This week on The Best of Car Talk, Tamsen’s mechanics are replacing lots of parts on her Super Beetle (and there weren’t that many to begin with), but not the part that’s causing the car to vibrate. Are they genuinely clueless or just using a dairy farm technique? Elsewhere, Dennis dreamed that someone gave him a ’66 Ford Fairlane. Will Drs. Magliozzi make a house call to help him interpret it? Also, Kathleen’s trying to save miles on her leased car by “straightening the curves”; Johanna is moving into a teepee for the summer and is worried about her car washing away (we’d be more concerned about the teepee); and Donna’s husband hijacked her new Miata, insisting he needed to drive it to “break it in properly”; and we proudly unveil the Car Talk Listener Rebate Program. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
