Lexus Improved Transmission

Recently Toyota has realized that their transmissions are slacking compared to the competition. German automakers and Ford have made a vast improvement to boost power, while keeping engine displacement smaller and efficient. While Toyota is throwing its hat in the ring, Lexus recently released the “NX 2.0T” for a two liter turbo. Many buyers of turbocharged engines do so for the performance, not the increased fuel efficiency.
Toyota, which owns Lexus, uses a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for a lot of its production vehicles. CVTs are transmissions that can change seamlessly through an infinite number of gear rations, from maximum and minimum variables. This is in contrast to other standard transmissions that offer a fixed number of gear ratios. CVTs can provide better fuel economy than other transmissions by allowing the engine to run at its most efficient RPM range of speed. The transmission can also maximize the performance of a vehicle by allowing the engine to turn at the RPM at which it produces the most power. CVTs do no demand a clutch, although sometimes on motorcycles they are used.
Lexus commonly uses CVTs and sometimes it is not hard to find a place that is capable of repairing these transmissions. European Exchange Inc. has years of NJ Lexus transmission repair experience and training. Their main goal is to ensure that your car is returned to you in a timely manner.

Transmission Repairs North NJ

In order to lower prices on hybrid cars, Honda’s new Accord Hybrid is not going to have a transmission. Instead, the gas will be used to spin a generator and power a battery. This can allow the car to get up to 50 miles per gallon. This is nearly double the productivity that this past year’s model produces.

For cars that are not the upcoming Honda Accord Hybrid, the transmission is a pretty important part of your vehicle. If you own an exotic car, European Exchange Inc is a professional company that has been specializing in transmissions for fine imported automobiles since 1976.

Is BMW Doing Away With Manual Transmissions?

Since the first cars, manual transmissions have been preferred by motorists for the style of driving, the way it makes a luxury car feel as well as the way the cars ride. According to an article by, BMW is doing away with manual gearboxes and making automatic transmissions standard in all classes of sedan, SUV and specialized car.

According to the recent report, the shift to automatic BMW transmissions has been going on for quite some time as Europe is moving towards the uptake of automatic transmission. 98.5 percent of all the BMW cars sold in Australia alone have come with automatic transmissions, largely because of the benefits of the newly updated transmission models. Lower fuel transmissions, faster shifting times and a much smoother ride. Experts at BMW believe that manual gearboxes have reached a point where they will actually hinder the performance of the car along with greatly damaging the fuel economy. International BMW manual sales have decreased to 1 out of every 4 cars sold. Strangely, in North America the market demand had BMW put a six-speed gear manual transmission in the same model of car that has seen much decline in manual transmissions abroad.

Do you believe that BMW should do away with manual transmission?

The experts at European Exchange perform state-of-the-art BMW transmission repair on any model or year, and have specialized knowledge about these amazing cars. For more information, contact us today.

How to Prepare Your Car For Winter

A lot of people do not realize that you need to prepare your vehicle for the cold winter months much in the same way that you need to prepare your home. The ice and snow affect the way that your car performs. It is also a good idea to have everything working properly so you do not break down and get stuck on the side of the road in the freezing cold. European Exchange Inc specializes in transmission repair services in NJ as well as many other types of repair and maintenance services. Here are some things that you can do to prepare your vehicle's tires for the winter ahead.

Check your tires. Your tires are going to be the main factor keeping you on the road during slippery conditions. If you live in an area that gets heavy snowfall, install snow tires to all four of your vehicle’s wheels.

Check the tread to make sure that everything is worn evenly. Any tire with less than 3/32 inches should be replaced. Air pressure should also be checked. The cold weather can cause you to lose inflation. Check your owner’s manual for the correct amount of pressure for your car.

If you would like more information on NJ transmission repair service, contact European Exchange LLC.
