This week on Car Talk, Tara in Palo Alto wonders if she's met Mr. Right. He's good looking, he goes to medical school, he eats without too much grunting--and he lives in his 1986 VW Vanagon. Which is where Tom and Ray come in. Is his choice of domicile reason for Tara to lace up her sneakers and run, or just one more point in his favor?
Also this week, a mysterious clutch malady at 2,000 feet, another victim of the "essential fuel line flush" pitch comes forward, and one sure way to get a mechanic to do a favor for you--actually, it's a dozen ways, but they're all glazed or jelly-filled. All this, plus a new puzzler from Ray's Grand Theft Auto series, an instant game of Stump the Chumps, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
