Top 5 cars to buy in the UAE in 2018

UAE is one of the craziest markets to have some of the best cars available worldwide. Not only are the residents here spoiled for choice, but the love for cars has led to an unlimited catalog of some amazing Supercars, Luxury Cars & Sports Cars that are nowhere to be seen in the world. Some of the most beautiful & rare cars exist here in UAE. In fact, as per a survey by Autodata Middle East, people in UAE on an average change their car every 3 years. It’s that frequent! And it is this reason, that pretty much all the manufacturers are available in the UAE.

With such variety of cars in option, one is sure to get confused. While a car in every design and budget is available in the UAE, a majority of the car buyers also think about a lot of factors like car maintenance, parts & resale value. Every car depreciates differently which needs to be factored in when buying a car. In order to make your car buying decision a little easier, here is a list of the top 5 car manufacturers & their top selling cars in the UAE between 2017 and 2018 in descending order.

Buying a Car: Should you go for a New Car or a Used Car?

There are a lot of questions that are involved when deciding on buying a car, the first and the most important one is, should you buy a new car or an old car? There is always confusion and a sense of fear as you are going to do this once every 3 to 5 years.

True, that buying a new car ensures low risk, less hassles and full factory warranty for a few years that will give you peace of mind. But, buying an old car does mean a lot of savings. Because no one tells you about the sinister-sounding financial word: depreciation! A new car loses close to 20% of its value from the moment it is driven out of the showroom. Even if it does not lose that much, driving it for a year will ensure that it loses 20% of its value. Not all cars depreciate at the same rate, some rare brands do hold their value exceptionally well. But, if suddenly no one wants the car from the brand that you bought from, you are staring at a way higher depreciation after that.

Not that we can conclude, that used cars are better. While buying a used car, careful consideration of the necessary check points would ensure that you get a car that is as good as a new one. People used to disapprove of used cars by saying it was a sure shot way to buy someone else’s problem. Not anymore. Over the years, cars have never been more dependable. Cars today can deliver more than 100,000 miles before they need major repairs. Regular maintenance on the car like oil change, brake jobs and tires have been reduced as a result of the quality improvement.

Advantages of buying a New Car include –

Made to Order – Gives you the option to spec your new car just the way you want it, like getting the right combination of interior and exteriors color options.

It’s not Used – New car does zero out the hassle by making sure that the car has never met an accident, has not been mistreated by its previous owner, clean history, no wear or tear and more importantly less smelly.

Warranty – Like the other points mentioned above, the option of having a warranty gives you that peace of mind without paying anything extra.

Latest Gizmos & Tech – Cars today come with the geekier tech packed inside. Navigation, USB, Bluetooth, Touch Controls, steering mounted Controls, Launch Control (that you never use), different drive M\modes,

Financing – More financing options and, the banks offer lower financing options on new cars because they are worth more and have yet not depreciated.

Maintenance – Car manufacturers these days offer free scheduled service maintenance for a certain period or mileage, basically saving the cost on its maintenance in the initial years of ownership.

Advantage of buying a Used Car include –

Savings on price – Because buying a used car can save you close to 30% or more, it allows a buyer to step up to a higher-class model.

Depreciation – New cars depreciate the moment you drive out of the showroom. With a used car, there is not depreciation the moment you drive it off. Also, less mental pressure about the first dent or chipped paint as the previous owner would have taken care of those for you.

Cheaper Insurance Rates – The older the car gets, the lesser you pay on its insurance as a result of the depreciation on its price and age of the car.

Easy Registration – Buying a used car saves you a lot time and cost. A used car would require way less registration processes as most of the processes have been done by the previous owner. Also, the cost of registering a used car goes down every year because of its age and depreciation.

Certified Pre-Owned Cars – Buying a used car from a certified pre-owned car dealer ensures that the car has been thoroughly checked and ensuring factory warranty attached with it.

Buying a used car is always a better value proposition. Because, cars are so robustly built these days that a car used for 2-3 years still looks, drives and feels like a new car. Also, if you are learning to drive, then a used car makes a lot more sense as it would save you immensely on the ding that you would occasionally have on your car before ruining your brand-new car with your not so fancy driving skills.

If you get it thoroughly checked by a mechanic, you have nothing to worry when buying a used car. As a car buying consultant, you can reach out to me anytime via email with any questions when buying a New or Used Car.

Car Dashboard Warning Lights – What They Mean?

