This week on Car Talk, how do you handle a slightly anal retentive dad who insists on keeping verrrry thorough car records? If you're Rebecca, you tell Dad what you really think, and then call on Click and Clack to try to broker peace. Meanwhile, Ben's got a guilty conscience over his power steering stunt that came to a smoky conclusion; Mary Beth is stumped over how to fix a broken hood latch when you can't get the hood open; and Dale is wondering how mice stuffed his entire exhaust with corn. All this, plus a quasi-automotive Puzzler with a literary heritage, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
