DO YOU TRUST YOUR MECHANIC?

 

What it all boils down to is trust. You have to trust a repair facility to charge you fairly for the work they do, to actually do the work for which you are being charged, to accurately diagnose and repair your car, and to complete the repairs in a reasonable amount of time. To avoid being scammed, overcharged or ripped-off, you need to find a repair facility you can trust.

Don't wait until your car is broken to start looking for a reputable repair facility. Do your looking ahead of time and establish a working relationship with one or more repair facilities by having them do your basic maintenanc... Read more

ENGINE - CHECK YOUR BELTS

CHECK YOUR BELTS

At the front of your engine there will be a series of rubber drive belts that loop around various pulleys, driving everything from the alternator to the a/c compressor. Rubber perishes, more so in extreme conditions like those found in an operating engine bay. Get your timing belt and accessory drive belt checked every 25,000 miles, preferably replacing it every 50,000 miles

2017 Infiniti Q30

2017 Infiniti Q30 First Drive

Audi and BMW have owned the premium C-segment for almost a decade now thanks to the A3 and the 1 Series (and 2 Series). Benz's A-Class has become less of a retiree's option and has spawned a popular (if not particularly good) sedan (the CLA) and a crossover (GLA). Down in the lower-class decks, machinery from Subaru is punching well above its weight, while Volkswagen's Golf owns the market in Europe.

This all left perennial premium pretenders like Lexus and Infiniti with a problem: how to convince buyers their C-segment machinery was genuinely premium if they were based off a volume-sellin... Read more

Lexus LC 500

Lexus LC 500 coming  2016

 

Believe it or not, it's been nearly four years since we first saw the Lexus LF-LC Concept. Its swoopy style and spindle grille kicked off a big design revolution for Lexus, and we saw a number of LF-LC design elements work their way onto production cars. But now, rumor has it a full-on production version will see the light of day, and soon.

Motoring.com.au says the LC 500 coupe will show its face at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show in January, and we have little reason to doubt this. In fact, it's kind of been a long time coming. The LC was reportedly approved for production in 2... Read more

Porsche turns up boost on 911

Porsche turns up boost on 911 range with new Turbo and Turbo S

 


You didn't honestly think Porsche would stop with just a turbocharged Carrera and Carrera S, did you? No, that'd be silly. Of course Stuttgart had to follow up those two smash hits with a new Turbo and Turbo S. Naturally, both cars build on the 370-horsepower Carrera and 420-horsepower C2S.

The base Turbo offers 540 horsepower and starts at $160,195, while the Turbo S packs 580 horsepower and demands an extra $28,900. Adding a folding fabric top to either model will drive the cost of entry up by $12,300, regardless of o... Read more

AC COMPRESSOR PROBLEMS, PRICE AND BRANDS

AC COMPRESSOR PROBLEMS, PRICE AND BRANDS

AC Compressor troubleshooting
The air conditioning compressor is one of those parts of the car that are typically used for long hours and typically gets a lot of usage. It has been seen that AC compressors are generally reliable and don't fail easily. 
If it does, it is often because of some other reasons. The point is, never replace a compressor in a hurry without detecting the full problem. Otherwise it is quite likely that the new one will also fail. 


Why AC Compressors fail

Three Car Safety Tips for Toddlers

With a toddler on board, even a quick trip to the store can sometimes seem like a hairy rollercoaster ride. Keep your pint-size passengers protected and secure on the road with these tips:
