The 350 pickup is not a bad choice at all. I am inclined to say the Silverado or Avalanche tops it, though.

Obnoxious drivers don't limit themselves to a specific vehicle, and to think otherwise is to put yourself at risk.

But some cars are favored by more aggressive people.

Why hasn't anyone said the Hummer H2? The H1 is truly badass but the H2 is for arrogant asshats who like to waste their money on a useless POS.

Yes, it is. I wholeheartedly agree with you.

Almost every Hummer H2 I've seen is pristine with no scratches, no roof racks, and owners who have no idea of how to style their car (spinners on H2, really? But no grill?). Although I have seen one really hot chick drive a H2.

As for obnoxious drivers, Escalades, Infiniti SUVs, and tops the list for me, they are mostly driven by Asians. People driving F150-F350 series and Dodge 1500-3500 are actually quite accommodating on the road here.

How is the driving record?

I side with you. I know Jetta's are rarely running well enough to pass a bike.

1: Anything VW. It must be a special thing taught by the VW salespeople to new drivers to find a gap 1-2 atoms wide in traffic, slam their car in it, then immediately panic stop.
2: People driving old American cars before 1989, especially Chrysler K cars. Fear them.
3: Lincoln Town Cars/Ford Crown Victorias/Mercury Grand Marquis
4: Priuses -- 75% chance the person is a decent driver, 25% chance the guy is in MPG uber alles mode, holding up traffic because he or she wants bigger numbers on that gauge.
