#1018: The Bozone Layer

May 01, 2010
This week on Car Talk, we introduce a new word, courtesy of the Washington Post. It's "bozone" and it's defined as the protective layer around stupid people that keeps them that way. You'll hear bozone in full effect, as Tom and Ray try to diagnose a Ford with a saggy accelerator, a CRX that sounds like a marching band rolling down the highway, and a Jeep that stalls when you shift gears. Also, Tommy's automotive soul mate checks in, an Easter egg goes rogue in a Miata, and the Puzzler heads out to the drag strip. All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
