In Reply to: 540 owners-How often do you nail the accelerator ? posted by Mike C. on November 21, 2000 at 15:26:12:
I only nail it about once a week. And I've only had the car for two months! Usually I only floor it at above 60 mph.
Yes, the car is not as fast as when I bought it. ut that because it handles speed so well. Travelling in less than 90 mph seems like idleing. I usually go between 70 and 90, sometimes 100 mph. Depends on the traffic of course.
Fact is that it is too fast for ordinary traffic (in my opinion)!
Do you still enjoy it or have you gotten used to it and just drive it like a normal car?
Does the car feel slow once you get used to it ?
I have to drive the wife's corolla on the weekends so that I can appreciate my car a little more.
I guess its time to find new way to get my thrills...
