Perhaps I don't understand what is meant by 'torque steer', but I had one of these for an all-day test drive (I eventually settled on an SE), but didn't notice anything 'undriveable' about the car at all. And I was lucky enough that it rained halway through my day, so I got to drive it on both dry and wet roads: it seemed to handle perfectly fine to me. Could someone please explain what is meant by 'torque steer'? Perhaps I'm just not enough of a conoisseur to understand the term properly... -- Viktor Haag Senior Technical Writer, RIM '79 99, '89 9000T, '00 9-3 SE My opinions are my own, only.
