2022 Nissan Pathfinder; Driving Tips to Improve Fuel Economy | Talking Cars #311

This week we share our first impressions of the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder, and discuss whether its driving dynamics and redesigned interior give it an edge in the competitive midsized three-row SUV segment. Fuel prices are going up nationwide, so we share some tips on how to maximize your car’s fuel economy. Other topics include whether switching between premium and regular fuel may damage a car’s engine, should Tesla disabling advanced safety features in some of its vehicles keep drivers from purchasing a Model 3 or Model Y, how to properly charge an electric vehicle to optimize its battery life, and we feature responses we received from our audience about their favorite cars they wish they still owned.
