Mandatory Winter Tire Use Starts on 1 December

Petlas points out that the legal requirement for the use of winter tires for commercial vehicles will begin on December 1. For safe driving in winter, winter tires should be used at temperatures below +7 degrees, but unfortunately, snowfall is expected in our country. With the winter season, it's time to take measures for safe travels. One of the measures is the use of winter tires. Drivers should pay maximum attention to this issue these days, when announcements are made that the cold air wave will spread and snowfall will increase in all regions. The legal process for the use of winter tires begins on 1 December. Although it changes with the decision of the governorship on a provincial basis, it is obligatory to install winter tires on all commercial vehicles between 1 December and 1 April. Commercial vehicle owners are required to drive with equipment in accordance with the circular issued by the ministry. Otherwise, they will have to pay a traffic fine of 519 TL. In fact, winter tires should be used for safe driving, not as a legal requirement. Do not wait for the day when the legal process will start to buy winter tires…


International Pick-up Award for New Nissan Navara

The new Navara, which started production at Nissan's Barcelona Factory in November, won the "2016 International Best Pick-Up Award" (International Pick-up Award 2016) at the ceremony held in Lyon, France. The new Navara, the renewed pick-up model that Nissan introduced in Europe in November, was selected as the best pick-up of the year by the 'International Pick-up Award Jury'. In the evaluation, Navara's interior and exterior design, new technologies, 2.3 lt dCi engine, loading and towing capacities were among the prominent features. While the completely renewed Navara successfully passed the tough test conditions of the International Pick-up Organization, it was evaluated by considering its off-road capability, driving performance on asphalt and price-benefit ratio. Retaining the off-road capability, durability and carrying capacity of the first generation of Navara, the new Navara draws attention with its comfort and driving characteristics inspired by crossovers. The vehicle also differentiates itself with innovations such as a five-link rear suspension system in the double cabin version and a 67 mm longer load section compared to the previous generation.


Volvo Cars Restores Time With Concept 26 Offering Autonomous Driving Pleasure

Taking into account the preferences of its users in autonomous driving research, Volvo Cars provides the user with the Concept 26, which it has created in line with these preferences; it gives back the time lost on the road by transferring the driving to the car. Research by Volvo Cars on autonomous driving reaffirms that the daily commute takes away the joy of driving a car. People want to delegate the driving of their cars to autonomous driving, mostly for commuting and long-distance highway journeys. With this in mind, Volvo Cars developed the Concept 26. Concept 26 is named after the world average; it takes people's average daily commute time of 26 minutes, a 26 minutes that can be used more meaningfully than stop and go in traffic. Volvo Cars is giving the driver back freedom by giving the driver the opportunity to enjoy the ride whenever he wants and to delegate the driving of the car whenever he wants. Drive, create, relax Robin Page, Vice President, Interior Design, Volvo Cars, said: "It's all a matter of personal preference. Our research shows that some people use that free time creatively when they turn their cars over to fully autonomous driving to and from work, while others do not. he prefers to spend this time just sitting back and relaxing, watching music or videos. Autonomous driving makes it all possible. That's how Concept 26 redesigns the entire car experience" Concept 26, "Drive-Drive", "Create-Creativity" It is based on an entirely new, patented seat design that grips the driver during the change phase before entering one of the "Relax" and "Relax" modes. With these three new modes, the concept creates a new autonomous driving platform that can adapt to new needs and technologies that may occur over time. When the driver wants to transfer the driving to the car, the steering wheel is pulled in, the seat reclines and a large screen appears on the front console, allowing the driver to use the time he or she will spend in the car as they wish. Concept 26 meets the need for a radical change in the basic interior design of the car, while giving the driver/passengers the space they want to use. Using technology that has become a natural part of our daily lives, Concept 26 opens the door to a new paradigm, enabling many possibilities from in-car entertainment to various services. It also signals the high potential for new business opportunities and the high-tech collaborations that autonomous driving will bring.


Used carnet: Mitsubishi Carisma

The Carisma model, designed and produced by Japanese automaker Mitsubishi in cooperation with Volvo, is not very popular in the second-hand car market. Therefore, it is sold at more affordable prices compared to its competitors. Making a name for itself with its technology and innovations, Mitsubishi is the first brand to produce GDI (Direct Gasoline Injection) engines and present it to the market with Carisma. Mitsubishi Carisma has managed to attract attention with its performance and fuel consumption values since the first day it got off the bands and started to wander on the streets. While the width and spaciousness of the interior together with its dynamic exterior design brought positive points to Carisma, it aimed to meet the expectations of European car users with its durable structure and new technology engines. GDI technology engines, which were first produced in 1997 with the slogan of low fuel consumption, aim to offer lower fuel consumption values under normal conditions and compared to standard engines. However, this does not apply to conditions that exceed the standards and require power. Carisma moves away from its frugal identity in such situations. Carisma's weaknesses are particularly evident in the braking system and safety equipment. Since there is not much demand, the second hand price is at very low levels.




