#1547: One Sensitive Dog

This week on The Best of Car Talk, why did Bob's mild-mannered dog go wacko when Bob dumped his Mercedes and bought an Audi? Is the pooch status-obsessed, or is there an olfactory explanation? Elsewhere, Ellen's Camry smells like rotten eggs, and she thinks her dealer is blowing sulphur up her skirt, rather than fixing it. Also, Glen's vacation got a little more exciting when his rental car caught on fire. Was it Glen's fault, and, more important, did he tell the rental company? And on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Bill learned to drive a stick shift in time for the high school dance, and if his date is still speaking to him. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

#1546: Brilliant Bamboozling

Tom and Ray have dispensed lots of booooogus advice over the years, but this week on Car Talk they've got one answer that's so whacked out, it wins one caller's award for the most brilliant piece of bamboozling he's ever heard. The guys may be on more solid ground convincing Benjamin that doing donuts in Dad's Camry may indeed have cooked the power steering pump. Also, should Kathy be concerned that her husband carries a picture of his long-lost Studebaker in his wallet— but not one of her? And, everything you need to know about friendship, explained in two minutes. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
