This week on The Best of Car Talk, Nancy is looking for a vehicle she and her family can take to Belize for a year. Other than something big enough to haul back Cuban cigars for Tom and Ray, what should she be looking for? Elsewhere, Diane’s husband thinks she’s nuts for insisting there’s more resistance in her gas pedal when the tank is full; Rebecca’s best solution for her Accord’s shifting problem may be to return the car to her Dad; Lily hopes her Taurus’s intermittent air conditioning can be resolved by buying a new Mustang; and Sandy’s neighbors really want her to figure out why her car screeches first thing in the morning. Also, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Bob tried to bomb the flies out of his truck. All this, plus one listener’s fondest Car Talk memory, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
