This week on The Best of Car Talk, Kim's husband couldn't resist buying a Lexus that had been sitting in an airport parking lot for four years. Kim thinks the car was used for nefarious deeds, and is plagued by bad vibes. But Kim's own purchase may make her husband's look sane by comparison.
Meanwhile, another martial dispute is brewing in Alaska, where Samantha and her husband can't agree on the best place to hang dry cleaning. Can Tom and Ray referee his one, without knowing exactly what dry cleaning is, anyway?
Also, Stephan's solution to his Golf's rough running was either brilliant or wacko; Jessica's power-steering pump made a 90-degree turn; and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if John's wife made it from Buffalo to San Diego in her Cabriolet, in less than six months. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: January 2, 2016]
