Is he perhaps too invested, given the “ex” status of their relationship? Elsewhere, high schooler Natalie’s Dad was away, so she borrowed his van, and (of course) got it dented. Can she fix it before Dad gets home, or does she need to ‘fess up, or blame it on Mom? Also, Toast’s battery drains in the rain; Julie has half a key stuck in her driver’s door; and Jonathan’s Volvo has a sagging rear end.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, finally an award Tom and Ray could achieve G.O.A.T. status in—wasting time. They’ll demonstrate their dominance by ignoring Dodie's perfectly good question about leaving her car in overdrive, and instead relentlessly pry into why only two of Dodie’s four sons chipped in to buy her the car. Elsewhere, Bob’s Cavalier has no heat, even though he’s replaced just about every piece of the system; Patricia’s Subaru is having trouble starting, which is making it even more difficult to navigate around the buffalo living in her front yard.
