    1 & 2

    3 wouldonly make sense if the car refused to go because it felt the journey was beneath it.

    Thanks Tdol, and believe me I got a car like that. It even thinks that the road is beneath it.
    (Actually, I don't have a car, only a bicycle, but it is delusional and sometimes takes itself for a car and sometimes for a ride... OK OK I'll cut it out).
