This thread sounds like blame the gun, not the shooter.

Well if its the gun is used mostly by terrorists to torture innocent civilians (AK47), it gains a bad name .

Why do people get intimated by bigger vehicles? Anyways even if a bigger vehicles hits your car according the warped logic our public uses the bigger vehicle is always at fault.

You have to die to enjoy public wrath on bigger vehicle, and have to be riding a two wheeler.
When two 4 wheelers collide, public just watches tamasha.

Mouthshut reviews ? LOL.

There are Mitsubushi lancer / cedia owners on mouthshut who think they own the misubishi Evo IX or X. May be we should take that also as benchmark.

A combination of aggressive drivers and large car can result in rash driving. The scorpio sells a lot so the probability of finding aggressive drivers is obviously higher than finding aggressive drivers in Safari. BTW, I find similar situation (rash driving) exists with Innovas, Sumos and the like.

Going out and generalizing aggressive behavior attributes to all owners of a vehicle is irrational and downright rude.

Scorpio Owners,

Now that you have been declared terrorists, in addition to being brain dead, dont be surprised if you are arrested for treason tonight.

Reason for arrest ? Are you serious ? you bought a car which is supposed to topple even when parked and you are still alive ?? If your scorpio is still parked rightside up , when you wake up in the morning, you had it. That should be a sufficient reason to be hanged .

And why are youguys called brain dead ? Becuse in mouthshut one Cedia owner delares "Cedia is a car with brains," . So everyone else and everything else must be braindead. LOL.

I once used this trick on a Lancruiser of a politico. He had a Gypsy pace car with overhead lights. All cops everywhere stopped traffic to let him go. Turns out both of us were going to the airport and we got there in no time.

Well it shows that you are just a kid. When you truly become a great driver, you will realise at that time that other people are good too. I also read what you do if a Scorpio comes from behind. You let him pass and keep him in front instead of passing it the minute you had a chance ?

I will tell you something more and do answer truely to what you think.

The Chevorlet Corvette. It is a Muscle Car. Can it hold on it's own on a track ?

You could have been pulled over for endangering the life of the politician.

Arrow Anti-scorpio campaign

From the intensity of the hate campaign against scorpio it looks like;

-the competitors are worried of the increasing sale & have placed their stooges to post here or
-there are real scorpio haters net worked to whip up a campaign against it or
- there are some idiots who would post anything without thinking or
- the scorpio is for BRAIN-DEAD people
& we have so many zombies driving this suv

Now which one is true is not difficult to guess?

I dont think anyone hates the scorpio, its the way they are used, that causes all the heartburn. actually i would like to own one myself. inspite of that, i have made statements on this thread against scorpio drivers.

I am very much a kid when it comes to driving. Come on i just started driving 6 years ago and i know i have a long way to go pal! I love cars just like any kid u come across! In fact I love the kid in me and thats one thing i will always keep alive in me! So i would take what you said as a compliment.
And i am here to learn, evolve and thus become a better driver as well, never mind great one! And better/GREAT driving is to be exhibited on tracks not on roads. On road, a great driver is one who can safely drive giving maximum comfort to those along with him too IMHO. I rarely compete on the road.
I saw a video on you tube about the new corvette and I think my opinion doesn't matter with that car! Its a world class winner, though a little raw in handling. i don't know about the corvette apart from that, please enlighten me with your point.And Corvette is a muscle car? ( i really didn't know that i t was)
As for scorpio, I still maintain its not a great handler.
