Photo: Some rights reserved by Kevin Krejci Automakers are used to hearing that Generation Y consumers are more interested in connectivity in their vehicles than anything else. But a new study by GfK and the Consumer Electronics Association provides evidence that Millennials also are poised to become early adopters of a whole range of other types of new technology in cars — and that they may even be willing to pay for it if they can. Among other things, the study results suggest that car companies could benefit by pressing more new technology into less-expensive cars from the git-go, … Continue reading

Pep Boys joins VR-12′s cause

Pep Boys joins VR-12′s cause

Our goal is very simple: showing car owners everywhere that their current cooling system maintenance practices no longer have to be contaminating for the environment, and that all this doesn’t hinder their vehicle’s performance in any way or costs them any more money.

Pep Boys has realized this, and they also want you to join us! Find the green … Continue reading

But most of us also know some things about engine oil that aren’t actually true. For instance, isn’t it always necessary to change your oil every 3,000 miles (4,828 kilometers)? And when the color of your … Continue reading
