"My 2009 Pure had the clutch problem and a transmission error code problem. The clutch had problems when the dealer took it for a test drive , it came back on a tow truck. Talk about luck... Both items were repaired and I couldn't be happier.…"

"The progressive delay I'm talking about has a direct connection to acceleration. So therefore the fact that your Corvette does 30 mpg on the highway at 70 mph has nothing to do with this effect that I'm talking about. Also No, I don't…"

"You must be right; only 30 mpg at 70 mph with a 405+ hp engine - crappy gas mileage. And that Chevy 350 block - just falls apart after a couple hundred thousand miles. :) "

"Well that's a different story, the corvette is not quite tuned for fuel efficiency or longevity. The DBW system is simply used for such things as ease of production and traction control systems in that case. "

"Kris, just remember the Power Booster doesn't boost power; it apparently increases accelerator pedal sensitivity but will not change transmission shift parameters or increase engine horsepower. "

"Not sure I agree; can't speak to those car makers but our 03 Corvette is drive by wire and there is no "delay to reduce hotrodding around" in that system. Press the pedal and it goes. YMMV. "

"No matter how hard you press the gas pedal, no matter how fast, Drive by wire systems are engineered to reduce wear and tear by "hotrod-ing" around, and more importantly fuel economy. This is achieved by progressively delaying throttle…"

"Yes, the discussion was SUPPOSED to be about mileage, until you started off throwing insults at the car and certain people who own one. So yes, let's DO stick to the subject, shall we? You seem like such an angry person. I feel bad for you.…"

About Me
I was an avid outdoor person until hurt my back in a car accident (I know, everyone is asking me why in heaven's name am I driving a smart, but I figure if I get in a wreck, I'll be a goner anyway, so might as well go for broke!). Had horses all my life - but now my SMART is kind of like a horse - it gets "rubbed down" after every ride, and so fun to drive.
My smart's name
BENZBBY only because everything I picked was already taken
