Bela makes a good point, (on top of him having outstanding car) if this was done on FJ with the same three cars it wouldn't even be a contest as he has 1000 more posts there than S2 has here (which doesn't even seem possible) and has a dedicated following, as he should.
Ride of the year is a point of view that not everyone will agree on, I don't think anyone thought there would be a consensus or there would have been no point in voting. S2, Bela and the rest of the ROTM winners put a lot of time and money into their rides and spent the time on the boards and got recognized. To those that say there are better sedans, all I can say is get them on the boards, we all like nice cars!
