"To infinity... and beyond!" This line is one of my favorite lines in... ahem... movie history. Well, that and "In Sicily, women are more dangerous than shotguns." Yes, I'm a big fan of Toy Story and The Godfather... ahem... what can I say? Also, when I was younger... and poorer, I had a college friend who used to own a Hyundai with an Infinity audio system. I remember the audio system was the only thing drawing me to ride in that car, since everything else about it was... ahem... poop.
Anyway, about this Infiniti now. Don't get me wrong, I actually liked the car. The way it looks, the way it... ahem... handles and everything. I can find two major problems with it though. First of all, the name is simply idiotic. Why would anyone found a car company with a name that's... ahem... a misspelled word?
I mean, what if I started a car company with the name Londom, in... London, UK? Oh, and don't even get me started on that logo. They say it symbolizes the "open road traveling toward infinity". It also suggests Mount Fuji. Yeah, right. Maybe if it had been drawn by a three-year old suffering from autism and... ahem... with his eye covered in jello. Come on, it's just an inverted "V" inside an oval, for crying out loud!
Second of all, they call themselves a premium car maker, right? Can someone tell me when did that happen? The company itself is twenty years old. I have cavities older than that! How can they consider themselves premium when... ahem... they don't even have a history? That's so absurd it's making my ears bleed.
Getting back to the car now, there were a few things I actually liked. For example, the intelligent cruise control is actually pretty useful, especially if you're a slothful... ahem... person like myself. The only thing missing from it would have been an automatic steering feature and a massage function for the... ahem... seats. Which it didn't, or otherwise I would have actually given it a chance.
