This week on The Best of Car Talk, it's one of our all-time classic calls, and the shaggiest of shaggy dog stories—Max the mechanic's heroic attempt to replace his customer's beloved pet dog.
Elsewhere, Major Tom's Jeep is acclimating to its new home in Colorado by doing 360's on ice; Toast’s battery drains in the rain, even if the car isn't running; and Louann's Civic is fouling plugs, and her mood.
Also, can Natalie welcome dad home from vacation by saying anything other than, "I dented your car?" All this, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: December 27, 2014]
