This week on Car Talk, John is wondering whether 'tis nobler not to spray water on his fellow drivers at the risk of increasing his new car's risk of rust--which is a poetic way of asking, should he get mud flaps installed on his new car? Elsewhere, Manny's Chevy S-10 in having trouble adjusting to its new home. Ever since he moved, it won't start after an overnight rain; and Piali's steering wheel is making noises that she thinks are scary, but her husband thinks are hilarious. Also, former Ferrari driver Steve wonders how he can adjust to a post-divorce life of driving a car with cloth seats; Connie's looking for the perfect car for a road trip from Bellingham, WA to Rio de Janiero; and when Lin's mechanic told her, "your rear end's gonna fall off"--we're pretty sure he was referring to her Explorer. At least, we hope he was referring to her Explorer. All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
