Chrysler recalls 26k cars due to transmission issue

Chrysler is back with another recall this year, this one concerning its new Chrysler 200 sedans specifically. The problem is a serious one, though arguably not as serious as whatever is causing Jeeps to catch on fire: a transmission problem could cause the car to roll away after it fails to properly shift into park. The auto maker says it has received five complaints from owners who could not get their cars to shift into park. The majority of the affected vehicles are located in the United States.

2016 Audi R8 revealed ahead of Geneva Motor Show debut

Following a small leak earlier this week, Audi has officially introduced its new 2016 Audi R8 ahead of its planned debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

Cadillac recalls 67k ATS sedans to fix sunroof troubles

If you're the proud owner of a Cadillac ATS sedan, you might soon be the slightly inconvenienced owner of a Cadillac ATS sedan. General Motors has revealed that it will be recalling about 67,000 of the vehicles, though thankfully the problem is far less troublesome than many of the vehicular issues we've seen crop up in recent months. The sunroof in select vehicles can end up closing with only the slightest touch of the control, something that (thankfully) isn't dangerous, but certainly annoying.

Aston Martin announces their 800-bhp Vulcan supercar

Though you won’t be able to take it for a spin, the new Aston Martin Vulcan is one you’ll definitely be lusting after. The track-only supercar was just unveiled, and it’s just plain sexy. Aston Martin calls it their “most intense and exhilarating creation to date.” That might sound braggadocios, but it might also be true.

The most exciting thing about the upcoming Geneva Motor Show is the supercars, but the road and driver-friendly companies have new models to show off as well. French automaker Peugeot is introducing its revised model 208. Peugeot's 208 is their compact hatchback model, and it's been the bestseller amongst the other Peugeot models. As far as looks go, it seems to be a polished and edgy update to the Peugeot 208 2014. They've tweaked the exterior and lowered CO2 emissions, but I'm going to focus on the added technology features to this 2015 Peugeot 208.

Android Auto exists because we’re not very responsible

Android Auto exists because we’re not very responsible

Android Auto and Apple’s CarPlay are exciting, emerging tech that will make your car’s on-board system a bit more familiar (and likely more useful, too). With a simplified, blown-up version of features you might find on your phone, either platform promise to bring you closer to your drive and further from unnecessary small-screen activities. Though handy, we’re still curious what led both to your car. Was it pure opportunity, or were there other, altruistic motives at stake?
