Talking Cars 224: Tesla's Smart Summon and Driving the Hyundai Palisade

Mike Quincy

Consumer Reports has no financial relationship with advertisers on this site.

Main theme: We discuss our experiences with Tesla’s Smart Summon technology on our Model 3. We found this self-driving feature to be glitchy and to work intermittently, without many obvious benefits for consumers.

Driven this week: 2020 Hyundai Palisade
