The Veloster has been confused about where it belongs in the automotive market, but we still love it. This car offers only three entry doors for passengers, which is a bit odd, but it also gives you a sporty look and a feel that you can’t deny. The rear hatch opens up to a cavernous cargo area and with the addition of the turbocharged model a couple years ago this car does have respectable power. Is it a hot hatch, is a practical choice, is it even a good car to buy; no matter what this car is or isn’t, it’s definitely fun to drive.
When you think of autonomous driving and what it will mean for the future are you excited or frightened? Regardless of how you feel about it, this future of driving seems inevitable and eventually will be a reality. As you head out to your vehicle to go to work or to make a trip to the store, think about all the different aspects of driving that you encounter during even a short drive. You could have children playing nearby and need to take evasive action to make sure you don’t run them over, you might need to slow for traffic that has gotten backed up or you might hear the sirens of an oncoming emergency vehicle.
The car that you want to drive, the one that you’ve dreamed about more than once, had posters of in your room as a teenager or in your garage, is a car that brings you the joy and the responsibility to see it perform at its best. For many of us, the car we’ve always dreamed about is one that’s part of a bygone era and possibly even a rarity on the market today. When you do find your dream car, there may be more than meets the eye when it comes to what that car represents.
We’ve all had that moment, sitting in traffic or simply waiting at a stoplight, that we see something on another car that makes us scoff or even to call out the ridiculousness of our view to passengers. While the annoyances are the same for everyone (clearly), each driver on the road has at least one car accessory that falls into their “most hated” category. What’s your least favorite?
For many years one of the most impressive selling features of the Hyundai lineup has been the long warranty on the power train. This ten-year/100,000 miles warranty has been offered across the lineup and given us what we want to enjoy on the road when it comes to peace of mind, but what if you still need more value? This is where the Hyundai Accent comes in. This is a car that comes to you as a stylish subcompact car that offers the ride quality you want and the equipment you need in a package that makes it easy for you to afford the price.
The recession was a tough time for nearly every American, especially the families who were upside down in mortgages they could no longer afford on houses that weren’t worth a quarter of what they initially cost. However, the general public wasn’t the only group affected by the massive downturn in the economy; many businesses suffered as well. The automotive industry was one of the hardest hit in the recession of 2008, and many of the common American manufacturers found themselves in the pickle of taking a bailout, or closing their doors forever.
