This week on Car Talk, another voice rises in defense of the much-maligned Yugo, with a novel argument that's hard to counter: How many other cars could you protect by garaging in your living room? Then it's off to Rochester, where Jeannie is getting a very sweet and very expensive smell of maple syrup in her Lexus, and to Maryland, where Kristopher's girlfriend refuses to turn on the heat in her Golf, thanks to some misguided advice from dear old Dad. Also, an innocently dinged door raises a question of parking ethics for Eric in Minnesota, and, on Stump the Chumps, did Gaelen's dad take the fall for his sputtering Audi? All that, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
