View Full Version : Toyotas to the left of me, Toyotas to the right...

At the end of our ride Sunday Fishman and me ended up at Main St. in Ann Arbor and M-14. He took M-14 to 23 North, I debated M-14 to 23 South, but decided to take Main down to Depot St and cut across the north side of town, pick up Geddes and take it to 23 South. The ride along Fuller/Geddes is nice, a lot like Huron River Drive.

I make the turn off Depot on to Fuller and find myself surrounded by Toyotas. I had Prius to my right, a Corolla behind me, and Sequoia SUV in front of me.

"CRAP! Which one has brake problems? Which one has accelerator problems? Is the SUV one of the recalled ones?. Ok, I know the Corolla has accelerator problems so I don't want it behind me, but so does the Prius. The Prius also has brake problems, so I don't want it behind me on two counts. It can go as fast as it wants as long as it's ahead of me. The SUV...can't recall, don't care at this point because it's ahead of me."

I got behind the Prius.....:p

Stupid Ann Arborites.

And to top it off, the entrance ramp to US23 was closed due to construction. I shoulda' just took M-14.

I rode with a girl from work to lunch the other day in her Prius and I asked her before I got in if it was going to stop. She was so offended!!!! I thought it was a legitment question.

I think it's just the Corolla...the Camry...and the Prius that have issues. My mom has a RAV4 and my sister has a Highlander and neither one of them have heard so much as "boo!". Originally my mom was looking at the Escape, and my sister the Explorer... but Toyota had better "quality" ratings so they went that way. Now I get to mess with them both..."Oh...you get your recall notice yet? Gee...bet that Escape/Explorer sure is looking good now! Oh...I'll drive, I don't have a deathwish." ...I'm such a dickhole. LoL
