Many of us prefer the cost advantage of buying a pre-owned car from a trusted dealer. It is a delicate balance between the price saving and age/mileage of the vehicle. Top dealers today stake their reputation on offering only the cleanest used cars, so you will know that the car you get has never been in an accident and anything not working properly has been fixed.
Solar panels have been available on production models of some plug-in hybrid cars since 2010 but how effective are they really? It’s not a new concept by any stretch of the imagination as the 2015 Toyota Prius and 2012 Fisker Karma had solar panels. More recent attempts include the Tesla Cybertruck and the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. In theory, solar panels on cars should generate enough free energy from the sun to power the engine and internal equipment. However, if all the math makes sense in terms of total vehicle weight and available solar power, why aren’t all vehicle manufacturers doing it? The answer comes partly from looking at the new Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited model, which comes with a solar panel roof.
Most drivers will inevitably experience damage from potholes which can be expensive and inconvenient.

However, we’ve compiled a simple guide with handy tips that should help you avoid potholes and protect your vehicle from damage.
In the Karate Kid, Mr Myagi gets Danny to wax his collection of old cars. Wax on, wax off. Was he teaching Danny basic karate moves, or was he tricking the boy to wax his cars? Danny won at the end of the movie, so it was probably the teaching thing. But what is the deal with waxing your car? Try a quick experiment. Take a pic of your best pair of leather shoes. Shine one with that stuff in the tube with the foam rubber tip. Shine the other the old fashioned way, with Nugget or Kiwi and a brush and a cloth. Now take another pic. Which shoe looks best? You know the answer, but please do this anyway.
