This week on Car Talk, can Patty in Virginia keep her mechanic working on her car, without his unsolicited attempts to work on her? Is there a delicate way to let him know she's not interested, without her car becoming a casualty of his broken heart?
Also, Tom and Ray try to adjudicate two raging debates. First, what's the right combination of interior and exterior car colors to avoid a fried tucchus, and second, what's the best driving strategy to navigate a road full of frogs. And, what better way to begin (and end) a relationship than by rear-ending your new boyfriend? All this and lots more on this week's classic edition of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: September 4, 2010]
