    This week on the Best of Car Talk, Steve is spending a lot of time helping his ex-wife Tammy navigate a trinity of car problems. 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, why are Helen's Mercedes' tires growing mold? Tom and Ray say it's because Helen drives the car infrequently, to which Helen replies, "Au contraire Piston Pusses!" Elsewhere, Linda's fiancé insists on washing his car before a long trip, to improve its gas mileage. Is he right, or just falling prey to the old "clean underwear" theory? Also, Scott's wife gave him a homework assignment—write a paper explaining why he should keep the '77 MG that's been sitting untouched in their garage for the last year.

    Car Talk, winner of a Peabody Award, is broadcast each week to NPR stations nationwide. The world's wackiest call-in show, it mixes automotive advice with wisecracks, roadside philosophy, and guffaws. No problem is too ridiculous, no solution too absurd, and before you know it, "you've wasted another perfectly good hour listening to Car Talk". Or, in this case, four.

    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.

    This week on Car Talk, a used-car salesman chooses an opportune time to turn into a consumer advocate. Meanwhile, out in Oregon, Danni could've used someone to tell her not to buy the second-hand Range Rover that called her name, in the midst of P.I.S.(that's, "Pregnancy Induced Insanity"). She's already been hit with a few thousand bucks worth of repairs and her husband can't even fit in the car.