 

Images have been the best way to make a human understand since ages. We almost always picture the words when someone talks to us. If you still don’t believe me here is an example of it. Car, Apple, Phone, Ball, Rat. Now, I’m pretty sure that your brain did not flash you words but instead the images of all the examples of the words I mentioned above. That is the power of visualization that our brain has and understands that way.

Today, cars are equipped with electronics, safety devices and packed with sensors to monitor the condition of the car. Every time you turn your ignition key to the on position, there are various lights and symbols that illuminate on your dashboard. Also, when the key is turned on, your car performs self-test to make sure all the systems are working perfectly. And all these lights go off once the car starts. There will be times when one or more of these lights will stay on to inform you of potential problem that would need your attention.

The lights you see on the dashboard are colour coded meaning each colour has a different meaning associated with it. There are three types of colours used for indications – Red, Yellow & Green. Red coloured lights indicates a potential safety issue or a serious problem with the car or an important reminder that may need your attention. You should stop your car immediately and attend to the problem. Yellow or Orange lights in some cases indicates something to operate with caution or something that needs repairing or servicing. Green or Blue lights is a visual cue and also an indication that a system is on. A flashing light on the dashboard means it needs an urgent attention without any delay.

While manufacturers these days provide with a detailed car manual, explaining what different warning lights mean on the dashboard in order for you to be better prepared in case of an event. It is highly advisable to go through your car’s manual. The following are the most common warnings and information lights that appear on your dashboard and their meaning. Please note that every car dashboard may be different and symbols listed below may have different designs and colours.

Temperature Warning Light –
It is a serious indication that your engine temperatures is too high or your coolant level is low indicating that not enough fluid is in the system to cool down the engine. The same light in some cases also becomes blue indicating that the coolant temperature is below the optimum performing temperature. The engine should be shut off immediately. It may also indicate a faulty temperature sensor.

Engine Oil Pressure Warning –
This light comes up when there is low oil resulting in low oil pressure. It can also indicate a faulty engine oil pressure sensor. Low oil levels can cause some serious damage to the moving engine parts.

Battery Warning –
This light indicates that the voltage is below normal. This can also mean that the alternator is not working properly to charge the battery and hence the battery drains itself out. When the light comes up, the first that should be done is to switch off anything that draws power from the battery like air conditioning, heating system, music system, electrically heated glass and electrically heated seats. This leads to minimum power requirements from the battery till you reach a professional to help you out.

Brake Warning Light –
It indicates that the brake fluid is low or the hand brake is on. If the light does not go after the hand brake is released, your car would need a professional help.

Airbag Indicator –
It indicates that there is a problem with the air bag system. It needs to be resolved urgently.

Seatbelt Indicator –
In case you are not wearing your seat belt, it’s a safety reminder to buckle up your seat belt.

Door Ajar –
It indicates that one of the door is not closed properly or the door jamb switch has malfunctioned.

Check Engine Light –
It indicates an issue with the engine or can be a minor electrical issue. It can also mean a fault in the engine management system related to emissions or running. The car should be shown to a mechanic as soon as possible.

Traction Control Light –
It either indicates to warn you of a low grip condition for the car which should go off once the car regains traction or a problem with the traction control system.

ABS Warning Light –
It indicates a fault with the anti-lock braking system. This does not mean a brake failure but additional safety features are switched off and may not work during an emergency braking.

Tyre Pressure Warning –
It indicates a faulty tyre pressure sensor or one or more tyres has low air pressure. Tyre pressure should be inspected immediately to fill them to correct pressure.

Glow Plug Warning –
It is a warning for a diesel engine. Diesel engines require help in starting up during cold temperature. The glow plug is a heating element which is activated during the startup. It usually goes off after sometime but if doesn’t it indicated a faulty glow plug which should be replaced.

AWD Light –
This light indicates that the All-Wheel Drive system is activated.

ESP Light –
It’s similar to ABS indicator, indicates a potential problem with the Electronic Stability Program.

High Beam Light –
This light has been for decades indicating that the high beam light is turned on.

Low Windshield Fluid Indicator –
Indicates low windshield washer fluid which needs to be topped up.

Low Fuel Indicator –
Indicates Low Fuel and you need to visit the nearest petrol station.

Service Reminder –
The car’s on board computer shows this indicator to inform you that it’s time to give your car for servicing.

Before buying a second hand car, care should be taken to make sure that none of these warning lights mentioned above remain on after starting the engine. If any of these do remain on, it indicates a problem in the system that the warning light is associated with.

Have you ever had any warning lights on your dashboard? What was the problem and what did you do to solve it?

