#1517: Lock Him in the Cellar

April 25th, 2015

Episode 29 of 108 episodes

This week on the Best of Car Talk, should Heidi let her husband change her Volvo's timing belt? Before you answer, we should tell you that Heidi's husband is a tennis pro, with no repair experience, and that messing up this job will kill the engine. Wanna rethink your answer? Elsewhere, Craig's girlfriend's mother bought him a new truck. If Craig breaks up with the daughter, is it also splitsville with the truck? Also, Nathan dinged his girlfriend's Civic while driving it without a license—or her permission. Can Tom and Ray help him fix the car's thunk before the next sound is her giving Nathan a dope slap? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
