From the company that produced the Hyundai Sonata comes another vehicle that has been predicted to make waves, which indeed it did. This vehicle is the Daewoo Leganza and it is a midsized sedan that was produced in South Korea. This vehicle lived from 1997 up until 2002 and later on, the Daewoo Magnus came to replace the "Daewoo Leganza" . During the time that this vehicle roared and soared on the streets and highways, it held the title as being the small car flagship of Daewoo. The company responsible for the Daewoo Leganza claims that its name is a mixture of two Italian words elegante which means elegant and forza which means power. In fact, this vehicle from Daewoo holds an exterior design and style that has been the product of the joint efforts of two parties. These parties are the companys in house stylists and the renowned ItalDesign operation of Guigiaro. If the Daewoo has come out to be an astounding and magnificent vehicle because of its exemplary design, then it would certainly not be much of a surprise after all ItalDesign is the very same party which is responsible for the design and style of other fine cars that includes the Lexus GS 300. The engine that the Daewoo Leganza held was a 2.2 liter engine with four inline cylinders and valves and this machine actually has the capacity and capability to produce some 131 units of horsepower. To provide a much better handling for the vehicle, installed in the vehicle is an electronically controlled four speed automatic transmission system. The vehicle actually measures 105.1 inches of wheelbase, 183.9 inches of length, a width of 70.0 inches, and a height of 56.6 inches. Its fuel economy is not so bad after all it can do 20 miles per gallon when driving in the city, and some 29 miles per gallon for highway driving. The Daewoo Leganza could be considered as a package in itself. After all, it has been accented and adorned with various features not only for safety and for performance, but for functionality and comfort as well. It has a door that has been crafted to eb good and solid. The cabin could be covered in fine leather if the owner chooses to, although it comes with the standard wood trim for a more earthly feel. Other features include four wheel disc anti lock brakes, a rack and pinion steering, air conditioning, power windows, locks, and mirrors, air bags, and a keyless entry system.
Well, not only are the voices and insights of teenagers when it comes to traffic safety important. Their voices and views are just about to be heard. They may be known as accident-prone drivers; however, not all teenagers are like this. Most of them are aware of how to be part of the whole traffic safety scheme. Starting this week, teenagers from the United States are invited to log on to www.SafetyScholars.com. And when they are at that, they can also submit essays on various driver safety issues. And if the organizers do like their view and their insights on traffic safety and driver safety, they would be getting a whopping $2,500 on college scholarships. Other prizes waiting teens with a good vision include new laptop computers, sets of Bridgestone Firestone tires, as well as $500 gas cards. This whole program was actually launched by the Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire, LLC along with the legendary racer Mario Andretti. The event happened during the start of the National Tire Safety Week. Together, Bridgestone and Andretti, has developed a comprehensive program which aims to educate young drivers on tire and driver safety. Andretti says, Car accidents are the leading killer of teens in this country. Teens are just learning to drive and face many distractions, so theyre at a very high risk for accidents. We want to help teens learn good, safe habits from the beginning. Our hope is our Safety Scholars program will help us find the best way to get all teens to hear this important message.To add to this, John Gamauf, the president of consumer tire replacement sales of Bridgestone, says, Tires are the only things connecting your vehicle to the road, so, as a tire company, Bridgestone Firestone strives to educate drivers on how essential tire safety is. Beyond that, we are parents and grandparents and community members who are deeply committed to keeping all drivers safe on the roads at all times. Were excited to be adding Safety Scholars to the array of driver safety and education programs and initiatives that our family of companies developed or sponsors, from Buckle Up Baby to Car Care Academies to Drivers Edge.

In the United States of America (US), it is very simple to get a pre-owned vehicle. People know that the finest place to buy or sell their cars is not through dealers or showrooms, but the General Services Administration (GSA). GSA is a federal agency that offers vehicles in auction. Individuals can also sell their own vehicle through auction. Government agencies such as IRS, DEA, FBI and the police departments acquire 1000s of cars each month through seized and foreclosure laws that are auctioned off to the general public. These cars are listed and sold at up to 95% off of their original values and sometimes, these auctions may start from $100 only. These cars are sold very quickly as their storage costs are very high. A large number of fresh or approximately new cars get forfeited or seized by the financial institutions everyday as thousands of people fail to pay their car mortgage or lease costs. These cars are also auctioned off in a hurry, because the rate of accumulating the cars compensates the banks' ability to get the lost money back (similar to the police auctions, etc.). As a result, for some fortunate people who have the access to straight sources, find themselves weighed down by very cheap car offers that look unbelievable to the average car buyer. This is real and is advantageous to many car dealers. In addition, US government also sells its own vehicles after a certain period of time due to either change in policies or due to financial concerns. At these times, the vehicles are written off the books by selling out to the general public. Government Vehicles may come from several different sources. Generally, a vehicle can only be sold at a government auction if it is purchased under a federal or state government contract. To appreciate the numbers of vehicles up for the suction in this way, one needs to think of the long list of the different departments and levels of government in the US. Some of the sources of these used vehicles include the Federal Government, State Government, Local Councils organizations, Police Services / departments (incl. Sheriffs/Marshalls Dept.), Fire & Emergency Services, Religious Groups & other Non-profit Organizations, Universities & other Education Organizations, as well as Hospitals & Ambulance Services. Thousands of repossessed and seized vehicles are also auctioned off at these auctions.By carrying out a simple hunt on your Internet, one can benefit from these great cars available in all kinds and price range. Car-Auction has a database full of thousands of different cars waiting for the bid. One can convert their dream car to reality by purchasing it from government & surplus auctions! Buying a car can be a difficult and stressful process but GAS makes it enjoyable and fun experience. However not everyone can buy cars in this manner as this source of revenue is protected for the majority of car dealerships and not journalized. The general masses might have to go through the dealer or a classified ads routine. However, several organizations have gathered enough information and access rights to be able to let their members enjoy a multitude of the direct sources, whereby one can find their next vehicle with up to 90% savings off the book value price.