Car Tire Care Tips, Tire Transcription & Tire Maintenance Guide for Every Driver


Tyres are fascinating not because they roll but for the amount of beating they go through every day without bursting. The bloke who made this possible was Robert William Johnson who invented and patented the first pneumatic tyre in 1845. A year before that in 1844, Charles Goodyear found and patented a process known as vulcanization.

In short, vulcanisation is the process of removing Sulphur from the rubber compound to make them waterproof and winter proof and allowing them to retain their elasticity at the same time. Though, tyres invented by Robert William Johnson were too expensive to manufacture back then. John Boyd Dunlop in 1888 was an inventor of the first practical tyre – a pneumatic inflatable tyre. But he had invented it for a use on bicycles back then and not for cars. But he was the one who laid the basic foundation for the development of tyres in future.

From then till now, it is fascinating to see how much tyres have developed over the years and their usage, life – wear and tear and compounds. Tyres today last for thousands of kilometres before they need to be replaced. And in the lifetime, they go through tough working conditions as well.

So, just recently I had tyres on my car changed. I went to the tyre shop and I was baffled at the number of tyre companies I could make a choice from.  Today, one can simply go to a tyre shop and get their car’s tyres replaced without much of an effort. But it is equally interesting to understand why a particular tyre is desirable for your car. Have you ever paid close attention to those various alphabets and numbers written on your tyre? Well, each one of them has a detailed meaning.

I am simply going to be touching upon car tyres and not any other modes of transport. So if you are a truck or a bus driver and reading this, this article should end for you here. But if you are interested in getting to know something useful, then continue reading.

Tyres are of two types – Tube and Tubeless tyres. Tyres with tubes were the first one to be introduced. But it had some obvious disadvantages ranging from maintenance, stability, cost & friction. A tubeless tyre, on the other hand, is a tyre without the tube inside. The tyre can contain air in itself. A layer of chloro-butyl lining (I wasn’t very bright in chemistry, so expect no fancy formula here) between rim and tyre helps in containing the air inside. The elimination of tube also has some obvious benefits. Mainly helping in

  • Reducing friction between tyre and tube, since the tube is eliminated.
  • Improved fuel efficiency and lesser rolling resistance.
  • Fewer vibrations & better comfort.
  • Lower wheel weight reducing un-sprung mass.
  • In case of penetration of a nail or a sharp object, the air loss is not sudden. This increases safety as it reduces the chances of tyre bursts.

Here is an example of a car tyre with different markings on it.

A tyre has following markings –

  • Width
  • Aspect Ratio
  • Construction
  • Rim Diameter
  • Load Index (Load Rating)
  • Speed Symbol (Speed Rating)

Width –

Width is the amount of contact a tyre makes with the road.

Aspect Ratio –

Aspect Ratio is of section height to section width.

Construction –

There are two types of tyres – Radial and Bias. A radial tyre is the most commonly used tyres for road cars these days. The difference between the two is the way they are constructed, having different ways of a layered arrangement on top of each other. There are a lot of advantages of radial tyres. Few to mention are –

  • They have a longer life as a result of lesser tread squirming and shuffling.
  • They reduce rolling resistance which helps in increasing the fuel economy.
  • Lesser edgewise bending leading to better stability and traction, in turn leading to better high-speed performance.
  • Improved vehicle handling.
  • Improved Braking & Cornering

Rim Diameter –

Whilst a rim is mounted on the hub, the tyre is mounted on the rim. It’s also a tyre’s inner diameter. Changing the size of a rim can impact the performance of the car in positive and negative ways.

Load Index (Load Rating) –

Different tyres come with a different load capacity. The value on a tyre indicates how much load a tyre can be subjected to. A chart below shows maximum load of a tyre against various load index values.

Speed Symbol (Speed Rating) –

Speed Symbol (Speed Rating) is the maximum speed for the tyre at full load. It is indicated by an Alphabet after Load Index. The table below shows the different speed ratings and its corresponding speed limits.

With these basics in mind, you can easily figure out what tyre does your car need to be fitted. Always make sure to put the right size of tyres and all from the same manufacturer. If you still need help in understanding the topic better, you can always email me your queries and I shall be more than glad to help you.

RTA Vehicle Status Certificate to Check Used Car Status in Dubai

RTA

The motoring governing body of Dubai The Roads Transports Authority (RTA) has started launched its own service to give certificates on the status of the used cars in Dubai called the Vehicle Status Certificate before buying them. The certificate includes main and historical data of the vehicle from the time it was first bought. This service was essentially introduced to help avoid a buyer any fraud or deception, increase the awareness and help them make a better judgement while purchasing.

