We’ve been taught that if you want to have fun in a car, you need some kind of exotic sports car with rear-wheel drive, a huge engine, and an expensively long name. I’m not convinced that’s true.


I hung out with Consumer Reports on their Talking Cars video podcast thing to make my case. To make things difficult for myself, I chose to advocate for the most invisible car on sale today, the Toyota Avalon.

Watch me scratch towards the point above, and go right here to Consumer Reports’ website to download the audio for your commute home.

Your thoughts on the question are very welcome.