1995 Carisma introduced in cooperation with Volvo

1997 Direct injection gasoline GDI and turbo diesel DI-D engines are introduced.

1999 Made Up. The front design has been renewed.

I want to install LPG in Insignia

With my 2009 Opel Insignia 1.6 Turbo, I can travel 500-600 km with 1 tank. I'm thinking of installing LPG to reduce the fuel consumption of the vehicle. What are your thoughts on this, both technically and personally? How does the LPG system, which can be installed without spoiling the vehicle's warranty, affect the life and performance of the engine? Do you think I should have this mount installed? I think of Prins as a brand. However, Irmscher's Insignia-specific LPG kit will be released, do you think I should wait for this kit?


In my opinion, the LPG system you are considering to reduce the fuel costs of the 2009 model Opel Insigna 1.6 Turbo is risky. There is no LPG application that is suitable for the injection and electronic system of the turbocharged engine with a volume that can be considered as small as 1.6 lt. Prins brand LPG system is applied only for naturally aspirated engines. In other words, there is no developed solution for turbocharged engines yet. This has already been clearly stated on the system's website. As there is no information yet about a similar production of Irmscher, I think the subject is nothing more than a rumor. You did not specify under which conditions you can travel 500-600 km with a tank. If this usage is in heavy traffic conditions in the city, we can accept the consumption as normal. However, on intercity roads, at a consumption of 6.0 lt/100 km, the factory data is 10.6 lt/100 km, while in winter, this average can easily increase to 12.0 lt/100 km in urban usage. As a result, if there is a consumption of 10.0 lt/100 km and above in out-of-town use, I think this should be a subject that needs to be examined and reported to the service.


Does Opel Astra Have Technical Specifications and Test Measurement Values?

I need the technical specifications and test information and data of the 2000 model Opel Astra Sedan 1.6 16V CD that I own. Would you help me with this topic?


The Astra, which replaced the Kadett, the representative of Opel in the compact class, was completely renewed in 1998 after its introduction in 1991. The hatchback and sedan bodywork of the second generation Astra had the same basics. The wheelbase on both bodies was 2606 mm. The length of the sedan was 141 mm longer than the hatchback, or 4252 mm. While the first generation Astra had soft lines, the second was more angular. The workmanship and plastic quality of the vehicle was sufficient for a compact class car. The second generation Astra, which was offered for sale in Turkey, had a 1.6 16V Ecotec engine and GL and CD equipment packages. In this car, the 16-valve, multi-point injection 1.6 liter Ecotec engine, which served in the first generation Astra, was working. The engine of the Astra 1.6 16V produces 100 HP at 6000 rpm and offers a maximum torque of 150 Nm at 3600 rpm. This easily revving engine can move the Astra without difficulty if it is not reduced to very low revs. The Astra's engine runs a little loudly, and the cabin makes a nuisance noise at highway speeds due to poor insulation. Offering successful handling features thanks to its body, chassis and suspension structure, Astra was one of the most comfortable models of its period. I can even say that it was one of the models with the best handling characteristics in the compact class. In the acceleration tests, we measured the average fuel consumption of the Astra Sedan, which reached from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.2 seconds, as 8.4 lt/100 km. Offering a rich standard equipment for that period, Astra had front and side airbags, remote control central locking, electrically controlled and heated side mirrors, ABS, air conditioning, trip computer.

Can I Put LPG in Toyota Avensis D4?

I own a Toyota Avensis D4. My 2001 vehicle is at 150,000 km and I want to have LPG installed. However, in my research, it is said that there is no LPG kit for the D4 engine. It is stated that it is installed on 70-80 cars for 1,500 TL only in Izmir and it works without any problems. Do you think it is possible to install LPG on a D4 engine? If possible, can you recommend a company and a master in Ankara where I can have the LPG kit applied? If LPG is not applied to the D4 engine, will such studies be carried out in the near future? I also take my vehicle to Toyota service and the service workers stated that one of the oxygen sensors was defective. In the vehicle, sometimes the VSC Off light and accordingly the engine fault lamp flash. 1 of the oxygen sensor is around 400 TL and while this repair is being done, do all 4 parts need to be changed together? How will the engine be damaged if this repair is not done? Would you suggest I replace the oxygen sensor? It is also stated that Volkswagen Golf 1.2 TSI BMT DSG consumes 5.6 lt/100 km of fuel in the city. Considering the power, torque, fuel consumption and DSG compatibility for the 1.2 lt turbocharged engine of this vehicle, what do you think?


