Talking Cars (HQ)

This week we share our test results of the 2020 Lincoln Corsair. We discuss the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the electric vehicle market, and whether or not it is the right time to buy an EV or a hybrid. Also we answer audience questions including whether window tint potentially reduces the heating effect of sunlight, could the summer's high heat kill off the COVID-19 virus in your vehicle, and if a Ford Fusion is a smart choice in terms of long term reliability and ride comfort.
