2012 Mitsubishi Sports Car

2012 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder is a peppy convertible with sleek, retro styling and a number of luxurious extras for driver and passengers, all at an affordable price tag. Mitsubishi has announced that 2012 will be the last production year for the Spyder with production ceasing in August 2011, so this model year represents the final curtain call for this reasonably priced two-door sport convertible.

Engine power in the Spyder is definitely nothing to write home about, with a measly 162 horsepower available on the base and GS Sport models and a respectable 265 horses under the hood of the GT. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder’s moderate weight allows it to provide reasonably brisk acceleration and decent pickup, but the four-cylinder models may have difficulty with uphill grades or heavy loads in some instances. The small turning radius and sturdy suspension provide adequate handling under most city driving conditions.

There’s nothing quite like a convertible. The Spyder capitalizes on this truth with a host of features that make this vehicle even more fun to drive, from the available leather seats in the GT model to the cruise control and rear-view backup camera that come standard in every trim level. Power windows and locks, power folding top and the Bluetooth hands-free interface provide added convenience and push-button ease for drivers. Eighteen-inch alloy wheels and heated front seats are available on some models.


While high performance is sadly lacking even in the GT models, the 2012 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder is fun and easy to drive. Best suited for city driving, it offers respectable gas mileage at 20 mpg city and up to 27 mpg in highway testing. Handling is about average for its weight class with some difficulty in acceleration when coming out of a hard turn. The suspension is adequate to provide a smooth ride, but is best suited to the urban environment rather than off-road escapes.

The 2012 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder will be sorely missed when production stops on this iconic convertible. While the Spyder never lived up to its sports car exterior, its price and features made it a favorite among style-conscious drivers and passengers. Even without the performance and pickup of more powerful vehicles, the Spyder is a bargain at the price and offers solid transportation in a sleek and sporty package.




Hummer H2 Review

H2 HUMMER announced the 2008, with a completely redesigned, more refined interior that combines luxury with HUMMER's legendary ruggedness, enhanced security features and a more powerful engine combined with a new six-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain combination improves efficiency of new compared with previous models.




"Hummer H2 2008 is a big step in the evolution of this iconic vehicle," said Martin Walsh, HUMMER general manager. "From performance to comfort and refinement to the overall security, provide a new range of more H2 that customers expect from HUMMER and will be particularly impressed by the new interior more refined. "

HUMMER H2 2008 revealed that in the New York Auto Show. Changes within and outside the propulsion system are also included on the H2 SUT. The '08 H2 and H2 SUT go on sale later this year.

The new powertrain combination consists of a 6.2L all-aluminum small-block V-8 engine, rated at 393 hp (293 kW) - an increase of about 20 per cent on the previous engine - and a Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission transmission. Performance-optimizing engine technologies like variable valve timing and six-speed large gear, including an overdrive "high", the performance and efficiency are improved compared to previous models allow.

"It's one of those rare instances where enhanced performance is associated with improved efficiency," says Walsh. "More power in the H2 helps make highway maneuvers, coming from a freeway on ramp, feel effortless while improving towing capability."

The new, furnished luxury interiors

While drivers will feel the '08 H2 improved performance on the road, they'll appreciate it more when she knows the all-new interior. It has a completely redesigned dashboard, new seats - including a full third row seating for two passengers, new door panel trim, new controls, new rear seat heating / cooling, new to the general rear DVD entertainment system and a new family of premium radios.

"The new interior offers a refined and raw, while maintaining the robustness HUMMER brand," said Dennis Burke, interior designer. "All controls download for printing materials exudes craftsmanship in the interior of the new H2, while small details, like leather seat piping, create a consistent approach, style, premium interior design through HUMMER range. "

Seats H2 is a new, chiseled appearance and offer improved comfort. In fact, HUMMER engineers focused on every detail to improve interior comfort. For example, the front seat belts are now mounted on the vehicle B-pillar instead of the seats themselves. This change enabled engineers uncompromised comfort setting slot. Front safety belt pretensioners are new, and also are standard.

