This week on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Michelle is happily driving around Spokane in her $700 dream truck, or if it’s doing duty as a lawn ornament in her backyard. Elsewhere, Karlene’s mechanic diagnosed her Explorer’s annoying squeak as “an annoying squeak," with no suggestions for quieting it. Can Tom and Ray do perhaps just a wee bit better? Also, Ed may need to resort to healing crystals to start his son’s Taurus; Stan thinks his wife’s aggressive air-conditioning use may pop a belt; and Larry has a chance to take part in a wonderful bonding experience with his 14-year old son, and is looking for any way to get out of it! All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
