#168: 2019 Lexus UX; Preparing Your Vehicle for a Hurricane

With Hurricane Florence affecting much of the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic region of the US, we discuss how to prepare your vehicle for a natural disaster. We also give our first impressions of the 2019 Lexus UX, and how it stacks up against stiff competition in the compact luxury SUV segment. We also answer questions from our audience about the proper way to break-in your vehicle, whether you can use regular gas in your 'premium recommended' car, and advise a young driver about their first automotive purchase. ------------------------------------------ Have a question for our experts?
