Publisher's Summary

This week on Car Talk, a million dollar idea from one of our listeners: an NPR-themed restaurant. The only problem is, the menu is a bit limited--to two items. In matters automotive, Renee in New York got two nasty surprises recently. Her Acura wouldn't start, and when she opened the hood, she was greeted by the leftovers from an engine picnic, including chicken bones, coldcuts, and a bag of Doritos.

Meanwhile, Fran's got a brilliant idea for changing his oil and killing his engine at the same time, and Foreign Service Officer Joan is wondering how many trunks of spare car parts she needs to bring to her next assignment in Madagascar. Also, how to get revenge on a soon to be ex-husband who's planted a GPS unit in your car. All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: August 13, 2011]

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Click & Clack, as always, are in fine form in this episode!

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Well, it's a radio show... so there is not much of an ending... but it's funny all the way through! :)
