We must also extend a big thanks to you all: the response to our first episode was just staggeringly positive, and you've already helped see the CarAdvice.com podcast ranked #1 in the Games & Hobbies and Automotive categories on iTunes, along with #52 podcast in the entire iTunes podcasts store. We're stoked, thank you.

This week, Paul Maric and Mandy Turner are joined by Senior Editor, Mike Costello, to calmly discuss go on at length about the latest automotive news and CarAdvice reviews of the past week.

What happened in this week's episode?

Mike 'MoCo' Costello runs us through the Australian new-car market's sales figures for April, which revealed some surprising 'changing of the guard' events, including: Ford outsells Holden for the first time since '99, Hyundai becomes Australia's top passenger-car brand.

Mike also introduces us to the Holden Trailblazer. You might know it better as the Colorado 7, but no longer!

The team chats about the 2016 Federal Budget and what it means for buyers.

Paul looks at Fiat Chrysler's new driverless-vehicle partnership with tech giant Google.

The Volkswagen Amarok has picked up a big V6 diesel, making it rather unique in the current pickup market!

CarAdvice founder Alborz Fallah tells us about his drive of the BMW M2 in this year's Targa Tasmania, and talks about his ownership experience with the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Senior Editor Matt Campbell dials in talk about CarAdvice's big efficiency comparison.

Hyundai Australia communications manager Bill Thomas joins the team through technologically advanced remote connectivity (okay it's a telephone) to discuss the upcoming Hyundai N performance range, the newly revealed Elantra SR sedan, the mid-sized Genesis G70 sedan and more.

Paul looks closely at Tesla's plans for the Model 3 sedan: can it actually reach the lofty production targets it's set out?.
