Original Air Date: 03.11.2006

   Best Moment

Was that you? In this week’s show we hear from Rachel, who has got a smelly Saab - but no one’s ’fessing up. And later there’s more malodorous merriment - Patricia’s losing friends at work over her skunky BMW. How long will they eschew her Pepe LePew? Tony’s fed up with broken electric windows and computers in his gas tank – so what’s the perfect vehicle for a neo-Luddite? Matt’s ailing Jetta gets Ray backed into a corner, and he’s forced to agree with Tommy. Find out why, and find out plenty more, in this week’s encore hour of Car Talk.
