I have been car shopping for a couple of weeks now. I’d like it used, '16 or newer. I want a land yacht- smooth riding, comfortable, quiet, with enough power to handle the Appalachian Foothills parkway and Monteagle. Well, three out of four are easily found. So far, I have driven Lincolns, Buicks, Ford Tauruses, Cadillacs, a Nissan Maxima, a Lexus or two, and Chevy Impalas.
What amazes me is the lack of cushioning in the driver’s seats of these cars. They all have been ergonomically shaped, I suppose, but it doesn’t matter how smooth and quiet the ride is if the seats are hard as bleachers. Four hours into a ten hour trip and my backside’s gonna be screaming. I want my '82 Coupe Deville seats!!
The '18 Impala I drove today had the best seats, probably tied with the Lexuses. I refuse to buy any European car due to their shoddy reliability records of late.
Mainly, I just wanted to let off steam, but I’ll take suggestions. I haven’t tried any Chrysler products. Any input on them?