Complementing the new seats, door panels and trim a new instrument panel and new panel of six gauge that includes a more refined and better tolerance. In fact, the new interior is designed with gap tolerances within a millimeter or less. Soft-touch materials and new, more tactile controls enhance the feeling of craftsmanship. A new center stack houses the climate controls and a new family of GM radios - including a standard premium Bose audio system and an available surround sound. The instrument panel also features new vents that enhance heating or comfort cooling throughout the vehicle - especially for second-row seats and third.

Numerous comfort and convenience features are new or transferred in the '08 H2, such as a new rear-seat DVD entertainment system at the top, navigation system, rear camera system view and the heated windshield washer fluid. OnStar and XM Satellite Radio are standard.

'08 H2 also offers a departure from a distance, which allows a vehicle passenger compartment can be heated or cooled prior to driving.

Driving experience

The heart of the '08 H2 is a new 6.2L V-8 that uses variable valve timing technology to maximize performance and fuel efficiency. This engine has 393 horsepower (293 kW) and 415 lb.-ft. of torque (574 Nm). The engine also features lightweight materials, including an aluminum cylinder block, reducing overall vehicle weight.

The V-8 6.2L technologically advanced features also help it meet new federal standards for emissions a year before mandatory implementation.

The new six-speed Hydra-Matic 6L80 RWD electronically controlled automatic transmission backs the 6.2L engine. A six-speed automatic has a wide 6.04:1 overall ratio - including two overdrive gears - that helps deliver an excellent balance between performance and fuel economy. 6L80 is also an ability to "tap up / down", which allows the driver to manually select upshifts and climbing with a button exchange column.

The new scheme will help to drive 2008 H2 and H2 SUT will also provide 1500 pounds (680 kg) towing capacity - to grow 6500 pounds (2948 kg) 8000 lbs (3629 kg). A number of other powertrain revisions also contributes to improved performance and efficiency of the H2, including:

Increased cooling capacity complements the larger, more powerful engine

The electric engine cooling fans reduce "drag" the engine, which allows more power

Regulated voltage control maximizes fuel charging electrical components only when necessary

New LAN electrical architecture is more efficient and uses less power

Standard 3.73 rear axle ratio

Off-road feel is also improved with the new powertrain system. The 6L80 push / down feature provides more control on grades and offers automatic grade braking. It also improves the ratio of off-road crawl around 39:1 - an improvement of around 20 percent.

The transfer case is improved '08 H2 is stronger and better performance. A new traction control system is standard, which helps ensure sure-footed traction in most driving conditions.

Road driving performance or increase the revised steering gear, which is a more rapid and improved returnability center. Driving experience is also quieter and more refined, thanks to new air intake and exhaust system tuned.

The safety standard

By integrating configuration changes, performance and comfort improvements H2 are in the security system. They contain a series of new standard features:

Roof-rail curtain airbags for the first, a system of second and third row passengers with rollover sensing

Pretensioner seatbelts (front seats)

System, electronic stability control with roll

New traction control system

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Also new is a panic brake assist feature - the first application for full-size GM truck or SUV - which detects emergency braking situations and maintains maximum brake pressure to help stop the vehicle more quickly and more control . And 'standard on all H2 models. The standard OnStar system now offers an optional Directions Turn navigation system. Other optional features that contribute to safer driving the rear wall of the HUMMER vision systems - rear view camera system - and the navigation system.

Exterior Improvements

All 2008 H2 is distinguished from previous models with functional changes that maintain HUMMER identify easily recognizable design. Iconic, grid slots for seven features larger openings and lower grille has been enlarged to meet the cooling needs of the more powerful 6.2L V-8 engines. The lower bumpers on '08 models are painted silver (previous models were blacks lower bumper).

