5 New Year’s Resolutions for Car Owners

 

You probably make New Year’s resolutions for yourself but how about for your car? You faithful jalopy is what gets you everywhere you need to go so show your car a little love in 2016. Here’s how.

  1. Start paying attention. It’s easy to laugh at those who treat their car like a cherished pet but the truth is many major repairs start out as minor ones that could have been caught early, if only you had been paying attention. Simply noticing subtle changes in how your car runs or handles can be an effective early warning system. Something doesn’t feel right? It probably isn’t.
  2. Consider seeing a specialist.Some makes of cars such as Audi or Volkswagen can benefit from specialty repair shops. For instance, aVW repair shop will know the ins and outs of your particular vehicle much better than a generic auto repair franchise. Getting regular maintenance and repairs done right the first time is well worth the investment.
  3. Do a little DIY. Taking just a few minutes to inspect and maintain your car can go a long way in extending its service life. Make sure you check your tire pressure and the car’s fluid levels on a regular basis. Depending on the car, this should include oil, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid and transmission fluid. Top up fluids that are low and give your engine a onceover, keeping an eye out for anything that doesn’t look right such as frayed or worn belts, or loose connections.
  4. Get organized. If you don’t already have an organized system for filing service and repair records, create one. There’s nothing like trying to track down a receipt for a brake job when you’re trying to figure out when the last time you had them replaced was. Keeping everything in one spot makes tracking car maintenance quick and easy.
  5. Limit distractions. There are actually three different types of driver distractions: visual, manual and cognitive. A visual distraction is something that takes your eyes off the road while a manual distraction is something such as holding a phone and talking into it. Cognitive distractions are anything that takes your focus off of driving. Texting is so dangerous because it involves all three types of distractions. Make a commitment to avoid texting while driving and to limit all driver distractions.

 

Keep these New Year’s resolutions and your car is sure to thank you.

Why a Pre-Owned Vehicle is a Sound Investment

 

It’s long past time to replace your temperamental old clunker. Unfortunately, you currently lack the financial resources to invest in a brand new vehicle. Luckily, there’s a simple way to upgrade your car and save money in the process: buy used. As you’ll find, there are a number of advantages to buying your next vehicle pre-owned.

Dramatically Lower Sticker Prices

Since the vast majority of pre-owned vehicles boast lower price-tags than their fresh-off-the-assembly-line counterparts, buying used stands to save you a substantial sum of money. In addition, most single-owner used cars have been driven for well under 100,000 miles. Dedicated bargain hunters looking for a large inventory of used cars in DC would do well to visit Easterns Automotive Group.

Comprehensive Warranties

Used vehicles that have been driven for less than 100,000 miles are often still covered under their respective manufacturers’ parts and service warranties. Furthermore, many dealerships that specialize in pre-owned cars offer limited-time service warranties for every vehicle on their lots.

Despite the bad rap used cars often get, the truth of the matter is that most pre-owned vehicles are very reliable. If you’ve been kicking around the idea of buying a used vehicle, remember to consider the previously discussed perks.

Buying a Toyota Vehicle

 

If you are in the market for a vehicle, Toyota has a number of options available. The car company has made a name for itself based on the quality of its automobiles and is sure to leave you satisfied with your purchase. In the end, the type of Toyota that you end up with depends on your own personal preferences.

Buy Used

Some of the best deals for Toyotas are found when you purchase them used. This is because Toyota vehicles tend to last for a long time. There are countless Toyota cars on the road today that have eclipsed the 200,000 mile mark, which is something that most other car companies cannot boast. As a result, it is possible to find great value when buying a used Toyota, even when the car already has high mileage.

New Car Purchase

Of course, you can always choose to purchase a brand new Toyota. When you go this route, you can expect to have a reliable vehicle that will last as long as you want it to. Very few people are disappointed with their new Toyota cars and trucks because these automobiles perform at a very high level and look great while doing it.

Renault Fluence launched Worldwide

 

The Fluence will be the first model from the French car market for India and is expected to be priced between Rs. 12 – 14 lakh. est mules of the Fluence have been caught several times in and around Chennai where the company’s factory is located. The striking design of the Fluence makes it a radically different sedan as against other cars in the C segment available in the country.

The Fluence measures 4,618 mm in length, 1,813 mm in width, 1,488 mm in height and has 2,703 mm wheelbase. The Fluence has contemporary, yet simple interiors. We expect the top-end variant of the Fluence to feature air-conditioning for both front and rear passengers, rain sensor wipers, on-board computer, keyless start-stop, anti-whiplash headrests and airbags.

The car will come in both Petrol and Diesel variants, powered by a 2.0 litre and a 1.5 litre engine respectively. The 2.0 litre petrol engine generates 135 bhp of maximum power and 190 Nm of maximum torque while the 1.5 litre dCI diesel engine generates 106 bhp of maximum power and 240 Nm of maximum torque.

The petrol motor will likely be mated to a 6-speed automatic gear box while the diesel will come with a 6-speed manual gear box. This diesel motor is essentially the same engine that powers the Nissan Micra diesel and the Mahindra Verito diesel. However, the Fluence’s version of the 1.5 litre dCI has Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) and thus gets 42 bhp more power.

Based on various test drive reports, it has been found that the Fluence has precise steering feedback, suspension tuned for better ride quality, has less body roll and is highly stable on highway speeds.

In India, the Renault Fluence will compete with the likes of Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, Skoda Laura and Volkswagen Jetta. The Fluence will also be slightly bigger than its rivals, which might make it more appealing to ‘prestige conscious’ buyers, who prefer larger sedans.

But, since the dealerships, after sales service quality are yet to be known, the French car maker has to put in efforts for brand building. Also read: Renault upcoming lanuches

Renault has plans to launch 5 models in India within the next 18 months. The models consist of the Fluence, Duster, Koleos, a small car (Clio) and a sedan. Initially, the company plans to open 14 sales outlets in 12 important cities of the country. By December 2011, Renault India plans to cover 30 cities by opening 40 outlets in total.
