This week on Car Talk, "The Male Competence/Incompetence Syndrome" - we finally have the key to understanding Tom and Ray's simultaneous brilliance and stupidity! Meanwhile, Bridget is concerned about the noise her Saturn is making, but she's downright terrified by the guys' efforts to imitate it. And Pam in Virginia has got a Volvo that's blowing more smoke than her husband. Also, Tom and Ray are called to account by Father Bryan, for naming his beloved Yugo the worst of the century. And we find out how many engineers it takes to change a lightbulb. All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
