We recorded this show on New Year’s weekend while sitting around in pajamas drinking mimosas. Dawn on the Autobahn explores winter inclement weather driving safety tips, while the guys ask “why the hell are you on the road to begin with?” What grinds Mickey’s gears THIS week? Replacing buttons with touchscreens on the dashboard. Listener Karen describes the braking problems with her worst car, a ’72 Dodge Dart. This leads Ben to nostalgically recall his own early history with a brake failure. And listener Kathy hated her Chevy Caprice Classic, which leads Dave to nostalgically pick a fight with his college roommate Paul over parallel parking. Reddit asks about power steering issues in a salvage title, and we discuss the Cunningham’s automotive preferences.
Welcome, one and all, to the greatest car-talk podcast ever! We remind you to always end on a happy note. Like with unicorns, and sparkles, and stuff. Not so sparkly, Ben discusses a friend with a car related problem. Mickey isn’t all puppies and rainbows about wiper blades. However, Eric is over the moon about his shop. Beka clearly has the warm and fuzzies for Christine. Frank teaches us that it’s about the little things. And Rob shows us the way to a happy ending.
We record at Strongbox West, in Atlanta. If you would like to pose a question or offer feedback, please visit our website.
