Mazda 3 and CX-30 2.5 Turbo, Traffic Pet Peeves
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start things off by continuing last episode’s discussion of their traffic pet peeves. Justin Pagtalunan, Product Communications Manager for Mazda, joins us to talk about the Mazda brand’s focus on moving upscale, as well as the new Mazda 3 and CX-30 2.5 Turbo models. Tom has a “find the fake trim level” quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a primer on buying a vehicle from CarMax and a whimsical comparison of cockroaches, Keith Richards, and the Pontiac Vibe.
