Car Maintanance Tips

Hi guys...Happy to meet you again with an interesting article about the car maintanance...everyone in the world are having the dream to buy a car...before buying a car everybody want to know how to maintain the car...due to the reduction in the cars price everyone gonna buy is a list of the various auto maintanance tips as follows:
  • Check the engine oil at regular intervals: The performance of the car engine is largely dependent upon the engine oil. The decrease in the level of engine oil is usually shown by an indicator. For effective performance of the engine it is an absolute necessity that you keep on changing the engine oil at regular intervals. It is advisable that you check the engine oil level at an interval of 10 to 15 days.
  • Check the working of the car brakes: The braking system of the cars are quite important in the perspective of security. You must keep on looking into a number of factors like whether the brake pedal is too soft to press or whether it makes a squeaking noise. Often it is seen that brakes with low brake fluids tend to become soft. The accumulation of dust on the car breaks also results in the production of abnormal sounds coming from the brakes while they are pressed. If on pressing the brakes your car pulls on to a side then there may be a problem with the adjustment of the brake clearance.
  • Regularly keep on checking the electrical system of the car: The electrical system of the car is one of the inherent parts of the car that is regularly needed to be checked to ensure hassle free driving and high level performance.
  • Check the condition of the tires Always make it sure that the tires of your car are filled with recommended air pressure. Both low and high pressure will hamper smooth driving.

    Apart from these you should also do regular servicing of your car for its efficient performance.Thank you for seeing this post...please fill your comments in the cbox...happy for your visit...

    Honda Puyo

    Hi very glad to meet you again in the series of latest green cars available in the we are going to see about the features of the car Honda Puyo....its one of the hydrogen powered car...The Honda Puyo fuel cell concept car is being unveiled at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. The term "Puyo" Honda says is a Japanese onomatopoeia that describes what one feels when touching the car's soft body and is a description for floating objects. For those who are not English literature majors and don't know what an onomatopoeia is, it is a word that imitates a sound, such as quack, vroom or in the case of Mazda, zoom zoom.

    The Honda Puyo is supposed to be a happy little device like an iPod iDog that is to give people a warm and friendly feeling. The idea behind the Honda Puyo is to have a personable design that also yields maximum space to passengers in its box-like interior. Honda says the Puyo uses "gel body" that promotes safety, presumably to pedestrians though it is unclear who the walking crash test dummies were who volunteered for this experiment. Whatever the silicone body bumps into, it must be a cushier blow that from a car made of steel and aluminum.

    The Honda Puyo body is luminescent, which helps drivers achieve the correct operating position. The luminescent body also informs the drivers about the operating condition of the vehicle. If the Honda Puyo is happy and fully operational, for instance, it may glow green to convey this message to passengers and driver, which is poetically apropos for such a green vehicle. This may also help other drivers to avoid crashing into the Honda Puyo at night.

    The interior of the Honda Puyo has a silky feel and a joystick (that replaces the steering wheel). The sensual nature of this hydrogen fuel cell car also comes with a sense of transparency from its panoramic windows and intuitive operation. One of the coolest features of the Honda Puyo, however, is that the cabin rotates 360-degrees so the car doesn't have to go in reverse.

    The soft cloth dashboard also rises up to greet the passengers when the car is started. The Honda Puyo also has an instrument panel monitor and luminous fluid meters. Even though the Honda Puyo is a fun little oddity that will most likely never see the light of a showroom floor, it also shows the company's outside-the-box thinking for this boxy little car. Booya to Puyo for its creative quirkiness!Thank for seeing this post...Happy for your visit...Please fill your comments in the cbox...

    Ford Explorer FCV

    Hi the series of latest green car, here comes the Ford Explorer you guys all well known about the Ford cars, lets see the features of the car...The Ford Explorer FCV SUV, first unveiled at the Greater Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2006, shows Ford's commitment in pursuing a line of hydrogen-powered vehicles. The other hydrogen-powered car currently in the automaker's lineup is the Ford focus SUV of which approximately 30 have been rolled out as fleet and demonstration vehicles worldwide and logged more than 300,000 test miles.


    While the Ford Focus FCV has a driving range of 150 - 200 miles per tank of hydrogen gas, the Ford Explorer Fuel Cell SUV boasts an impressive 350 miles per tank. The center-mounted hydrogen tank on the Ford Explorer Fuel Cell is placed where the 6-speed automatic transmission would normal go on the standard production version of the Ford Explorer.

    Ford is claiming that the Explorer Fuel Cell has a driving range of 350 miles and that this exceeds any other fuel cell vehicle shown to date. Ford will need to tell this to their Japanese friends, however, as the Honda FCX also makes the same claim.

