Chris Shunk's last show, BMW Diesels, Jeep Grand Cherokee moose test, Malibu Eco dislike, smaller Nissan Z

Episode #290 of the Autoblog Podcast is here, and this week is a sad one, since it's Chris Shunk's last show before moving on from Autoblog. Chris, Dan, and Zach are joined by Autoblog editor-in-chief John Neff to chat about some of our reminisces with Mr. Shunk over his tenure, as well as bit into news topics like BMW sending more diesels, a lighter, smaller Nissan Z, the dislike heaped upon the Chevrolet Malibu Eco, and Jeep Grand Cherokee moose test dust-up. Your questions and comments power the end of the 'cast, and for those of you who hung with us live on our UStream channel, thanks for taking the time. We've embedded our Q&A module after the jump for you to scroll through and follow along, too. Thanks for listening!

      What a bummer! Been listening to the podcast since... 2007 or so. Shunk, you really turned this podcast around - I remember when it wasn't a given that there would be a podcast every week. It's been something to look forward to every week. Good luck in your next steps!

      What the what? Where's Chris going? That's definitely a shame.

      I am very fond of Autoblog podcast & have been listening every show for last 2 years/ I like Dan & Zach, but Chris Chunk was obviously a motor of the podcast. Good luck at new place!

      I wonder why he didn't mention why he was leaving. I thought he stated in the previous podcast that "all would be explained" in his final podcast, but it certainly wasn't.

      I just discovered this podcast and now they are breaking up the gang! Bummer. Thanks for turning me on to John McElroy, too. It's been a good 2 months. Et Cetera, Chris.

      Happy trails Shunk. The podcast won't be the same without you. :-(

      Dang. It's like a best friend is moving away. Will miss Shunk a lot, but Dan and Zach, we're counting on you to carry on! (Now where can you find another loud, somewhat grumpy, middle-aged guy to run herd on the podcast? Hmmm....Is Jeremy Clarkson available?)

      I will always remember Shunk as a great host and as a unit of measurement (shunk, shunk-and-a-half) Thanks for all of the great podcasts!
