What's it like to drive a dead car on Mexico's Day of the Dead, in Puebla City, Mexico? Benjamin tells the sad tale of the end-of-the-line for the Volkswagen Beetle, which marks 2019 as its final year of production. He also tours the plant where the Beetle is built and gets to go on a check-out ride right off of the line with VW test engineers. Sami laments the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV as being not quite enough of anything to feel competitive in its segment, just before the pair dive down a rabbit hole of TRD Camrys and Avalons, Jeep Gladiators, and a theoretical list of weird car names that may or may not include the word 'EarthSnake.'
