Default The Hyundai mod.

I just spent 2 weeks in Tucson Az driving around in a Hyundai. Nothing will make you appreciate your car more than driving a POS for a while. I even took the car on a mountain run to Mount Lemmon. If you ever are in Tucson you should head up there. I have been to the Dragon several times but found the drive to mount Lemmon to be more fun. It's more compareable to the skyway than the dragon and it has better views. And as a side benifit , when you get to the top its usually 30+ degrees cooler than it was down in Tucson. The day I drove up it was 112 in Tucson but only 75 at the top (9,000ft).


I bet Hertz is trying to figure out how the brakes pads are already worn out on a car with only 7k miles

That Hyundai couldn't have been that much of a POS if you had more fun driving it in a mountain road that your car at the dragon.

The hyundai was indeed a POS. The comparison was relative. What made the ride fun for me was that the turns were more open with clear visibilty of the road ahead. The dragon is very tight and you never know if some idiot is going to be in your lane as you come around a turn.

Obviously I would have had more fun driving my car but its a hell of a road trip to Tucson from Atlanta.
