This week on The Best of Car Talk, Alan thinks his Mercedes came with a 100,000-mile, self-destruct program. It’s suffered a series of problems since the odometer rolled over and, with the Check Engine light now linked to his MasterCard account, Alan thinks it may be time to move on. Elsewhere, Fred lied to his wife about loving his friend’s new car, and was punished by receiving the same car as a birthday present. Should he ‘fess up and risk the consequences, or suffer for the next 150,000 miles? Also, do Tom and Ray have enough liability insurance to help Keri soup up her Hornet scooter so she can win a rematch against a Vespa? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.

This week on Car Talk, we pay tribute to our beloved brother, friend, and co-host Tom Magliozzi, who passed away Monday, November 3rd. You’ll hear many of our favorite moments featuring Tom the consummate radio professional, Tom the philosopher king, Tom the storyteller, and ultimately Tom, the guy who enjoyed nothing more than to sit with his brother and all you listeners for an hour a week, laughing his butt off. This special edition of the show will be hosted by Ray. We’ll be listening, and we hope you will, too.
