#0507: The Dubious Knowledge of Teenagers!

Original Air Date: 02.13.2005

   Best Moment

In this week's show, consider yourself warned. The following kids are behind the wheel! Anne's son has made it his personal mission to teach tailgaters a lesson. Get off his rear, it's a tailgating call to arms! And Marli's not letting a rattly ride get in the way of her great "super-senior" year in college. Deb needs advice on driving a stick shift with a bum left toe. And we set Tim (and the record) straight about which way to turn in a snowy skid. That and more in this week's ever-annoying hour of Car Talk.
