In this question and answer video, http://www.AaronOnAutos.com answers a fan question about used car warranties and extended warranties. The answer isn’t simple, but I try to cover the reality of things.
Here I talk about my friend Jimmy Dinsmore’s book Mustang by Design, which includes not just the story of the Ford Mustang pony car, but also one of the chief designers behind it: Gale Halderman. Halderman worked in Ford’s design department for his entire career as a vehicle designer and the Mustang is one of his most iconic and well-loved works.

Automation, specifically automated driving, will be coming to the trucking industry. But it won’t happen as fast as some might believe and it won’t put millions of truck drivers out of work. A new study shows the more realistic, likely impact. I discuss that plus my own thoughts on automation and trucking and why it’s both inevitable and not really that big of a deal.
