Bumper to Bumper Radio, the car guys on KTAR, 92.3 FM in Phoenix, AZ, broadcast every Saturday from 11:00 am to noon. On this show, Dave Riccio of Tri-City Transmission in Tempe, AZ and Matt Allen of Virginia Auto Service in Phoenix, AZ talk about common vehicle repairs that auto shops perform during the summer monsoon months. Also on this show:

  • Why some newer vehicles have a harder time during flooding.
  • Things you can check on your car by yourself at home.
  • How to take care of your windshield wiper blades.
  • The toll on your car’s battery during a storm.
  • How to use your air conditioning during a dust storm.
  • Information about the “Summer of Love” promotion for Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
  • 2013 Nissan Altima: The last time I took my car into the dealership it was recommended to me that I have 4 services that my manual says I shouldn’t need at this time (50k miles.) Should I still have these done?
  • Toyota Camry: I’m considering purchasing a newer Camry. Have you seen any issues or recalls with these cars?
  • 1996 Pontiac Thunderbird: I’m having an issue with my oil pressure. After replacing a few parts I’m still noticing problems. Any recommendations?
  • 1997 Nissan Pickup: I’ve replaced the brake booster twice on this truck. Is there something causing these to fail or are the aftermarket parts just not comparable to the factory parts?
  • 2009 Toyota Camry: I’ve noticed some shaking while I brake. I’ve been told it isn’t the brakes themselves or my tires- what else could be causing this?

Cars talked about on this show are the Volkswagen Beetle, 2013 Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry, 1995 Pontiac Thunderbird, 1997 Nissan Pickup, and 2009 Toyota Camry.
