I 4 one am so happy 2 that the Ford Aerostar went away. What a horrible contraption. Heavy transmission killing hulk of a body,teent tiny 14 inch wheels. Worse than the 1st gen Transport,APV,and Oldmobile thingy looks. What an awful awful beast.

In case you haven't seen it already, you might also want to check out this GMI topic. Lots of losers there, but the topic is limited to American cars...

I'm still debating this in my head, but the joke I'm most thinking about is the BMW X3, an S"U"V with reportedly good handling, but, as Edmund's reports, very little actual Utility, and an awful lot of the same plastic that people have criticised GM of having.

Hopefully, it's enough plastic on the front bumper to remind people of the overpriced RAV-4 that it so closely resembles, but, reported road manners aside, it's still a bargain-basement BMW compact S"U"V meant to be purchased because of its badge, not because of any real use that it might have.

I already hate this thing.

Since GM didn't see fit to change the interior or exterior or much else since 1996 or something, I'm glad the Astro is on its way out. No more dinosaurs on GM dealer lots, please.

I'd also like to see the Taurus go away or be redesigned.

Civics. I hate Civics. Actually, any Honda for that matter. Most Toyotas too. I'm not trying to be an import-hater, but its hard not to be with the ugly-*** cars these companies are putting out, and all the dang ricers out there.

I know they're not cars, but I'd also like the import-biased auto press go away too.

Isn't the Ford Futura replacing the Taurus?

Nope, last I heard Ford will keep the Taurus around until 2007, catering mainly to Fleet/Rental sales. :blink:

I wonder if they will keep the NASCAR name "Taurus" even after the car becomes the rental fleet special.

Before it even comes out, I wish the Aveo would go away. What a waste of space on the road. Has to be the goofiest looking thing out there(dont get me started on the "Xtreme" version either). Other cars I wish would go away are the Element, the Scion, and the Honda Civic.

On my wish list, I wish GM would redesign the rear and front fascia of the GMC Canyon and the Colorado. They look too disproportinate for my likings. It looks like they slapped a narrowed silverado nose on an S-10 frame. The cab looks way too outta place in comparison with the nose until you get to the crewcab model.

Poor Aztek. It doesn't even have the dignity of folks spelling its name properly when they're slamming it. :(

Am I the only sucker who actually likes that vehicle? :unsure:

The Aztek is not the best looking thing on the road... but ive seen uglier.

both of the scions or whatever they are called.. the xA and xB.. especialy the xB... that thing is just flat out ugly... looks like afterbirth.

others... the Aveo is ugly.. that needs to be gone asap.. And the Ion.. well, the jury is still out on that one... I just dont understand the lines on that car.. that archway that leads to the C pillar... there are like 5 different lines in one intersection... looks like the desingers kinda forgot about that part of teh car.
