Getting the most out of your Muffler

To our outmost dismay, many cars have been throttled back from their full capacity. Manufacturers claim that their exhaust systems provide both the maximum horsepower and gas mileage, but are they to be trusted? Well, these two aspects do not need to be mutually exclusive, that much is certain. That being said, car companies build their vehicles for the broad audience, and people seem unconcerned by the absence of noise and top power. Other car lovers, however, have an insatiable need for speed…See More

Study Shows That Car Shoppers Needs and Preferences Are Ignored in 40% of Dealership Sales

As more and more vehicles tout a range of exciting features, better safety, connectivity and the next best thing in car design, manufacturers and dealers will need to compete on a different sphere – the customer experience. The customer experience is increasingly becoming the most important factor as consumers choose between brands and dealerships.

At the heart of providing exceptional customer experiences is of course the customer. Consumers want to be understood, their needs and preferences considered, and above all, feel valued.

Top 5 Transmissions by General Motors (GM)

Posted by Georgia Moore on June 26, 2016 at 11:07pm 0 Comments

From increased powertrain, enhanced acceleration off-the-line, to improved fuel economy, transmission upgrades brings in a host of advantages. If you are looking to buy a GM transmission, we’ve created a list of top 5 GM transmissions to help you out. 

No matter if you are looking for Turbo 400 transmission or 4l60e transmission, this post is sure to help you make an informed buying decision. 

In an automobile, transmission is a system which connects the wheels to the engine. Suitable turning force, or torque, is thus generated by the engine, which usually falls within a narrow speed range. 

However, to power your ride, it is very important for the wheels to turn with an adequate amount of torque at multiple speeds, spread across a wider range. 

While the speed is…

LEASE CREDIT APPROVALS DIP AGAIN AFTER HIGHER NUMBERS LAST MONTH

Posted by John Sternal on June 21, 2016 at 8:53am 0 Comments

Swapalease.com, the nation’s largest car lease marketplace, reports car lease credit approvals registered a 61.1% approval rate for May, a significant drop from the approval ratings in April (69.9%).

 

As consumer confidence decreases it may be pulling credit approvals down with it. Consumer confidence weakened slightly in May, dropping 92.6, down from 94.7 in April according to The Conference Board. As the year continues, consumer confidence is forecasted to follow a downward trend resulting in potentially lower numbers for lease credit approvals.

 

While overall lease rates have remained healthy and even at record levels, industry observers have pointed to data that show a peak in the automotive market. This sentiment, combined with data that show fewer jobs added recently, hints at a consumer mindset that could grow weary in the coming months.

The model was introduced to the public at the Geneva Auto Show in 2013. It was the product of rigorous testing and research in partnership with the University of Modena. The designer was Centro stile Ferrari and not Pininfarina as has been customary for many decades. True to the production modes of Ferraris (exotic cars being their forte), only 499 units were ever built. All of them nearly sold out right after the announcement despite the price exceeding a million dollars.

MAJORITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA DRIVERS WOULD PAY $10 - $20 PER TRIP TO DRIVE ON A NEW EXPRESSWAY & ALLEVIATE TRAFFIC

The survey, which was presented to more than 450 drivers in Southern California during the month of April, found that out of all features in a car, including more advanced options like collision avoidance, Southern Californians think the horn is the most important feature. This could be because it helps them communicate with other drivers on the road. 

Traffic remains a significant pain point for drivers in Southern California. In…

On This Day In History

July 01, 1997: Hong Kong returned to China

At midnight on July 1, 1997, Hong Kong reverts back to Chinese rule in a ceremony attended by British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Prince Charles of Wales, Chinese President Jiang Zemin, and U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. A few thousand Hong Kongers protested the turnover, which was otherwise celebratory and peaceful.

In 1839, Britain invaded China to crush opposition to its interference in the country’s economic, social, and political affairs. One of Britain’s first acts of the war was to occupy Hong Kong, a sparsely inhabited island off the coast of southeast China. In 1841, China ceded the island to the British with the signing of the Convention of Chuenpi, and in 1842 the Treaty of Nanking was signed, formally ending the First Opium War.

Britain’s new colony flourished as an East-West trading center and as the commercial gateway and distribution center for southern China. In 1898, Britain was granted an additional 99 years of rule over Hong Kong under the Second Convention of Peking. In September 1984, after years of negotiations, the British and the Chinese signed a formal agreement approving the 1997 turnover of the island in exchange for a Chinese pledge to preserve Hong Kong’s capitalist system. On July 1, 1997, Hong Kong was peaceably handed over to China in a ceremony attended by numerous Chinese, British, and international dignitaries. The chief executive under the new Hong Kong government, Tung Chee Hwa, formulated a policy based on the concept of “one country, two systems,” thus preserving Hong Kong’s role as a principal capitalist center in Asia.
