This week, Car Talk kicks off with a few new words that may be coming to a dictionary near you. Then, they put one of those words right to work, with a series of brilliant stupiphanies: Jim in Florida learns why his next boat trip may leave him stranded in international waters; Liz in Missouri discovers that Porsche ownership comes with a monthly dose of sticker shock; and Jean finds out why her car may have violated just about every one of Newton's laws.
Also, Rich needs help choosing the perfect $100 Demolition Derby car; and Will has a serious interior decorating concern: how do you mount a dashboard hula dancer so it doesn't become a projectile if the airbag deploys? All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: December 3, 2011]
