#1501: Le Crouching Tiger

Jan 03, 2015
This week on the Best of Car Talk, “60 Minutes” host Morley Safer turns the hot lights on Tom and Ray. Allegations of financial malfeasance? A class-action suit over bogus Puzzlers? No, Morley’s just annoyed that he can’t find parts for his beloved Peugeot, aka, the “Crouching Tiger” in his garage, and he blames Tom and Ray’s relentless Peugeot bashing. Elsewhere, Jane is convinced her van’s gas tank is shrinking; Peter killed his Accord’s battery but can’t understand why the alarm is still sounding; and, can Adrienne convince her daredevil husband that driving down mountain passes with the cruise control on is not good for her car, or their odds to live to see another ski weekend? All this, and lots more, this week on the Best of Car Talk.
