Gas MPG is pretty good. It was fun to drive. And super safe. But that ride...


Did you get that minivan yet? Resistance is futile!! Once you get it, you'll wonder how you ever got along with out it.

My folks have a mini-van and every time I go home I loath to drive it...Not having a car...but when I do rent one, it's the absolute smallest one that they've got available (HINT to car rental companies - don't upgrade me - SMALLER is what I want). I find driving a mini-van akin to driving a battleship!

Well, when I have to drive around my two kids, my wife, my friend and sometimes my mom, I love it. Especially when I'm doing renos on my house and stuff, I love it even more. But, yes, one day soon I'll get my Bimmer back. I'm looking at an X3 .

Ran across this article about a new type of tire (tyre).....Looks like a great improvement over today's tires...indestructible ~ but probably a bumpy ride.... Any reason (other than the price) why we've not seen these on the road for commercial/private use?
