#1346: The Cavalier That Wouldn't Die

What Chevy Cavalier?

Original Air Date: 11.16.2013

   Best Moment 1:28

This week on Car Talk, Kate is desperate to get rid of her Chevy Cavalier, but her husband has vowed to keep it running for another 150,000 miles. Can Tom and Ray help her escape, and will it involve Uncle Vinny and a book of matches? Elsewhere, Sofia swears her Civic is making noise, but her mechanic says she's suffering from an "auditory hallucination"; and, on Stump the Chumps we find out if Christo can get his car running without banging on the fuel pump. Also, should Kate take her Corolla with her when she relocates from Ohio to St. Thomas? We know two mechanics/radio hosts who are willing to volunteer to join her. All this and more, this week on Car Talk.
