Cars and Cartoons, RIP Mazda 6 and CX-3

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell kick off the show by discussing one of Jill’s  traffic pet peeves, and lamenting the discontinuation of the Mazda 6 midsize sedan and CX-3 subcompact SUV. Chicago radio personality Bill Leff joins us to talk about cartoon cars and his MeTV show “Toon In With Me.” Tom has a quiz on electric vehicles for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including test-drive reviews of the 2021 Honda Odyssey minivan and Subaru Forester Sport.
