#1432: Pinkwater and the BMW Owner's Manual

Aug 09, 2014
This week on Car Talk, Daniel Pinkwater opened his BMW owner’s manual, and discovered it included exercise and diet tips. Is BMW being extra thoughtful or do they just want to make sure Daniel stays alive long enough to finish paying off the car? Elsewhere, Mary Lynn’s husband has been telling her to ignore her car’s scary thumping noise, so she’s hoping to get it fixed while he’s away in China. Also, Reine’s husband may have gotten his wallet flushed along with an unnecessary radiator flush; and Bob’s got a ’65 Ambassador convertible for sale, and heard there might be a radio show host in the market for one. All this and more, this week on Car Talk.
