Claim the true Benefits of the Motability program today

What can a new vehicle do for you? Well, if you’re currently stuck at home and having to rely on unreliable transportation, the answer is simple: quite a bit! But if you’re still figuring out all of the details of the Motability program, have you considered using your allowance to get a new vehicle?

If you’re being taken care of right now by a carer, you might feel that you won’t be able to take advantage of the car allowance at all. But we ran this scenario by the team down at Inchcape Volkswagen, and they said that they actually see it all the time. They assured us that it’s well within the lines to have a vehicle that your carer uses only for your needs, getting you to all of your appointments, running to get groceries, and making sure that you’re as comfortable as possible.

Motability program

Most people see life with a disability as this tall, tall mountain that encompasses everyone. However, we see it as a wide valley that holds many people, but their experiences are very unique. You can still have a vibrant life even as you deal with limitations, and it’s learning how to have a great life despite of those challenges that will lead to a brighter future for your entire family.

The interesting thing about the offers down at Inchcape Volkswagen is that they cover the taxes and insurance, as well as all of the servicing required to keep a new car in top condition.

You don’t have to make a quick decision, but you do need to realize the important benefits of taking this giant leap forward. How would having a brand new car leased for your needs improve your situation? Would it help you avoid delayed buses? Would you be able to let family get to work sooner than if they had to navigate traffic in order to carry out your errands? Would you feel excited to drive again, being able to go where you wanted without restraint?

It’s time to at least consider the obvious and even hidden benefits of claiming the full amount of your Motability benefit. Good luck!

Common Radiator problems to handle Straightaway

Bringing an old car to life is the stuff that DIY dreams are made of. Anybody can go out and buy a new car. But it takes time, patience, money, and energy to breathe life into a car that most people would haul to the scrap yard in a pinch. People talk endlessly about brakes and tires, of the transmission and drive train…but few people want to address the subject of radiators.

We’ve been getting a great level of insight into the radiator game from Advanced Radiators, a team that does nothing but sell radiators. They know what they’re doing and we were surprised at how little we really knew about the radiator. Sometimes we just go by what we’ve been told by folksy mechanics we grew up with. They say “Oh, just throw some water in the boot so you can top up the radiator!”

Obviously, there’s more to addressing radiator problems than this. There are some common radiator problems that you might see when you pop open the bonnet and look inside. We wanted to cover the ones you’re most likely to see, so you can avoid more serious damage. Fixing the radiator, even though it means spending quite a bit of money, ultimately means saving your car. You literally can’t run the vehicle without a strong radiator to help keep things cool, so don’t skimp on quality.

Rust is the number one enemy of radiators everywhere. You might ignore rust on the side of your car, but you can’t ignore the rust inside the radiator or outside of it. A classic sign you have interior radiator rust is when the car doesn’t seem to operate at the same temperature anymore, getting increasingly hotter until you start having trouble keeping it cool completely.

Another problem would be a broken thermostat, which is connected to how your radiator functions. If you don’t have a working thermostat, the radiator is getting bad instructions. Every component inside your car works together.

Have your radiator checked out at a garage before the symptoms get worse. And if you do have to order parts, the team at Advanced Radiators can help you out as well.

Truck Modifications Should Include Driveshaft Mods Too

You’ve got a truck. It looks great in the driveway, on the road, and in the office, where it virtually stomps all over your envious coworkers. But building your ultimate truck modification is a series of steps, and it all starts with knowing what you need and how to get it to your door. Not all parts can just be had by walking into an auto repair shop. For example, let’s take the prop shafts. Whether you call them propshafts or driveshafts or something else, you can’t go with an inferior product. We chatted with a few people from Driveshaft Solutions, a great place to get quality parts from people that know exactly what that amazing little component is going to do for us.

You see, the prop shaft is pretty important. It works in time with the transmission to get you from one place to another, and as you might imagine…it can take a beating over time. If you’re thinking about lifting your truck, you have to consider upgrading that stock propshaft as well.

propshafts

What we’re trying to do with a new and/or modified driveshaft is not only adjust the angle of the shaft, but decrease vibration. As you might imagine, vibration is very dangerous as you drive the truck around. Over time, heavy vibration leads to all of these delicate parts becoming worn and rubbing against each other, which leads to an increased risk of breakdown. The drive train is one of the most important components of not just a truck, but most 4×4 wheel drive vehicles in general.

