Screen Shot 2017-01-31 at 3.50.30 AM

What? Didn’t we just cover the reasons you might want to buy an SUV last week? You bet we did. In the interests of fairness, we thought it might be valuable to offer an opposing viewpoint this week. Today’s opposing viewpoints come from Jim Kenzie of Motoring TV from an episode back in 1997. Jim says you can call them crossovers or call them SUVs – just don’t call them yours. That has been and continues to be, the consensus from the Motoring TV team since the show’s earliest days. SUVs have come a long way, but most of the […]

tire-rotation-featured

Let’s talk about making your tires last longer with regular tire rotation and wheel balancing. Let’s start with tire rotation. In normal driving, your front tires wear more on the shoulders, because they handle much of the cornering forces in turns. Front-wheel drive vehicles have even more force on the front tires.

Today I want to talk about a topic near and dear to all Phoenix area drivers, and that’s your car’s air-conditioning, specifically about service and repair issues. For most of us, we don’t give our air conditioning a second thought, as long as it’s making cold air, right? But, it’s a complex and expensive system you should think about before it starts blowing hot air. For example, you may not know that the refrigerant and the air conditioner circulates a special oil that lubricates the AC parts. As refrigerant leaks out, the lubricant doesn’t get moved through the system and […]

This Guy Used a Maserati Engine to Build a 470 HP Motorcycle

Over the years we’ve featured a lot of super cars. Well, today here’s something for our 2-wheel fans, a super bike! Who wants to take it for a spin? 🙂 When you came across a V8 4.7L Maserati 32-valve engine most people would not think: I wonder if I can build a motorcycle around that?
