This week on Car Talk, Jim loves his 1957 Morris Minor, except for one minor inconvenience--its 36 horsepower isn't enough to get it up hills, so his passengers have to get out and push. Does Jim need to keep a few Clydesdales on hand for an occasional tow?
Elsewhere, Mo had to drive her boss's Saab, and the next day it needed a few hundred dollars' worth of clutch repairs. Should she be dreading her next employee review?
Also, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Dr. Paul's life no longer resembles a Country-Western song; sisters Kathy and Jackie debate the merits of using mothballs to improve gas mileage; and could the secret to a happy marriage be two simple words: "Yes, dear"?
All this, plus a tale of a very smart car radio, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: February 9, 2013]
