This week on Car Talk, Tom and Ray face a marital dispute with very high stakes. Melissa's husband is certain that her over-populated key ring is wreaking havoc on his Accord. If she doesn't do something about it, well, he's threatening the nuclear option: adding his mom to the household. What are the dangers of weighty key rings-- and should Melissa start making mom's bed?
Elsewhere, it's high mileage day, featuring Willis, who's already racked up 591,902 miles on his '02 Nissan Frontier. Could a fuel injection cleaning be all that stands between him and a million miles? (Sore butt notwithstanding, that is.) Also, does a 23-year-old Volvo really need a muffler? The answer could help determine one grad student's academic fate. Finally, when detonation is the best option for an aging Toyota, is it time to go new car shopping? All this, plus how *not* to break-in a new BMW, and a new puzzler straight outta the Wild, Wild West, this week on Car Talk.
