Talking Cars (MP3)

This week we discuss Ford's new rewards program, and whether or not such programs really benefit car owners. At the track, we've rented the new Honda Passport, and give our thoughts on how it stacks up among the multitudes of SUVs. As always, we wrap with audience questions, including one about how manufacturer’s all-wheel drive systems differ.
