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 talks about  car accidents, insurance coverage, and what to do to with your vehicle after a wreck. Special guests include Kevin Rowe from I17 Collision Repair. Also on this show:

  • How often drivers get into accidents statistically.
  • Why drivers choose not to insure themselves properly.
  • Why you should still pay for full coverage even with a cheaper car.
  • How to protect yourself and make sure the situation is handled fairly after an accident.
  • How does having an accident report on your vehicle affect its trade-in value?
  • Information about I17 Collision Repair and what sets them apart from other auto body shops.
  • 2004 Ford F150: This truck is getting up there in mileage- what can I do to be proactive and get the longest life out of it?
  • 2001 Chevrolet Suburban: My truck is having a hard time starting. I’ve narrowed it down to a vacuum link or possibly the fuel pump- what do you think?
  • 2005 Dodge Ram: I’m looking to purchase this vehicle. It’s at around 165k miles- are there any concerns I should have?
  • 1999 Mercedes ML320: I was recently rear ended in this car. Since it’s already reached 200k miles it will probably be totaled out. What can I do as far as getting the most money back out of this vehicle?
  • 2000 Chevrolet Silverado: After using synthetic oil for some time, is it okay to switch back to conventional oil?
  • 1996 Nissan 200sx: I’m looking at around $2k to have everything wrong with this car fixed. At 140k miles- is it worth fixing?
  • 2001 Toyota Tacoma: Lately while I brake, I’m noticing a shift to one side. I’ve already replaced brake pads- what could be causing this?
  • 1990 Oldsmobile: What will it cost me to have my front seats redone or replaced?
