Steps for a Car Tune Up Service

0 Comments

When you buy a car it is important that you know about the tune up services so that it gets proper maintenance. Each and every part of a car is important and that is why you should contact a good servicing center before or after purchasing the car. The tune ups are divided into several categories, some which you can do by yourself while some are meant for those who work at the servicing center. Here are some of the tune ups that you can do yourself without the help of others:

  • Checking all the fluids related to the engine
  • Inspecting and cleaning the battery from time to time
  • Checking the air filter of the car
  • Adjusting the drive belts and checking the underhood hoses
  • Getting the spark plugs replaced
  • Checking the PCV value and sending the car for servicing of the cooling system

Apart from this there are some other tune ups that are done at the servicing centre. Some of them are given below:

  • Checking the fuel system of the car in detail
  • The charging system of the car should also be checked
  • The engine of the car also needs to be checked from time to time

The first step in the servicing of a car is to see how the engine of the car is performing along with the compression of the cylinder. The cylinder’s compression helps in determining the components of the engine and also acts as a guide for the other repairs and tune ups of the car. If you notice carefully then you will see that whenever any technician starts to repair a car he would first start with the cylinder’s compressor.

Apart from the compressor the fluids are also important because they help in the lubrication of the car. It also involves the proper working of the window washer systems, brakes and cooling. When the car is used the fluids inside tends to get contaminated and therefore they should be replaced after a few days. The fluids also include engine oil that helps in the running of the engine.

  • The rear spoiler of the car also remains active all the time and can reduce the lift of the car to up to 120 kg.

  • Due to the asymmetric cabin of the car the driver would have the facility of a grab handle that would help him to get full centre console from the passenger side. This also helps in keeping it separate from the seat of the driver.
  • The functions of the car are grouped ergonomically. This will give you the feel of flying a military aircraft. This has also given rise to the introduction of the joystick shaped gear that helps in the controlling of those speed transmissions.

BMW M3 #DTM Champion Edition model

0 Comments

The BMW M3 #DTM Champion Edition Model is back after two decades and this time it has exceeded all the expectations of the people because this car is just outstanding. Many may say that it resembles the racing car of Spengler but that is just a rumor and nothing else. If you see the car with your own eyes you would never say that. Since this is a special edition car there is only one color that has been launched and that is frozen black metallic. It has carbon flaps with different types of dark chrome elements and the wheels are matt black.

Following Are Some Of The Features Of The Car:

Tricked out for less: Best cars for youngsters

0 Comments

Stay Away from the Lemons!

It ain’t easy being a college student, buying a car for college students means plunking down cash for a second hand vehicle of your dreams. A few years ago, it was all about economizing, while the fuel efficiency of a car still makes the top of the list, one thing is certain, style is back. So, if you can’t afford that Viper just yet, no need to fret, the following are some of the best cars for youngsters.

Pic 1

Honda S2000:

Honda’s two seat roadster was designed for knife-edge handling and open air excitement. Designed by the same team that created the Acura NSX, the Honda S2000 is one of the most focused sports cars on the market. Early models feature a 2.0-liter engine that can rev to 9,000 RPM. S2000s built after 2004 come with a slightly larger 2.2-liter motor that doesn’t rev as high, but is ultimately more powerful and easier to drive around town.

Toyota Corolla:

When it comes to making reliable cars, nobody does it better than Toyota and no one sells them like Nissan Dealer in Fontana. The Toyota Corolla might not be the most exciting car, but it’s not going to let you down. Stick to Corollas from 2003-2008 for the best build quality and a good value. A 2003 Corolla gets around 31 combines mpg and should cost somewhere between $5,000 and $6,000.

Honda Civic:

There are thousands of used cars for sale at any given time in any given place, but choosing the right one can be difficult. If you find one of these cheap and reliable cars for sale, it’s worth buying. Log on to http://metronissanredlands.com for more details.
Honda has a solid reputation of making reliable cars, so you can’t go wrong with the Honda Civic. These cars tend to hold onto their value very well, but they’re still a good value.

The 1999-2000 models available at Nissan Dealer in Fontana are affordable and more fun to drive than newer versions. The VTEC engine in the HX, EX, and Si trims gives the Civic a lot of pep for not a lot of cash. A 1999 Honda Civic Si pumps out 160 horsepower, gets 26 city/31 highway mpg, and has a blue book value of around $4,000-6,000.

Toyota Yaris:

Apart from the peace of mind that comes from owning a Toyota, the Yaris offers style and durability to the modern college-going student. The car has a low ownership cost that is relatively cheaper than other cars of the same class and a basic three year warranty.

Nissan Versa Sedan:

The Nissan Versa Sedan has consistently stood for a high level of quality, efficiency and reliability. Nissan, in general is the most handed down car we know of and it’s one that owners give up long before the car gives up on them. While there is a fixation on hybrids, the Nissan Versa delivers reliable performance and fuel economy.

