2012 Fiat 500 Sport: Prius Pacers
May 04, 2011
Ah, America. You have got to be big to win respect in this country. The Fiat 500 is not big, and there are not yet very many of them, so it gets dissed.
Prius drivers look over at the Fiat 500 on the freeway and quickly decide that they have finally found a car that they do not have to be afraid of. They dont race you exactly, but instead pace you, so you cant slide past or even slide over. This is worse than racing, because it forms a rolling road block.
A Volvo cut me off today as well, barging into the slot in front of me as we lined up for an off-ramp. Whats next, a Sienna driver flipping me off in his rear-view mirror?
Am going to have to start driving like an Italian.
