haha it was the funniest thing ive ever seen. this guy with a saturn vue )u know the sports utility thing) was tailgatininng the hell out of me this morning.. so i let him get up next to me and he kept starin me down..i looked over started laughing my ass off. i woulda taken him except my engine was still really cold and i didnt feel like pushin it.. so instead i watched him beat the piss out of his saturn.. i guess u kinda had to be there but it was pretty funny watchin him...

those 2.2's are pretty weak. my brother in law bought a 2003 cavalier with the same 2.2 (they discontinued the 2.4 that was in the Z24). i took it out for a drive on some empty back roads and was really dissapointed. the 2.0 in a neon is more responsive. 0-60 seemed to take forever. so i cant even imagine driving a VUE. it has the same engine but weighs quite a bit more. and aren't they AWD? so you also have the torque split between front and rear wheels. that's gotta suck.
