Have you ever wondered how the current financial climate is affecting the automotive industry? Sit down with us and our special guest, Jim Sharifi from US News and World Report, as we navigate the landscape of car deals this Labor Day weekend. From the looming UAW strike to the car shortage crisis, we break down the elements influencing these market dynamics while highlighting the best incentives for car shoppers.

Ever had a bout of 'range anxiety' when considering an electric vehicle (EV)? We've got you covered as we shift gears to the realm of EVs. Jim lends his expertise about the EV market, providing insights into the inventories at Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, and Mercedes Benz. We also tackle the need for a more robust charging infrastructure and the convenience of Tesla-style chargers. Not to mention, we delve into the world of plug-in hybrids, emphasizing the importance of regularly circulating fuel in PHEVs and the advantages they offer for commuters.

Finally, we dissect the flurry of recent automotive news headlines. Fascinated by the $55 million deal between Hyundai and Georgia Institute of Technology? Curious about the data breach at Tesla? We discuss these and more, including the discontinuation of Kia Rio, legal challenges facing Kia and Hyundai, and the startling fact that you can build 99 Priuses with the same amount of lithium needed for one Tesla. Don't miss out on our lively car talk show, live each Saturday morning from 8 to 11am Central.
