I don't really care about what car I drive, but at my last job we got to take the Tesla Roadster out for a test drive. It was quite nice, though it feels weird when you're used to noisy cars and you suddenly drive something that makes about as much noise as a bike. [link]
Basically, someone will complain about commuting by car, then it is usually the case that a UK person might reply about how traveling by public transportation is much better in just about every aspect and how driving a personal car with no one is horrible in a lot of ways. This makes no sense when anything related to cars in a balanced view usually comes from the UK or anyone with a British accent.
And yes, I did exaggerate it, but the mentality has come up quite often.
