#1450: How to Calm an Angry Co-Host

Dec 13, 2014
This week on Car Talk, have Tom and Ray found a more productive way to settle their disagreements than, “You moron”? Find out as they differ over whether John should dump his family’s beloved Chevelle before its hyper-sensitive brakes send the family dental bills into seven figures. Elsewhere, Phil’s wife thinks she’d be less paranoid about her car breaking down if she was married to a mechanic; Dennis is looking for a non-combative gesture to let other drivers know he’s sorry for cutting them off; and after a year of listening to her Volvo moan, Alice has decided it’s finally time to figure out what’s ailing it. All this, plus some gift ideas straight from the floors of Car Talk Plaza, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
