I need a car

I'm looking into some kind of reliable, uninteresting car. Today I was reading up on the Nissan Altima. I had good luck with the Sentra when I was in college. Anyways, while reading the packages one thing jumped out: "8-way adjustable driver seat."

Eight ways? You only need six dimensions to define an object in space (3 for the position, and 3 for the orientation). My god, the Altima's driver seat can transport you through time!

{Correction: It turns out the the extra adjustments are for lumbar support. Now whenever a scifi mentions the fourth dimension, you know they really mean lumbar support.}
