    yeah in europe it is better to leave the suv at home, in the US if you arent in a suv you will get driven off the highway. plus parking in europe sucks so a smart would be perfect

    And yes a custom 70s factory Cadillac limousine is going to be smoother than a Range, it is smoother than a Range Rover, but US roads are different to the ones in the UK. A 1970s cadillac is all well and good here until you turn a corner......
    My '76 limo is, of course, a factory limo. Not a stretch or custom.
    And it actually handles quite well. I can take a curve posted at 35 mph at 45 mph easily, even 50 mph if I want to push it that hard. As long as my limo handles well in normal or slightly above-normal driving, I'm satisfied.

    I am unsure if the one i drove was a factory car or not. It felt well made though. Aso some curves in America can take 10 minutes to go around

    In a tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler, maybe; not in a factory Cadillac.

    Still maybe five, in comparison there is a corner on the way to my mothers house, on a dualled piece of road, that "recommends" 40mph, i have taken it at 120 in my BMW, wouldnt fancy it in a caddy...... ANY caddy.

    I love them, but they are hardly sporting cars, or handlers in any way, i consider the STS to be a boat for these roads......

    Well, simply put, your roads suck and ours are better.

    They arent on. Under the printed label is a red, green, or orange light.