    The Ford Explorer FCV was built in cooperation with the U. S. Department of Energy, who continues to analyze the feasibility of hydrogen vehicles. The Ford Explorer Fuel Cell is a 6-passenger vehicle and has already undergone 17,000 miles of road testing including setting a record of 1,556 miles traveled in a 24-hour period.

    As an electric all-wheel-drive vehicle, the Ford Explorer FCV joins the ranks of Ford's other green vehicles such as the Ford Escape Hybrid SUV and Mercury Mariner Hybrid SUV in delivering a sorely needed alternative to the group of low gas mileage, high emissions SUVs currently on the market.Thank you for seeing this post...Happy for your visit...Please fill your comments in the cbox...

    Chrysler ecoVoyager

    Hi to all...Happy to meet you again in the series of latest green car this article we are going to see about the features of the car Chrysler ecoVoyager...The Chrysler ecoVoyager fuel cell concept vehicle was unveiled at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show on January 14. The four-passenger, four-door hydrogen concept Chrysler ecoVoyager embodies bold design coupled with the latest advances in fuel cell and hybrid technologies.

    The ecology-minded zero emissions ecoVoyager uses a 45 kw fuel cell stack and 268 hp (200 kw) electric motor plus "Range-extended Electric Vehicle technology" to deliver the vehicle 300 miles before refueling. According to Chrysler, the ecoVoyager is able to travel the first 40 miles on the 16 kw lithium-ion battery pack alone before needing an assist from the fuel cell stack and 10,000 psi hydrogen tanks.

    The Chrysler ecoVoyager also uses regenerative braking to recharge the battery pack that is situated, along with the fuel cell powertrain, below in the skateboard chassis design. This design leaves a roomy interior for driver and passengers alike.

    The Chrysler ecoVoyager is no wuss, either as it can motivate from 0 - 60 mph less than 8 seconds with a top speed of 115 mph. Chrysler is also boasting that the ecoVoyager can run the quarter mile in just 12.9 seconds, but seeing is believing on this statistic, so we'll just have to wait and see if the automaker can put its money where its mouth is at.

    The Chrysler ecoVoyager features panoramic glass for increased visibility and includes a twin sunroof. The engineers of the Chrysler ecoVoyager moved the front wheels forward in the concept car to increase the passenger legroom.

    The interior features gauges the driver can see over the steering wheel rather than through it, three camera images of the world outside the vehicle, and the rear seat passengers can enjoy a movie without disturbing the driver because of direct sound technology. Each of the four bucket seats in the ecoVoyager is contoured for personalized comfort.

    The Chrysler ecoVoyager is just as the name sounds. It's a glimpse of an ecologically-minded car for family road trips and other adventures in the future.Thank you for seeing this post...Happy for your visit...please fill your comments in the cbox...

    Ford Airsteam concept

    Hi the series of green cars,here comes Ford's airsteam concept...due to the oil price hike in the worlds market, we are in need to find for the alternative sources to drive the engines...due to that only, airsteam concept of Ford arrives...lets see the features of the car...The Ford Airstream Concept is a plug-in electric hybrid hydrogen fuel cell vehicle that turns silver into green. With a combined city / highway gas mileage of 41 mpg, the Ford Airstream combines the best of two iconic companies in a crossover vehicle meant to travel the open road.

    Ford Airstream Concept

    The Ford Airstream Concept was built with a HySeries Drive system that runs on electricity only from its 336-volt lithium-ion battery pack for the first 25 miles. After that, the hydrogen fuel cell recharges the battery pack, which in turns delivers power to the electric motors for an additional 280 miles, making the vehicle's total range 305 miles - not bad for leading edge combined technology.

    The Ford Airstream's HySeries Drive technology was partially funded by the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Canadian company Ballard supplied the fuel cell. This is not the first round of development for the HySeries Drive, either, as Ford already has a similar system installed in a Ford Edge prototype that is undergoing a series of test drives. The Ballard fuel cell is smaller, half the price of previous fuel cells and has no problem starting in colder temperatures.

    With the crossover vehicle segment expected to hit 3 million units by 2010, Ford decided collaborate with Airstream, a leader since the 1930s in recreational vehicles and the open road travel industry. The design of the Ford Airstream Concept captures the sense of travel and adventure of spacecraft and aircraft design that Airstream founder, Wallace Merle Byam tried to instill since he survived the Great Stock Market Crash of 1929 and started selling his travel trailers full-time in 1930. The fuselage of the Ford Airstream Concept is made with special reflective silver paint and 12 ceremonial rivets.

    While the outside of the Ford Airstream is an amalgamation of two real world travel icons, the inside design is based upon Stanley Kubrick's movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Passengers ease into the asymmetrical doors of the Ford Airstream, which also has a hatchback in the rear to complete the crossover concept.

