Warren Brown and Lou Ann Hammond chat about cars on www.washingtonpost.com August 24, 2012

Thank you to Honda and United Airlines for getting me home in time to do this chat. It was touch and go.

I’ve driven the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2013 Honda Accord (and the PHEV) version. Both are under embargo, but I will tell you that if you are thinking of buying either, wait for the new one. If you want to know more about the 2013 Honda Accord you can see a picture of it in yesterdays Wall Street Journal. 🙂

Ram (not Dodge, Ram is their own brand now) has released the price for a 2013 Ram 1500.
