Key-Cloning Car Thefts, Jaguar To Become All-EV Brand

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing Jaguar’s plans to drop all of its internal-combustion vehicles and become a pure-electric brand by 2025. 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 quiz on the middle names of auto-industry luminaries for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a test-drive review of the new-for-2022 Kia Carnival minivan.
