  • May U.S. auto sales projected to rise slightly
    26 May 2017

    U.S. new-vehicle sales are expected to rise very slightly in May from a year ago, narrowly snapping the industry's streak of four consecutive monthly declines. Analysts expect 2017 sales of 17.2 million, 2 percent fewer than the record 17.55 million sold last year. The annualized selling rate is projected to be less than 17 million for a third consecutive month, more evidence that the market has passed its peak. That would mean the industry will already have had as many sub-17 million months in 2017 as it did in each of the past two full years.  Other forecasts project sales-volu...

  • Americans trust tech companies more than automakers on self-driving cars
    24 May 2017

    In a study surveying drivers in the US, UK, Germany, France, and Italy, transportation data company INRIX finds that attitudes about autonomous vehicles (AVs) differ quite a bit depending on what side of the Atlantic one lives on, as well as by age. The survey gathers responses about safety, privacy, and trust and confidence in the connected and autonomous vehicle market, as well as their likelihood to purchase a self-driving car.   When it comes to safety, 71 percent of US drivers expect autonomous cars, compared to 85 percent of Italians, to be as safe or safer than today's veh...

  • Toyota to recall 228,000 Tacomas in U.S.
    28 Apr 2017

    Toyota Motor North America is recalling about 228,000 2016 and 2017 Toyota Tacoma midsize pickups in the U.S. because their rear differentials may leak oil. Differentials leaking oil could become damaged and stop working, causing a loss of vehicle control, Toyota said in a statement Thursday. Damaged rear differentials also create noise and reduce propulsion if the vehicle is driven without being repaired.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recalls page includes a complaint a driver from Honolulu who said on Dec. 18, 2015, that the differential on the his or her 2016...

  • Trumpchi car brand faces name change before reaching the US market
    21 Apr 2017

    Guangzhou Automotive Group is considering renaming its Trumpchi brand before it starts to sell cars in America in 2019. The reason is obvious, as the brand name GAC Motor has chosen doesn't necessarily sit well with all prospective customers.   The reasoning behind the Trumpchi name has to do with the romanization of a Chinese brand name GAC Motor had begun using, "Chuanqi". That name, loosely translated, means "legendary" in Chinese, and it's something the automaker wanted to convey in a more easily pronounced way, choosing "trump" for, well, tr...

  • Nissan Rogue is the king of nonpickup sales in America
    10 Apr 2017

    Starting with October 2016, the SUV segment started to account for roughly one in every three vehicles sold. The Nissan Rogue is driving the sales, and became the top-selling nonpickup in America. Sales of crossovers since 2012 have increased 58 percent to more than 5.6 million sold in 2016, while car sales during that time declined 7.8 percent.  Crossovers accounted for 33.9 percent, or 1.4 million, of the 4 million vehicles sold in the first quarter of 2017. The growth of crossovers comes as car sales face double-digit declines this year and the industry experienced a 1.6-percent f...
