Next, Sergeant Thomas Mason of the Chicago Police Department joins us to talk about the rise in carjacking thefts, and what you can do to keep yourself safe.  Tom has a “which vehicle is longer?” quiz on current-model vehicles for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a First Spin review of the refreshed-for-2021 Lincoln Nautilus midsize SUV.
