The CTS model is a lighter car, made of high tensile steel. It is stiffer, safer, handles better, and above all, is more efficient.

Question

Cadillac in the rear-view mirror of the European premium brands 2014 Cadillac CTS One auto trend that shows little sign of waning is the move towards more luxury or premium cars by manufacturers and consumers alike. As baby boomers age, they have earned the nicer things in life, and the offspring of baby boomers are getting used to the finer things in life, so more automakers are moving upscale. The Europeans do luxury and performance better than most and the Japanese luxury brands have been putting in their time to becoming a real force. But long before the Japanese, there have always been the American luxury brands, with many firsts in features and technology. Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest, along with Mercedes-Benz, and continues to be General Motors’ flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Looks The smaller Cadillac ATS was released a year ago and went on to win the North American Car of the Year award. General Motors has taken that platform and elongated it to produce the lightest mid-sized car in its class. It’s a full 173kg lighter than the benchmark BMW 5-Series it competes against, and 34kg lighter than the outgoing car. A lighter car, made of

Verdict The price of the CTS ranges from about $51,000 for the base model to $66,000 for the top premium trim level. The Vsport, high performance model is priced at almost $75,000. The Cadillac CTS is not an inexpensive car, but it offers many features like standard heated and vented leather seats, Bose stereo and push button start even on the base model. Compared to some of the other mid-sized luxury sedans it is less expensive, plus it is a worthy car for any driving enthusiast.

Truck tires tread lightly in the snow Remember that your four-wheel drive vehicle may help you get going quicker than other vehicles but it won’t help you stop any faster..

‘‘

’’

Ian Harwood

The temperature is starting to drop, the leaves are clogging up the streets and snow is beginning to fall in parts in parts of B.C. Driving in the winter season brings challenges no matter which part of the province you call home. My remarks are aimed chiefly at truck owners but the message is common for all: driver and vehicles must be equally prepared. In winter, braking and stopping vehicles of all kinds is perhaps

where most of us get into trouble. The tires play a critical role in stopping the vehicle, and so they need even more care and attention than in the other seasons. Most SUVs have a passenger car tire classification with M+S stamped on the sidewall, for Mud and Snow and are considered all- season tires. If it is not, your vehicle must be fitted with tires suitable for any type of climate, even the most severe ones. In winter the pressure of the tire must also be controlled more frequently. This is because a reduction of the outside temperature causes a contraction of the air inside the tire, accelerating the normal and gradual pressure loss process by a value around 1-2 PSI for each 5° C decrease in temperature. Contrary to popular opinion, a lower inflation pressure than normal does not improve tire traction on snow. It makes them much more prone to damage. Always remember that in any season and with any

temperature, insufficient pressure is always the main cause of tire damage. Use brakes carefully. Brake early. Brake correctly. It takes more time and distance to stop in icy conditions. Watch for slippery bridge decks, even when the rest of the pavement is in good condition. Bridge decks will ice up sooner than the pavement. Do not use the cruise con-

trol in winter conditions. Even roads that appear clear can have sudden slippery spots and the short touch of your brakes to deactivate the cruise control feature can cause you to lose control of your vehicle. Don’t get overconfident in your 4x4 vehicle. Remember that your four-wheel drive vehicle may help you get going quicker than

other vehicles but it won’t help you stop any faster. Besides, many 4x4 vehicles are heavier than passenger vehicles and actually may take longer to stop. And don’t bank on your 4x4’s traction. Your 4x4 can lose traction as quickly as a two-wheel drive vehicle. If your vehicle is equipped with anti-lock brakes, do not pump them in attempting to stop. The right way

is to steer into the skid while applying the brake pedal evenly. Look farther ahead in traffic than you normally do. Actions by cars and trucks

will alert you quicker to problems and give you a split second extra time to react safely. ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca

Perpetual driving self-betterment: Because you’re worth it

’’

Alexandra Straub

B.C. racecar driver Cherie Storms told me she was taking an advanced driver training course to appease her father’s wishes. She’d been putting it off since teenagedom. That said, her father is an accomplished racecar driver and a proficient motorist, so you could argue it was an inevitability. But she had to find the desire in herself first. What followed, even she didn’t think would happen. She recently took home the championship title for the B Spec series in her Mazda2 for the 2013 race season. She grew up in a motorsports household but it wasn’t until she actually got behind the wheel at the driving course that her mindset changed. “I was just overwhelmed with all of the technical aspects that it takes to be a good driver,” she stated. It’s like what my grade 12 math teacher always said, “Math is not a spectator sport.” There was even a poster on the cubicle wall to remind us. The same thing goes for driving. Except there’s no poster in the cubicle for that!