The soul of a HUMMER

While the '08 H2 is offered with a new engine and interior, its foundation is the same: a fully welded ladder-type frame that features a three-piece modular design that incorporates a number of hydroformed components. This design delivers outstanding strength, stiffness and dimensional accuracy.

The H2 has short overhangs a radical approach and departure angles and exceptional ground clearance with minimal impact on trails. Standard 17-inch wheels, heavy-duty independent front suspension and five-link rear suspension provide superior handling, carrying and towing capacity. Solid rear axle ensures durable sure-footedness in particular, a tight, off-road situations. Besides the standard platform for the protection and rocker protection. These factors help to take the mantra HUMMER H2 capacity, including traveling through streams 24 inches (508 mm) deep, climbing 16-inch (406 mm) steps and rocks and paddling in the deep sand or snow.

A new four-channel anti-lock brake control / traction (ABS / TCS) provides optimum control on slippery surfaces. In addition, the ABS to detect and adjust its braking capabilities off-road rough surfaces such as gravel and holes. TCS also includes the ability to gain traction through a single wheel, if necessary, and more wheel slip in traction control mode for the second sand and desert racing conditions.

A self-leveling rear air spring suspension system is available for extreme off-road and towing needs.

H2 SUT - maximum utility and fun

As H2, the H2 SUT carries passengers and freight, but does it twist: an open cargo bed enables convenient larger items. When the load requires more space, and 4-6-feet foot (122 cm x 244 cm) pickup bed can be a window in the rear feed Midge, Midge, then fold the seat forward and back. Four passengers, the bulkhead behind the passenger compartment remains upright in the SUT, while providing a lot of load carrying capacity.

Practicality aside, the H2 SUT also offers an open, challenging driving experience. Button a button, the driver can lower all four side windows and rear window. Using a separate switch, the standard sunroof can also be opened, giving SUT a truly external sensation.

    How can there be RD/NDs of 2008 as far as I remember only 15 or 30 days of July were open for filing I-485 after that dates had retrogressed......

    If what u're saying is true...the whole process is as random as possible....

    All I wanted convey is that the current visa bulletin is an opportunity (just like jul 07), IV should try to take advantage of it. They made a mistake by putting in writing that USCIS can not estimate, lets use it to our full advantage.

    Lesser mortals like myself can not do much...but surely IV core can.

    Hi,
    this is my first post...
    I've seen most of you guys are indians, I admire you for being so organized and brave, and also for getting skilled enough to be sucessfull anywhere.
    I'm not in the IT business, I'm not indian, I don't have special skills nor advanced dregrees. I'm just a regular guy who has worked all his life to achieve what he got. Since my degree is a 3 years old, I did not qualify foe EB2 even being in a managerial position for over 10 years.
    I was waiting for the opportunity to file my family's I485 and then my company was bought and I was laid off on jun 14th.
    I've been 6 years in this country, I have 2 american born kids, I've paid a lot of taxes, I have a house mortgage, a car loan...
    Now I'm out of status and worst of all, everything on the GC process is lost.

    I don't think it's fair, I've never done anything illegal, but I'm not ready to leave the country. I need to sell my property, don't know what to do with the car, my wife is on her MBA thesis, I just can't leave.

    I'm telling all this not because I want you to feel sorry, but to create awareness that it's NOT on your hands being legal or illegal. You're in others hands: your employer, USCIS, the adjudicator officer.

    So don't judge others just because you have been lucky enough to maintain your status...

    Good luck to you all in your I-485s

    VZLAN, Ah! I can't return to my country since I am Venezuelan, and I don't plan to raise my kids under communism.

    Exactly man Nothing is in ones hands .. Two identical applications going to two different officers can lead to two different conclusions ,

    I had the exact same question. If one responds to an RFE on his/her I-485 app, is there no place on the online status description where we can find the original receipt date?

    Also, can one assume that his/her case has is pre-adjudicated, if there are no further requests from USCIS after an RFE reponse from the applicant?

