2015 Chrysler 200 Rising to The Top!

February 26, 2015

200With the first nine-speed automatic transmission in its class, the 2015 Chrysler 200 delivers better acceleration than the 2014s, with better economy — up to 36 mpg highway [see all mileage ratings]. As predicted, the nine-speed is controlled by a rotary shifter with an optional sport mode; and there is are all wheel drive and park-assist options.

The 2014’s basic engines carry over, but both have been upgraded; the four-cylinder now has 184 hp and 173 lb of torque, while the V6 has risen to 295 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Chrysler 200 has also jumped forward to become the most aerodynamic mid-size sedan in America, with a cD of 0.27 — possibly the lowest drag coefficient of any Chrysler ever built — partly thanks to a standard underbody cover. A stop-start system will, with active grille shutters, be added as a late option to increase gas mileage, according to source oh2o.

Looking For A Hybrid?

February 20, 2015

2015-Toyota-Prius+-Main-ArtTurn back the clock by one decade, and there were just four hybrid cars on sale in the U.S.

One was the first-generation Toyota Prius. The original Honda Insight was still going strong as the most efficient vehicle on sale (and only plug-in cars still better it today). Honda also offered the Civic Hybrid. And Ford’s Escape Hybrid had just made its debut back in 2004.

Today, including different transmission options that figure has risen by dozens, giving consumers a fantastic range of options for fuel-efficient hybrid motoring.

Our guide to every diesel vehicle on sale in the U.S. has proven popular, so below is our guide to every hybrid vehicle currently on sale. We’ve only featured vehicles that don’t require plugging in, so you won’t find the plug-in Prius or Chevrolet Volt in the list.  Click to read more

Subaru Gets Thumbs Up

February 19, 2015


Subaru ranked third overall in the Summer 2014 NADA Dealer Attitude Survey, behind Lexus and Toyota and ahead of Porsche and Ford.

Brands that disappointed saleswise — Volvo, Smart, Mini and Volkswagen — were the bottom four in the latest survey, which was obtained by Automotive News.

The National Automobile Dealers Association surveys dealers in winter and summer. The attitude survey is intended to be a confidential report card on dealer-factory relationships. NADA privately presents the survey results to automakers and dealers and does not release the study to the media.

The survey measures such areas as dealers’ satisfaction with brand franchise policies, competitiveness of products, value of the franchise, satisfaction with management and whether they think the value of the franchise will increase in the next year.  Read More…

Car Leasing 101

January 21, 2015

What You Need to Know About Leasing a Car

The basic allure of leasing a car is that you don’t have to pay for or finance the entire cost of a vehicle. You’re simply paying for the use of that vehicle for a specific period, often two or three years or as long as five or six years. It’s not exactly renting, but the principle is similar. Evaluating a lease is a matter of basic arithmetic. You need to consider four factors:

  • Total initial payment, including Capital Cost Reduction (down payment) and any extra fees
  • Amount of each monthly payment
  • Number of months in lease terms
  • Possible additional charges at the end of the lease
