Truck reliability talk on the Car Stuff Podcast


truck reliability

In another life, I am a co-host on the Consumer Guide Automotive Car Stuff Podcast, which airs Sundays on WCPT in Chicago from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. CST and then posts as a podcast following. This week, we invited Tim Esterdahl, our esteemed editor, on to talk truck reliability.

In addition to discussing overall reliability, we discussed the new series we’ve started delving into specific truck reliability issues for Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, Ram 1500 and Toyota Tacoma.

We also spent a fair bit of time discussing innovative technology popping up on new pickup trucks and whether they’re features people want or mere gimmicks. Specifically, we talked about the F-150 hybrid and some of the new features introduced on this 2021 truck.

As a part of the podcast, we also have a weekly quiz, and to honor the pickup-truck theme, it centered around (you guessed it) pickup trucks. Thankfully, I didn’t completely embarrass myself. But I’m guessing any reader of Pickup Truck + SUV Talk will likely score 5/5 — so stay tuned for the quiz and let us know how you did by tweeting @jillciminillo or commenting below.

Listen to this week’s episode below, and check out our archives for past episodes.

If you have guest or topic suggestions for future episodes, I’d love your feedback, so please feel free to comment below.
