Help! – They downsized my oil filter

Friday, November 30th, 2012

:jpshakehe
I have had a 2003 3.3l for many years. It finally bit the dust (not the engine, the tranny) So I moved up to a 2008 3.3l minivan and now have discovered that the oil filter size has been reduced – now a Mopar 4105409. I’m sure this is old news to most of you, but new news to me. So…

Honda yanks sheet off 2013 Crosstour, adds lower base price [w/video]

Friday, November 30th, 2012

2013 Honda Crosstour

The Honda Crosstour has been something of an automotive whatcha-ma-call-it. Buyers have found it hard to identify what the high-riding wagon is all about, and so have we. Honda even started out by calling it the Accord Crosstour, and then changed its name to help give it more of its own identity. But with other popular crossovers already in Honda’s stables, trying to carve out a niche for the Crosstour has been no easy task.

To help strengthen the identity of the crossover-wagon, Honda has updated the Crosstour with more “refined styling,” a number of content improvements and a lower base price. The first thing you will notice is the more utilitarian, “rugged” styling, with a pronounced front clip, fender flares and side skirts.

Under the hood lies one of Honda’s new Earth Dreams family of engines. The base 2.4-liter inline-four makes 192 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, while returning 22 miles per gallon city and 31 miles per gallon highway. The available 3.5-liter V6 produces 278 horsepower, up seven from the outgoing V6, making it the most powerful engine in the Earth Dreams family. The V6 returns 20/29 for front-wheel-drive models, and 18/28 for V6 models equipped with Real Time 4WD.

The Crosstour is also available with a suite of safety technologies, including a backup camera, forward collision warning and lane departure warning. A set of less-technical safety improvements have been applied as well, including reshaped headrests for improved visibility and an expanded view driver’s mirror.

The 2013 Honda Crosstour comes with a $27,230 base price – $525 less than the outgoing model – and goes on sale November 30, 2012. Only time will tell if these changes are effective enough to sway more buyers, but if you may be interested, check out the press release and video below.

Ford debuts familiar all-new Mondeo, shows wagon version [w/poll]

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Filed under: , , , , ,

Ford showed the world its all-new Mondeo in Amsterdam today, alerting Europeans that a new “flagship” for the Blue Oval brand has arrived. The new Ford, a lookalike of the Fusion model available here in the United States, makes its European debut with flavors of powertrain and body style that will be unique to its target market.

First and foremost (to our car-geek eyes) is the five-door wagon variant that you see here. The Mondeo wagon retains the angular front-third from the sedan version, but tacks a rather long and useful-looking cargo space on to the back of the vehicle. The result, at least from some vantage points, isn’t the most elegant load-lugger we’ve yet seen, but it is certainly prepared handle small-family needs in a way that a sedan just can’t match.

The Mondeo will be available with Ford’s 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, as well as with a hybrid-electric powertrain making use of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder motor. The HEV powerplant is the first such for a European Ford product, and will be available on the sedan only, to start. The company states that Mondeo will see a diesel-powered, all-wheels-driven version for the first time ever, though no timing is offered for this model.

Other niceties like SYNC, MyFord Touch, a panoramic roof and adaptive LED headlights will be available, too, causing Ford reps to gush that this Mondeo is “the most premium” model they’ve offered to date.

If Ford were to offer a Fusion wagon here in the U.S., ladies and gentlemen, this is what it would look like. Sadly, as ever, the wagon is a Euro-only treat. That said, cast your vote in our poll below and let us know if you’d actually buy a Fusion wagon if Ford were to ever offer one in the States.

VW ending Kombi production after 63-year run

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Filed under: , , ,

No, the picture above is not that of a fully restored Volkswagen Bus. It is actually a 2012 Volkswagen Kombi that is still in production in Brazil… for now. Due to tougher safety regulations, the Kombi’s days are numbered as Brazil’s government is requiring all new cars to come with dual front airbags and anti-lock brakes as standard equipment. No word on a replacement for the long-lived Kombi, but it won’t be the VW Bulli.

