Filed under: Automobile — sketchcorner @ 2:56 am

I just returned from Oahu, Hawaii, and was thinking about used cars and how fast new car technology is moving forwards as we finished the first decade in the new millenia. All in all, do yant to buy a smart used car, one that will have great resale value and is not technology outdated? Makes sense to buy one of the most popular used cars, doesn’t it? As an aside, if you are looking for a good Oahu used cars then I can definately suggest this firm, especially if you are looking for Infinity used cars on Oahu, in particular.
Here they are:
# 1 is the wonderful and ever-popular, Honda Accord (2006 is most popular resale model). I bet you could have guessed that.
# 2 is the Accord’s sensible little sister, the 2007 Honda Civic. Have you noticed the new civic has been restyled and it’s getting better-looking all the time?
# 3 is the old sex symbol, the Ford Mustang, the 2007 model. Anyone can guess why folks like it. It’s a real American icon. I have noticed that this model of used cars is especially popular on Oahu.
The Mustang is followed at #4 by its hunky brother, the 2006 Ford F150 SuperCrew. This favorite truck isn’t known for its great gas mileage or its zippy acceleration, but it’s pretty quiet and comfortable for longer trips.
# 5 is the 2007 Toyota Camry. Yep, people still buy those Toyotas. On the highway the 2007 gets 31 to 34 MPG. There’s your first clue.

Technology Advancing With Plug-In Hybrids

Filed under: Automobile — sketchcorner @ 2:21 am

Just got back from San Mateo to visit the attorney via trucking and thought it was time to post again: Plug-in hybrids are different from the hybrids we’re seeing all over the roads today, like the ubiquitous Prius. They both run on gasoline and electric engines, but the plug-in can be plugged into an outlet in your garage overnight and recharge itself. It has larger, more powerful packs of batteries. One of the problems has been that these batteries are very expensive, running into the thousands of dollars, and they need to be replaced from time to time like any battery. But now, the technology is advancing, and the price is coming down. They will still be expensive, but many more people will find them accessible. Just hope the car is not a lemon otherwise you need to take action. Speaking of that, if you are in Missouri or St. Louis and require a tip top Seattle DUI attorney then I must recommend this firm, they are very respected and can also do auto, car plus various personal injury related cases in addition to the DUI attorney stuff in Seattle. then check this guy out. In my humble opinion he is one of the better auto and lemon law attorney in all of the greater San Mateo area in general. General Motors is expecting to have the much anticipated Chevy Volt plug-in model available by 2010, and Volvo expects to have one by 2012, and so do Hyundai, and Toyota. General Motors plans to follow the plug-in Volt up with a plug-in Sports Utility vehicle in 2011. Toyota is gearing up to produce as many as 30,000 plug-in hybrids in 2012.

Hyundai has a new technology with a directly injected 1.6 liter gas engine with a CVT transmission, and a 100 kilowatt electric motor. These are getting popular here in San Mateo as well, according to my friend who owns a San Mateo auto repair…….

The Blue-Will will be a four-door sports car that will sport a panoramic roof equipped with solar cells that are transparent. The car will be built with eco-friendly plastics throughout the auto, not sure how the repair would work though. The headlamp bezels will be made from recycled plastic bottles. Other plastics incorporated in the car will be made from plant extracts. The Blue-Will will get up to 55 miles per hour in the hybrid-electric mode and will cover 38 miles in the electric mode only. The Blue-Will should be a Greener and cleaner car with a very jazzy and futuristic look. This will also be a safer car if a DUI driver runs into you, then you would need a repair.
