Buying vs Leasing an Electric Car; Stuck with Large Rims & Low Profile Tires? | Talking Cars #246

Added by AutomotiveUploads

This week we cover a wide range of topics, including comparing Consumer Reports’ ratings across car categories; installing a front-facing child seat in the rear seat of a sports car; why higher-level trim cars come with larger wheels and low profile tires; how CR tests the subject aspects of a tire’s performance, and which would be a better 3-row SUV for a growing family: the Acura MDX, or Mazda CX-9.
