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 a new commitment to automotive services in 2021 and having an auto repair shop to call home. Also on this show:

  • Catching up on regular automotive maintenance.
  • Why keeping service records are important especially if you're shopping out a new repair shop.
  • Information about pre-purchase and comprehensive vehicle inspections.
  • How to be part of the repair process with your shop and important questions to ask.
  • 2001 Ford Taurus: At only 100k miles my car is having trouble starting. I have to clean my battery terminals frequently - is there another solution to this problem?
  • 2000 Honda CRV: There is a grinding noise coming from my steering column. I suspect there is a power steering leak, however there's still a noise when it's full of fluid. Is this an issue with the pump?
  • Ford Equinox: I was recently told my catalytic converter needed to be replaced. After switching gas caps, my check engine light went away. Is there still a possibility I will need a new catalytic converter?
  • Jeep: My USB and electrical outlet have stopped working. How can I find the source of this issue?
  • 2003 Mazda Miata: After changing my sparkplugs I'm still having an issue finding the source of a misfire. Any advice?

Cars talked about on this show are the 2001 Ford Taurus, 2000 Honda CRV, Ford Equinox, Jeep, and the 2003 Mazda Miata.
