Your Questions About How To Find A New Car

Jenny asks…

What does a new car really smell of and how can it be replicated?

The car deodorisers that one buys at the shops claim to have a new car smell, but they smell nothing like a new car. I believe all new cars smell alike because they use a particular glue or something. What glue / compound is it?

New Niche Finder answers:

There is no new car smell, it is an aerosol spray which is sprayed into to the car cabin during manufacture.
The Car industry likes to keep the New Car Smell myth alive because it makes the thought of buying a new car more appealing to the public.
You can buy the spray on ebay very cheaply.

How long does it take the second car to overtake the first car?

A car starts from rest and accelerates uniformly at 3.0 m/s2. A second car starts from rest 6.0 seconds later at the same point and accelerates uniformly at 5.0 m/s2. How long does it take the second car to overtake the first car?

New Niche Finder answers:

Assuming the cars are points of 0 length
First car:
s = ut + 1/2 at^2
s = (3/2)t^2
Second car:
s = u(t – 6) + 1/2a(t – 6)^2
s = (5/2)(t – 6)^2

(3/2)t^2 = (5/2)(t – 6)^2
(3/2)t^2 = (5/2)(t^2 – 12t + 36)
t^2 = (5/2)(t^2 – 12t + 36)/(3/2)
t^2 = (5/3)(t^2 – 12t + 36)
t^2 = 5/3t^2 – 20t + 60
2/3t^2 – 20t + 60 = 0
t^2 – 30t + 90 = 0
t^2 – 30t + 90 + 135 – 135 = 0
t^2 – 30t + 225 = 135
(t – 15)^2 = 135
t – 15 = sqrt(135)
t = sqrt(135) + 15
t has to be positive
t = 11.6 + 15

Time = 26.6s from the first car starting. So the second car catches up in 20.6 seconds

Steven asks…

How can I fix a car alarm to get amy car started?

I have a car with an after market car alarm. I do not know the type of alarm, as it was already installed when I got the car. The toggle switch under the dash (kill switch?) has come off leaving two wire ends. The car will not start and only the lights flash as if the alarm is active. How can I fix the problem to get the car started? I tried pig tailing the wire ends together with no luck. I welcome any suggestions.

New Niche Finder answers:

Sound like there is something wrong with the wiring. If you are not familiar with car alarm wiring, either bring it to a auto shop or get some mechanic off craigslist to come take a look

Shouldn’t be that hard to fix but it is impossible to troubleshoot for you without a picture or something that show the wiring

Maria asks…

What are some used car finding websites similar to craigslist?

im looking for a car I can buy in the thousands, and some websites sell cars for $15,245, if I could afford that, I’d just buy a brand new car. I am looking for my first car and Im paying for it myself. What are some websites where I can find cars at a reasonable price?

New Niche Finder answers:

Try looking at auto auctions. Another option is to look up used car dealerships in your area, and then visit their websites. Many times, they will have great deals on cars under $5000. Cars.com offers filters to specify how much you want to pay. You may not get a ton of results for a few thousand dollars, but you may just end up finding the perfect first car!

Good Luck!
