    And then today, someone in one of those new, little Toyotas was driving
    annoyingly slow in the left lane. It made me want to yell, "Get your
    Yaris out of the way!" (Did the marketers consider how such a model
    name would be heard by someone accustomed to a British or Austrailan
    accent?)

    Some other cars, I'd avoid: The Pontiac Solstice (meaning = "sun
    standing still", so I''d expect it to break down alot). Also, the
    Chrysler Crossfire. (I wouldn't want to get caught in that!)

    Wonder how many male owners of the Ford Probe received slaps in the mug
    for promoting their cars?

    I always got a chuckle out of the Chevrolet (?) experimental hybrid or
    electric some years ago which they called the Impact. And being safety
    minded, I wouldn't even like to ride in a Dodge Ram.

    (and I always wondered whether the Pontiac Fiero had a proclivity about
    catching fire.....)

    Was the Duster dusty?

    Was the Gremlin plagued by gremlins?

    Did the Hornet sting?

    The Montero is called the "Pajero" in markets outside the U.S., but "Pajero"
    supposedly has connotations here in the U.S.

    The LaCrosse has a different name in Canada due to negative connotations
    there.

    Is the Fairlady Z a man's car?

    Actually, I believe the rear engine Pontiac Fiero was notorious for
    catching fire. It looked quite similar to the Toyota MR2, but of
    course, quality wise, there was no comparison. The Pontiacs were
    terrible!

    I believe that the Fiero was mid-engined.

    Yes, Ray, you are correct. What a great design for a car that's going
    to have lots of mechanical trouble! Fortunately, the Fiero was the only
    mid-engined car anyone ever made in the United States. You can read
    more than you want to know about this infamous Pontiac here:

    Don't forget about the Pinto's (a Dodge car?) of the 70's.
