    Ive had the X for all of 2 days and had to drive my wife's car today. I got into the car and the gas light was on and had to go to a gas station. I also had to close my own door :( Then I actually had to turn the thing on and felt super cramped , especially above my head. Then when I went to slowdown I let off the gas and nothing happened. I also had to deal with engine noise.

    When I got to work I got out of the car and walked away and realized the car was still on and that I had forgotten to lock it.

    Meanwhile, in wife land I got the following texts:

    Is there an off button after going into park??

    So starting the car took me a few minutes. Parallel park was a Fail after 5 mins. I got out of the car almost shaking paranoid and scared and sweaty hahahaha

    No idea how to lock the car now

    The wife and I decided to take the convertible on a date, pulled on to the highway, about halfway to our destination I get an engine warning to add 2 quarts of oil, engine is at minimum level :mad: had to detour to the stealership and get the oil topped off although we had a full tank of gas! The car is only 1 yr old.:rolleyes:

    Funny stories but what it really shows is just how old fashion ICEs, something that many people don't realize. Yet.
