Nissan updates its ‘four-door sports car’ for 2012

Living Well, Driving Well facilitator Peter Gray

Living Well, Driving Well with BCAA By Jennifer Blyth Black Press

Join BCAA in Millstream this coming Tuesday, Nov. 22 for a workshop exploring some of the tips and techniques for older drivers. The Living Well, Driving Well workshop will run from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the BCAA Millstream Sales Centre, and will look at some of the issues facing drivers as they age, and some of the many ways they can keep driving well for years to come, explains workshop facilitator Peter Gray. “The workshop is designed to raise awareness,” Gray says, noting that while everyone ages differently, there are common issues most older drivers face at some time, such as vision or mobility changes. Given that 95 per cent of the information we need to drive safely on the road comes from our vision, changes to our eyesight can be significant, says Gray who challenges Continued on Pg. B6

As Nissan’s flagship sedan, the Maxima has had its share of challenges. And not all of them from the competition. Take Infiniti’s more posh and potent NEIL MOORE G37x AWD sedan for Metroland example. It starts about Media Carguide $3,000 more than a Magazine Maxima with Sport or Premium package, and presents a tempting upsell with its luxo styling, all-wheel-drive stability (versus FWD), 328 hp engine – and, of course, the added brand cachet. Alternatively, the Maxi’s Altima sibling offers a lower-priced alternative. It can be optioned up to comparable levels, with only a small sacrifice in power (20 hp and 3 lb/ft of torque). And if you don’t need four doors, the Coupe version is a real head-turner. Both are doing bigger numbers, with 3,107 G-cars and 10,846 Altimas sold year-to-date as of Oct. 31. This compares with only 1,802 for the Maxima. Outside competition is also fierce. Hyundai’s V6 Genesis Sedan, which received a power boost for 2012, provides more muscle (and loads of amenities) for a modest bump in price. And both Korean manufacturers – through their Sonata and Optima turbo models – offer substantial performance and panache in the low $30K range. All that aside, there are plenty of reasons to consider the Maxima, which since the early eighties has continued to earn its chops as Nissan’s “Four-Door Sports Car.” It may seem the vehicle has had its award-winning VQ-series 3.5-litre

Aside from a few styling tweaks, the Maxima is largely unchanged for 2012. This vehicle sports big fenders and broad, powerful shoulders. Combined with the wide stance and optional 19-inch wheels, it gives the Maxima a firmly planted look.

V6 forever, and 2002 is indeed a long time ago, but since roughly 1985, the Maxi had been blessed with a series of increasingly capable 3.0-litre V6 engines, not to mention some pretty advanced suspension setups and decent handling for its time. Sure it began as an ugly duckling, but then again, so were most sedans – and haircuts – during the 1980s. It wasn’t until the mid-nineties that I would have considered the Maxima remotely handsome, but with a couple of generational styling breakthroughs in 2000 and 2009, it has evolved into one of the most fetching sedans in its

Wide haunches, combination LED taillights and large-bore dual exhaust outlets add a sporting element to the 2012 Nissan Maxima.

segment. Which is still the case for 2012, as the Maxima gets a mild refresh that includes an updated front grille, new rear combination lights, and new 18and 19-inch aluminum-alloys. Nissan has dubbed its exterior design theme “liquid motion,” likening it to the Continued on Pg. B3