Every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, there’s a possibility you can change your life or the lives of others....

We need to be an active participant, not a wallflower. Anyone who has taken advanced driving courses will know exactly what Cherie is talking about. It’s not just about knowing how to shift gears on a manual transmission without jerking the car, or parallel parking your sedan without curbing the rims. Driving is so much more. I understand that this mode of transportation is a necessity for many. And it’s something done out of convenience rather than love. Kind of like laundry or grouting the bathroom floor tiles. Then again, for others, it’s a passion. Myself included. Taking a specialized course, whether it’s a track day or a race school isn’t just for wannabe racers. It’s for everyone. And we can all learn if we have an open mind. We read to keep our mind sharp. We walk/run/work out to keep our bodies active. We sleep to keep our bodies functioning. Why should driving be any different? Why shouldn’t we actively engage in making ourselves better drivers? Every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, there’s a possibility you can change your life or the lives of others. We might not think too much about it, but operating a vehicle is a huge responsibility. Poor driving habits, not shoulder checking, not using your signals, driving in the left lane when you’re not passing are minor details in the grand scheme of things, but have a large impact. It’s never too late to refresh the basics and then pick up a few new good habits. For example, if you look at any of the top athletes in their sport, they’re training most

consecutive Formula1 world championship. Sure, he gets a break, but he’s constantly training to be faster and stronger. In another interview, I chatted with Izod Indy racecar driver Simona de Silvestro. She tells me that there’s really no such thing as an “off-season.” She says she trains all year long. In fact, she trains harder when she’s not always behind the wheel of a car to prepare for the upcoming races. If the pros do it, we should to. Some of the most fun I’ve had behind the wheel of a car has been at a driving school. Whether it was the three-day racing school at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with the Skip Barber program, or a track day at the Mission Raceway with Morrisport Advanced Driving, or even a track program close to you, it’s a win-win. If we’re all safer drivers then the chances of accidents are minimized and we can keep our vehicles dent-free longer. And avoid going through insurance claims. The few hundred dollars it takes to enrol is of infinite worth in the long run. Alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca Twitter.com/cargirlsgarage

Winner of the Week

Vernon resident Rodney Knopp is our first Question of the Week Winner. We asked readers to tell us about a favourite car from the past and Rodney had no hesitation in nominating his old Fiat.

“In 1978 when I was in high school in Kamloops I owned a 1972 Fiat 2-door sedan,” Rodney explained. “I was keen on a girl in school, and one day she asked me for a ride. While driving and chatting, the muffler fell off the car. She laughed and ducked down so as not to be seen by anyone. “I dropped her off and she laughed some more as I drove away, as loud as the car could be without a muffler.” Young Rodney figured that was that but . . . “Catherine and I are now in our 30th year of marriage and still love how the car connected us!”

automatically adjust to a driving situation. An optional air suspension was also available with an electronic damping system. The E350 (coupe or sedan) is powered by a 3.5 litre V6 with 268 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The E550 (coupe or sedan) has a 5.5 litre

The sedan also comes in a high-performance AMG 63 edition with a 6.2-litre V8 that makes 518 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. All three engines are mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission and drive goes to the rear wheels of the Coupe and to all four wheels of the Sedan. The rear-drive 3.5L V6 gets best fuel economy at 11.9 L/100/km in the city and 7.6 L/100/km on the highway. The 6.2L V8 is the gas guzzler, with a city/highway rating of 16.5/10.2 L/100/ km. All three engines also prefer premium fuel. A standard Dynamic Handling package also allows the driver choose a sporty-set-up at the touch of a button. This changes the continuously variable damping, the speed-sensitive power steering (with variable centering), ESP/ASR (traction control), accelerator response, and speed of

automatic gear changes. New active safety innovations included Attention Assist, which is a driver drowsiness monitor, PreSafe, which is preventative occupant protection system, Adaptive High Beam Assist, which automatically dims headlight high beams, and an automatic emergency braking system called Distronic Plus. Attention Assist is a warning system that can sense a drop in driver attention level. It continuously monitors more than 70 different driver performance parameters, such as erratic steering behaviour, and will signal when it’s time for the driver to take a break. Four new E-Class models were added for the 2011 model year: an E350 4MATIC station wagon, E350 BlueTEC diesel sedan, and two convertibles, the E350 cabriolet and E550 cabriolet. At highway cruising speeds you can barely hear the E350 BlueTEC diesel

engine, throttle response is fast (for a diesel) and pulling power (398 lb ft of torque from 1600 to 2400 rpm) is phenomenal. Engine upgrades followed in 2012. The E350 4MATIC got a direct-injection 3.5-litre V6. The E550 4MATIC got a 4.6-litre bi-turbo V8 and the E63 AMG got a 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8. All models also receive a revised transmission, electric power steering and LED license plates. Even though owner costs tend to be higher than average, the E-Class made Consumer Reports’ ‘Recommended list of cars to buy and the E350 BlueTEC was singled out for special praise. If style, comfort and safety top your auto “wish list”, and you’ve got the money, consider the remarkable Mercedes-Benz E-Class. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca

A complete mechanical check should always be performed by a reliable auto technician prior to purchase.

Recalls on the 2010 to 2012 MercedesBenz E-Class: 2010/2011: The power steering assist system may fail due to the loss of power steering fluid from a fitting on a high-pressure power steering line. Dealers will inspect, tighten the fitting and, if necessary, replace an O-ring seal. 2011: Rear window privacy glass may not conform to Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 205 Glazing Materials. Dealers will replace the affected windows.

2011: Diesel fuel may leak from a fuel heater o-ring seal, on the fuel filter assembly, in vehicles equipped with a diesel engine. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the diesel fuel filter assembly. 2012: The right side window curtain airbag may have been manufactured incorrectly and, as a result, could deflate more quickly than intended following deployment. Dealers will replace the right side window curtain airbag.

People point and laugh at Jim Knowles when he drives his Smart Fortwo Electric Drive through downtown Campbell River. But he and his wife Catherine have the last laugh when they open up their hydro bill. “I think the last bill was just a few dollars more than the one we got before we bought the car in July so that’s inexpensive driving,” said Knowles. “I work out at the airport and so I travel about 10 kilometres each way every day. I never let the battery go below 20 percent but I still find I can sometimes go four days before I plug it in overnight.” In the summer, Knowles said he can easily get up to the 160 km range on a single charge but knows the Vancouver Island winter will take that down to around 120 as the wipers and heater take their energy toll. “We moved from Ladner

Japanese cars were cheap and would not catch on. How wrong was I? I can tell you that early Japanese cars are becoming much sought after so let’s look at some that are still affordable, if you can find a survivor or rust free example.

Investing in collector car futures Looking into my automotive crystal ball, I see a number of reasonably priced Japanese cars with the potential to go up in value, not down. And while you wait for their price to rise these collector cars of the future should give you endless driving pleasure – that is until you sell! Now to be fair, I’ve not always been right so there’s a caution. In 1973, I recall talking to a man, who had just returned to the UK from Australia. He told me about a car called a Honda Civic, which would make a Mini look ridiculous in compari-

the Japanese Lotus Elan. Unlike the thoroughbred and somewhat finicky Lotus engine, the Miata’s four-cylinder, twin-cam, four-valvesper cylinder engine is very reliable. In an eight-year production run, 430,000 first generation Miatas were built. This rock solid, rear-wheel-drive sports car does not rattle or shake like most convertibles. The soft top can be raised and lowered effortlessly with just one hand. The Japanese engineers tried out more than 100 different exhaust systems until they achieved the sound they desired to make it sound like a British sports car. Pay $5,500 - $9,000.

1990-99 Toyota MR2:

The second generation MR2 was larger and weighed (160 to 180 kg) more than its square predecessor. The body styling was now much more streamlined; if you use your imagination, it has a resemblance to both the Ferrari 348 and the Ferrari F355. Because of this, the new MR2 was labeled by some as “The poor man’s Ferrari”. If you purchase the turbocharged version, you might feel like you are driving a Ferrari! Pay $5,250 - $7,000

1971-73 Datsun 240Z:

An early Datsun 240Z or event a 260Z from a dry climate such as California or Arizona, one that you can still see and count the spot welds on the quarter panel rear wheel arches is a car to snap up. These Ferrari 275 GTB lookalikes have a magnificent overhead-cam, straight six-cylinder engine and independent rear suspension. Consequently they are fast and handle very well. Parts are also still readily available. Pay $7,250 - $21,000.

1993-95 Mazda RX-7:

The twin sequential turbocharged RX-7 is a model that has generally been overlooked by many. The 1.3-litre Wankel engine screams and behaves like a motorcycle with its 8,000 rpm red-line. With 255hp it is a sports car without compromise, unfortunately also not many buyers! Mazda had priced this model out of the market. If you can find a mechanic familiar with rotary engines and want to have some fun, this is the model to consider, definitely one-step up from the Miata. Pay $10,500 - $18,000
