    Hyundai wants to concentrate on the needs of the market. The automaker's CEO in the U.S. said last week that, in its push to keep sales brisk stateside, the car maker would back off on entering the pickup segment and focus more on six and seven passenger crossover SUV. Here is the proof: Hyundai embraces the SUV, eschews trucks.

  • Safe driving is a choice. The statistics showing safer driving practices among older drivers compared with their younger counterparts is a clear indication of this. I hope reports like this serve as wake-up calls to all drivers about the importance of personal commitment.

  • Looks like more car makers are getting busy designing alternative fuel cars. Long ago, only small, barely comfortable vehicles were powered with alternative fuel. Now even SUVs use hybrid fuel or methanol. In the near future, we might see even more, including sports cars.
