AA RESCUE ATTEND 3 CAR KEY LOCK-INS DAILY Rescue Patrolmen attend an average of 3 car key lock-ins a day according to statics released by AA Ireland. 56% of these were locked inside the main passenger section of the car, followed by 40% in the boot and 4% in the engine itself. And it’s not just the keys that are getting locked in the car, in many cases drivers have been left frantic as children and pets have also been locked inside. It seems we are getting more complacent with our keys with AA Patrolmen attending 33% more of these incidents in 2009 than in 2008, up from an average of 2 to 3 per day. With 774 cases reported for the year to date to mid September, 2010 is on course to exceed the 1090 cases attended by patrolmen last year. “As an AA patrolman you never quite know what’s in store,� says AA Patrol Manager, Noel Keogh. “There’s nothing more frustrating than when you lock your car keys in your car, a mishap that’s happened to most of us at some stage in our driving careers. Add to this the stress of having a young child locked in a car and

AA

it can become a very serious situation.� “It can happen very easily and in the silliest of ways,� says Keogh. “We had one call out recently where a dog jumped on the internal locking button and locked himself and a small baby in the back of a car in very warm conditions. Luckily as an AA member, help was at hand and the situation was resolved within fifteen minutes. It’s also not uncommon to have people locked out in their pyjamas or less! We’ve had golfers, surfers, joggers and others locking their keys in the boot whilst getting changed!� While most motorists are completely stumped when the keys are locked inside, it is all in a day’s work for the AA. The Patrol force has dealt with them all, and in addition to their own experience they can draw on a database of ‘tricks of the trade’ from the roadside Patrols of AAUK and of other AA-type clubs around Europe and beyond. The result is that 90% or more of cars can be opened by the AA with no damage. For tougher cases where a new key is needed, the AA can arrange that as well.

PARIS MOTOR SHOW Report by KEVIN FENIX, www.twincam.ie

olvo have a reputation for building, comfortable, safe, reliable, cars and this new S60 certainly ticks all those boxes. However, with this latest model, the designers have tried to also give it an exciting and sporty look. Thus the roof slopes down in a gentle line to virtually the rear end of the boot lid, giving the car an almost fast back appearance. The front end is similarly attractive looking, with no visible bumper, but with large flowing headlamp units, a prominent grille with a large Volvo badge, lower air vents for brake cooling and aerodynamics and small but effective daytime running lights. The car is still immediately recognisable as a Volvo, but it is also notably different to the current crop of Volvo saloons.

V ROAD TEST By KEVIN FENIX www.twincam.ie

This particular car was fitted with the D3 diesel engine, linked to a six speed Geartronic sequential manual/automatic gearbox. This combination gave a completely relaxed and effortless driving experience. The D3 engine is remarkably smooth and silent, yet when power is needed, it delivers it quickly and smoothly, thanks to the excellent Geartronic gearbox. Top speed is 215 kph (133 mph), which should be more than satisfactory for all driving requirements. Its 0-100 kph acceleration time of 9.2 seconds is similarly quite adequate for the

vast majority of driving situations. Then to guild the lily, so to speak, it offers an outstanding 35 mpg (8.0 lt/100 km) on the urban driving cycle, with an excellent 61 mpg (4.6 lt/100 km) on the extra urban cycle and 48 mpg (5.8 lt/100 km) on the combined cycle. The D3 engine is a development of the five cylinder engine. It still has five cylinders, but its capacity has been reduced to 1984 cc. Power output is 120 kW @ 3,000 rpm, with 400 Nm torque between 1,400 rpm and 2,850 rpm. In its present level of tune, exhaust emissions are 154 gm/km, putting the S60 D3 into Irish road tax band B, with a current tax burden of â&#x201A;Ź156, at present rates. Considering the size, comfort and performance of the car, that is very satisfactory. This is a really comfortable and relaxing car to drive, when fitted with the Geartronic transmission. The leather covered steering wheel has a high quality feel about it. Being power assisted, the steering is absolutely effortless, yet it has a positive and direct feel, with 2.6 turns from lock to lock. Parking and manoeuvring in tight spaces is helped by the parking sensors, front and rear. The suspension is relatively unsophisticated with MacPherson struts at the front and a multi-link system at the rear. It coped well with our appalling road surfaces, giving a smooth comfortable ride. In the Volvo tradition, the car was just loaded with electronic gizmos. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask me what most of them are or are supposed to do. I do like the heated front seats, offering three different degrees of heating. Then there is the pedestrian, city safety gadget, that is capable of detecting pedestrians crossing your path, or possibly about to cross your path. If you do not see them, or fail to brake in time, the system sounds an audible warning then applies the brakes. The only worry I have is that I contd. on page 6