undulation of a wave. The Maxima does have a few features worth noting. First, I like the big fenders and broad, powerful shoulders of this vehicle. Combined with the wide stance and optional 19-inch wheels, it gives the Maxima a firmly planted look. The hood too is striking. Nissan refers to it as “catamaran styling,” and with its high sides, dipping toward a power bulge in the centre, this element hints at the power within. The upturned headlights and wide front grille contribute to the Maxima’s bold first impression, and the high rear deck, LED combination taillights and wide-bore dual exhaust outlets add to its sporting element. Inside, not much has changed for this model year, except for a few tweaks in illumination, trim and interior colour. What also hasn’t changed is the Maxima continues to be offered as one well-equipped model – the 3.5 SV at $37,880. Three option upgrades – Premium, Sport and Navigation – can take it to $40K and beyond. The base model, as you’d expect for the price, comes very well-equipped. Standard features include leather-appointed seats, heated in front, with eight-way poweradjust for the driver and four-way for the passenger; heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel (manual tilt/telescopic); multi-info system with seven-inch monitor; smart key with push-button start; dual-zone automatic climate control with rear vents; AM/FM/CD/ MP3/WMA Bose audio system with speedsensitive volume, two subwoofers (and centre channel) and steering-wheel-mounted controls; Bluetooth hands-free phone; power moonroof and more. Aside from technology, it is the little touches that make the Maxima’s interior so inviting. The instrument panel and raised centre console are clean and uncluttered, with a nice use of chrome surrounds for the gauges, audio switches, vent knobs and rings. The metallic accents are an elegant contrast to the (optional) Atlantic cherrywood trim that I had on my tester. Both the layout and ergonomics of the Maxima’s instruments and controls, not to mention choice of materials, show an Infinitilike attention to detail. Which is high praise indeed, as I believe this luxury marque has some of the best interiors in the business. Optional goodies for the Maxima include seat cooling (front seats only), power tilt/ telescopic steering wheel, hard-drive navigation system, rearview camera, DVD playback, power rear sunshade, driver’s seat memory, 19-inch alloys and dual-panel moonroof. The latter is a nice feature, with both panels combining to give the appearance that the roof is made entirely of black glass. Only the front panel opens, and dual power sunshades can be

$1,920 over the outgoing model. Which I’m sure the company is hoping will translate into more sales for this well deserving, but often overlooked sports sedan.

drawn over both sections. Rear seats are spacious with plenty of knee room, and come standard as 60/40 split fold. With the Sport and Premium packages, however, you get rear outboard bucket seats, with a pass-through replacing the split/fold function. Paddle shifters are also available only in Sport and Premium trim. I’m scratching my head over this, as they should be standard fare in any sports sedan – especially one with a CVT. Yes, the only transmission available on the Maxima is their now largely perfected Xtronic CVT. I’m typically not a fan of these, especially when accelerating hard, as the continuous wailing (at least until you get up to speed) can be annoying. But that was early days for Nissan, and the current version is both responsive and smooth. In the Maxima, the Xtronic has a selectable Ds mode (drive sport) that improves performance through higher revs, automatic engine braking (for downshifting into a turn) and the ability to maintain engine speed during cornering. And the nice, throaty exhaust note is a bonus. Acceleration is deceivingly quick, as the CVT is more linear than a conventional automatic. There’s no “kick” with each gear change. Despite the Maxima’s brisk launch, I noticed minimal torque steer, which is a credit to the car’s engineering that has been fine tuned over so many years. Also significant is the speed sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering, similar to that used on the 370Z. There’s good road feel, and it’s stable at highway speeds – yet it is also easy to

Classic car dealer Al Webster brought eight cars to the fall collector car auction in Toronto. Most were convertibles. Webster knows what people want. ALYN EDWARDS One of the eight cars Classic he offered for sale RIDES was an obsessively restored dark blue 1949 Mercury convertible. “I bought the car in California partially restored and with so many parts that it took three pickup truck loads to move,” the octogenarian dealer recalls. The car had sat apart for a decade after the restoration work stopped. The Mercury convertible was painted a deep blue. Webster finished the restoration with a dark blue canvas top and a blue and white rolled and pleated interior. The results are stunning. Bidding on the car at peak Saturday auction time went to $85,000. But Webster wanted more. “You couldn’t possibly restore the car for that kind of money,” he says. He took the car home with him. Convertibles cost little more to restore but can bring two to four times the money paid at auctions for hardtop models of the same car. A case in point was a nice driver-quality black 1950 Mercury coupe sold at the auction for

2012

$15,950 plus a 10 per cent buyer’s fee. Convertibles and pickup trucks are hot. Muscle cars: Not so much. “I had an off-the-frame restored Camaro SS with the 396 engine and full GM Canada documentation and it didn’t even bring a bid of $35,000 dollars,” he says. But Al Webster knows that bidders recognize the 1949 Mercury as one of the most desirable collector vehicles and is confident that he will sell his pristine example for a more satisfactory price. His convertible already drew strong money at the auction. And a green 1949 Mercury pickup truck with black fenders also attracted at least two very qualified bidders who wanted it. When the gavel fell, the beautifully restored hauler sold for $73,700 plus buyer’s fee. Ford of Canada produced badge-engineered, Ford-based pickup trucks with the name Mercury beginning in 1946. Mercury trucks were not available for sale south of the border. The high auction price paid for this 1949 model could set a world record for a Mercury pickup truck of that vintage. Three very rare convertibles would draw high bids at the auction. An ultra rare 1936 Cord front wheel drive convertible was a no sale after being bid to $105,000. Similarly, bidding for a 1934 Oldsmobile convertible coupe with side mount spare wheels in each front fender closed at $62,000 with the owner taking

