Advantages Of Buying Used Auto Parts Online

Buying Auto parts online is sweeping the nation. It is amazing how much the world has changed in such a short time. I can remember when I was a kid if my parents wanted to buy something they had to get out the JC Penney’s catalog. That’s right, and then they would call in their order and wait about 4 weeks before they got what they bought. It’s not like this anymore! Things have changed in every area and every industry.

*A larger amount of options – Do you need your auto part to be new? Is buying a used part an alternative? Do you want to compare several options simultaneously? Then purchasing your auto part online is something that you should consider. It is very convenient and you can compare the part you need with several other stores and sellers online. This guarantees that you acquire the best deal and get the most for your money each time.

*Get to know your seller – Most all auctions have an option to rate the seller. This is easily available to you when buying online. Using this tool you can check out the past responses of people who have bought from that seller in the past. This helps you to choose the right person to buy from, lowering your risk of getting cheated online.

*No limits – Think about it, can far can the internet go to? Where is the boundary? There is none! It is it’s own world that we call cyberspace. Therefore when we buy our auto parts online we have much more options and have higher odds of finding a sale. It is great to have a shopping center that goes on and on forever.

*The store is never closed – There is no rushing down to the auto parts store before they close. As long as you have an internet connection the store is open and you can buy. This means only one thing for those who buy online; convenience!

*The Cost – That’s right, the most important aspect to buying anything anywhere. Many people are selling auto parts through websites that don’t have nearly the overhead that the actual store does. These systems are all automated and you can buy whenever you want too. Therefore the cost is much cheaper!

*An enjoyable Experience – When buying online the transaction can be done in a matter of minutes. You don’t have to waste your time of driving to the shop, or standing in line. It also might free up enough time for you to watch the last quarter of the football game that you were watching. That is what I call enjoyable.

*Website Convenience – There are websites that have all the parts that you need in one site. I know that sometimes the internet can be a frustrating experience and you can search and search with no avail to find what you need. Today with the right words typed into the search engine you can find entire sites catering to your auto parts needs, or any other product that you are searching for online.

As you can see buying through the internet can be a very easy and safe procedure. If you still haven’t bought something online then get out there and make that first purchase. It really can make life simple!

Auto Parts Manufacturers Facing Difficulty

SME or auto-parts manufacturers are facing difficulties due to rising inflationary pressures and ever-changing Government policies. The auto component sector is dependent upon auto manufacturers.

Its like auto part manufacturers are suffering from surge in commodity prices, hikes in interest rates, partial roll-back of excise duties, are some of the most pertinent short-term challenges faced by auto sector. This will lead to price-hike of auto parts and then subsequently of auto manufacturers.

These auto component manufacturers are already manufacturing large number of components and they cant enhance their sales to cover-up their losses through increase in production. Secondly, they are involved in the manufacturing indirectly. Therefore, they want small sized component manufacturer to start thinking before it gets too late.

The auto component manufacturers are always thriving for the best in auto components. This industry is always flourishing due to rising demand of automobiles amongst the people. Initially, industry was facing loads of challenges as there was lot of competition. But the scenario was under control because of favorable Government policies.

Now both factors are against the auto part manufacturers. Suppliers are no longer available with low margins. They want to have their share of margins irrespective of the market conditions. A small supplier wants to earn money to keep the business going. And when the business earnings go tough then there is bound to be price-hike or the quality of product will go down.

In all the cases, the ultimate sufferer is customer only. The increase in cost will result in lowering of sales and contraction of orders for auto-parts manufacturers. The auto-parts manufacturers are affected in both the cases. The market-corrections are likely to affect the auto parts manufacturers.

However, there is a solution to each and every problem. The predictions state that this correction phase will not last for more than a quarter. The things will get back to normal once the market rises-up again. The market predictions foretell about temporary corrections only, so once the phase is over, and then auto-part manufacturers will get back to normal. But the business is bound to suffer for one quarter at least.

