Lounge For casual talk about things unrelated to General Motors. In other words, off-topic stuff. And anything else that does not fit Section Description.

I found my way to a nice 2003 SSEi thanks to Mapquest!

They've only been inaccurate two times for me over the past 4 years. I usually read over the directions and if something sounds confusing I know something is wrong. Sometimes a direction will simply say to "Take the Exit" but not tell you where, what exit, right or left, etc.

But I check with Yahoo Maps to see the differences between both, if any.

So far I've never had a problem with mapquest but I will say I am very leary of those sites. I was really hoping when we went to CT., that they were right. But it all turned out alright.