    The rear setting area of the Ford Airstream has a lounge atmosphere, decked out in cosmic red and white with a cocoon feel. The focal point in the back is a 360-degree screen for entertainment, games or live camera feed. The screen also offers ambient mood settings such as a virtual fire or a lava lamp.

    Upfront, the driver and passenger can both swivel in captain's chairs and the passenger can watch DVD's or post mobile blogs. The driver in the Ford Airstream Concept can view a floating instrument panel with touch sensitive controls that offers all of the important information necessary when driving the vehicle. The Sharp dual-view screen centrally mounted provides the driver with a camera view and secondary information about the vehicle's operation.

    Now, imagine a few years down the pike, a cross-country road trip, complete with caffeine and nicotine driving, with the Ford Airstream pulling a "silver bullet" behind and no emissions coming out the tailpipe.Thank for seeing this post...happy for your visit...please fill your comments in the cbox....

    BMW Hydrogen 7

    Hi guys all well known about the oil price hike in the world market...due to this oil price hike, there is a big demand for the petrol and diesel in India for the last one month...the remedy for this is to use the hydrogen or air as fuel to run the vehicles...this idea is introduced in to the market...due to that hydrogen powered cars are now available in the the series of the hydrogen powered cars here comesBMW Hydrogen 7 luxury car...lets see the features of the car...The BMW Hydrogen 7 luxury automobile is set to hit the streets as a lease in April 2007, according to the BMW Group. In a race with Mazda to bring the first commercial hydrogen cars to market, BMW will have taken the lead in introducing its first 7-Series production hydrogen vehicles in both the USA and Germany.

    Unlike other hydrogen cars, which are powered by fuel cells, the Hydrogen 7 is powered by a 12-cylinder internal combustion engine (ICE). The BMW Hydrogen 7 also generates 260 hp, accelerates from 0 - 60 mph in just 9.4 seconds and runs on liquid hydrogen fuel instead of compressed hydrogen as is typical for fuel cell vehicles. The vehicle's top speed is electronically limited to 143 mph.

    The BMW Hydrogen 7 is a dual-fuel vehicle capable of running on either hydrogen or gasoline with just the press of a button on the steering wheel. Engine torque and performance remain the same when switching between the two modes. If either tank on the BMW Hydrogen 7 runs out of fuel the onboard controller automatically switches the vehicle to the other tank.

    The combined cruising range for the BMW Hydrogen 7 is around 425 miles with the gasoline tank (16.3 gal) contributing 300 miles and the hydrogen tank (17.6 lb) contributing 125 miles. Because the BMW Hydrogen 7 has dual-fuel capabilities, it can roll out before the hydrogen infrastructure is in place.

    The BMW Hydrogen 7 is a 4-seater 7-Series automobile based upon the BMW 760i with many additional features. Some of the new features include Park Distance Control, mirrors with automatic anti-dazzle and Soft Close Automatic for the doors.

    The BMW 12-cylinder dual-fuel hydrogen-gasoline internal combustion engine provides 260 hp and helps the Hydrogen 7 luxury automobile achieve a total range of over 425 miles.

    The BMW Hydrogen 7 has undergone the regular product development process, which means when the cars are rolled out, they will not be individually hand-built machines as are most concept hydrogen cars. Rather, the Hydrogen 7 will roll off the production line in limited quantities as lease vehicles in both the USA and Germany.

    In Munich, the first public hydrogen fueling station is being built and will open in 2007, coinciding with the release of the BMW Hydrogen 7. Lessees of the BMW Hydrogen 7 will also be able to fuel up in Berlin, which has two liquid hydrogen fueling stations built as part of the Clean Air Partnership program. In the U. S., liquid hydrogen fueling stations are currently stationed in Washington D. C. and Oxnard, California plus there are several more additional mobile units that can also provide liquid hydrogen as needed.Thank you for seeing this post...happy for your visit...please fill your comments in the cbox...

    How to estimate Cars Mileage

    Hi to all car lovers... Every one knows about the oil price hike in the order to tackle this problem we need a car which gives us high mileage...already we are having the car which gives us 17.6 km/litre mileage...shall i need to tell the name of the car? itz Maruthi Suzuki some tips for you to How to estimate car's mileage and to maintain..."What is my car's mileage?" is a question that every car owner has on the brain, regardless of financial status or number of cars owned. When it comes to a car's mileage, the owner is curious. Estimating your car's mileage/fuel economy is simple if you know how to go about it. Even if you really don't care about your car's mileage, we suggest you estimate your car's mileage once in a while; it is a good indicator of your car's health. If your car's fuel consumption is considerably higher than normal, you can safely assume that all is not right with the engine and it might spell trouble for you in the near future. Another point of consideration is the environment - cars with bad fuel efficiency tend to pollute the environment more, and while we aren’t exactly tree-huggers, we believe that you shouldn’t harm the environment willfully.

    Here is a simple way of estimating a car's mileage.


