Like the instrument panel, which we in Holland call the dashboard (literally)?
engine/motor,
petrol/gas,
tire/tyre,
hub cap/pizza pan,
...
Different languages often have entirely different words, if they did not loan them like our dashboard and motor. Gas is 'benzine' in Dutch, tire 'band' etc. If that's what you meant of course. Who knows? There may be real automotive pearls in foreign languages.
