#1709: The Evil Twin

Mar 02, 2017
This week on the Best of Car Talk, Stella bought matching Monteros for her kids but dumped one because it spent more time in the shop than on the road. Should she be worried about the second Montero? Who better to weigh the chances there’s one good brother and one evil brother than Tom and Ray? Elsewhere, Heather has taken to calling her Jeep “Clunking Matilda”; Abe has an idea to navigate traffic in Our Fair City that may get him to work faster (but with a fat lip); and can Anne risk one more road trip in her overheating Subaru before it blows up? All this, plus a round of Stump the Chumps and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
