This week on The Best of Car Talk, can Bill learn how to drive stick in time to drive his date to the homecoming dance? Given that his other driving options are a minivan and a station wagon, we certainly hope so.
Elsewhere, Heather wants to drive her Subaru from Seattle to Maine to visit her parents, but the car may not make it past Minnesota. Can Tom and Ray help facilitate this family reunion?
Then, did Abby damage her transmission by backing down a steep driveway in Drive, or is she suffering from Tom's diagnosis of "Female Guilt Syndrome"? And, do you have what it takes to be crowned Philosopher King? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: October 17, 2015]
