Can You Prove Seat Belts Save Lives?

Any literature from the typical car insurance company emphasizes the importance of road safety. The executives at such companies realize that use of seat belts needs to be seen as an important component of such safety issues.

Still, a number of adults drive around without the added safety of seat belts. They simply refuse to "buckle up." That fact explains the thinking behind a promotional campaign, a campaign conducted by one car insurer.

The most important details about that promotional campaign have appeared in a magazine published by one insurance company-Geico. Their Fall/Winter 2009 issue invites young people to win an added bit of cash. That cash goes to the winners of a planned contest.

The article referred to in the above paragraph offers information about an ongoing poster and video contest. Each of the contest entries is supposed to highlight the insurance of safety that a driver enjoys, whenever he or she uses a seat belt. The same article includes pictures of the winning posters in past contests.

During an earlier contest, judges had been impressed with the entry from Brandon Kim. He had used his artistic skills to create a caricature, the depiction of a family riding in a car. Moreover, he had put that family in the safe embrace of two arms.

In large letters above that car, he printed these words: "Buckle Up." A phrase placed below that car said, "Be Safe." The thin publication with his winning entry shows Kim's smiling visage as well.

Another picture in the same publication offers a glimpse at one of the top computer generated posters. However, not a single picture reveals just what the judges hope to see in a video presentation. After all, the year 2009 is the first year for inclusion of that category.

While contestants lack the example of a winning video, those contestants can still win praise from many car insurance agents. The entries submitted by those contestants can demonstrate their growing appreciation for seat belt safety.

Examining The Various Corolla Cars

The largest selling vehicle globally, the Toyota Corolla, has a considerable number of models in Pakistan with various options to cater to a broad range of budgets. The Corolla is generally recognized for Toyota's triumph as the number one auto producer and ever since its premier in 1966, the Corolla has sold in substantially more numbers than any other vehicle, with around about thirty five million units sold a few years ago. The Corolla has maintained considerable ardor for several decades and in spite of its run-of-the-mill appearance compared to heaps of other automobiles by different producers, car buyers who purchase a Corolla almost never switch over to any other vehicle.

Some of the most important reasons for its achievement include superb fuel efficiency, dependability and a significant resale price. The 2009 Corolla has been altered extensively in appearance and with a huge amount of rear leg area and a somewhat wider trunk than prior models, the Toyota Corolla is a genuine family vehicle that can undoubtedly contain bags for many individuals. There are four main models including the Corolla GLi, Altis, XLi and 2.0D, the latter being a diesel version of the automobile.

Prospective buyers can get the Corolla Altis in a manual shift or automatic transmission while the XLi and GLi are solely obtainable in five-speed manual shift transmission. The irresistible options of a sunroof, shiny wood finish interior and telescopic steering are obtainable in either the manual shift or automatic variations of the Altis unlike the XLi and GLi. The Corolla GLi like the Altis does however, contain back seat armrests with mug holders and power windows.

There are many differences in engine output and safety between the Altis and the XLi and GLi. The Altis has an EFI engine with VVTI and capability of roughly 1800cc, whereas the GLi and XLi are found with a 1299cc engine utilizing related concept. The Altis moreover has seat belts using Pretensioner and Force Limiter on the passenger side as well and a more complex fuel cut mechanism. For prospective customers expressly concerned with the automobile exterior the Altis has a high mount stop-light and side protection molding which is sold in the body color. The XLi is not sold with ABS or Electronic Brake Force Distribution a substantially worthwhile quality acquirable in the other range.

The Corolla 2.0D is accessible in three types with the Saloon being reasonably comparable to the GLi and the sunroof model comparable to the Altis. The 2.0D has the clear benefit of a diesel engine, but with compressed gas conversions so conveniently accessible, it is no more a chief aspect in finalizing which automobile to purchase.

