Nissan To Cut Down Jobs In Japan

Nissan To Cut Down Jobs In Japan

In the United States, the Big Three are experiencing financial problems due to reduced sales as Japanese brands had increased their stake in the U.S. auto market. These problems have resulted to a massive workforce reduction. Ford, General Motors and Chrysler also closed down plants and reduced working hours and production to recover from losses that they suffered.

But the U.S.? Big Three are not the only car companies which have announced that they will be cutting down jobs. Nissan, the third largest Japanese car company, has recently announced that they will be implementing a voluntary retirement program which will reduce their workforce by as much as 1,500 blue and white collar jobs.

The said program will commence in June this year. It will be available for workers aged 45 years old or older and holding non-managerial positions. The said program is the effect of declining domestic sales for Nissan. In Japan, the sale of non-mini vehicles is experiencing a sharp decline as the demand decreases and the competition grows stronger.

Aside from the retirement program, Nissan will also be reducing their production in two of their assembly plants in Japan. This announcement came after the Japanese company announced that they will be opening new plants in Japan to meet the demand in the United States. Last September, the woes being faced by Nissan led to the closing down of one of the three lines at one of their facility in Southern Japan. In the United States, Nissan also resorted to offering early retirement program to recover from the losses it has incurred the past year.

Last year, Nissan suffered terrible losses and especially during the last quarter of 2006. During that period, the Japanese brand posted 22 percent reduction in terms of sales compared to 2005. It is only in recent months that Nissan appeared to be gaining popularity once again among American car buyers as their sales figure has been increasing month after month. This improvement on their sales in the United States may be the result of the turnaround plan being implemented by Nissan.

Currently, under the restructuring plan, Nissan aims to sell 4.2 million vehicles all over the world until the year 2009. If Nissan’s sales performance for the first months of 2007 is an indication of what’s in store for them, the success may act as efficient EBC Greenstuff brake pads are in arresting Nissan’s downward slide.

One of the reasons for the declining Nissan sales in the United States and in Japan is the scarcity of models. This means that consumers have fewer choices with Nissan unlike Honda and Toyota which offers a wide range of exciting vehicles. In the United States, Nissan’s inability to provide hybrid vehicles has hurt them and let Honda and Toyota leave them behind. To turn their fate around, Nissan announced that they will be offering a diesel powered Nissan vehicle in the year 2010. Nissan has also offered a Nissan Altima Hybrid for the 2007 model year.

New Face For Budweiser

New Face For Budweiser

New Face For Budweiser

When Dale Earnhardt Jr. announced earlier this year that he will be leaving the team that his father started, among the hottest topic in the paddocks is where the most popular NASCAR driver today will go next season. And since Budweiser has been Jr.’s primary sponsor since he came into the Nextel Cup, it was also an issue whether the brewer will accompany Junior to his new team. It is now official that Jr. will be driving for Hendrick Motorsports next year and that Budweiser will no longer be his sponsor.

Recently, it was announced that Kasey Kahne will replace Dale Earnhardt Jr. as the face of Budweiser in the Nextel Cup Series. According to Bloomberg, Anheuser Busch, the makers of Budweiser, has entered an agreement with Gillett Evernham Motorsports. Kahne is with the team and his No. 9 car will be boasting the Budweiser logo next season.

Budweiser will be the young NASCAR driver’s primary sponsor. But aside from the beer brand, his car will also sport small decal from Allstate Insurance Co. Kasey Kahne has been sponsored by the said insurance company.

Marc Ganis, the president of SportsCorp Ltd., a sports marketing company, said that Kahne is a good choice for Budweiser. “It’s a good pickup by Budweiser,” said Ganis according to Bloomberg. “He’s an up and comer and he’s very charismatic. Recognizing that he’s not on the same level as Dale Earnhardt Jr., he’s still a very good pick for them.”

Budweiser meanwhile is also upbeat about sponsoring the young driver. “Budweiser has a long and storied history with NASCAR and some of its most successful drivers. We’re excited about Kasey’s ability to add to that outstanding lineage,” said Tony Ponturo, the vice president for global media and sports marketing, Anheuser-Busch, Inc. said in a news release.

Ponturo also said that they will be paying a bit more to Gillett Evernham than to DEI. “It is a little bit up,” Ponturo said. “You’re going to have to pay the right price and obviously for the top teams there’s a cost to doing business. I think it’s fair for us and obviously Gillett and Evernham feel it’s fair to them or they wouldn’t have accepted the deal,” he added further.

