An article this week on Tech Crunch from Sarah Buhr tells us the following: “Maven, a car share company from General Motors, is cruising its way into San Francisco today. The proclamation made recently is one part of a further roll-out in several cities throughout the U.S., which began at the beginning of this year. A city-based car share service known as Maven City is currently available in (9) cities in the nation, along with Lyft’s new rental program Lyft Express Drive, which recently rolled out. GM has been associated with Lyft and added a $500M in funding. The major car maker supposedly was in discussions to purchase the rideshare company. Maven claims to have over 10,000 members & Lyft drivers have used Express Drive thus far, traveling millions of miles between them.

There are many ways to travel in SF, which include Bay – Lyft, Uber, MUNI and taxi service. Maven will also be in competition with older, established car-sharing outfits. Getaround has been in operation since 2009 and Zipcar — which was purchased by Avis — started in the year 2000. Maven rolled out a 1-way rental service for drivers to pick up a car in one spot and drive it to another without having to return it. But Zipcar has also been doing the same for a while. One of the mini vehicles they use is pictured here.

Maven thinks it will stand out in S.F among the tech crowd, using newer cars with technology that is fully connected car sharing bringing members to where they want to go. Maven uses a phone app to unlock& enter the vehicle. Maven is using GM cars and can thus offer sophisticated integrations with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, OnStar and more. Maven costs about $8/hr to rent any of its vehicles.” The full story is available here.

Apparently the US government is playing “watchdog” on the auto lending industry lately. In the July 11, 2016 edition of the WSJ, Andrew Ackerman posted a story titled ‘U.S. Regulator Flags Auto-Lending Risks’ with the following details: “A U.S. banking representative warned about growing credit risk in the automobile-lending sector, raising the possibility of fresh regulatory pressure in the area. The Office of the Comptroller, which oversees large national banks which includes many of the biggest banking firms in the U.S., highlighted the risks in its bi-annual report.

The OCC said auto-lending risk is heightening “because of notable & unprecedented growth across all types of lenders. As banks have fought for market share, some banks have gone with less stringent underwriting standards, the report said. The report indicated the role of indirect auto lending, in which banks offer cash to auto dealerships, who in turn lend to consumers. The report said indirect lending reflects “an area of significant fair lending risk” amid fast growth. Comptroller of the Currency, Mr. Thomas Curry had raised the red flag once before about auto lending, making an analogy between it and the mortgage crisis.

Automotive lending has spiked in recent years with historically lower interest rates, inexpensive gas and stronger consumer demand. Auto loans even performed pretty well during the financial crisis, which market observers have viewed as a sign that the loans are safe because even low income households must pay for transportation. Auto lenders also have an easier time obtaining collateral on a past due auto loan—by repossessing the vehicle—than they do foreclosing on a house covered by a failing mortgage.” The complete article is available at this link.

In a July 8, 2016 article by Mónica Ortiz Uribe on Fronteras titled ‘America’s Auto Rejects Are Revived And Resold In Mexico’ we learned the following: “Mexico is making it harder to import old cars from the U.S., angering many that handle imports at the border who specialize in the refurbishing and resale of America’s 4-wheeled rejects. Recently, a sorry parade of damaged up cars sat bumper to bumper near a remote border crossing outside El Paso, TX. Many of them were lined up farther than the eye could see. Some had broken windshields and headlights, while others had dents on the hoods held shut by bungie cords. All were waiting near the border to cross into Mexico. He and other importers said Mexican customs agents abruptly reduced their hours and the number of cars they let through beginning in mid-June. This move has slowed an entire economic sector that’s long thrived. In the last 10 years Mexico received more than 7M used cars from the U.S.

The line of these clunkers at ports of entry in CA and TX has sparked chaos. Last month in Ciudad Juárez an angry group of importers blocked some commercial traffic coming into Mexico for a few hours. At a border crossing south of San Diego, the Tijuana Chamber counted as many as 4,000K waiting to enter. Eloisa Talavera, a Congresswoman the Mexican customs agency says the agency was tracking down on illegal imports— cars with values that are intentionally underestimated to avoid taxes or cars with fake emissions reports.

The Fronteras Desk contacted Mexican customs several times but didn’t get a response regarding why the agency had limited its hours and number of imports at the border, a move that’s negatively affected those who do business legally. Importers think customs is caving into pressure from the Mexican domestic auto manufacturing industry. In Mexico, new car sales are falling behind used car sales. While new car sales volume has remained relatively slow in Mexico over the last decade, auto manufacturing production has heightened in recent years. Today, Mexico is the area’s top auto exporter. Almost every significant brand has a factory there, such as Ford, Nissan and BMW. In the last (5) years Mexico exported 14M cars, mostly to the U.S. Eduardo Solis, president of Mexico’s Auto Manufacturer’s Association, says they are pressuring Mexican authorities to go after illegal car imports.

