What Does A Turbocharged Car Deal Look Like?

Owning a car is a necessary yet expensive hazard of being a grown-up. Whether you want to get to and from work as quickly as possible or need space to load the kids, it’s hard to manage without a vehicle. So, finding the best possible deal is a must as the running costs will add up in the long run. Plus, that’s not to mention the breakdown expenses, as well as the fluctuating petrol and tax rates. Yes, you can shop around for an affordable insurance policy once you own a car, but first, it’s about milking the dealer for every penny.

To help you, here are the factors that constitute a turbocharged deal.

High Trade-In Value

The majority of motorists already have a car to use as leverage during the negotiations. And, you should trade-in your vehicle to reduce the upfront price of the car that you want to buy. However, getting the full amount isn’t as simple as asking a dealership for a quote. If they don’t give you a low figure, they’ll add the expenses elsewhere to make back the money. Therefore, it’s essential to watch out for excessive dealer fees or a trumped-up warranty that’s unnecessary. A fantastic tip is to sell your car outright to avoid dealers and their sneaky tricks.

Profit Margin Quotes

Almost every estimate that a buyer gets is based on the listing price that the seller sets. However, a better option is to negotiate a discount based on retail price, which is what the dealer paid for the vehicle. Initially, the reduction might not seem as high if what they paid is more than the listing price. But, keep in mind that the discount applies to any car that is the same make or model, or from the same manufacturer. If the car you want doesn’t have as many “high-end” features, the RP will be lower and the discount will lead to bigger savings.

Practical Perks

Sellers have all kinds of perks that they like to throw in to show that they are going the extra mile. Of course, some of them aren’t applicable to you, and that means you pay more because you don’t get your money’s worth. For example, a longer warranty is more useful than roadside assistance if you already have it with your insurer or bank. A superior protection plan for car owners is about paying less for maintenance and repairs. Although it sounds obvious, motorists will accept add-ons as goodwill gestures regardless. Now, you know that ineligible perks are expensive.

Car Comparisons

You have a vehicle in mind and don’t want to buy another one. Still, it’s worth using another, similar car as leverage. How? By taking elements of the vehicle at a competing lot and using it to lower the price. Does the model you want have more miles on the clock? If so, let the seller know that you’re leaning towards purchasing the alternative listing as the engine is tighter. This should encourage them to reduce the price, even though you had no intention of going with another model.

Do you think you can craft an incredible deal now you know the tricks of the trade?

Get a Lower Rate on Your Car Insurance

pexels

Car insurance is a cost all drivers have to fork out for because unfortunately, it is necessary to protect yourselves and your car. It can be difficult for new drivers and others in high-risk categories to get a good rate on your premium. Here are some simple tips to help you reduce your car insurance as much as possible. 

Shop around

There are plenty of price comparison sites which can help you compare different offers and find the best one for you. Take your time and do your research.

Don’t opt for auto-renewal

Car insurance companies don’t tend to reward loyalty for some reason so you’ll never get a better offer than your first one. They tend to make better deals to lure new customers but you could even end up paying more your second year so it’s a better idea just to change company. Give yourself some flexibility and freedom. 

Add an experienced driver

If you’re a new driver or in a high-risk category due to your age or inexperience, try adding a more responsible driver to your premium. This will help to reduce your rate as they will be considered a safer and more reliable option. Don’t commit “fronting” however and take out the insurance primarily in their name. This is fraud and will punishable by law. Once you have a blip on your car insurance it’ll be very difficult to get a good deal, if any again. 

Tweak your job title

This is a technique used to make you sound like you have more responsibility in your job, without actually lying of course. Some titles carry more weight, whether this is fair or not, and appear more impressive. Compare, “teacher” with “guitar teacher”, for example, or “construction worker” and “builder”. You can change the name without lying about what you do, as it’s very important to be honest about everything on your car insurance application. There are many interesting ways in how your job title can affect your car insurance, in fact, certain jobs are considered higher risk than others and won’t be offered a lower rate. 

Go used

Opting for a used car can reduce your car insurance premium. New cars face a dramatic depreciation as soon as they leave the dealership. They rapidly decrease in value in the first few years. Used cars will have already been through this depreciation process, so you won’t have to pay “gap” insurance which is on the calculated difference between the original price and the depreciated value. 