Ending Note:

When it comes to the best cars for youngsters, this list is just the tip of the iceberg. To find out more information on some of the other affordable options of cars for students you can visit http://metronissanredlands.com which is a full service Nissan dealership which provides new and used Nissan cars.

Top 5 Cars For Millionaires

0 Comments

If you’re reading this the chances are that you’re probably not a millionaire playboy or a recent lottery jackpot winner, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t dream big. Here is a list of the top 5 cars for millionaires to parade about in whether they’re attending a Hollywood movie premier, driving through France to their yacht in Monaco or simply cruising the streets of London, Paris or New York looking awesome. You never know, one day you could find yourself in need of this list when you hit the big time. So let’s take a look at the top 5 cars for millionaires to splash their cash on.

Lamborghini Veneno

The Lamborghini Veneno just looks like a millionaire’s car, with its sleek, futuristic exterior and top speed of 221mph. If Doc had a bigger budget in Back To The Future then the Delorean probably would have ended up looking like theVeneno. It’s every school boys dream, stunning looking, and fast and like something that was made in outer space. Unfortunately even millionaires can’t have everything their own way and due to the limited number of these cars being made you’ll have to go on a waiting list before you can buy one.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

If you want people to take notice of your car then what better way to do it than in the fastest one in the world? The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport has an eye watering top speed of 268mph and it will go from 0 to 60mph in a paint stripping 2.4 seconds. If the Veneno looks like it was built in outer space then the Veyron Super Sport looks like it was built by NASA. If you want to sacrifice some elegance and inner comforts for sheer speed and power then this is the car for you.

Aston Martin One-77

The name Aston Martin has become synonymous with that of James Bond which instantly gives it an air of class and sophistication. Therefore any Aston Martin you choose will make you feel a little bit more like James Bond than the average man. Though the One-77 has an extra something about it, with a top speed of 220mph, 0 to 60mph in just 3.4 seconds and a cooler than cool exterior you will both look and feel the part in this.

Ferrari LaFerrari

Of course no list of top millionaire cars would be complete without a Ferrari and this one has earned its place without doubt. With a top speed of 230mph it’s the famous brand’s speediest road car to date and even more important to all you millionaire playboys out there, it still looks like a Ferrari. There’s something about that classic red car that just feels special.

Rolls-Royce Ghost

Of course the perfect millionaire’s car isn’t all about speed and the price tag, it’s about class, sophistication and elegance and the Rolls-Royce Ghost has that all in abundance. That being said, this car is no slouch, with a 0 to 60mph time of 4.8 seconds it still reaches an impressive speed but it’s the interior and little extras that really make this car stand out. With the huge amount of room in the back seat you could be forgiven for feeling like you’re in a luxury private jet and you will be sure to turn heads wherever you go in the world.

What would be your car of choice if you were a millionaire in the market?

How to Keep Your Car in Constant Showroom Condition

0 Comments

A car is a big investment. We rely on it to get to work and to maintain a social life. But our cars also represent who we are as people. Everything from the vehicle’s color, type and design expresses our personalities and goals in life. A young executive may drive a sporty BMW coupe while a proud mother of three may have an Escalade. When you take care of your car and keep it in showroom condition, not only are you safeguarding your investment, you are presenting yourself as an organized, determined person. After all, would you open your front door to a pigsty of a house for the world to see? Would you let your shutters rust at the hinges and fall from your window into a flowerbed? Of course not. Presenting an orderly home is just as vital to your reputation as being seen in a pristine car. Here are some ways to keep that vehicle looking showroom fresh.

Keeping the interior fresh

Keeping the interior of your car fresh will give the driver and passengers a relaxing atmosphere. Nobody wants to ride in a car with a faded dashboard or stains ground into the seats. Window tinting is one of the best investments for your car and will protect the interior’s leather, vinyl and fabric from cracking and fading by blocking out the sun’s harmful UV rays. Furthermore, window tinting gives your vehicle a nice aesthetic look.

Red car in hands

It is also advisable to condition your leather seats with an automotive product as directed on the packaging. Be sure to use a non-abrasive microfiber cloth to prevent scratching to surface areas.

It is also advantageous to invest in dashboard covers for your vehicles. They just aren’t stylish accessories; they also help protect your dash from sunlight and accidental spills. Most of us know what it is like to hit the brake and have morning coffee spray onto the dashboard. A custom-fit cover will prevent mishaps like this from staining the dashboard.

Exterior

Protecting your car’s paintjob is a no-brainer when it comes to car care essentials. Yet so many people do it incorrectly. Knowing how to clean and wax your car correctly will keep it looking like it just drove off a showroom floor year-round. When cleaning your car’s body be sure to use an automotive soap with a microfiber mitt. Also, make sure your water isn’t hard, as hard water can damage a paintjob. Once you have completely dried your car you can apply wax. This will give your car a new shine while protecting it from debris.
Also, don’t neglect your headlights. Hazed-out plastic headlights are not only hideous to look at, they are also dangerous. Be sure to pick up a headlight product that can remove the haze and keep your lights bright and clear.

