#0532: When Your Husband Is a Cheapskate!

Original Air Date: 08.06.2005

   Best Moment

On this week’s encore show, war stories from the gender battlefront. Heidi’s husband gets an earful from Tom and Ray on his answering machine. If Heidi wanted to make peace with Boris and his jalopy, maybe she shouldn’t have called Car Talk? One guy's fight for garage space… and its surprise outcome. Tim can never find his little Beemer buried in a forest of SUVs. Do they make vehicle homing beacons? And Jason’s pickup doesn’t always start, but he’s determined to go out and fire it up while Tom and Ray wait … and wait. Jason? You there? That and more in this hour of Car Talk.
