Talking Cars (MP3)

This week we share our first impressions of the 2022 Kia Sorento hybrid, and discuss its driving characteristics, infotainment controls, powertrain performance, and whether the hybrid version is better than the gas-powered model. Also we talk about tire safety, and whether tread depth is a good indicator of when you need a replacement set.
