#1444: His and Her Trailers

Nov 01, 2014
This week on Car Talk, Wendy’s husband wants to rent two trailers to move their belongings across the country. That’s all well and good for his truck, but will it destroy her Accord? Elsewhere, J.D. just lost his girlfriend, and may be about to lose his beloved van, too. Can Tom and Ray help him save either one? Also, budding acupuncturist Jody wants to quiet her car by finding its chi; Jane wants to buy a stretch limo to drive around town in, but everyone thinks she’s nuts— except her grandkids, and Tommy; and how did Scott’s Ford Focus move across a Home Depot parking lot while he was shopping? All this, plus listener theories on in-car “Nasal Decloggery," and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
