While commuting in heavy traffic over the weekend, we found out why consumers will be interested in the new Avalon Hybrid.

4 Famous Movie Road Trips You Can Take

2 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

My appreciation for the cinematic arts does not translate into an ability to pick good movies. Danielle and I often enjoy Netflix dates on the weekend but for some reason, I gravitate towards the obscure selections found in the streaming section. Most of the time, they don’t turn out to be winners. By the way, […]

2 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Cars and keys go together like Oreos and milk. It would seem near impossible to have a car without them – even with push button start, there is still a fob. However, that might be changing as Volvo will be the first automaker to offer a completely keyless car next year. And perhaps it seems […]

Make Your Vehicle Last a Lifetime With ACDelco

2 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

My father believed if you serviced your vehicle it would last a lifetime. When I was growing up, every two to three thousand miles he would get the oil changed on his Chevy pickup. He kept up on tire rotations and regular fluid exchanges. In my small, rural Iowa town, we had a local shop […]

Full Circle: The History of Tires

2 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

From solid to pneumatic, from bikes to motor vehicles, wheels and tires are like so many other vehicle components: we take them for granted. Most of us are accustomed to the regular replacement of our car’s tires, which eventually wear out. It’s easy to forget (or ignore) how different it was just a few decades […]

Bigger is an understatement with the Sprinter Extreme Concept. It’s over 20 feet long and 7 feet high. However, if you have heavy things to move, then it’s right up your alley.

Driverless Cars Are Inevitable And Necessary

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Our nation’s highways are teeming with automotive gridlock. Everyday commuters are backed up bumper-to-bumper, many of whom are driving alone to and from work.

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Valentine’s Day, for some, is a joyous occasion as they celebrate everything from newly kindled relationships to decades long love. For others, Valentine’s Day represents a pit of cynicism, further fueled by the utter annoyance of little cupids prancing about, their arrows aimed at sappy couples. This is the day the whole world is getting […]