    Thank you, JSB, InTheMoment, FromNaija and all others who are providing valuable information (even though some of it is probably only good logical deductions) on this thread.



    jsb

    What exactly is meant by checking the receipt date online and it is 3 months after the date in the paper? All I see on my 485 is a statement that they have received my response to the RFE...I don't see any receipt date or notice dates on the case status online at USCIS.gov

    Just wondering what you mean or am I missing something?

    Hi Guys.. need someone to answer my question, if possible. Thanks in advance.

    My PD is Sep 2004 ( EB2 India ) and I was also July 2007 filer, and also the victim of my 485 being closed by USCIS nebraska in May 2008, which anyways got reopened within a month after supplying necessary documentation ( Approved I140 and moved to new company etc ) . I work on an EAD now. My question is

    1) My AP is expiring in mid October. Should I file for a AP renewal and spend extra money ? Do I have a chance of getting GC in September ? Btw I was told last year at USCIS newark, NJ office that all the background checks and other things show clear on my case.
    2) I moved my apartment 2 blocks away early this year, but my city and zip code are the same. If I file an AR11 ( change of address ) , will it raise any flags, since I have read on this forum that a change of address sometimes prompts an RFE. I am a bit scared of going through ups and downs, so I just feel like not doing anything which might create any kind of issue after so many years of pain.

    Please give your insight. Thanks so much in advance !

    Chandu - Can I Ask you something here.

    Just today I was reading on the ac21 thread, how you lamented that we as a community dont stand up for injustice and how some folks are worried that writing AC21 letter may mess up their situation somehow ......

    And right now , you are suggesting that the best thing is to get out of any kind of mess. So the person knew he was doing something illegal and his 8 month old kid was beaten up and you feel he paid the price and now No Problem and he should move on ???????????

    Somehow, this 2 + 2 isnt equating 4 for me. What am I missing here ?

    Sorry Chandu but I'm disappointed with you right now.

    You misunderstood my point here. Everyone are doing things at their own risk and must be ready to face any consequences.

    Our friend did know she was on tourist visa and illegal to work.

    Let me explain what is happening on sulekha

    You have some people advertising that they provide nannies for elderly care, child care, they provide food on daily basis and also provide cooks for occasions, services ranging from janitor work, to helping with groceries and all sorts of stuff.

    This industry is big - very very big. Some agencies did tell us they have nannies on j1 visa.

    We on this forum who are very vocal are the most innocent folks in the world when it comes to this kind of stuff and we have a straight tangential approach of punish someone for beating the kid.

    Well - lets use our brains instead. Believe me - our community does not have any sympathy, because we are not united.

    People can come on this forum and give advises - but the person who implements it must know what he can expect and that's why he posted here. Our friend is on h1b and maybe having his 485 pending and he must have careful thoughts before he leaps into something.

    What is the guarantee that a certified nanny wont ill treat the child. I have heard that nannies need not beat the child but do give mild sedation to babies in their milk so that the nanny can be in peace. If a nanny is doing that do you think she will be caught on tape?

    There are tons of things nannies do and you may never be aware of it or may not be caught on video tape.

    Folks,

    I edited the letter so please take a look at this version. Some of you'll have suggested I condense the letter to a series of questions alone - I think this is a good idea and will be more effective in capturing attention. I will prepare something in this format (but it will have to wait for the weekend).

    For now, my intent with this letter is to ask that the ARBITRARY nature of the visa bulletin be put to an end. I am exhausted by the cycle of raised and dashed hopes when the visa bulletin moves forward and backward.

    To those of you'll who brought up the issue of schisms between EB2 and EB3, please read paragraph two above. Let us correct this randomness before we tackle each of the issues that are making life so difficult for us. You could start by gathering your friends, co-workers and other EB3 applicants and put together your list of issues to be addressed along with solutions. My view is that if USCIS is incapable of taking care of the matter then we have to pitch in and suggest/prod/request/demand it of/from them.

    Together we can do it!