Avoid accidents
A sure-fire way to get a good deal on your car insurance is by becoming a safer driver. Don’t speed or slam on the brakes, keep that road rage under wraps and stay in control. If the unfortunate does happen to be sure to consult experts in auto body repair such Alan Byer Collision. Have regular checks on your car and keep up your maintenance. This will also save you money on costly repairs in the future.

Driving Habits We Need To Stop

Ok, so you have been driving for some time, and you think you’re a great driver, right? Well, the chances are, like most people that have been driving for some time, you are probably guilty of many things that, in fact, make you quite a bad driver.

Now, before you get rather angry and think we are throwing out general accusations, don’t worry, the truth is, most of us are bad drivers, and there are many things we all do that are not only stupid, but some of them are dangerous and quite possibly illegal.

In this post, we are going to be looking at a few bad driving habits we all possibly do and why we need to stop them as soon as possible.

Why We Have Driving Habits

The truth is, while many people often see new drivers as the worst drivers on the road, they are generally a lot better than they are given credit for.

If you think back to the times when you were a new driver, you possibly did everything by the book and followed every rule of the road. It seems that things only change as we get more comfortable and confident behind the wheel.

In the next section, we will look at some of those nasty habits we pick up as we become more experienced drivers.

Speeding 

Ok, so the first thing we are going to touch on is speeding. Now, while most of you are possibly thinking that you do not speed, the chances are you are thinking about excessive speed.

While this is more dangerous, it isn’t what we are talking about today. What we are asking is how many of us are guilty of driving 40 in a 30 zone? It seems that if we were all honest, we might find that it’s well over 90% of us. 

While the extra speed may not seem like a lot, what you may not know is that even a few kmph can mean the difference between life and death if we hit somebody in the car.  

Having Your Phone Out In The Car

Another thing nearly all of us are guilty of is doing something with our phones when driving. While in the past it may have been deemed to be ok to use your phone when in the car, long gone are those days, and now we see more and more fatalities on the road, and they are mainly down to your phone.

While we all know that it’s bad enough to talk on the phone when driving, there are some people who still don’t realize the dangers of texting while driving, if you really want to get out of this habit, then you are encouraged to place your phone in the glovebox for the journey, and you should also have on smart driving solutions that stop you from using your phone when in your car.

There are, of course, so many more bad habits that we all have, if this has inspired you to look within and make a few changes, perhaps you will go on to try and shake a few more of those nasty little driving habits that you may have.

Why Should You Start Cycling to Work?

image

Considering biking to work? There are so many great reasons why you should- here’s why you need to dust off your bicycle from the shed. 

Health benefits

There’s no denying the health benefits of cycling. It works out your heart and lungs giving you a great cardiovascular workout which improves endurance, and the pedal action also sculpts and tones the glutes, calves and thighs- also the arms and back to a lesser extent. It’s low impact meaning unlike jogging you won’t irritate muscles, joints or ligaments and it’s something that most people can do providing they own a bike. If you’re looking to lose weight, tone up or just improve your fitness levels then hopping on your bike and cycling to and from work is a great option to consider.

Gets your morning off to a good start

The way we start our morning can really impact the way the rest of the day seems to go. Spend your day standing waiting for late buses or on a crowded commuter train then your stress levels will probably be through the roof by the time you get into the office. Hop on your bike and take a relaxed ride to work and you’ll boost endorphins and energise yourself, providing your route isn’t overly challenging. Lots of workplaces encourage cycling to work and will let you shower once you arrive if you’re worried about turning up sweaty, speak to your manager about this. 

Eco benefits

Driving to work of course has negative impacts on the environment, you only need to take a look at any busy area at rush hour to realise just how many cars are on the road and to think of all of the pollution they’re pumping out. By cycling to work you’re doing your small bit to reduce pollution from these journeys, it might not seem much in the grand scheme of things but all any of us can do is be responsible for our own carbon footprint. As more and more people start getting on board with these kinds of things, the joint effort all adds up in a huge way to help the planet. 

