What do you think?

Not sure if this the right forum for this but what do you think about people that drive chevy's, dodge's, and even ford's? Why I ask, because I always seem to get the most (4 letter word that starts with S) from chevy drivers and about 5 min. ago one tried running me off the road and all I'm trying to do is get home.

I have had run ins with azzhat drivers of nearly every type of vehicle. Haven't had much trouble with being run off the road, etc. I will agree, that the dmax guys seem to have the biggest attitudes, at least in the areas where I've been.

I have not had real problems from anyone. Yet. If I had to choose the Dodge guys seem pretty bad, but that may be swayed by my experience with Dodge. Mine was crap, so anyone that is high on them makes me a bit curious

I'm not trying to put anyone or truck down I just want to read about what people think of people that drive other vehicles. I do agree that Dura's have the biggest attitudes though. If you have something positive to say go for it.

I think we only notice the "bad ones". if we're driving home and pass a Dodge and nothing happens, we don't even notice. But if we passed a Chevy and the driver was acting stupid, we'd notice and say something.

There are good and bad drivers for all brands, we only notice the bad drivers. i'm sure there are enough Ford drivers with attitudes, but maybe we notice them less because Ford drivers are nicer to Ford drivers, in the same way Chevy drivers are nicer to each other.

When my mum had her BMW, you noticed that some drivers wouldn't let you pull out in traffic, but other BMW drivers would.

it's all very strange to me.

Yeah, I agree, 2.2. Doesn't matter the brand, there are a bunch of AZZhat's out there. Just give em some room and pray to God that they don't hurt anyone.

I agree I've seen owners of all brands being azzhats. I'd like to see that d-max try to run me off the road. The look on his face when my big bottomed F-350 starts in his lane would be priceless!!

In all reality, I haven't had any issues with Diesel drivers being retarded...I get a lot of dirty looks from Ricers though. It's the people, not their cars that give 'em a bad name. There was a D-Max kid back about a year ago before I had ANY work done to my truck who was being a nerd...but I just let it go...I could see the programmer in the windshield and I'm no moron. All I was looking for was a bar!
