First off, I'm so with you about the 85 thing... I'm SO BAD when it comes to speeding in this car. I think it's the quietness factor. IN my old car, when you were at 80mph it sounded like it. When you're at 80 in the Lex it sounds like 25mph. Knock on wood, I've never been pulled over, even though I routinely pass cars like they were standing still on the highways around here.

As far as the skidding thing, I see this posted about 2 times a week and I think it's all due to people hitting the gas too hard, plain and simple. It's not a flaw of the car design so much as the way the car is marketed IMHO
