This week on 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. [Broadcast Date: November 15, 2014]