    1. Go to the filling station and fill the fuel tank completely. Completely means up to the brim!
    2. As soon as you enter your car, note the odometer reading (kilometers done) before starting the engine. This reading is the starting point. If you have a tripmeter or two, you can reset it to read ‘zero.’
    3. Use your car as you usually do.
    4. Once your fuel gauge indicates a half- or quarter-full tank, visit a nearby filling station, preferably the same one you tanked up at the last time. This will help reduce the error.
    5. Note down the quantity of fuel it takes to fill the tank up to the brim.
    6. Note odometer reading once again. This is the end point.
    7. Now calculate average/mileage/fuel economy of your car as the difference between the starting and end points in km divided by the amount of fuel required to fill the tank up at the end point, in litres, OR average fuel consumption = (end point – starting point) / Fuel quantity
    8. Alternatively, divide the tripmeter’s reading by the number of litres of fuel required to top up the second time.

    Note: You can carry out the same procedure once with the air-con on and a second time with it off, to calculate the effect the air-conditioner has on your car’s fuel consumption..Thank you for seeing this post...fill your comments in the cbox...happy for your visit...

    Smart for two

    Hi guys...Happy to meet you guys with an interesting the series of latest cars,here comes smart cars...this is a small car only two can travel...The Smart Fortwo is an all-new entry in the U.S. car market. At less than nine feet long, it is the smallest car sold in the United States. As its name suggests, it is a two-seater. It comes in coupe and convertible versions, both two-door models. It's powered by a tiny 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, and the transmission is a five-speed automated manual. The Smart Fortwo is rear-wheel drive. Meant for use in the city, it's capable of speeds of up to 90 mph.

    The first-generation Smart Fortwo has been available in Europe since 1998. Now in its second generation, the Fortwo is finally available in the United States as a 2008 model. The car is produced by the Mercedes Car Group and sold through stand-alone Smart dealerships and Mercedes Benz dealers in the U.S. It is imported by Smart USA Distributor LLC, which is a division of Roger Penske's Penske Automotive Group. Smart USA markets its name in fashionable lower case: smart fortwo.

    The Fortwo is best used as a city car. It's meant to get drivers from A to B without frills. Its small size makes it easy to park and allows it to easily dart in and out of traffic. With fuel mileage of 33 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway, the Smart car will appeal to commuters who make short trips by themselves. Its fuel economy numbers aren't as good as the Toyota Prius or Honda Civic Hybrid, but they're better than any other economy car.

    At the same time, it has its compromises. Its small engine wants for power, the transmission shifts awkwardly, the ride is busy, and it lacks a rear seat and cargo carrying capacity.

    On the inside, the Fortwo has a spartan cabin dominated by economy-grade plastics. It is surprisingly roomy, with enough head clearance and leg room for very tall passengers. Shoulder room, however, will be tight for two large occupants. Cubby storage is minimal.

    The rear of the Smart Fortwo cabin is an open hatch area. There isn't as much room as in most trunks and certainly not as much as what you'll find in a compact hatchback, but it has enough space for a trip to the grocery store.

    Officials from Smart say the Fortwo will have the lowest cost of ownership of any car in the U.S. That's yet to be proven, but it should certainly be one of the least expensive cars to own and operate.

    Although pricing for the base Pure model starts at $11,590, most customers will opt for the $13,590 Passion model that has a radio and air conditioning. We're certainly passionate about those two features. But the Passion puts the Fortwo in the price league of larger, roomier subcompacts that can carry more passengers.

    The Fortwo isn't the best car for drivers who need an all-around vehicle, but it is a good choice for city dwellers or as a second vehicle to run errands.Thank you seeing this post..Happy for your visit...please fill your comments in the cbox...

    Subaru B9 Tribeca

    Hi to all...happy to meet you again about the interesting article...lets see about the features of the car...TriBeCa is a trendy, upscale neighborhood between New York's Soho and Lower Manhattan districts. It isn't cheap real estate. Nor is the Subaru B9 Tribeca cheap transportation. Tribeca is a mid-size SUV with optional seating for seven. Its overall dimensions put it in the same class as the Toyota Highlander and Nissan Murano; it's nearly as big as a Ford Explorer. Properly equipped, the Tribeca can tow up to 3500 pounds. Tribeca is fully competitive in this class, especially given its lengthy list of standard features.

