This week on The Best of Car Talk, Tom and Ray demonstrate their unmatched ability to plant all four feet firmly in their mouths and endanger their marriages - all while diagnosing a simple vacuum leak. Later, however, they just might make amends by helping to save Beth´s marriage, with a ruling on whether her Civic´s clutch should be more afraid of Beth or her husband. Elsewhere, Susan is a philosophy professor by day, and a pig rescuer by night. Is there one vehicle that can handle both lifestyles, or does she need a dedicated Pigmobile? Also, Jackie´s squealing brakes are wreaking havoc for her pet Chihuahuas; and Daniel got a very unpleasant surprise when his mechanic removed his distributor cap - think Vincent Price in ´´The Fly.´´ All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
