Your vehicle is not only your pride and joy; it is probably the most expensive purchase you’ve recently made as well. As such, it stands to reason that you want to look after it. Here are a few tips to help you keep your vehicle looking spick-and-span.
It’s late, you’re tired, you’re not quite sure where you are, and you need a ride home. How do you get back?
As this infographic (and accompanying article here) from The Taxi Centre shows, your answer is likely to differ wildly depending on where in the world you live. If you’re from London or New York, you’ll simply need to hail an iconic hackney or yellow cab, state your destination, and remember to tip your cabbie.
However, if you’re in Venice, Beijing, rural Thailand or Nigeria, getting home might not be so simple. Boats, bikes, rickety “share taxis” and even elephants are some of the inventive options people worldwide can rely on to get home.

Your car is the second biggest investment in life that most of us are likely to make, but too often we treat it badly. It’s used and abused on the way to work, to pick up the kids, or when you’re undertaking a last-minute, mad dash to the shops. Then, in thanks for its reliability, it sits outside in the cold or heat, gathering dust while you’re at home or work. If you consider your car an investment and representation of yourself, then here are some tips on maintaining your vehicle appropriately.
There are some people who love nothing better than spending their Sunday morning lovingly washing and polishing their car to within an inch of its life. And then there are others who don’t see the point in wasting two hours slaving over a bucket of water when the local car wash is cheap and cheerful.
I have to admit I like the new design of the Nissan Titan a lot better than the old one.
Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn unveiled the all-new 2016 TITAN XD at the Detroit Auto Show this week. This is Nissan’s bid to make an aggressive return to the full-size pickup segment. This new truck was created specifically with American consumers in mind. You can see in some ways the styling has a more traditional front grille though it definitely has some Nissan flair to it as well. The new TITAN sports a Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel and aims at a “new class” of full-size truck between current heavy-duty and light-duty offerings.
The with core planning, design and engineering of the new truck was conducted in Tennessee, California, Michigan and Arizona, and it will be assembled in Mississippi, with engines from Tennessee and Indiana.