Subaru To Offer Srs Cs Auto In Impreza

Subaru of America, Inc. partners with SRS Labs Inc. to offer cutting-edge SRS Circle Surround Auto to the new Impreza.

The new feature delivers surround sound from any audio source including surround encoded content, stereo and mono radio broadcasts, satellite radio, standard CDs and compressed music files.

The automaker, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. of Japan, is focusing on improving its lineup, offers, as well as auto parts accessories such as the Subaru coil springs, engine, upholstery, and the like.

All Is Well With The Willys

In New Delhi: Indian Times News Network has reported that the Willys Jeep which was popular during the Second World War in the forties was recently reported to be going strong. It should be noted that the Willys Jeep has become an icon before the 70s and 80s and has continued to be so until new age vehicles took over.

In a small and dusty town of Punjab, there is still a strong market for the old and abandoned Jeep chassis which automobile lovers go to shop. The largest second-hand jeep market of Moga has connoisseurs that have even descended from the hilly reigns of Shimla, and a number of other states. And thats not all! Who would ever think that the famous Porsche preferring NRI clan in Punjab has become an avid follower of the Jeep Mandi?

According to Mohinder Singh, one of the dealers in Moga, if you see the old chassis and new Jeep Willys, you will not be able to find even one fault in the car and one look at it will make you buy it. Furthermore, once the Willys price is told, next time you know its gone. It only takes about 60 seconds to sell a Willys. The price range of a Willys Jeep starts from Rs 1.65 lakh to a maximum of Rs 2 lakh. The Jeep with all its wonders is one incredible purchase.

The abandoned chassis is fitted with a top of the line Toyota turbo diesel engine which is preferred for its high fuel efficiency and pick up performance and cost about Rs 40,000. Also available are modern accessories and chrome alloys with price ranging from Rs 25,000 and Rs 30,000. The prices also include the margin of dealers that reaches up to Rs 30,000.

The Willys were given post modifications and are set to hit the road. The main road of Moga is flooded with different people especially during Sundays, who converge to the place not only to buy the latest Jeep but also to get the best set of wheels for their vehicles. The latest open air Jeep with its low price tag is not a bad buy at all especially since most of its components like for instance its Jeep exhaust manifold and other auto parts have undergone the same stern quality test as that of the range toppers.

Jagmohan Singh, another Jeep dealer in Moga, There are close to 100 dealers here in the city and each dealer sold at least 10 Jeeps every week. That transpires into a lot of business for us. Many ministers and local MLAs also come here. In fact, most of the students purchasing the Jeep end up getting upgrades every week.

The Moga Jeep Mandi has been in close competition with the Dabwali Mandi which is situated in Sangrur. But according to dealers from Moga they have been able to surpass the Dabwali benchmark since they sell more Jeeps. Most of the dealers purchase their chassis from army auctions but since the auction have ceased, dealers from villagers provide the Jeep Mandi with chassis. Such trade has not affected business at all. The Moga treatment to Jeep has been selling like hotcakes and this has been going on prior to the changes from the army side.

Meera Vs Nano

If there is a will there is away and Tatas have proved this saying by launching Nano, the peoples car. Ratan Tatas dream car Nano took its shape and even before its launch it received a lot of recognition as well as appreciation. The Nano did not only the fulfill Tatas dream but also paid tribute to late Shankarrao Kulkarni, who had also possessed and came close to fulfilling the dream of small car 50 years ago..

In the year 1975 Shankarrao also wanted to make the small car for the masses at the price tag of Rs.12, 000 and in 1949 he created a prototype and improvised five more models over the next two decades. The model was introduced in the year 1970, was a fully working model of his dream mini car and was much smaller than the Tata Nano. In the words of Hemant Kulkarni (grandson of late Shankarrao). Shankarrao was very much obsessed with automobiles and had developed the idea of making small car giving it a name called Meera it was very similar to Nano in terms of engine placement, wiper, seating capacity as well the same in terms of fuel economy too.