A word of warningCycling has so many benefits, but it’s important to weigh up the risks too. If your route involves lots of busy roads at rush hour for example then it might not be the best option for you. It doesn’t take a trucking crash expert to realise that any collision between a bicycle and heavy vehicle is going to have disasterous consequences for the cyclist so do be careful. If it’s still dark when you leave for work your bike will need a light, wear a hi vis jacket and always wear a helmet. If your route seems especially dangerous then maybe consider other options for getting to work instead

Ford Is Developing A Crazy New Cyclist Safety Technology

Cyclists are at high risk on the road and need to have their wits about them. Just like motorcyclists, they’re particularly prone to collisions, with little or no mitigation. 

Pixabay – CC0 License

Now American car manufacturer Ford is developing a solution. It proposes to add an early warning system to cars that will tell drivers when a cyclist is approaching in their blind spot. Using some twenty or so cameras around the vehicle, the vehicle will be able to see where cyclists are at all times and then issue an alert. Ford’s idea at the moment is to make the wing mirrors and edges of their vehicles with strips of LEDs that will flash red when they detect an oncoming cyclist. Under the current plans, both the driver and the cyclist will be able to see the lights and hear an alarm sound. 

Ford’s new concept also deals with another common problem – opening car doors in the path of oncoming cyclists. Sensors on the vehicle will detect a cyclist approaching and prevent the person inside the car from opening the door until they pass. The hope is that the system will prevent people from inadvertently opening their doors in the path of a cyclist. 

More Respect On The Road

Ford’s plans, however, are about more than just reducing the number of accidents. They are also geared towards generating more respect on the road. The automaker hopes that the technology will help drivers and cyclists understand each other’s needs better. 

Currently, the company says, there’s a lack of understanding between the two groups. Drivers don’t want cyclists on the road and vice versa. Ford hopes that the new technology will help people to share the streets so that everyone can benefit. 

Ford Is Not The First To Have This Idea

Ford isn’t the first company in the world to trial this kind of technology. People have fitted some vehicles in the US with this technology already, especially on public transport where blind spots can be quite large. 

As technology changes, so too will the role of the car accident lawyer. As batteries become more versatile, we’re likely to see an explosion of transport options. Ebikes, for instance, will become much more common on the roads because of their low running costs and high performance. Legal professionals will need to take these new types of cases into account. 

Automakers such as Ford also need to respond by designing cars for this new environment. As the above example makes clear, driver error isn’t the only issue. Passenger oversight could also play a significant role too. Insurance companies need to factor this into their calculations in the future. 

When Is The New Tech Coming?

Ford hasn’t set a date for the release of the new technology yet. We’re still very much in the testing phase. The company, however, says that it will continue to develop the concept over the coming months and hopes to create a viable product. 

How exactly the vehicle will light up remains a matter for debate. Some designers imagine an emoji-style system where faces light upon the wing mirrors and doors to warn both drivers, passengers and cyclists of the danger.

Tesla Motors Is Going To Dominate In The 2020s. Get Ready

Just a couple of years ago, short-sellers like Jim Chanos were announcing that it was the end of Tesla. There hadn’t been a new, successful car company in the US for nearly one hundred years. And there certainly wasn’t going to be one based on the laughable concept of electric vehicles. 

Now though, it is Tesla founder Elon Musk who is rubbing his hands together with glee, with the short-sellers running from their positions with their tails between their legs. The enigmatic entrepreneur seems to have pulled off the impossible: create a profitable car company that people love. 

Pixabay – CC0 License

The story of Tesla, however, doesn’t end with the company’s current $500-plus share price. Many analysts, including those who focus on disruptive change, think it could go to $5000 by the end of the 2020s, maybe more. 

Why is this? How can a “car company” increase in value so much over a decade? 

Elon Musk Holds All The Cards

The critical thing to understand about Tesla is that the company holds all the cards that it needs to create the most compelling automotive product that the world has ever seen. 

Consider first, the fact that Tesla makes all its own batteries. It’s not going to some third-party vendor who also sells cells to the rest of the automotive world. Instead, it makes them all itself, using proprietary technology that nobody else can access. It’s why the California-based firm can build cars that will drive more than 350 miles on a single charge while its competitors are struggling to get about 150. When it comes to batteries, it’s miles ahead of the game. 

