#1523: The Crush

Jun 06, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Ann has the hots for her mechanic, and needs Tom and Ray’s help on two fronts. First, she needs to break something so she has an excuse to bring in her car. Second, she needs to let Bubba (as we’ll call him) know she’s not as young as he thinks she is. Elsewhere, Jayne’s car is losing oil and lots of it, but she has no idea where it’s going; Wendy is wondering if her hood flying open is a sign it’s time to dump her Mazda; and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Bob got his truck’s heat working in time for a North Carolina summer. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
