The indications given on the dashboard are the main way in which the vehicle communicates with its driver.

Double Down on Reliability: Toyota's HiAce vs. RegiusAce

As the economy improves in many African countries, more people and goods are moving about, whether to school, university, work, or shopping. Those people and goods aren’t going to get here and there without capable and reliable transportation, but fewer than ten percent of the population have the means to purchase and maintain a private automobile.

Indeed, with a continental population of over one billion people and just 65 million private automobiles, Africa is the perfect place to establish far-reaching public transportation systems. Aside from South Africa, however, public transportation systems, such as rail and municipal bus lines, do not exist. Even in places with rail and bus lines, these just aren’t extensive enough to meet the needs of the hundreds of millions in need of transportation. What a perfect explanation for the boom in private transportation collectives, many of which employ passenger and commuter vans in the Toyota HiAce series.

Own a Piece of History – Tips for Buying Classic Cars

Automobile style and technology is constantly evolving. Since the invention of the automobile, practically everything has changed, and the only thing that has remained the same is the driver. Many people have come to appreciate the historical significance of automobiles that have long since been retired.

Used Japanese Car

Classic cars are something of a moving work of art.

Japanese Automaker Names, Pronunciation, and Meanings

Today, as one of the premier used Japanese automobile exporters in the country, we thought it would be interesting to talk about Japanese automakers themselves. For example, have you ever wondered how the Japanese say what we know as “Mazda,” or what “Nissan” actually means? Here’s a little Japanese lesson then, centered on popular Japanese automakers.

To start with, realize that the Japanese alphabet, including Kana, Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji characters, do not convert easily to the modern Latin Alphabet, “a, b, c, d, etc.” Certain vowel sounds are similar when converted to Latin, and their pronunciation is, more or less, as follows: A as in “father,” E as in “every,” I as in “macaroni,” O as in “only,” and U as in “should.” Another way to think about it is this mnemonic “Ah, we should get old,” which orders the vowels A, I, U, E, O. Ok, let’s get started! Continue reading “Japanese Automaker Names, Pronunciation, and Meanings” »

Choosing Between All-Wheel Drive and Two-Wheel Drive

Way back in the archives of automotive history, there was a simple vehicle consisting of three wheels, two of which were driven by a single-speed transmission and an internal combustion engine. The Mercedes-Benz Patent Motorwagen powertrain was so simple, in fact, that it didn’t even need a clutch. Of course, fast-forward to the modern automobile, and it’s nearly the difference between a paper airplane and the Space Shuttle.

Over the last 120 years, major advances have been made in power, speed, and efficiency, most of which goes unnoticed by us, but there are still choices to be made. The modern automobile, in its many variations, comes with an engine, transmission, four wheels, power brakes and steering, and a myriad other comfort, convenience, and safety options. One option on many vehicles today is all-wheel drive. What is it, and what isn’t it? Finally, do you need it?
