This week on Car Talk, can Jim use an old car transmission as a potter’s wheel? Reverse could come in handy next time he mis-throws a pot. Elsewhere, Cindy’s friends say her Mercedes is scaring off prospective dates with guys whose cars aren’t as nice as hers; grad student Christine’s parents offered her a free Buick station wagon, but Christine can’t decide if the embarrassment of driving it is too costly; and we meet Tom and Ray’s new BFF—Sal, the quintessential New Yorker. Sal is a retired mailman, but he may still have to get up at the crack of dawn this winter if he wants his car to move. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

This week on The Best of Car Talk, Alan thinks his Mercedes came with a 100,000-mile, self-destruct program. It’s suffered a series of problems since the odometer rolled over and, with the Check Engine light now linked to his MasterCard account, Alan thinks it may be time to move on. Elsewhere, Fred lied to his wife about loving his friend’s new car, and was punished by receiving the same car as a birthday present. Should he ‘fess up and risk the consequences, or suffer for the next 150,000 miles? Also, do Tom and Ray have enough liability insurance to help Keri soup up her Hornet scooter so she can win a rematch against a Vespa? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.
