Last year Google launched the Google’s Self Driving Car a project to test the boundaries of technology and driving in a bid to enable drivers to be more productive when they are behind the wheel. Earlier in the week Google announced that the vehicle had surpassed the 300,000 mile mark.
In a report published by the head engineer of the project, Chris Urmson, he has said, “Our vehicles, of which about a dozen are on the road at any given time, have now completed more […]
Research has shown that drivers in the United Kingdom are spending in excess of £150 million on repairs each year after they put the wrong fuel in their cars. The in-depth research found that the total equates to a driver mistakenly putting in either petrol or diesel once every 105 seconds.

Earlier this year I decided to treat the wife to a new car, she had been moaning about the ever increasing bills that her KA was burdening the family budget with, and reasoned that with the scrappage scheme drawing to a close we were missing out on an opportunity to trade old for new at a reasonable cost. Needless to say I eventually caved in and off we toddled to a Ford showroom. It didn’t quite turn out to be a case of haggling over […]
Make your car sound better
You know you are getting old when a car goes past your house and the driver has the window down and the boom-boom of music coming from the car has you saying “That’s not music, its just noise”. Chances are the driver is young and also that he/she has added a car amplifier to the music system. You may have seen this done on shows like “Pimp my ride” but it is possible to install a great sound system yourself. Bear […]
How much is your driving licence worth?

First and foremost it enables us to live the life we do at a pace that would be impossible without the use of the family car, even non drivers such as children and senior citizens rely on a family member to be available with a car for a great many things, the school run, trips to the doctors or perhaps […]
Whether it’s to the supermarket or a 200 mile trip across the country, a motorist can never be 100% certain that his car will not break down, even the most reliable vehicle will at some time fail to start.

Very few pay little attention to the car battery.
Every day of the year, breakdown services will attend hundreds of breakdowns that are battery […]
