Oldfarmer, I know you're interested in the Mustang ' I saw this in a GM discussion and because it lists 4 links to reviews that appear to be newly released now that Ford's embargo on 2015 information is off for the Mustang and because it's in another forum that competes with Edmunds in parts, I didn't think I should copy and quote.

    "Saw a typical PNW thing today - car gets into a turn only lane, no signal, then hits the signal after the light turns green. I have to wonder about the thought process involved, why bother?"

    Here the habit is to use the turn signal power steering assist. They seem to think it's a power assist and they turn on the turn signal as they start turning the wheel, say to the right. If you're behind, it's a surprise; if you're waiting to turn left and they're the oncoming traffic, it means you don't get notice that you could have turned left and been gone down the street. Instead their turn signal pops on as the front wheel start turning.

    Some vehicle types have a percentage of drivers who fit the discourteous stereotype.

    Today, Mazda with an air dam on the trunk uses the left turn lanes only ramp off the interstate,
    then at the end of the line cuts into the right turn lane. The right turn lane is backed up a quarter mile onto the interstate. This is at lunchtime, so it probably was someone wanting to get to the many restaurants and carryout places on the strip next to the interstate.

    Got the Chick-Fil-A and it has entry off an access street behind the store. People line up in the direction that comes from the east to make a left turn across the alley into drive-thru. A car from the west somehow ends up making a turn in front of the cars from the east and is sitting block both lanes of the "street" for 3-4 minutes until the drive-thru line moves again. Brand of car? A Mazda that's a few years old just like the one on the interstate ramp.

    "Road trip" to El Paso (about 40 or so miles down the road). Note that I'm in the far right lane - I accidentally drove into Juárez 40 years ago and I didn't want to make that mistake again.
    That means you're a fast learner!

    BTW, is this the exit that the marine took who had 3 guns and he's still being held in Mexico?

    You'd drive a car like that in the snow?
    Gotta get to Krogers somehow. :grin :)
