Transmissions transfer power from the engine to the wheels, propelling the car. Without a working transmission, your vehicle won't go anywhere. If you notice any of the below problems while driving, you might have a possible transmission problem.
1. Slipping - feels like you're driving in a certain gear and then it changes for no apparent reason. 2. Rough shifting - could be incorrect fluid levels, transmission leaks or clogged filters. 3. Delayed engagement - could be a sign of low fluid levels or something more serious.
Many vehicles now have transmission warning lights that are triggered when the transmission fluid is too hot or leaking, which could help you identify the issue. If your vehicle's transmission fluid levels are full and not overheating, chances are the transmission has a bad...
For those searching for a luxury crossover SUV, the SRX ushers in a new wave of luxury class. It's an SUV that manages to balance style, performance, space and safety all in one package.
The SRX is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that offers up 308 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. It's an engine that produces more than enough power to tackle all types of conditions and delivers an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in city and 23 mpg on the highway.

Finally, a luxury crossover SUV that looks and feels different. The XT5 is a two-row, mid-size crossover with similar exterior dimensions as the SRX but 300 pounds lighter. The loss in weight doesn't mean you're losing body strength either. A blend of high-grade steel maximizes stiffness and collision strength.
It features adaptable interior seating, hands-free liftgate, advanced safety systems - side blind zone alert, pedestrian collision mitigation - the Cadillac CUE system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and Active Fuel Management with Automatic Stop/Start technology.
Forget the fancy tech for a second, though. This SUV does more than just make your life on the road safer and easier - it also has an engine that performs. The 3.6 L V-6 Engine with 8-Speed Automatic Tra...
Buying a car doesn't have to be difficult. It can take a little bit of time, but it doesn't have to be difficult if you follow our below tips to making car shopping simple.
#1 Think about your life needs.
This step is all about defining what type of vehicle will best fit your life and what type of vehicle you like the most. Think about vehicle usage, garage space, parking and so on.

Getting good at driving is something that comes with practice. Operating a car isn't difficult. Driving on the road is a different story though. There are multiple things going on at once and our brains aren't the best multitaskers. With practice, drivers develop a rhythm. That rhythm can become a good habit or a series of bad habits. It all comes down to practice. So for the month of April, Luke Fruia Motors would like to remind everyone to drive safe and instill good driving habits in their teens with a few safety tips.
1. Attend A Safe Driving Course - The best thing for a teen driver is to get plenty of practice and a safe driving course is the way to do it. Safe driving courses consist of hours of practice and it's that practice that develops good driving habits.
Trucks are made to haul cargo and help you get everything you need from point A to point B. Trucks come with those large beds for a reason, after all. Take the Silverado for example. Depending on the model you've got, you'll get anywhere from 53 to 76 feet of cubic space in the bed alone.
But sometimes, even if you've got the space, it's not always easy to keep that truck space organized. Items shift around while driving, new stuff gets piled onto old stuff and soon you're having trouble finding what you're looking for. But there are some ways to organize your space to suite your needs and stay organized so you find what you're looking for faster -- in the bed and inside the cab too.