Final thoughts

Of course purchasing a dashmat for your car and truck will help prevent your interior from sun damage. But if you can, keep it in the garage or covered with a material designed to fit the auto’s specific body. Your car is your child on four wheels—treat it as such and it will serve you well for years to come.

Extending The Life Of A Car

0 Comments

Although impossible, it does seem as though cars have an innate sense of when they are respected, and when they are not respected. Intelligent car owners are aware of this intangible aspect of car ownership, and they know that if they take care of their car, their car will take care of them. The outward appearance of an owner’s vehicle is almost as important as the condition of the engine. This is because rust is as much a mental condition as it is a physical condition. If an owner allows the outward appearance of his or her car to rot and rust that lack of care will soon spread to all areas of the engine. It is no coincidence that people who allow their own outward appearance to be shabby, usually suffer from some sort of internal disease sooner, rather than later. With that in mind, a look at automobile upkeep is in order, including a look a some of the 4×4 and car accessories that you can use to maintain your vehicle.

Many people do not consider bonnet protectors when they consider car care. However, without a bonnet protector, over time the front of the vehicle will take on a great deal of damage, some of which may carry over to the engine. Sand, gravel, insects, and other forms of debris pelt the front of the auto over time. It is much easier to clean a bonnet protector, than to clean and restore the dirt and damage dealt the bonnet over time. In addition to this, such a defense will keep a great deal of road grime from building up in the radiator grill and other parts of the engine. Car covers should be used to protect the paint from the sun if the car is parked outside for long periods of time. It should be noted that spray-on waxes will not protect the paint of a car as well as hand waxing will protect the paint.

Light bulbs for cars are not expensive, but citations for having a missing light are costly. Once a driver allows a broken light to remain broken, not only will citations build up, but it is a matter of time before other parts of the car fall into disrepair as well. Broken lights are a needless problem that is preventable with the use of light guards. It is worth noting that when an auto’s headlight covers become hazy and dim, they may become clear again by wiping them with toothpaste.

The general public knows that an auto is to be serviced every 3,000 miles. However, the second part of that rule is often overlooked, and that is that the car should be serviced every three months. This is regardless of how short the car is of the 3,000 mile target. Nobody should wait until it is time to service the car, however, to check the vital fluids. Far too many cars have met an early demise because the owner assumed all of the engines fluids were full. Oil, transmission fluid, radiator fluid, brake fluid, and power-steering fluid should all be checked at least once a fortnight.

A wonderful way of extending the life of a car is to give it a rest. This means that the car does not need to be the workhorse for long, grueling trips. It is quick and easy to rent a car for these occasions, and the small amount paid for the rental will come back to the car’s owner ten-fold in auto-repair savings. Car maintenance should not be limited to the engine and exterior. By using washable seat covers and sturdy floor mats, a car’s owner will ensure that the interior of the vehicle matches up with the sparkling exterior. Cigarette smoke will deal almost as much damage to a car’s interior as it does the smoker’s own interior. Cigarette breaks are a great time to pull the car over, stretch the legs, and keep that damaging smoke outside of the car. By applying these rules to the ownership of a car, the owner will ensure that he or she has a dependable vehicle well beyond the years covered by the warranty.

Is it Better to Get Your Car Door Locks Changed or Rekeyed?

0 Comments

If you lose your car keys or if your car keys are stolen, replacing the door and ignition locks can become quite costly. Rather than spend enormous amounts of money changing the locks, what you should do instead is simply get your locks rekeyed.

Getting your locks rekeyed is just as secure as getting the locks changed; the old keys which were lost or stolen will no longer work and your car will be secure. Some auto manufacturers actually sell lock rekey kits complete with everything that will be needed to make the locks secure once more.

When you decide to get the locks rekeyed, you basically have two options. You can do the work yourself if you’ve got the skills to do so, or you can call a local automotive locksmith to do the work for you.

Unless you’ve done this sort of work before, attempting to rekey the locks yourself might not be a good idea. Although there are plenty of video tutorials on YouTube and lots of advice in automobile care forums, chances are that although the work looks easy, it’s quite complicated and you might end up making a mess of things. For this reason it’s best to call the professionals rather than save a few dollars only to have to spend them later to repair the damage you’ve caused with your DIY project!

If you find yourself in the position where you need to call a locksmith to rekey your car locks, do not panic and hire the first company that shows up on your search result list; take some time to conduct proper research. Hire someone who’s been in the business for several years, has a physical shop at a known address, and has a good reputation. Read a few reviews to get an idea of the quality of service; if you can’t find anyone on the internet, ask your friends and neighbors in the area if they can recommend a good automotive locksmith.

Your car dealership may be able to rekey your car locks for you; however, when dealerships perform this sort of service it is always more expensive than what an independent locksmith would charge.
