#1908: Brake and Seek

Feb 23, 2019
This week on The Best of Car Talk, every time Michelle’s friend steps on the brake, his car radio changes the station. If this only happened during our show, Tom and Ray could just compliment the radio on its good taste and move on, but they’ll have to conjure some plausible explanation. Elsewhere, Leslie thinks her Chrysler committed autocide by rolling away while parked at her in-laws. Also, Cindy loves the Olds she inherited from dad, but could live without the cigar smell that came with it; and 3-time marriage loser Ken thinks he may have better luck next time by scouting mates based on what they drive. All this, plus some brotherly advice gone haywire, and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
