I've had my '03 Track since June '03. I have only had it happen at one gas station at a particular pump 3 times (I've learned my lesson!). I think it has to do with the rate of flow...? I found it was better when I rotated the nozzle about 45 degrees clockwise. It was a pain those few times...but was it really so bad you'd consider trading back for your old car?!?!?!
