Whether you drive a car, need a car, or just occasionally bum a ride with friends, you’ve come to the right place. Join the editors of Consumer Guide Automotive as they break down everything that’s going on in the auto world.

Broadcast date: October 11, 2020
Guest: Cherise Threewitt
LEGO Cars, 2021 Nissan Rogue
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by talking about Jaguar’s recent decision to discontinue its XE compact sedan and the station-wagon version of its XF midsize car, before moving on to Damon’s press-preview test drive of the redesigned-for-2021 Nissan Rogue. Freelance auto writer Cherise Threewitt joins us for a fun chat about her informative article on LEGO’s various automotive building sets, and the design processes that bring them to market. Tom has a tricky quiz on wheelbases (yes, wheelbases) for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a test-drive review of the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster.