it home. An equally rare 1940 Lincoln Zephyr convertible did sell at a hammer price of $64,350 plus the 10 per cent buyer’s fee. At the other end of the scale, an unrestored but presentable 1963 Oldsmobile Starfire convertible went to a new home with a top bid of $4,510 plus buyer’s fee. This was a decent looking entry level collectible convertible in what looked like original white paint with rose colored leather interior featuring most luxury options. “The collector vehicle market is all

over the place because of the economy but they are still a great investment,” says veteran classic car restorer dealer Art Carty, of Fawcett Motor Carriage in Whitby, On., east of Toronto. “It’s hard to tell what will sell and what won’t. Prices vary a lot.” He knows that the best case scenario is multiple bidders who all want to take the same collector vehicle home.

door sedan with a monster blower-equipped 454 cubic inch V8 engine and interior roll cage was apparently sold with a high bid of $32,000. The car had to be run through the auction again when it was explained that the ‘winning’ bidder did not have a bidder’s card and the sale was invalid. The car was run through the auction later and was a no sale with a high bid of $30,000. Dealer Al Webster did sell some of the eight cars he was offering at the Toronto auction. His beautifully restored wood-clad 1948 Chevrolet Fleetline sedan sold for $36,850 plus buyer’s fee to a lady from Texas. “You never know who is going to buy your car and what they will pay at an auction,” he says.

those in his workshop who haven’t had a recent eye check-up as to why. “It’s probably one of the most important factors in order to be able to drive safely.” Mobility is another common concern as drivers age, affecting things like their ability to shoulder check before changing lanes or turning. These concerns are not inevitable, however, and proactive steps like exercise and yoga can help keep seniors flexible – and mobile – for a long time. In addition to the physical changes drivers might face as they age, Gray also reviews changes in the rules and regulations with regards to driving and driver testing. Significant improvements have also come to today’s vehicles, and workshop participants will explore some of these newer features and how they work, Gray notes. Feedback from workshop participants has been great, and judging by the full chairs in the workshops, the information is appreciated. Often it’s simply a matter of reminding drivers of important facts that can be forgotten over years of driving. For example, a local study found that in crashes involving drivers age 55 or older who were solely at fault, the No.1 factor was speed, followed by inattention, then health issues, Gray says. Even vehicle maintenance can play a part. A recent Bridgestone study suggested that up to 97 per cent of vehicles have improperly inflated tires, which can lead not only to increased wear on the tire and gas consumption but also cause reduced grip on the road. “All of these things are really important for safe driving.” For details call 250-391-3250.

SNORING?

SLEEP APNEA?

Most snorers also have sleep apnea which causes being tired all day, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heartbeats (Government website). Millions suffer needlessly and most can stop their nightly ordeals first night. NPN #80027595.

To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH � Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS � For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS �It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, #23 my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON. � Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too. I was scared to go to bed and have an heart attack like my husband. After taking Bell #23 I can now sleep for 5-6 hours peacefully without gasping for air. A blessing. Suzie Weigel, 60, Chattanooga, TN No need to make claims. Bell is using 100% truthful user testimonials and gives a refund guarantee.

ARTHRITIS

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a byproduct of the American food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President #1 We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:� Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON �My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA�I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON�Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.�For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC�Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister.

Without the Internet, Saanich import car enthusiast Benjamin Low might never have known he was driving his 1990 Nissan 240SX all wrong. Inheriting the flawless Ivory White car with a scant 6,000 km from his dad in the early 2000s, it didn’t stay in its original form for very long. Around the same time, Low was also busy with another new toy that bit the 30-year-old with the modifying bug. “It was from a game, called Gran Turismo,” Low says. “And then it started me making mod cars.” The immensely popular racing simulator video game for the Sony PlayStation allowed players to purchase cars from almost any manufacturer and customize them to an incredible level of realism and detail.

