  • For athletes, the cold is often a powerful ally in treating injures, with RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) a popular means of treating muscle pulls, bruising and other common forms of discomfort. Did you know, though, that frosty temps are also popular tools for simply recovering from a rough training session? Well, we're guessing Jaguar Land Rover knew that, as the British company was kind enough to loan out its climactic testing chamber to Jaco van Gass and Luke Darlington, a pair...

  • SAAR, in case you're not aware, stands for Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate, and what it basically refers to, in this case, is the total number of automobiles experts predict automakers will sell in the United States in the 2014 calendar year. The big news is that the SAAR has been adjusted upward again, reaching the 17-million-unit level for the first time since July of 2006. Put more plainly, Americans are buying lots of cars these days, and that's why you're seeing quite a bit of green and...

  • General Motors issued a recall for more than a half million Chevrolet Camaros on Friday morning because of an ignition-switch safety hazard that mirrors the one at the center of the company's current crisis. The problem affects Camaro models from the 2010 to 2014 model years. Approximately 464,712 cars are impacted in the United States, and 511,528 overall in North America. GM will alter the Camaro key to a more standard design, and will notify car owners with a recall notice in the mail. In...

  • Automakers trademark names all the time, whether they want to protect some part of their past or if they are considering a model even far in the future. But occasionally a trademark pops up that is much more enticing than the rest. For example, General Motors recently reserved the name Zora for "motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles," according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The name Zora in association with GM immediately calls to mind the Corvette. Zora Arkus-Duntov is...

  • GM announced 13 separate recalls in May, but that was a mere footnote for consumers. At least in theory, the past four months should have been trying ones for General Motors. The company admitted it knew key details about a deadly defect in its cars for more than a decade, and that flaw was responsible for killing at least 13 motorists and probably more. In the ensuing fallout, the company has issued more than two dozen recalls that affect 15.8...

  • Demand for automobiles remains high, judging by the latest round of sales reports filtering in from automakers doing business in the United States. Even those heavily embroiled in recall controversies, most notably General Motors, witnessed year-over-year improvements in the month of May. GM, specifically, saw sales rise nearly 13 percent last month - notching its best month since August of 2008 in the process - led by strong demand for bread-and-butter core models from Chevrolet like the Cruze...

  • The General Motors recall scandal might be hopping borders in the near future. The Canadian government's Transport Minister, Lisa Raitt, is pushing for an investigation into when GM Canada knew about the ignition switch problem and the necessary recall. "Having seen what has developed in the United States I've gone back to my officials to go back to GM Canada and ask them when did they find out. Did they find out at the same time as GM in the U.S. told the world or did they know earlier than...
