I found Alex Dykes, aka Alex on Autos while narrowing down choices for a new car. He has incredible video reviews of virtually every car real people would consider buying and explains the car in context of how we normal people actually use a car.

I just had to have him on the show and he said yes.

During this episode Alex talks about how he got started in the  business of video car review for real people, what you should do before you buy a car, why tires really matter to noise and so much more.

Alex even shares what kind of person most cars are designed for and how you can adapt your favorite car to fit you if you are shorter like I am.

 Alex L. Dykes hails from the left coast where he and his husband combine a love of Silicon Valley technology with a passion for cars on a 9-acre organic farm. In 2011 Alex started Alex On Autos as a way to provide useful information to new car shoppers. At the time most YouTube channels were focused on entertainment and antics but Alex decided it was time for someone to talk about child seats, third row headroom and guide shoppers to find the right vehicle for them.

Alex On Autos is part of a larger corporation that Alex and his husband own that provides materials engineering and failure analysis services to Silicon Valley industries with offices in San Jose, CA.
