Delta Auto Protect NBC News Most Common Auto Repairs

This blog has touched frequently on innovation, tech industry trends, and most recently, autonomous cars. It’s the future, we’re moving in that direction. The hurdles are considerable, but at this stage it is more regulatory/safety related rather than technological. Following this train of thought, what about car insurers? What is in store for them being that a “computer” over a human will be driving the vehicle they are insuring?

A preeminent mind has weighed in and we’re all ears … elephant ears! When Warren Buffet speaks, this blog listens. The esteemed investor made his way to CNBC’s Squawk Box earlier this month and boldly pronounced that autonomous vehicles will topple car insurers. Intuitively this sticks – safer cars would equate to less accidents which equates to less need for insurance. Yet Buffet and Bill Gates now believe we have at least another 15 years before any of the significant changes in autonomous driving will be [...]

You have aerodynamic drag. Something you would cringe at coming from your physician’s mouth. Luckily for us aerodynamic drag is not a “human” condition, but one nonetheless that we create with none other than … roof racks!

That’s right, those dreaded two words that our grandparents cautioned us of – roof racks. If you’re like any other red-blooded American the roof rack is a nice complement to your automobile. Some look very cool so for aesthetic reasons folks will definitely opt for them. For others, they are obviously of use hauling bicycles, cargo, outdoor toys, etc. Yet, what if I told you that roof racks consumed alone 100 million gallons of fuel last year in the U.S. This isn’t a hypothetical situation, in fact I am telling you this. Better put, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is telling you this. The aerodynamic drag roof racks cause can reduce fuel economy from 0 to 25 percent [...]

Used Cars Re-Sale Tips and Tricks

Get the most for your used auto

The used car market is just that … used cars. Cars that have been used, some for many years, by folks that you don’t know, nor in many cases, would want to know. It’s actually quite amazing that many of us purchase these automobiles with such history not ever having known the details. But enough of that, used cars are great and moving on from your used car can be a wonderful step as well. So on to pricing, what exactly affects the resale value of your car …

Off the bat, mileage. More equals less resale value. Pretty straightforward but something to keep in mind if the plan is to sell 2-4 years down the line. Keeping that mileage on the lower end (comparative to the year of the car) will yield dividends.

Physical wear and tear is also another no-brainer, but there are some items here that are not typically thought of. One [...]

Interiors worth blogging about

Granted, the first thing you saw before you purchased that shiny new (or used, but well-maintained) car was its exterior. Obviously between the interior and exterior, the exterior tends to be spoken about, reviewed about, and harshly critiqued at times about at a much greater rate than the interior. But the irony behind (literally behind the wheel) of this reality is you are spending 99.9% of your time peering and experiencing the interior of your car compared to the exterior! Perhaps the narcissist in us still values the opinions of others though …

With that said, here are ten “banging” interiors that will leave you pleased and perhaps prompt you to invite others to relish as well. First up, the Cadillac XT5. Semi-Aniline leather plus a microsuede headliner sets this Cadillac apart. Lush is a word that springs to mind.

The Chevrolet Camaro SS features a racing design with dual colored [...]

Texting while (hopefully not) driving

Ever since smart-phones took absolute control over our lives texting has been the preferred method to communicate to loved ones, not so loved ones, or your kid’s school to let them know you’re running late again to pick up the little guy. It is ever-present and especially when driving, a definite risk to everyone’s safety.

Legislation prompted by targeted lobbying efforts from Distracted Operators Risk Casualties (DORCs) is bring this law to the table. The group’s founder, Ben Lieberman, tragically lost his son to a driver who was distracted in 2011. The legislation is being considered by the New York Senate Transportation Committee at the moment and is quite novel in its application.

Known as the “textalyzer” law, a device, similar to a breathalyzer to detect for alcohol, has been developed to subsequently determine from a driver’s cell phone where the person was texting or using the device when [...]

A true beast of a ride

The Mercedes G500 4x4

A true beast of a ride

The word “beast” gets thrown around lightly nowadays. So and so is a beast on the field, that’s a beast of hamburger, he’s a beast of an actor, what a beast of a car. We’ve heard the latter quite frequently in the auto industry, but with that said, this is a beast of a car!

The Mercedes G500 4×4 is already on the streets of Germany and word is it will be making its arrival to an American street, avenue, freeway or possible your garage in the near future. We can’t wait as a quick google search will reveal just what makes this automobile so appealing from a strict visual standpoint. It has the potential to be the biggest head-turner on the street, hands-down.

So what justifies “beast” being appropriated to such an automobile? In short, this [...]

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 [...]
