Is it just me, or is the site going quite slow at the moment?

So many people on the forums can have its downsides as well, or maybe living on an island in the middle of nowhere with mediocre weather just means my international internet bandwidth sucks today.

As a general rule, "Not so much". Women make the majority of car purchase decisions in the U.S. and is the U.S. fleet really getting more efficient?

Status and following the herd are on top of the list, followed by *perceived* comfort, then *perceived* safety, then somewhere down around #23 is fuel efficiency.

Across the street from me, there are 3 houses, left and middle one have matching silver Ford Territories (midsize SUV), and the middle and right one have matching Suzuki Swift Sports. Every time I look out the window and see the cars there, I can't help but laugh.
