#1628: Remember When Your Car Blew Up, Dad?

July 9th, 2016

Episode 93 of 108 episodes

This week on The Best of Car Talk, did Christy destroy her Dad's car 15 years ago by putting black tape over a flashing temperature light— and then continuing to drive? And is Dad ready to forgive and forget? It's one of our all-time favorite auto-familial disputes. Elsewhere, Andy got talked into replacing his front brakes to help stop a noise coming from the rear; Nancy's husband says she's risking death by keeping her air conditioning on recirculate; and should Mickey be concerned that she's on her 4th consecutive boyfriend who drives an '82 Honda? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
