Automobiles have had a great impact on the history of our world, and have become one of the most important symbols of individualism and personal freedom. However, they also have some problems, and have contributed to some of the negative aspects of our society such as pollution, congestion, safety, and a lack of social interaction.
Cars SAVE YOU TIME
A car helps you get from place to place quickly, without the delays of public transport. This is very useful in a busy life when time is of the essence. It saves you time on your daily commute or on shopping trips and gives you more time to spend with friends and family.
The car’s body is made of metal or fiberglass, and it is designed to crumple in a crash, thus protecting the passengers from harm. Another important part of the body is a firewall that protects the passengers in case of an engine fire.
In addition to the body, which houses the passenger compartment and offers storage space, there are many other systems in a car. These systems help the vehicle run more smoothly and safely, and can even improve the way it looks.
For example, independent front suspension enables the automobile to handle better, and a steering system allows the driver to steer the vehicle. Some of these systems also improve fuel efficiency.
A car’s engine uses chemical energy in gasoline, or electric energy from a battery. It must be able to send the energy to the wheels quickly, so that the tires can turn easily and move forward or backward. The engine’s power is measured in kilowatts or horsepower.
