This week on The Best of Car Talk, Click and Clack dive headlong into relationship advice. The result? Further proof of their legendary status as relationship morons! Also, Nechama’s hood is rusted shut. Can she play dumb, go for an oil change and hope the guys at the corner station fix it for free? Marge and her dad are at odds over the safety of talking on a cell phone while refueling. Can Tom and Ray calm the familial waters? Plus, Andrew is a 15-year-old political hopeful looking for a car to impress the voters, and Paul needs a new cocktail for his car, which already has a smoking problem. All that, plus how do Tom and Ray prepare for the show? Find out, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
