Cars We Drive! - Page 1626

post #24376 of 26269
Can't disagree with you on those points. We got people over here driving while watching TV, having tiny dogs sit in their lap while driving, doing stuff on their phones, shaving, doing their make-up,being distracted by passengers in the back seat(it's japan thing for a solo passenger to sit in the back) and all of this can be attributed to the rise of Automatic. And in-car entertainment. Disengaging drivers completely can't be a good thing. People will forget how to really drive.

Speaking as a mechanic. If an engine sensor fails, your check engine light comes on or your car won't run well. If a driving sensor fails. It could be fatal. I don't want to deal with that unproven tech in a car.

All cars should be Stick shift, and the only tech you need is a bangin audio system, and a bluetooth feature that answers calls for you.

Most drivers suck and it has nothing to do with manual vs. automatic.

Truth. Auto's for heavy traffic daily's. Stick for free road daily's. But my pount is there should be no distractions or aids. -drive or don't.


Side annecdote.
Just learned my company founder/Sensei is a veteran "car guy" , And former rally driver, used to rally FR Corrolla's. Knows old school wrenching, and heel/toes like a bawss.
-tonight he ordered me a valet taxi, and instructed the driver to take my Car through the twisties. While i rode shotgun.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I took a sociology class in college. The take away I remember (paraphrasing, but no joke) is the average human thinks they're above average. Driving here, I don't doubt that for a second.

Had to Google it, but that was exactly it. The professor mentioned it as an off hand comment, almost jokingly. You must've paid more attention in college than I did. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Dudes specifically. 80% rate themselves an "above average" driver. happy.gif
post #24383 of 26269
Per the Dunning-Kruger effect, I rate myself as a below average driver because I am, in fact, an above average driver.

Not hard to be an above average street driver. All you have to do is always pay attention, and I guarantee that you're already there

I'm charging next to a middle aged white couple in a Model X who obviously have no regard for their wheels - curbed into infinity before the temp tags are even off. As an outside observer, the GF is above average.

New Cadillac Escala flagship...a handsome update but seems a little late to the game.
