Main themes: Our podcast panel digs into a recent AAA report on the sad state of headlights on older cars and gives recommendations for what motorists can do to brighten their own nighttime driving.

Driven this week: 2019 Audi A8

Audience questions:

  • Because it’s going to be discontinued, what would be a good replacement for a Chevrolet Volt?
  • What’s the state of a nationwide charging network across the U.S., and do we have any thoughts about the upcoming Jaguar I-Pace EV?
  • Would the Subaru Outback with the 3.6-liter engine be a good family car?