Meanwhile, some may be concerned about Kasey’s image as he is the face of Allstate Insurance and now he will also be advertising Budweiser. To this, Kahne has this to say: “You probably don’t know me too well if you don’t know that I’m a beer guy. As far as the image and things, when I came here in 2004 I wasn’t ready to go to Nextel Cup with all the fans. I didn’t expect it, I wasn’t ready for it and it hit me quick. It was really exciting for myself. Since then you get more and more used to it as time goes and now with this, it’s going to elevate it even more.”

The driver is having a dismal season this year on his No. 9 car after posting the most wins in Nextel Cup last season. Kasey Kahne though will be looking to improve his performance next season on his Dodge parts-equipped car with Budweiser sponsorship.

Taming The Gas Monster

Taming The Gas Monster

Taming The Gas Monster

Yep, the price of gas is enough to make a grown man cry, almost. I know. I’m a grown man, and I well up every time I slide my debit card through the slot in one of those danged gas pumps, looking so much like a smug alien life form with a long tube stuck in its ear. I feel my teenage daughter’s pain when she laments how much of her meager part-time paycheck goes to keeping gas in her 1994 Honda. It sucks.

Billions of words have been written and spoken about the dreadful state of gas supplies and the ever-increasing cost of oil. Fingers pointed, curses uttered, lamentations wailed. It’s a sad thing to see a whole nation brought to its emotional knees by a dark, yucky goo. But, here we are.

Okay, there is some solace to be had by employing new technologies, such as electric hybrids and Hydrogen-On-Demand. And, for the eternally optimistic, there is a teeny pinpoint of light at the end of that long, dark, gooey tunnel when we consider that some day (hopefully in our collective lifetimes), there will be fuel efficient cars manufactured by some one, somewhere in the world and that we’ll be able to afford them.

But that isn’t going to do a darn thing to help me pay for my next trip to the beach, or help my daughter pay for her next trip to the mall. Still, I shall not go quietly! And rather than just growl and rattle the freshly painted fences of the political-industrial oil-fueled country club, I’m going to gird up my financially-eviscerated loins and do battle with that ugly, unyielding Gas Monster. Grrrrrrr.

I’m going to save gas. That’s right. I’m going to withhold my love, and doggedly squeeze every possible mile I can from my tank, thumbing my nose at that alien life form with a long hose stuck in its ear. Here are six things I’m going to do, just in case you want to join me in this battle for the freedom to drive unafraid.

Kill The Jack Rabbit. According to the USDOT, the single biggest waster of fuel is those abrupt “jack-rabbit” lurches that people do when leaving a red light or stop sign. At 25% efficiency, gas engines are already the most wasteful technology in the industrialized world, and when you floor the accelerator you reduce the already-meager efficiency of that engine by as much as 50%. What’s up with that craziness, anyway? Not only does it startle my aging brain, it’s dangerous and rude. Where the heck are you going? What, you just can’t wait to get to the next light? Rela-a-a-ax on the take-off. The world will be calmer, you’ll reduce pollution and you’ll use a LOT less gas.

Smooth Out The Ride. The next most wasteful driving tactic is what has come to be known as “aggressive” driving. You know, those morons that like to rush up behind you, riding your tail and then zooming by you when you switch lanes, all the while perched smugly behind the wheel. It’s almost like some form of societal penis envy, except I see as many women doing it as men. Have you ever ridden with one of those quacks? My God, it’s nerve-racking! And stupid. Something like 60% of all traffic accidents in heavily congested driving areas is a result of this anti-social behavior. C’mon, be kind to your fellow drivers and your wallet. Keep it steady on the road.

Slow Down. Yes, you’ve heard it before. We’ve all heard it before. But, dang it, we’re just obsessed with getting there faster, wherever “there” is. Aside from the fact that your heart will appreciate a slower pace, you can dramatically reduce your gas consumption. According to research done by the engineers at “How It Works”, the fuel efficiency difference between driving at 50 mph and driving at 80 mph can be as much as 50%! Can you say “OUCH!”? Don’t go overboard here and become one of those rubber-necking sight-seers on the highway. Those same engineers caution that going too slow can also be inefficient. Today’s car engines are designed to be driven efficiently between 35 and 60 mph. Above or below that starts eating into your wallet.

The “Tire-Gauge” Effect. Okay, this is not a political comment, but the truth is, keeping your tires properly inflated is a damn fine energy strategy, regardless of how much political fodder it provides. According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, you can improve your gas mileage by 3 – 5 percent by keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure. Plus, under-inflated tires wear out a lot quicker and have to be replaced. And guess what. 28% of the basic passenger tire is manufactured from petroleum products, aka OIL! Air is cheap. Gas and oil are not. Don’t be a dummy.

