If you want your car to serve you longer and save money on expensive service and maintenance, pay attention to these simple yet really important rules. Experts recommend a few things to keep in mind and a few common mistakes to avoid to make your car last longer. If you stick around till the end of the video, we’ll tell you how you can fix a cracked windshield with garlic. Having the correct tire pressure is a sort of “Goldilocks” situation. If it gets too low OR too high, you can have serious problems. Don't forget about seasonal tire changes and remember to swap your front and rear tires at least once a year. Sharp acceleration and abrupt braking might feel like fun, but they’re actually extremely harmful to vehicles. If you decide to park on an incline and put your car in Park, it puts too much pressure on the transmission. In rare cases, it can even become dislodged or break down. So the best option is to use the emergency brake. With the help of the symbols on the car's dashboard, your car can tell you when something's wrong, like when the engine's overheated, something's wrong with the electrical system, or the brake fluid level is too low. Go to an auto repair shop as soon as possible to save yourself from expensive repairs or even an accident. Weighing your vehicle down excessively does nothing good for the car's suspension, steering, transmission, tires, and engine. Plus, overloading increases fuel consumption and makes the car more difficult to handle. Remember that cars, just like people, need regular check-ups and “health” tests.

While adding air to your tires, make sure they aren't warm to the touch and don't overfill them. -If you’re a fan of sharp acceleration and abrupt braking, remember both of them are actually extremely harmful to vehicles. Plus, you’re just burning more gas than you need to. -Avoid throwing the car into Park before coming to a full and complete stop. The same goes for putting the car into Drive or Reverse before stopping fully: don’t do it. -If you notice the engine light flashing while you're driving, slow down right away because this might be a sign of a serious problem. The brake light lets you know that somewhere in the braking system something has gone wrong. -Check your car’s manual to find out how often you should change your oil or air filter and remember that a lot of it depends on your driving habits. Get yearly inspections and keep in mind that routine maintenance will depend on the season and the mileage. -Get acquainted with the maximum load capacity for your car and stick to it. Try to get rid of all of the useless stuff in your car. -Don't hold the clutch in at long traffic lights. During short stops, shift to Neutral and press the clutch right before you start moving. -Take a clove of garlic, cut it lengthwise down the middle, rub the cut side over the crack, and wipe away the excess juice with a paper towel or napkin to keep the crack from getting worse until you can get it repaired.

Recently I suddenly saw a lot of brand new Beijing Auto Works BJ212 off-roaders on the road, and not only down countryside but also in the city proper. The BJ212 was effectively banned from town because it was too dirty, killing shops in the process. So what was going on? Time to find out…
Therefore I went to the one and only dedicated Beijing Auto Works dealer in Beijing, located just east of the Fifth Ring Road, not far from the WEY dealer I visited earlier on.
Beijing Auto Works (BAW), is a division of the Beijing Auto Industry Corporation (BAIC). BAW makes rough ‘n though SUVs, pickup trucks, and 4×4’s. They have their own distribution channels and dealers.
I asked staff what the heck was going on with all those new cars on the road. They told me the BJ212 got an updated version of the 2.0 liter petrol engine. The upgrade made the engine clean enough for Beijing, the car can go all the way into town; no restrictions anymore!
They also said the updated engine had done miracles for sales, they were now selling up to ten cars a week.
Staff was very friendly and told me all about the power plant, designated 4G20C. It is sourced from Jinbei in Shenyang. Jinbei is a brand under Brilliance (Huachen) Automobile. Capacity is two liter (1.998 cc). Output didn’t change since this engine debuted in 2012: 102 horses and 178nm. Gearbox is a 5-speed manual sending power to all wheels.
Top speed is a decent 115 kilometers per hour and 0-100 is gone in 10.8 seconds.
The engine now complies to the China V emission standard. However, China is already working on an even tougher China VI standard that will come info force in 2020. BAW will likely have to update the engine again to comply with that…
A neat white example. The bull bar is standard. The BJ212 is otherwise very customizable; buyers can spec the color of the convertible hood, color and kind of seats, kind and size of wheels, and the style of the mirrors. The white car was offered to me for 60.000 yuan round, a surprisingly steep discount on the 68.400 yuan list price.
Design hasn’t changed a bit over the years. The convertible hood goes off completely, and the seats and bench go out with one-click; perfect for a pick-nick up mountain.
The interior hasn’t changed a bit either. This ‘modern’ interior debuted in 2012, with a new instrument panel and a radio with a USB slot. But most of the switches look like they time traveled from the 1960’s. And they did. They BJ212 has been in continuous production since 1966! The loose wires are normal, they all have that. For “easy access”, staff said. Copy that. It makes some sense though, for this kind of vehicle.
On the left side a BAW Zhanqi, a slightly larger and more upmarket variant of the BJ212 with a hardtop roof. It comes in a trillion of variants. The base passenger car variant on the photo also gets the new 2.0 engine, and it comes in at 70.000 yuan round.
All very nice but I prefer a red one with a black roof and five-spoke gray wheels. This one was also 60.000 yuan, they didn’t really make any difference in price for different wheels and mirrors and such. Easy.
