Maybe you already know about the Car Talk radio show, but if you have not heard of this automotive radio gem before, then you should write yourself a note to check it out the next time something goes strange with your car. Car Talk Radio was on the air for about 35 years before the hosts retired it, and it has aggregated over those years an incredible wealth of advice on almost every car issue under the sun. Here are the three best things about Car Talk.
1. Reviews and resources.
Not only does Car Talk offer a high quality auto radio show, but their website hosts reviews of car shops from all over the United States. If you want to get an in depth review of your local mechanic before entrusting your car to them, just search for your city and state and see if the mechanic is already listed. If they are not already in there, then you can contribute a review yourself! The archived radio shows are also a great source for advice and knowledgeable car discussions.
2. Community forums.
It can be difficult to find quality community forums around the subject of car repair, but lucky for us the Car Talk website has just that. Search for an issue, or search for your make and model and in minutes you could be finding a solution to your problem, or submitting that problem to a knowledgeable community base.
3. A great way to kill time at the repair shop.
If you are lucky enough to be at a repair shop with wifi, get on to the Car Talk website and you will be rewarded with the ability to kill an hour or two by reading the best letters and best hate mail the show has received, browsing their photo albums, or trying to work out their car themed puzzles.
If you find the Car Show radio program then that is just a little bit different, but can also be a source for valuable information. The Car Show radio program specializes in providing straightforward advice and car knowledge to the listener. Their website also provides interesting interviews, and an archive of their previously recorded shows.
So before you go ahead and fork over a large sum of money to your mechanic, these radio shows could provide to you an unbiased opinion or more information about the particular car trouble you have. On the radio, or online, the Car Show radio program and Car Talk are excellent resources for the layperson who does not know a carburetor from a cylinder, and car mechanics alike.
