This week on Car Talk, science fiction comes to Keller, Texas, as Isuzus cease functioning when they come close to a mysterious FAA "weather device." Is GORT up to his old tricks, or is the answer a bit more down to earth? Elsewhere, Kathleen and her husband escaped a scary rollover in their Subaru. But, what's truly frightening is that Kathleen's husband is still intent on driving it. Also, a Land Rover needs either a new transmission or two in the hat; a clutch job goes bad in New Jersey; and a husband turns to science to explain why his wife shouldn't listen to Car Talk. All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
