#1533: The Geek Squeak

Aug 15, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Dana’s wife’s brakes squeak only when he drives her car. Could it be holding a grudge, or is Dana driving too much like a geek? Elsewhere, Sylvia thinks her VW’s problems may be a result of spending two years near a uranium mine; Jim is almost finished restoring a Land Cruiser, but is still searching for the perfect sound; and, on Stump the Chumps we find out if Ralph’s Suburban really was playing “Beat the Clock.” All this, plus some of William Shakespeare’s best un-published plays, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