In terms of the range of models, the Toyota Corolla has a much broader line-up than the Honda Civic, which is restricted to two to three models with minute variations. The Xli however is more directly linked with the Honda City with the Altis being on the whole comparable to the Civic. Toyota has been smart to make available so many types as it empowers potential buyers to decide on a model that matches their requirements completely.

How to Maintain a New Car

In this article we will look at some general service hints that apply to any car whether you buy it new or used. In most cases, these maintenance costs are not covered by your factory and extended warranty, but are important considerations in getting the best and most reliable service from your car.

The first consideration is where you take it for service. Many people simply take it back to the dealer where they bought it. The advantage there is that if they discover anything that needs fixing under the warranty, they will fix it for you when you take it in for service. But be aware that you pay a premium for dealer service in most things, and you can often cut the cost of that routine maintenance by 30% or more by using a good independent repair shop. And the independent shop may be a bit more observant in pointing out other problems with your car that you can have fixed under warranty back at the dealership.

Check with friends or business associates to see where they get their car serviced. Many shops offer free shuttle transportation when you drop off or pick up your car. If you have a more exotic car, be sure they specialize in that kind of car. Since the cost of parts can often be more than the cost of labor, you should realize that OEM parts from a dealer usually cost 50% more than the same parts from a good after market supplier, when available. But your dealer always uses OEM factory parts. And items like tires, brakes, filters and routine maintenance parts are inevitably a good bit more expensive from the dealership.

Once you decide where you want to have your car serviced, stick with them if they do a good job for you. There's no substitute for a good relationship with a repair shop when it comes time for major work or diagnostics. And many a shop will take a one time customer for a "ride", and take the easy route to fixing your problem rather than the most cost effective one. A little story...

I had a girlfriend once with an old Ford Mustang. Her turn signals were not working and she took it into the Ford dealership for repair. They wanted to charge her $220 to replace the whole turn sign mechanism and wiring harness, a big job as it involves dismantling the whole steering column. She couldn't afford it and came to me asking what she should do.

I had a hunch and picked up a new blinker relay from the auto parts store for $3. I reached under the dash, popped out the old one and stuck the new one in there.

Presto... the problem was fixed. I was outraged that the dealer was going to charge her $220 when a simple $3 part fixed the problem. I went down there and complained bitterly and they refunded her diagnostic charges anyhow.

In general, car repair shops are notorious for fixing things that don't need fixing, and not always because they are completely dishonest... but because it's faster than trying to figure out where the exact cause of the problem really lies. It's the old analogy of fixing a loose nail with a sledgehammer. So finding a good reliable service shop can save you a lot of money over the years.

I recommend you keep a log of your maintenance. It will help you do it regularly and that will prolong the life of your car. And it also looks good when it comes time to sell the car.

Here are some service issues that are critical and some hints that not everyone is aware of.

Oil Changes

The average new car recommends an oil change every 7500 miles. I like to change mine twice during that period. Motor oil is cheap and nothing wears an engine out faster than dirty motor oil. The simple process of combustion produces a lot of by-products, acid, carbon, and contamination from the air. And that contaminates your motor oil pretty quickly. I change it at 4000 but not the oil filter, and then again at 7500 and change the oil filter at that time. I maintain the same schedule through 7500, 15,000, 22,500, 30,000 and so on.

I use a high grade of motor oil... I have always liked Valvoline. But Quaker State, Pennzoil and other top brands are probably equally good. Stay away from the bargain brands. Quality lubrication is essential to your engine's longevity. In general you want it to look clear and green on the oil dipstick... when it starts getting dark, it's time to change it, and when it gets black it's way overdue.

The exception to this rule is that some synthetic oils which are black in appearance when new. And unlike foods, where "synthetic" is a dirty word, in motor oils, the synthetic variety offers better lubrication than the petroleum based "natural" oils and costs a good bit more as well. If you have an expensive car, it's probably well worth the extra cost for the higher quality motor oil.

