(Very) Instant Impression - Chevy Volt Switches to Gas Power

Here's a very quick take on one of the most important aspects of the Volt. What happens when the car taps into the reserve gas tank? RoundAbout host Craig Cole took it for a long-distance drive and was able to record the transition. The result? Well, you'll just have to see.

RoAb #54 - The 'Huckster' Episode

After flying up to the Mitten State to test-drive the new Chevy Volt, Jefferson Ross joins us LIVE in the RoundAbout studios to record this week’s show, our 54th installment, the “Huckster” episode.  Also joining us, Mirko Reinhardt makes his second audio “appearance” on the program, Skyping-in from across the Atlantic in Germany.  We’ve got an all-around conniving lineup of stories this week ranging from those confidence tricksters at BMW building engines with defective turbochargers to a group of parking-lot attendants that actually weren’t, and made off with loads of people’s cash.  Fanning the flim-flam flames, that “builder” of luxury EVs, Fisker, launches its online vehicle configuator so you can pick all the options you want in your favorite car that will never be built.  We cover all of these topics and many more including our first-ever “Autobahn Anecdote” as well as a specially themed edition of “The Price is Correct,” the cars that Jonathan Brown would hate.  DO NOT miss out on this week’s installment of RoundAbout, #54, the “Huckster” episode.

RoAb #30 - The 'Game Changer' Episode

The group is back for this magical episode, now available at an unbelievable price: free. Isn't that great? Isn't that wonderful? In honor of the amazing iPad we bring you the 'Game Changer' episode. An aftermarket installer is the first to embed an iPad into the dash of a Toyota Tacoma despite the device's lack of 3G or GPS. Rooster Teeth sees if a real-life truck can really be driven effectively in third-person view as it would be in a video game. A fully-functional Bugatti Veyron made out of LEGOs not only drives but can retract its hard top and shift gears. All that and more, plus our Blind Spot this week asks what's more dangerous: a woman driver, an old one or perhaps both, we play another riveting round of Meet Your Roadmates, and we take calls from the RoAb Hotline!
