This week on Car Talk, where's Mr. Gigi when we need him? Teresa in Yakima needs to find a way to dry her hair during her morning commute, without becoming a case study in Distracted Driving 101. Find out if Tom and Ray are up to this auto-follicular challenge. Meanwhile, Adam in Oregon is about to discover the high cost of ignoring a balky transmission and a blinking Check Engine light: an expensive repair bill, and ridicule in front of a national radio audience. Also, a pending engine rebuild tests Stratus owner Ravi's love for his car, and down in Alabama, Jane isn't crying over spilled milk, but she is rather upset about the spilled cream that stunk up her husband's BMW. All this plus a puzzler from Our Fair City, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
