#0837: Is the Prius a Chick Car?

Original Air Date: 09.13.2008

   Best Moment

This week on Car Talk, could tree-hugging be gender specific? New Prius owner John is worried that he may have inadvertently stepped into the wrong gender with his purchase. Are his fears warranted, and if they are, is 500 miles between fill-ups enough to allay them? Also, a novice stick-shift driver discovers the worst place in the US to practice--Lombard Street in San Francisco. Alas, we can smell her burning clutch all the way from our Fair City. And, why would a Civic develop agoraphobia and refuse to leave its own garage? All this, plus the puzzler returns with a tale from Ray's "Pig Manure" series, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
