Auto maintenance is something that not everyone is familiar about. There are some simple things though, that can make a huge difference in ensuring a healthy maintenance. I have put together a few of them for you that have helped me successfully maintain my car. Always go by the manufacturer’s guidelines. If your local mechanic recommends all kinds of service for your vehicle, simply say sorry. Do not do repairs that need not necessarily be done unless and until it is specified in the guidelines.
While washing the car, ensure that you take out the mats and hose them down. This will ensure that all the dirt and dust deposited on it gets washed off. Schedule the oil changes regularly. This helps your car to run smoothly. Never replace the windshield washer fluid with water. It can damage the system. Conduct a routine check on this compartment and ensure that it is never short of the fluid at any time. Do not leave it till it’s completely empty.
Go through the user manual. Not many do that but it helps you to be prepared in case anything goes wrong with the vehicle. This contains everything you need to know about your car. These tips have been very useful for me and I hope that it’s useful for you as well.
I was taken aback when I read a local daily that said that many motorists do not have a clue about basic car maintenance. Some are bad enough to not be able to differentiate between the indicator and brake light. It was shocking to note that many don’t have a clue to open their car bonnet even. Not be aware about basic maintenance or to conduct basic checks can put you in a dangerous spot. You may not understand the warning signs that your vehicle is giving you when there is a problem.
Getting to know to do some simple basic checks can help you understand your vehicle better and at the same time ensure your safety as well. Also, this goes a long way in making sure that your vehicle enjoys a better road life. Checking for oil levels is the simplest checks. All that you need to do is to use the dipstick to find out the oil levels and change the oil if there it’s necessary. Also regular checks need to be done for brake fluid, tires and lights. Cleaning or replacing the fuel and air filters can help in increasing engine life. If you do not know the basics, kindly ensure that you learn and conduct the routine checks from now on.
p style=”text-align: justify;”>If you are looking for a car that offers you fun, excitement, comfort, luxury and class then don’t miss the 2013 version of the Cadillac CTS – V. It is one of the best on the market that has marked a name for itself in performance. This six speed transmission vehicle offers an extremely comfortable ride that compliments its performance levels. It has a super advanced suspension system that adapts quickly to the road conditions and the driving inputs. The car feels smaller and lighter than the rest of the sedans in the luxury models though it is not so.
Apart from the quality of performance, it also offers plenty of comfort for the driver and passengers. The front seats are spacious but the same cannot be said of the back seats which has the space to fit only two though it says for three. There is lesser leg room space for the back seat passengers as well. There are some fascinating features like rear parking sensors, front seat heating, Bluetooth connectivity and dual climate control. Overall the Cadillac CTS – V brings with it class and style. It has an incredibly fast pick-up which offers the thrill that you are looking for. The controls feel a bit awkward and the fact that it offers only rear wheel drive makes it a lesser contender among the luxury models.
If you are a person for whom style matters a lot, then the Panamera 2013 may not be the best choice for you. Apart from that one obvious flaw it is a fantastic sports sedan that has the right combination of all the core elements. The Panamera has ensured that the Porsche brand reaches out to a wider audience without having to compromise on the virtues and features that contribute in the making of a fine sports car.
I am not overly fond of the exteriors of the Panamera, but the cabin in pretty elegant and the limo like rear offers plenty of room inside. If the rear seats are laid down flat, there is plenty of cargo space which is quite impressive. The claim from Porsche is that it can fit in two adult bicycles inside with this arrangement. If you are expecting the high tech safety gadgets of the full size sedan models, then you are sure to be disappointed. You will find plenty of control buttons for almost everything that can be confusing for most drivers. It has all the standard safety equipments intact though it has not been crash tested by the IIHS or the NHTSA. The massive 550 HP powered V-8 engine makes it a contender to be one of the best sports sedan in recent times.
Plenty of requests have lined up after the Geneva auto show where the LaFerrari was launched first. Heart warming scenes for the Ferrari as thousands have given their request to buy this machine when it hits the roads early next year. The high price does not seem to bother the auto enthusiasts who do not mind paying more than a million dollars for this hot Ferrari.
Some of them were broken hearted when they found out that the makers have decided to restrict production to 499 numbers only. This only means that those who have secured their slots to buy this vehicle can deem themselves lucky as the value of this machine is bound to increase by the time the car is built and ready for the road. It is yet again one of the flagship super car models from Ferrari where the value of the vehicle appreciates and investors are ready to put their money on this one.
With an increase in investments on performing assets and the latest revelation that these cars offer a whooping 395% return on investment, it is no surprise that the Ferrari special series’ super cars are sold out even before they enter the market.
The CEO of Fiat and Chrysler, Sergio Marchionne has shown his interest in driving American muscle cars though he is a proud owner of a few Maseratis and Ferraris. He has been driving on the sub urban region of Detroit on his 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 but word is out that he will be shopping soon for a new car once again as he has announced that he would be giving up this mean machine for charity.
This is a special Challenger piece as it has been modified to suit the great man himself. This will be sold off at Palm Beach in Florida. The one who offers the highest bid will be getting additional perks along with the car by the way of the Mopar’s latest 3rd Generation 426 Hemi V-8 crate engine that boasts of 540 HP.
There are some custom touches to the car that include the legendary racing stripes in dark charcoal that were specially hand designed for Marchionne. The other highlights include the adjustable coil overs, smoked tail lights, lower suspension, high flow exhaust system, 20 inch aluminum wheels with black matte finish, etc. The black leather seats are embroidered with the 390 and SRT logos.
The country is heading towards offering a healthier and pollution free environment for the future generations and the automotive industry is gearing up to ensure that they do their bit by introducing green cars with improvised fuel economy and lower emissions. On that note, the 2013 Mazda CX-5 had been launched which is seen as the perfect green car in the compact SUV segment. It is spacious with four doors and is five seated. It comes in three models Grand Touring, Touring and Sport. The Sky active G engine with four cylinders is the pride and joy of the CX-5.
This offers a fuel economy much like the hybrid varieties without impacting the performance of the vehicle. Much of this is made possible by the direct fuel injection technology used in the CX-5 that enjoys a cylinder compression of 13.1:1. The vehicle boasts of six speed automatic transmission run on 155 HP but still with an amazing fuel economy of 33 mpg on the freeway and 26 mpg within the city limits. There is much comfort on offer and hence the 2013 Mazda CX-5 has been nominated for the 2013 best green car award. There are some worthy competitors in the segment as well but this vehicle has impressed many nevertheless.
