Scored a used child car seat? Have you checked the expiry date?

With the Road and Transport Department (JPJ) waiting for the official green light to start issuing fines for not using a child car seat, many parents are rushing to purchase a seat to avoid needing to pay the expensive fine.

Goldmine: A rally car you can daily - 1999 Subaru Impreza GC up for sale!

Once in a while, something really hot pops up in the used car markets that we just can't ignore. Partly because we are petrolheads, and partly because we like to live vicariously and look at pictures of cars we cannot afford yet. This is one such example - a 1999 Subaru Impreza (GC) sedan that looks like it just drove off a Subaru dealership a couple of hours ago. It’s obvious that it’s been lovingly restored (read: thousands of Ringgit poured into it), so let’s see what you will get for the ask

How many PSI / kPa do I have to pump into my tyres?

Checking our tyre pressure is an integral part of owning a car. But sadly not many car owners perform this check as often as they are supposed to. As my colleague, Eric, has highlighted, your tyre pressure easily affects your car's handling, ride and comfort and even your fuel consumption! So now you know the benefits of checking on your tyres constantly and keeping them well filled, but do you know how much air pressure to pump into your tyres? And where do you find the guide of the air pressur

This 2020 Proton X50 is the absolute buzz-ness

Malaysians love to modify their cars. If you think you’re a person with petrol pumped in your veins, chances are you would want to tweak your ride to your liking as well. The Proton X50 might have been launched barely a week ago but Malaysia’s hyped up B-segment crossover isn’t immune to the modified ‘kakis’. This particular X50 is one of the first units delivered and the owner literally decided to spruce it up immediately after it rolled off the showroom floor. These images are provided from th

Driving your car less this MCO? Here's how to keep it running smoothly.

Just like that, we are 2 weeks into MCO 2.0. This most likely means that most of us are working from home, which then means our cars aren't driven much.

Cheapskate aunties climb on Mercedes-Benz GLC to steal mangoes

SUVs have a higher ride height so the car can easily go off-roading in a passenger car. But these three aunties made good use of the Mercedes-Benz GLC’s ride height to steal mangoes from a tree outside a residence instead. CCTV footages of the three cheapskate aunties getting out of a GLC to steal mangoes have been going viral.

Should you buy engine oils from hypermarkets?

One of the very prevalent questions I get all the time on car maintenance, is about engine oils. This isn't surprising, seeing that it is the one thing we cannot avoid changing after a fixed interval. Often times you'll see hypermarkets selling brands like Shell, Castrol or other branded engine oils for a far cheaper price than it usually retails. Engine oils sold at hypermarts are cheaper, but its authenticity is hard to verify. If it's the real deal, you save some money. If it's not, you will
