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 how automotive services, repairs, maintenance and components have evolved over time. Also on this show:

  • What the different colors of warning lights can tell you about the health of your vehicle.
  • Information about a few of the less common dashboard warning lights.
  • Are there warning lights that you can ignore? Which should you not?
  • 2008 Toyota Tundra: My truck struggles to start and I've been quoted two different repairs from two separate dealers. What do you think could be causing this?
  • Ford Windstar: The ABS light comes on intermittently in my van - especially during colder temperatures. How concerned should I be with the health of my brakes?
  • 2004 Ford F150: I was quoted up to $800 to replace the spark plugs in my truck. Does this seem reasonable?
  • 2005 Porsche Cayenne: Where would you recommend I take my vehicle for cosmetic repairs and should I always be using premium gasoline?
  • 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe: I've noticed a loud thump coming from the rear of my vehicle while driving over speed bumps. What could be causing this?

Cars talked about on this show are the 2008 Toyota Tundra, Ford Windstar, 2004 Ford F150, 2005 Porsche Cayenne, and the 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe.
