Talking Cars (MP3)

This week is an all questions episode. We discuss if electric vehicles will depreciate quicker than gas powered cars; why newer transmissions have so many gears; what makes a good retirement vehicle; the difference between all-season and all-weather tires; and our choice for the best do-it-all vehicle under $35K.
