Many people are skeptic about handing their car keys to the Valet Services present outside the restaurants and rightly so. A Lamborghini Aventador worth $400,000 was seen blazing in flames, after a Valet took it for a joyride, near the Miami Beach. The incident occurred at the intersection of the Lincoln Mall and the Michigan Avenue. We do not have extensive details regarding the incident, except that the Valet revved Aventador’s V-12 engine to show off. The moment was captured in a video by a surrounding witness, which further shows a man arriving just in time to extinguish the flames. Fortunately for the valet, no major damage was done and the vehicle was moved away from the intersection of Lincoln Road Mall soon after the incident. The video also shows car’s interior to be intact; however, no word on the exact condition of the valet or the Lamborghini Aventador has…

A comprehensive vehicle insurance policy will have several possible coverage categories. Below you find the categories of liability coverage, collision coverage personal injury protective coverage and comprehensive coverage. In addition to explaining what the types of coverage are for, we’ll also discuss the amount of coverage that you should think about getting. 1) Property Damage Liability Coverage Property Damage Liability Coverage covers damage caused by you or somebody else driving your vehicle.

Your state will mandate the minimum coverage amount you need to have and you might want a higher level. If you had only $20,000, for example, and you totaled someone’s brand new vehicle, that amount…

There are several warning signs that your car’s shocks are on their way out. A couple of signs are excessive body lean in turns, or that the car’s front dives down hard when braking. Another example is your car bottoming out over railroad tracks (or other dips in the road) and continuing to bounce well after the fact. And it may not be so dramatic. Because shocks wear out over time, you might get used to these symptoms but deep down you know somethings wearing out. Here’s what you should know. Shock absorbers do not actually absorb shocks First, what we refer to as shock absorbers are really “dampeners,” they don’t really absorb “shocks”!  The devices in a vehicle’s suspension that absorb shocks and bumps are the vehicle’s springs. Shock absorbers are hydraulic or mechanical drives that prevent springs from bouncing around after a big bump. Shock absorbers serve as…

Recently, it was announced that five UK citizens had been arrested as part of the largest car insurance fraud investigation in British history. Featuring six separate but coordinated insurance claims worth £144,000, this case underlines the challenge facing insurers when they appraise claims and the reasons why they apply such stringent terms and conditions to their policies. While it may be one thing to defraud insurers, there is nothing stopping car-owners from adopting a proactive approach and actively reducing their operational costs. So long as drivers remain within the law and prioritise their long-term savings, this can be a lucrative exercise that drives significantly lower ownership costs. How to reduce the cost of car-ownership To help you out, here are simple steps that will help you to reduce the cost of car-ownership over time:  – Negate the impact of Unplanned Repairs and Maintenance While there are costs associated with planned…

It is more than 15 years since Peugeot’s GTi badge made its last foray in the family hatchback sector, and this may come as a surprise given the brand’s reputation as being synonymous with the so-called ‘hot hatch’ market. The new 308 GTi made its long-awaited debut in the marketplace last month, boasting a spectacular visual design alongside an incredibly high performance specification. Many believe that this could herald a renaissance in the hot hatch market, while also re-establishing Peugeot as a force in the sector. 3 Reasons why Peugeot’s Hot Hatch era is back With this in mind, we look at three reasons why Peugeot’s Hot Hatch era is back. These include: – The new Model can build on the relative success of the 208 GTi While Peugeot’s new offering represents the brands’ first GTI-badged family hatchback since 2000, it has made waves in the market in recent times.…
