#1905: The Plow Minivan

Feb 02, 2019
This week on The Best of Car Talk, can Carl mount a snow plow on the front of his Plymouth Voyager? Sure, if he wants to destroy it. But Carl may have other options, that don’t involve moving to Florida. Elsewhere, Elizabeth’s truck hasn’t started in months. In that time, it briefly caught on fire and was decorated with holiday lights by Elizabeth’s neighbors. Can she restore its dignity by getting it running again? Also, Rick’s girlfriend’s VW spent a weekend at her mechanic’s, and came back with 20,000 new miles on the odometer; Michael’s horn has become a neighborhood nuisance; and Jessica can’t get her mechanics to talk to her instead of her boyfriend. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
