We Have a New Show! Own the Road with AutoTrader is Making Car Stuff Simple for Canadians

We are excited to announce our new podcast and webcast series, Own the Road with AutoTrader, which is all about making car stuff simple for Canadians.

We know that the world of cars can be confusing for a lot of people, but our experts are here to help. Own the Road will help make sense of everything car-related from demystifying the car-buying process to breaking down the latest automotive news to helping you pick which car buy next or even understanding car maintenance better. When it comes to cars, our goal is to empower you to feel more confident.

Our hosts Dan Ilika and Jodi Lai (AutoTrader's Road Test Editor and Editor in Chief, respectively) are two friends and car experts who pride themselves on being able to talk about car stuff in an approachable way that's easy to understand regardless of if you're a casual driver or a bonafide automotive enthusiast. This show is for everyone!

Each episode will be packed with useful tips and tricks, nuggets of knowledge that will help you understand the car world better, and probably our hosts roasting each other once in a while. Some episodes will have guests, most will have themes, and every episode will have our hosts answering your car questions.

If you have questions about anything car-related (or even personal questions for our hosts) please email There's no such thing as a silly question. If you have a car question, there's a high possibility that someone else will be wondering the exact same thing, so don't be embarrassed. Our hosts are here to help, regardless of how simple or complicated your car question is!
