#1513: The Good Humor Kid

Saturday, March 28 2015 06:00 PM

This week on The Best of Car Talk, Joanna's 16-year-old son is ready for his first car, and what could be better than a vintage ice cream truck, complete with a working freezer and music?! Should Joanna buy the truck, and thank her lucky stars her son didn't ask for a Viper? Or is this aging freezer on wheels one push pop away from a disaster. Elsewhere, Sarah discovered that she can't get her dome light switch to work unless she pours water on it; Bear's 100,000-mile plugs have become 200,000-mile plugs after fusing themselves to the engine block; and Juliette's timing belt may be hanging on by a thread. Also, on Stump the Chumps we find out if John cleaned up his act and his disgustingly messy car for a date. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

#1512: Lie, Lie, and Lie

Saturday, March 21 2015 06:00 PM

This week on The Best of Car Talk, John's car is a pigsty. As he prepares for a first date with a "classy woman," should he tidy it up or let her see him for the slob he truly is? Elsewhere, Barry had a numskull moment and drove his Blazer into a ditch. Now he can't understand why the engine is running better post-submersion! Also, Chooch's beloved Accord has become melodramatic; a black-light oil leak check is either too expensive or too psychedelic for Dorothea's husband; and, Tom and Ray discover a new strategy for handling difficult callers—diagnosis by intimidation. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
