#1015: Adios, Amigos!

Apr 10, 2010
This week on Car Talk, don't get your hopes up-- Tom and Ray aren't being hauled off to the radio show crusher. They are, however, kicking off the show with a few interesting inscriptions from Mexican tombstones. Meanwhile, Dennis in Massachusetts will need an epitaph for his Passat's engine, after ignoring its oil warning light. Also, Rashad in Arizona may need a clerical collar to get his dealer to honor his Hyundai's warranty, Elena in Sacramento is wondering if a bouncing car is really something to worry about, and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Amy has completely lost her senses, two years into her Alaskan sojourn. All this, plus a new puzzler from the Wild, Wild West series and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
