About 2008_Vehicles

2008_Vehicles uses your mobile phone's screen to display detailed data on all 2008 Model Year vehicle models approved for sale in the USA -- over 1100 model variations.  Most phones manufactured in the last few years can be used (any screen size of 128x128 pixels or larger, and one that supports the download of a 150KB file).

Quickly find vehicles of interest by first selecting a 'Market-Class' (Small Cars, Family Sedans, Upscale Sedans, Luxury Sedans, Large Sedans, Hatchbacks, Coupes, Convertibles, Sports/Sporty Cars, Station Wagons, Minivans, SUVs, Pickup Trucks, or Vans).  Next select a manufacturer from the displayed list of all manufacturers for that particular type of vehicle.  A "card" then will be shown with detailed data for a qualifying vehicle variation made by your selected manufacturer.

Use your mobile's 'RIGHT' and 'LEFT' Navigation Keys to change to the detailed cards for other vehicle variations made by this manufacturer (e.g.- Manual vs Automatic Tranmission, a larger engine size, etc.).  Similarly, you can review data for other manufacturers of your desired vehicle type by using your mobile's 'UP', and 'DOWN' Navigation Keys.  Whenever you exit the program, the last display card is automatically remembered and you will be returned to that same display automatically when you next restart the program.

Each vehicle-variation's information card shows the Model Name in the yellow-band at the top of the card. The first section of details shows the transmission-type and number of gears, the engine's displacement size (always in liters), the engine's number of cylinders, the drive-wheels (FWD,RWD,4WD), and whether a Turbocharger or Supercharger is installed.  If the vehicle is subject to a "Gas-Guzzler Tax" (because of poor energy efficiency) a "GGT" box will appear; similarly, a "HEV" (Hybrid) or "FFV" (Flex-Fuel-Vehicle) box will be shown if appropriate.  The required type of fuel is also shown -- 'Reg' (Regular), 'Prm' (Premium), 'E85' (Ethanol-Blend), 'Dsl' (Diesel), or 'CNG' (Compressed Natural Gas).

The second section of details shows the EPA-size classification (Two-Seater Cars, Minicompact Sedans, Subcompact Sedans, Compact Sedans, Midsize Sedans, Large Sedans, Small Station Wagons, Midsize Station Wagons, Large Station Wagons, Minivans, SUVs, Pickup Trucks, or Vans).  In addition, the body-type (2-dr, 4-dr, Hbck) and the vehicle's Interior Space (Passenger / Luggage) information is shown, if available.

The third section of information shows the "Carbon Footprint" of this vehicle-variation (i.e.- Greenhouse Gas Emissions) and information about the vehicle's fuel economy -- what you should expect for "Ct" (City), "Hw" (Highway), and "Av" (Average) fuel consumption per distance driven.  And in the scrolling banner at the bottom of the screen the estimated annual fuel cost for operating this vehicle-variation is shown (along with the current fuel price used in the calculation).

A choice is provided on the Main Menu to allow you to change fuel prices.  Once this option is chosen, another menu will appear that allows you to select a fuel type and to modify its price appropriate to your locale.  When a vehicle information card is being shown, use your mobile's '0' Key to switch between displaying English or metric units (i.e.- "cu-ft", "mpg", etc. -- or "cu-m", "L /100-km", etc.), as you prefer.  All of these settings are also automatically retained by the program.


It is anticipated that similar products will be issued to provide data for previous year models for those considering purchasing pre-owned vehicles.   And, a new product will be issued in each future year as new data becomes available.
