#1933: The Geek Squeak

Aug 17, 2019
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Dana’s wife’s Volvo’s brakes squeak, but only when Dana drives the car. Does his wife have a heavy foot or is Dana driving too much like a geek? Elsewhere, Louise made the mistake of taking her car to a specialist rather than a GP to diagnose a clunk; Sylvia thinks her Rabbit’s array of problems are due to radiation poisoning from being parked near a uranium mine; and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Tom and Ray correctly diagnosed why Ralph’s Suburban was imitating an old TV game show. Also, a date goes awry when a Jaguar is mistaken for something else; and a few of Shakespeare’s plays not coming to a stage near you. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