am not sure if someone mentioned that the system does not work in the dark, or conditions of poor visibility, which if true, would seem to me to be a problem. Another problem, in my eyes, is this modern trend to omit a spare wheel. Instead you get a plug-in air compressor and a bottle of latex. I have only ever had to use this solution, a long, long time ago, on a caravan wheel and it worked, but all the time I had this nagging worry that it may not last the distance. In more recent time I have been stranded in south west Scotland, due to a blow-out, which cannot be fixed by this

method and ended up having to continue the journey to north eastern England on the back of a recovery truck. The on another occasion in western England, on my way to the London area, I got another blow-out, but fortunately this time the car had a Spacesaver spare wheel, which at least allowed me to complete the journey, albeit taking much, much longer, due to the speed restrictions applying to the use of such tyres. On a motorway, it is not too bad, as you can use the slow lane, but on a country road, it is an absolute nightmare, with the traffic congestion it builds up behind you.

From a driving point of view, the instruments and driving controls, are all laid out for comfort, convenience and ease of use. The instrument binnacle, behind the steering wheel, has two large, analogue dials, for the speedometer (left) and the tachometer (right). The speedometer dial also incorporates digital information for the trip and total distance recorders, as well as the fuel level. The tachometer has digital warnings for things like an open door, plus an outside air temperature indicator and similar useful information. Both gauges have large clear white lettering on black

backgrounds, which makes them easy to see at a glance. In a similar vein, the controls for the heating and ventilating and the audio system are clearly marked, easy to see and easy to use in the centre console. In the Volvo manner, the centre console is a thin structure, with a largish storage space behind, accessible from either side. The two horizontal arms of the steering wheel have additional switches for the cruise control and the audio equipment. Above the vent at the top of the centre console, there is a small digital screen that can show a variety of useful information, from the satellite navigation to the various audio selections. In the now generally accepted manner, there are stalks under the steering wheel for the lights and direction indicators, plus the wipers and washers. In the tunnel behind the gear selector, there are two cupholders, under a sliding top cover, plus a 12v socket. Behind this, under a padded centre armrest, there is a conveniently large storage box for things like cameras and other items of a bulky nature. I must admit, I quickly acclimatised to the comfort and refinement of driving this Volvo, so it can be a nasty culture shock, when you have to change into something not in the same league, no matter how good it may be. If I have a small disappointment about this Volvo, it was that the seats were upholstered in a combination of leather and cloth, rather than all leather. Apart from that, they were comfortable, well shaped and supportive. While black is not my favourite choice for interiors, at least in this Volvo, there was a contrast in the different shades of the leather

and cloth and the use of burnished aluminium on the steering wheel, door handles and associated trim, plus the centre console, all helped to alleviate, what can frequently be, in my eyes, a very sombre and depressing interior ambience.

short distances. As always shoulder room would be tight, but the cushion is reasonably soft and headroom is not too compromised. The two outer positions have ISOfix fittings for child safety seats. When all the seats are in use, the S60 has 0.339 cubic metres of luggage space. That is not all that generous for a car in this segment of the market, but if all the seats are not needed, the rear seat is divided 60/40, which does give you a lot more flexibility. If you need all the seats, you can explore other possibilities, like a roofbox, or a baggage trailer. This Volvo can carry up to 75 kg on the roof, or it can tow unbraked trailers of up to 750 kg. When it comes to braked trailers, it can take up to 1600 kg, which should be more than satisfactory. Many, many times in the past, I have often wondered if the people who design cars, actually drive cars themselves. The reason for this, is that you are presented with what appears to be a fabulous looking design, but

when you come to use it, you find the instruments cannot be seen, controls cannot be comfortably reached, or there are other vital flaws in its operation. Unfortunately this vexing question came to me, very forcibly, once again, when driving this Volvo. Even more annoying and surprising, was the fact that it was associated with something that could reasonably be associated with safety! This discovery in a Volvo was MOST DISAPPOINTING! Around thirty years ago I first encountered heated front seats in a Volvo. It was terrific, as that year we had a bitterly cold winter, with plenty of snow, ice and frost. That big Volvo had superbly comfortable seats, something I have ever since associated with Volvos. In this car I put

