#0649: My Cute Left Foot

Original Air Date: 12.09.2006

   Best Moment

On this week's Car Talk, If you're feeling the holiday blues, have no fear. We're going to help prove there's always something to be thankful for. Then, prepare your ears for Leslie's '94 Volvo, which sounds like Thanksgiving run amuck. Meanwhile, Eileen's Toyota has developed a foot fetish and won't start unless she's barefootin' it. Then, it's off to East Freakin' Lansing, Michigan where California transplants Laura and her Honda Odyssey are both suffering bad cases of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Aside from buying her a one-way plane ticket back West, can Tom and Ray do anything to help? Also, Jim's suffering from the agony of a stuck dipstick, and Dave's wife's attempts to be neighborly are scaring the living daylights out of him. Is he doomed to a life of traveling with a spare pair of pants always on hand? All that and more, this week on Car Talk.