There are problems in LPG application due to the operating system of 2.0 lt direct injection engine of Toyota Avensis D4. In the sequential application of LPG, the operating system brain is available and the vehicle needs to work together with the brain. As a result of the common software feature that could not provide this compatibility, various problems were experienced. However, as a result of the developing technology and the increase in LPG brain options, various solutions have been produced. I would say it would be beneficial to consult Prins, which is an expert brand on this subject. The oxygen (lambda) sensor analyzes the exhaust gas output and informs the operating system by checking the fuel mixture in the operating system brain programming of the vehicle at intervals of fractions of a second. If this information is incorrect, fuel consumption will increase. As a result, if there is a broken part in the vehicle, you have to renew it. This sensor is not repairable. Sub-industry productions are cheap, but interpretation skills may not be sufficient. Bosch has universal lambda sensors and they are top quality in the aftermarket. It is useful to try these parts, which are produced with features to adapt to every vehicle, as their cost is low according to what you stated. Volkswagen Golf 1.2 TSI's 105 HP engine power and 175 Nm torque accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 10.2 seconds, while the average fuel consumption of this vehicle, which has a maximum speed of 192 km/h, is 5.6 lt/100 km. The lightened special body structure of this engine also has a great share in these results. However, it should also be taken into account that the factory data fuel consumption results change in parallel with the usage characteristics. However, in aggressive and harsh uses, the consumption values of the vehicle cannot match the factory data.


New Crossover from SEAT

Spanish brand SEAT added X-PERIENCE to its Leon family after SC and ST versions. After the Sport Coupe and ST versions of the Leon, which is among the best in its class with its sporty character and wide-ranging strengths, which started to be sold in Turkey last year, its crossover also came to light. The Leon X-PERIENCE is as sporty as the three-door Leon SC and as functional as the Leon ST. The car, which draws attention as much as its siblings with its high ground structure, Full LED headlights and aggressive design, can be preferred as both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The interior of X-PERIENCE, which has special decorations for the Leon family, includes striking colors, sporty and ostentatious upholstery dominated by black and gray, while alcantara and leather upholstery are offered as an option. The X-PREINCE logo is also featured on the door sills and steering wheel of the Leon X-PREINCE. Standing out with its functionality as well as its dynamic character, Leon X-PERIENCE has a luggage volume of 587 liters. With the rear seats folded down, this volume can go up to 1480 liters. Compared to the Leon ST, the X-PERIENCE is 15 mm higher and uses the MacPherson suspension system. While the car was introduced with two different TDi engines with 2.0 liters producing 150 and 184 HP, the 150 HP engine producing 320 Nm of torque is offered with a 6-speed manual transmission. In the 184 HP version, the DSG gearbox is standard. Leon X-PERIENCE, which has this option, manages to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.1 seconds, while DSG transmission preference has three different driving options "Eco", "Comfort" and "Sport".


Why does the ignition coil fail frequently in my LPG vehicle?

I am using Ford Fusion 1.6 and I have LPG kit in my 2004 model vehicle. I change the ignition coil twice a year in my car. Could you give me more detailed technical information on this subject? There can be several reasons for the failure of the ignition coil or induction coil. Among them; Since the ignition resistance of LPG is higher than that of gasoline, and LPG settings are adjusted to work with a very lean mixture, with an increase in engine temperature, coil wires may break. In addition, reasons such as the fact that the spark plugs have completed their life at the level of 70-80 percent and the original coil is not used can also cause problems. The reason why the renewed ignition coil deteriorates in a short time is also due to the quality of the fitted part (coil). Original coils must be used for ignition coil replacements. Because aftermarket parts can fail in a shorter time than the original ones. Coil failure, which is seen in vehicles converted to LPG, can often be encountered in many cars whose maintenance has been neglected.

