Buying a Car During COVID-19, Discontinued Honda Models

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start off the show by discussing Honda’s discontinuation of its Fit subcompact hatchback, Civic coupe, and the manual transmission in the Accord. We also share our test-drive experiences with the “last of a breed” 2020 Volkswagen Golf TSI. Bill Haggerty, Chairman of the Chicago Auto Show, joins us to talk about buying a car in the COVID-19 era, and why now is a good time to take your vehicle in for any necessary recall repairs. Tom has a quiz for Damon and Jill on “short-timer” vehicles, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a walk-around gallery of the redesigned 2021 Nissan Rogue.
