This week on Car Talk, Tom and Ray try to help Mary in Minnesota sort through an ethical dilemma: Does she tell prospective buyers about her Accord's leaky water pump? Can Tom and Ray guide her to a clear conscience, or will their inner mechanics seize control?
Meanwhile, Gerry in Colorado has developed a ballet worthy of George Balanchine to get his convertible's top up and down, but he'd like to retire the act; Tina in California took a hair-raising ride down a mountain in neutral, and then got some really scary advice about it from a friend; and, on Stump the Chumps, did Tom and Ray correctly identify the source of Dave in Utah's non mother-in-law-induced truck shimmy?
All this, plus a few children's book titles that never made it past the editors, some puns we wish hadn't made it through, and lots more, on this week's encore edition of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: July 2, 2010]
