2015 Nissan Versa Note SR - Driven

When Nissan brought me its cheapest hatchback, the 2014 Versa Note, earlier this year I found myself impressed with its nimbleness, abundant interior space great features despite its bargain price. I did wish it was a little faster, and the CVT isn?t the best, but in general I recommended it as a great bargain runabout. For 2015, Nissan has the new sportier looking Versa Note SR, and the automaker sent it my way for a week of testing (read: flogging). The new car has revised visual cues inside and out, and the equipment list is a little different than…

The dual-minivan plan, revisited

Rumors from Windsor suggested first that the current ?RT? minivan body would continue for some years alongside the new ?RU,? and then that it would be dropped as soon as the new designs came out ? in Chrysler form only.

Where is Reid [Bigland]? If it was up to Reid, we?d be manufacturing up until 2250. There are technical reasons why that car cannot be sold for a much longer period of time than the current time. There are regulations that are coming into effect in 2017 that are going to restrict or are going to require a substantial amount…

What To Do When Your Engine Freezes Up

It sounds like a contradiction but it happens. Your car froze up and it is overheating like it is the middle of August. What can cause a car?s engine to freeze up and overheat at the same time?

The short answer is that a lack of anti-freeze has resulted in the contents of the cooling system freezing up inside the car?s engine--in the radiator or the hoses that carry the anti-freeze from the radiator to the engine and back again. Insufficient cold weather protection is caused by an improper concentration of coolant/anti-freeze. This can happen when other…

Six Quick Tips for Sub-Zero Winter Driving

When it comes to winter car care, many motorists think of antifreeze and batteries, but vehicles need extra attention when temperatures drop below zero. The non-profit Car Care Council offers six quick tips to help your vehicle perform at its best during cold weather months.

1)    Keep the gas tank at least half full; this decreases the chance of moisture forming in the gas lines and possibly freezing.

2)    Check the tire pressure, including the spare, as tires can lose pressure when temperatures drop. Consider special tires if snow and ice are a problem in your area.

3)    Have the…

What can we expect from the 2015 Dodge Charger R/T

The new Dodge Charger R/T is like the high-school athlete whose brothers have gone on to star in college and pro ranks. Indeed, with the formidable Hellcat V-8 and the SRT 392 hogging the spotlight, the kid brother?s credentials pale. After all, the 392 packs 485 horsepower and the Hellcat lays a 707-horse smackdown, heady numbers that could make one perceive the R/T?s 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 as a little tame.

Do not be deceived. Unless you have an insatiable appetite for shredding tires, the 5.7?s output?370 horsepower, 395 lb-ft of torque?will…

Gas prices below $2 a gallon for 1st time since '09

Gasoline just keeps getting cheaper in Michigan, where the average pump price dropped Thursday to $1.97 a gallon ? the lowest since March 2009.

Prices on New Year's Day 2015 were down 13 cents in the past seven days, AAA Michigan said. Gas was 42% cheaper than it was one year ago, when the average price per gallon was $3.37.

"Gas prices continue to drop due to a significant decline in crude oil costs," auto club spokeswoman Susan Hiltz said. "Crude oil represents about two-thirds of the cost of gasoline and is directly correlated with changes in gas…

Ram top growth brand in changing van market

The upheaval in the commercial van market continued in 2014 as the Ram ProMaster hit its stride, Ford introduced the Transit and GM added a small van, courtesy of Nissan.

In November, Eurovans (ProMaster, Transit, Sprinter) outsold traditional American vans from Ford, GM and Nissan by 187 units. The gap will only grow going forward as the ProMaster gains ground and the Ford E-Series van, long the major player in the full-size van market, is relegated to chassis-cabs and similar applications. This leaves GM as the only one still making a traditional van and the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savanna…
