Anyone who’s been out and about in Dubai at 12 am for the last two years as the New Year ticked over, you’d have seen that the unusually-heavy traffic at the time comes to a standstill all over the city as soon as the celebratory Burj Khalifa fireworks begin. Apparently now your car will be impounded if you stop on a major highway to watch the 2013 show.
Toyota has agreed to pay more than US$ 1 billion as settlement money to all those who filed a lawsuit against them regarding the unintended-acceleration recalls for their cars in the United States.
The new 2013 Toyota Prius has been launched at this year’s Saudi International Motor Show in Jeddah.
Honda has revealed some new models that they plan to release in the near future at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon. Ironically, one of the “concept” cars to be displayed includes a Honda S2000 with a daft body kit, which originally stopped production in 2008.

It’s weird that, aside from a brief look at our scribe Vivek Menon’s Mazda 6, we’ve never had a go with any Mazda models before. All we kept hearing about was how Mazdas handled well and all that, but we never took it seriously, especially since the local dealers did not have a media test-drive programme in place. So when we got the call offering us the fresh Mazda CX-5 for a proper test, we were actually sort of excited.
Our previous-generation 2009 Renault Safrane V6 has been a reliable-enough car, but certain interior parts had prematurely worn out in just 2 years — a sign of cost-cutting if there ever was one. So we asked for those parts to be replaced under warranty.
When you watch movies, you see these bikers doing huge jumps over random uneven roads. However this is what really happens when you ride a motorcycle over a speed bump too fast.
There is a massive recall underway for several General Motors models in the UAE, including the Chevrolet Aveo, Captiva, Epica, Optra and GMC Terrain, between model-years 2007 and 2010. It was quietly announced by the UAE’s Ministry of Economy in an Arabic statement, which is why it flew under the radar.
