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 talks about when it may be time to take your car “out to pasture.” Also on this show:

  • Why customers deny car repairs that may be necessary.
  • Important maintenance you should never skip.
  • Why modern vehicles last longer than those in the past.
  • 2014 Volkswagen Passat: I’m having a TDI issue. Is there a shop you’d recommend to look into this?
  • 2008 Nissan Pathfinder: I’m finding that I need to let off the gas for my car to shift into the next
  • gear. What is causing this transmission issue?
  • 2004 Toyota Corolla: I’ve been using more oil than I think I should be, but I don’t see any leaks. What
  • can I do to resolve this issue?
  • 2006 Ford F150: I recently had my differential replaced after water was found inside. I’ve noticed some
  • noises however- is this common with aftermarket parts?
  • 2008 Cadillac: After recently purchasing this vehicle 4 months ago I’ve noticed an oil leak. Should I
  • expect the dealer to repair this?
