** Fortunately, the car has an automatic transmission (or, as Lisa calls it, a PRNDLL). Unfortunately, she things the R stands for "Right ahead" and the D stands for "Don't go forward".

* Inadvertently invoked in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrKaQRIXPNw this commercial]] for a women only car insurance company. Three women singing about how women are safer drivers and deserve lower premiums, while driving a pink convertible is made all the more hilarious by the fact that they don't watch the road, hold the steering wheel (instead, waving their arms in the air in time to the song), or even notice that for much of it the car is in ''reverse'' (watch the scenery going by), and at one point allow [[TooDumbToLive a kangaroo to drive]].

** Cameron Diaz was also the fastest driver in the Cee'd, for all of ninety seconds... until TomCruise absolutely ''demolished'' her time. It was also revealed before her lap that she was also a rather good stunt driver, with footage of her doing doughnuts with a car while Jezza was her passenger.

* Definitely averted (or subverted?) in 1914 silent ''Mabel at the Wheel'', starring Mabel Normand, who stands in for her boyfriend in a car race after he gets kidnapped by the villain (unusually played by CharlieChaplin)- and, despite his attempts to thwart her at every turn, wins.
