This week on Car Talk, a flock of turkeys stages a full-on assault against...a Toyota Prius. Are they anti-hybrid, or just attracted to its bright blue paint job? And, can Tom and Ray offer any Prius-protection tips to owner Maitland, other than trying to scare them off with a dish of cranberry sauce?
Also, what do these have in common: a Buick that won't shift out of Park, a Hyundai that can't climb a hill faster than 5 MPH, and a Subaru with a recurring case of Check Engine light flashing? The answers: all three have been misbehaving for a year, and all three have owners in deep denial. And, find out why a smile may be a great umbrella, but a lousy diagnostic tool. All this, plus a puzzler from the Pigskin series, and on Stump the Chumps, the return of Nunzio the Knucklescraper, this week on Car Talk.
