NAPLES, FLORIDA -- I will NEVER believe Mapquest again as long as I live!! What a screwed up business!! Yeah we get it 'free' but they get money from somewhere to put bad directions for people to use.
I drove an hour out of my way and my car is not in great shape!! I ended up in a questionable part of a town I was not familiar with.
It is NOT RIGHT for Mapquest to continue to give directions that are wrong!!
SHAME ON YOU BUNCH OF MORONS!!!

Provided Bad Info/Extra 40 Miles
Posted by LOSTUS60E on 02/25/2010
I was using Mapquest for an accurate distance to the nearest Home Depot. From my home to a location on Crismon Road in Mesa, AZ, Mapquest listed it at 94.68 miles. I found this odd considering it happens the be the same direction I drive to go to work in North Phoenix which is only 96 miles away. Looking closer at the directions provided, it tells me to TURN E ON US60 FOR 19.95 MILES. The next step tells me MAKE A U-TURN ON US60 W FOR 54.02 MILES. "A U-TURN"!!! REALLY??? If I had not known these roads, and trusted Mapquest by step, I would have traveled an additional 40 miles, and worse, US60 E/W is under construction at that step and has heavy delays. I will never trust Mapquest.
