This week on Car Talk, John thinks his employee Steve is a great guy. However, Steve may have destroyed the clutch on the company truck, after only a few hours of driving. Enter Tom and Ray, prepared to stage a driving intervention with Steve, and maybe handle his employee performance review at the same time. Elsewhere, Faith just relocated from Maine to Alaska because she was longing for snow. Her Subaru seems displeased with the move, though, as it's begun making an alarming noise. Also, Susan swears that changing gears on her Saturn is like shifting through a bowl of Cream of Wheat, but her boyfriend swears she's crazy; and, speaking crazy, would you drive across country in a Ford Focus, with a boyfriend, three dogs, and two cats? Shelly's planning on trying, unless Tom and Ray can come up with a better plan--and there may only be a million or so better plans. All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