    Subaru is becoming a premium brand. It isn't Mercedes Benz or BMW nor does it intend to be, but the technology underneath, the stuff you can't see, is cutting edge, giving drivers the latest in all-weather safety and performance. Last year, Tribeca earned the highest possible rating in NHTSA federal crash tests, with five stars in the frontal and side-impact tests for both the driver and front-seat passenger; and a four-star rating in the tests for rollover resistance. (No SUV to date has earned five stars in the rollover test

    For 2007, Subaru has built more safety into every Tribeca, adding a rollover sensor that automatically activates the seatbelt pre-tensioners and deploys the standard side-curtain airbags. To help avoid accidents, Brake Assist joins Tribeca's extensive array of dynamic handling technology, which already included four-channel anti-lock brakes, Vehicle Dynamics Control and four-wheel traction control. An ultrasonic reverse-parking assist is now available on all models; and models with navigation now come with a backup camera.

    Also for 2007, Tribeca's front and rear suspensions have been revised to deliver a smoother ride. All models are now pre-wired for XM Satellite Radio, and the auxiliary jack for connecting iPods and other MP3 units has been relocated to the center console. Top-of-the-line Limited models add a two-position memory sensor for the front seats. A new remote starter option allows the owner to start the vehicle from up to 800 feet away. A window-shade-type retractable rear cargo cover is now available as well.

    In case you haven't noticed, all Subaru models are somewhat pricey, but we think they offer a lot of value in terms of technology, handling, foul-weather capability and dependability. And Tribeca is no exception. Extensive mileage in Northern California revealed the Tribeca to be a joy to drive, comfortable and practical. In short, we'd list it as a buy. It's comparable to the Highlander and Murano, and that's high praise indeed.Thank you seeing this post...happy for your visit...please fill your comments in the cbox....

    Scion TC

    Hi Dudes...happy to see you again in the latest car reviews...lets see the features of the car..The Scion TC has been subtly restyled inside and out for 2008. Apple iPod connectivity comes standard along with a Pioneer subwoofer. And navigation is now available.

    The Scion tC is an affordably priced but thoroughly practical and well-equipped sport coupe. It benefits from Toyota's attention to quality, durability and reliability. The body panels fit tight and straight, and quality construction is evident. Interior materials are first-rate, and show attention to detail. The bucket seats are comfortable and there's enough room to suit tall drivers. A 160-watt stereo is standard.

    The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine generates 161 horsepower and, with the optional automatic transmission, gets an EPA-rated 29 miles per gallon on the highway. It is quiet, smooth, and plenty powerful. Its steering, ride quality and handling are commendable. Its four-wheel disc brakes are powerful, and ABS and Electronic Brake-force Distribution come standard. A full array of airbags is available to enhance safety.

    The Scion nameplate may represent Toyota's next-generation future, but in some ways the Scion TC brings a welcome blast from the past, when sport coupes were often regarded as a kind of blank canvas for personal expression.

    Factory options are few, but the tC offers an extensive menu of dealer-installed accessories that allow owners to build a tC unique to their tastes. There's even a stripped-down, extra-value-priced Spec Series model, with downgraded wheels and seats, just good enough to get you from the showroom floor to the tuner shop.Thank you for your seeing this post...happy for your visit...please fill your comments in the cbox...

    Chrysler PT cruiser

    Hi to all...Happy to see you again in the car reviews...This Chrysler PT cruiser is small convertible type car...lets see the features of the car...The Chrysler PT cruiser combines the retro look of late-'30s American iron with modern performance, efficiency and features. The PT Cruiser comes in two body styles, a versatile five-door wagon and a not-so-versatile two-door convertible.

    The five-door model's tall body boasts lots of room for people and cargo. In fact, its interior volume and versatility compare well to a small SUV. Fold the seats down and you can carry an eight-foot ladder. Pull the rear seats out and you can haul a load of building materials or a big-screen TV. Yet the PT Cruiser is small and easy to park.

    It's also easy on gas. The lower-level models are competitively priced, and we think they make the most sense.

    The PT Cruiser convertible is one of the least expensive convertibles on the market. It looks like a chopped-top gangster-mobile with the top up and puts the wind in your hair with the top down. Roomy seats make it great for four passengers. Its trunk is tiny and awkward, however; in fact, we can't think of a trunk that's less convenient than the one on the Cruiser convertible.

    The PT Cruiser doesn't fit within existing automotive marketing segments, but competes on some levels with the Chevy HHR, theScion XB, and the Mini Cooper. Like them, it is essentially a car: The PT Cruiser is based on the Dodge Neon a compact car noted for sprightly performance. So it drives like a car, though the handling is not as good. Cruiser is an appropriate name.

    Chrysler has dropped the high-performance GT models for 2008. Frankly, we thought they were over-priced and favored the standard model that is still available.

    New for 2008, a tire-pressure monitor and front side air bags are now standard on all models and the base wagon is now called LX. In addition, the Touring model gets a standard automatic transmission and 16-inch wheels. The 2008 Limited model now has 17-inch wheels, the 2.4-liter turbocharged engine, ABS and traction control as standard equipment.Thank you for seeing this post..Happy for your visit...please fill your comments in the cbox...

