#1519: Sorry, Roomie!

May 09, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, fuses keep blowing in Allison’s car. Can it be fixed-- or would investing in her local auto parts store be a better choice? Meanwhile, Nat’s Saab keeps running away from him. He needs help putting on the brakes before he looks like a fool, again, in front of his future in-laws. And Erin’s roommate has too many cars... and not enough driveway. Can she convince her roomie to sell one set of wheels, or is it time for Click and Clack to help arrange an “unfortunate accident”? All that, and a non-bogus puzzler, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
