This week on The Best of Car Talk, should Bill risk humiliation and passenger nausea by trying to learn how to drive a stick shift in time for the high school dance?Given that his options are the family minivan or station wagon, he may need to go for it and have a handy supply of barf bags on hand.Elsewhere, Jane's neighbor's dog is biting her Subaru's tires and chasing her car. Jane is thinking a healthy dose of pepper spray may help dissuade Fido, but Tom and Ray may have a more (or less) humane solution.Also, Abby’s Accord has a burning smell since she accidentally backed down a friend's steep driveway in the drive; Steve promised his wife he could fix her oil problem three months ago, but is stumped; and can Ray convince John his air conditioning is making noise, even when it's off?All this, plus a quiz for the Philosopher King, and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
