#0222: Larry, Curly, and Moe-Maxima

Original Air Date: 06.01.2002

   Best Moment

Description: 
This week on Car Talk, Aron's Maxima is starting to sound like Moe from the Three Stooges. Does he have an owl under the hood or is he headed toward a catastrophic failure of the steering system? Then it's off to New York where Maggie is concerned about her 16-year old son's hand-me-down Buick. Tom and Ray remind her she's got a lot more to worry about than the car. She's got a teenage boy behind the wheel! And Gabe is looking for the perfect babe-magnet car. Is there a date in Gabe's future? All that, plus Stump the Chumps, this week on Car Talk.