Shankarrao, who had a good knowledge of auto engineering, was working under Kirloskars with a team of 10-15 people. All components of the car, including the engine were made locally but some parts like the tires were sourced from Ceat, the electric components were from Lucas, while the glass products came from Ogale Glassworks. He also introduced rubber suspension, adjustable ground clearance, three doors and tilting wheels in a four-wheeler, for the first time in India. It was in the year 1949 the first model of small car with two seater was introduced and in 1951 the three seater was out.

The car was ready to be launched commercially and had also tied up with companies to make spare parts available, but things did not fall on the right tracks for Mr. Kulkaranis dream. He took the car to Mumbai where it was exhibited at the Gateway of India. According to Hemant Kulkarni, red tape and bureaucracy were responsible for the failure. Later he approached the central government but by then Suzuki also ventured into Indian and he lost the battle. More than Rs 50 lakh was invested on the car at the development stage but unfortunately the small car dream eventually remained as a dream itself. One good thing about Meera was that she was known to the Ichalkaranji and also attracted a lot of crowd at the Belgaon engineering exhibition.

Now with the Tatas small car making its debut, the Kulkarnis are now happy that their grandfathers dream is being realized and the family plans to pay homage to Shankarrao on his birth centenary on January 26. A little briefing about Nano and you will know about its similarity with Meera. The talk of the town Nano was unveiled at the 9th Auto Expo at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi and will be launched commercially by October this year. The name Nano was opted to reflect the size and the trend.

Nano is available in both petrol and diesel version. This four-seater is empowered with 624cc; two cylinder engines deliver 33 bhp. The battery is placed at the rear creating more interior space but the boot becomes smaller. Nano comes with independent front and rear suspension and centrally housed instrument panel. The gear-shift is enhanced with 4-speed manual transmission. On the safety feature, the car is undergone complete frontal crash test as per the standard norms as well as the Bharat 3 (Euro 4) emission norms.

Nano when compared with Maruti 800, on bumper-to- bumper length, it is 8% cent shorter than Maruti 800 but is 21 per cent more spacious in interior volume. It is available in three variants. Starting from Base model to two deluxe models with AC. The Base model will be priced at Rs. 1 Lakh (ex-showroom).

Finally Meera the dream car of late Kulkarni was seen in Tatas Nano.

Mississippi Car Salvage Laws

Auto salvage laws were implemented as a measure against the operation of unsafe vehicles on the roadways and Mississippi car salvage laws are no different. Before you are able to drive a recycled car in Mississippi, you are required to make sure that you meet the requirements for inspection and insurance, which are set by the Department of Public Safety. Whether you are the owner of just one salvage car or you sell recycled cars for a living, you must ensure that these requirements are met, since failure to comply with the laws can result in penalties or fines being imposed. Below are a few of the requirements:

Salvage Title

All trucks and cars operated in the state of Mississippi should have a title under code 162 of the Mississippi Department of Public Safety (DPS). You can visit the nearest DPS office in order to get a title for your salvaged car and will be asked to provide your address, name and the identification number of the vehicle that is provided on the salvage title application. Additionally, be sure to provide information relating to the type of damage the car suffered.

Motor Vehicle Inspection

Section 63-1309 of Code 162 requires that salvage cars must be inspected at any authorized auto inspection service station in Mississippi before the car is allowed on the states roads. Ensure you take proof that the car has been repaired when you go to have the car inspected as well as photos of the car before the repair was done. Remember, your inspection has to be done within the district you reside so make your appointments accordingly.

Flood/Hail Damage

Mississippis Salvage Inspection Unit has a Bureau of Investigation, which asks that insurance companies make contact with the DPS before they take over the ownership of any car declared salvage. In addition, insurance companies are also required to title the salvage car in the companys name beforehand. Four photos showing the state of the car before repair is also required in this case. The title for cars suffering flood damage will be marked Flood Brand but for those with hail damage, the title will remain unmarked.

Selling the Car

The DPS Bureau of Investigations require that you inform the buyer that the purchase is a salvage car as this will stay a permanent part of the cars title history. This requirement will apply regardless of how the vehicle was damaged.
