Used Cars: 5 Diesel Sedan Deals in July

When the weather gets hot and family vacation trips are in full swing, fuel companies often ignore the time tested practice of lowering prices in lieu of increased demand. There, I have said it — I believe that they get a little (lot) greedy. I can remember a time when fuel prices actually went down over the holidays because entrepreneurs realized that they would more than make up for it with volume of sales. Then again, in those days you never heard annual reports from fuel companies indicating net profits in the multiple-billions of dollars. As long as you plan to drive from point A to point B, then you have only one way to get even; save fuel. Conserve as much fuel in as many different ways as possible. (more…)

Hyundai Bitten by the Safety Recall Bug

The Hyundai Motor Company announced on July 1, 2014 that approximately 58,000 Hyundai Elantra Touring vehicles will be recalled in North America. The recall is expected to deal with a steel support bracket that could become dislodged during an airbag deployment, possibly injuring vehicle occupants. While no injuries have been reported as a result of the wayward bracket, Hyundai officials noted its similarity to a bracket used in manufacturing side impact airbags used in 2011 through 2013 Elantra sedans. In 2013 approximately 200,000 Elantra sedans were recalled after the side impact airbag bracket allegedly lacerated a passenger’s ear during an airbag deployment. The latest recall, which will include 2010 through 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring vehicles in the U.S. and Canada, is scheduled to begin in August. “Hyundai … is voluntarily initiating this action to ensure the safety and quality of vehicles and the continued satisfaction of its customers,” the company said in a statement today. No current information was available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) but will provide more details as soon as possible. (more…)

Cars We Remember 1963 Ford Galaxie

1963 Ford Galaxie 1963 Ford Galaxie 427 lightweight Q: Hello Greg and I want you to know I get awful upset hearing about how great the ‘63 Chevy was. I think the ‘63 Ford was the better looking car and is much rarer on the classic car market. What’s your opinion of the 1963 Ford Galaxie? Also, can you give some info on the special lightweight 427 Galaxie that Ford released as a 1963 1/2 model? I know they didn’t make many at all. Bill H, New Hampshire. A: Bill, without taking sides in a Ford versus Chevy discussion, the 1963 Fords were very good looking cars. Additionally, it was in 1963 that you could finally buy a 427 dual quad Galaxie “R Code” that put out 425 horses and ran very well at the drag strip. A single 4-barrell 427 developed 405 horses.

2015 Kia K900

2015 Kia K900 Base Price: $59,500 Price as tested: $66,400 This week we drive the new luxury class 2015 Kia K900, available now at select Kia dealerships. Kia K900 delivers affluence in a “challenge the luxury you know” catchphrase promoted in advertising by Kia spokesman and movie legend Laurence Fishburn, he of Matrix movie fame. Kia’s “luxury car” message is clear. Ask consumers to disregard luxury car heritage and accept today’s offerings from manufacturers not previously known for luxury vehicles. Fishburn is clear in his print and television messages as he taunts the consumer to forget about a “follow the luxury car pack” decision and step into a new realm of Kia opulence. As with any new vehicle, K900 branding will take some time to accomplish. However, thanks to Kia’s quality builder reputation intact, the learning curve may be less pronounced. And, just as Acura (Honda), Lexus (Toyota) and Infiniti (Nissan) established end user luxury car acceptance, K900 will experience similar struggles for herd acceptance. (more…)
