Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana, Nissan Switch
Feb 21, 2020 Season 1 Episode 17
Larry Nutson, Executive Producer and Chicago Bureau Chief at The Auto Channel

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing Nissan's tentative entry into the vehicle-subscription marketplace via its Nissan Switch pilot program in Houston, Texas. Next, we talk about our test-drive experiences with the redesigned-for-2020 Ford Escape compact crossover SUV. Larry Nutson, Executive Producer and Chicago Bureau Chief at The Auto Channel, joins us in-studio to talk about  the Toyota Motor Manufacturing assembly plant in Princeton, Indiana, and the enormous economic impact it has on its surrounding community. Tom has a fake-model-name quiz, Jill has a giggling fit (Urban Sensual?), and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog--including Tom's article on America's last manual-transmission vehicles. The crew wraps things up by discussing whether or not we would personally subscribe to a vehicle-subscription service.
