give the user a form to edit the car status like

<CFQUERY NAME="CarQuery" DATASOURCE="../dno/ser3">
  SELECT * FROM Cars
</CFQUERY>

<TABLE BORDER="2" >
    <FORM NAME="frm" ACTION="updatestatus.cfm" METHOD="post">
     <TR>
       <TH> Car ID </HT>
       <TH> Car_Status </HT>
     </TR>
   <CFOUTPUT QUERY="CarQuery">  
     <TR ALIGN="left">
        <TD>#CarQuery.CarID#<INPUT TYPE="Hidden" NAME="carid" VALUE="#CarQuery.CarID#"></TD>
        <TD><INPUT NAME="carstatus" VALUE="#CarQuery.Car_Status#"></TD>
     </TR>
   </CFOUTPUT>
    </FORM>
</TABLE>

<!--- updatestatus.cfm --->

<CFIF ISDEFINED('CARSTATUS') & LEN(TRIM(CARSTATUS))>
    <CFQUERY NAME="Qry_Update" DATASOURCE="Dsn">
       Update mytable
         set carstatus = <CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="cf_sql_varchar" VALUE="#carstatus#">
         where carid = <CFQUERYPARAM CFSQLTYPE="cf_sql_numeric" VALUE="#carid#">

<cfqueryparam> actually makes queries more secure, and, sometimes faster.

For the radio buttons: name them all alike and give them different values:
<radio name="carstatus" value="status 1" checked> status 1<br>
<radio name="carstatus" value="status 2"> status 2<br>
<radio name="carstatus" value="status 3"> status 3<br>

Also, make sure that always one radio button is selected, or the variable will not be passed to the next page.

On your action page, #form.carstatus# will hold the value of the selected button.

Chris is right.  Use Query/Bind Params.  Most DBs are setup for statement caching.  If you don't use Bind Params, each query with a different value will come in as a new query.  If you use Bind Params each value is used and the statement/query is retreived from the DB cache.
