Talking Cars (MP3)

With the cold season just around the corner, we share vital tips on preparing your vehicle for driving in wintry conditions, including checking and maintaining the proper tire pressure, the state of your car's battery charge, and topping off appropriate fluids. Also, we inspire a young mechanical engineering student with personal stories of how we advanced in our own automotive careers and give advice regarding future opportunities. And we welcome a special guest to the show this week, Consumer Reports' President and CEO Marta Tellado, as she shares the insights and inspiration contained in her new book, "Buyer Aware," available in stores on September 20th.
