Elsewhere, it's planting season on Diane's parents' farm and they'd like her husband to remove the BMW with a blown engine residing there. Also, Nirav's Wrangler's horn blared at 5 AM and now won't honk at all. Might the angry neighbor with a sledge hammer and wire cutters be responsible?

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, does anything say "I love you" more than a set of snow tires? Well, Patty thinks lots of things do and is dismayed by her boyfriend's plan to gift her a set of tires for Christmas. Will Tom and Ray take Patty's side or thank her boyfriend for the idea? Also, we hear from Suzy, who was planning to drive from Carlsbad, California all the way across Mexico in a VW Vanagon.

    Dana's Jetta jerks in 1st Gear, and Tom and Ray have a highly technical explanation. Elsewhere, Mark thinks his "straighten the curves" driving technique is more efficient and saves wear and tear. It's also driving his wife crazy, which may be another plus as far as Mark is concerned. Also, Suzy checks in with the final report on her attempted drive across Mexico in a VW Vanagon; Andy felt like he was driving naked and after confirming he was wearing pants, determined his automatic seat belt wasn't so automatic anymore.

    This week on Car Talk, Tom and Ray dip into the mailbag to answer some personal questions from listeners. To name a few: Which brother snorts? Was either one wedgied as a kid? And, has either brother ever been hauled off to jail? We're not sure why anyone wants to know this stuff, either, but fortunately there's also time for some car questions. There's Debra, who can't turn her key in the ignition until she pushes the car forward; Rane, who's worried that the engine might be about to fall out of her Isuzu; and Prashanth, whose wife is coming over from India, but may hop on the first plane back after she sees his banged up Corolla.
