Nicole, Roberto and Sam discuss the cars they are driving each week and then dive into some of the big topics of the auto industry including the technology, trends and personalities.
Driving a whole bunch of stuff
The whole team has bugged out of southern California after several days of checking out what is new. Sam returned to chilly Michigan to drive the BMW M3 Competition xDrive on summer tires. Nicole landed back in New Hampshire to pick up the Lexus UX250h which has now been reclassified as an SUV-over. Robbie was… Read More »Driving a whole bunch of stuff

Don't Get A Bad Car Loan
This week, Sam is still driving a white three-row Jeep SUV, but it’s a more manageable size in the form of the new Grand Cherokee L.

Indy Goes Driverless

i found Sam listening to Leo Laporte. Always great insights
No one I’d rather listen to on cars than Sam
… that being said, 1) I get it, auto journalists don’t like Tesla and you don’t have access to their cars, but I’d so rather the features of the car actually come up like a proper review rather than the maelstrom of their vaporware FSD and whatever else Elon said yesterday. As Roberto should be able to attest as a fellow Californian, while all of that is what gets talked about, meanwhile the cars themselves are a competitive EV, offer a great point of entry into the EV world, and are bought by many regular people that don’t give two figs about the cult of personality. Appreciated Nicole’s foil on the last interview. 2) Please look into what you can regarding the errant noises, barks, clicks, glass clinks, etc. it got better for a while before Dan left but has kind of slipped back.
Love the show but whoever is typing on your latest episode was very annoying, please mute yourself. I am trying to listen to Sam speak but your keyboard & your inability to understand is very unprofessional.
