#0739: Car Talk Vs. Nocturnal Flatulence

Original Air Date: 09.29.2007

   Best Moment

This week, Tom and Ray help save a family road trip - nowhere near the highway, or the car. Also, a challenger to the "duct tape solution" for cheapest repair technique: would you believe, a Dixie Cup? A donkey takes up residence in a Saturn, and fixing it may be a job for the Man in the Velcro Suit. Later, Tom and Ray muddle their way through a couple of insurance conundrums, and get a little help from someone who actually knows what they're talking about. In our 3rd half, 85-year old Rosalie loves the PT Cruiser she got from her 93 year-old boy toy, Floyd - but, she's not crazy about its teenaged MPG. And, can a 24-year old adjust to a Buick Century without heading straight to Geezerville? All this, a new Puzzler and more, on this week's Car Talk.
