My comfortable second hand car

My comfortable second hand car

Just because it is not a brand new and shiny car, with amazing upholstered plastic covered seats that doesn’t mean that my 2016 BMW 730d isn’t worth the price I paid for. 2016 BMW 730d My  BMW 730d  is a second hand automatic car with only 1 000 km  .It is actually a bargain considering the price I paid for it .All I ever wanted was something to get me from point A to point B, but I got way extra, more than what I had hoped for. How does it drive? I thought buying a second hand car meant that it would be rickety and old, needing a little push to get started but I was wrong. My car is comfortable and still looks good as new, the engine roars to life at first ask and the power in the steering gives me a sense of pride. The key of the BMW 7-Series is definitely worth a mention as it is more of a smart device than a car key. The fob bears a remarkable resemblance to a smartphone with its screen displaying car status. You are also able to remotely start the car as well as set your temperature preferences before you get in. Performance The engine operates in silence and very little engine noise is audible in the cabin. Under that long bonnet sits a turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine .There are various driving modes to choose from, depending on what you want to achieve, and these include ECO Pro (optimise efficiency), Comfort (optimise comfort), Sport (optimise performance) and Adaptive (damper control, steering and transmission adapts independently...
A solid Landing with the new Mitsubishi Outlander

A solid Landing with the new Mitsubishi Outlander

Courtesy of Mitsubishi Rivonia and their friendly gorgeous sales executive Noelle I was well on my way after an intense introduction from this beautiful passionate Mits representative. And what better way to explore this Outlander, but in the city’s overcast, cold, dreary weather which we’ve recently been experiencing.  With this ideal opportunity to test the comfort and safety of this beautiful structured giant, off I drove on my high horse into the City of Johannesburg. The 2.4-litre 16-Valve DOHC MIVEC is capable of 123kW@6000rpm with a claimed consumption of 8.2L/100km* and emissions of 192grams/km.  It’s a vehicle that ties the knot between the 4×4 ability of an outdoor 4×4 with an extravagant SUV. Journey comfort is all and more in this vehicle and whether you’re traveling down SA’s potholed-plagued roads, splattering your way through rivers or negotiating via stone-laden muck paths, the Outlander heroically immerses everything thrown at it; you will of course have the distinctive motion of a smooth sailing SUV. All models come with a fitted surround sound system which transitions your relaxation experience to a whole new driving sensation. It’s Ginormous, yes and perhaps a little flashy but you could equal that allegation at furthermost large SUVs. Guess what I found, Sure, with its majestic presence and almost unprecedented physique at least you know that this beautiful creature can overcome most if not all obstacles that SA roads has to offer. Aaaaah yes, a must mention is that my kids did not once ask the famous question “Mum, are we there yet?” Why? you ask?’ because my they almost did not once take their eyes off...
Honda Civic 1.8 Comfort Line | Test Drive

Honda Civic 1.8 Comfort Line | Test Drive

Looks are not deceiving when you first set eyes on this gorgeous looking sedan. Having grown pointedly lengthier and broader than the outward-bound Civic as well as sitting significantly lower to the ground, this new addition to the Honda range has distanced itself from the unconventional styling that, more than anything else, made its predecessor a bit of a positioned choice. My overnight encounter with this elegant and attractive comfort line set the mood for night drive experience in which I indulged further by a dashboard that replaces the discordant quirky surfaces of its predecessor for something much sleeker. Skillfully motivated and now with a suitable center console and mould, the Civic feels more at ease with its switchgear placement and is easier on the eye and, yes, easily more grown up, too. The Civics 7.0inch touchscreen can hardly be faulted especially when I indicated left and to my sheer astonishment was presented with a view of its quirky Lane Watch system which covered the passenger side, courtesy of its side mirror rear-facing camera. The entertainment system boasts a navigation system (supplied by Garmin), two USB sockets and a HDMI jack, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and an upgraded eight-speaker audio system delivers pleasurable in-car nirvana. Feeling unsafe should be of minimal concern for even with the Honda Civics delicate appearance, the new Civic hosts some of the most advanced safety technologies available in today’s motor security expertise, with an entire set of features specifically designed to keep you safe and undeniably comfortable.

Tips For Buying Your Teenager The Right Car

Tips For Buying Your Teenager The Right Car

Buying the right car for your teenager can prove to be a challenge. The process of finding a car that meets all the criteria for both teenager and parent can be an emotional and prolonged negotiation. A lot of parents out there think it is just about picking one and going with it. However, your child obviously doesn’t think like you. While your concern is the price tag when your child simply wants a “cool ride” that he or she can show off to friends. When a parent looks for a car for their teenager, a second hand car mainly comes to mind because of the price and considering the fact that your teenager can bump the car here and there. Educate Your Teenager What is important for now is to teach your teenager how to drive safely. No matter how safe and secure a car is, it is in the hands of the driver to stay out of danger. So make sure you send your teenager  to a quality driving school where he or she can get the needed education to drive a vehicle safely. The more driving school your teenager attends, the better it is in the long run. Besides this, you as a parent should impart some tips on your own to your teenager. Check the Quality of Second Hand Cars If you are going to buy a second hand car see to it that you have checked it completely and get a pre-inspection done by a certified mechanic. Also, if you are going for a low budget car, then expect to spend some amount on...
Private citizens can fix roads – and claim back from government for it.

Private citizens can fix roads – and claim back from government for it.

Justice might be on the horizon for motorists who have had their tyres murdered by potholes. A recent High-Court ruling in the Eastern Cape, ordered the Provincial Roads Department to pay restitution to farmers who perform maintenance on roads themselves – which may set a new precedent for other provinces across South Africa. There is not a motorist in Gauteng that is not frustrated by J.R.A’s inefficient turn-around time on filling and repairing potholes. Sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic on your way to work in the morning, you notice a hole in the road, no wider than a tin of beans, and without giving it a second glance you drive over it. But, 100,000 tyres later and some rain – that pint size hole has corroded into one of Johannesburg’s most notorious serial ‘tyre’ killers. That can cause accidents and insurmountable damage to vehicles. A pothole is not what you see on the surface, rather it is the structural integrity of the compact soil beneath the surface. In a 2016 poll conducted by Wheels24, Gauteng accounted for 47% of potholes in South Africa. South Africa’s pothole situation is in dire need of a solution. We cannot rely on our local government to provide the way forward – it is an initiative that we as ordinary citizens should be prepared to undertake ourselves. If it is possible in the Eastern Cape – it is possible anywhere. However, there are channels in place, that in the event you hit a pothole and damage your vehicle. You can claim from the Johannesburg Roads Agency,(J.R.A). In a recent article in the Randburg Sun Newspaper,...
