Talking Cars (HQ)

We share our first impressions on our very own Kia Niro Electric and discuss the growing EV market. Also, Honda has finally announced that it will begin fixing the 2017 and 2018 Honda CR-Vs with the troubled 1.5-liter turbo engines. We end with audience questions, including whether there should be regulations for headlight/brake light sensors, what to know about your advanced safety system sensors in poor driving conditions, and weighing the options when purchasing a car with no spare tire.
