This week: We dig into our digital mailbag to answer a number of questions from Talking Cars audience members.

Some of the topics that we discuss:

  • Is it possible to compare vehicle ratings across categories, such as the ride of a BMW 7 Series and Honda Accord?
  • Can a parent install a child safety seat in the middle rear seating position of a sports car?
  • How does CR evaluate subjective aspects of a tire, such as handling and ride comfort?
  • Which is better, buying or leasing an electric vehicle?
  • Which car should a buyer choose to replace a Toyota Camry?
