      It has to do with the distance between the DRL light source and the turn-signal light source.

      If the two light sources are very close together then the DRL is supposed to turn off when the turn...

      Note that in the halogen picture, there is a fairly sharp line visible in the plants alongside the road above which there is almost no light. In the LED picture, this is blurry and more light is...

      GM got this right.



      Rental cars can be a problem. I unknowingly drove without outside lights on at night, in a rental US-market late-model Ford Focus. Unknown to me, this model has the...

      Look up the definition of "land barge" and you ought to get this. Very nice!

      Not even remotely close. Much, much more expensive. Hydrogen is exceptionally difficult to safely store and contain, and very costly to ship by pipeline. It can be generated "in-situ" from natural...

      ^ This. Colour shows that someone used some imagination. While some colours suit some cars better than others, I will take "a colour" over "absence of colour" any day. I refuse to buy black, white,...

      I had a Plymouth Disclaim as a loaner for a few days. 2.5 with 3 speed automatic. K-klunkers were common in my high school years.

      All of those (non-turbo) K-cars and near-K-cars had a binary...

      Most motorcycles in worldwide markets use fuel-injection, O2 sensor, 3-way catalyst. The European motorcycle emission regs are much more stringent than US EPA or even California regulations with the...

      Look closer. It's between the intake and exhaust valve, aimed directly into each cylinder. You can also see the recess in the top of the piston that the spray pattern is aimed into.

      2006 Jetta TDI, 8 years, from October 2005 to October 2013. Sold with just short of 430,000 km on it. The person who bought it did the clutch and EGR cooler and a few other things that were needed at...

      At that point ... it is purely because someone wants the bike to look a certain way. There is no properly-thought-out rationale for doing that.

      It's pretty good practice to stay clear of *any* vehicle with stuff strapped or tied to it or piled up on it.

      If it were available in our market, the Transit Custom would probably be not only my bike hauler but also my daily driver. The interior size should be close to the traditional American full-size vans...

      The dimension sheet that I found indicates cargo length about 2.2 metres at floor level and 1.95 metres at the bottom of the windows. That will be a very close fit for a normal sport bike. It should...

      Yes, the wagon has windows. I believe there is a passenger version of these. If that's the case, and you need some extra passenger-carrying capability, I'd buy the passenger version and take out the...
