San Francisco prides itself on being digital trendmakers and it comes with the territory. They are practically right up the road from the biggest startup hub in the world – Silicon Valley. The same area that gave us Apple and Reddit and Twitter and Pinterest is stuck in the Clinton-administration when it comes to shopping for cars. Sometimes it takes a Silicon Alley startup to show Silicon Valley what they’ve been missing. Enter Mojo Motors.

1. Vehicle vibrations
2. Position of the seat
3. Length of time driving
The pain that often develops is minor, but if ignored the pain can compound into chronic back problems. If you have back discomfort and are concerned driving may play a role, here’s a quick guide to addressing the problem. [keep reading]

We’ve all been witness to auto rebranding during the course of our lives. Some of the most recognizable vehicles on the market become strangers upon the release of a new model. Logos we’ve learned to identify on sight change overnight and leave us confused. Even those mottos, the sayings that stick in our heads or the jingles that become earworms, change from year to year.
How, as marketers and sales professionals, can anyone be sure which rebrands will take off and which will sputter to a stop? Careful planning is necessary, along with plenty of feedback from customers. You can also take a page out of these auto giants’ books. Here are some auto rebrands that really worked. [keep reading]

Automobile insurance rates are based on your driving record, the type of car you drive, the area where you live and the deductible you choose to pay. If you live in a city with one of the worst car theft rates, expect higher premiums (monthly payments). If you live in a state with high premiums to start, you might want to buy a used Honda Fit to save money on gas, instead.

The bureau maintains a “Hot Spots” list of the cities with the highest rates of vehicle theft. The second source was a BankRate.com report about the most expensive premiums in the U.S. [keep reading]
