Saturday, March 08, 2014

Elsewhere, Puzzler Master Will Shortz is having trouble starting his Saab. Will Tom and Ray trade a diagnosis for the answer to 9 Down? Also, Mike may need a gregarious gullible geek to help figure out why his car is creaking; Susan's brother hit new heights of bogosity by trying to convince her she's freezing in his car because it's too efficient; and can Eric spend his summer driving the Alcan highway with his dad and sister, and remain on speaking on terms with either one? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.
