    #2314: What's My Car Worth?

    Trade-in value for most used cars is a carefully crafted calculation made by car dealers having to do with the car's current resale value and the size of the dealer's boat payment. For junkboxes like the Chevy Malibu that Joan is trying to unload it just depends on how much gas is in the tank. Find out what our two knuckleheads thought of Joan's heap on this episode of the Best of Car Talk.

    John from Pennsylvania thinks he has an atypical warranty issue with his local Chevy dealer. If he explains to the dealer that his new Corvette exhibits engine problems at 140 miles per hour, he's pretty sure that the dealer will then explain to John that he has voided his warranty. John is clearly nuts for driving at mach one, but is he right about his warranty? Find out on this episode of the Best of Car Talk.

Finally!

Excellent show... funny... insightful... informative... and the puzzler is great. Family friendly show. Glad to see if finally as a podcast.

So I guess we can expect to hear... "And don't podcast like my brother!"

I love Car Talk!

These guys are great listening whether you're working out, listening at home or driving. My dad got me hooked many years ago. He used to record the shows on tape. I'd always take a boxful of casettes with me when I drove to/from college 1100 miles from home. They're entertaining and educational. I feel quite confident in my ability to diagnose a bad master cylinder or a worn fan belt... They have some material that is kind of cheesy but the hour is well worth it. It's truly a part of my life. I hope they never retire! Listen in...you won't be disappointed!
