What is Hill Start Assist? How does it work ?

1st December 2020
"What to do when you are in traffic on an inclined road?"

Imagine getting stuck in a traffic jam on a steep road. You have vehicles in front of you and behind you, and the road is inclined. You can’t accelerate hard enough for the car to move forward because of the car in front of you. And if you give less power, chances are that you would hit the car behind you.

Hill Start Assist

What to do when your car is stopped on a steep road?

You need a Hill Start Assist.

What is Hill Start Assist?

Hill Start Assist is a feature that helps prevent roll-back when starting up again from a stopped position on an incline.

How does Hill Start Assist work?

This feature can prevent rollback on an inclined road by holding the brakes while you switch between the brakes and hitting the gas. Some versions can also prevent your car from rolling forward on a decline.

What is the science behind Hill Start Assist?

Sensors in the vehicle are used to detect when a vehicle is on an incline. The hill start assist maintains the brake pressure for a set period of time as you switch from the brakes to the gas pedal. Once you press the accelerator, it releases the brake.  In cars with a manual transmission that has this feature, the hill start assist will also maintain brake pressure until the driver lets up on the clutch.

Hill Start Assist working

How to make Hill Start Assist work?

Continue to approach and drive up includes such as hills as you normally would. When stopping on an incline, such as at a stop light, hold the brake using the same pressure as you normally would. As you shift your foot away from the brake pedal momentarily, the car should remain stopped instead of rolling back slightly.

We have simplified it for you in three steps:

1) STOP ON A SLOPE

Come to a complete stop on an incline, such as a hill.

2) HOLD THE BRAKE

Continue to hold the brake as you remain stopped.

3) SWITCH PEDALS

Hill-start assist holds the brake for you while you switch your foot away from the brake pedal to begin driving again.

Tip: Be sure to be aware of your surrounding while attempting the hill start assist.

HOW TO STAY SAFE WHEN TRAVELLING BY CAR DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

30th November 2020
"Disinfect all the surfaces you touch before and after the journey, especially if you’re sharing the car with someone or gave someone a lift."

The whole world is affected by the new coronavirus (Covid-19) global pandemic. The simplest advice on how to stay safe is to stay home.

But what if you have to go somewhere by car? Follow this advice

The main rule is to minimise contact with others. But if a journey has to be made, protect yourself. “Ideally don’t go anywhere. If you have to go somewhere, go alone – don’t share the car with anyone. If you have to go with someone, make sure that the person does not have acute symptoms of respiratory illness. Use a respirator or at least a facemask. Make sure you have the contact details of all the other passengers so that you can track them down if you find out you’re infected,”

How to Disinfect CoronaVirus in Car?

If you can’t avoid coming into contact with others and going somewhere by car, pay thorough attention to preventive hygiene measures. “Disinfect all the surfaces you touch before and after the journey, especially if you’re sharing the car with someone or gave someone a lift,”

Parts of the interior you should disinfect

  • Steering Wheel
  • Gearstick
  • Handbrake
  • Door Handles
  • Touch Screen
  • Steering Column Stalks (Indicators, Wipers, Cruise Control)
  • Elbow Rests
  • Seat Position Controls
  • Door Frame

The best thing to use to disinfect the car interior is isopropyl alcohol and a micro-fiber cloth

Take this cleaning very seriously: disinfecting the steering wheel, gearstick, handbrake, door handles, radio and infotainment controls would occur to everyone, but don’t forget the stalks on the steering column (indicators and windscreen wipers, cruise control), elbow rests, seat position controls, door frames and exterior door handles or luggage compartment handle. These principles are even more important for taxi drivers and other drivers who transport passengers.

What should you use to disinfect the car?

The Consumer Reports organisation, for example, advises using some of the cleaning products you already have at home. At least seventy percent alcohol solution is effective against coronavirus, and isopropyl alcohol won’t do the main surfaces in your car any harm. In fact, it’s what carmakers and their subcontractors use to disinfect parts. To increase your peace of mind, Consumer Reports says you can use alcohol to wipe down the seat upholstery and other soft surfaces in the car. But be careful not to soak them through.

Alcohol should not damage either leather or imitation leather upholstery, but excessively intensive cleaning with alcohol can discolour the material: so don’t scrub the seats and other leather surfaces too hard. After cleaning, though, leather surfaces in the car should be treated with leather protection products.

Parts of the exterior you should disinfect

  • Door Handles
  • Door Frame
  • Luggage Compartment Handle

Also, disinfect any parts of the exterior you touch-mainly the exterior door handles or luggage compartment handle. These principles are most important for taxi drivers and other drivers who transport passengers.

Facemasks protect others

Especially if you are traveling with passengers and one of them is at risk of having come into contact with an infected person, use protective gear, meaning facemasks and respirators. A classic fabric facemask won’t protect the wearer against the virus, but it can significantly reduce the risk of the wearer infecting others. So even a basic facemask is a sign of consideration towards the others in the car and can reduce the risk of infection.

Best Thriller Car Movies of all time to watch in this Lockdown

26th November 2020
"We know you are bored in this lockdown and have plenty of time in your hand you could use entertaining yourself."

We know you are bored in this lockdown and have plenty of time in your hand you could use entertaining yourself. Our team has picked three movies you could choose to watch today.

Best Car Thriller movies to watch in this Lockdown 

Gone in 60 seconds

When a young car thief botches a "boost" (where a large order of cars are to be stolen), his older brother must come and help him out. If they don't steal 50 cars within 72 hours, then Kip is going to be killed by his shady bosses. Kip's older brother is Memphis Raines and is a legendary, and now retired, car thief. Memphis rounds up his old buddies and they attempt to steal all of the cars required. Complicating matters are the cops, other car thieves, and a dog (you'll have to see it).

Death Proof

A deranged stuntman stalks his victims from the safety of his killer car, but when he picks on the wrong group of badass babes, all bets are off in an adrenaline-pumping, high speed, white knuckle automotive duel of epic proportions, where anything can happen.

Death Race

Overcrowding in the US penal system has reached a breaking point. Prisons have been turned over to a monolithic Weyland Corporation, which sees jails full of thugs as an opportunity for televised sport. Adrenalized inmates, a global audience hungry for violence and a spectacular, enclosed arena come together to form the 'Death Race', the biggest, most brutal event.

Yes, of course, there are a lot more movies related to cars, bikes, and roaring of engines. We will be giving you a daily dose of it. Stay tuned with us.
