Why your next car should come with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay

I remember the first time I tried Android Auto – it was back in 2016 with the debut of the all-new tenth-generation Honda Civic.

In case you’re wondering, Android Auto is strictly lim

How to add RM 10k to your car's resale value

Image creditSo, youve just taken delivery of your brand-new car. Youre excited (understandably so), and have already made plans on how to spruce it up and make it your own.

Stop tailgating me, please

I remember making my way back to Kuala Lumpur from Johor Bahru via the North-South Expressway in a Mercedes-AMG GLA 45. Traffic was fairly busy that day and I was maintaining a safe distance with the car in front while swooping past the slower cars in the middle lane.Out of a sudden, a first-generation Toyota Vios merged into the fast lane and came dangerously close to the rear of the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45. Now, before you accuse me of hogging the fast lane, I am moving with the flow of

Should you clean your engine bay?

Getting your car cleaned is very satisfying. Most of us just pay to get them cleaned while some of us prefer to do the job ourselves. Either way, the shiny exterior and spotless interior never fail to make our cars feel fresh. It’s the similar feeling you get after getting a haircut.One area that rarely gets attention at a car wash is the engine bay. Most of us never pop the hood unless our car breaks down or we need to fill up the wiper fluid. If left attended for a long time, the engine

FAQ: Is auto start-stop bad for your car?

Auto Start-Stop is a feature most of us despise. Cars like the Perodua Myvi and Perodua Bezza have this feature. With its jerky starts, a simple manoeuvre like the three-point-turn feels clumsy and unfamiliar. And with a belt-driven compressor, cool air stops blowing when the feature kicks in. The simple solution for most of us then, is to just turn it off.While some people would rather have sweaty pits to save the environment, the majority couldn’t be arsed to have the engi
