Welcome to the Dude Drives Cars podcast! Thanks for riding with us. On today's podcast, we'll be talking about our time spent in the 2017 Nissan Rogue. Opted with the beautiful Platinum Reserve interior package (for a mere $500!), the Rogue makes a compelling argument for itself.We've also been driving a Mazda 3 Sport in GT trim ... with a manual transmission! Yes, Virginia, you can get a well optioned hatchback with a stickshift. The 2.5-litre inline-four provided many grins, particularly in third gear at 3500rpm. Fun matters.Also on the podcast: a look back at the 2016 F1 season and the bombshell decision of newly-crowned champion Nico Rosberg to retire five days after winning the whole thing.
