Publisher's Summary

This week on Car Talk, does a clean car get better treatment from mechanics? Leif in Pennsylvania has been conducting field research, and has some expensive evidence that supports his theory.

Elsewhere, Lancelot just got home from Burning Man with a souvenir he didn't ask for-- the alkali salt dust now in every pore of his Pathfinder.

Also, Karilee's about to say, "I do", but needs help convincing her fiance to say, "I will buy you a Volvo"; Kurt's looking for a way to eek out a few more cool days from his dying air conditioner and, in honor of the Puzzler's return, we ponder the many definitions of bogosity. All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: September 17, 2011]

I should have done my research

I should have done a little research before subscribing to this show through Audible. Don't get me wrong I LOVE Car Talk. However, a quick little stroll over to their website and I quickly discovered that instead of paying Audible $13, I could have subscribed to Car Talk for free.

So, my question is, where does the money go that Audible is receiving for this? If it was being sent to Car Talk, I'd be okay with that. However, I highly doubt that. This feels a little deceptive on Audible's part.

So, Yes, subscribe to Car Talk. Just don't do it through Audible!