    Chrysler Sebring

    Hi to all...Happy to meet you with an interesting the series of the latest car,here comes Chrysler Sebring..lets see the features of the car...The Chrysler Sebring was completely redesigned and introduced as a four-door sedan for the 2007 model year, then a two-door convertible was added in mid-2007 as a 2008 model.

    The midsize, front-wheel-drive Chrysler Sebring competes with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Saturn Aura among others. The availability of a retractable hardtop convertible distinguishes the Sebring lineup from its popular competitors. The Sebring convertible offers a choice of vinyl or cloth soft tops or the retractable hard top.

    The 2008 Sebring sedan and convertible are available in three trim levels with a choice of three engines. The base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, the mid-level engine is a 2.7-liter V6 that can run on E85, a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline. Both are mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. The top-of-the-line engine is a 3.5-liter V6 paired with a six-speed automatic.

    Even the four-cylinder is fairly responsive in the sedan, but the V6 is the best choice for the convertible. And the six-speed automatic is more responsive than the four-speed automatic.

    The Sebring sedan offers competitive passenger room, with plenty of room up front and a useful rear seat. The sedan seats five. The trunk is small for the class and has a small opening, however.

    The convertible offers good interior space up front. It seats four passengers, but the rear seat lacks the legroom to make it comfortable for adults to sit back there on long trips. More than half of the available space in the convertible's trunk is taken up by the top mechanism when the top is down.

    The Sebring cabin is pleasant. The look is sleek, and it is all nicely integrated and finished. Some of the interior surfaces are cold and hard to the touch, however. With an available DVD rear-seat entertainment system, and Chrysler's MyGIG hard-disc audio system, the Sebring's available technology is as good as or better than anything in the class.

    Dynamically, the Sebring fits middle of the pack in the midsize class. Ride quality is generally pleasant, soaking up most bumps well. Handling is competent in the sedan. The convertible lacked the driving feel of the sedan, however, and exhibited noticeable cowl shake.

    Introduced as a 2007 model, the Sebring sedan gets two changes for 2008, one major and one minor. All-wheel drive is available for 2008 on the Limited model. Sirius Satellite Radio is standard. The convertible was introduced as an early 2008 model, so it gets no changes at the fall model year changeover, though all base models are now called LX.Thank you for seeing this post...Happy for your visit...please fill your comments in the cbox...

    Mazda CX-7

    Hi dudes...happy to meet you guys with an interesting article about the Mazda car...lats see the features of the car...The Mazda CX-7 fits neatly into the zoom-zoom mold: sporty but functional; roomy but svelte; snappy but comfortable. It has a surprisingly powerful, and fairly frugal, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, with a state-of-the-art six-speed automatic transmission, motivating a sporty-looking and sporty-handling five-passenger vehicle that will haul nearly as much stuff as it does people.

    The Mazda CX-7 offers seating for five people, decent cargo space, a comprehensive set of standard safety features and distinctive looks. We found it fun to drive, with responsive handling and good high-speed stability.

    Mazda introduced the CX-7 for 2007 as a totally new crossover utility vehicle to compete against theToyota and Honda CR-V, among others. Crossovers, as they're called, have become the hottest segment in the auto industry. They combine the high seating position and cargo capacity of a truck-based sport utility vehicle with the agility, smoothness and fuel economy of a car. And many folks who find a minivan or station wagon just to ego-bruising seem okay with a crossover.

    As the CX-7 was all-new for 2007, very little has changed for the 2008 model year. There has been some fiddling with the option list and, thanks to some reprogramming of the engine management, premium fuel is now recommended rather than required, so it will run on regular gas. The CX-7 still starts at less than $24,000 for the front-wheel-drive version. A well-equipped, nicely featured, all-wheel-drive model goes for less than $30,000; and the top model with every option box checked comes in just around $35,000. Though a bit pricier than the prime opposition, the CX-7 excels in ride and handling.Thank you for seeing this post...please fill your comments in the cbox...happy for your visit...

    Jaguar S-type

    Hi to all...happy to see you guys with an interesting article about the Jaguar S my older posts i furnish the details about the Jaguar you guys known something about the Jaguar cars, lets see the features of the car...
    The 2008 model year will be the last for the Jaguar S-type Its replacement, the sharper-edged, more contemporary-looking XF, has arrived. So if the rounded, retro lines of the S-Type have oozed into your heart, this is your last chance to bring one home brand-new. You could buy another mid-size luxury sedan with similar performance, but you won't find another that looks anything like this. And that, really, is the point of any Jaguar: If you are charmed by its looks, then there is no alternative.

    But even from a more objective point of view, we like the Jaguar S-Type. It's a comfortable car, it handles well, and it makes a statement when it pulls up to a five-star hotel. The base 3.0-liter V6 delivers responsive performance, thanks partly to the superb six-speed automatic transmission. Opt for the 4.2 model and you get thrilling performance from its powerful V8 engine. If that isn't enough, you can spring for the high-performance S-Type R, which boasts a supercharged engine, adaptive sports suspension, and bigger front brakes.

