Kenya’s new car sales jump 18 pct in 2014 – Yahoo News

The growth of Kenya’s middle class is spurring demand for cars, said Rita Kavashe, who chairs the Kenya Vehicle Manufacturers Association and is managing director of General Motors East Africa unit. “There is demand for services like food distribution so you have a lot of light commercial trucks coming into that sector,” she told Reuters. Commercial vehicles, like light trucks and mini-buses, make up the bulk of Kenya’s new car market. New local authorities that came into existence in 2013 have also been buying, Kavashe said, while a construction boom was boosting demand for heavy-duty trucks.

New Jersey Bans 19 Motor Oil Products « CBS New York

Patrol Union President Accuses de Blasio Of Lacking Respect For Police

Many of these allegedly mislabeled motor oils are sold at cheap prices, thereby luring those consumers who can least afford the extra maintenance costs or early engine failure that may result from using the wrong type of motor oil, Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman said in a statement. We are rightly removing these potentially harmful products from New Jerseys marketplace, and will penalize retailers who continue to sell them. Mechanic Freddy Rivas told CBS2s Sonia Rinconan oil with the wrong viscosity can slowly destroy your car with each oil change. You create a film, on the cylinder, and that creates a protective shield, Rivas said. But with these oils you lose that, so what happens is youre grinding the piston up and down and youre actually wearing out the engine. State Consumer Affairs Director Steve Lee said the now-banned products were usually found in gas stations, 99 cent stores, and mini marts, WCBS 880s Levon Putney reported.

The interior’s by far the best of any Mazda to date, new SKYACTIV engines deliver strong performance with low emissions, and the diesel is exceptional. Its victory in one of the most significant categories in the SCOTY awards reinforces just how compelling a proposition the all-new Mazda3 makes for both private buyers and company car drivers in Scotland. With a 36-strong model range priced from 16,995 to 23,745 on-the-road (OTR), the new Mazda Hatchback/Fastback combines striking, KODO design with highly-advanced SKYACTIV engineering. The premium quality, ergonomically-superb interior sets new standards for mobile connectivity with the debut of Mazda’s MZD Connect system, which works with compatible smartphones to seamlessly integrate online social media and internet radio using Aha; a cloud-based app with a wide range of free, web-based, infotainment content*. A choice of 1.5-litre 100ps petrol engine or 2.0-litre with either 120ps or 165ps power output, and a 2.2-litre 150ps turbodiesel provides an ideal blend of power and frugality. The powertrains’ advanced and lightweight SKYACTIV technologies deliver up to 72.4mpg in the combined cycle, whilst generating emissions as low as just 104g/km**.

All-New Mazda3 scoops ‘Family Car’ at the 2014 SCOTY Awards

The savings in your dry cleaning bill alone will make it worth ticking that option box. Audi flagship sedan Rumors about a new Audi flagship sedan, tentatively dubbed the A9, have been circulating for a while; and the company chose to fan the flames at the LA Auto Show with a striking concept car called the Prologue. Audis Head of Design Marc Lichte called it a foretaste of the future of Audi. Ostensibly, its a showcase for the companys future design language, but it also happens to be a runner (drivable prototype); and it features all of the high-tech and performance hardware needed to step up and play in the majors, including an instrument panel that is all one large touch display, and a 605-horsepower turbocharged engine under the hood. Theres also a system Audi calls the butler that identifies driver and passengers based on their smartphones and adjusts the seats and climate-control system according to their preferences. The system also networks the smartphones of passengers to the vehicle infotainment system and automatically re-charges them.

1953 Lancia Aurelia PF200 C Spider $1 million to $1.5 million 1953 Lancia Aurelia PF200 C Spider was inspired by the jet-age designs that were popular in cars at the time. RM Auctions Inspired by the jet-age designs of the 1950s, with a nose reminiscent of the U.S. Air Force Sabrejet from that era,only 98 chassis used by the PF200 Spider were made. The unique design led to orders of similar bodyworks on American-made chassis, including one ordered by jazz artist Norman Granz , who wanted a similar body on a Cadillac chassis. A factory fire destroyed many records related to the PF200, but it is believed that only eight of these were even built and only four exist today.

Having The Biggest Bang For Your Buck When Searching For An Auto

Are you currently investing in a new vehicle? Do you want some methods to guarantee the experience fun and uncomplicated? This information will offer you some terrific advice on that can help to produce your purchase simple and easy enjoyable. Read on to learn more about painless car shopping.

Get yourself a car loan lined up prior to going shopping. When you have the loan pre-arranged, then a process is a lot easier.

If buying from the private individual, let a mechanic look at it before buying it. In the event the seller doesn’t enable the mechanic, take that warning sign to heart. The vehicle you are considering may need newer parts or might even have costly issues which make it worth a lot less in comparison to the price tag. You don’t want to purchase it without knowing more.

Take time to research your dealer before making an offer on a car. You will have much more room for negotiation when you know with regards to their strategies. Reading customer feedback could also offer you the best way to avoid scams or pitfalls.

If you’re buying your vehicle through a private party, make certain your mechanic checks the vehicle before cash trades hands. When the seller doesn’t allow the mechanic, this can be cause of real concern. The vehicle you are looking at might need new parts or may possibly have costly issues that make it worth less compared to price tag. You should not buy in to these without knowing more.

Bring someone along on your car shopping trip. This is often any relative, relative or spouse.

Never exceed the most quantity of this budget, regardless of how much pressure you obtain through the dealer.

Don’t ever go above that limit, even when a salesman tries to convince one to.

Check out a car show to check out which cars you are searching for. Auto shows really are a unique opportunity to compare different cars to one another. You can also talk to many car experts all in the same place.

Be cautious about giving people your personal information. Some dealers asks with this info upfront to enable them to ruin your credit. Usually do not give you the dealer along with your identification information till you have agreed on terms.

Now, you’re willing to get an amazing car. Acquiring a car you enjoy is crucial. Utilize the advice that you just read to help you get the car of your dreams.
