This week on The Best of Car Talk, Tom and Ray have failed at radio, TV, and books, so why not add video game characters to the list? Also, Karl made a bad first impression on his new neighbors when the horn on his Civic wouldn't quit; Cass and her reunited husband can’t agree on which of their four heaps to get rid of; Lee was advised to give his Mazda a kerosene bath; and, what does a Quickie-Lube oil change have in common with an enema? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
