America's funniest auto mechanics take calls from weary car owners all over the country, and crack wise while they diagnose Dodges and dismiss Diahatsus. You don't have to know anything about cars to love this one hour weekly laugh fest.
||#1410: Car Talk Vs The Marital Industrial Complex||This week on Car Talk, will James and his fiancee incur the wrath of Miss Manners and their families by registering for gifts at Louie's Lexus rather than Chafing Dishes R Us? Elsewhere, Puzzler Master Will Shortz is having trouble starting his Saab. Will Tom and Ray trade a diagnosis for the answer to 9 Down? Also, Mike may need a gregarious gullible geek to help figure out why his car is creaking; Susan's brother hit new heights of bogosity by trying to convince her she's freezing in his car because it's too efficient; and can Eric spend his summer driving the Alcan highway with his dad and sister, and remain on speaking on terms with either one? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.||3/8/14||Free||View In iTunes|
||#1409: The Curly Package||This week on Car Talk, did Howard get the special Three Stooges option on his Lincoln, or is there another reason why it sounds like Curly whenever he gets out of the car. Elsewhere, Tom got conflicting advice on his Taurus' flashing oil light, and he's wondering who's the genius, and who's the quack. So, who better to ask than two genius quacks? Also, John's Land Cruiser may need a new steering box, or his mechanic may just be looking for another John-funded trip to Vegas; and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Betsy's truck was really spewing gas because of mud chiggers. All this, plus how one listener's attempt to solve the Puzzler resulted in a police house call, this week on Car Talk.||3/1/14||Free||View In iTunes|
Excellent show... funny... insightful... informative... and the puzzler is great. Family friendly show. Glad to see if finally as a podcast. So I guess we can expect to hear... "And don't podcast like my brother!"
I love Car Talk!
These guys are great listening whether you're working out, listening at home or driving. My dad got me hooked many years ago. He used to record the shows on tape. I'd always take a boxful of casettes with me when I drove to/from college 1100 miles from home. They're entertaining and educational. I feel quite confident in my ability to diagnose a bad master cylinder or a worn fan belt... They have some material that is kind of cheesy but the hour is well worth it. It's truly a part of my life. I hope they never retire! Listen in...you won't be disappointed!
