This week on Car Talk, could anything possibly go wrong when you take a cross-country road trip with your beloved fiance and dear old mom? Well, meet Charity - and let's just say that car trouble was the least of her problems! Then, it's off to Oregon, where Jackie is wondering if her bra can withstand the car wash (shrinkage, anyone?!). Meanwhile, Tami's neighbors are wondering if her Buick has gas... and we're not talking 93 octane, if you catch our drift. And in Minnesota, Peter wants to know how to lure a hamster out of his wife's Acura. Maybe a four-course meal? All that, plus a new puzzler from Ray's Ceiling Lights Series, on this week's electrifying hour of Car Talk.
