This week on Car Talk, Cynthia's 1987 Vanagon is dying, so she needs a new ride for her three Nigerian swimming goats. After all, the goats have to get to their pool parties, right? Another family transport crisis is unfolding in San Diego, where Scott's wife wants to buy a motorcycle complete with a sidecar, to get around town with their two small kids.
Meanwhile, Kat in Seattle is about to learn an expensive lesson about why you shouldn't speed over speed bumps; and, Lisa's efforts to save money on a catalytic converter revives the adage, "It's the stingy person who spends the most."
Also, Dan is about to sell the car his son was born in, but wants to keep a memento--the front seat?!! All this, plus a new Puzzler from the Games of Chance series, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: April 28, 2012]