Solis says that too much trash from the U.S. ends up on our streets; if a car isn’t fit to be driven in the U.S., it shouldn’t be allowed on Mexico’s either. At a neighborhood body shop in Juárez, a worker repainted an imported Chevy Silverado. Other cars in the shop still had US registration stickers. Juan Flores, 2nd generation salesman, has been selling U.S. imports for many years. He says they make car ownership a reality for lower-wage Mexicans who don’t have access to lenders. Like other import salesman, Flores is paid for these cars in U.S. dollars, and right now the Mexican peso is weak.” The full article is here: http://www.fronterasdesk.org/content/10360/americas-auto-rejects-are-revived-and-resold-mexico

In the June 3, 2016 edition of WFYI Indianapolis an article titled ‘Marion County Mosquito Control’s Tire Recycling Day Is June 11’ was posted as follows: “The Marion County Department of Public Health has a Mosquito Control program, which encourages people to scrap unused tires amid a Tire Recycle Day on Saturday, 06/11 from 8 am to 4 pm. One of the simplest means to curb the mosquito population is to minimize regions of standing water where mosquitos tend to breed. Abandoned vehicle tires can gather water and become a place for mosquitoes to lay eggs. In partnership with Meineke Car Care, this tire recycling event collects used vehicle tires from Marion County residents at zero cost.  They will accept a maximum of (6) tires each. This event is for individuals and not for use by tire-related retailers or auto scrap yards. All picked up tires will be properly recycled.

Matt Sinsko, coordinator of the MCDPH Mosquito Control program says that this is one significant means for people to become involved in making their neighborhoods healthier places. In addition to the reduction of clutter, getting rid of old tires helps to control the possible spread of West Nile virus and other mosquito-based diseases.” The complete article is here: http://www.wfyi.org/news/articles/marion-county-mosquito-controls-tire-recycling-day-is-june-11

On June 1, 2016 an article titled ‘Abandoned vehicles litter roadways’ by Nancy Cook was posted on West Hawaii Today with the following information: “Abandoned vehicles dumped on the sides of Mamalahoa Hwy & elsewhere across the island are slowly disappearing, thanks to a new contract signed by Hawaii County. The news is a huge relief to Shirlee Shumway, who for six months has noticed many cars beginning to appear on the roadside. The county began tagging the abandoned vehicles, then removing them. Individuals were stripping the valuable components from the cars at night. According to Shumway, one car, covered in a silver tarp, had been on the Mamalahoa Highway, for 10 months. The car had no engine and wasn’t parked on private property–the tarp was old & held in place by lava rocks.

A decrease in scrap metal prices & the loss of markets in China over the past year contributed to a drop in county recycling efforts. But county Environmental Director Bobby Jean Todd says the new contracts with haulers are moving the cars off the roadside & onto county property. The cars collected by a contracted junk hauler are sold at auctions or they’re held at the county’s (2) car yards to be sent off for recycling. Haulers receive between $58 and $75 per car, plus $4.50 to $7.50 a mile to transport the abandoned vehicles. On public roadways, junk automobiles may be removed by calling the Hawaii PD.” The full article can be viewed at this link http://westhawaiitoday.com/news/local-news/abandoned-vehicles-litter-roadways

An article in the March 9, 2016 edition of Recycling Today titled ‘US aluminum producers ask for action on China’ told us the following: “A trade union and a US-based aluminum producer are asking the government to investigate the level of government subsidization of in Chinese aluminum production. The group making the request says China’s aluminum has been pouring into the U.S. for over a year. A March 9 article in the Wall Street Journal says the United Steelworkers union (USW) and IL-based Century Aluminum Company also sent researchers to China last year to investigate evidence of government subsidies for aluminum makers there. The USW & Century Aluminum say they expect that evidence showing the Chinese government has been providing billions in subsidies to aluminum companies, including low-interest loans.

The Arlington, VA-based Aluminum Association has been issuing releases and comments making similar allegations. As the economy of China has begun to slow, and less of its metal is being used domestically, there is a severe oversupply of China-produced metal. This is driving an increase of imported their aluminum into the US. According to the Aluminum Association’s data, U.S. imports of aluminum products from China grew 181% between 2012 and 2015. The Journal article states the value of total aluminum exports from China as having risen from $6.2B in 2006 to $23.8B in 2015. Any findings confirmed by the U.S. government would likely be forwarded to the World Trade Organization (WTO) to seek remedies. A Chinese embassy spokesperson said that WTO member nations, including China, should strictly abide by the rules, and use trade remedy measures in a prudent, restrained compliant way.

Despite a booming US auto industry & the stable construction sector, primary US aluminum production declined 7.2% in 2015 compared to the year before. The Wall Street Journal says aluminum production in China has gained 31% in 2015. However, North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) partner Canada was a larger factor in U.S. aluminum import markets in 2015. With the weak Canadian dollar, operators of smelters in Canada sent more than 2.8M tons of aluminum into the U.S. in 2015—over seven times the volume from China.” The full story is available here.
