#1503: Return of the Schnauzer

Jan 17, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, we answer the question that has been keeping America awake for weeks—did Max the mechanic find a home for his namesake schnauzer? Elsewhere, Bob swears that smashing his Volvo into a rock improved its performance; Rick’s girlfriend’s VW spent the weekend in the shop and came back with an additional 20,000 miles on the odometer; and Lisa’s Estonian Moskvitch dies, and will only re-start if she jams a piece of wood into the ignition. Also, Tom and Ray try to referee a family dispute over a board game and manage to turn Brain Quest into Dummy Quest. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
