This week on Car Talk Suzi bought a Porsche 911, partly to help her bond with her male colleagues. Unfortunately, she can't answer any of their questions about the car, and things are getting awkward around the water cooler. Can Tom and Ray give Suzi a quick Porsche 101 seminar, or are they even more clueless than she is?
Earlier, our favorite brat, Melissa Peterson returns to remind Tom and Ray she still hates them... but as long as they're all on the phone together, would they mind helping convince her mother that her new scooter is safe?
Andy's Infiniti's active suspension has become a bit hyper-active; Larry took his car for an oil change and almost got taken for new axles; and, in a follow-up from last week, Kirsten returns to tell us how the government plans to treat her beloved CRX while she's in Kosovo for two years. All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: August 17, 2013]