People who ignore things like routine oil changes because they are too busy are very foolish. Dirty motor oil wears out an engine very quickly and failure to keep it clean may very likely void your warranty.

Transmission oil is another item. Factory service often doesn't require it be changed more than every 30,000 miles. But depending on how and where you drive it can get dirty and worn a lot quicker than than that. In general you want the fluid to appear cherry red and have almost no smell when you pull the transmission oil dipstick. When it is reddish brown and has a burnt smell, then your transmission is suffering. Many cars do not allow an easy change of the transmission fluid. It is often necessary to drop the pan of transmission to drain it, and then that usually holds 3-4 quarts and does not change the majority of the fluid which is in the torque converter.

Some cars like my Mercury Mountaineer, have a separate drain plug for the torque converter and allow a change of fluid to be relatively complete. But many others do not. My old Ford Explorer was that way. Changing the fluid by dropping the pan only changed 1/3 the transmission fluid, so if I waited til it was brown and burnt, one change did not do it. I installed a drain plug in my transmission pan, and changed it 5 times running it a few miles after each change, until I figured I had diluted the old burnt fluid adequately enough. So keep an eye on that fluid and change it often.

Manual transmissions don't use transmission fluid... they use a 90W gear oil which generally doesn't need to be changed very often. But keep your clutch adjusted properly with a little bit of freeplay at the top, and don't "ride the clutch". Be very careful about resting your foot on the clutch pedal as the weight of the foot can partially depress the pedal, and start to reach the edge of engagement, and this will wear out your clutch's throw-out bearing very quickly.

Older cars all used carburetors to mix gas and air and squirt it into the engine for combustion. Newer cars mostly use fuel injection, and while this often works really well and controls emissions, you need to keep those fuel injectors clean. Your local auto parts shop sells a number of brands of fuel injector cleaner and I recommend adding it to a full tank of gas at least with every oil change. It's a lot cheaper than having your fuel injection system overhauled. And change that air filter regularly or whenever it starts to appear dirty. Nothing slows performance more quickly and gunks up your carburetor or fuel injectors than a dirty air filter.

Tires, Brakes and Shock Absorbers

Other items like tires, brakes and shock absorbers are generally not covered by warranties... they are considered routine maintenance items. Choose your tires carefully... there are a wide range of tire grades, priced accordingly. Invariably those bargain prices you see advertised are junk tires and not worth your time unless you are just fixing the car up to sell. Many tires will offer long mileage warranties, but read the fine print... often that's "pro-rated" and applied to the "list" price of a new one, not the highly discounted price you bought them for. This is an old scam. Put 20,000 miles on those 50,000 mile tires and you may find the adjusted price of a new pair under warranty is higher than what you can buy them or a comparable set for outright.

In general, always buy tires at least in pairs. Never put one new tire on one wheel when the other has considerable wear. Generally, it's best to put your new tires on the front to take advantage of better steering and handling with a new tire. But if your car is rear wheel drive, be aware that badly worn tires in the back will cause your car to skid and lose control quickly in wet or slippery conditions. If you rotate your tires regularly, say every 7500 or 10,000 miles at least, then your tires should all wear out around the same time and it's best to replace all four as a set.

When putting on new tires, you should have them balanced and the front end aligned. Bad alignment or balance will wear out new tires much more quickly and can severely impact the handling and ride quality. Often, balancing tries when they are new, does not mean they will still be in balance after 5-10,000 miles. I like to buy my tires from a tire dealer that offers free rotation and rebalancing for the life of the tire. I look for tires which handle well in wet conditions and avoid aquaplaning. Those are usually high end steel belted all-weather radials which also work pretty well in snow as well.

Remember you life and that of your family is riding on your tires. Invest in good quality tires... it's a sound investment. And one more thing, these new "low profile" tires that look so cool on these sport sedans. The low profile means a short sidewall, which means little give and flex there which, while it can contribute to better handling, also means a stiffer less comfortable ride, and more wear on your suspension, since the tires are not absorbing the road irregularities as well, leaving it all up to the more expensive suspension parts.

