A very bad year for VW

Volkwagen looks to rebound in 2017

Brighter Days Ahead

To say 2015 was a year to forget for VW is an understatement. Yet, like most car companies (like most for-profit businesses) hopping back on the proverbial saddle is basically the only option. Bankruptcy in another, but things aren’t that dire …

First quarter 2016 sales are down 13% so VW’s bold proclamation of growing U.S. sales comes at an opportune moment. Digging deeper however it would behoove VW to recognize some key differences between the U.S. and European consumer. The European driver in general is looking more for practicality. Gas prices are high, streets are narrow, and parking is sparse. The Passat for example is a nice choice but when the U.S. consumer thinks “German engineering” visions of Audi come to mind, not practicality wrapped up in a Passat.

The larger Volkswagen Group sells passenger cars under the Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Audi, Porsche, SEAT, Skoda and VW brands. There is [...]

GM Motors Design Chief Retires

General Motors design chief Ed Welburn set to retire

We bid adieu …

Parting General Motors design chief Ed Welburn was a true pioneer in the auto game. A Philadelphia native, Welburn attended Howard University and entered GM at the rip young age of 21. He had studied sculpture and product design at Howard’s College of Fine Arts and was lauded by many to be a design genius. Probably most impressive was his ability to combine such a creative talent with managerial and operational prowess. One doesn’t come across both too often.

Welburn was the first African American to lead GM when he was promoted in 2003. Welburn is internally known in GM for having united the “design team” at a global level, supervising a team of 2,500 people who design GM cars worldwide. Over his tenure Welburn worked on the Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Camaro, Chevrolet Malibu, Cadillac CTS and the Buick Enclave. More recent concepts spearheaded by the parting chief were the [...]

Uber vs. BMW ReachNow

Car Sharing Service

Keen BMW Marketing – Share and Spread the Word

ReachNow is BMW’s newly launched car sharing service which will hit the road in Seattle and branch out from there. The purpose – share and spread the word. BMW is no stranger to this concept as their DriveNow program has been operative in various European cities for some time now. DriveNow was actually in play in San Francisco but onerous parking issues (typical for the “Little Apple”) laid waste to the popular program.

So how does this work? Quite simple, a BMW 3-Series (a Mini or the BMW i3 electric car) is offered on a pay-per-use driving basis. Cars are available at pre-assigned street corners and no matter whether you need it for an hour or a 3-day weekend, the Seattle BMW fleet will number 370 cars which will be dispersed throughout the city.

Sound like Uber but “sans-driver?” Well, yes, but as Uber has successfully [...]

Top reasons why Top Gear resonates

The rumored start date was May 8, 2016, but Top Gear fanatics should tamper their excitement as the BBC has not confirmed this as such. Whatever the date, the introduction of Matt LeBlanc has folks buzzing alongside ex-Formula 1 boss Eddie Jordan, German racing driver Sabine Schmitz, YouTube star Chris Harris and Rory Reid, the journalist who scored a spot through the public auditions that culminated last year.

But what makes this show resonate? First and foremost, storytelling. The show has always had a unique, irreverent way of narrating a story while at the same time being informative. A jaw-dropping 350 million viewers per week, worldwide, speaks to its attraction.

Second, Top Gear and the BBC are funded by British taxpayers. This means that hosts and guests can basically say whatever they want as retribution from sponsors is … zero. Jay Leno actually turned down NBC’s Top Gear spinoff [...]

Quality cars for tight budgets

Good cars on the cheap

Quality matches for tight budgets

Tight budgets are just that, tight. Yet cars and car quality continues to improve year by year and as such the options for nice buys at cheap prices also continues to expand. Today, $5,000 can yield some quality purchases. So what are some examples you might ask …

Take for instance the Mazda MX-5 Miata. If you’re looking for a sports car for under $5,000, this zippy roadster is hard to beat. It’s lightweight, handles great and the 130-140 horsepower run through a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine will keep you happily churning through whatever windy canyon road you choose to spread her wings. Good options are the editions from 1996 to 2004.

Next up is the tried and true, Toyota Camry. Reliability, reliability, reliability. Did I mention this car is reliable? It’s bulletproof for lack of a better term, so much so that you will find an abundance of Camrys over [...]

Cheap gas is here again

For those over 35 these seemingly predictable cycles of cheap, moderate and pricey gas have been part of our consciousness for our entire driving lives. Steering clear of politics, the price of gas like many commodities is cyclical in nature and tied in to a number of other economic, social and political variables. We whine when it’s expensive, exhale when it’s moderate, and ironically say very little when it’s cheap again.

Well ladies and gentlemen, it’s cheap again and this blog is going to shout it from our virtual rooftop. During the first three months of this year we Americans paid our cheapest gas in 12 years. Twelve years! Taking us as a collective whole, we dropped our gas bill by a jaw-dropping $10 billion which equates to roughly $45 per driver. During the first quarter of 2016 the average national cost hovered around $1.86 per gallon. Forecasters communicate there [...]

Cheap Gas vs. Expensive Gas. Is there a difference?

What kind of gas should you get for your vehicle

I’ll start off immediately by giving you the spoiler: Yes, there is a difference.

Now I’ll spoil the spoiler by saying: Even so… it doesn’t matter.

Let me explain.

If you’ve been driving across town to the “nice” gas station because you’re afraid of what the cheaper product might do to your car, there is no need to continue.

Generic gas is essentially the same as the name-brand gases like Chevron and Mobil.

Each company receives it’s gas from the same supply lines. This means that there is absolutely no difference in the gas as it gets pumped into those trucks. The only difference between the products is that name-brand stations may put extra engine-cleaning additives in their gas. And typically this is as small as one gallon of additive per tanker.

What does that mean? It means you can feel very comfortable knowing that generic gas won’t harm your engine, and expensive gas won’t [...]

Is It Time For New Tires?

It doesn’t matter if you’re a racecar driver or a soccer mom, worn-out tires may be more dangerous than you think!  It’s important to always keep an eye on your tires and look for signs of wear and tear.  And even though the price of replacing your tires entices you to keep driving until they’re completely bald, it’s critical for your safety to never push the limits too far. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), tire failure causes around 11,000 car crashes each year, and they recommend that you perform a quick check on your tires at least once a month.

Here’s what you’ll what to watch out for:

Bulges, gouges, or cracks

Tires and tire walls (the side of the tire) should be smooth and even.  If it looks unusual, it probably is.  This is low [...]
