#1839: The Chia Pontiac

Sep 26, 2018
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Jake’s car is growing hair on top and to make things worse, it clashes with the car’s color. Did someone slip Rogaine into Jake’s gas and does he need a paint job or a cream rinse to deal with it? Elsewhere, Nancy’s 3-year old son gets carsick when she drives “the wiggly road”, aka, The Pacific Coast Highway, but does fine when Dad’’s behind the wheel. Also, Jason’s car has three problems and may get three wrong answers; Mike agreed to pull his neighbor’s engine, and is about to learn he’s going to have to pull a lot more, too; and, Sally’s dream car may be trying to kill her. All this and more this week on The Best of Car Talk.
