The winter weather can put a lot on your battery. Car batteries are full of toxic chemicals and have to be dealt with specially when they die. The green thing to do is to squeeze as much life out of them as possible and decrease the overall amount of batteries that you are going to need in your lifetime. Here are some tips for that.
If the battery is more than five years old and there’s any sign of it struggling to start the car, get it replaced. Some will struggle on for a bit but many won’t. It’s much better done at your convenience than as a roadside emergency.
Check that everything electrical is turned off when you park up – even an interior light, boot light, or radio left on overnight can kill a battery when it’s cold.
Avoid short trips because each start of the engine during short trips will use energy from the battery, but it can take up to 30 minutes for the car battery to get fully charged. This means short trips can diminish the amount of capacity of the battery.
The addition of the Regal nameplate to the Buick family goes back 40 years, but even today, the Regal’s heritage as a sporty, mid-size luxury vehicle is strong as ever. Introduced in 1973, the Century Regal, as it was originally called, served as an upmarket model in the Century line and one of GM’s first “personal luxury” cars. Throughout four decades, and now in its fifth generation, the Regal carries on its sweeping design, dynamic driving experience and powertrain leadership. With today’s focus on all-passenger comfort, safety and technology, the latest Regal comes standard with an eight-inch color touch display featuring IntelliLink in-vehicle connectivity.

Ever wonder how much work and thought goes into creating an app for cars?

With that said, Chevrolet is committed to finding the best app solution for their vehicles. And to make things a little interesting, why not make their search into a competition.

Of the many ways to get the attention of others in the car manufacturing industry, style is definitely one of them. Apparently, the Buick Riviera concept vehicle did just that when it made its global introduction at Auto Shanghai 2013 in April. Besides looking down right slick, it also featured a variety of features which included state-of-the-art infotainment system, advanced propulsion and safety features. In light of all of its features, where the Riviera really stood out was with its overall design which won it the Red Dot Award in the “Design Concept” category. Out of all the other concept vehicles that were presented, the Riviera was the only one that really stood out of the crowd, making the decision a simple one. What was really interesting about this particular concept vehicle is the likely hood to see similar styled vehicles available in the near future. Regardless if they are going to be this futuristic or not, it’s still nice to see something this refreshing and knowing how vehicles could possibly be.
