Comments Off on Federal Agents Will Be Testing Driverless Cars Soon

A series of news reports show that federal agents are looking into how safe self-driving vehicles would actually be before the feature is made entirely available to drivers across the country.

According to some media outlets, the government’s safety official reported that autonomous vehicles have a major potential to be a great tool in making roads safer across the nation. Now, the government has started to look into launching a research that will determine whether driverless vehicles are safe and reliable to be commercialized.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is carrying out this research, reports show. The agency believes that automakers and Google should work together to perfect the technology and develop vehicles with systems that will make the life of the driver much easier without compromising safety. Consumer safety should be a major priority of automakers and engineers must test this technology extensively before federal agents are able to allow the autonomous vehicle device into the lives of Americans.

Hopefully, more safety technology will be developed in the near future to make our roads much safer and keep our motorists out of harm’s way.

Comments Off on Best 2012 “Left-Over” Car List Revealed

Consumers who are looking into purchasing a new and somewhat inexpensive vehicle could find the model they are looking for in a recent “Best New-Car Leftovers” list compiled by some experts and published by specialized auto-related websites.

According to these specialists, savvy car shoppers should keep in mind that they are always able to find great deals toward the end of the year due to the fact that dealerships hope to clear their stock to make room for newer models. According to reports, some vehicles can be purchased for much less than expected because some are being redesigned or even dropped for the next year, which leads to a drop in the overall price of these cars.

Specialists compiled the information for this list by focusing on the best left-overs of the year of 2012, which also carry great incentives to make deals even more appealing. According to the news, the top ten vehicles for consumers who are looking into purchasing a new car for a great deal include the 2012 Chevrolet Impala and Malibu. Experts say that, not only these Chevy models are great deals because both models are reliable, they are great deals also because the 2012 versions did not go under any significant redesign, which may occur with the 2013 models.

Dealers want these vehicles to be sold out fast before the newly redesigned models are available, which is not a problem if consumers consider the fact that both models got excellent reviews in the past.

Budget-minded shoppers may also enjoy the deals they can find by looking into the 2012 Ford Fusion and Mustang models. Specialists believe that the healthy incentives Ford dealerships are attaching to both models could make them great candidates for drivers who enjoy horse power.

Consumers with a love for smaller vehicles may enjoy the deals Honda is offering on all 2012 Accords. Lexus and Nissan loyal drivers may also get a break purchasing the 2012 versions of the Es 350 and Altima.

The 2012 Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota Avalon, GMC Acadia, Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Escape and Hyundai Santa Fe have also been placed in this listing. Shoppers with the most varied tastes will be able to find a 2012 vehicle that fits their needs and does not hurt the wallet.