Shock absorbers are another important and often overlooked component. Worn shocks mean faster tire and suspension wear, particularly the ball joints in the front end. It's relatively easy to check a shock's performance. Push down swiftly on the fender of your car over each of the four wheels. New shocks should be pretty stiff and recover from a hard shove with only a single rebound. If the car bounces up and down several times above the wheel, the shocks are worn and should be replaced. These are not expensive and a good tire dealer can stick in a quality set like Monroe Shocks for little more than $100 for all four on many models of cars.

Also not covered by most warranties, the brakes should be checked regularly (whenever you rotate your tires and replaced when they get low. Driving with worn brakes (typically they squeal badly when you come to a stop) will quickly score your brake rotors or drums and make replacing them essential as well as brake pads or brake shoes. Front brakes usually wear out first, and again depending on how you drive, you can probably expect to replace them every 30,000 miles or so. A good brake shop will turn the rotors or drums, replace the pads or brake shoes, and rebuilt the calipers or wheel cylinders as needed. If you replace them often and the rotors/drums look good, sometimes you can get away with just a new pair of shoes or pads.

Also keep an eye on your brake fluid under the hood. As the brakes pads or shoes wear, the fluid level will drop. That is normal, and you will need to add a bit of brake fluid from time to time. Be casrely not to spill any on the car's paint as it is highly corrosive and will eat through the paint in a matter of moments.

Car Paint and Interior

In order to preserve the value of your investment, you also want to maintain your car's finish and interior. Keep the car washed and clean. Be careful about automatic car washes. Many news ones do a fine job, but some of the older ones with stiff brushes can scratch your paint badly. If you can keep your car in a garage or under cover, do it. That old junk you have piled up in the garage while your $35,000 car sits out in weather is a poor investment decision. Remove bird droppings and tree

sap as quickly as you possibly can. I keep a plastic bottle with water and a soft rag in my trunk and wipe off bird droppings as soon as I notice them. The acid in there will eat into your paint very quickly and cause a blemish to that paint job. But blot don't rub. Bird droppings typically have sand in them and that can easily scratch your paint.

You can remove tree sap and road tar with turpentine or paint thinner from your hardware store. It won't hurt the paint and will quickly dissolve the sap or tar. But is also removes car wax so use it sparingly, and if you do it often, treat your car to a fresh turtle wax a few times a year. A freshly waxed car will cause water to bead up in little round beads on the surface. When those beads start to disappear it's time for another coat of wax. Wax will protect your car's paint, keep it from becoming porous and weathered and making the removal of things like bird droppings and sap much easier.

Remember factory paints are baked on and are in general much more durable than repaints. So it pays to keep up that factory paint job.

I like to use Armorall on the car's interior vinyl... it keeps it soft and pliable and prevents cracking and it looks sharp. I also highly recommend using some kind of a windshield protection screen in hot weather if you park out in the sun all day. It will keep the car's interior cooler and also protect the car's dash from cracking. And if your car has leather seats, treat them to a quality leather preservative on a regular basis. Nothing makes a car harder to sell than cracked worn leather seats.

Things To Do To Get Your Car Ready To Ship

Common sense and a few tips can make the rather daunting task of shipping a vehicle run more smoothly. Follow these steps to make sure that vehicle shipping results in a calm, cool and collected experience for you.

Start with a very clean car. You, along with the shipping company, are going to make a careful inspection of the vehicle together so you can note any damage that exists pre-shipment. Knowing the car's exact condition at pick up makes the final inspection not only easier, but more accurate.

Check to see that your car is running properly. This means that the car is in working condition and that the battery has a charge. There may be reason for your auto transporter to move your vehicle from one place to another. While they will likely have a means other than the cars own power to do this, it is easiest if the car runs. If your car does not run make sure to notify your shipper before pick up.

