  • The Trade War With China Begins As Tesla Is Forced To Raise Prices
    12 Jul 2018

    Last Friday, the trade war between China and the US kicked off, as US President implemented a 25% tariff on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods. China has already retaliated with an increase in electric car tariffs from 15% to 40%. This means that cars that are imported into China will now be more expensive. According to The Wall Street Journal, Tesla had to raise its prices in China.  The Model X now costs $140,000, which is a significant increase over the old $117,100 price. The Model S now costs $128,400, an increase of about $21,000 compared to the old price. Elon Musk, Tesla CEO,...

  • Your Next New Car Could Cost An Extra $5,000
    11 Jul 2018

    Imagine walking into a dealership to buy a new car and discovering that your preferred vehicle suddenly costs up to $5,000 more than it did not long ago. This situation could happen if President Donald Trump succeeds in raising tariffs on imports. If he does and other countries respond to it, we’re looking at a potential 25 percent tariff which will result in increased vehicle prices regardless of automaker.  The average new vehicle sold in the US with various discounts factored in costs about $32,000. The 25 percent tariff will be passed down to the consumer resulting in a pri...

  • BMW May Slash US Factory Jobs Because Of Trump-Imposed Tariffs
    08 Jul 2018

    BMW has warned that it may be forced to reduce investment and slash its workforce at its Spartanburg, South Carolina, production facility if President Trump succeeds in imposing a 20 percent tariff on imported EU-built vehicles. This plant happens to be BMW’s largest in the world and ships more than 70 percent of its annual production output to other countries.  But how can US tariffs on imports affect Spartanburg? Because other countries, such as China, have threatened to retaliate against the US imposed tariffs on their goods with tariffs of their own. China being one of Spar...

  • Ford Faces $1.3 Billion Lawsuit Over Defective EcoBoost Engines
    06 Jul 2018

     Ford is very proud of its smallest engine, the 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost. And it decided to bring it stateside in the Fiesta while offering it as the base engine in the EcoSport. Despite its size, it makes respectable power: 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque.  Unfortunately, the engineering brilliance of this little mill has been greatly overshadowed by life-threatening issues. In fact, Ford may be facing a class-action lawsuit over this engine. The lawsuit stems from Louise O’Riordan, who purchased a Ford Focus with the 1.0-liter EcoBoost back in 2014. Even ...
