Talking Cars (MP3)

This week, we discuss the Road Test results of our 2019 Cadillac XT4, and the nuances of competing in the entry-level luxury SUV segment. Volvo announced that it will be limiting the maximum speed on its vehicles, and we talk about the decision’s impact on safety. As always, we wrap the episode with audience questions, this week about proper steering wheel position, used car maintenance practices, and the evolution (or lack thereof) of car door hinges.
