BJ Killeen shares some knowledge about the recent accident involving an autonomous Uber vehicle, and while it was determined that human error was involved, the cities that are allowing these test cars without drivers are still a bit cautious. Alan gives his review of the Toyota Prius Prime. Next, BJ and Alan talk about the 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk that can climb almost anything. James Bell of KIA talks about the 'engineered for fun', KIA Stinger, with its rear wheel bias all-wheel drive designed for excellent performance handling. Chris Duke joins us on the show for more predictions on the release of the Dodge Demon and to tell us about the aftermarket ATV upgrades he has been doing on Motorz TV. In the second hour, we flash back to one of our favorite shows from 2017 featuring Burt Reynold's Trans Am, Josh Hancock's review of The Classic Auto Show, BJ Killeen's review of the KIA Niro Hybrid and we explore some future innovations with KBB's Karl Brauer.
