I think swearing at it would probably be a good call for some of us.
But yeah...any takers on this one? Any type of verbal response to the van at any time. (No I won't think your mad LOL)

P.s Thanks for the emailed responses too.

i swear at my van, but rarely say nice things outloud


I dont think i`m actually talking to the van, my swearing is in much the same way i`d be talking if i hit my thumb with a hammer

i may have muttered the odd nice word to the van over the short time i've been behind the wheel.... :oops:

still that does not make up for the 6 months of swearing at and occasionally whacking with a hammer during the baptism of fire that was getting it road worthy :roll:

My first beetle used to struggle going uphill, especially if there were passengers in it so I would encourage them to lean forwards and encourage her to make it up the hill! It always worked!
