Publisher's Summary

This week on Car Talk, Penny in Oregon is feeling a bit "stroppy" over a semi-automotive linguistic matter: the correct pronunciation of "kilometer." Penny may feel better, though, when she hears the tale of woe from her fellow Oregonian Curtis, whose shifter and linkage both got mysteriously walked from his VW Vanagon.

Meanwhile, Bob in Massachusetts just bought his wife the perfect birthday present--a brand new Beetle. Alas, it doesn't come in her perfect color, so Bob's trying to figure out how make it "Mary Kay Pink"-- sans rollers.

Also, Georgia's Chevy is making a noise that sounds like either an amorous couple or Darth Vader, depending on your demographic; and, will a bigger carburetor in a '67 Plymouth Fury improve Allon's MPG from 13, to say 13.5? All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: April 30, 2011]