Pixabay – CC0 License

Now consider the company’s over-the-air updates. Teslas are the only cars in the world that get BETTER the longer you own them. All Tesla needs to do is create a new software package that adds features and drivers can immediately feel the benefits.

These updates can be practically anything. Most of the time, they’re improved driving assist features, but nothing is stopping Tesla from adding entertainment options, voice control, and other stuff that adds to drivers’ quality of life. 

Tesla is also a monopoly. It sounds strange to say given how many car companies that there are in the world, but bear with me. The company is the only firm in the world, producing luxury electric vehicles for the western market at scale. Traditional automakers aren’t there yet. More importantly, Tesla is a transportation solutions firm, not a car company in the old-fashioned sense. It’s more akin to Uber or Lyft, but with manufacturing facilities to make its own vehicles. 

If you find that hard to swallow, your perceptions will change over the coming decades. The best Tesla trip planner app won’t be the traditional rideshare companies; it’ll be for the company’s electric vehicles. And these won’t have human pilots. Tesla will create software that allows its cars to drive themselves, collect passengers, and form part of a massive fleet of vehicles, providing low-cost rides across the world. 

This feature of Tesla’s business model is the real genius of their entire operation. If they can perfect autonomous taxi technology, they don’t need customers willing to put $60,000 down on a vehicle. Instead, they just need people willing to pay $5 for a ride across town. Tesla will then be in a race to get cars on the road. If customers want to rent out their Teslas to the public and to share an income with Tesla, they can do that. If they’re not willing to use their cars while they’re idle, then Tesla will sell cars to itself and create an in-house fleet. This group of vehicles will then serve the general public, just as Uber and Lyft do today, but at a much lower cost. 

Autonomy Is The Real Game-Changer

Autonomous technology is the real game-changer for Tesla. Forget the engineering, battery tech, and electric drivetrain – the thing that is really going to make the difference to the company’s business model over the next ten years is the rise of cars that drive themselves. Tesla will be able to use this technology to produce vehicles that have intrinsic value before it even sells them to customers. Each car, the company estimates, will be able to generate a lifetime revenue of $300,000 in today’s terms. For the first time in history, a company will sell a vehicle that adds to its customers’ wealth. 

Think for a second, too, about how this will change the lending side of the equation. In typical situations, a person has to work to recoup the money that they borrow when they purchase a vehicle. Firms providing loans take on substantial risk. They need to ensure that the borrower pays back the loan faster than their car is depreciating to make sure that they don’t lose money if they have to repossess. 

The same is not true of a Tesla of the future. A lender knows that the car will continue to generate money as it goes forward. Even if the borrower can’t pay, the lender can take back ownership of the vehicle and use it to make money. 

Pixabay – CC0 License

When you think about this fact, the economics of buying a Tesla starts to look a bit crazy. We could see a situation where people who hold capital buy as many Teslas as they can so they can benefit from the returns. Lenders could pay people to own Teslas, so long as they rent them out to the public. The possibilities are truly bizarre!

The Space Factor

The final part of the equation is Elon Musk’s other pet project: Spacex. SpaceX is going to become the biggest private company in the world over the next couple of decades, thanks to its Starlink effort. Global internet satellites will change communications across the globe. 

Tesla, however, will benefit from Spacex because vehicles will be able to get internet wherever they go on the planet, including rural locations. 

The electric car maker, therefore, is positioned to become the most valuable firm in the world — what a turnaround from a couple of years ago.

Effective Ways To Reduce Car Repair Expenses

Everyone knows how expensive car ownership can be. Automobile experts and non-drivers alike understand that the cost of driving is typically quite high. There are many expenses that drivers must cover, including insurance, fuel, and even cleaning. Car repair is another expense that can easily cost you a small fortune. This cost is among the most frustrating too, as most repairs can be prevented. If you’re worried about the cost of repairs, here are six effective ways to save. 

Credit To – CC0 License

Read The Owner’s Manual

An effective way to lower car repair costs is to prevent car repairs. Although accidents can cause serious damage, most car troubles are the result of poor maintenance. Because of this, you should read your owner’s manual, paying close attention to the maintenance schedule. Following this schedule will help to keep your car in good condition, preventing breakdowns. 

