This week on Car Talk, Vern from Ohio stands accused of killing his wife's sister's husband's minivan by over filling it with oil. Is he guilty? More importantly, does it even matter, since technically the guy isn't related to him. In fact, he's nothing to Vern!
Also, Nancy from Massachusetts has a nasty habit of turning into the Incredible Hulk while driving. Should her new Mini Cooper cower in fear? Plus, a close call at Car Talk Plaza provides another example of why it's good to goof off from work; a Ford Focus seemingly moves itself across a parking lot; and some much needed marital advice for Tommy... for the next time he says his wife looks like a truck! All this and lots more on this week's classic edition of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: August 21, 2010]
