What Now For Canadian Suzuki Car Owners?
by admin on Apr 10th, 2013
With the American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) pulling out of the US and Canada in 2014, whatâ€™s in store for Suzuki car owners? The news that any automaker is pulling out of North America is never good, even if you donâ€™t own one of their cars. If you do own one, that news is even worse. Competition drives innovation, the more competition our automakers have, the more forward-looking they have to be. Competition keeps prices un...

SRT Core Models Seen at Chicago
by admin on Feb 11th, 2013
The term â€śback to basicsâ€ť is a popular term in Europe right now. It reflects culture, the economic climate and that rose-tinted time when money wasnâ€™t a problem. When we bought groceries from the corner store instead of supermarkets and when we took our shoes to be repaired instead of throwing them away. Dodge sees back to basics slightly differently. Their version of it means back to the heyday of muscle cars. When a car was j...

Another Kia Concept Set for Chicago Reveal
by admin on Feb 4th, 2013
Kia release a teaser image for a new crossover vehicle they are apparently showing at the Chicago Auto Show later this week. Called the Kia Cross GT Concept, thereÂ isn'tÂ much to know right now except for the image itself. As you can see from the image, itÂ doesn'tÂ give much away. Itâ€™s interesting because this will be coming on the heels of the new 2014 Kia Sorento, which is also a contender in the SUV/crossover market. While ...

Ford, Nissan and Daimler Joining Forces on Fuel Cell Tech
by admin on Jan 31st, 2013
The shift towards alternative fuels is gaining momentum. Ever so slowly, we are moving away from gas and diesel and towards hybrids, electric cars and emerging technologies. This is once more demonstrated by the news that Ford, Nissan and Daimler are collaborating to deliver new hydrogen fuel cell technology for future models. This advanced technology is expensive, prohibitively so. It makes sense for automakers to work together and ...

It also seems to have the Superman â€śSâ€ť on the hood and red LED headlights. Not all that much e...

Which Chrysler Model is Getting the Mopar Treatment?
by admin on Jan 28th, 2013
Chrysler released a teaser image last week for a new 2013 Mopar model, but left us guessing as to what model would be getting the makeover. As you can see, the image, while nice, tells us absolutely nothing, as does the press release. The real thing will be unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show in February. Previous Mopar cars have been the 2010 Mopar Challenger, 2011 Mopar Charger and the 2012 Mopar 300. The latter just one of many spec...

New Web Portal to Improve Perception of EVs
by admin on Jan 25th, 2013
According to a recent survey from the Canadian Automobile Association, only 5% of Canadians would consider buying an electric vehicle when they come to buy a new car. Thatâ€™s actually down from 6% from last year. Not only woefully low, but declining. The vast majority of those surveyed said they simply donâ€™t know enough about the technology or the cars on offer to consider them as a purchase. Others said they donâ€™t believe EVs t...
