Main theme: You have questions, we’ve got answers. Back by popular demand, this week’s show is an all-questions episode.

The team addresses:

  • Why have car batteries become so expensive?
  • What car can possibly replace a Toyota Camry with 400,000 miles?
  • How can the car-buying experience be improved?
  • What are the downsides to using winter tires on dry pavement vs. using all-season tires in snow?
  • Does an automatic emergency braking system override the gas pedal?
  • What is a fun-to-drive, reliable car with good fuel economy and four seats for a commute on winding roads?
Panelists Keith Barry, Mike Monticello, and Jen Stockburger
