Re: What is the worst current US Domestic Design??? (FlyRoccoFly)

You've got to be kidding... The Malibu looks good compared to 95% of the crap cars this country produces.

Let the games begin!

Re: What is the worst current US Domestic Design??? (ogmius)

Honestly I don't know why people don't like the Malibu. I never hear them whining about the Vectra or the Saab 9-3 and it's the same basic car underneath. That's really what it is - uninformed WHINING.
The worst domestic vehicle available today?
Proabably the Jeep Wrangler. It may be a great vehicle off road, but it's terrible on road, offers almost no security, and has an interior that would look right at home in a 1981 Ford Escort. Ergonomically awful, not economical, and now there are off-roaders out there that can match it on most counts.
Other potentials:
Isuzu Hombre - Essentially a ten year old S10 offered only in it's most basic form, four cylinder mini trucks that can't even hope to compete with the other Japanese brands. And it's no wonder really. Terrible to drive, slow, awful interiors, questionable quality, and resale values that are akin to cliff diving.
Chevrolet Venture/GM minivans - dated, poor safety record, negligible image, poor resale value, not alot of room for a van, and not nice to drive.
Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable - Not so great when new, now far off the pace. Mid-term facelift helped with baked-potato styling, but these are still nothing to write home about. Against an Accord and Camry that have been completely redesigned twice in the lifetime of these two models, it's no wonder why the Taurus is an also-ran these days.

Are you referring to looks alone or the whole package ??

Sorry, body design was what I was aiming at.
