well i usually doubt most of what my one friend says. he had one bad experience on the internet so wont order anything ever again. pretty crazy!

he also wont do the tests at work to save 1/2 of his health insurance cost and instead pays full price. more craziness

dealers official answer is this is exactly the way this car is. they said the lack of power is normal operation and has to do with torque management. the car has to apparently think what gear to go to when you floor it.

remember the good old days when there was a cable that told your engine MOVE NOW! i long for those days. if they are gonna have to get all cars to 50 mpg in a few years i wonder what kind of crappy 'managment' they will have on our engines now. truly if you limit every car to 60 you would save so much money. why not do that to everyone?
