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 how to maintain your vehicle if you’re an “outdoors person.” Also on this show:

  • Information about the Get Out Expo at WestWorld of Scottsdale.
  • How much does the average car repair cost?
  • How maintenance routines can change depending on how often you tow with your truck.
  • Things to keep in mind while shopping for a trailer.
  • Summer road trip and tire preparation.
  • 2006 Ford F150: The outside of my tires are wearing excessively. What could be contributing to this?
  • Kia: The master cruise control switch is working fine in my car, but the steering wheel controls aren’t functioning. Is this an electrical issue?
  • 2009 Nissan Versa: After having my codes read, I was told that there is an issue with my accelerator. Is this vital to fix immediately or should I be okay driving it for a bit longer?
  • 2001 Nissan Altima: I’ve noticed a leak coming from what I believe to be my oil pan. At 200k miles, do you think a shop will be hesitant to work on my car?
  • 2011 Chevrolet Equinox: I was told that my condenser is leaking, and days later I noticed a think grease coming from my right front. Any idea what this might be?
  • 2015 Dodge Challenger: I’m about to take my car in for its first oil change at 9k miles. Would you recommend switching to synthetic oil?
  • 2016 Subaru Forrester: I feel a surge or stutter while driving this vehicle. Have you seen this before with a CVT?
