Men don’t use change.

Call 1

Rebecca Tomassini (Hinsdale, Massachusetts) - 1993 Volvo 940

Safety. She was in a 30 mph rear-end accident and the car was totaled. She thought this wasn't supposed to happen to Volvos.

Call 2

Tony Beeda (Charlottesville, Virginia) - 1992 Mercury Sable

Brakes. The car shimmies. He had the rotors fixed and now the e-brake light comes on when he's going up a hill.

Call 3

Anita Campbell (Dallas, Texas)

Has a 1965 Nash Rambler... do Tom and Ray want to buy it?

Call 4

Francois Aubuse-DeMontacayne (Washington, District Of Columbia) - 1976 Mercedes-Benz 190

Buying. This heap is too big and too slow. Looking for a smaller dependable replacement with some pep.

Call 5

Cliff Cannon (Portland, Oregon) - 1991 Jeep Wrangler

Transmission. The gears are grinding and when you do get into gear it sounds like the tranny is full of sand.

Call 6

Carey (Bloomington, Indiana) - 1991 Toyota Camry

Transmission. The car 'clicks' between lower gear shifts and also appears sometimes during deceleration. The dealer doesn't hear it.

Call 7

Daniel Pinkwater (White Plains, New York)

Daniel has a car dealer story relating to his gifted girth.
