Publisher's Summary

This week on Car Talk, Tracy's husband has a brilliant (his word) approach to reducing brake wear--by stomping on them at the last possible second. Tracy thinks he's nuts and so does their dog-- he's afraid to get in the car.

Elsewhere, Red was ready to live the dream in the '75 Pontiac he bought off a front lawn. Alas, his maiden voyage was cut short when the carpet burst into flames!

Also, Wendy's Honda fogs up whenever her husband (and only her husband) rides in it; Linnea's Jetta has a squealing problem when she backs up; and could Peter's faulty cooling fan relax an entire nation, by introducing the Mandatory Meditative Minute? All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: January 12, 2013]
