This week on Car Talk: What happens when GM model names come to Beijing? Let's just say the results won't be helping Buicks move off the showroom floor any time soon.
And... move over Santa Claus, Tom and Ray have a little relationship gift just in time for the holidays. When it comes to buying snow tires, should Chris listen to his dear old dad or Tom and Ray? Find out whose name Chris will curse when he's stuck in a snowdrift this winter.
On Stump the Chumps, we find out if Tom and Ray were right: was it Eileen's clutch interlock switch - or were those Manolo Blahniks really to blame?
Meanwhile, Janet wants to know if her son's complaints about his old beater are legit. If you're driving a Volvo tank, do you really need an airbag, anyway? And what to do when you and a buddy rebuild your car engine and have leftover parts? (We hear that fuel pumps and extra bolts make excellent stocking stuffers.) All that and more, this week on Car Talk.
