6 Accessories Your New Car Should Have

Buying a new car is an experience that few will ever forget: the smell, the pristine interior, and the flawless ride are some of the things enjoyed by new car owners. Yet, despite how well equipped even the most expensive cars can be, oftentimes they leave the showroom with several accessories missing. No, they weren't stolen; instead, for some queer reason these 'must have' accessories were not included with the sale. Let's take a look at six accessories every vehicle should have. Floor mats - You have got to be kidding - no floor mats?! Oddly, floor mats are the chief accessory typically not included with any sale. Instead, you get a throwaway paper sheet for the driver. Without floor mats in place you can bet that the interior will be soiled in short order. Worse, if you wait too long your carpeting could be damaged which is especially bad news for you if you lease your vehicle. Just wait until you see the price of replacing damaged automotive carpeting! Cargo liners - Like the interior, the car's trunk...

 


Is Your Radar Detector Legal?

A good number of the people with cars in the United States have their own radar detectors. Indeed, a good radar detector can be your best friend keeping you safe from cops out on the prowl. Once the radar detector alarm sounds, you can ease up on the gas, and no one is the wiser. But, the police are savvy to your secret. They've taken to clever ways of hiding from them, in alleyways or behind bridges in order to avoid being detected by the radar detectors. Motorists on the other hand are being clever themselves, they are aware of these techniques from the police, so more enhanced, top-dollar detectors have entered the market. Though the authorities are always improving their chances of catching the radar detector users, they are unable to make the streets of the United States radar detector-free. Radar detectors are legal in many cities and states in the United States. But this does not mean that radar detector units are legal in all of the states in the US. Here are some of the states that deem ...

 


The Basics of Car Alarms

In the United States alone, a car is either stolen or broken into every 20 seconds. It is therefore not surprising that car alarm system manufacturers are constantly finding ways to improve the theft deterrence abilities of their products. But while it's amazing how car alarm systems have evolved form their simplest beginnings, it's even more amazing how car thieves still manage to get around them. Are car alarm systems really too simple to provide any protection? Basic car alarm systems work by using simple circuitry technology - if someone forces the car door open, the circuit is closed and a siren sounds off. More sophisticated car alarms have added more sensors to capture every possible threat by being more sensitive to light vibrations or pressures. Shock sensors cause the alarm to go off when someone or something hits or moves the vehicle. The alarm will go off in patterns dependent on how strong the shock is - the sounds go anywhere from a short beeping sound to a very loud, nonstop alarm. Because s...

 


Prepare Your Emergency Road Kit

Emergencies on the road are inevitable. If you drive at all, at some point in time you will be faced with a roadside emergency. A flat tire, a broken fan belt, a leaking radiator, or a dead battery are just a few of the common occurrences we can expect when we travel. No one can predict when they'll have an emergency along the road. The best we can do is to be prepared at all times. Having a minor emergency, such as a flat tire in the middle of the day when you have a cell phone handy and a friendly neighborhood mechanic on the way, is one thing. Having a major emergency, such as the same flat tire in the middle of the night in a blizzard with no cell phone service, well, that's the sort of emergency we want to be prepared for. Even if you're not a mechanic, there are certain things that you can use to help yourself during a roadside emergency. When preparing for a roadside emergency, you want to think of two emergency kits; a car kit and a personal kit. Your Car Kit should include: • Work gl...
