  1. According to foreign media reports, Turkey's economic crisis has had a serious impact on car companies including Ford, Toyota and Fiat Chrysler. After the devaluation of Turkey's Lira, Turkey's new car prices rose, leading to a drop in new car sales by about a third in 2018. New car sales in Turkey fell 34% to 543,231 in the first 11 months of 2018 compared with the same period last year, and fell 42% to 58,204 in the first 11 months of November, according to data from the Association of Automobile Dealers in early December. The Turkish Association of Automobile Manufacturers said that by the end of November 2018, Turkish automobile production had fallen by 8% to 1.43 million vehicles from a year earlier, and export volume was basically the same as last year, to 1.22 million vehicles. It is reported that Turkey attracts many car companies to put into production mainly because of its low production costs, rich resources of skilled and semi-skilled workers, and easy access to the European Union, Eurasia and the Middle East market. Many car companies have localized production in Turkey and provided customized models for the local market. European consumers prefer hatchbacks, while Turkish consumers prefer cars, which account for about half of the local market. As a supplier of automotive parts, Feilong Jiangli is sure to look forward to the recovery of the automotive market, so that parts suppliers can slowly recover.
  2. Ford, Toyota, BMW, Subaru, Volvo, Honda and Mercedes-Benz are planning routine shutdowns at their factories, including those in the United States that started after December 21 and are expected to resume production on 2nd,January. Nissan will follow a similar shutdown schedule, but will resume production on 3rd,January. The additional shutdown period of Lansing Grand River Plant will prepare for the new production shift model starting in mid-January. People familiar with the situation said that the Lansing Grand River plant has had two production shifts and plans to cancel one. Although the assembly line operates faster, the body and spray painting will continue to maintain two production shifts. The Lansing plant employs about 1,900 people and has stopped producing ATS cars since June. Production of Cadillac CTS is expected to end in the near future with the commissioning of CT5. Chevrolet Cormelo's sales showed a double-digit decline in 2018. The situation of the whole international automobile industry is not good, leading to the closure or shutdown of most automobile factories. As the largest pump manufacturer in China, Xixia Water Pump and its pump production subsidiary also bear certain pressure. But we have a large customer base and are not affected by it as a whole.

    65 mustang

    Hello, My dad has a 65 mustang coupe with an I6. He has had this car since 75. Some body rust as with most old cars. Had the engine rebuilt 15+ years ago but not much in miles on it. He has had some set backs recently as he lost his job of 35 years. Due to thus he has come to the conclusion that he will probably never get to work on the car and so he has talked about getting the fluids changed out and driving it a few times then selling it. I find this to be frustrating. Not sure what the car is worth but I don't think he is selling for the money any way. Here is my question. If he were to give me the car what would you guys recommend doing to the car. As in keep it original or install a new engine. Body work I can do most of my self or can have my uncle help. What kind of investment would I be looking at with upgrades. Engine, transmission, new rearend, etc Thanks About Me: I'm new in this forum, I am a consultant and have worked with multiple firms You can check Broadcast Monitoring Video, one of my work.

  12. I am a teenager, looking for a used either SUV, truck or sedan(Preferably a SUV or truck). I have up to $35k but I would love to keep it under $32k. I live in the Northeast so it needs to have AWD or 4WD. Also I don't like Asian cars, I just don't think they look nice. Reliability is not really an issue. Mostly looking for a car with good looks and good features. I've been mostly looking at 2012-2014 Grand Cherokees, Explorers and F-150s.

  15. Hi I work for a private company. I recently got the choice for opting for a 2014 Ford Taurus SE or a 2014 Ford Escape S. I test drove both the cars. Though I liked the escape due to its SUV looks and versatility,I preferred the luxurious ride of the Taurus. I actually don't mind owning any of them. It would be good to know the opinions provided.

  21. There is a rattle on the back of my 52 ford fiesta zetec. I had a look and the silver metal that is folder around the fuel tank has rusted off at the bolt. Is this an urgent fix? Also would I be able to get it welded back on or will it be a ridiculously expensive thing to sort?

Thanks, Dave.
  23. I am in the market for a new car and I am torn over a couple of options, and need some assistance. Especially with the debate on Ford EcoBoost vs. Chevy Flex-Fuel engines (as pertaining to CARS not SUVS/TRUCKS) Which is more reliable? Better gas mileage? (CARS not SUV's) Overall better rating?? Can you please tell me your favorite and why? 1) 2013 Ford Fusion Titanium (Turbo FWD) Vs. New 2014 Chevy Impala LT (3.6L V6) 2) 2013 Ford Taurus SEL vs. 2013 Chevy Malibu LTZ If you have any other opinions on cars that are not chevy or ford, please let me know...I have also been looking at the 2014 Mazda 6...I heard there is a turbo Diesel engine coming out soon?
  24. When I get up to at least 40-50mph my cars makes a loud noise but when I accelerate the noise stops. It only makes the noise when my car is in motion and I'm not accelerating. Any ideas on what may be causing this noise??
