Talking Cars (MP3)

This week we discuss our test results of the 2020 Nissan Versa subcompact sedan. We also share feedback from our audience about preferences for in-car navigation: do more drivers like built-in nav systems, or mobile phone apps for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, like Waze and Google Maps? And we discuss whether a vehicle's ride height can affect passenger safety, reliability differences between the Kia Telluride and Toyota Highlander, and do older airbags have an expiration date.
