Best Cars for Teens, Chevy Bolt Fires

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing the recently expanded recall of the Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV due to a risk of fire. Next, Jamie Page Deaton, Executive Editor of the Autos team at U.S. News and World Report, joins us to talk about the U.S. News Best Cars for Teens awards. Tom has a tricky “left or right side of the road?” quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a test-drive review of the redesigned-for-2021 BMW 4-Series coupe.