body aero parts. “I didn’t have a good idea. I was just trying out stuff and then after going, ‘Oh, what have I done?’” As web use became more refined, so too did Low’s taste for car customization. Influenced by videos of import car tuning culture from Japan, he did a complete overhaul to his 240SX, which he exclusively calls by its Japanese name, the S13. In a matter of a few short years, virtually every part on the car has been replaced by high-end made-in-Japan variants. The car now sports a sleek body kit coupled with adjustable suspension cranked down to the ground that makes speed bumps its worst enemy. It sounds as mean as it looks with both a performance air intake system and exhaust fitted. Inside, almost all creature comforts have been stripped away, leaving a small leather racing steering wheel and two narrow fibreglass bucket seats that require a gymnast’s agility to climb in and out. No modified car is complete without a set of trick alloy wheels, or in Low’s case, “at least” 10 different sets in all different colours that he’s owned during the time he’s had the vehicle. His choice in wheels (called rims in tunerspeak) has also evolved over time – the trend right now is the “hella flush” look where extremely wide wheels, up to nine, 10 or even 11 inches across, are paired with thin tires that completely fill out the entire wheel well, making it sit flush with the car’s fenders. Surprisingly, one of the only semiuntouched areas of the car lies in the engine bay. The Nissan retains its original heart, a 2.4-litre engine producing, by today’s standards, a modest 140 horsepower and 152 ft-lbs of torque. Saving the best for last, Low has future plans to include some go with the show by either adding an aftermarket turbocharger or swapping the engine for the overseas two-litre turbo models that make over 200 horsepower and foot-pounds of torque. “I’ve been modding crazy since probably I was in high school, from ’99 til 2009,” says Low, who indicated he currently has other priorities, like his little baby boy, Brendan. As any car enthusiast will tell you, though, a project is never truly finished. “When I have more time and money later I plan on doing other stuff,” he says, which includes possibly picking up a second S13 to drive every day, relegating the first as a garage queen.

Honda unveils an all-new ASIMO humanoid robot

Honda’s ASIMO humanoid robot.

Metroland Media Carguide Magazine

Honda has unveiled an all-new ASIMO humanoid robot with a world-first technology allowing ASIMO to move without being controlled by an operator. With significantly improved intelligence and the physical ability to adapt to situations, ASIMO has taken another step closer to practical use in an office or public

people. Honda has developed a new system that is key for advanced intelligence. The new system continuously evaluates the input from multiple sensors, predicts the situation and then determines the behaviour of the robot. With this technology ASIMO is now capable of responding to the movement of people and the surrounding situations. This technology also enables ASIMO to recognize faces and voices.

Get a grip on winter driving too close to your vehicle, perhaps slow down to allow them to pass – rather than speeding up to achieve a safe, distance between vehicles. • If visibility is poor, remember to use your lights. This helps other drivers to see you when approaching or when following. You should always turn your lights on when your windshield wipers are on. • Set the vehicle cabin to a comfortable temperature. This can be a challenge during winter when drivers and passengers may be wearing heavy coats in a vehicle, but it is imperative to be comfortable when driving. Cabin comfort includes keeping the windows free of frost, ice and snow. • Avoid overconfident driving, and avoid overestimating the vehicle’s capability simply because it is equipped with anti-lock brakes, fourwheel drive, traction control, winter tires or other safety devices. • Before driving in inclement weather, be sure that your vehicle is properly maintained. Make sure your windshield wipers work properly; have the correct level of antifreeze for heating and defrosting the vehicle; keep plenty of gas in the tank; and always use required safety devices such as seatbelts.

With autumn’s cold weather upon us – and winter not far behind – drivers will soon be faced with icy and snowy road conditions. While driving in the winter, peace of mind can come with improving the contact points between a vehicle and the road surface, explains Brandy Gadd, Goodyear Tire brand manager. “Winter driving is all about preparation, and the key to being ready for winter is taking the necessary steps before consumers get behind the wheel,” she says. • Match your driving speed to the current conditions. If conditions are challenging due to a slippery road surface or reduced visibility, decrease your speed. A slower driving speed allows more time for a necessary response. Always keep the posted speed limits in mind, and understand that those limits indicate the maximum speed under ideal weather conditions. • Plan ahead and try to anticipate potentially dangerous situations. When approaching a curve or potentially slick area of the road, use the brakes effectively. The brakes should be applied only before a curve and on a straight section of the road. • Be alert to other vehicles. Maintain enough distance between your vehicle and the one ahead of you. If someone else seems to be following

