Almost wrecked my ICE today after a week of Roadster driving

    I took delivery of a CPO Roadster last week and have been driving it exclusively for a week (700 miles so far). Unfortunately I'm in outside sales and had to pile on 600 miles in two days so it was back to my '11 Taurus... Boo. Imagine my surprise when regenerative breaking doesn't kick in as I'm coasting into a cloverleaf exit ramp at 55 mph... Yikes!! Happened twice today!! Needless to say, I can't wait to get home to ditch this beast for the roadster again!!!

    Hah! Yeah, first time I got into my Jeep Liberty after driving the Roadster for awhile I thought the accelerator was stuck on and my heart skipped a beat before I realized I had to actually press the brake pedal to slow down. Welcome to the club!
