    Default Got my USA car hire sorted.

    Not dared to check out what the car is like - just £127 for a week including additional driver. Chebrolet Aveo was £150 including second driver, so I am bricking it.

    A Pontiac G6. I am thinking Rover Metro city for that price....

    From experience you get a lot of car for your money. The smallest we could see was a Focus or similar, I think we picked something 2nd-smallest and it was giant, the boot could fit 2 people (we tested).

    You've rented the equivalent of a Honda Accord or Ford Fusion.

    If you have never driven an automatic, you will learn to love it.

    just keep your left foot tucked out of the way. and do a few circuits of the car hire car park before you hit the new jersey turnpike

    automatics go a long way towards explaining why the yanks are such nice sedate drivers
