Car Driving Tip of the Month
(September 2018)
COMBINE TRIPS

Planning your errands and activities in advance will increase your car’s fuel efficiency and save you some cash. Fuse your errands into one trip, and try to combine it with an activity. Stop at the grocery store on the way home from work. Pick-up the dry cleaning before you head to yoga class.

Taking short trips back and forth not only puts extra stress on your car, with the current high gas prices, it also puts stress on your wallet. Extra trips can use up to twice as much fuel than a longer integrated trip covering the same distance. Not only that, but planning your trip ahead of time allows you to pick shorter rotes and ones that avoid gridlock, and wasteful idle time.

For the past few years, autonomous electric concepts have been all the rage on the international auto show circuit.

One Week With: 2018 Porsche Panamera 4S Sport Turismo (Fri, 21 Sep 2018 19:56:18 +0000)

Do it again!” This was the command from my 3-year-old back-seat passenger after I pressed the Sport Response button on the Porsche’s steering wheel for the third time. We felt the eight-speed twin-clutch gearbox smoothly and almost instantly skip down four gears; the car accelerated strongly from 45 mph to 75 mph—also for the third...

2019 Ram 1500 Rebel 12 Brings in New Tech (Fri, 21 Sep 2018 17:48:12 +0000)

The Ram 1500 Rebel has a refined interior. The black and red color theme befits the truck’s name, and we love the comfortable cloth and vinyl seats and the rotary shifter, among other things. But now Ram is offering Rebel buyers more technology and upgraded materials as part of a new special edition. The Rebel 12...

2017 Infiniti QX30 S Four Seasons Wrap-Up (Fri, 21 Sep 2018 15:08:16 +0000)

Asking us why we chose to add an Infiniti QX30 S to our Four Seasons fleet is a lot like asking someone why they got a tattoo when they were drunk. Although the details are fuzzy now, it seemed like a good idea at the time. Unlike the tattoo, however, we’ll never regret adding the...

If you’ve never seen a rallycross event before, you probably should. It’s essentially the action sports version of motorsport, with huge jumps, alternate routes, plenty of dirt, and world-class drivers who love to fly around (literally) in high strung rally style cars. We caught up with the megastar of the action sports set and the...
