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, Matt Allen of Virginia Auto Service in Phoenix, AZ  talks about the different reasons that bring drivers into the auto repair shop and how to get the most from every visit. Also on this show:

  • How many times should you visit your repair shop in a year?
  • Information about battery corrosion in vehicles.
  • What causes an alternator to fail prematurely?
  • Why choosing an auto repair shop to call home could save you from needing your car towed.
  • Road trip tips and checklists for Thanksgiving drivers.
  • 2004 Dodge Ram: My truck recently had a severe overheating episode. Is my motor able to be rebuilt or does it need to be replaced?
  • 2005 Nissan Murano: I've put less than 3k miles on this vehicle in the past year. What type of maintenance or inspection would you recommend for a vehicle that is only driven this often?
  • 1990 Mercedes: I've noticed a vibration when I put my car in reverse. Should I be concerned with my transmission?
  • 2012 Honda Civic: My brake fluid light has been coming on intermittently following significant pressure. Should it be safe to drive until I can get to a shop in a few days?

Cars talked about on this show are the 2004 Dodge Ram, 2005 Nissan Murano, 1990 Mercedes, and the 2012 Honda Civic.