Air Is Good. In fact, without it your engine won’t work at all. Without getting too technical, it’s important to note that as inefficient as a car engine is, it does its job a lot better when it has an abundant supply of air. This is even more important with cars manufactured after 1996, because the On Board Diagnostic system is programmed to require a certain air-gas mixture to run properly. When you mess with the air supply, the OBD steps in and assumes there’s something wrong with the engine and responds with a tad more gas to compensate. If the airflow gets bad enough, the OBD will alert you with a warning light, but you can burn through a LOT of gas before that happens. Keep your filter clean.

Reduce Friction. I’ve already mentioned that 75% of energy potential in gasoline is wasted in a typical gas engine. A big part of that waste comes from friction between the engine parts. That’s why we put oil in our cars. If a car runs out of oil, the engine will literally freeze up. If a car gets low on oil, or if the lubricating ability of the oil (called viscosity) gets broken down, the engine will continue to run, but it generates a LOT more heat and it takes more energy to keep the part moving. Waste, waste, waste. Not having the proper oil level in your engine is kind of like walking around with sand in your underwear. You can do it, but man it’s painful and awkward. Engines feel pain too, sort of. Be kind to your engine. Check your oil regularly and get it changed on time.

You’ll notice that none of these tactics require you to spend much money. Other than buying a clean air filter and a few quarts of oil, it’s all a matter of style. And that style can save you as much as 25% when it comes to the amount of gas you use. Granted, we won’t kill the Gas Monster with these methods, but we can slow his hungry ass down a bit. I’ll go for that.

Baby Benz’ Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Baby Benz’ Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Baby Benz’ Celebrates 25th Anniversary

This year is the 25th anniversary of the original Mercedes-Benz 190 which is branded as the baby Benz in the range. The Mercedes-Benz 190 may be little but it has been able to make big changes in Stuttgart and across the entire automotive industry.

Juergen Hubbert, branded as ?Dr. Mercedes? and former boss of the Teutonic brand recalled that the launching of the baby Mercedes led to an intense debate. It should be noted that back in the 1980s, the definition of luxury car only applies to the likes of the big Benz S-Class and slightly smaller sized E-Class. Any size smaller than the accepted size for luxury cars are already sacrilegious to the segment. However that was before the wake of the second Mideast oil crisis. When the oil prices started increasing the consumers started demanding for more fuel efficient and smaller vehicles—that’s when the baby Mercedes Benz 190 was born.

It is not actually surprising why some folks at Mercedes Benz where afraid of producing baby Benz. First of all, Mercedes Benz is a brand that is renowned for producing luxury vehicles and high quality Mercedes parts such as its range of Mercedes clutch and creating an economical, small size Benz is something that will definitely affect brand image. Luckily for Mercedes Benz since it turned out that its customers cared more for quality rather than the mere luxury features that Mercedes vehicles possess so it was not hard for the German brand when it finally launched its baby Mercedes Benz 190 in the market.

Actually what Mercedes Benz did was to downsize the S-Class and create a small version basing on its concept. The 190 is a far cry from the luxury Mercedes vehicles that people have for years associated with the brand. As a fact, the most basic 190 models were equipped with cloth seats that come with mechanical adjusters less the electronic and mechanical particulars that are normally associated with a Mercedes vehicle. The wood and leather used yielded to inexpensive plastic. And that’s not all! The exterior design was so clunky and awkward. If you think that is worst just wait till you see the interior layout which was unpleasantly inefficient. It has very little or no legroom for back seat passengers. For a luxury brand to create just a dismal baby may be considered rather ironic.

Despite the flaws that the baby Benz possess it has become an immediate hit with consumers around the world. The explanation for this is quite obvious; Mercedes Benz has build a reputation rooted on quality and performance which means that whatever vehicle it will produce buyers will always have this notion that if it’s Mercedes then it must be a quality car. Luckily for the baby Benz since its parent has built for it quite a reputation which helps it to survive.

The baby Benz may lack all the luxury features that his other big siblings possess but it has been successful in demonstrating that size should never be made as an issue in measuring a luxury car. Baby Benz has led the most dramatic change that the automotive industry has ever seen. Back in the early ?80s its possible to count the marque of various models on one hand but today you will surely run short of fingers and toes with the wide range of models that Mercedes Benz has including the classic S and E, the 190’s descendant the C-Class, the SLK, SL, and SLR, the CLK and CL and the list goes on.

