Shopping for a car follow up - Honda, Lexus, Audi, Hyundai, Nissan, Buick, etc

As a follow up to the 2/17 comment "Shopping for a car", the quest is over. There is one correction to that post that must be made. The salesmen that I met over the last three weeks were for the most part really nice people. Apart from the ogres mentioned in the previous post, they were pleasant regular folks who did not push anything that was inappropriate. They were just doing their jobs in the way that their institution requires. Even the sign out which usually involves a pitch for all kinds of add-ons:("crystal fusion coating"; "xylilon x4 protection"; "lo-jack"; "laser diffuser" etc.) - you get the picture, the final moments were low key and the sales guy just expected a turn down on all of this sticker inflator stuff.

I enjoyed meeting the group , and whenever sometime in the the distant future for us or near term future for the young adults a car is needed, I know who to contact.

Now the challenge is adapting to the technology of the car which is like a computer on wheels. It talks to me, responding to questions, directions, weather, and more. For the moment I am totally intimidated.
