This week on The Best of Car Talk, why do Tom and Ray think Heather is crazy for believing that starter fluid is solving her Subaru’s starting problem? Elsewhere, grad student Rebecca is considering driving from Connecticut to Indiana in a car that likely won’t make it to the New York border; Frances’s love for her Miata is being tested by the chance to inherit her uncle’s Porsche; and did Chris’s brother find love in a hyperbaric chamber after he and his girlfriend passed out from CO poisoning? All this, and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
