Well my DD was a LS430 so yes you are right. For a performance car the GT350 rides wonderfully.I think it depends on what you are used to driving. We have terrible roads in CT too, but this car is much more comfortable than my C7/Z51/Magride, Focus RS (the dampening in this car was terrible), or STI. I think the suspension and heaviness play a big role, but even the gearbox is really easy to use in traffic. Tires are a big part of it though and you can always find a less aggressive tire for the streets that will reduce tramlining, and have a smoother ride.
