#176 2019 Cadillac XT4; How to Deal with Pushy Car Salespeople

We just took delivery of the 2019 Cadillac XT4 at the track. We share our first impressions on the luxury subcompact, how it stacks up to others in the class, and wonder who this segment is really trying to appeal to! We also discuss recent engine recalls by Subaru and Toyota, give a not-so-teary eulogy for GM's Book car subscription service, and answer audience questions, including one about dealership business model and high pressure situations with car salespeople.   ---------------------------------------------- Have a question for our experts?
