This week on Car Talk, we prepare for baseball season with a few choice quotes from the one and only Yogi Berra. Then we prepare our callers for visits to their Loan Officers. First up is Emily, whose $600 Volvo won't go into reverse. Then there's John, whose '84 Ford F150 is becoming more rust than truck. Meanwhile, out in Wyoming, Rebecca is wondering whether she should embrace synthetic oil, and Penelope in Washington is trying to decide which bit of Click and Clack wisdom is less lousy. Also, a simple oil change turns into the Worst Day Ever for Joe in Kansas City, and is a Honda Civic begging its owner not to move it from sunny Santa Barbara to Our Fair State? All this and more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: March 27, 2010] 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/cart/100327/rt_cart_100327_sample.mp3.

This week on Car Talk, Ann's car is emitting a mysterious gummy substance through the vents. Her mechanic doesn’t know what it is, or where it's coming from. But, that hasn't stopped him from telling Ann it'll cost her $1000 to fix it! Talk about psychic powers! Elsewhere, 13-year-old Thomas was gifted a '94 Altima for helping a car dealer. Now, he needs Tom and Ray's help convincing his Mom to let him drive it when he gets his license in three years. Also, Alita needs help keeping the Truck That Wouldn't Die from, uh, dying; Amy's been convinced that her Civic's starting problem is a Honda safety feature that was so special they only used it on her car; and on Stump the Chumps we find out why Jean's Porsche almost rolled off a cliff while in Park. All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: August 4, 2012] 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/cart/120804/rt_cart_120804_sample.mp3.

This week on Car Talk, Wendy's Honda was fogging up, but only when her husband was in the car with her. Tom and Ray postulated that hubby's breathing was causing the problem, and suggested Wendy experiment by having him breathe through a snorkel, out an open window. Now Wendy's back for Stump the Chumps with a full report on the Great Snorkel Experiment. Elsewhere, Adrienne found the perfect birthday present for her husband--700 pounds of rocks! Can her Saab handle the 300-mile trip, or does she need to transport one rock at a time? Also, Steve's DIY brake repair has resulted in his truck taking out two car ports; Matt's CRV is not putting out heat, which is a big problem, since Matt is in Anchorage; and, Rain got a rude Welcome Home from her Acura, after leaving it parked for three months: mold, and a thriving ant colony. All this, plus a tale of a very smart car radio, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: February 2, 2013] 1. Language: English.

A searing memoir about one woman's road to hope following the death of her troubled brother, told through the series of cars that accompanied her on her journey. Growing up in a blue-collar family in the Midwest, Melissa Stephenson longed for escape. Her wanderlust was an innate reaction to the powerful personalities around her and also came from her desire to find a place in the world where her artistic ambitions wouldn't be thwarted. She found in automobiles the promise of a future beyond Indiana state lines. From a lineage of secondhand family cars of the late '60s, to the Honda that carried her from Montana to Texas as her new marriage disintegrated, the '70s Ford she drove away from her brother's house after he took his life - leaving her the truck, a dog, a few mixed tapes, and the VW van she now uses to take her kids camping - Melissa knows these cars better than she knows some of the people closest to her. Driven away from grief and toward hope, Melissa reckons with what it means to lose a beloved sibling. Driven is a powerful story of healing - one for all who have had to look back at pain to see how they can now move forward. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eileen Stevens.
