I think they're brilliant cars, and if I had a car, that'd be the one I'd have. As far as I'm concerned, the vehicles that disgorge clowns are the SUVs etc.

You don't understand. Many people require the SUV for the capacity to carry their egos.

No, I think they are just afraid to own a car that is smarter than themselves.

It seems that SUV's also require the driver to maintain 24/7 cellular contact with somebody. There's an intersection north of here... at least once a month somebody is mangled or killed. SUV/cell-phone/real-estate people are nearly always at fault.



PS. The intersection now has 24/7 video cameras rolling...

SY - have you seen the ad campaign by VW that includes "the Passat, lowest Ego emmissions of any German made vehicle" (or does this campain run only this side of the border?

why do you drive an overpriced/overpowered/inefficient vehicle?

"I make more money than you"
"cause my daddy didn't hug me"
"so men will notice me"
"I'm compensating for my shortcomings"

As it happens, I have a Passat. I'll never buy another VW. My ego can't take the repair bills.

In the Southpark cartoon they mention a car call the "Pious"
However it gives off emissions called "smug"

Actually, several european countries has banned the use of cell phones when driving. Strangely enough, it hasn't come to that in Sweden, where we usually care a lot about traffic safety. Well, maybe it is not so surprising, we do after all have one of the biggest companies manufacturing cell phones.
