This week on The Best of Car Talk, Tom and Ray turn to the wisdom of Butch Cassidy to help settle a dispute between Erin’s husband and friend over shifting. Then, the guys help James and his fiancee take on the Marital-Industrial Complex by registering for gifts at Louie’s Lexus rather than Chafing Dishes R Us. Also, Bob loves the former police car he just bought but may need to replace a part he doesn’t believe exists; Anita’s truck has developed a heavy breathing sound; and Eric is looking for the perfect vehicle for a family trip along the Al-Can Highway. Maybe he should be looking for four perfect vehicles? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