Put Yourself To Work

Owning a vehicle is a huge responsibility. Along with driving safely, you must look after the car. Most mechanics will happily carry out any maintenance or repair tasks for you if you ask them to, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they should. There are countless repairs you can DIY, such as replacing dead batteries. Carrying out these repairs yourself will work out much cheaper. 

Find The Right Mechanic

When you come across a repair you can’t handle, allowing an expert to help makes sense. After all, you don’t want to cause any additional damage. However, before handing over your keys, you should research the mechanic you’ve chosen. Having customers and the right insurance doesn’t make a mechanic good. Finding a reputable expert is sure to save you money in the long run. 

Hunt For Cheaper Parts

Having to replace a part will significantly increase the cost of any repair. That is why you should source the parts yourself. Whether you need Mercedes, Audi, or Porsche parts, you must hunt for them online. Not only does this give you an option to purchase second-hand parts, but brand new parts typically work out cheaper too. Just search for what you need and compare prices. 

Make Use Of Warranties

Any vehicle purchased from a dealership usually comes with a warranty. This warranty might cover the entire car or certain parts, and could come with a limited or lifetime guarantee. To learn what guarantee you have, you should check your receipt or contact the dealership. If your vehicle is still in warranty, make sure you take it to that dealership any time you need repairs carried out.

Slow Down Your Driving

Driving efficiently will help to keep your vehicle healthy. Sticking to the speed limit and avoiding harsh braking will not only prevent car trouble but reduce the likelihood of car accidents too. Whether you passed your driving test last week or several decades ago, there is always room for improvement. Consider how you could be a better driver and take the actions necessary. 

Vehicle repairs can easily cost a small fortune, but with the effective advice above, you can reduce the expense and lower your motoring costs.

What’s Wrong With My Car? Things To Look For When Your Car Just Isn’t Right

Having a car, especially at this time of the year is a blessing. You can travel quickly and efficiently without having to worry about relying on public transport or worse – getting cold from walking everywhere. So, when something goes wrong with your car, it can be rather distressing and again, at this time of the year the last thing anyone needs is another expense. If your car isn’t sounding or feeling right you should always take it to the mechanic before it escalates into something bigger. However, there are things that you can look for yourself and fix without the need of a mechanic at all. Check out these things to look for when your car just isn’t right.

Your car is using more fuel than normal

It’s easy to drive further than normal and wonder why your fuel tank is emptying faster than normal. However, if this is a regular occurence and you’re not travelling any further than you normally would, there could be a number of causes:

  • Your tyres need pumping up. Flat tyres need to work harder to move your car across the roads, therefore using more fuel. Pump up your tyres for optimum fuel consumption.
  • Check for leaks when you’ve been parked for a considerable amount of time. Quite often owners don’t realise their car even has a leak until they’ve parked in one spot for a longer period of time!
  • Drive slower! We know how tempting it is to put the pedal to the floor on an open road. However, you’ll be using much more fuel than normal. Stick to moderate speeds as much as possible and you’ll notice your fuel consumption drop.

Your car is making an unusual noise

There’s nothing worse than hearing your car make an unusual noise but often there are simple fixes that you can try before taking your car to the garage:

  • Check your oil level. Too much or too little oil in your car can cause it to make strange ticking noises. Filling your oil is simple and cheap to do. This could also be affecting your performance transmissions, so be sure to keep on top of this.
  • Check for holes in your exhaust pipe as this can create loud sounds. If you find one, take your car to your mechanic as soon as possible.
  • If you hear a high pitched whining noise, it may be your wheel bearings or even flat tyres. 

Your car has lost power

Your car losing power is quite an alarming symptom to arise. However, if you’ve got a car that usually has a turbo it might be worth turning your inertia switch off, leaving it for ten minutes and then turning it back on again. This can often restart your turbo and bring your car back.

Remember that if you’re worried about your car it’s always best to let a mechanic take a look. Troubleshooting these ideas however, could save you a trip to the garage and a bill this side of Christmas.

