"During his time as president and a member of the board of directors, Arjay’s guidance and leadership played an important role in the company’s turnaround after World War II and through the changing times of the 1960s," Bill Ford said in a statement Wednesday.
"I probably had the most influence on the international side," Miller told Automotive News in 2003. "In the early days of Ford, the overseas [administration] was separate from the U.S. It was run out of New York. It was duplication and very costly. I ... thought that we ought to get rid of the overseas staff and do everything through a single staff in Dearborn. That was really a big decision, but Henry Ford backed me up and we did that."
By their nature, CVTs are easy to despise. Their simple design has an elegance to it, but without the stepped, distinct shifts of a conventional transmission, the engine makes a beeline for its torque peak, where it drones on as speed builds. Fortunately, CVTs work better with modern turbocharged engines like the Honda 1.5T that have broad torque curves so that there’s usually adequate grunt on hand even at lower engine speeds. Honda pushes that advantage even further in the Accord’s CVT by building in virtual gear steps that produce a more natural engine note during acceleration.

When he visited the company's finance department, he was shocked to discover old-school bookkeepers tracking piles and piles of bills divided into categories: A, B, C and D. The mostly older men couldn't keep up with the bills and were simply estimating how many millions of dollars were represented per foot of paper.
The Shelby GT350 and its R-rated twin were revived by Ford in 2016, almost 50 years after retirement. They immediately transcended Mustang performance and earned a spot on our 10Best Cars list. Changes for 2017 were minimal but meaningful. Most notably, the Track package became standard on the GT350. It includes an aluminum strut-tower brace, a rear spoiler, adaptive dampers, and coolers for the engine oil, transmission, and Torsen differential. The improved cooling addresses overheating issues some GT350 owners had while driving at the racetrack. Ford also rejiggered the options and paint choices. The Technology package from the previous year became the Electronics package on the GT350; it has Sync 3 infotainment, voice-activated navigation, and a nine-speaker Sony stereo. The new Convenience package had all that, too, but swapped the standard Recaro front buckets for leather-trimmed, power-adjustable seats. The paint colors Ruby Red Metallic, Lightning Blue, and Grabber Blue replaced Deep Impact Blue and Competition Orange for 2017.
It’s not that there’s no droning sound as the Accord accelerates, but Honda has done a good job of tamping down that irritation. Yes, we prefer the conventional 10-speed automatic that Honda uses with the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, but Honda’s implementation of a CVT is among the best.
After he was named vice president for finance in January 1961, Miller once complained about the cost of operating Ford's executive dining room, where senior management paid $2 each for lunch.
The worst thing you can do when a slide occurs is to panic. If you freeze behind the wheel, then there's more chance of you having an accident, but if you keep calm, you will be able to deal with any situation that occurs. The aim is to avoid an accident, but if one is unavoidable, keeping calm will allow you to deal with the situation better and reduce its severity.
If your car starts to skid, then you are either going to experience understeer or oversteer. The former is easier to control, and is the most common type of slide, while the latter is trickier to handle, but is still manageable. Read on below to see how you can mitigate each situation.
As part of its new turnaround plan, Opel is exploring potential new markets for cars and light trucks outside of its European heartland.
What lets the little Nissan down is its 0.9-litre petrol engine, our preference remember over the 1.5 diesel and the non-turbocharged 1.0 petrol. Although at cruising speeds the engine is quiet and refined, with enough thrust to make overtaking almost effortless, there just isn't enough power at lower speeds.
