#1539: Dashboard Jesus, Protect Us!

Sep 26, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Click and Clack delve into the subject of dashboard icons and the best geographical position for a duct taped, plastic Jesus. After all, the roads are dangerous and drivers need all the protection they can get! Also, Sarah’s minivan was stolen twice in one day (this is one case where the third time is not the charm!); John’s tires are gonzo. Was it due to a defect or his laziness? And Liz’s Honda has a horrible B.O. smell. Can she blame it on her husband? All that, plus the answer to this season’s inaugural puzzler, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

I love your show and listen any chance I get over the weekend. Hope you find a way to keep the show going, I am sure taht was one wish of all. On Dashboard Jesus, I have to say you guys are wrong. So here is the story. I am on a tour in my friends 4WD with my him driving a little crazy on outback roads. So, I see Jesus looking at us. I turn Jesus to look at road and tell a prayer. "The way this guy drives, please look after us and those driving at us." You comment. Cheers
