Main themes: You’re the star of Talking Cars this week, as we devote an entire show to answering as many of your questions as time allows. The topics include:

  • Should I change the fluid in my transmission?
  • Is it time to start thinking about a trade-in after 60,000 miles?
  • I’m moving to the snow belt! What car should I buy?
  • We want a luxurious, sporty sedan. Should we buy or lease?
  • What’s the best way to learn to drive a stick shift?
Panelists: Ryan Pszczolkowski, Keith Barry, Mike Monticello
