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 talk about how to find a highly qualified auto repair shop for your vehicle. Also on this show:

  • When it’s important to obtain a second opinion.
  • Common differences between different types of auto repair shops.
  • Why it’s important to find a shop that has made the investment into proper diagnostic tools.
  • 2010 Hyundai Sonata: A month after purchasing this vehicle used, I began noticing a whining sound during colder temperatures. Is this transmission related?
  • 1994 Ford F150: The clutch on this truck is having issues. I was told that this truck had problems with the air pressure. Is it possible that this is the only thing wrong?
  • 2008 Hyundai Accent: I’ve replaced the clutch twice in a year on this car. Is this my error or something the shop is doing wrong?
  • 2008 Dodge Magnum: My car is hesitating to start at times regardless of the temperature. My mechanic wants to wait until the problem gets worse. What are your thoughts?
  • 1997 Buick Century: Do you have any advice on how to permanently fix my window regulator?

Cars talked about on this show are the 2010 Hyundai Sonata, 1994 Ford F150, 2008 Hyundai Accent, 2008 Dodge Magnum, and the 1997 Buick Century.
