This week on Car Talk, Suzy´s drive across Mexico is off to a rocky start. She hasn´t even crossed the border, and her Vanagon is already making a new noise that could foreshadow the Death of a Transmission. Will Tom and Ray counsel her to turn back, or just to go shopping for a good pair of noise-canceling headphones? Elsewhere, Patricia´s Subaru is having troubles starting, and exacerbating the problem is a large buffalo grazing between her and her car; and Katie´s right leg is showing its displeasure with her new Volvo by going numb when she drives it. Also, does Neil´s son´s decision to play the double bass mean Neil´s on a one-way street to Minivan Land, and is Kelly´s boyfriend nuts for insisting on warming up his truck for 10 minutes in 50 degree weather? All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: December 22, 2012] 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/cart/121222/rt_cart_121222_sample.mp3.

[Contains explicit content] Susie talks to Andi Zeisler, author of We Were Feminists, Once, about the branding of ´´consumer feminism´´. If feminism is whatever makes you happy while shopping, is there any meaning left in the world? And then, it´s ´´New on Audible´´. The Measure of Her Powers: An M.F.K. Fisher Reader is essential listening for sensualists and lovers of a well-turned phrase. Have a question or news story for Susie?
