The car was always trying to correct for what the bad alignment was doing.

Before the end of the summer you will love the ventilated seats. I may never buy a car without that option.
Agree on ventilated seats. I never wanted them before but having experienced it now its really nice on hot days. It is kind of an odd sensation though

And you really want to be expecting it before it happens.

When it first turns on, I always think I wet myself (not that that EVER happens).
The 911 has it, but it sucks air in vs blowing out. I had it on some ford rentals and they blow ice cold air on you. Really feels uhhhh moist at first.
