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.
