This week on The Best of Car Talk, Linda is suffering acute separation anxiety, after her dad sold the family’s beloved Rambler to a neighborhood teen. Can Tom and Ray help Linda get closure or suggest a few semi-legal strategies to get the car back? Elsewhere, Rita’s “soon to be ex-husband” says she should always use the parking brake, and she’s convinced he must be wrong because she’s dumping him. Also, Mike’s attempt to show off his ability to shift into third gear cost him Reverse; Gamin’s Civic is making noise ever since she drove through a deep puddle; and is there enough Prozac in the world to get Christine and her mom through driving lessons? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
