10 Things You Didn’t Know About Your Car Insurance

Car insurance can be very confusing for anyone. It’s also one of those things that can be very costly if not done right. We rounded up the 10 key things that you may not know about your car insurance. Having “No-Fault” Insurance Many people mistakenly think that when they have a no-fault car insurance, no one will be blamed or considered at fault in the event of an accident.

Art and Engineering: How Dan Wright’s fast fine art is a long slow metal chase

Photos courtesy the author. [Editor’s Note: Louise Ann Noeth recently caught up with artist Daniel Wright to discuss his racing-inspired sculptures, the inspiration behind them, and the process by which he sculpts and casts them.] We who choose to admire art, and perhaps purchase ones that “speak” to us in some way, rarely have a clue about the tedious journey the piece took to get to our eyeballs and then inveigle its way into our hearts. Cast investment art such as bronze sculpture is a long ...

6 Important Things You Need to Do After Buying A Lemon Car

In a list of expensive purchases that are supposed to last, a car tops the list. It’s supposed to be a lasting purchase. So, when your newly bought car spends more time in a mechanic’s garage than on the road or even in your own garage, then you’ve landed yourself a lemon. No one likes going to the mechanic and it’s worse when you just bought your car. However, there comes a point when the repairs are too constant and you’re left needing to act. You have the power to advocate for yourself when i...

What Happens If You’re A Passenger In An Uber Accident?

Travel has recently undergone quite a revolution and Uber is one of the most visible trends to have sprung up in the past decade. The rideshare app allows individuals to request rides from nearby drivers through their phones. It’s much cheaper than conventional taxi services and often much quicker due to the proximity-based matching system and state-of-the-art GPS technology. Despite those features, however, Uber is not free from criticism and its drivers are not infallible. Accidents can still ...

Want an old car? Be careful -- and turn off the TV!

I hate televised auctions and "build-it-quick-to-flip-it" shows, because they present an unrealistic view of the old-car hobby. You can't build a good car cheap or fast, and it's very easy to spend more than it's really worth. Find out all the pitfalls in my story at Autofocus. [Author: Jil McIntosh]

Subcompact Crossovers Are Depreciating Faster Than Any Other Segment

Remember how Beanie Babies were a national phenomenon in the mid-1990s? The country couldn’t seem to get enough of the little darlings and many ended up going for astronomical prices. But, like most stupid trends, their popularity was short lived. It wasn’t long before the once-collectible toys held the same value as a used pair of […] The post Subcompact Crossovers Are Depreciating Faster Than Any Other Segment appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

If You’re Wondering Why Automakers Can’t Stop Talking About Mobility, Wonder No More

“Mobility” is easily the most overused term in today’s automotive vernacular. Despite being incredibly nonspecific, executives can’t help but make it the bookend of most speeches involving long-term goals and production stratagems. But why? The term itself pertains more to the industry itself than the specific products it’s developing. While “mobility” can be applied to any conveyance with […] The post If You’re Wondering Why Automakers Can’t Stop Talking About Mobility, Wonder No More appeared ...

5 Practical Tips to Help You Save For Your Dream Car

Don’t you sometimes wish you can go around the city driving your car? We all do at some point. But, you wake up from that wishful thinking into the sad reality that you just can’t afford it.

Do You Know What To Do In A Ride Sharing Accident?

Ride sharing and ride hailing are often lumped together, but the two services are completely different. One is more like a taxi while the other is more like a bus. What’s not different about the two is that there is still a lot of confusion about who is legally responsible if there is an accident. Because drivers don’t usually need commercial insurances even though they are performing a duty for which they are getting paid, insurance companies are often reluctant to pay up in the event of an acc...

Love is surprising

Love is surprising isn’t it? Don’t you wonder what we would do without it? Love isn’t equal. Many times the degree that we love someone else is more or less than the amount they love us. When this happens for many people it is uncomfortable. I have had gfs tell me that they don’t want to care about me more than I care about them. I have never had that idea. The idea of measuring love out and only giving to someone else what they give to you reduces love to a business arrangement. If I give love ...

First Uber, now Tesla: Employee sues over sexism, inappropriate conduct

Following Susan Fowler’s damning accusations against Uber, Elon Musk’s Tesla is under fire for much the same reason. AJ Vandermeyen, an engineer who still works for Tesla, spoke with The Guardian about her experiences with sexism and harassment within the company. She filed suit against the company last year (before Fowler’s claims against Uber were posted). This is the first time Vandermeyen’s spoken publicly about the suit, which mirror’s Fowler’s complaints to an eerie degree. Among other thi...

How to Sell Your Old Car for Cash

When an older car becomes useless for the owner, it may be stored in the yard or in a garage for many years until the owner decides to have it hauled away for scrap. In some cases, individuals inherit a property with a junk car on it and need to haul it away so that the property can be listed for sale. Junk cars initially appear to be worthless, and they may even be a dangerous eyesore to have on your property. The good news is that you can easily use a junk car removal service to clear away the...

Real life superhero in NYC giving to others

This is a touching story about a real life superhero in NYC giving to others. Why am I sharing this? It is touching that the values of sharing and caring for others cause people to do these kind of things. We can help in our own way. It is neat that he took something that may people consider a negative or problem and turned it into a positive. One of the things that he has said in other documentaries is that he gives and goes out and helps people when he doesn’t have work. He works as a video pr...

How much is enough?

One of the questions I often ask myself is How much is enough? For example, I have been fortunate to have jobs that have enabled me to buy a car I enjoy. What I have seen myself doing over the years is buying better and better cars. I enjoy cars and the technology they have, but at some  point it has to stop. I just can’t continue to spend money on better cars or I won’t have money for other things that are more important. Don’t misunderstand. I am buying cars that I can easily afford and that a...

The appeal of downsizing

I have an opportunity in my life to downsize and I believe I am going to do it. I have mentioned before that I love cars and the technology and features of them. However I find myself disappointed even having driven and owned a few luxury cars. Commercials and society leads you to believe that having a luxury car will be a great experience. It was not a great experience. In fact I found the luxury experience worse than having cheaper and normal cars. With all the technology in the car it was unr...

Is your iPhone 6+ battery draining too rapidly?

Mine is, and it could be due to the known battery issue with iPhone 6+ phones. What happens to me and others is that it can quickly go from something like 40% charged to 33% charged in a matter of seconds. This has happened to me several times, and I have just dealt with it because I didn’t want to go to an Apple store. However it has now become so bad that I don’t think I have a choice. Fortunately in NYC there are many apple stores, so that helps. On the other hand, what would help even more i...

Touching TV show called The Super

I’ve been watching a touching TV show called The Super on Netflix. It really is educational. Why is this a touching show? Mostly because the Super tries in every way to fix the issues that his tenants face. I would have loved to have a super like Dave. All of my supers have been far short of his standard. What we see is him buying things and giving money out of his own pocket to help people. He sympathizes with people and cares about their problems. I like how many of the issues that he faces is...