February 2007 Sales Figures For Mercedes-benz Reported

February 2007 Sales Figures For Mercedes-benz Reported

February 2007 Sales Figures For Mercedes-benz Reported

The time has come once again to evaluate the performance of auto makers. Sales figures from different auto industry players have already been announced and while it is a given that some will be winners and some may see decrease in the number of units sold, this monthly evaluation is always a good information source for those following closely the trends in the auto industry.

Mercedes-Benz USA reported that they have sold 17,304 new vehicles for the month of February. The sales figure is lower than their performance last year for the same period. It can be remembered that last year’s output broke their sales record for the month of February. While their sales figure for the month of February this year is lower than last year’s, the car maker saw an increase in their year-to-date total number of vehicles sold. With a strong sale in January, Mercedes-Benz USA posted a 15.2 percent increase from last year through the same period.

Out of the more than 17,000 vehicles, 11,890 of them are passenger cars. The car maker’s C and E-Class units are two of the faster selling models from the Mercedes-Benz lot. Combined, the models posted a 30.9 percent increase in sales over last year’s sales output for the same period. The demand for these models has grown so that it can be likened to the demand for high performance Volvo ball joints. Another model line which has showed an improvement in terms of sales output is the Mercedes Benz M-Class. This family of luxury light trucks posted a 12.8 percent increase over last year’s February sales figures. Last year, during the month of February, Mercedes-Benz USA only managed to sell 55 units of the luxury SUV G-Class, this year though, the luxury car maker sold 172 units which is a 212.7 percent increase.

The car maker also made good performance in terms of selling pre-owned vehicles.

It can be remembered that Mercedes-Benz has posted record sales figure for the whole year in 2006. Last year, they have sold a total of 248,080 units while going on a streak of 13 years of consecutive sales growth.

Environmentally Friendly Cars – Full, Parallel, Series, Plug-ins Hybrids Explained

Environmentally Friendly Cars – Full, Parallel, Series, Plug-ins Hybrids Explained

Environmentally Friendly Cars – Full, Parallel, Series, Plug-ins Hybrids Explained

Despite the influx of TV commercials and advertisements on hybrid cars, there is still much mystery about them. Many still do not fully understand what hybrid cars are, except that you know they are more fuel efficient, some use electric energy, some even use no gasoline as fuel, and they all emit much less toxic fumes into the ozone. And they are fondly known as green cars which look futuristic, with aerodynamic designs to boot. And that many of the top car manufacturers of the world produce them. There are brands that top the charts like Toyota Prius, and Honda Insight, and the latest kid on the block is the Chevy Tahoe SUV.

Thankfully, there are a few types of hybrid cars, so you are indeed spoilt for choices. Japanese, American and European Hybrid cars flood the market. But more importantly, you need to understand at least from a functional perspective how these few types of hybrid cars work. Essentially, a Hybrid Car is one which uses two or more forms of power sources to drive the engine.

The Full hybrid is one which can propel forward regardless of whether the hybrid car is at low speed or high speed. Essentially a full hybrid car, is capable of driving using only the electric motor as power source.

The Plug-in Hybrid Car has certain similar characteristics of hybrid cars. They are also are very similar to electric vehicles. In essence they are a cross between both. Plug-in hybrid cars must be recharged externally by connecting a plug to a power source. The combustion engine in plug-in hybrid vehicles is used only as a back up. The Plug-in hybrids can run solely on batteries if you so choose to. The only inconvenience is that the Plug-in hybrid needs to be plugged in daily for recharging.

The Series Hybrid Car has a generator turned on by a fuel engine which either work as a battery charger for the motor or charge batteries. In turn, these batteries work to give energy to the electric motor that propels the transmission, meaning that the series hybrid car most often do not need to use the fuel engine to get power.

The Parallel Hybrid Car does use gasoline fuel at times. The fuel tank gives gasoline to the engine and electric batteries give power to a motor. In parallel, as the name implies, the two motors gives energy to propel the car forward.

Most Hybrid Cars nowadays are parallel hybrid cars. Let us take for example the Toyota Prius, Honda Insight the Lexus GS450, Ford Escape are all fueled hybrids, meaning that they do consume fuel, albeit a fraction of the amount compared to conventional cars.

With such a wide range of hybrid cars available in the market, they hybrid car is indeed a trend here to stay. What you choose should match you driving habits, your lifestyle needs and most importantly, your budget. What with US President Elect driving a hybrid car and endorsing environmentally friendly hybrid cars too.

