#1617: What Are Yews Doing

Apr 23, 2016
This week on The Best of Car Talk, can Liz use her Maxima to remove some unwanted shrubs from her yard, or will her bumper wind up as part of the landscape? Elsewhere, Nancy’s 16-year-old son wants a Camaro. Will she be abdicating all parental responsibility if she buys him one, and is there a good alternative that’s big, ugly, and cool? Also, Pam wants to ease her husband’s guilt over denting her door; Charles succumbed to Male Answer Syndrome trying to diagnose his wife’s noisy Voyager; and, is Kirk’s steering problem a result of Post-Alignment Euphoria, or Post-Alignment Anxiety? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
