Previous article we teach you how to save money in terms of maintenance, but today is different, is not for the maintenance of some of the provinces to supplement and analysis. Car on and everyone else, needs some maintenance in order to maintain normal operation, some maintenance can save, because it is not necessary, and some maintenance can not be saved. If only to save money on car maintenance maintenance compromised, it will be some more harm than good.

Interesting fact in this article... recalls have outnumbered vehicles sold in the past few years... Wow. But it is also a fact that the focus on safety and being proactive is part of that. Interesting article.

Yokohama tyres

Yokohama tyres are one of the most forward thinking tyre

companies in the World. One of the ways that the company will show of its prowess will be to exhibit through a stand at the Tokyo Motor Show.

The company will demonstrate to car drivers on how it strives to create a better tyre grip on all its tyre products and all its tyre categories. Yokohama have also been striving and succeeding in the development of lighter fuel efficient tyres by the use of new compounds combined with new materials, such as the addition of “orange oil”. Yes orange oil! Yokohama has been using this as an alternative to petroleum based oils for over 20 years. The first Yokohama tyres to use this were in a compound used for racing car tyre slicks(these are tyres that have no tread, for use on dry race circuits to give more grip and for a softer compound), the orange oil helps the tyre to become sticky when they get heated up to give more traction.

More reading… http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/alternative-fuel/news/the-science-behind-yokohamas-orange-oil-tires-8146348

Yokohama is also developing a new tyre that will grip on ice, without the help of studs, very useful in the very cold countries that normally have to rely on studded tyres. The booth will be well worth visiting and will include a concept car that is an electric car, to show off some of the new technologies, including its own super light tyres known as “fin tyres” that reduce air drag and help control the cars air drag by reducing it.

Many shops come off a busy summer, and the shop begins to slow down. Staff begin to relax and accept the slow-down as a blessing. The reality is that business needs to maintain the same or higher pace than the summer months. So, the shop must prepare and market to sustain business.

Self driving cars

Hi it must be a strange feeling to get into a car that can steer and drive to its destination un-aided by the driver. I must be getting old ,because I can’t see for the life in me what these cars are going to gain.

If that’s what people want why on earth don’t they stick to the driver- less train systems that we see in many countries these days? I would much prefer to sit on a train high up above the busy traffic “THAN IN A DRIVER-LESS CAR”. Also modern technology is good, but it is not perfect. I recently visited France and had to turn off the motorway because it was blocked by an accident, a large truck had toppled over, completely blocking the two lane motorway.

We had to turn off so I switched on my satellite navigation system, hoping to pick the motorway up further North. I keyed in Calais further North and the sat/nav kindly to me to three junctions South of the junction that I had to turn off on? It then came up with a server problem message, which rendered it useless?.

So I have my doubts about the technology used in these cars.

Here is a good snippet from the Popular Mechanics web-site about the strange sensation that their driver experienced when first handling one of these cars,

“As soon as I hit the small black lane-centre button, I can feel the wheel stiffen in my hands. Suddenly the light bar atop it begins to glow a soft green, signalling that the car has taken over the task of steering. I had already surrendered control of the acceleration and braking to the vehicle's adaptive cruise control, and now with my feet flat on the floor, I slowly un-wrap my fingers and release the wheel. Sitting in the passenger seat is Jeremy Salinger, who works on General Motors' semiautonomous car program. He's seen the car do this dozens, possibly hundreds, of times, but, if only to reassure me, he states the obvious: "The car is in control now."… http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/news/industry/the-12-most-important-questions-about-self-driving-cars-16016418

His final comment is that” it felt like a ghost was driving the car”
