#1549: When the Red Red Robin Comes Pecking at My Car

Dec 05, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Heidi’s Lincoln is under assault from a local bird that’s itching for a fight, with its own reflection! Can Heidi save her car without ending up on the Audubon Society’s Most Wanted list? Elsewhere, Shawn needs help with two annoying noises. One is coming from his Caravan, and the other is his wife laughing at him. Also, Janet and her small-town neighbors can’t decide whether they should keep their cars running during their roadside chats; Steve’s truck is bouncing its way down the highway; and glass artist Dara may have to make a couple of Click and Clack dashboard figurines if she wants help quieting her Subaru. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
