Toyota Tacoma Shows Engineering Prowess and Versatility

The new Tacoma pickup truck line was introduced for 2005. The Tacoma line offers the 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains, plus the popular PreRunner models that combine the 4x2 drivetrain with the raised riding stance and styling of the 4x4 models. This new line will make the consumer happy as it gives him/her more choices.

A few weeks ago, I test-drove this truck. It was such a delight to drive around. It is more responsive, more powerful and fuel-efficient. It's lower to the ground, which is good for women. As far as buying a truck, more and more women are going for the Tacoma.

What do I like about this truck?

The truck comes equipped with bold headlights and a grill, flush rear surface glass and structures. In one word, it has a higher quality appearance. You can find a more spacious interior which is facilitated in the Access Cab and Double Cab models by having the tumble-flat rear seats with underseat storage behind the rear seatback. The front passenger seat can fold flat to show a tray table. On all models, you will find dual bottle holders in driver's and passenger's side doors.

The Car of the future Uses No Gasoline; It's a TotalFlex Car with Volkswagen Motor

The car of the future is already here. It can be found in Brasil, South America. Forced by high prices of gasoline on the world market, Brasil has been experimenting with the use of sugarcane-based ethanol to fuel their vehicles.

If you are in Sao Paolo or Ipanema beach and see a drunk car coming at you, then you will know what it is made of. Brasil is trying to be independent. It's trying something that should be a model for all under-developed and developing countries. It's been trying to stay away from gasoline which is considered a finite product. It's been forced to fight the high costs of oil market controlled mostly by the oil-producing countries. OPEC must heed this lesson. So do the various American and Japanese automotive manufacturers. Cars must meet local and regional needs for renewable resources. Sugar cane is plentiful in Brasil. The government has done a good job of giving subsidies to the farmers to increase production. The farmers can transform the cane into ethanol which can be purchased at fuel stations all over the country.

American and Japanese auto makers such as GMC, Lexus, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, BMW, Mercedes and Peugeot must try to do like Volkswagen. In fact Volkswagen already sold the first TotalFlex Golf vehicle in 2003 in Brasil. Traditional gasoline model cars are taking a back seat in Brasil. Flex cars which can take either ethanol or gasoline are in high demand. Brasilian automakers can't just keep up with the demand. According to NPR and Christian Science Monitor reports, Brasil is one of the fore-runners of this type of conversion technology. Non-oil-producing countries will soon resort to developing their production of cane, beet, carrot, wheat and corn into fuels that can power vehicles. The US congress has already taken a look at this. All throughout the country, many school districts use some type of alternative fuels to power their school buses.

Flex cars save money. They are attractive to buyers who are trapped in high unemployment economies. Brasil will be able to export this technology as many countries are interested in cutting their dependence on gasoline.

What will happen to all these cars damaged by the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina?

Gas Prices: Consumers are worried about Price Gouging; Authorities Are Monitoring

Subdued Labor day spending

Consumers worried about the potential increase of gas prices after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast oil stations did not want to venture far from their homes. They stayed home or close to their community. Many of them did not want to be seen as callous when many of their fellow men and women were going through hell in other parts of the country. This is not good news for the automotive industry. Coming from a good campaign which sold many 2005 models, they are now grappling with recalls. Especially in the case of Ford that had to recall some of its bestselling models due to engine fires, many observers are saying that the slowdown and recent natural events will hit the company's bottom line.

Even Toyota has also seen the slowdown. Its shares fell 7 cents to close at $83.78 on the NYSE.

Ford & Toyota Recalls: F-150 Trucks, Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator & Ford Bronco Are Recalled

Ford Recalls

Ford recalled 3.8 million pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles. They are 1994-2002 model-year vehicles. NHTSA said that it has received 550 complaints about engine fires from the cruise control. So far, there have been allegations of three deaths stemming from these complaints.

Toyota Recalls:

Toyota is also recalling the 1990-1995 4Runner SUV, 1989-1995 truck 4WD and 1993-1998 T-100 pickup.

Gas Prices Cause Consumers to Spend Less on Transportation

As gas prices are going up all over the country, American consumers are spending less on other things and household items. They want to be able to afford to take the kids to school, go to work and eat something. They know that most of their incomes will go to fuel. With the recent devastation caused by the recent hurricane and flooding in the gulf states disabling many oil platforms, we,consumate consumers of energy, should expect to pay more for gas. The government is trying to help us out by tapping into the strategic oil supply. The President will allow the temporary use of some of the supply.

It does not take a scientist to figure out that the remaining months of Summer and the beginning of the Winter season may bring bad omen. Heating oil is going to be costly unless the major oil-producing countries including Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria can up the productiong. Already, the house of Saud and president Hugo Chavez have said that their countries want to provide oil to help the US.

It goes without saying that the money that could towards new cars will be gone. Having said so, the auto industry should expect to discount more. That also means that they may not make much money doing so. The volume of their cars will go down but so will the profits. People are staying away from dealerships. They are afraid of sharks lurking in these dealerships who are waiting to exploit them. When GMC runs their campaign, many unsuspecting buyers got ripped off. The Employee Discount helped bring consumers into the dealership, but the finance guys resort to the same old tactics by adding so much on top of the price which balloons to exceed what was advertised. I am going to get $4000 from Kitahara GMC, Pontiac dealership. Even though I explicitly told the finance guy that I was going to refinance, he threw some of the services which brought my fees up. He'll have to repay. At least, his maneuvers are being revealed.

Very few consumers will be able to afford to buy new cars. The 2006 models are expected to do poorly in the various dealership lots. SUVs are expected to do even worse. People know them as gas guzzlers. They are staying away from them. Considering that the auto industry has bet on them for the past few years, it's going to plunge them into more debts. Unless gas prices go down, these companies should expect some tough months.
