Top 10 useless car features! Gesture Control, Caring Car & Energizing Coach - CarsGuide Podcast #231

Episode 231 - 10 most overrated car features!

In this episode, James Cleary, Stephen Ottley and Stephen Corby talk all things motoring, including:

  • The 10 most overrated car features. As car tech improves there are many features improving quality of life for drivers. These are arguably not those features. The guys discuss tech added to new cars that isn't all it's hyped up to be, including: self parking, rev matching, lane keeping, drift mode, gesture control, plentiful and incessant warnings, and an entire suite of luxury car nonsense.
  • The fresh metal we've been driving this week: McLaren 765LT Spider, Nissan Titan, and Audi S3
