The main reason for every other year brake fluid flush that it’s hygroscopic. Big word, just means that brake fluid will absorb moisture from the atmosphere, lower its boiling point and effectiveness if you drive on the track. The water in this fluid can also damage the brake master cylinder over time if not regularly flushed. BMW says the brake fluid needs to be flushed every 2 years, and that’s fine for road cars but will need more frequently for cars that get taken to the track. Interestingly, our first service on our long-term BMW i3 will need a brake fluid flush at two years of age and that’s the only reason for going in for service.
On December 16, 2015, the Supreme Court passed a ban on the registration of diesel-engine SUVs and cars with engines over 2000cc in Delhi and NCR till March 31, 2016. The ban will render around 17 car companies with over 60 variants of their models off the shelf for purchase. Here’s a list of the cars you’re going to have trouble getting these cars:
Out on the road, the new Tacoma drives much like the old one, especially when it comes to steering. The Tacoma’s steering rack is artificially heavy, as if Toyota’s trying to trick you into thinking you’re driving a much larger truck, and it has poor on-center feel. Associate editor Benson Kong agreed. “There’s a sense of playfulness from the steering wheel,” he said, “but the truck becomes such a chore to drive that you don’t want to play too long.” Transmission tuning, too, feels much more old than new. Although we universally appreciate the six-speed automatic’s quicker shifts and the extra cog versus the old five-speed, the Tacoma’s transmission was too eager to hunt for our liking, frequently shifting between fourth, fifth, and sixth gears during typical highway driving in traffic and up steep hills. “The engine is powerful, but the transmission seems to have wider gaps between ratios than I’d like,” testing director Kim Reynolds wrote in the logbook. “Sometimes it feels caught in a situation where it doesn’t have a good-feeling ratio.” Putting the transmission into ECT PWR mode didn’t seem to help things much, though a couple staffers noted more favorable programming while driving around with the transmission in Sport mode. The ride on both trucks was pretty good, generally speaking, though the logbooks are filled with complaints of excessive brake dive on the TRD model. Given the preproduction status of our test trucks, there’s a chance Toyota will fix that issue for production models.
I actually owned one of these exact cars; 2005 XRS in black sand pearl, a surprisingly hard to find color on an even more hard to find car. Made in Canada and didn’t have any glaring manufacturing defects / oversights. The XRS models came stock with a front strut tower stiffener, stiffer shocks and 17″ wheels (slightly larger than the base models). In fact, the wheels and the rear badging are the only way to tell the car apart from it’s bland brethren from the outside. The only thing that went wrong with my car were the gear syncros in 6th, but apparently Toyota has issues with the manuals in the Matrix and other cars. They’re certainly no Honda when it comes to engineering a solid manual tranny (even though Honda has it’s own set of gearbox syncro issues in certain cars… that’s a topic for another article)
