JD Power Initial Quality Rankings, 2020 Cadillac XT6 Road Trip

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing JD Power’s recently announced results of its Initial Quality Study, as well as Mitsubishi’s plans to scale back its presence in “megamarkets” including the United States. Larry Nutson, Executive Producer and Chicago Bureau Chief at The Auto Channel, joins us to talk about his summer road trip in the 2020 Cadillac XT6 Sport. Tom has another quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a road-test review of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.
