Myths and Misconceptions Related to Cars

21st November 2021
"We believe in myths because we have been hearing them for a very long time."

We believe in myths because we have been hearing them for a very long time. We people tend to follow many misconceptions created by people rather than finding out what the reality actually is! There are different myths and misconceptions related to cars as well.

It’s a good idea to understand the statistics, so you can keep yourself as safe as possible when you’re out driving. Here are a few misconceptions believed by the people, let’s find out the reality!!

1. Automatic Cars Are Less Fuel-efficient As Compared To Manual Cars:

This is one of the most believed myths of cars by people which is not true at all. The way automatic cars are made these days has eliminated the truth that they are less fuel-efficient than manual cars.

Moreover, automatic cars of today have more forward gears than cars with manual transmission which helps in a balanced fuel economy in both versions. The extra gears can help with creating more power at lower engine speed, this saves fuel and creates balance.

2. Car’s Regular Maintenance Should Only Be Done at the Manufacturer’s Service Centre:

This is probably another biggest car myth one should not believe. Usually, car dealers provide offers like free warrants, or discounts on servicing costs, etc. but it is not necessary to keep visiting their special service centers after a certain point.

Moreover, If you wish to put your car up for sale, you need to have proper receipts of proper maintenance services. This does not mean that the receipts should be from the manufacturer’s service centers. However, you need to be aware of the terms and conditions of the warranty of the car.

3. Larger Cars have better safety:

Remember, the safety of the passengers depends upon the quality of material used while manufacturing it and how you drive it. Also, it also depends upon the safety features present in the car. If a ‘large’ car is made up of low-quality material, the safety of the passengers will be compromised.

On the other hand, if a small car is equipped with safety features, the passengers are less likely to get injured during an accident.

Moreover, this proves that the size of a car is not related to safety at all.

4. Letting The Car Idle Is Better For Fuel Economy Than Turning The Engine On And Off:

This was true before but has become a myth for today’s generation of cars. Furthermore, this is not true for the modern-day car at all because a car idling for a long time is bad for cars with carburetors that blend fuel and air to run the engine.

Idle car

Present generation cars do not have to spend additional fuel on keeping the ignition on. On the contrary, turning the engine off will help save fuel.

5. Nitrogen Is Beneficial Only For Racing Cars:

Nitrogen is indeed used to fill heavy-duty tyres of racing cars. This is because it is more advantageous to have nitrogen than air in such car tyres but that doesn’t mean that normal passenger cars will not benefit from the same advantage.

Moreover, pure nitrogen does not tend to leak out like air which provides stable tyre pressure for longer durations. Hence, your visits to fill up car tyres will be less when you have nitrogen in them.
