About a month ago I traded in my '02 BMW 325i for a '11 Hyundai Sonata SE. Best decision I've made in awhile.

Not all people who do this are over-aggressive @$$holes. I run up and down the interstate in Lincoln quite a bit, and despite the fact that we have on-ramps that are 3/4 of a mile long, the idiots in this town consistently enter the highway ten and fifteen mph below the speed limit. I don't like merging and immediately having traffic running up my tailpipe, so when I can, I jump out around these people and get up to highway speed.

People fail to realize those on-ramps are that long for a reason. Also, I apparently live in a town where nobody has anywhere to go, ever.

I would be happy about that. I live in a place where everyone has somewhere to go, always. That equals traffic.

You're liking the Hyundai huh? I've been eyeing the Genesiscoupe for a while... wouldn't mind one of those in the garage.

I saw this beautiful car on I-70 last week Nissan GT-R $85k is a but much for this fellow though. :,-(

You would not be happy about it, trust me. I've lived in towns with real traffic. It's far easier to deal with when there are simply too many cars on the road than when there's a stretch of empty road 1/4 mile long in front of you, but you can't get there because Idiot 1 and Idiot 2 are both going 5 mph below the speed limit and neither will move away from the other. Rolling road blocks of morons raises blood pressure far more than 1 million cars on the road.

Totally agree. At least when there's lots of traffic and it's steadily moving you can deal. It's like you accept it, yeah we're all only doing 50 mph but at least we're all moving and there's nothing more you can do. It's frustrating when, like in knapps example, you know you can move down the road faster but some lame asses wont let you. weak sauce.

Yeah that would explain the shoddy craftsmanship. :-B

Got my car back today, good as new...well almost. My front rim has a pretty ugly scratch on it that they couldn't rub out. They could have replaced the wheel, but by not replacing it they were able to work my deducible into the work. Oh well, I'll stop by a polishing shop one of these days and see if it's something that can be fixed.
