Default does the 09 wagon look like a sissy car?

happened couple times already when I'm at the stop light and car next to me honks to get my attention and than the driver asks or give a gesture if he could cut in front of me to make a turn. 1st and 2nd time that happened I was like fine watever buy seems it's starting to perpetuate. Just last nite, a cab did the same so I was like Fuk u and didnt allow him to cut in front of me... Is it cuz of way the wagon looks that makes people think that I"m a total wussy driver who will let eveyone cut in front of me at a stop light?? this never happened with cars i drove before.

Consider it that your luck has ended...this happens all the time, no matter what you drive. Been in my uncles 65 vette, happened to him, too.

Is this thread real?

When someone asks to cut in front of you at a light its because they need to get in your lane, people don't do it on a whim becuase they think your driving a sissy car. If that was the case they would just try to beat you off the line and then get in your lane.

Um, I dont think this has anything to do with what you drive at all.

Next time when the light turns green match his speed and keep him next to you.

Kidding, that's rude, let the guy over damn!

How'd you feel if you needed to get over and some numbnuts next door wont let you.

They ask to cut into your lane because its a well known fact that most subaru drivers are not pricks.

If only we could put into our profile that we're from NYC so that it would show up and other users could see and not assume you're from South Dakota.........oh, wait!

There are no rational explanations for driver behaviour.

Oh! That explains a lot!

No sir, it's not your car. Those angry Italians or Polish guys are not after you because of your car.
