Paul Strauss, Publisher, Awesomer Media

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell kick off the show by discussing the passing of dune-buggy pioneer Bruce Meyers and the results of J.D. Power's most recent vehicle-reliability survey. Paul Strauss, publisher of the popular websites The Awesomer, Technabob, and the auto-themed 95octane, joins us to talk about the latest batch of brawny V8-powered vehicles--the Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance, Land Rover Defender V8, and Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392.  We also discuss the effect Tiger Woods' recent crash in a Genesis GV80 might have on the Genesis brand. Tom has a quiz on vehicle model-name origins for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog--including a First Spin review of the redesigned-for-2021 Buick Envision compact SUV.
