April 30th, 2013 by Accessory Expert

The two loves that exist in every human’s life are technology and cars. It’s absolutely fantastic that the two have now joined hands to create the most ravishing automobile world for you.
Technology that’s Obvious
Not every piece of technology being used in the car is new. Some of it has been taken for granted by the car buyers by now. Conveniences like automatic windshield wipers, power steering and electric ignition have existed in the cars for some-time now. This has made them synonymous with obvious things in the car, especially when they go to purchase it. Airbags and cruise control are the modern technological advances that had created a sensation when they were first launched. But, today they too join the gang of the obvious features. It is amazing how the features that once rocked the world as demand are today being taken for granted. So, you can say that technology always existed in the cars.

The Modern Technological Hype
Some cars like the Mercedes Benz offer a new-on-the-block technology that has caused certain hype. The technological advances have been opted by the other cars as well.
The rear mounted radar gives out a signal that there is an object behind you or some traffic is coming your way. This way you would avoid accidents. This technological advancement has been observed in cars like Chrysler.
It is impossible to drive in the nights especially when it is dark and you are crossing streets where they may be some walkers. To solve such issues, Mercedes Benz S Series came up with night vision along with the pedestrian detection technology that gave out way to the cars even in the night.
So, with the advancement of technology increasing with the day, you would find yourself in the web of buying cars just for the technology they serve you with.

April 8th, 2013 by Accessory Expert

Winter can be a tough time for car owners with you have to worry a lot more than just slippery roads or your car covered in snow when you want to take it out to go somewhere. Driving in winter is a test of your driving skills, but skills alone will not do the job.  You need your vehicle to be in a condition here it can also tackle the harsh winter conditions and for that you will have to do some preparations before the winter sets in.
Winter Care Of Your Car
Some of the major issues that you will face with your car during winter are while trying to start your vehicle after a long gap. When temperatures are low, there is a possibility that the liquids in your car will not be as fluid as they are generally and therefore will not make for an easy start.  You need to check if the antifreeze is at the right consistency required for low temperatures, check the threads of your tires and change them if required. Traction is very important while driving in slippery conditions and worn out tires are a bad option in such conditions. Check the car battery to see if it in good condition as cold starts will drain poor condition batteries and change the oil in your engine before winter.
Things To Do In Winter
It is always better to keep your car fueled up on a full tank in winter and if the fuel reaches the half mark, top it up as the added weight of the fuel will help you while driving in slippery conditions. Regularly check the lights on your car, the windshield wipers and the belts and hoses in your car. The hot and cold conditions can make hoses and belts to crack and break so always check them properly. Always vary a flashlight, a blanket and a first aid kit in your car for any emergency.

General Auto Show in Geneva Sees New Car Brand Launched

March 15th, 2013 by Accessory Expert

Chinese-Israeli car brand launched
Geneva auto show is like all other auto show places in the world. It sees a lot of debuts that come in. Most are known brands that come in with new car models or remakes. Every auto shown here is a debut in its own right as it is a car model that is being launched and has not been on the roads before. However it is comparatively rare to see a new car brand being launched. That is not something that is seen every day. Recently Qoros is a car brand that was introduced in the Geneva auto show and despite Alfa Romeo 4C, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible and other glitzy cars, this car brand managed to steal the thunder that day. Qoros 3 sedan
Specifics
If you were not there to see it up front, here are few specifics:
The brand is a joint venture between a Chinese and an Israeli car brand
It was their first auto show
The first car to be displayed was the Qoros 3 Sedan
This was the first car of the brand to be offered in Europe
The initial manufacturing capacity of the car is 150000 units
It was found that the supercars drew in the biggest crowds unlike the 3 Sedan and the concept cars at the Qoros stand. There were certain unique features of the brand and the link with China has brought it into the spotlight very quickly.
Asian auto industry trends
China’s fast growing dominance in the car market is indicated by the following characteristics:
Asia has produced about 51 percent of the cars and trucks in the world in 2012
The share of the motor production in Japan has dropped from 16 to 11 percent
Even though brands like Kia and Hyundai have increased in the US market, the overall share of South Korea dropped in car production last year
78China’s output has risen in comparison
Reasons to look out for China
The recent automobile trends indicate that, if a new Chinese brand has been launched in the European market, it might well be a sign to sit up and take notice:
Output of cars from China has risen in comparison to other Asian countries
It is the fourth ranking country when it comes to cars and trucks, a rank that was established in 2005
It claims 8.5 percent share in the global car manufacturing scenario
As the Chinese companies grow in wealth, it is hard for them to stay out of the US and the European markets
The Qoros brand has higher chances of succeeding as it has well established ties with Western designers and suppliers. Since it was launched in a neutral environment, it will allow people to take a neutral view of the car brand and give it a chance to prove itself. If one looks at the numbers, China is rapidly rising and it might fast become a contender with the likes of Japan and Germany.

Fiat Finally Decides Against Building The Maserati In Detriot

The Maserati Levante was initially planned to be built at the Chrysler Group’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant in America. However, Fiat has now decided against building the Maserati in Detroit and plans to build the Levante at its facility in Italy. According to the company spokesperson, the main reason for the change of plans was that due to the demand of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Durango, the Detroit plant will be fully absorbed in making these two vehicles. However, industry insiders state that this is a part of a larger Fiat strategy to produce high end cars such as the Maserati and Alfa Romeo in Europe to revive the failing European business. Another reason may be that the Fiat factories in Italy were running at lower than 50% capacity and the company was afraid of the backlash of its Italian workers which would result in lower car sales in Italy. These losses would be something which might have become difficult to absorb for the prestigious automaker. 

Chrysler Forced To Recall Its Mid Sized Cars For What Is Being Described As A Fuel Tank Issue

The Chrysler group has been busy recalling about 2000 mid sized cars back into its fold in order to fix a certain batch which included fuel tank control valves that were damaged. An interesting piece of statistic is that out of the total number of vehicles being recalled worldwide, 1785 are in the States alone. The company has also assured to replace the fuel tank assemblies if the control valves in any of the cars are found to be damaged. BMW faced a similar recall problem just recently as well when they had to bring back 27 BMW Phantom as a few vehicles missed out on being fitted with anti mis fueling devices.

Tuned cars are impressive even from a distance.  Some people, who don’t actually have interests in knowing the specifics of a car, are even awed just by seeing the sleek curves of a car’s body kit, or its sharp lights. These parts are mostly the basic indications that the car is pimped. Once the cars take the streets, people often stop and keep their eyes gazed as they pass. Some even immediately bring out their cameras and take a picture of them.

One of the most basic things people need to consider before buying tuned cars is to know the shop well. They should already have heard or read a lot of positive reviews about the service team. Of course, it is just easy to say that the cars are already tuned and you can even see the parts they have installed. However, its safety and quality can’t be checked with just a gaze.
