Car Seat Mistakes, RIP Ford Flex

Episode: 1

Broadcast date: November 3, 2019

Guest: Jenni Newman,

The show kicks off with a discussion of Ford’s decision to discontinue the Flex, its boxy three-row, seven-seat crossover wagon. Next, we talk about the 2020 Toyota Avalon Limited, one of our Consumer Guide test-fleet vehicles this week. Editor-in-Chief Jenni Newman then joins us in-studio for a wide-ranging discussion on common car-seat mistakes parents make,’s 2019 Car Seat Check Honor Roll, and what new vehicles we would buy with our own money–and which “dream vehicles” we’d choose if cost was no object. Tom also poses a surprisingly tricky question for the weekly Car Stuff Power Quiz. Hosted by Tom Appel and Damon Bell.
