Venture Fleet Auto-Technician BREAKING NEWS - BREAKING NEWS Air conditioning gas is rising to double the price up from January 2014. This is due to a new “green tax” on all air con gases. So, even as we are in the cold time of the year, we need to consider to recharge our air con before 2014 to save 50% of the price! Source: Daily Paper

NEW APPOINTMENT SYSTEM AT TRÁFICO Up from middle of November, you cannot just go to tráfico and take a number. You need to book your appointment online before hand and the waiting time is generally around 10 days at the moment. One person can only deal with two affairs, just as name changes or drivers license swaps, for example. This will make the service costs more expensive. If before your garage was able to deal with 4 affairs a day, now it can only do half. This means same costs on petrol, parking and time for less income. We, as a small business, have put in a reclaim to tráfico to give us more flexibility if not many small business may stop offering this service. .................................................. Do not worry, we carry on offering this service and will keep searching for a way to keep your cost down.

Refreshed Mustang coming in 2013, next generation to be 2015 model By Drew Phillips 2015 Ford Mustang Up until now we’ve been referring to the next generation Mustang as a 2014 model, but our inside sources now tell us that the all-new pony car will actually debut as a 2015 model, with a refreshed Mustang coming in 2013 to fill the gap. This timeline will make the next generation Mustang more inline with the car’s true 50th anniversary, as it will go on sale in the Spring of 2014, the same time the 1964 1/2 model hit showroom floors. Details are still coming through about what to expect from the 2015 Mustang, but Ford’s design chief J Mays has promised that it won’t simply be an updated version of the current S197 platform. “We can’t simply do an evolution of the 2005, 2010 cars,” he said at the 2010 Paris Auto Show. It is widely believed that the next generation Mustang will be based on an new smaller, global platform using an independent rear suspension and will be sold in more parts of the world including the UK, Japan and Australia. The styling will have global input as well, with Ford’s studios around the world bringing designs to the table. We can only speculate about the 2013 Mustang as well, although there are plenty of details floating around. The 2013 Shelby GT500 is rumored to get an upgrade to more than 620 horsepower, and could even receive a twin-turbo setup to replace the suprecharger system. A new 2013 Cobra Jet is also in the works, and a redesigned 2013 Boss 302 will also be produced with styling resembling the 1970 model. Overall, it looks like Mustang fans will have plenty to look forward to in the next few years.

Beware of ice on the road and your windows Winter is upon us, and winter driving comes with it. While safety is an important consideration all year long, there are certainly some auto maintenance jobs and safety checks that are specific to chilled air and winter driving that are a good idea to check into before we’re knee deep in the season. To be sure you don’t end up a road popsicle, or even worse end up with your holiday budget on ice thanks to unexpected repairs, have a look under the hood to be sure things are ship shape. As with any change of season, you should go to your regular maintenance log to make sure you are up to date on the maintenance items that should be taken care of throughout the year. The change of seasons is a great time to go through some once-a-year or twice-a-year auto maintenance tasks........................................

It’s time to make sure you got your anti-freeze topped up and your tyres in order