Sultan Al Marzouqi, Director of Vehicle Licensing Department, Licensing Authority, said: “The launch of the Vehicle Status Certificate is a new and distinctive addition to vehicle licensing services. This service provides customers with detailed and important data about the condition of the vehicle, insurance history and validity, vehicle owner history, vehicle condition during the annual inspection process, and other relevant information.”

The RTA service can be accessed through this link and it costs AED 100 to get a detailed report. To use this service, one would not require any specific documents. All you need is Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). The service can be used by anyone be it an individual or o company.

The service requires the buyer to get an approval from the owner by sending a text message containing the use of the code in order to ensure the data privacy of the owner. Once approved, the buyer can obtain a service number to enter VIN of the car. The buyer gets a confirmation from RTA if it is possible for it to provide the details of the car and its history. If it is possible then the buyer is charged AED 100 for the certificate.

The service also goes as far as giving a report for a used car from outside the country. This has been possible because of linking the service to international companies like CARFAX America, the European Auto DNA, that collect information on cars that are imported to the country from various continents like Asia, Europe and America. This gives the service a fairly large database of cars to get information about and at an added fee as well.

The entire process can be performed by following the below steps on the RTA website

  1. Enter the chassis number of the vehicle on the website.
  2. The owner of the vehicle receives a confirmation code as a text message (this step is required to comply with RTA privacy policy).
  3. The owner enters the received code.
  4. The buyer/owner checks all details pertaining to the vehicle.
  5. The buyer settles the service fees by credit card.
  6. The buyer receives the certificate from the website or through email.

Sideways Action from Round 2 of the Emirates Drifting Championship

Posted by Mr MZEE

The first round of the freshly launched brand new series of the Emirates Drift Championship (EDC) kicked off on 30th December in a desert region of Abu Dhabi. The competition has witnessed a participation of 30 of the best drivers from the Middle East to face off against each other in this fresh competition to become the first EDC winner.

Teams Participating in Emirates Drifting Competition

Let’s understand the format of the competition. The course is a custom layout – a track that is specifically designed to suit the more aggressive drivers with high powered cars as well as the low powered cars. This is done so that the lower powered cars can also drift easily on the track and the higher powered cars do not get a big advantage while they attempt single-car qualifying runs in the first portion of the competition.

The first part of the competition starts with a qualifying session, which decides the lineup and course of the further rounds. So, the drivers qualifying for position 9 to 24 pair up against each other in Top 24 in what can be called a sudden death stage. And the drivers who have qualified for position 1 to 8 get an automatic entry into Top 16 stage. In a head to head battle between two drivers, each driver gets a “lead” and a “chase” run, and the judges decide based on their performance, who gets to go to the next round of the competition.

In the first round held in Abu Dhabi, Sultan Al Qassimi took the lead in the Monster Energy sponsored Lunatics By Nature (LBN) team by winning the first round of the competition against a closely held battle between his teammates Khalifa Al Nahyan who finished 4th and Dany Neville who finished 11th. Sultan finished first ahead of Ahmed Omran Al Ameri of Team Red Bull.

The second round of the championship was held at RAK Track in Ras Al Khaimah, where the track was set to witness an intense battle between all the 30 drivers. This time, Ahmed Al Ameri made sure not to miss the opportunity to take the top spot. Ahmed Al Ameri took the 1st place from Sultan who came 2nd and Abdul Hadi Al Qahtani of Team Aljazirah Ford Racing took the 3rd spot. Dany Neville from Team Lunatics By Nature took the 4th place. It was quite a crazy day on the track and the crowds surely witnessed some of the best drift action.

Round 3 of the championship is going to be held on the 15th and 16th of February at the Oman Automobile Association in Oman. Make sure not to miss the action. Mark your dates!

Here are the top 10 drivers and their points after round 2.

Sr No Driver’s Name Points
1 Sultan al Qassimi 95
2 Ahmed Omran Al Ameri 75
3 Ahmed Daham 75
4 Abdul Hadi al Qahtani 72
5 Nicholas Solomon 70
6 Khalifa Sultan al Nahyan 59
7 Dany Neville 59
8 Muath Al Essa 57
9 Hazaa Abdulla Al Hosani 53
10 Saeed Ahmad 51

Car Odometer or Od(d)ometer? Part-2

Odometer Rollback
Odometer Rollback – There is certainly a rise in odometer tampering

Continuing from the last blog, after we see the car. The moment I saw this Civic, I thought the car had really long and a hard life. I asked my friend, “Are you sure, it’s this one?” He said “Yeah! Exactly the one I was looking for.” I paused for a moment. At this point, I realized that all he wanted was a vehicle with four wheels, some boot, five seats and at a price that his bank account would permit him to spend. This Civic was a perfect match for his criteria, essentially ticking all the right boxes except one.

