According to experts, when renting a car, the client pays for the depreciation of the value of the vehicle, and not for the car itself .

Modern people are increasingly resorting to the use of car rental services. Experts told what you need to know when renting a car .

According to experts, when renting a car, the client pays for the depreciation of the cost of the vehicle, and not for the car itself. When renting a car at a price of $ 30,000, while its estimated value in three years will be $ 21,000, the depreciation amount is $ 9,000. If you divide this figure by the number of months in the lease, you get a monthly fee for renting a vehicle .

Experts recalled that the conditions for renting cars were not invented by the manufacturer, as is often said in advertising. Individual dealers themselves determine the cost of selling a car, which then applies to its rental. Therefore, do not refuse to discuss with the dealer the terms of the rental car. Also, do not forget to ask the seller for information on duties and conditions of the lease agreement in order to study it before signing the documents .

Experts told what threatens to ride on the “reserve”

In the spring, broken roads become unpredictable, and each pit threatens with a loss of tire integrity. A spare tire in our area is as necessary as a head on shoulders. But what will happen if you put one “dokatka” or “spare tire” with a summer tread on a set of winter tires?

Most modern cars come off the assembly line fully equipped with a full-fledged spare tire or a “dokatka”. By default, they are equipped with summer or all-weather tires. According to Nokian Tires tire experts, the consequences of riding such a wheel in the winter season can be sad.

Many drivers of modern cars are accustomed to relying on modern technologies that control the torque between the wheels in cars, but with poor quality road surface the system can easily fail. Lack of uniform grip on wheels threatens to lose control of the machine.

Rotational effect

If the spare wheel is mounted on the front wheel, during intensive braking, the car will begin to turn around the wheel with better grip. The process develops very quickly and leaves very little time for reaction, so even experienced drivers risk traveling far beyond their lane.

Skidding

If the spare wheel is mounted on the rear wheel, when braking and especially when cornering, the unloaded rear axle of the vehicle can skid. In the case of front-wheel drive cars, the skid is adjusted by aligning the steering wheel and adding gas, if the drive is rear, it will be much more difficult to catch the car.

Increased stopping distance

In the fight against the above effects, the driver will be helped by the ABS system and the stabilization of the car. However, their help will have a side effect – a significant lengthening of the braking distance of the car, especially if there is snow or ice under the wheels.

If, however, the driver of a front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive car has to use a summer spare wheel or a dokatka, it is better to put it on the rear axle – even if the front wheel bursts and this means twice as much work. Drive carefully, at a low speed, do not make sudden movements with the wheel and brake smoothly before turns. And as soon as it becomes possible to repair the tire or put a new one – do it immediately.

For a rear-wheel drive car, the use of a summer spare tire in winter conditions is generally not recommended: when installing in the front, there will be problems with stability on braking, when installing in the rear – with a drive during acceleration.

Ideally, regardless of the type of car drive, owners are strongly advised to take care of selecting tires for a spare tire for the season. Only in this way can you guarantee yourself that there are no problems with handling in difficult driving conditions on winter Ukrainian roads.

Experts have found: the smell of a new car is dangerous to health

Why do experts find used cars safer for health??

Each enthusiastic motorist will describe the smell of a new car as one of the most coveted and heady scents. After all, how pleasant it is to own a machine, the novelty of which can be felt immediately by all the senses! And how much upsets, when over time this smell begins to fade.

However, as it turned out, the smell of a new car can “intoxicate” not only figuratively. The thing is that one of the most desirable odors for most motorists is nothing more than a cocktail of fumes of a variety of plastics, adhesives, rubbers and synthetic fabrics, which are widely used in the interior of the car. Part of the materials used contains a horse dose of the so-called volatile organic compounds, which even in small quantities can cause health problems. And some of them, when ingested in a “sufficient” amount, can even cause death.

Do you think we are going too far? Not a fact … This conclusion was made by scientists at the Ecology Center of the US state of Michigan, who checked the content of harmful chemicals in car interiors for a rather long period.

According to Jeff Gearhart, director of research at the center, the interior of almost any new car is simply filled with a variety of toxins, including heavy metals, benzene and toluene. On average, more than two hundred chemical compounds can be found inside a machine! But the worst part is that, in contrast to the degree of toxicity of exhaust gases, the level of harmful chemicals inside the car in most countries is almost not regulated.

Depending on the toxicity of the chemicals inside the car, the first symptoms in the driver and passengers can range from mild dizziness and sore throat to nausea, and in some cases even an allergic reaction. The very reaction of the body very much depends on personal susceptibility: where one driver can spend hours without much discomfort, the other will feel the whole list of unpleasant symptoms of toxic poisoning.

Experts talked about five mistakes when changing and adding oil.

Experts listed common mistakes in working with lubricants.

Trouble-free operation of the motor requires the use of oil recommended by the company. Experts talked about the features of working with lubricants and talked about common mistakes..

You should immediately understand that you need to monitor the timeliness of replacing engine oil. Experts say that for passenger cars the interval is 10 – 20 thousand kilometers. It is also necessary to make corrections for many factors. If operation occurs with increased loads, it is better to replace the grease a little earlier.

It is worth remembering that oil overflow adversely affects the operation of the power unit. Due to overpressure, the seals and gaskets can suffer, which will cause a leak. It may also turn out that the candles are oily, and you can also lose throttle response or start to overspend fuel.

A lack of oil at a level below the “Minimum” on the dipstick can cause air plugs to block the oil ducts. A small amount of grease leads to dry work and leads to wear of moving parts. Check the oil level on a flat surface when the engine is cold..

Not the best idea would be to constantly add oil, not replace it. The old lubricant, mixed with the new one, gets contaminated pretty soon and loses its useful properties, and the additives become ineffective. These manipulations lead to scoring, carbon deposits and other problems with the power plant.

One of the most serious mistakes should be called lowering the quality of the oil when replacing. If you use mineral oil, it is possible to add semi-synthetics, and semi-synthetics, synthetics from the same manufacturer. However, you cannot do the opposite.

“Once, before the New Year”: experts are sure that the end of the year is the best time to buy a car

The issue of seasonality in purchases and sales of both new and used cars has always interested both sides of such a deal. Sellers always want to sell a car at an overpriced price, and buyers always want to buy a car that will last a long time and will be inexpensive. So, if we talk about the time of year, it is most profitable to purchase both a new and a supported car in winter. This conclusion agrees with most automotive experts in the market..

Many will immediately think about the New Year discounts that car dealers offer their customers. However, what discounts can used car dealers offer on New Year’s Eve? The thing is that on New Year’s the activity of buyers of used cars falls, as if people are hibernating for the new year, interest in buying cars decreases, as people think more about New Year’s gifts. Agree, not everyone can afford a new car for the new year.

On New Year’s Eve, you can bargain from the sellers for an additional discount or a set of winter tires and so on. In addition, as soon as the New Year celebration takes place, even a new car, even a supported car, will become a year older. And the year of manufacture is one of the main factors that immediately reduce the price of a car. The car is one year older. That is why not only dealers of new cars, but also owners of used cars try to manage to sell a car before the New Year.

Also, the weekend for buying a car is January – early February, when the majority of the population has little money left after the holidays, and they are not ready to buy a car. If you are not such a buyer and were waiting for this period in advance, then a huge offer of cars will be waiting for you, which in addition have already become a year older, so you can demand a lower price for them.
