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, AZ talk about how to take care of your car during wet weather. Special guest includes Betsy Bennentt from Good Guys Car Show. Also on this show:

  • Double check your wiper blades when you know rain is in the forecast.
  • Light rain can create dangerous conditions on the road because it brings the oil on the streets to the surface and can make driving slick.
  • Check the tire tread on a regular basis so that your car has good traction during wet weather.
  • 2000 Lincoln LS: I hear a loud thud noise when I press and release the brake pedal.
  • 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe: I've been hearing a strange noise that sounds like something is wrong with my tires. After an alignment, it's still happening. The car is driving fine, but still has this lound noise.
  • 2004 Ford Escape: It feels as though my transmission is slipping. The diagnostic test said that it was a sensor. After repairs, it's still slipping and I'm wondering if I have a bad sensor?
  • 2006 Ford Escape 110,000 miles: When I come to a stop, the whole front end shakes. Is this a front motor mount problem?
  • 2004 Acura MDX 77,000 miles: I was told to get a timing belt changed due to the severe weather here in Arizona. Do I need to get a timing belt changed before 100,000 miles?
  • What is a two-step seller?

Cars talked about on this show are the 2000 Lincoln LS, 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe, 2006 Ford Escape, 2004 Ford Escape, 2004 Acura MDX.
