A lot of things on cars that are thought to be new technology have been around for quite a few years. A couple of examples, fuel injection on a production vehicle was introduced in 1954 on the Mercedes-Benz 300SL. The first car to receive air conditioning was the 1939 Packard, power steering 1952 Cadillac. And the one that will surprise most is the first Engine-control computer in the Chrysler 300D and De Soto Adventure in 1958 (the devices later failed and were recalled). Electric cars go back as far as 1834 and by 1900 they out numbered gas powered cars. Steam powered vehicles accounted for 40%, electric 38%, and gas 22%.
Today's cars have as many as 12 computers and a buss line to network them to the main computer. They have over five miles of wiring and up to 45 sensors, and since roughly 1994, a computer controls 85% of your vehicle's functions. The majority of this to reduce carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbon (HC), and oxides of nitrogen (N0x) emissions. The remaining is for comforts and safety. Your vehicle's on-board computer controls engine ignition, fuel delivery, emission devices, transmissions, heating & air conditioning, traction control, 4-wheel drive, seat position, mirrors, anti-lock brakes, alarms, GPS systems, speedometers, gauges, SIR (air bags) and even your alternator.
Today's vehicles change significantly every year and continue to advance more with every new model year. That's why our technicians are constantly attending the latest training available from major manufacturers to in-house corporate training in our own training center. When you experience driveability problems, fail a state mandated emission test, or need to have your vehicles Scheduled Maintenance (i.e. 30, 60k service) done, come to the experts that specialize in today's advanced technology.
Most manufacturers recommend that the oil should be changed every three months or 3,000 miles, due to contamination and the brake down of the oils ability to lubricate. At Best Sports Car we provide a comprehensive oil change service. Each oil change includes a visual inspection of the filters, undercarriage and fluids, topping off where necessary.
