Cars Without Fake Grilles

  Cars Without Fake Grilles If you had to pick the automotive equivalent of Spanx, a pretty safe bet would be fake grilles. If you had to pick the automotive equivalent of Spanx, a pretty safe bet would be fake grilles. They serve a purely aesthetic purpose, and they accomplish that purpose via a little bit of harmless subterfuge. They’re fake, and they’re all over nearly every car on the market today. Have you wondered what cars would look like if grille design was focused on honesty? Of course you have.

And then Santa would be a Canadian citizen so he wouldn’t have to lie when he puts a Canadian flag on his mighty backpack while travelling abroad. I would include a bridge or two for Montreal, but Quebec wanted to write its own list. The good news is that Canada does not have to ask for more

In an annual survey on what kind of vehicle Canadians would like Santa to bring them this Christmas, the answers were both expected and, in some cases, quite surprising, according to DesRosiers Automotive Consultants (DAC).

Future Dodge Chargers and Challengers May be Based on Maseratis

  Future Dodge Chargers and Challengers May be Based on Maseratis It’s been more than a decade since Dodge brought back the Charger, and in that time, it’s received several major updates but no complete redesign. The story’s been the same with the Challenger, too: continual updates but no all-new car since its introduction. For a while, we’d heard both the Charger and the Challenger would eventually be moved to the Giorgio platform that underpins the Alfa Romeo Giulia. But according to the latest rumor, that plan has changed.Automotive News reports that the Charger and Challenger will get one more refresh for 2019 before being completely redesigned for 2021.

#1 – SUVs

SUVs topped all other vehicle types on Santa’s list for the fourth year in a row, with 23.8% of Canadians favouring them as their primary choices – not a surprise, given that about 40% of actual new-vehicle sales fit within the utility-vehicle envelope. Consumers from Manitoba and Saskatchewan heavily preferred SUVs, with more than one-third (35.5%) choosing them.

#2 – Electric Vehicles

What did surprise was the second-place ranking of electric vehicles on respondents’ wish lists, garnering 18.0% of their responses. That’s a big increase from last year’s 11.3% share – and a huge contrast to the less than 1% of buyers actually purchasing EVs. Could the cult-culture allure of the Tesla rather than the reality of electric vehicle technology be playing a role in those dream choices?

They found that thieves tend to target Honda Accords and Civics, with almost 100,000 thefts in total. Car thieves preferred older vehicles, too; 1997 Accords and 1998 Civics were stolen the most often.

Electric vehicles were the most popular choice in Quebec (25.1%) and British Columbia (21.3%), according to DAC.

#3 – Pickup trucks

Practicality, as well as image, probably played a role in the preference for pickup trucks by 13.3% of those responding – much closer to their real-world market share, which is in the 20% range.

#4 – Exotic/Sports Cars

Like electric vehicles, exotic and sports car are but a blip on the radar of real vehicle sales but they ranked first on 12.6% of Canadians’ wish lists. Why not? Isn’t that why they’re called wish lists?

#5 – Sedans

Sedans were fifth in the ranking, being the first choice for just 9.9% of respondents – not surprising given the continuous decline in conventional car popularity.

#6 – Small Economy Cars

Small economy cars fared even worse, making only 7.7% of the wish lists. Is it the “small” or the “economy” par of the moniker that fails to fuel aspirations?

  3 Ways to Remove Bugs and Bumper Stickers on Cars <p>When those bugs smash into your car at 100 km per hour, they really stick.</p>If those tattered old bumper stickers on your car make you feel more nauseated than nostalgic, it’s time to break out the vinegar. Saturate the top and sides of the sticker with undiluted distilled vinegar and wait 10-15 minutes for the vinegar to soak through. Then use an expired credit card (or one of those promotional plastic cards that come in the mail) to scrape it off. Use more full-strength vinegar to get rid of any remaining gluey residue. Use the same technique to detach those cute decals your youngster used to decorate the back windshield.

You actually felt like you bought the car you wanted , not the only car you could afford, even though it was near the end of its lifecycle. 45 Responses to QotW: What do you want from Japanese Santa Claus?

#7 – Minivans

Does nobody dream of minivans? Very few it seems. Continuing a four-year trend, the minivan was the least popular vehicle, garnering only 5.6% of Santa’s requests.

Beyond just the overall hierarchy of vehicle segmentation in the rankings, there was also a clear correlation between interest and age for many of the vehicle types, according to DesRosiers. Declining interest in exotic and electric cars was apparent among older consumers, who showed a rising interest in pick-up trucks and small economy cars.

In addition, the popularity of an electric vehicle corresponded directly with education level, as EVs were far less popular among high school graduates (14.5%), compared to college- (17.0%) or university-educated consumers (21.7%).