TEST: Hyundai Tucson

Hyundai made an important attack in the compact class in order to become popular in SUVs. In the familiar Tucson name, it also offers a mainstream engine and dual-clutch automatic on a brand new bodywork. Hyundai has re-entered the compact SUV class. Knowing that he has to study hard for this, the Korean manufacturer has put rich equipment packages at the top of its list with powerful design, innovative engine and transmission, and the hexagonal front grille design makes Tucson look powerful. Even though it has been used by other brands before, it is a nice detail that the grille shows the depth of the chrome frame from the part where it intersects with the headlights. LED headlights are as successful with their lighting as they are with their design. The daytime running lights, on the other hand, are not in the main headlight group, but in the bumper with the fog lights. Plastic coating is used under the bumper to make it more scratch resistant. This piece was also used on the fenders and under the doors, and continued up to the rear bumper. In this way, while a more functional structure is obtained, the vehicle is perceived as higher than it is. However, a powerful off-road vehicle appearance was obtained. The task of filling the wide fenders is given to the 19-inch wheels. Although the dual exhaust outlets are positioned in the right corner under the rear bumper create the perception of "power", it seems as if it leads to a search for a similar outlet on the left due to its design. Modern lines continue inside. The upright center console envelops the driver. The touchscreen color screen positioned in the center can be viewed easily. Navigation system or rear view camera can be followed on the screen, which is an understandable operating system. The quality of materials and workmanship used in the cabin makes it feel better than the ix35 it replaces, while it is at a successful level against its competitors. Although the long and high hood design gives the Tucson a strong appearance, it makes maneuvers difficult. The viewing angles are restricted with the inclined pillars. It would be nice to have a camera on the front, along with a rear view camera, which is especially useful during parking. The openable panoramic glass roof in our test vehicle keeps the cabin illuminated. Despite taking up space on the glass roof, there is no problem in the living area in the rear seats. The sloping rear seat backrests also increased ergonomics. The front seat cushions are wide enough and comfortable. But the side supports could have been a little better. After a long route, we understood once again that Tucson was developed by spending extra time on comfort. The soft steering system does not tire the driver much. The system, which maintains comfort especially at urban speeds, also shows its difference in maneuvers. At high speeds or sudden lane changes, it becomes numb. Driving mode has been developed for those who expect more dynamic responses in such situations. The steering wheel becomes a little harder with the system that offers the sport option with the button on the gear console. However, this hardness is not at a level that makes it difficult to use. It doesn't even bother to travel with this option all the time. However, despite this equipment, it is not possible to define "dynamic" for the Tucson's steering wheel. In general, the sound insulation of the cabin is very successful. Engine and road noise do not reach a disturbing level in the cabin. The suspension system, as well as the insulation, has a great share in comfort. The damping ability of the suspension system is quite good. In this way, the driver is not affected by the fluctuations on the road. Only when leaving the asphalt and driving in off-road conditions, harsh reactions and noises emerge from the suspension system. Despite the soft running nature of the suspension system, we see that the body does not sway excessively in sudden weight transfers. In lane changes, the bodywork is stable enough not to cause uneasiness. The Tucson, which has a four-wheel drive system, drives front-wheel drive under normal conditions. In order to ensure driving safety and continuity, it can distribute the torque between the four wheels when needed. Thanks to the "lock" mode, which is activated with a single button if desired, it can move up to 40 km / h continuously with all-wheel drive. The driving mode, which we talked about while talking about the steering wheel, also interferes with the transmission settings. In order for the car to give better acceleration responses, the transmission shifts at higher revs and faster. The 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission shifts quickly and smoothly. In the case of sudden acceleration requests, the transmission lags in gear shifting from time to time, and it is generally smooth. Although it is possible to switch gears manually from the gear lever when desired, there is no need for this. Equipped with driving support systems, the lane keeping assistant in Tucson makes small interventions to the steering wheel to keep the driver between lanes. This feature can be disabled if desired. Blind spot warning is another piece of equipment that increases Tucson's driving safety. The brake support system calculates the probability of hitting the vehicle or obstacle in front and brakes. Since the system that detects the object does not know the direction it is moving, it brakes completely just in case. For those who are uncomfortable with such sudden brakes, this system can also be disabled. Under the hood is a powerful petrol unit. The gasoline engine, which produces 177 HP with its turbo support, impresses with its desire to accelerate. Tucson, which achieved a 0-100 km/h time similar to the factory data in acceleration tests, also offers satisfactory results in intermediate accelerations. Thanks to the maximum torque of 265 Nm, which is reached between 1500 rpm and 4500 rpm, successful acceleration is achieved from the lower revs. The engine's compatibility with the 7 DCT transmission and all-wheel drive system also contributed to this success. Standing as well as it accelerated, the Tucson covered a distance of 36 meters in the 100-0 km/h brake test. It also managed to maintain its performance in back-to-back braking. Tucson, which has achieved an average test consumption of 9.5 lt/100 km in terms of fuel consumption, has an acceptable consumption. Compared to the 1.5 182 HP A/T AWD option of Kuga, which is its most serious competitor, starting from 91,805 TL, the Tucson with similar features starts from 95,500 TL. According to this comparison, we can say that Tucson remains on the competitive edge. Article: Koray Kodal
