick Enclave: A GM's Masterpiece

Thursday, May 10, 2012 | comments

Despite of the longed-stopped production, the beauty of Buick has been appreciated by people although there are only a few models left in the present day and one of them is the Buick Enclave. This was known to be as one of the competent models launched by the auto maker. When it comes to SUVs, this is one of the well known names in the market today.

Enclave is simply a minivan that is equipped with powerful and cool features, which boosts its reputation in all the way run. Although the price is quite costly, the performance is unquestionable since this vehicle has been tested for long. In the 21st century, Enclave has a newest series which has been similar to the past only some major modification has happened. For several years of hiding under the rock, people once again recognized the beauty and performance it possessed.

Some experts said, Enclave is comparable to Chevrolet or GMC which by launched by General Motors but when it comes to performance, there is no doubt enclave has a say to it….The 2012 Enclave is actually huge when it comes to size as it can accommodate up to 8 passengers on board and could run on its maximum speed…

Overall, Enclave is one of the apple of the eye for many people. With its stunning performance every driver is ready to take a drive for it. On the other hand, there are now Buick parts, which are definitely great help to many drivers especially in terms of car troubles and other issues that might ruin driving…

Is Hummer Losing Its Performance?

Friday, April 27, 2012 | comments

Just recently, the auto maker General Motors has announced the recall of so far more than 20,000 vehicles due to the piece of hood that shakes every time the machine starts the engine.  On the public point, this is just a discrepancy on the auto maker’s side but on my own point of view but to sound offensive, the performance and the reputation of Hummer was being affected. On the other hand, there are several things they should consider in order to come up with pleasant results in terms of sales.
Personally, I started experiencing weird things about my H3 when the vehicle reached the 30k miles after I bought it. I was going home from the vacation when I observed the hood is shaking at 60kph. I thought It was just a normal case when suddenly, the said thing continue to happen. As I read this article, I was convinced that there is a recall direct from the auto maker so I was the first one to go back and ask for the recall.  I was hoping everything would be under control or else I got to get my refund of having those vehicles and would provide another one. But I just want to hope that the problem would be fixed so as for the hummer to boost not just the sales but the image to the public.  Good thing now, they are dealing with replacement parts which therefore made the repair job easier than before and with the engagement of repair manuals, customers would surely be glad.

Isuzu’s Reputation In the Auto Industry

| comments

Isuzu is known for its finest sedans and trucks. In fact, the Japanese cars has already launched over hundreds of models which are now seen in the market up to now. However, what’s good with Isuzu is the campaign they have launched to help the environment and people in saving their money for gas cost. Aside from that, Isuzu has developed engines that are friendly to the environment as well. For several years in the industry, they have built their reputation to the public and earned sales as well. To date, Isuzu is continuing the campaign and the government is in favor of it most especially in European countries. However, when it comes to reliability, there is no question about it. Isuzu cars have huge space allotted and their cars could run well.
The present of Isuzu parts always plays a vital role to drivers since they could now do the repair and replacement job without hassling factors. On the other hand, talking about the reputation in the market since Isuzu vehicles has been launched on the market, people had already trusted them. And now that they end up with some sort of help like service bulletins and guides to drivers and vehicle owners, there is no doubt they would be reaching their succeeding years. At some point, there were newer models being launched which have grabbed the attention of man such of the isuzu DMAX, which had already generated sales for the past several years. There is no doubt that in the coming future they would remain on their position as they are today.

Travis Pastrana Drinks Down The Avoid Dart Move Car

Monday, April 9, 2012 | comments

Very soon, you are going to be able simply to move into a Avoid supplier and put cash down on a new Avoid Dart lightweight automobile. While the Dart you can buy guarantees to be much better designed and designed than the Avoid Quality it changes, it’s still no go with for the Dart that Travis Pastrana will be generating in the 2012 International RallyCross period.

Pastrana’s Dart gets 600 energy and all-wheel-drive, while the Dart you can buy gets a portion of that and delivers its energy to the top side tires only. We seriously question that the Mopar areas collection has what you need to develop a Dart with 600 hp sent to all four tires, and we’re very sure that Pastrana’s journey is certainly not street-legal in any of the 50 declares. It does look a lot interesting, though, and we’d welcome the opportunity to invest a day behind the rim, enjoying in the dust.

The International RallyCross period shoes off in Currently, Northern Carolina on May 26, and Pastrana can anticipate serious competitors this season. Lady Mirra is returning, again generating for Subaru, while Tanner Foust and Marcus Grönholm will be generating the confirmed Honda Bamboula. Rhys Millen will contend in the sequence this season, generating an all-new Cars Veloster. If you want to examine out the routine of activities or find out more about the International RallyCross Series, go on over to the GRC web site.