    Jaguar is marking the S-Type's departure with some final styling changes. All 2008 S-Types will wear the more conspicuously racy three-scoop front bumper that formerly belonged exclusively to the super-performance S-Type R. Eighteen-inch wheels have also been made standard; and 19's are now optional on base V6 and V8 models, and standard on the R. Additionally, the final 750 S-Types produced will be specially equipped Satin Editions, with distinctive interior trim and exterior colors.

    We'll miss the S-Type which, in its ten year life span improved in some way almost every year. Even when it was launched in 1999 we praised its beautiful exterior and rich interior, and enthused over its sporty handling. Jaguar re-engineered the S-Type for 2003, and again revamped its styling for 2005, when the wonderful ZF six-speed automatic transmission became standard across the range. Additional refinements arrived with the 2006 models: The premium-level 4.2 liter V8 was re-tuned just slightly to deliver a nicely even 300 and 400 horsepower in its naturally aspirated and supercharged forms, respectively. At the same time, both the base 3.0-liter V6 and the atmospheric V8 achieved ULEV emissions status. And a new Conti-Teves braking system promised even more stopping power. Last year, 2007, saw significant upgrades in standard equipment.Thank you for seeing this post...please fill your comments in the cbox...happy for your visit...

    Volvo c30

    Hi guys...happy to meet you with an interesting article about the volvo c30...lets see the features of the car....
    A halo car is an automaker's most desirable model. It's meant to bring new customers into dealerships with the hope that they'll buy another car in the lineup. It's often a test bed for performance technology, and it's usually inserted at the top of the company's lineup. A halo car shows what a company is capable of, and it can change an automaker's overall reputation.

    With the release of the 2008 volvo c30, Volvo is offering what one company executive calls a reverse halo car. Although this two-door hatchback comes in at the bottom of Volvo's lineup, Volvo hopes it can bring new people into its dealerships and give the company a sportier reputation.

    The C30 is a new model for Volvo, but it shares most of its mechanicals with Volvo's compact s40 sedan and v50 wagon. While similar to these cars, the C30 has considerably less standard equipment, allowing Volvo to make it its lowest priced car.

    That value pricing doesn't make the C30 a typical economy car, though. Instead it's more similar to the Audi A3 and Volkswagon GTI class of sporty hatchbacks, a fun-to-drive car aimed at younger buyers.

    And fun to drive it is: The C30 is Volvo's best handling car. It has good steering feel, stays flat in corners, and is nimble enough to slice through traffic. The 227-hp turbocharged five-cylinder engine provides plenty of punch to keep the fun coming. Ride quality is generally good, though it can become a little hard with the available 18-inch wheels.

    Inside, the C30 offers a pleasant, fairly roomy cabin for four. The standard cloth upholstery is a unique fabric that resembles wetsuit material. Room up front is plentiful, and the controls are easy to spot and use. The two-door body style makes getting into the backseat a bit of a hassle, but the rear seat is comfortable for two passengers, provided they're not NBA players. Those rear seats fold down to create a large rear hatch area with lots of carrying capacity.

    As Volvo's lowest priced car, the C30 is a bit raw. The five-cylinder engine is powerful, but makes coarse sounds. The cabin isn't as well insulated from exterior sounds as other Volvos. Road noise is especially noticeable on rough pavement, a problem exacerbated by the open hatchback body style.

    Overall, the Volvo C30 is good looking, fun to drive, and offers the easily accessible cargo utility of a hatchback. Volvo's value pricing makes it affordable, but it also means that the standard equipment list is light (cruise control isn't standard). Volvo offers numerous Custom Build Options, so buyers can personalize their C30s, much like the Mini Cooper. With a few well-chosen options, the C30 can be a fine choice.

    Mercury Milan

    Hi to all...glad to meet you guys with an interesting article about the sedan Mercury Milan...The Mercury Milan is a good choice among a superb selection of midsize sedans. Designed to compete with the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, the Milan is based on the superb Mazda 6 platform. It is smaller than the Sable, and is Mercury's entry-level car. It shares much in common with the new Ford Fusion.

    This is one of the most stylish, contemporary Mercury sedans since the first one showed up in 1939, and it just looks right. While it's not as adventurous in design as the 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser with its cantilevered roof and power rear window, it is good looking and modern.

    The Milan accommodates five adults, with more interior room by most measures than some very expensive cars. The interior is inviting and comfortable, the materials are very good, and the detailing is better than average. We like the contrast stitching in the seats, and the fold-down rear seats add an extra measure of space and utility. Most important, it's easy to operate and use.

