This week on The Best of Car Talk, Whitney’s husband insists on waiting until the low fuel lights comes on before getting gas. Is he damaging their car, and even if he is, would curing this habit damage his psyche? Elsewhere, Tom thinks his mechanic is suffering from “Symmetry Neurosis” for insisting on replacing parts in pairs. Also, Ricardo had his car trucked from San Francisco to Boston and now its clutch is cooked; Dana loaned her Jetta to a friend and got it back with a new noise; and Howard’s Lincoln is emitting a whooping noise when he gets of the car. Did he buy the extremely limited Three Stooges Curly Package? All this and more, this week on the Best of Car Talk.
