    So far no problems.

    I also have a 2001 Ford Focus, but I don't think I have any pix of her online.

    I had one of those in silver, but just traded it in for a charcoal gray 2006 Mercury Mariner Premier.

    I like it a lot.

    I also have a 2006 Hyundai Elantra. But really, that car's really not picture worthy. But it get's me to work and back and that's really all I care about. Oh, and the ten year warranty is awesome.

    My friend has an Accent. Obviously it's the anti-bling car, but it gets him to work and around town. That's what my Focus is...just a basic, inexpensive car.

    I'm not really in the market for another vehicle, but if I was and price was my number one concern, several of the Hyundai's would be at the top of my list. And before anyone laughs, their quality has been pretty good in recent years. Of course another Focus would be one of my top candidates as well.

    As I was walking to my Escape after work, I *thought* I saw one of the new Accord's parked next to me, but upon closer inspection it was actually a Sonata. I sorta checked it out and it definately didn't look like a Korean cheapo car.

    I thought you "retired"?

    I'm sorry, I couldn't help but notice that the steering wheel is on the wrong side of your car ;)
    After 30 years that still throws me off every time. Thank god I've never had to drive in the UK.

    For me, I sense the problem would rather be the position of the gear stick.

    Its not so much the position of the gearshift... I once drove a X racer Escort that was built up as a right driver - its the shifting pattern... no matter what, your brain doesn't translate it.

    The picture doesn't do it justice

    I believe there are currently 3 or 4 countries that still drive on the left side. There used to be more in Europe, but when Germany invaded and took over several of them were forcibly switched overnight, and never changed back.

    I might just be me or does Japan drive on the left?

    Japan also drives on the left.

    A country like Ghana did switch overnight from left to right, but of course the UK does have a much denser road infrastructure.

    Most former British colonies drive on the left, at least ones that were colonies when cars arrived in the early 20th century. So Australia, India, plenty of countries in the Caribbean (British VI, Caymans, Bahams) and Africa (Kenya, Zimbabwe). Japan also drives on the left. A couple of Scandanavian countries switched from left to the right in the middle ofthe 20th century.

    Nice to meet an Olds man. My first was a '67 cutlass four door. I also briefly had a '68 2 door - rocket 350 V8, IIRC. Fun car to drive. Wet night, low visibility, wrapped it around the back end of a poorly lit truck back in 1984 -- there's more to the story but I'm lucky to have walked away. The car, however, not so lucky.
