    That cruise control doesn't keep a constant speed driving down grades. I miss my Optima for that only reason.

    At least in Ohio, rollers aren't used as much anymore. Since most cars on the road these days have OBDII it is a simple matter to see if the Check Engine Light/Malfunction Indicator Light is on. If the vehicle's OBDII reports a problem with it's emissions equipment, it will turn on this lamp.

    1 - Wandering steering wheel center.
    2 - Road noise inside cabin.

    That's what I call a relentlessly positive attitude )

    Yeah, it's from personal experience. I had a car (well, not a car per se but a CJ7) that would wander on rutted roads. There was no resting & relaxing on those trips. And no radio either to drown out the road noise.

    Best vehicle ever.

    They used to do the dyno-based / sniffer emissions test here in Ontario. But they switched to an OBD-II check last year. I think part of the reason was the amount of variability in the results were pissing off too many voters. A car could fail one day, then pass on another day with no changes being made.

    Computer/OBD test is black & white.

    I hate how the sun visor isn't really flush with the ceiling, so it may be wobbling depending on how rough the road is. Doesn't make it better that I'm tall, had to attach velcro to keep it from moving around.

    The biggest annoyance for me is the inability to put my hand in the lower center of the steering wheel. Sometimes I like to drive with one hand and I hate having a bar where my hand likes to be. I'd rather go on a long drive in a Metro.
