On this week's episode of CarAdvice, Trent Nikolic and Paul Maric look at the impact of autonomous tech on driver attentiveness, Mazda's tough times, and news that will see recall-resistant drivers kept off the road.
First up: A new study has shown that Tesla's Autopilot driving system can reduce a driver's reaction time in the event of an incident.
Mazda has reported a $27 million loss for the second quarter of 2018, caused partly by flooding in its homeland of Japan.
Finally, Queensland has announced it will issue defect notices to owners of vehicles affected by faulty Takata-made airbag inflators, if they don't respond to recall notices.
Catch part two of our interview with Holden's chief designer, Richard Ferlazzo! Also, Paul and Trent talk viewers through their highlights of the recent SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) car show in Las Vegas. The SEMA Show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world.
