This week on Car Talk, Sonia's husband Barry may be taking his anti-distracted driving stance a little too far. He refuses to talk to Sonia while driving, even when they're in the car together. Other families in crisis: Anita needs a cure for sister-induced car sickness, and Monique's kids want to get her sister's old Miata running, after it's been sitting with a dead battery for the last 10 years.
Also, Reverend Dave thinks unholy thoughts about his stuck key; Patrice can't get her VW Bus to start, even after pouring Coke on the battery; and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Aron's car no longer sounds like Larry of the 3 Stooges snoring. All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: November 19, 2011]
