The CEO who killed the Ford Focus, Fiesta and Mondeo is stepping down, replaced by ex-Toyota man

Jim Hackett announced today that he is stepping down as CEO of Ford Motor Company, barely three years on the job. Formerly a CEO at office furniture manufacturer Steelcase, he succeeded ex-Mazda man Mark Fields at Ford. Hackett’s tenure at Ford was rocky. He had no experience with the automotive business but Executive Chairman Bill Ford was eager to have someone outside the company to transform the highly-traditional Ford. The results weren’t good, which probably explains his earlier-than-expect

Maintenance cost comparison: Proton X50, Honda City, Mitsubishi Xpander - Which car is the cheapest?

Before we get started, let’s dive into the figures first. Capping the period to 5 years/100,000 km, the Honda City costs RM 3,669 to maintain, while the Proton X50 costs RM 4,326 and the Mitsubishi Xpander costs RM 4,215. But before we go further, there is a reason why we are comparing an SUV, a sedan, and an MPV. The simple reason is because like all crossovers/SUVs these days, the X50 and Xpander are aimed at sedan/hatchback owners looking for an upgrade. There's no real reason why anyone need

Tiny turbo engines: good or bad?

Engines are getting smaller and smaller by the day thanks to the help of an invention that dates all the way back to 1905 – the turbocharger. First used in aeroplanes with radial engines, the turbocharger was then used in big multi-cylinder diesel engines and finally found its way into production cars in the 1960s. In Malaysia, turbochargers are a great way to have more power while avoiding the more expensive road tax for large capacity engines. We are about to see more small turbocharged engine
