I agree that cars have personalities and resemble their owner, when we first got ours (36k miles in eight years let you know) it didnt like to go in any hurry and about a week after we bought it it would love to go. When we first bought it to pass a car on a two lane HWY you would have to floor it before you left the lane to get moving. Now it has to be in the other lane when you floor it. We had gotten used to the floor it and give it a sec. and one day we did this and just about ran the Crown Vic off the road and we were about 2 car lengths away. So yes I think they have a personality.
LOL, this same thing happened to me before but because i dont have a center console i was able to wiggle and turn to the side and SQUEEZE out the other side..took all but 45 mins and i was inside a locked garage at -3* if i had a console i probably woulda been a goner lmao. but yeah, i do that seat down and then tilt and lay backward thing its quite weird...it..smells different down...there.
