This week on Car Talk, after three crashes, nine vandalizations, and one, "Ah, never mind" theft, Ellen has decided to part ways with her Honda Civic. Does she need to disclose its troubled past to prospective buyers? Elsewhere, Glenn loves his CRX, but his friends are telling him the car is scaring away potential dates. Does he need new wheels, or maybe just a new wardrobe? Also, Greg's Jetta begins shedding hair; Alicia decides that four years is long enough to ignore a flashing Check Engine light, and, after an unfortunate spider incident causes Gina to ditch her car in Lake Minnetonka, she wants to know if "Totaled" really does mean totaled. All this, and lots more, this week, on Car Talk.
