#0647: Five Million Goats Are Fighting In There

Original Air Date: 11.26.2006

   Best Moment

This week on Car Talk, a listener suggests an age-old means for a wife to convince her hubby that it's time for a new car. Will Tom and Ray score a pair of grilled goat kebabs for helping Yassin with his ailing CV joints? And, in two calls, Tom and Ray remind us of the importance of rubber... thanks to Liz's brother, who put in a new engine but skipped the motor mounts, and Saul, who's puttering up and down Third Avenue in NYC on an aging set of tires. Finally, from the Department of Overwhelming Procreation, we hear the familial and automotive consequences of not subscribing to Netflix. All that and more, this week on Car Talk.

Good show.

Favorite Moment: Yassin's call from Columbus Ohio.
