On April 20th, 2010 a Deepwater Horizon oil drilling rig exploded and killed 11 workers, spawning what is predicted to be the biggest oil spill in this country's history. The oil is spilling out at over 5,000 barrels a day due to the three breaks in the well pipes and hit the Louisiana coastline late Thursday night, nine days after the initial spill.

Nothing quite says you've made it like driving a Mercedes Benz. But why? What is it about this kind of car that exudes luxury and status?

For older drivers, there's no denying that Mercedes has a sense of history which adds to the mystique of the brand even today.

Gottlieb Daimler got his start in 1886, when he built a true "horseless carriage." He was considered to be the father of the internal combustion engine. When he died in 1890, he left control of his company to William Maybach, his chief engineer. He also left behind a deal with a Mr. Steinway (the piano guy) to market Daimler vehicles in the United States.

Carl Benz got his start in 1886 as well. He built a motorized tricycle that year, and he followed that up with the first motorized four-wheeled vehicle in 1893 ... Read more »

You can find a lot of police impound cars for sale these days. Not only will you have a better chance of getting newer models, you will also be able to get them at a much cheaper price. If you are ever considering looking for bargain autos, then this is the place to find them.

First, let us explain how the law enforcement or state agencies come to acquire the automobiles. Government agencies, such as the FBI, DEA, Highway Patrol, Sheriff's department, Border Patrol, IRS, and the Local Law Enforcement seize properties of people who have done unlawful acts. This can even be from individuals who can no longer afford their car payments, or from companies who have committed fraudulent transactions. Whatever the case, the government has rights over the reselling of the items to the public after a certain amount of time after seizure.

Mercedes Benz, now run by the Daimler Group, seems to be taking fuel efficiency, sustainable and alternative energy to a higher scale than some of the other European auto manufacturers.

The problem here is that only one of their hybrids, the C-Class sedan comes in a flex fuel option in the US. Their other ventures in hybrids such as the 400 BlueHYBRID and their research on coup model hybrids are only being offered in Europe in 2009.

We took a look at two of their sedans for 2009.

2009 Mercedes Benz C-Class Sedan - The Best

The 2009 C-Class Sedan offered by Mercedes Benz comes in 3 models: the Sport, Luxury and Sport 4Matic. Both the Sport and Luxury model come in rear-wheel drive and have 3.0 liter, 6 cylinder ... Read more »

Credit union auto loans are great for first time buyers in need of money for an upcoming vehicle purchase. In fact, credit unions are usually the best source, because they will typically offer rates and terms to first time buyers that can't be found with other auto lenders.

Unfortunately, not all first time buyers will qualify.

Here are 7 key factors that credit unions consider in their auto loan approval process:

7) Your Credit Rating

There are essentially four credit situations a first time buyer will be in:

Toughest - i) No credit with collections, i.e. medical, cell phone, utility, judgements, tax liens, etc.

Grant money never has to be paid back, and car grants can help you buy your new car or repair your existing auto. There's millions of dollars in various grant programs that are being given away to tax paying citizens, but most people don't know where to find these funds. Once they discover resources such as car grants that can help them with personal expenses, they may not know how to properly apply for them.

But when you have access to the right resources that allow you to quickly find and apply for the grant money you need, the process can become much clearer. Whether you need to apply for car grants to purchase a new vehicle or pay for auto repair, grant money can be found through various private foundations and organizations.

Car Insurance No Claims Discount and Bonus Explained

If you are a young driver or an older new driver who has never purchased a car insurance policy before, you may well have heard of but not be aware of the meaning of the terms 'No Claims Discount' or 'No Claims Bonus'. Most certainly when you first take out car insurance it is highly unlikely that the concept of these discounts was not explained to you, as they are not applicable in the first year of a car insurance policy. Essentially the two terms are the same and mean that for every year of claims free driving you will receive a discount on the following year's car insurance premium. The discount is the amount as a percentage that will be allowed against the car insurance premium you pay, the Bonus concept of the number of years without claims expressed as an amount. The two terms are interchangeable as you may ... Read more »

Back in the day, if you were looking for car insurance, it would involve a load of phone calls and endless questions before you got a quote, and before you could get a good idea of who is providing you a good price. But these days we have something called the Internet, which has been responsible for a whole new way of doing business, and continues to help towards an evolution of business and new emerging markets.

There are many ways in which the Internet has changed and affected the insurance industry.

1) You can now get car insurance quotes online - direct to your computer.

2) You now have access to a wide range of insurance companies - and they are able to reach you much more easily. You no longer have to just rely on those you know or have heard about, neither do you ha ... Read more »

Ah, the topic that never seems to get old when it comes to talking about anything auto-related is the topic of buying a car for the very first time. Almost everyone who purchases a car for the first time will tell you that it's like trying to commit the perfect crime; no matter how hard you try, you always make mistakes that will catch up to you.

Before you even think about hitting the dealerships, think about who you are as a person as well as the types of things you enjoy doing. Figure out whether or not you even need a vehicle to begin with. Do you travel a lot or are you a home body? Do you live in a small town where everything is within walking and/or biking distance? Do you live out in the country where you would be smart to purchase an SUV or some similar automobile that would be able to traverse rough terrain? These and more are the sorts of questions that you will and should ... Read more »

Converting your car to run on electricity is a great way to save money on gas and protect the environment at the same time. Of course if you have enough money you can buy a hybrid car, but if you don't turning your own vehicle into a hybrid is the next best thing.

Here are only some of the advantages of building your own EV:

  • You can slash your gas costs to zero and save hundreds of dollars every month.
  • You will reduce your maintenance costs.
  • You will receive tax credits for the IRS for driving a clean fuel vehicle.
  • You will stop emitting greenhouse gas and toxic fumes and help reduce global warming.
