Its the torque and their gearing are their strong points, 3rd gear is a monster in those things. And also your statement is very similar to whatevery else says about people who drive focus's, and what people say about honda people, and so on and so on.
What hes saying is true. I wish I could count the number of times that someone has dismissed one of my comments only on the basis of what I drive.
