#0706: Molly the Menace

Original Air Date: 02.10.2007

   Best Moment

This week on Car Talk, it's a veritable plethora of disappearing belts, leaky tops, and ditzy drivers. First stop: Amanda, and her brakes that go grind, clunk - and then stop. One bizarre brake repair dispatched, then it's back home to Massachusetts where Sarkis has a Mercedes convertible that likes to drip fluid on the seats. Is it time for training pants, or should Sarkis bottle the stuff and start peddling hair gel? Ready for some magic? Next up is Peter, whose car is pretty good at making belts disappear. Hear if Tom and Ray can bring a halt to the unintended prestidigitation. Meanwhile, got any idea how you might inflate a tire without any of the right tools? If so, you just might be ready for Ray's new puzzler! Want to feel good about your driving? We end with Molly from DC, who's racked up her 10th - yes that's tenth - car accident. Paging Dr. Denton Fender! Should she really be eyeing that new car, or is that just good money being tossed after bad driving?

Molly has trouble with depth perception and should consider having her eyes examined. See my email sent under different cover today.