Remove all exterior attachments. This includes bike racks, spare tire covers, and even your car antenna if it does not retract. Anything that can easily be knocked off, or that can damage another car on the carrier should be removed. You should also remove any personal belongings that may be inside the vehicle. This includes global positioning systems, removable radios, and anything else that can be reasonably removed. The shipping company's insurance will not want to be responsible for anything other than your vehicle and chances are that they won't be.

Make sure that your car does not leak fluid of any variety. Your car may be on top of a car carrier and leaky fluids could drip onto lower cars. Some fluids are vary harmful to the environment and other cars and you wouldn't want to have your vehicle damaged by someone else's leaky car. Make sure that you show the other vehicle owners the same respect that you expect from them.

Have all your keys ready to hand over to the carrier. These may be the ignition key, the trunk key, the door key, the glove compartment key and the gas cap key among others. Put them all on one ring so none of them get separated and lost from the pack. Also disarm, or better yet, disconnect the alarm system if there is one.

Shipping your vehicle does not have to be a nightmare if you follow these simple steps. Have a nice trip.

The Basics About Motorcycle Tires

One of the most crucial parts of a motorbike is the motorcycle tires. As the only part that provides solid contact to the ground, it plays a huge part on how the whole motorcycle functions and runs. Therefore, every good motorcycle bike should have good, appropriate tires.

Each tire serves different purpose or usage. Basically the rear tire focuses more on the bikes acceleration power and carries most of the bikes weight, while the front tire is more focused on the braking power and provides controls on the desired direction.

To ensure maximum bike performance and increased safety of the bikers, it is crucial to have the appropriate tire. Picking the wrong type of tire could have an impact on the way the motorcycle drives. It can cause motorcycle owners a fortune by replacing or repairing its tire constantly or worst can lead to accidents.

When selecting the tires, it is important to remember certain criteria. The most basic thing to account in picking a tire would be the type of motorcycle you have and the type of riding you do. Tread style, tire bias, tire materials, size, speed and all other characteristics should all be designed for the needs of your motorbike. For instance, there are some tire tread patterns that are designed for different weather conditions, some can manage better grip on wet areas or there are some tire that are designed to withstand long distances. The point is, to choose mainly on the basis of your riding needs.

An essential part of a tire is its rubber compound. Thus, it determines the life and handling characteristics of the tire. It would range from a softer to a harder compound. Soft compound tires sticks on the road and provides riders with good grip while the harder the compound the longer its life expectancy.

For cruiser bikes which are ridden for long distances a harder compound is more appropriate. It would eventually extend the life of the tire. But if you are into sports bike then a softer compound is best since it provides extreme grip and good handling. A soft compound is stickier and is made for aggressive street riding.

There are different types of tires for different types of motorcycles. There are tires designed for sports, touring, cruising and racing and to different weather conditions. What may be the bikes application, a corresponding tire is associated to it.

Sports motorcycle tires have tread patterns that are radial in style thus giving it a larger tire print. It is has a flatter appearance and its sidewalls are shorter. It is made to run hard on the road. For tires used in racing it is designed to withstand high speed under hours of use in the track. For Cruiser tires it uses bias-ply which is round and is made up of nylon and rayon cords. It is designed for superior grip but when too much heat is generated the tire decrease performance and breaks down rapidly. While for touring tires it has a harder type of rubber compound for long lasting durability. It is specifically designed for long mileages.

Turbochargers For Your Automobile

Turbochargers have four main components out of which two are major for carrying out its work efficiently. The turbine and compressor are two major components of a turbocharger that helps in increasing the efficiency of an engine. If you want to add an extra boost and supply to your automobile and car then adding or replacing your turbocharger parts is must. Turbocharger parts are the main backbone of turbocharger working and your engine's horsepower. Turbo charger parts and inventories are available to replace your old functioning parts into a complete new one. With replacement of turbocharger and supercharger parts, you can increase three most important things of your automobile: Speed, efficiency and horsepower or torque.