my hand down the outer edge of the seat, looking for the wheel, to adjust the angle of the backrest. The first thing I found was the lower seat belt mounting. Getting around this I had to push my hand lower and rearwards, feeling for that wheel, only to find my arm jammed between the wheel and the base of the B-pillar, so while I could feel the adjuster, I most certainly could not use it comfortably. Also to turn it, I had to lean forwards and twist my body around to the right. In this agonising position, I had absolutely no idea when the backrest was in the desired position. Next I tried to adjust the lumbar support, only to find the adjustment wheel jammed down between the side of the seat backrest and the central armrest cum cubby box.

PARIS MOTOR SHOW REPORT

AC was an old established British company, set up in 1904. It had a very difficult life down through the years, but will perhaps forever be known for the Cobra model built in the nineteen sixties in association with Caroll Shelby and powered by the Ford 427 V8 engine, which had a cubic capacity of 7.0 litres. In those days it provided a phenomenal performance, with 0-60 mph acceleration in an electrifying 4.2 seconds.

By KEVIN FENIX, www.twincam.ie

Now the rights to the design seem to be in the hands of a French company. While the styling remains unchanged, power is provided by a Chevrolet Corvette 6.2 litre V8. Two versions of this engine are offered, producing 325 kW and 482 kW respectively. There are also two body styles on offer, the traditional open two seater roadster and a two seater coupe, with removable roof panels over the two seats. Performance levels are as follows : Specification Top speed 0-100 kph Power Torque Unladen weight

mats, or preferably a lighter colour like beige, or light grey. Still, if I had to, I could quite comfortably live with the upholstery combination of the show car. So while I have hesitated to

I

n different circumstances, this could well have been my Star of the Show! As regular readers/viewers will know, I like red cars. I also like polished alloy wheels and I just love convertibles. I also like chrome trim setting off the whole design. Finally I like colours other than all black for the upholstery. So far this Megane CC has everything going for it. Years ago I thought that a folding hardtop was the greatest invention ever, but with the passage of time, I have come around to preferring a high quality folding fabric top. However, for some reason, I have always considered the Megane CC to be amongst the best in the folding hardtop brigade. I looked at this latest Megane CC and liked what I saw. I sat in the driver’s seat and once

again I was happy with what I found. I sat into the back seat and found it to be up to acceptable standards. So far almost everything was going in the Megane CC’s favour. In fact it was just that niggling sensation that I could not, at the end of the day, give the accolade to a car with a folding hardtop, even though in recent weeks I have road tested another folding hardtop model, from another French manufacturer and came to the conclusion, that if I had to, I could quite easily live with the car as my everyday transport. While this car had a lot of black in its interior, it was set off with red, which helped to alleviate the sombre ambience all black interiors create. Naturally I would have preferred more red, with black for just the facia, window sills and floor

award it my “Star of the Show” I still liked it very much and would be happy, nay delighted to own one, in the same colours and finish as the show car.

PARIS MOTOR SHOW REPORT

By KEVIN FENIX, www.twincam.ie

Seat IBe concept eat see a bright future for electric vehicles in an urban environment. They rightly assume that young people will want a car that is stylish and exciting looking, besides offering a satisfying performance in an urban setting. In these circumstances range is not as important as style and pride of ownership. The IBe is designed to be just as much at home in London, Berlin or Paris, as it is in Madrid or Barcelona. As a 2+2 coupe, they see it as the perfect lifestyle vehicle, for the young and young at heart. There is ample

S

seating space for two, with plenty of room in the luggage space for a shopping expedition. For short trips there is also sufficient space for two additional passengers in the rear seats. These seats are divided 50/50 so that three people and additional luggage may be carried. The folding seats also facilitate the carrying a variety of recreational equipment or holiday luggage. The IBe is all electric with a 75 kW/200 Nm electric traction motor, located in the front of the car. The Lithium-ion battery pack is located at the

back under the luggage floor. This combination gives a top speed of 160 kph (99 mph), with 0100 kph in 9.7 seconds. The top speed is thus well above the legal maximum in most countries within the European Union, while the acceleration is well up to sporting standards. Best of all this performance is delivered emissions free. Range is 130 km (80 miles), which while problematic for touring and holiday purposes, is sufficient for daily urban use. The car has an unladen weight of 1,100 kg.
