#1512: Lie, Lie, and Lie

Mar 21, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, John’s car is a pigsty. As he prepares for a first date with a “classy woman," should he tidy it up or let her see him for the slob he truly is? Elsewhere, Barry had a numskull moment and drove his Blazer into a ditch. Now he can’t understand why the engine is running better post-submersion! Also, Chooch’s beloved Accord has become melodramatic; a black-light oil leak check is either too expensive or too psychedelic for Dorothea’s husband; and, Tom and Ray discover a new strategy for handling difficult callers—diagnosis by intimidation. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
