2022 Honda Civic; Which Cars of Today Will Be Future Classics? | Talking Cars #312

On this week’s episode, we talk about the redesigned 2022 Honda Civic, and share our first impressions on its driving characteristics, styling, and comfort. Ford has announced an all-new small pickup, the Maverick, and we discuss how it might fit into a market dominated by oversized vehicles. We also give a glimpse into our headlight testing at the track, and how halogen lights compare to LEDs. Other topics include why a truck’s hood height can pose a risk to pedestrians and drivers of smaller cars; proper oil change intervals for short commutes; whether a new car that sat on a dealer’s lot for months may have a risk of ‘lot rot;’ if turning off the A/C in a car saves gas; and our experts predict which modern cars will become classics in the future.
