:thumbsup I agree, there wasn't any tension like that Seinfeld where Kramer drove Jerry's Saab until it ran out of fuel.

Not sure what the guy meant by "If you're trying to make a pass at 80 -- all that get up and go -- well, it got up and went. And passes at 80MPH can be pretty scary in this car." Is that bad or is that good? It sounded like it's meant to be bad -- since it seems that he was contrasting get up and go around town to highway passing.

Having my car for about a month, I didn't really have much of a problem passing at 80MPH -- the car just goes -- no big whoop. While the car does seem to need to put at bit more effort in to pass at 80MPH going up a hill, the power at that point seemed more than adequate.

140 horsepower is more than adequate for passing. It's the torque and gearing that make the difference. And of course, passing at the correct spot.
