self drivingIn the eighteenth century, the idea of a car would have sounded like an absolute impossibility. Now in the twenty first century, cars themselves are everywhere, but we find ourselves grappling with the idea that self-driving cars are actually a legitimate possibility. It seems that everyday a new company is announcing its plans to release a self-driving car in the next five years. Are you ready for this change?

Volvo Joints the Self-Driving Ranks

Volvo Car Group is working to build and sell a car that can pilot itself down highways. The company will begin testing cars next year in Sweden, London, and China, and hopes for a 2021 release date. But Volvo still needs collaborators, unlike BMW, which is working with Intel Corp. and Mobileye NV. Volvo may know a thing or two about building quality vehicles, but they need help tackling the software and cloud services needed to develop a self-driving car.

2434365 - safety recall notice against a white background

When 27-year-old Anton Yelchin, the beloved Star Trek actor, was found dead, crushed by his SUV, the community began once again calling for more efficient vehicle recall procedures. Yelchin was killed by his 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee when it rolled backward down his steep driveway and pinned him against a brick wall. This occurred in June, and the car had been recalled by Fiat Chrysler in April due to gear-shifting problems. The accident is still under investigation, but it is widely believed that the car’s gear issues led to Yelchin’s ultimate death, serving as a tragic reminder of the critical nature of many recalls.

While it’s certainly helpful to know and appreciate why your car can speed up, slow down, stop, and turn, that knowledge doesn’t dictate whether you can accelerate. With the right mechanic and new handy friends, you never need to read a car manual. But wouldn’t it be neat to be able to spout off some information about the transmission of your car? Here’s the simple version of what you need to know, and who knows, it might come in handy one day.

carsIf trying to contribute to a conversation about a car’s differential just causes you to scratch your head in bewilderment, you definitely aren’t alone! Car experts have long been trying to help drivers understand the inner workings of a car’s differential, but it isn’t nearly as commonly known as the brakes or exhaust. Here is a brief summary of everything you should know to finally join in on that differentials conversation.

Defining the Differential

Each part of a car serves a very important and specific purpose. A car’s differential, for example, maintains three rather significant responsibilities. First, the differential directs the engine’s power to the wheels to keep your car moving along down the road. Second, it is the final gear reduction to slow the transmission’s rotations. And finally, the differential allows the wheels to spin at different speeds, which is how the term “differential”in other words, differentlygot its name.
