We move closer and closer to all being passengers. I still own the first car I purchased a '72 model Datsun/Toyota/Honda 240 XYZ and yes it's a wonderful way back machine. Every time I drive it and oh yes it still drives today it transports me back to a simpler and much more involved driving day and age. This is both good and back as we have come so far with technology but it's bitter sweet when the driving experience is diminished so. Today's drivers are so coddled and preoccupied with communication that driving isn't even secondary but many times ranks in the 3rd or 4th percentile of priority while DRIVING! It's madness and I would love for a license to drive to actually mean something substantial again. Kari I feel your pain but I believe we are on a path of no return to common sense as we unfortunately aren't to be trusting any longer of possessing same !
has your car got 3.11 windows?

does it crash often...and is it hard to find drivers?



ok, i'll stop.

sounds like most of the issues with this car are with the user and not the car

Maybe people are missing the point, here in the states driving is a privilege and not a right. But we treat it more like a right than a privilege. Does that make sense? So because of this our cars must now behave more like a driver than respond to a driver. Slowly but surely the driver is being replaced my a computer, just wait we are soon all to be tracked via gps and black boxes and when you go over 5 miles per hour a ticket will just go against you and your license and you'll get an email or text to your pda/smart phone of the infraction. And people will be eating more, texting, tweeting, talking more all the while driving. I love driving too much to allow this day to come without a fight. Any of you out there with me on this or will you just let go of the wheel and go quietly into Wally World?

maybe somebody else is missing the point of the thread, but anyway - how long will it be before complete robo-control of our cars? is this what you mean by 'wally world'?

we jump and strap ourselves into our (super fast) sleek curvy vehicle, tap in the coordinates/address into the robo-navigator (or just speak or think in a certain way), and the satellites, motion/collision detectors and cpu's will take care of the rest. *shudders*

i think i would prefer teleportation.

beam me up scotty!

Meh, driving is overrated. It's a boring repetitive chore, vehicular maintenance is expensive and time consuming, and seeing the same scenery on the commute day in day out gets old real fast.

I'd enjoy driving more if we were allowed a little more leeway in dealing with other motorists.

We own two cars (pickup trucks) and four motorcycles. The bikes get the most miles by far.