Seven Defensive Driving Techniques That  Could Save Your Life

Seven Defensive Driving Techniques That Could Save Your Life

Seven Defensive Driving Techniques That Could Save Your Life

You reckon you’re a safe driver, right? No need to enrol in defensive driving classes? It is true that a clear driving record and no involvement in dangerous traffic accidents probably means you are a fairly good driver.

However, serious accidents are becoming more and more common, and are often not the fault of those innocent casulaties who are badly injured. Learning basic defensive driving techniques can greatly improve your chances of avoiding death and injury and remaining safe on the road.

Options for learning defensive driving techniques abound. Plenty of driving schools offer defensive driver education, as well as advanced driving programs and online traffic safety courses.

Exhaustive research and analysis into driving accidents and their causes has resulted in the production of the quality learning materials used to teach defensive driving techniques. Research now shows that drivers who adopt defensive driving as a matter of course have a statistically better chance of avoiding serious injury whilst driving on the roads.

Seven Good Defensive Driving Techniques

1. Always use a seat belt. Statistics show that wearing a seat belt greatly improves the chances of surviving a serious road accident. Many countries regard driving without a seat belt as a traffic violation, making it illegal to drive without a seat belt.

2. Anticipate danger by expanding the line of sight and watching the road ahead. Drivers who adopt defensive driving techniques like this, and leave a good gap between vehicles, are able to brake early and take evasive action in time to avoid danger. It also allows plenty of time to notice others entering a freeway or driving through an intersection. Even on a green light, it is still wise to look for other drivers who may be illegally trying beat a red light.

3. Avoid internal distractions. Making sure your driving mirrors are set before you take off is vital for a clear view in both directions. This also avoids the distraction of adjusting them whilst driving. Don’t talk on the telephone, change the CD player or flick between radio stations. In fact, avoid any distracting activity at all which might take your attention away from the main activity, which is driving safely.

4. Watch yourself in heavy traffic. Experts on defensive driving techniques suggest the greatest risk is when drivers find themselves among a large pack of cars. One careless move by any car in the pack has the potential to affect everyone else. The way to avoid an accident is to safely steer away from the pack of cars towards the front.

5. Steer clear of heavy vehicles. Watch carefully for heavy vehicles in your rear view mirror, and avoid driving in front of or beside them. Particulary avoid trucks with heavy, unsecure loads, especially when cornering or rounding bends.

6. Drive with two hands on the wheel. Defensive drivers always grip the steering wheel securely with their hands at the nine and three o’clock positions. This position ensures maximum control of your vehicle at all times.

7. Don’t travel in the ?blind spot? of another vehicle. ?Blind spots? can be real trap. A good rule of thumb when overtaking or following other traffic is to remember ?if you can’t see their mirrors, they can’t see you!?

Adopting good defensive driving techniques is like riding a horse. Once learnt and integrated into your daily driving habits, they will stand you in good, safe stead for the rest of your life.

So why should you acquire good defensive driving techniques? That’s easy. To avoid serious trauma and injury to you and your loved ones, usuallycaused by other irresponsible drivers.

Public Auction Car ? How To Get One

Public Auction Car ? How To Get One

Public Auction Car ? How To Get One

Have you ever wondered what happens to those cars that the police confiscate from criminals? Or those cars that have been abandoned at the side of the road and have to be towed away at public expense? Well, typically they end up at public car auctions, where people can pick up some good deals for not a lot of money. Welcome to the world of the public auction car a.k.a savings on wheels.

But that’s not the only kinds of cars that will be for sale at these auctions! You’ll also find cars that have been repossessed because the former owner couldn’t keep up the payments, cars that used to form the fleet of rental car companies, and best of all, cars that used to form the fleet of the police and government workers.

A public auction car needs to be sold quickly and efficiently, and the way to do that is to hold an auction where people can come and kick the tires, take a look under the hood, and then drive away in a nice new ride (or be towed away by someone just looking for a place to cannibalize parts!)

You can attend these auctions in person – there are about 40 sites around the country where these are held – or you can attend them at home, from the comfort of your own computer.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive public auction car, check out the web for these auction sites. You’ll find photos of the car, their specs, and their minimum bid price – which can be pretty low. Of course you’ll be competing against other people so sometimes that bid can go up pretty high – you’ll need to be patient and know when to fold and walk away. Don’t get caught up in the adrenalin rush of outbidding someone who is trying to take ‘your’ car – although that happens more at live auctions than online ones, it’s a definite danger for overly competitive types.
