Love this programme! Used to listen every Saturday morning when I lived in America. Thank goodness for podcasts now that I am back in Europe.

Description

America's funniest auto mechanics take calls from weary car owners all over the country, and crack wise while they diagnose Dodges and dismiss Diahatsus. You don't have to know anything about cars to love this one hour weekly laugh fest.

Episode Date
#1916: Desperate Measures
3249
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Amy's brilliant husband's brain doesn't have room to process a few small details while driving, like keeping the car in his lane. Amy's screams of terror don't seem to be helping him improve, so she may need to figure out a creative (and potentially disgusting) way to convince him she needs to drive. Elsewhere, seminary student Matt's truck is leaking oil onto someone else's driveway and fixing it would cost more than the truck is worth. Also, Tom's daughter is about to take a year off college to work on an organic farm 3,000 miles away. He's wondering if her truck can handle the drive, or if she'll need to find an organic farm 2,995 miles closer; Ellen's Sable has a flatulence problem; and Kimberly's BMW is having even more trouble adjusting to living in New York City than she is. All this and more this week on The Best of Car Talk.

#1915: SUV Absolution
3264
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Carl is about to receive his Master's degree in Coastal Management and is wracked with guilt about owning two gas guzzling SUVs. Will converting emissions systems help him feel better and keep the seas at bay? Elsewhere, Brian's drive to work is quicker and more scenic than his wife's, but on washboard roads, so is he going to spend all that saved time in his mechanic's lobby waiting for a new suspension? Also, Dr. Kenny is so concerned about his Civic's brakes that he's stepping out of surgery to seek help; Debbie's mechanic found a rag stuck in the remains of her Peugeot's oil filter; and Monica's husband insists on shifting his automatic transmission into neutral at stop lights to let the transmission rest. Does his brain need a nap? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
