#1452: Max and the Schnauzer

Dec 27, 2014
This week on The Best of Car Talk, it’s one of our all-time classic calls, and the shaggiest of shaggy dog stories—Max the mechanic’s heroic attempt to replace his customer’s beloved pet dog. Elsewhere, Major Tom’s Jeep is acclimating to its new home in Colorado by doing 360’s on ice; Toast’s battery drains in the rain, even if the car isn’t running; and Louann’s Civic is fouling plugs, and her mood. Also, can Natalie welcome dad home from vacation by saying anything other than, “I dented your car?” All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

Max and the Schnauzer

Since I heard Max and the Schnauzer years ago, it's been one of my favorite calls, even if Max's time line isn't perfect.

Love Max

Max is definitely one of your funnier callers. Just one question: who ended up adopting the Max the Dog
