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 investigating your car warranty and getting the most out of it for your auto repair. Also on this show:

  • If I get my car repaired at a shop I trust, why do I need to go back to my dealer to register the repair?
  • What is a 24/24 warranty?
  • 1996 GMC 1500: I replaced the motor with a rebuilt motor and after 1,000 miles the motor just stopped. Everything seems to check out alright so I’m wondering what the problem could be?
  • 2001 Lexus ES300 166,000 miles: The engine light came on and it revs really high on the freeway. This problem comes and goes and I’m not sure why it won’t shift into 4th gear?
  • 1996 Ford Pickup: I’d like to convert the truck from a manual to automatic. Would you recommend this?
  • 2006 Honda Odyssey: I took my car in for a regular service check at the dealer. They told me that my CV boot needed to be replaced. After the repair there are more problems with oil leaking and rattling sound.
  • 2006 Chevy Silverado 185,000 miles: Lately when I’m fueling up the truck, it seems like I just barely squeeze the trigger and then it pops off as though I have a full tank. What do you think could be the problem?

Cars talked about on this show are 1996 GMC 1500, 2001 Lexus ES300, 1996 Ford Pickup, 2006 Honda Odyssey, and the 2006 Chevy Silverado .
