Is this Car Talk or "60 Minutes"? This week, 83-year old Lillian turns to Tom and Ray to help decipher a suspicious diagnosis from her usually trusty mechanic. Does he really want to charge her a thousand bucks to replace a valve? Has he succumbed to the beginning of boating season? You won't want to miss it, as our hosts go to the source to try to get the truth.
Meanwhile, our Physics advisor Wolfgang is on-hand to administer a (well-deserved) dope slap to the boys for their (wacko) theory on head-on collisions. Also, what do you do when your Maxima's windows go cuckoo? If you're Adam in Baltimore, blame your girlfriend!
All this, plus Tommy communes with nature and winds up paying for it in our new Puzzler, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
