I drive a Malibu - although tonight i might be driving the Rav4 again. Gosh Japanese build such wonderufl lasting vehicles but **** they know jack **** about usability. Who would have guessed that you have to reach under your steering wheel in the dark to press a button that is on a lever that then has to be pushed in a random direction just to set cruise control. I guess there is one thing GM seems to do alot better then Japanese and that's build usable electronics/interfaces to equipment.

have an H1 we are selling it soon, personal reasons and yes I hate the fact that we have one, shoot me kill me whatever.. I dont want it as much as the world doesnt want it.
My everyday car is a Chrysler 300 for now, I will sell it too. I want something that does better in the snow and no, I dont want to drive the Hummer anymore.
then we have a ford pick up truck.
and a boat, and 3 - 4 wheelers and 2 snowmobiles and Im sick of that too.
All I really want is a Cervelo... Im working on it, I will take all the toys and have a yard sale

A 1987 3/4 ton chevy work truck for $400. Cost another $1,100.00 to get in good shape. Only gets 10 MPG so save it for backup.
