This week on Car Talk, pothole season is in full swing. After her Toyota was almost swallowed by one crater, Sara's wondering what happens to the departed asphalt. Elsewhere, Steve drove over a bowling ball outside a topless bar, which sounds like a great joke set-up, but the punchline could be very expensive. Also, Shanthi is ready to buy a car, but has no place to park it. Does she need to move, or should she forget about the car and keep mooching rides from her friends? And, how can Johanna make sure her summer of teepee living doesn't start with her car getting washed away by spring flooding? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.
