This week on Car Talk, after missing for two months, Jane's cat showed up at a house seven miles away, and across two major highways. Did Catzilla stow away during Jane's daily commute? Elsewhere, Sharon's Explorer is growling, and Gunther thinks a toilet is flushing under his Astrovan's dashboard. Also, Lori in Arizona threatens to make Male Answer Syndrome obsolete, with two words: "Google it!"; and, more than you ever wanted to know about Senior Prom planning in Yosemite National Park. All this, plus a new Puzzler from the Dates and Nuts series, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: March 24, 2012] 1. Language: English.
