High-Tech Car Safety Technologies — What To Look For!

edmunds.6.500The fact that we, as humans live longer is not just because of our health, there are a lot of technologies out there that certainly do protect us and whenever we are in our cars, the technology that is packed into the vehicles is amazing.  That is what we are going to talk about, some of the best technologies in safety and what exactly is out there for you to use.

One new technology that seems to be going around and people are constantly looking to add in is tire-pressure monitoring.  The reason for this is because whenever you blow a tire, you can actually get into a car accident and that alone is not safe at all.

What the tire-pressure monitoring system is, is a series of sensors on the wheels that actually allow you to see when your tires are losing pressure.

The Low-Down On Modified Cars!

One thing that I love about cars is that there are so many different things that you can do to them to truly make them full of your personality.  You can change the color, the style and overall, the beauty of the car so that it matches in with your personality and just screams you and that is exactly what modifying your car is all about.

Modified cars – while they are expensive, they are certainly worth it if you are looking for a fantastic car that is not only cool on the outside but on the inside as well.  You want unique and different?  Well, that is what modified cars are all about.

You can change the bumpers as well as the interior and of course the exterior – you can add on a print onto the car or even something scrolled up the side.

Volvo News: Touchscreen Rear Entertainment

Volvo NewsIn this day and age, it is all about the technology that you pack into everything – honestly, if you are looking for a car, you look at what technology it has in it in addition to what the engine looks like.  If you are in the market for a computer, you look at the technology that is packed into it.  This is the technology generation and your car should be no different!

Volvo has gotten that concept and at the Chicago Auto Show they actually unveiled the brand new Rear Seat Entertainment System.  This actually features an internet connected area with Windows XP, WiFi and a 500G hard drive.

You can actually plug your computer right into your car and play all sorts of music through the car speakers – that is pretty damn cool!  It’s still under testing right now but it is almost here!

2010 Nissan GT-R Rumors!

2010 Nissan GT-R I remember when Nissan was just a small, small company that only produced small and compact cars.  Nowadays, Nissan has branched out quite a bit and have come out with some beautiful and awesome looking cars – and hybrids.  This includes the brand new 2010 Nissan GT-R.  This particular 2010 car is not only going to be an icon, but it is a hybrid car with a ton of horsepower.

One of the coolest things about the 2010 Nissan GT-R is that not only is the brand Nissan behind it, but I can tell you that this particular car looks high-class and high-end, which is weird for me to see coming out with the Nissan name.

With the price of just about one hundred thousand dollars, the brand new 2010 Nissan GT-R could be yours!

2010 BMW 535i Gran Turismo

When the 2010 BMW 535i Gran Turismo was first released, no one really knew exactly what to expect … face it, was a BMW GT, what can you expect from that?  Well, now, the 2010 BMW 535i Gran Turismo is actually extremely popular and with the $64k price tag on it … I can tell you that it is certainly a car that many people are going to want to get. 

The cool thing about the 2010 BMW 535i Gran Turismo is that while it might not be in the states until next month, you can still order it at that price.  For a BMW, for me personally, I think that $64k+ is actually a really good price.  Not only are you getting a fantastic car, but a brand that you know.

Remember – the 2010 BMW 535i Gran Turismo is a car that will get you noticed!

2011 Lexus LFA: Oh, It’s Wicked!

2011 Lexus LFA

Okay all you auto-heads out there that have just been waiting for your next fix – the brand new 2011 Lexus LFA is definitely if.  This is actually one car that it took me quite a while to wrap my entire head around, for it is by far one of the best prototypes out there.  This car has a top speed of about 202 MPH and it just looks really freakin’ cool!

This car has been described as a mystery wrapped in an enigma coated in carbon fiber and I have to say that this car is it for me.  While this car might not be a race car just yet, it is going to top the charts, just you wait.

Remember – 2011 is the year for the cars, all sorts of different and unique cars and the 2011 Lexus LFA is just one of them!

The 2010 Audi A5 Sportback: It’s Gaining Fans!

2010 Audi A5 Sportback

While the US market is not going to be able to see this particular car … I have to say that down in Frankfurt this week, the fan base for the 2010 Audi A5 Sportback is growing and growing.  The reaction is extremely positive and who knows – by the end of the day, we might be able to get the 2010 Audi A5 Sportback shipped on over to the US!

The 2010 Audi A5 Sportback is so beautiful on its own and I have to say that I love everything from the front grille all the way to the back.  The wheels are absolutely incredible, the headlights are fantastic and I have to say that the bumper kit they put on is awesome!

So if you are looking for the 2010 Audi A5 Sportback, you  might have to go overseas, but I have to say that it is probably worth it!

Cash 4 Clunkers Program: It Is Going To Live On!

Cash 4 Clunkers Program

I have to say that the biggest buzz on the internet lately is all about the Cash 4 Clunkers program.  This particular program is one of the biggest that the government has offered up and by far – I think the best.

Not only do you get to get some of those nasty and gas-guzzling cars and trucks off of the road, but you get to get people into cars that they can depend on … the best part though?  People are spending money again and that has got to be the one thing that Obama is doing that is good.

While the original budget started with one billion dollars for this particular program, another two billions dollars has passed by and I think that is actually pretty cool.  About 45% of all sales of cars and trucks right now are done via the C4C program and that is exactly why the economy is going to get better … thank god!

2010 Subaru Outback: There Is Something For Everyone!

2010 Subaru Outback If there is one thing that I have noticed about the Sabaru brand it is the fact that they truly have become a brand for people to respect.  This Japanese car brand is not only one that produces a heck of a good SUV, but it is a brand that is going to last for quite a long time … while most people actually think that this particular brand is not all that good …. I think it rocks!

The coolest thing that I think about the 2010 Subaru Outback is the inside.  The steering wheel looks awesome, the overall design of the inside is beautiful and it has to be said that the design is pretty cutting edge.  There are a lot of things that have been upgraded on the 2010 Subaru Outback and you should check them out – it is cool.

The 2010 Subaru Outback – remember, it is more than just a car, I can promise you that!
