This week on Car Talk, listener Ken Warner turns to Tom and Ray to help rescue him from an attack of Male Answer Syndrome. Find out what got him in trouble, and what lengths the guys will go to in order to protect the guilty--did we mention his name is Ken Warner? Meanwhile, out in Nevada, Sarah thinks her husband's also been stricken with MAS, in the form of a premature brake job. Plus, find out what happens when a soothing evening drive to Waikiki gets disrupted by an extended clan of cockroaches. And can freshly baked brownies help thaw a frozen bottle of wiper fluid? All this, plus a new Puzzler from the workplace, this week on Car Talk.
