  I've noticed how most of the newer cars are this way.  Either that or the 
roads or I am getting really bad!  Dad's old Mercedes would just go 
straight down the road.  Even after 3 almost "totals" of the car, it still 
did better staying on the road than most newer cars.  My 66 Mustang 
stayed in the lane better even and they were no feat of engineering.  
Glad to hear someone other than me has noticed that the least bit 
of inattention starts sending you off the road.
  Dad's Ford pu is a real piece of work. You can't keep it straight in the 
lane unless you do like in the old movies.  Keep bouncing the steering 
wheel back and forth at a rythmic pace.  Then it's not so bad.  Might 
try that Nate.  It looks and feels silly but it sure saves your sanity when 
driving THAT thing!
