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 why it's often worth it to repair your current vehicle rather than purchase another pre-owned vehicle. Also on this show:

  • Costly used vehicle repairs and why the best used car is the car you already own.
  • How common is it for repair shops to add unnecessary repairs to your bill?
  • 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle: I'm upgrading a few components of this car. What is the best alternator to put in this vehicle?
  • 2012 Cadillac CTS: At 80k miles I've noticed my car idles rough. What could be the cause of this?
  • 2016 Lexus RX350: How can I fix the power seating in this vehicle?
  • 2005 Volkswagen Cabriolet: I'm having trouble with the passenger window sticking while trying to go into convertible mode. What's the reason for this?
  • 2000 Honda Accord: The spark plug wire melted to the spark plug under my hood. How can I loosen it up?
