2021 Nissan Rogue; Ford F-150 Lightning | Talking Cars #309

This week we discuss our test results of the 2021 Nissan Rogue, share a surprising issue our testing uncovered, and why Nissan might finally be ready to compete with rivals like Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester, and Mazda CX-5. Ford recently announced its fully electric F-150 Lightning pickup truck, and we talk about its capabilities, characteristics, and why it could signal a profound change in the truck market and culture. We also answer questions about how to deal with a car’s fluctuating reliability score, the best way to care for foggy, yellowing headlight lenses, if a used Lexus LS is a smart choice for teen drivers, and share our favorite cars we’ve ever owned.