Originally known as the Type 2, the iconic Volkswagen van first debuted back in 1950. Matching its classic styling, Car and Driver points out that the Kombi replaced the original air-cooled engine with a liquid-cooled mill only within the last decade.

Volkswagen has quite a history of squeezing every last year out of its designs between the original Beetle that was produced from 1938 through 2003 in Mexico and the MkI Golf that was introduced in 1974 and ended production in South Africa in 2009.

2012 Volkswagen Golf

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

The pioneer in hot hatchbacks – the Volkswagen Golf – is back with some new engine and model versions for 2012. Although many rival automotive brands have caught up with the Golf in terms of popularity, sales and technological advancement over the years, the VW Golf’s reputation alone still gives it a notch of an advantage over its counterparts with regards to buyer preference particularly in the European market. The 2012 version of the VW Golf is now available for sale in the UK as a 3-door or 5-door hatchback with 5 distinct models but with the same core values- fun to drive, solidly built and competitively priced.

Without further ado, here are the five 2012 Golf models and its respective trims and base prices which are as follows: The entry level Golf starting at £15,850 up to £21,310 with 4 trims namely the S, the Match, the Blue Motion and the GT. For those who love the sun and driving with the roof down, there’s the all-new Golf Cabriolet model which is only sold as a 2-door version with 3 trims starting with the S at £20,720, the SE for £22,455, and the GT for £25,295.

The Golf Plus is a roomy version of the entry level model and comes available with 5 doors in 2 variants with the S at £15,780 and the SE at £19,370. For those who like more room for the family, there’s the Golf Estate with three trims starting with the S (£17,960), the SE (£20,095), and the Sportline (£21,965).

And last but certainly not the least among them, the world renowned Golf GTI model which is favored by car reviewers and enthusiasts alike. This is the most powerful and sporty version and comes in four trims namely the GTD (£24,635), the GTI (£25,305), the GTI Edition 35 (£27,525), and the top of the model line Golf R (£31,420).

With the exception of the Golf Blue Motion trim which is powered solely by a fuel efficient 1.6L 105hp turbo-diesel engine, any other Golf model can be had in three variants of the 5-cylinder petrol engines (two 1.2L with 85hp and 105hp; and a 1.4L with 122hp) and four variants of the 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engines (two 1.6TDi with 90hp and 105hp; a 1.6L Blue Motion Technology with 105hp; and a 2.0TDi 140hp). A standard five or six-speed manual gearbox transfers power to the front wheels although an optional six or seven-speed automatic transmission is also available.

Even though the 2012 VW Golf is deemed a tad expensive compared to other cars in its class, its long list of standard amenities, safety features and overall fun factor will do justice to its asking price. Nothing else out there can compare to the 35 years of constant evolution by the VW Golf, testament to the company’s pursuit of delivering to the consumers a vehicle with a fun to drive dynamics in an overall quality package.

Ram establishes new commercial truck division

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Filed under: , , , ,

To better go after the work truck market that its rivals Ford and General Motors have dominated for some time, the Ram Truck brand of Chrysler is starting a new sub-line of work vehicles called Ram Commercial. Rather than carrying the full Ram Commercial name, each model in the new lineup would wear the Tradesman trim level, which means that the Ram 1500 Tradesman is disappearing for retail buyers only and will still be available for commercial or fleet buyers.

The Ram Commercial lineup will consist of current products like the Ram 1500 Tradesman, Ram Heavy Duty Tradesman pickups and chassis cab trucks, and the Ram C/V Tradesman cargo van, but it will also be adding a new full-size van called the 2014 Ram ProMaster Tradesman based off the Fiat Ducato. There is no word if Ram Commercial will be getting other vans from the Fiat Professional brand, but Fiat’s line of work vehicles also includes the Scudo, Doblo and Florino. One of the latter two models would make the most sense going up against small cargo-friendly vehicles like the Ford Transit Connect and Mini Clubvan.

Ram Commercial buyers will also benefit from the BusinessLink and “On The Job” programs. Both programs make it easier for businesses to purchase and maintain their fleets.

Scroll down
to read Chrysler’s press release on the new Ram Commercial line.
