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 talks about how to maintain your vehicle if you’re an “outdoors person.” Also on this show:

  • Information about the Get Out Expo at WestWorld of Scottsdale.
  • How much does the average car repair cost?
  • How maintenance routines can change depending on how often you tow with your truck.
  • Things to keep in mind while shopping for a trailer.
  • Summer road trip and tire preparation.
  • 2006 Ford F150: The outside of my tires are wearing excessively. What could be contributing to this?
  • Kia: The master cruise control switch is working fine in my car, but the steering wheel controls aren’t functioning. Is this an electrical issue?
  • 2009 Nissan Versa: After having my codes read, I was told that there is an issue with my accelerator. Is this vital to fix immediately or should I be okay driving it for a bit longer?
  • 2001 Nissan Altima: I’ve noticed a leak coming from what I believe to be my oil pan. At 200k miles, do you think a shop will be hesitant to work on my car?
  • 2011 Chevrolet Equinox: I was told that my condenser is leaking, and days later I noticed a think grease coming from my right front. Any idea what this might be?
  • 2015 Dodge Challenger: I’m about to take my car in for its first oil change at 9k miles. Would you recommend switching to synthetic oil?
  • 2016 Subaru Forrester: I feel a surge or stutter while driving this vehicle. Have you seen this before with a CVT?

Cars talked about on this show are the 2006 Ford F150, Kia, 2009 Nissan Versa, 2001 Nissan Altima, 2011 Chevrolet Equinox, 2015 Dodge Challenger, and the 2016 Subaru Forrester
