#1506: The Suburban and the Moose

February 7th, 2015

Episode 18 of 108 episodes

This week The Best of Car Talk kicks off with a tale that could only happen in Alaska. It starts with Mom spotting a moose near the driveway, and ends with the family’s Suburban driving through their basement— and taking the oil furnace with it. Then, in preparation for Valentine’s Day, we have two auto-marital disputes. Kit’s husband is trying to convince her that her car’s noise isn’t the brakes, just its mudflaps; and Angelina’s husband wants to put bigger tires on their Civic to improve its gas mileage. Also, why does Marcia’s Maxima smell like flatulence, even when her husband isn’t in the car? All this, plus a Puzzler from the Ceiling Light series, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
