Titled "I Won't Let You Down," the video was filmed by an octocopter drone, and took about a month of concept, planning, and practicing, and then took four days to shoot. The video ...

How much do I love my Honda Accord? Let me count the repairs...

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Sep 8th, 2008 11:55am

My dear old 1998 Honda Accord needed its registration tags renewed in July. I had been avoiding it, because before it can get registered, it needed to be smogged, and before it could be smogged, there was this pesky "check engine" light on the dash that needed to be put out of its misery. It's been shining at me for several months.... maybe six months. Last time I had one of those dreaded lights (about two years ago), ...

How far are you willing to go for all-around economy?

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Jun 30th, 2008 2:26pm

A subject has come up in discussions with my colleague Rich Truesdell: He asks "Is the prospect of $5.00/gallon gas causing people to lose their sense of reality?" Apparently people are buying 13-year-old Geo Metros for more than they cost new, just because they get great gas mileage. Do you remember the Metro? Basically a rebadged, domestic version of the Suzuki Swift, the little tiny econobox was powered by ...

How Hybrid Vehicles Work

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Jun 2nd, 2008 10:28pm

I've run several stories lately on hybrid vehicles -- comparing their costs against traditional gasoline engines and giving tips on how get the best fuel economy when driving them - and it occurred to me that it might be helpful to explain what makes these powertrains so different. An article I found at the Toyota press site helped quite a bit to explain how their hybrid vehicles combine gas engines and electric motors ...

Pros and Cons of Hybrid Vehicles

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at May 19th, 2008 10:06pm

Now that gas prices are hovering around $4 a gallon, many drivers are becoming more aware of their need to cut their gas costs. And with April being "Earth Month", we've recently been bombarded by messages telling us to make greener choices to help save our planet. Many people combine these messages and believe that their best automotive choice to accomplish both these goals is to drive a hybrid vehicle, ...

Who Says Women Can't Drive Stick?

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at May 14th, 2008 5:56pm

I love driving a manual transmission. My current vehicle, a 1998 Honda Accord, has racked up nearly 145,000 miles on the original clutch, and it’s still going strong. Almost every car I’ve ever owned was a manual, except for the beautiful classic 1968 Ford Mustang I owned in college. All said, I think I’ve put more than 500,000 miles on manual transmissions over my lifetime. And, I’ve done quite a ...
