Pediatric Heat Stroke Prevention, Car Stuff Dead Pool
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start off the show by discussing Damon’s recent drive of the new Hyundai Tucson Hybrid in the Lake Tahoe area, and then we share our “Dead Pool” picks–vehicles we think are soon to be discontinued. Brian Latouf, Chief Safety Officer at Hyundai Motor North America, joins us to talk about current automotive safety topics and fill us in on Hyundai’s Rear Occupant Alert–a system that helps prevent pediatric heat stroke by alerting drivers of children or other occupants in the vehicle’s back seat. Tom has another tricky quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including First Spin test-drive reviews of the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer and the 2022 Toyota GR 86 sports car.
The Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast is broadcast every Sunday on Chicago’s WCPT AM 820 at 1:00 PM CST.