    It's available with four-cylinder and V6 engines. Both engines are adequate but are not as powerful as engines offered by several competitors. The V6 gets an EPA-rated 26 mpg on the highway and comes with a six-speed automatic transmission, a rarity in this class that gives both better acceleration and better fuel economy than a five-speed automatic.

    Ride quality is smooth, even on the roughest of big-city streets, making the Milan a good choice for Detroit, New York and other places with imperfect infrastructures. The Milan is very stable at high speeds and the brakes are very good. Order the optional all-wheel drive and you get excellent handling and stability on slippery surfaces, such as rain, snow and ice, further enhancing safety.

    For 2008, the Milan gets new features and options. A tire-pressure monitor and keyless entry keypad are now standard, while rear obstacle detection becomes an option. Mercury's Sync communications and entertainment system and ambient lighting are offered for the first time, and the available navigation system adds voice activation.

    Saturn VUE

    Hi guys..happy to meet you all with an interesting article about the saturn VUE...this is a sports utility vehicle... For 2008, Saturn has retired the second-generation, facelifted Vue five-seat crossover vehicle and replaced it with an all-new vehicle that is closely based on GM's German Opel Antara in terms of its basic layout, platform, and interior decor. It will eventually be sold around the world in Saturn, Opel, Chevrolet, Holden and Dawoo brands. About the only things left over from the old plastic-sided Vue are a couple of its powertrains. Otherwise, it's a much fresher, sportier-looking vehicle than the big, slab-sided square-cornered SUV it replaces.

    As such, the all-new 2008 Saturn Vue presents itself with a slightly smaller interior in terms of its total cubic feet of storage, but a much more pleasant and useable interior than the outgoing model provided.

    With two trim levels, three engines, two transmissions and a choice front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the 2008 Saturn Vue fits below the larger and roomier, eight-passenger Saturn outlook in both size and price. The Vue retails from about $21,400 for a basic front-drive model to more than $31,000 for a loaded all-wheel-drive version. While the starting price is more than $3,000 higher than that of the previous model, the list of additional standard content is quite long, so the value proposition is still a good one. With this breadth of offerings, the new Vue provides a step up for the Saturn sedan customer with a growing family, or a step down in size and an improvement in fuel economy over a minivan or mid-size SUV.

    With the 2008 Saturn Vue, you get a whole lot more style, more power and acceleration over the 2007 model. The available V6 engine comes with a six-speed automatic that replaces the previous five-speed automatic, and better highway fuel economy (when checking the 2008 numbers against the 2007 numbers, remember that the EPA has changed the testing procedures resulting in fuel economy ratings that are lower and more realistic results). The Vue V6 AWD model is rated at 16/22 mpg City/Highway, while the four-cylinder front-wheel-drive version gets 19/26 mpg, a substantial difference. With a V6 engine, the Vue is rated to tow up to 3500 pounds.

    Saturn loaded the new 2008 Vue down with safety equipment. The Vue comes standard with a full complement of air bags, traction and stability control, anti-lock brakes.

    With more standard features, more power, and better fuel economy, the all-new 2008 Saturn Vue represents a vehicle that's full of space and storage, easy to use, easy to drive, and easy on the eyes.

    Bajaj Lite

    Hi the series of small budget comes a good news for the middle class families that bajaj india also joins the the auto expo 2008 bajaj india corporation introduced the concept vehicle of the bajaj lite,which is the small budget car...lets see the features of the car...Take a look at the picture here. Not a bad looker at all, especially the lights and bumper - some might even say it looks better than the Zen Estilo. However, remember that this is a concept vehicle - the actual Bajaj Lite might look very different indeed.

    Launch date is expected to be a couple of years down the line - so no, we are not going to see Bajaj's small car battling it out with Tata's small car on the streets of India.

    Expected fuel efficiency of the Bajaj Lite is 35 kmpl. That is higher than the rumoured fuel efficiency of the Tata small car which is 25 kmpl.

    The Tata small car is expected to cost Rs 1.25 lakhs - when it is out on the streets. That day is not too far away. But the Bajaj car is gonna be a long time coming.

    The Bajaj Lite concept will offer a pterol and a diesel engine. So is that 35 kmpl for every liter of diesel or petrol? No answers yet. If you know the answer, please add it in comments below.

    According to Rajiv Bajaj, managing director of Baja Auto, the car will have a transmission which is unique in that it won't be an automatic transmission or a geared vehicle but something in between.

    Discussions are going on with Renault for mass production of the Bajaj Lite.

    The price which renault is targeting for the small car is $ 3000, which translates to Rs 1,17,000 at current exchange rates. But this is just a figure - production costs and exchange rates boith could change massively by the time the car is ready for production.

    So now we keep waiting for the Tata small car...thank you for seeing this post...please fill your comments in the cbox...
