going back to the original topic before we detoured into how many ferraris and rolexes we can afford -- as an american driver, i never noticed driving style associated with a particular brand of car. even tricked-out rice burners are slow and courteous at times, at least here in new york city. i have, however, noticed regional differences: in NYC, people drive fast and aggressively, but they tend to drive AROUND you, so to speak, if you're in their way; in jersey and boston, they're fast and asses about it -- they expect you to get out of their way instead of going around you (plus jersey drivers seem especially happy to cut you off, more so than anywhere else i've driven); in the maryland/virginia/DC area, people are generally timid, unskilled, and slow -- and perpetually hog the left lane at 55mph. of all the places i've lived and driven (see above), the DC area has been the most stressful and frustrating traffic-wise.
but like i said, these are regional differences. about the only thing i can say about VW drivers is that jetta drivers have tended to be hot girls [:D]
