2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year

  2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year: Tesla Model S Shocking Winner: Proof Positive that America Can Still Make (Great) Things   By Angus MacKenzie | Photos By Andrew Yeadon, Motor Trend Staff | From the January 2013 issue of Motor Trend The 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year is one of the quickest American four-doors ever built. It drives like a sports car, eager and agile and instantly responsive. But it’s also as smoothly effortless as a Rolls-Royce, can carry almost as much stuff as a Chevy Equinox, and is more efficient than a Toyota Prius. Oh, and it’ll sashay up to the valet at a luxury hotel like a supermodel working a Paris catwalk. By any measure, the Tesla Model S is a truly remarkable automobile, perhaps the most accomplished all-new luxury car since the original Lexus LS 400. That’s why it’s our 2013 Car of the Year.Read more: http://www.motortrend.com/oftheyear/car/ 1301_2013_motor_trend_car_of_the_year_tesla_model_s/viewall.html#ixzz2Kt6rEv7t...

Do Your Car Keys Weigh Too Much?

Keychains are a great way to organize all the little things you need in day-to-day life, but adding too much to yours could damage your ignition and prevent you from starting your car. How much is too much? Probably less than you might think. Car Talk‘s Click and Clack suggest limiting your load to 9 keys or less, but we’ve heard that 3 Lbs is often the weight ignitions are designed to bear without undue wear. Why is weight bad for your ignition? The weighted key will put stress on the tumblers, particularly as the car bounces and shakes down the road, causing them to wear irregularly and eventually fail. A worn tumbler doesn’t engage the locking mechanism in the precise way necessary, meaning your key will no longer be able to turn the lock. To prevent long-term wear on our ignitions, we separate our car keys from our general key chains, leaving just the car key and key fob to place as little load as possible on the ignition. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. Republished...
