This week on Car Talk, Diana has a new boyfriend, and a Stanza that's begun chewing up brake pads at an alarming rate. What are the chances these two facts are not a coincidence? Oh, maybe 100%? Elsewhere, Nan's trying to figure out how to get her new husband to share his garage with her Accord, and why the Accord won't start after it's parked in said garage. Any guesses on which question Tom and Ray might have an answer for?
Also, Bob's got an exposed airbag in his Sonata and, as a result, a family that's embarrassed to be seen in the car with him. His proposed solution? Duct tape, of course! And, did Ben make a big mistake by giving into the lure of the Jaguar Fatale? All this, plus the truth about lying in Italy, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: December 1, 2012]
