Get the latest Flash Player to see this player.

This week on The Best of Car Talk, are Mari and her husband grown-up enough to graduate from a Neon to a Mercedes, even if it means having to brush their teeth and hair every day? Elsewhere, Abbie got into a fender bender with a Physics Professor, and hopes he can help her cover the rental car. Would she have better luck with someone from the Philosophy department? Also, Ben almost managed to set his car and vacuum cleaner both on fire on the same day; Kathie's boyfriend may need to be dumped for suggesting it's okay to tailgate; and, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Dan's truck suffered from a "classic case" of Car Talk Bogus Answer Syndrome. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

This week on The Best of Car Talk, in true Magliozzi fashion, a brotherly pat on the back turns into an insult. Hopefully, Ray can recover in time to explain why Michelle’s car radio changes the station whenever someone steps on the brake. Elsewhere, Cindy inherited Dad’s car. The good news it has only 39,000 miles on it. The bad news is it also has the smell from 39,000 cigars Dad smoked while driving it. Also, can Brenda’s relationship and her boyfriend’s clutch both survive her learning to drive a stick shift in his BMW; and, can Ken avoid divorce number four by pre-screening partners based on their cars? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
