    The 2020 Toyota Supra Is the Proper Sports Car It Needs to Be

    Tetsuya Tada, the 2020 Toyota Supra's chief engineer, can be cagey. He shrewdly avoids being nailed down about the range of the car's electrically assisted variable-ratio steering rack or its engine's peak boost. He won't say if this Supra is quicker around a track than the Porsche 718 Cayman S...

    The EU Wants Cars To Have Speed Limiters and More by 2022

    It seems that politicians believe driver training or road maintenance won't improve anytime soon, so instead they want to limit your car's engine power to make sure you don't break the speed limit while robots determine whether you're fit to drive in the first place. At least that's the proposed...

    Buick Displays Three New SUVs At Auto Shanghai 2019

    Flushing The Coolant

    You know I've never seen any exact amount of time for this. I think a lot depends on driving conditions. I know you can purchase a PH level litmus test at most auto parts stores to test it. I have heard every 50,000 miles, and I've heard ever year, or every other year. Most of it will be...

    I used to carry an extra key in my wallet, but that was long before they started making the larger keys. The wife keeps the valet key with her as she has locked her keys in her car a few times.
