Vehicle update

Monday, the Batmobile went into the shop and now I’m driving a shiny red Pontiac G6. In roughly 2 weeks, I should have a far less dented car back. The rental… it’s ok; the blue car has nothing to worry about. I’m really looking forward to getting my 5-speed back: this G6 has too much Random Speed installed.

    April 28th, 2007 at 10:20 I had a G6 while visiting Seattle. It had a crazy hard down-shift. I couldn’t find a middle ground between “Am I even accelerating? Hope that semi slows down…” and “I didn’t really want to rear-end that car. Sure had space before the down-shift.” But that may just mean I’m a crappy driver.

    The most frustrating thing about that car was the glossy leather on the shelf behind the rear seats. I like being able to look in arear-view mirror without getting blinded by reflections…

    May 1st, 2007 at 10:11 I’m getting the same shifting thing! It’s really fun when getting onto I-285, since the Random Speed seems most apparent between 50 and 60. I’m really looking forward to getting the Mazda3 back (and I’m sure you were happy to get back to yours!)