Why turbocharger is essential?

Cars like Subaru, Mitsubishi Lancer, Dodge Neon all use turbo charger for dignifying their speed and efficiency in comparison to other cars available in the market. Turbocharger is the peak of your automobile which makes your functioning easy and steady. Turbocharger is back into the engine place of most budget cars and it is sure to stamp a place in the entire automobile industry. From aviation to sports car, turbochargers are making a place to stay in. turbochargers are inexhaustible and hence more powerful than that of superchargers also.

Turbo kit or turbo charger parts are necessary for keeping your engine update. In simple words a turbocharger is just an air pump inhaler or compressor which is forced by exhaust air in the engine. It is always better to have a turbocharged engine than those non-turbocharged engines into your cars and automobiles. Updating turbocharger parts are must for a smooth long run efficiency of your automobiles or car and thus while buying or ordering turbocharger and supercharger parts for your engine, you must always look on the warranty, guarantee and quality matters.

Many companies online are shipping turbocharger parts and even supercharger parts including nose cones with best affordable prices; you must rely on few no.1 companies or shipping company in turbocharger industry online. You can view different products and read the features on your desktop screen rather than moving out for a shop by wasting time. Save time and money by ordering your turbocharger and supercharger parts online. They make all your expenses fewer by giving you leisure shopping facility.

Different cars need different turbocharger parts, most of the cars are in need of updating turbocharger parts like Audi and Saab. Supercharger parts include supercharger and nose cones inventories for Mitsubishi turbo parts and many more. With advanced technology and need it is must to check your car efficiency and replace the turbocharger parts if necessary. It helps in maintaining your car's life span and working efficiency and functionality. As food is necessary for making our body function necessary the same way- your car or automobile's engine function needs update and efficient working parts for a long run. A good car is known by its engine efficiency and hence if you doubt your car's efficiency then you must replace your turbo parts.

Car Speakers: Tunes For The Road

Driving can be miserable if it is boring and seems like a job. Most people enjoy driving, but usually only if they can listen to music. It provides entertainment, while still letting them drive safely. It is nowhere near as dangerous as talking on a cell phone or texting while driving. Car radios are geared for safety. They make them easy for the driver to use and make changes by just pushing a button. If you have an MP3 player, you can even use it to play music of your choice. The most important thing to have, though, is a great set of car speakers.

A lot of people do not like to drive if they cannot listen to music, while doing so. But, if the sound quality is bad, then there is really no point. You can buy vehicles with great built-in stereos, but most have very poor speakers. No matter how good the music, it will still sound terrible. Speaker quality can really affect your enjoyment factor.

The ones that come installed in vehicles are usually not of very high quality. They will provide basic sound, but little else. For a real music experience, you have to invest in better quality speakers. In most cases, there are a few choices available that will just add to the price of the car. Sometimes, they are not much better, though. In this case, you have to shop elsewhere. This necessitates taking care of your own installation.

If you are not happy with them, however, you can pick up a set on your own. The main difference is the price and that you must have them installed. You can either do it yourself or pay someone to do so. You may want to remember to factor that into the price.

For the most accurate listening, subwoofers should be used. They allow you to really fine-tune what you are listening to. Every bass note and inflection is true and resonant. Good speakers mean you never miss a moment of your favorite song. You can enjoy the as much in your car as at a live show.

There are not as many possible options with regular, basic speakers. This can also create problems with the audio levels. Quieter sounds are much harder to hear. Louder ones can become tinny and sound odd.

Sometimes, it is necessary to put as much thought into your car stereo as one for your home. Music is only fun to listen to, if it sounds true and every note can be heard. Using online searches can make finding the rights ones a lot easier. You can read consumer or professional reviews of various models. This can save you time in comparing prices and sound quality.

Whatever you decide is best for you, you do want car speakers that you know you will enjoy. A long drive without good sound can be very boring. People love to drive and music just makes it even more fun.
