Bob Seger's Detroit Made music video is an homage to the Motor CityFiled under: Classics, Videos, Buick, Celebrities At this point, Bob Seger feels like the living embodiment of old-school rock 'n' roll. The Michigan native has been strumming out classic records like Night Moves for decades, and he just released a new single called Detroit Made. It sounds like a future staple of just about every classic car show within the next few years, and the video is dedicated to the Motor City, past and future. Detroit Made is all about cruising in the city in a classic Buick Electra 225, perhaps better known as a "deuce and a quarter." It's straight-down-the-middle rock and could just as easily be from a decades-old Seger album as something new. The video for the new single mixes shots of American classics cruising along Woodward Avenue with a contemporary look at the city. Sure, there are the well-known dilapidated buildings falling into rubble, but the people there aren't just letting the city die. Other parts show the attempts to clean things up and rebuild. Check out the video if you need a few minutes of old school rockin' in your life.Continue reading Bob Seger's Detroit Made music video is an homage to the Motor CityBob Seger's Detroit Made music video is an homage to the Motor City originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 16 Sep 2014 15:00:00 EST.

Buick Encore takes a hit of Mokka to tackle DakarFiled under: Motorsports, Crossover, Buick, Misc. Auto Shows, Opel, Russia, Racing There are many vehicles we'd consider taking racing. Even on a cross-country rally as punishing as the Dakar. But a Buick Encore? That's not one that would enter our motorsports-based consciousness. Yet it's basically what General Motors is entering in the South American rally raid this year, and you're looking at it. Unveiled at the Moscow Motor Show, this rally machine is based on (or at least billed as) an Opel Mokka - the name that GM's European brand applies to the vehicle Americans know as the Encore, Buick's subcompact crossover. Only it's obviously been extensively modified. It's got a ten-inch raised suspension, a 137-gallon fuel tank, carbon-fiber bodywork and... hold on, we're sure we're missing something here. Oh, right: a 6.2-liter V8 kicking out 340 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox. In other words, this is not the same Encore (or Mokka) you can pick up at your local Buick, Opel or Vauxhall dealership. It's not even close. It's not even recognizable as such, really. It was unveiled alongside a more sedate Opel Mokka Moscow Edition and a slew of other local debuts for the Opel brand that you can read more about in the (translated and original) Russian press release below.Continue reading Buick Encore takes a hit of Mokka to tackle DakarBuick Encore takes a hit of Mokka to tackle Dakar originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 03 Sep 2014 07:58:00 EST.

GM recalls Chevy Impala, Cadillac XTS for braking problemFiled under: Sedan, Recalls, Cadillac, Chevrolet Back in April, General Motors launched an investigation into braking issues affecting the 2014 Chevy Impala. Now there's a recall of both the Impala and the Cadillac XTS with which it shares its Epsilon II platform. The issue apparently revolves around the electronic parking brake, which may not properly disengage. As a result, the rear brake pads could rub the rotor even while the vehicle is in motion, causing "significant heat, smoke and sparks." The earlier investigation had been launched following a complaint regarding the forward collision avoidance system, which is now either appears to have been unrelated or possibly a symptom of this larger issue. The recall affects 2013-15 XTS models manufactured between February 14, 2012, and August 22, 2014, as well as 2014-15 Impalas manufactured between January 15, 2013, and August 22, 2014. The total number of affected vehicles reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration comes to precisely 132,921 units, while The Detroit News reports a higher total of 205,000 units - the difference potentially coming down to the scope within the US and more broadly across North America. Dealers will contact owners to update the software in order to fix the problem.Continue reading GM recalls Chevy Impala, Cadillac XTS for braking problemGM recalls Chevy Impala, Cadillac XTS for braking problem originally appeared on Autoblog on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 17:50:00 EST.

Weekly Recap: NHTSA searches for answers after Congressional grillingFiled under: Government/Legal, Plants/Manufacturing, Safety, Chevrolet, GM, GMC, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury By the end of the lengthy session, senators had painted the unflattering portrait of a toothless agency in disarray. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received a brutal one-two punch from Congress this week for its response to the General Motors ignition-switch scandal. NHTSA was hammered in a 45-page House report, and then grilled by senators during a hearing on Capitol Hill. Both on paper and in person, legislators picked apart the agency's plodding, seemingly inept responses to GM, and questioned NHTSA's ability to serve as a watchdog for the auto industry, which has faced extensive recalls, fines and controversy in recent years. Deputy administrator David Friedman, who's only been with NHTSA since 2013, had few answers when questioned on the hill, and by the end of the lengthy session, senators had painted the unflattering portrait of a toothless agency in disarray. Yes, there was some grandstanding. But legislators, and Friedman's responses to their often-testy questions, illustrated a valuable point - NHTSA needs help. It needs more power, more people and more money to effectively regulate on of the most complex industries in the nation.Continue reading Weekly Recap: NHTSA searches for answers after Congressional grillingWeekly Recap: NHTSA searches for answers after Congressional grilling originally appeared on Autoblog on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 11:02:00 EST.
