#1508: Keep Your Chins Up

Feb 21, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, in true Magliozzi fashion, a brotherly pat on the back turns into an insult. Hopefully, Ray can recover in time to explain why Michelle’s car radio changes the station whenever someone steps on the brake. Elsewhere, Cindy inherited Dad’s car. The good news it has only 39,000 miles on it. The bad news is it also has the smell from 39,000 cigars Dad smoked while driving it. Also, can Brenda’s relationship and her boyfriend’s clutch both survive her learning to drive a stick shift in his BMW; and, can Ken avoid divorce number four by pre-screening partners based on their cars? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
