Light repairs, maintenance, Ospreys and fake missiles

 Still boondocking in the Block C section of the Barry Goldwater Gunnery Range and having a pretty good time with the isolation and quiet solitude.   Still lots of traffic by Border Patrol vehicles but they've become background noise to me by now. Tuesday, November 17 Rode Yagi, my TW200, to the town of Roll, AZ....Just north of the nearest town to my campsite: Tacna.  I was picking up a replacement 35 white lamp for the sidecar light on Fiona which had taken a rock and then broke...

In Review: 2020 Honda Passport

What happens when you take a three-row Honda Pilot, cut it down a bit, and only include two rows of seats? You get cargo space, cargo space, cargo space. Find out all about the Honda Passport in my review at the National Post (Driving.ca.) [Author: Jil McIntosh]

In Review: 2020 Volvo XC90 T8 Plug-In Hybrid

Plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) may be the best choice for those who like electrics but need more range. A PHEV will run on its battery alone after you plug in it, but once that runs out, it'll keep going as long as it has fuel in its tank. Volvo has a few, including my tester, the XC90 T8. Find out more in my review at AutoTRADER.ca. [Author: Jil McIntosh]

Yamaha Just Killed the R6

The End of an Era Yamaha has killed the WR250R, VMAX, and most importantly, the iconic R6 from their 2021 lineup. This may come as a big surprise to many, but I can assure you that the legendary R6 will be missing from Yamaha’s 2021 lineup.  We all know and love the R6, it’s a ratty, sporty motorcycle that is most known for competing with the Honda CBR 600RR and Kawasaki ZX-6R. How could the brand remove such a ‘staple’ of their brand from the market? How did we get here? The R6 was an importa...

Hyundai Being Sued Over Kona Electric Fires, LG Chem on Deck

Hyundai Motor Co. is being sued over a series of battery fires in its electric vehicles in Asia — specifically in relation to the otherwise-enjoyable Kona EV. Though it hardly seems fair to single out Hyundai when General Motors recently issued a recall encompassing 68,677 electric vehicles with batteries manufactured by LG Chem. Interestingly, Hyundai’s 74,000-strong […] The post Hyundai Being Sued Over Kona Electric Fires, LG Chem on Deck appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

GM Says Labor Disputes Are Making South Korea Look Unmanageable

Over the last few years, General Motors has been cautiously hinting that it wants to pull out the Korean market. In 2018, the automaker started worrying about regional bankruptcy and shuttered one of its South Korean facilities after noting that labor costs had been on the rise. While the government handed GM 850 billion won […] The post GM Says Labor Disputes Are Making South Korea Look Unmanageable appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Rare Rides: A 1990 Jeep Comanche Pioneer, the Best Jeep Truck Ever

Today’s Rare Ride comes from a time when Jeep still offered a two-door pickup to the American small truck consumer. Super clean, pretty retro, and with great tape stripes, it’s the Jeep Comanche Pioneer. A fitting example of the first-ever Jeep featured in this series! Jeep introduced the massively successful XJ Cherokee as a new […] The post Rare Rides: A 1990 Jeep Comanche Pioneer, the Best Jeep Truck Ever appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Doragon: A Harley Sportster 1200 custom from Dubai

I didn’t see many motorcycles when I paid a brief visit to Dubai a few years ago. The streets were full of Toyota Landcruisers, growling supercars and Mercedes sedans with black tinted glass. But the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates has a thriving biker scene if you know where to look, and even an annual custom show called ‘Art of Motorcycles.’ One of the key players in the local custom scene is Möto Rauch & Staub. A full-service workshop with a café and barbershop attached, ...

Arrival becomes latest electric vehicle startup to test the public markets with a SPAC

Arrival has gone from stealthy electric vehicle startup to prospective public company in a span of a year. The UK-based company, which operated in relative secrecy for several years until January when it announced a $110 million investment from Hyundai and Kia, said Wednesday it has agreed to merge with special purpose acquisition company CIIG Merger Corp. Arrival was already considered one of the UK’s most valuable startups before Wednesday’s SPAC merger announcement.  This deal, which when ...

Best Radar Detectors with Dash Cameras: 2020 Guide

If you’re serious about road safety and protecting your car, you need to account for every eventuality. A good radar detector covers you from things like speed traps and red-light cameras, but it does nothing to help you in the case of an accident. A high-quality dash camera can record the details if anybody bumps into your car or worse, tries to do a hit and run. Each one compliments the other, which is why they’re so commonly sold as a package deal. Affiliate disclosure: Automoblog and i...

My Car Has No Heat … But it was Working Fine Last Winter! 5 Potential Causes for no Heat in your Car.

Most of us take our car heaters for granted, not knowing how they work other than you run the engine, crank up the temperature, and hot air blows out from the vents. But what happens when the heat stops coming? There are few things as miserable as driving in freezing weather with no heat in your car and fingers frozen to the steering wheel—but with winter on the way, getting the problem fixed ahead of time is critical.  Here are five potential causes for no heat in your car (Truck, Minivan...

Here’s the 2021 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT

A New Tracer With the addition of the new MT-09 to Yamaha’s lineup, it should come as no surprise that there’s also a new 2021 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT. This new bike is powered by an 890cc CP3 cross-plane inline triple that’s pretty much completely new.  Perhaps the best news about the Tracer 9 GT is that it doesn’t look anything like the MT-09, which is, well, ugly by just about all accounts. The styling of the Tracer 9 GT isn’t what I’d call sleek, but it’s certainly not a horrid-looking machine a...
