I discovered this podcast while watching Sam on the Tech Guy podcast. The content is mainly reviews of all types of automobiles and insights on the actual driving of automobiles. I really like when they talk about how the vehicles handle daily use such as driving in different weather conditions or hauling more people than just the drivers. Since I’m a tech nerd I also enjoy it when they dive into the tech features of a vehicle. All the hosts bring in good perspectives based on their driving habits and backgrounds. I really recommend checking it out and keep up the good work Sam, Rebecca and Dan.

Podcast cover

This week’s garage includes the gamut of rides from mainstream compacts to luxury sedans and even a $100,000 Mustang. Rebecca had the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid which is a great family hauler and the big Genesis G90 sedan. Sam meanwhile had the new Toyota Corolla XSE which is finally more than basic transportation and the Hyundai Elantra GT N-Line. He also did a first drive in the new Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang. Dan had to get by with a Volkswagen Golf SE. In topics, after failing to work out a deal with Renault, Fiat Chrysler is hooking up with PSA, and Mini prices the new Cooper SE EV surprisingly reasonably.
