On this week's Car Talk, Tom and Ray share a few classic stories about their recently departed pal, Vito. Ray recounts some remarkable haberdashery skills - and hear how Vito's powers of deduction made the guys outcasts at the fried chicken take-out joint.
Then, it's yoga time - at least for Rachel, whose Honda Accord won't let its clutches off the key. Will she be stuck forever in the dreaded Iwandakeyanowa pose, or could a less stressful posture be in the offing?
Meanwhile, down in Kentucky, Rich's wedding band has fallen into the abyss - the one on top of the dash, that is. Is there an easy way to extract it, or should he be digging for his credit card, instead? It's this week's Call of the Week.
Luis's busy blowing the carbon out of his wife's Mazda Miata, but Tom and Ray have a few ideas about his hard-drivin' ways. (Your secret is safe with us, Luis. Well, maybe not.)
Mara's light on the earth - but other drivers aren't so thrilled with the headlights on her '06 Prius. Can she tone them down, so not everyone thinks she's forgetting about that low-beam option?
Finally, Spencer turns Tom and Ray's job on its head. How can he break the failing transaxle before the warranty runs out? Our fearless hosts have just the solution - and it involves spring break in Miami Beach. Oh, to have such problems.
All that and more, on this week's show.