Besides, you didn’t get a truck to play small. No, you want to hear that bad boy rev up, eager to prowl the streets for smaller prey. You didn’t lift the truck because you want to avoid attention, either. Getting quality parts from the beginning will help you in terms of improving performance and longevity.

We’re often asked whether you should go with a brand new propshaft or a used one. If you’re really trying to max out performance, a brand new component is best. On the other hand, if you’re trying to save money, a reconditioned driveshaft has been tested to ensure it’ll hold up. So if you’re in a hurry, getting the cheaper version might work, but you’ll eventually want to go with brand new sooner or later.

Cheer up a Friend with a List of Supercharged Cars

A good friend is there for you no matter what, and if you’ve got a friend that’s going through a series of rough times, why not show them a few fast cars? For most of us, we probably will never own any of these cars. But really, can YOU look at a Hennessey Venom GT Spyder and not crack a smile?

We didn’t think so.

But hey, the gorgeous graphics were dropped off by Drive Benfield, who doesn’t want your friend to have a bad day either. So enjoy the graphics, the stats, and the sense that if you sit with your friend a while, both of you are going to feel better in good time.

Oh, one last thing: if we had to choose, it would be the Porsche 918 Spyder, for sure. It’s not a car made for the whole family, but if you drive just right, well…women do find fast cars romantic.

How to Choose a Great RV

Do you dream of quitting your job and traveling around the country in style? An RV may be a great purchase for you, even if you only plan to use it to go on a few trips. Some people like the idea of spending half the year in a motorhome, while others like home a little too much for this. The “house on wheels” concept is appealing to a lot of people, and RVs enjoy a well loved position in the driving world.

There are a lot of options out there, and it would be silly to even try to recommend a specific model or even a specific type. But there are some questions that you need to think about before you plunk down the money for a motorhome.

buy RV

First and foremost, you need to figure out a budget. Even though you can’t pin down exactly what you want, you automatically know how much you’re willing to spend on the purchase. Just like shopping for a car, you know how much is “too much”, because you don’t have an unlimited supply of money. So before you even go into the showroom, you need to think about how much cash you want to spend. While it’s true that you can get a loan to purchase an RV, it’s better if you can find one that fits a cash price you had in mind. Why add another loan to pay every month?

Next, you want to look at different types of RV models. You have everything from fifth wheels that attach to a truck, to full scale motorhomes. Talking to multiple people that have owned different types of RVs is ideal when you’re trying to figure out which direction that you want to go.

On the fence about RVing for a long time? You may want to get an RV that is designed to last a few years of full time use, and then trade it in for a higher quality RV later.

Do you want something that will let you test out a full RV lifestyle? Going cheap is a great way to do that. If you find that this lifestyle isn’t for you, you’re not on the hook for a really pricey RV that isn’t going to suit your needs. Some people even get a pop up trailer just to see if they like the idea of camping to that extreme. Continue reading

Toyota Cooling Hose

The cooling hoses are necessary components in the car to supply the coolant. The coolant is used to prevent the engine from overheating. The coolants maintain the proper operating temperature the engine needs to work best.

A bad cooling system would lead to the breaking down of the engine due to overhearing. Reducing the risk of overheating the engine is a wise choice if you want your car to last longer and run better. One of the secrets of having a car that lasts longer is by reducing the components’ overwork effects. The water pump takes the responsibility of propelling the coolant into the engine.

The coolant goes through the cooling hose. Any leak or cut in the cooling hose might lead to a big damage of the engine. As the engine’s main priority is to keep a car running, the sole task of the cooling hose, together with the water pump, is to keep the engine in the best operating temperature. Toyota Cooling Hose Toyota cooling hoses are stabilized well to connect the components of the cooling system to prevent overheating. Connecting the parts firmly, the cooling hoses manufactured by Toyota guarantee safety above all else when dealing with your engine. Toyota offers many different additional supports for the cooling hoses they produce such as the use of a silicone hose. There are less heavy-duty engines that can control their emission rate well.

Producing high temperatures, heavy duty engines may need the use of a silicone cooling hose. This is one among many other characteristics that one can have for his or her cooling hoses. Some cooling hoses of Toyota also serve as vibration absorbers that take in the shock of motion without being damaged. There are some cooling hoses that can bend in multiple directions. There are also flexible heavy-duty ones that can be used to replace either bent or straight cooling hoses.