Audiophile: Getting The Best Sound Wherever You Go

red and blue discs

(Image Source)

Speakers have been around for a very long time, and this market has been developing steadily since their inception. The products available on the modern market are a far cry from those which people were using in the past, with things like digital music and wireless technology shaping the market into something new. Of course, though, with a market so broad and expensive, a lot of people resort to using the first options they can get their hands on. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring audio, and the simplest ways to improve your listening experience without spending a small fortune.

Personal Listening

Listening to music on your own gives you an excellent opportunity to use devices like headphones. These products offer a better experience and a lower price than speakers, though you have to be careful with what you buy. Modern wireless headphones sacrifice quality to be able to provide you with their advanced features. This makes wired headphones a much better option for those on a budget, and this is before you even consider the difference between in-ear and over-ear headphones. Over-ear examples are often offer better value for money, though a lot of people will want the convenience of something smaller.

At Home

Being able to listen to music at home is a treat, and a lot of people like to do this using speakers instead of headphones. Modern smart speakers are great for those who want a touch of convenience, though you will often find the best sound quality if you go back a few years. eBay is filled to the brim with old hifi equipment, and you only need a set of speakers and an amp or receiver to get yourself started. It’s worth doing some learning before using hardware like this, as it can be quite complicated to set up, but most people would agree that the sound which comes from setups like this is far better value than a lot of modern products.

In The Car

Cars can present some challenges when listening to music. Unlike a square or rectangular room, your vehicle is likely to be an awkward shape for sound to travel around. There are a lot of products on the market which have been designed to combat this, and you can read Alpine car amplifier reviews, along with resources surrounding all of the other parts you’ll need, around the web. Each car will have its own procedure to install speakers, though YouTube should be able to teach you everything you need, and any facia panels you require can be bought on sites like eBay and Amazon.

With all of this in mind, you should be feeling ready to take on the challenge of getting the best sound wherever you are. It isn’t always easy to listen to music, though most people enjoy this sort of pastime, making it well worth putting the time and effort to ensure that you can get the most out of it.

A Lifelong Journey: Learning How To Be A Better Driver When Everyone Else Is Terrible!

Pixabay – CC0 Licence

How much time do you spend behind the wheel of a car? It’s something that most of us have to do, whether it’s for your job or you’re the only one in your household that can do it. And over time, it can serve to increase our frustration, but also, if we want to get anywhere, we start to imitate those around us and take their terrible skills on board. Before we know it, our ability to drive goes down the drainpipe, and it’s because everyone around us is operating in the same haphazard manner. But driving better doesn’t have to be a difficult thing to attain; and if you really want to make a difference on the road, improve your commute, or just feel less stressed behind the wheel, try a few of these approaches… 

Truly Get An Appreciation Of Everyone Else Around You

As drivers, we can be absurdly single-minded, and only focus on our journey. But this means we don’t get a true appreciation of what’s going on around us. Sometimes we have to get a different perspective, and we can do this in simple ways. We could get a dual dash cam, which is something that many drivers now utilize on the road, not just to recognize the idiots that are causing near misses but also, giving ourselves an appreciation of the things we might very well not have noticed on the journey. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, and if we can get a better perception of what’s going on around us, it’s the perfect place to start.

Stop Speeding 

We start to imitate others around us because we feel that pressure. And when it comes to something like speeding, if everybody else is doing 5 miles over the limit, and they are doing that passive-aggressive thing to you because they’re stuck behind you and you were “only” going the limit, that temptation to speed up can develop into a full-blown habit. Speed limits are there for a reason. If you stop speeding, you’re not going to cause an accident, and you won’t have your license taken off you!

Stop Being In A Hurry

We are forever in a rush to get somewhere, and we witness this by the people risking their lives to take over us on a quiet road, but there’s a lesson to be learned here. If we are forever in a rush, then clearly we’re not leaving enough time to get to our destination, but also, being in a rush means we start to take risks that we wouldn’t if we had more time. It’s something you see all of the time. People cutting across all four lanes to get to an exit, and this is such a major mistake that could cause one massive accident, but the lesson is simple, if you are always in a hurry, bad habits will always up.

And probably the biggest lesson we can all learn is to address our own bad habits. One of the best ways to do this is, unfortunately, to have them checked by a professional. Being a good driver isn’t just about passing your test, it is a lifelong journey.
