This week on Car Talk, David's Dodge is having trouble starting, unless he turns the key and counts to 10. Can his problems be solved by a Few Brave Electrons and a broom handle?
Meanwhile, Barbara is about to leave her accounting job and head off on a six-month road trip, and wants to do it in the least fiscally prudent vehicle possible--a VW Camper Van. Her biggest problem may be grabbing one before Tommy does.
Also, Rachel in Minnesota had a very bad windshield wiper day--one blade stopped moving, and the other flew off the car; Carly in Oakland has a Civic that's been been violently shaking for three years, and she's finally ready to address the problem; and is Kara's car doomed after she went to her local gas station and filled up-- on water? All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: June 9, 2012]
