#305 We Answer Questions About Our Recent Tesla Coverage; 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Test Results

published 4 months ago by Consumer Reports

This week, we address some of the comments posted online about our experiment to see if a Tesla would drive with no one in the driver's seat. We also share our test results of the 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, discuss the scarcity of the Kia Telluride, if owners are able to replace LED daytime running lights on their own, a smart maintenance schedule for a car driven 4 miles a day in an urban environment, and why new cars aren't as inexpensive as the Ford Model T was in the 1920s.   ----------------------------------- Have a question for our experts?
