    Yes, but it's offset by the fact that I hate Canadians. :icon_mrgr

      if you go for a volvo, you can go and buy one in sweden and take a vacation at the same time you pick up your car. They have a bunch of incentives as well.

        I have a theory about Volvo drivers.

        Now understand my context. When I used to ride a motorcycle(5 years) I found Volvo drivers to be the most dangerous people on the road. If I came up on one of these soccermoms I immediately spotted that 740 wagon from a mile away. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES get close to this vehicle. They drove with both hands on the wheel looking straight ahead, moving their eyes only enough to check their mirrors before changing lanes. Motorcycles often do not appear in those windows. As a motorcyclist you take special care to watch people's heads as you pass. In addition, to make a right hand turn they first must come to a complete stop, look both ways twice, ensure the signal is on twice and proceed to crawl into the intersection or parking lot. You may think I am absolutely crazy, but over 5 years I had at LEAST a dozen close calls and one accident with them.

        In short, Volvo drivers are bad drivers. They tout that engineering and safety standard as their banner. You know WHY they need that extra safety? BECAUSE THEY ARE BAD DRIVERS AND CAUSE FUCKING ACCIDENTS!!!!

        Now I did see a hip little sporty Audi lookin Volvo on the road. It almost tripped me up. Doesn't matter. It's just a bad driver in a sportier car.

            and who ever said that a 98 dodge pickup is worth 40000, hell in these times people are throwing away cars like that. whats that thing get like 14 miles to the gallon on the highway.

            pretty soon rappers will stop talking about rim size and itll be all about the mpg.

            BTW, my Ram is totally worth 40000 dollars. It has a CD PLAYER for God's sake. You don't just find that option on any car. Did I mention the air conditioning? Oh wait I probably didn't cause it doesn't work. Ill go down to 39,500 then.

              It's funny you should mention riding - my dad rode for years as well and his one and only accident was the following:

              "There I was behind this volvo who all of a sudden jammed on their brakes after passing me on a local road outside Freeport (Maine). I had two choices, dump the bike or go over the trunk. I chose the former and ended up with several broken ribs."

              He also hated minivans with a passion.

              I mentioned the volvo because Jenfucius actually wants to spend that much on a car - volvo drivers are irritating, self important bastards. The only thing worse than a volvo driver is an SUV driver - those motherfuckers are convinced that 1) they're special 2) are paranoid and are convinced someone else is going to hit them so goddmanit they gotta be prepared! 3) think 4 wheel drive and antilock brakes replace driving skill(like volvo drivers). I drive 95 and 84 a lot, and every trip has at least 2 accidents involving SUVs and some unfortunate idiots who get caught near them.

              Saabs suck too - the transmissions are either excellent, or chew themselves to pieces - I can do without that unpredictability, thank you.

                Get a hybrid. OR a PURE electric car. Then you can change your name to "electro" or "buzz".