Kelley Blue Book names Top 10 Chevys of all time As Chevrolet marks its 100th birthday this year, Kelley Blue Book, provider of new and used car information, has named its picks for the Top 10 Chevys of All Time, including the most significant product and design developments in the company’s history. Formed in November 1911 by pioneering automotive businessman William C. Durant and his then-partner, famed Swiss racing driver and engineer, Louis Chevrolet, the most successful division in General Motors history Chevrolet is a brand deeply engrained in North American culture. In selecting those top 10 picks, Kelley’s staff looked not only at technical innovation, but also vehicles that changed the automotive landscape. Here’s a quick look back at the 10 most-influential and important vehicles that shaped the enduring legacy of the brand that made the bowtie famous. For expanded commentary on the following abridged version of the Top 10 Chevrolets, visit www.kbb.com/ car-news/all-the-latest/top-10-chevrolethistoric-milestones 1912 Chevrolet Series C Classic Six The first step in establishing one of America’s most iconic brands was introduced in 1911 and went on sale the following year. The seminal Chevrolet model was priced at a then-hefty $2,150, which put it well out of the reach of

blue-collar workers who barely earned that much as their annual wages. The model had only moderate success, but set the tone for what would become a megabrand. 1916 Chevrolet 490 While the first Chevrolet was positioned to the middle of the carbuying market – well-to-do professionals -- the 1916 490 was intended to go head-to-head with Ford’s incredibly popular Model T. It got its name from its base price – $490 – a figure that not coincidentally was $5 less than that of its prime rival, and it sent the brand on its present course. 1929 Chevrolet with Stovebolt-Six Engine In the wake of Ford’s introduction of the Model A, Chevrolet went its archrival two better – two cylinders, that is. Equipped with the legendary ‘stovebolt’ six-cylinder engine, the 1929 Chevrolets offered two more cylinders than Ford’s ‘four-banger’ and established the brand as Ford’s key competitor. 1936 Chevrolet Suburban Carryall Recognized by most automotive historians as the first-ever sport utility vehicle, the 1936 Chevrolet Suburban Carryall combined a station-wagon body style with a half-ton truck chassis to create a new market segment that’s still going strong after more than 75

“Arguably the greatest and unquestionably one of the most desirable models of all time, the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray was a rolling revelation in style and technology that has influenced the look and feel of every successive generation.”

years. 1948 Chevrolet Series 3100 Pickup The 1948 Chevrolet Series 3100 Pickup set the stage for Chevy’s modern-day pickups by introducing a new level of unexpected interior creature comforts, like a full threeacross adjustable bench seat in place of the old trio of individual fixed-position perches, inside door locks, ‘Four-fold’ ventilation and an accessory AM radio. 1955 Chevrolet with Turbo-Fire V8 A double winner for the division, the 1955 Chevrolet line ushered in both the now-iconic 1955-1957 ‘Tri5’ era and the spectacularly successful and incredibly long-lived small-block V-8 engine, which supplemented the veteran inline six. The introduction of the new Turbo-Fire V8 option helped Chevy sell more than 1.7 million units in this pivotal year. 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Arguably the greatest and unquestionably one of the most desirable models of all time, the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray was a rolling revelation in style and technology that has influenced the look and feel of every successive generation. 1960-1969 Chevrolet Corvair Created in response to the increasing threat posed by imports – notably the Volkswagen Beetle – the Chevrolet

Corvair also was meant to counter the arrival of new downsized domestics like the Ford Falcon and Plymouth Valiant. Though many car reviewers liked Chevy’s innovative approach to smallcar design, Ralph Nader’s devastating “Unsafe at Any Speed” inflicted a mortal wound to the car’s reputation. 1967-69 Chevrolet Camaro With the Ford Mustang galloping out of the blocks at a record sales pace, Chevy responded by introducing its own brand of pony car, the now legendary Camaro. Although it shared some platform mechanicals with the upcoming Chevrolet Nova, the Camaro’s aggressively refined exterior styling set it well apart from its compact kin. 2011 Chevrolet Volt A genuine revolution in automotive transportation, the 2011 Chevrolet Volt stands as one of the crowning achievements of the division’s century of ongoing progress. Coupling knowledge gained from GM’s pioneering EV1 electric car program in the 1990s, engineers on the Volt development team managed to bring this sleek, well-appointed fourpassenger liftback sedan from an auto show concept to full production status in less than four years. – PRNewswire
