Podcast: Subaru Outback, Buying a Car Virtually

Podcast: Subaru Outback, Buying a Car Virtually

Another week, another out-of-studio session for the Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast. But hey, I showered this week, so bonus.

The majority of the program was devoted to buying a car during COVID-19. Is it even possible? It is, actually. Joe Wiesenfelder from Cars.com joined us for our middle segment and discussed how dealers are doing virtual consults as well as doing at-home delivery and, in some cases, at-home test drives.

We also talked about if there are any deals to be had right now. According to an article on The Car Connection, there are. But as Wiesenfelder pointed out, you have to qualify.

This week’s #cardujour is the Subaru Outback, and we wax poetic about the Cinnamon Brown Pearl paint and how comfortable it is.

While I will continue to post the podcast to my blog each week, you can subscribe to the Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast on any podcast subscription service or visit the Buzzsprout link. New episodes are usually posted on Friday, and then the show itself airs on WCPT 820 AM on Sundays from 1 to 2 p.m.

Be sure to let us know if you have questions or if there are any topics you’d like us to cover on future podcasts.

  • I can report that Dunkin has doughnuts at the drive thru window, but they are $1.15 each, if that is the issue.

  • In reply to jack:

    Hmmmm. I actually have a Dunkin across the the street from my apartment. It's attached to a gas station, no drive-thru. Wonder if they're doing carry-out. I may have to explore for the next recording ...

  • In reply to Jill Ciminillo:

    Convenience stores attached to gas stations are essential and open, just that you can't sit down.
