We share our first impressions of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, discussing its performance on our track, and how it stacks up to competitors like the Toyota Highlander, Kia Telluride, and Honda Pilot. We preview the newly announced 2023 Nissan Z, including its highly anticipated 3.0L Twin Turbo V6 engine. Chevrolet has expanded its battery recall on the Bolt EV and EUV models, and what owners should do to stay safe until a fix is available. We also share audience feedback on their "Forever" car choices; whether the rapid speed of improvements will leave current electric vehicle shoppers with outdated battery technology; if that "new car smell" is toxic (and how to get rid of it if it's not for you); the safest way to change wheel sizes on a car; and which Toyota RAV4 is the best choice for a driving enthusiast.

We also talk about the all-new for 2022 Toyota Tundra, including its highly anticipated hybrid power plant, aggressive styling, and what improvements we anticipate to arrive with the new redesign. Other topics include: which tires are best suited for improving fuel economy on EVs and hybrids; whether using the LATCH system or a seat belt is better when installing a child seat; how long can oil last in the trunk of a car before expiring; and our team shares the funny, weird, and wild stories of getting their drivers’ licenses.      ----------------------------------- Have a question for our experts?
