Cars.com American-Made Index, 2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start off the show by discussing Mercedes-Benz’s reported plans to drop seven of its car models. We also share our test-drive experiences with Lexus’s new-for-2021 LC 500 Convertible. Kelsey Mays, Senior Consumer Affairs Editor at Cars.com, joins us to talk about Cars.com’s 2020 American-Made Index, a ranking of the most American-made vehicles sold in the U.S. Tom has a quiz for Damon and Jill on option prices, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a test-drive review of the Mercedes-Benz CLA250.
