Those are incredibly mushy, but the Continental of a few years earlier is
even mushier. Huge pigs wallowing all over the road... you could
drive right over the curb and not know it because the suspension is
so soft. And you probably will since there's so much backlash in
the steering.

To OP

Touring is the term. Like taking a Sunday drive with all the people cussing
behind you.
