Talking Cars (MP3)

We explain why General Motor's Super Cruise, Tesla's Autopilot, Nissan's ProPILOT Assist, and Volvo's Pilot Assist are not self-driving systems, but how each can be used safely, and which ones Consumer Reports finds perform best. We also answer questions about transmissions system additives, and whether the Subaru Forester is the best choice for people with an active lifestyle.