    And here's the letter:


    The Ombudsman
    USCIS

    September xx, 2008

    Sir/Madam,

    On behalf of the employment-based legal immigrant community in the United States of America, I am writing to highlight the ongoing egregious inefficiencies in the immigration “services” provided by the USCIS and the DOS. There have been numerous occasions when there have been erratic movements in the DOS published visa bulletin dates. This, as we understand it, is owing to USCIS under- or over-estimating the number of applicants available for adjustment of status. And in the rare instances when the date finally moves forward by a substantial window, USCIS tends to approve the more recent applications as opposed to the ones that were filed earlier. Let me explain with an example: in the July 2008 visa bulletin, the cut-off date for the India EB2 category was 01 April 2004. A month later, the cut-off date for Indian EB2 applicants abruptly moved forward two years and was set at 01 June 2006. Instead of approving applicants who applied in 2004 and 2005, USCIS approved applicants from 2006. Where is the justice in that??? Why bother publishing the cut-off date if approvals are to be randomly allocated???

    We understand we have to stand in line and wait our turn. Each applicant is assigned a priority date which chronologically determines his/her turn for approval. To further complicate matters, once the I-485 is filed, a crop of other dates are issued by the USCIS – a receipt date, a notice date and a processing date. USCIS then takes the liberty to throw random rules at us – “Case adjudication is based on receipt date” “No, we process applications based on notice date”, “Actually, it’s the processing date that determines which applications are adjusted.” !!!

    Please take a moment to consider how these conflicting statements and arbitrary decisions wreak havoc on our morale and psyches? No one, NOT even the USCIS, has a clue as to what exactly is happening in their processing centers. The USCIS has never been able to clearly state the exact number of applications languishing, excuse us, we meant pending, in their “service” centers! We, employment-based immigrants, are tax-paying, law-abiding, educated individuals contributing to America’s knowledge economy - yet we have been subjected to the worst aspects of the US employment-based immigration system. These include:

    1) Extended wait times at each step of the immigration process.
    2) Lack of transparency on the part of USCIS (re: priority date, receipt date, notice date).
    3) Lack of USCIS customer service – once applications are submitted to USCIS they disappear into a black hole. Barring a website where one nominally can check one’s case status (but which in reality remains static for months, even years!) there is no concept of updating an applicant on where his case stands. And this is despite the applicant paying immigration fees that often run into thousands of dollars over the years. We are simply expected to wait in a complete void of information, for however long it may take, until approval.
    4) Lost opportunities owing to the lack of job portability during the process (a time period spanning an average of five years, whereas an applicant from any country besides India gets his/her PR card in under two years).

    While we are grateful for the opportunity to partake in the American dream, it is ironic that we arrive in America and find that our freedom is shackled – we are bound to our sponsoring employer from the start to the end of the extremely lengthy process. Although legal immigration reform is our ongoing aim, for now, we sincerely request you to investigate the process whereby the monthly visa bulletin is set and to ensure FIFO (first in, first out) adjustment so that those of us who have been waiting longer receive attention prior to those who have applied later. We want USCIS to be accountable to us, its paying customers.

    We request you to lend us your ear and address these issues so that we are not subjected to them in the future.

    Thanking you,

    I think USCIS actions are too random . I do not think they want to see the real projections or the real demands. If they wanted to , believe me it should not have been difficult at all. Nevertheless, the first step towards that would be asking for transparency. The letter and poster campaign can do that.

    I agree!! What the few of us gathered here are trying to accomplish is to get the USCIS to FOLLOW THE RULES.

    We are SICK of the monthly visa bulletin RANDOMNESS. We are not demanding our GCs to be approved immediately. We want transparency so that we can MAKE PLANS and get on with our lives.

    WHY THE HELL can they not produce a figure for the number of pending cases in each category? They just pull figures (with a wide margin of error AND subject to correction) out of their BACKSIDES!

    I think you have to wait until you defend your thesis. My guess
