The Veloster has gone through a complete redesign for the 2019 model year.

Donald Trump

Whether or not you follow the news, there's been one thing that has been impossible to miss in the world. President Donald Trump and his international diplomacy. One of the latest things to come up in Trump's policies is his stance on car imports into America.

To summarize, Donald Trump is considering imposing duties of 25% on automotive imports. Trump believes that the world has been "taking advantage of the United States" when it comes to trade deals, and he wants the world to know it's stopping now.

Car Body Styles

cars

When shopping for cars nowadays, it seems like you have a kajillion options. There are different trims, add-ons, colours and body styles available so there is so much customization available that everyone in your family could have a different vehicle. But the biggest thing that most people talk about with different cars is the body style. There are so many body styles out there now that it can be hard to distinguish between them just based on the name (Except for the hatchback...that one is easy to figure out.)

Selling Your Used Car

Selling Your Car

There comes a point in every love affair where the "honeymoon phase" ends. Things become boring and stale, the things that used to excite you no longer give you that same buzz, and sometimes, some people start looking elsewhere for something that will give them that feeling again.

Marketing's First Cars

2018 Honda Civic Sedan LX

About a month ago, I gave the marketing team of Weins Canada a job. Think of a dream car. Doesn't matter how expensive it was, how rare it was or how absurd it was, tell me about your dream car. They delivered in spades, talking about everything from plausible (Buick Grand National) to completely out there (Lykan Hypersport). Sufficed to say, it was a fun article to write.

For this follow-up, I was a bit less fun.

Driving On The Highway

Highway Driving

Spring is weird in Canada, especially down here in the GTA. It basically doesn't exist. I consider spring in the GTA just a very slow transition from winter into summer (How can we have an ice storm one weekend and then have it 15 degrees the next weekend? It makes no sense!).

Sharing The Road With Cyclists

Bikers on the road

Ahhh, spring. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and the bikers are back on the road.

Now I know what you're thinking, I heard the groan from here. But bikers have as much right to be on the road as drivers do. The difference is that when bikers are on the road, they're more at risk for bodily harm than a driver will be. A helmet (for those that even wear them) will not protect a biker from getting t-boned by an SUV.

Driving In Warm Weather

Spring Weather

Despite recent weather, we are now well into Spring. In fact, next week in Markham, the temperature is supposed to go up to the mid-teens! I'd say that qualifies for Spring.

While warmer weather doesn't have as many dangers as cold weather does, warm weather should still change some of your driving habits. Here are some things that you should think about as the temperature rises (Yes, I promise the temperature will rise).
