Talking Cars (MP3)

The market for new cars in 2022 is unlike anything that has come before; with lingering chip shortages, supply chain issues, and skyrocketing demand, dealers are selling vehicles for thousands (or more!) over sticker price, and many buyers don't know what to do. Since Consumer Reports purchases every car we test, we have felt the pain as well. In this episode, we recall our recent experiences buying cars for our test program, invite members of our audience to share their car buying stories, and give tips on what you can do to save yourself money if you're in the market for a new car right now.