Whilst talking to the dealer he said “This car is company owned and driven car. It’s only 5 years old, it has clocked 25,078 kms and is for Rs.4,50,000 (Approx $7000).” Before my friend could explain the reason he chose this car, I asked the dealer, “But, the condition of the car does not match with the odometer readings? I mean look at the worn out tyres, rattling dashboard and engine swaying around.” At this point, I sensed the dealer trying hard to convince us and failing miserably, regretting his decision to not pursue accounting. At this stage, I insisted my friend to take the chassis number, registration number and odometer reading and to verify it from outside.

So, I advised him to go to any of the Honda’s service center and ask them about the car’s service history. Once he gives all the details, the center would co-operate and not judge him as someone trying to hatch a plan to steal the car.

The next day, I again get a call from him, this time in a worried tone. “This car, when it went it went last time for servicing had clocked 65,240 kms.” At this stage, my doubt was confirmed, that the dealer had rigged the odometer to show the car was in a very good condition and taken care of properly. But what really gave in was that the car looked seemingly tired, dull and was company driven. My friend called the dealer about the car, but he had finally realized that accounting was better.

An odometer reading is like going through a car’s age. The more running it has done, older and more problematic it can be later. Though, there are people (existing in small percentage) that do maintain their cars, irrespective of the kilometers covered. The questions remains how do you discover the car’s true condition if there is no guide to help you. Well, there are a few ways that will help you from getting duped –

  • Always compare the kilometers on the odometer with that of the vehicle’s maintenance & service history.
  • Ask your mechanic to inspect the car for you to compare the mileage and the wear & tear of the car.
  • Notice the condition of various car components like brake, clutch and accelerator cable and match it with the odometer reading of the car.
  • Take a good look at the tyres, to check them for wear and match it with the odometer reading.
  • Raise a doubt, if the vehicle mileage does not match with the old looking condition of the car.
  • If a car has mechanical odometer and not a digital one, check if the numbers on the odometer gauge are aligned properly, and they do not have any wobbling or gaps when you run the car.
  • Do not believe a dealer, blindly.

Car Odometer or Od(d)ometer? Part-1

Car OdometerAfter driving through craters and finding my way through the traffic filled with Olas and Ubers that zig zag the roads of Mumbai, I reached the place for dinner with a friend of mine. Coming from an automotive background I’m often asked for suggestions and opinions on cars. This was just another day, though more interesting as it turned out. My friend asked for some suggestions as he wished to buy a second hand car. Since, this would be his first car, I said “Go for a Maruti Swift;” Generally, this does the trick as it is well-known, affordable and durable.
However, he wanted better, a car that fits his specific needs. So he replied, “Come on. You can do better. Suggest me something that fits my style.” Now I cannot really make suggestions unless I know what they need it for and their budget. Also it matters if they have prejudice to Japanese, Indian (JLR isn’t Indian, it’s just being taken over), American, Korean, European or British.
“Is your wife prone to car sickness?” I asked him and before he could answer, “How many people are going to be using the car? Do you prefer extra airbags for safety? Are the people using it overweight?” Because these are the things that matter when it comes to choosing a car. If you are prone to car sickness, opt for non-fabric seats. If driving on the highway is routine for you, then you would need those bursting pillows hidden inside your steering and the dash, so that you can thank the modern invention like an airbag for saving your life in case of accidents. I went through a full range of necessary questions and based on his answers told him that the best car for him would be a Honda Civic.
He was convinced about it and we had our dinner assuming that this topic was over for me after that. Two days later, I get a call from him saying “Would you be free to check a Civic that I have shortlisted?” I decided to help him out.
The next morning, I went with him to the dealer’s place who seemed like a guy who never really wanted to run an automobile business but instead wanted to become an accountant. He took us to the parking lot where the car was. We looked around for the car wondering where it was, the dealer said “It’s in front of you.” Now, my friend had already seen the pictures of the car before paying a visit to the dealer, so it was obvious that he would recognize the car. But, even he could not.
There is an interesting story that unfolds about the car odometer after we get in terms with the condition of the car. The part two of the blog deals with how we unearth some truths about the actual condition of the car and what how the car odometer was rigged.
