Used Performance Cars for Under $20K, Mazda Miata, Kia Soul, and More! | #367
If you want performance, but you don't want to spend an arm and a leg for it, tune in for some great tips and reviews. Kicking off the show, Autotrader Executive Editor, Brian Moody, brings us a list of the best used performance cars for under $20,000, including the Ford Fiesta ST, FIAT 500 Abarth, and more! Then, automotive journalist, BJ Killeen, gushes over her test drive of the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF. This jewel of a machine has style, balance, and power enough to get you around the track, all for a very affordable price. We also chat about the Jeep Gladiator, pothole woes, and exorbitant insurance prices. Changing gears, Co-founder of Cartender and automotive journalist for CarGurus, The Boston Globe, and U.S. News and World Report, George Kennedy III, is back for round two of the electric car debate. Also, George gives us his test drive impressions for the 2019 Kia Soul (hint: it's awesome), and the versatile Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. Then, President and CEO of Brembo Brakes North America, Dan Sandberg, tells us why they've decided to launch their all new web marketplace, BrembostoreUSA.com, and what you can expect to find there. Closing the show, JoshCAR Hollywood Car Consultant, Josh Hancock, praises the Tesla Model 3 and its combination of power and handling that give it a uniquely Porsche 911 feel. Listen in for more about these amazing, inexpensive vehicles.
