Just what the world needed, a Juke whose brakes fail after three closely timed hard stops.

At least that's what happens to the Nismo 370 Zs in comparos

Why is it easier to be a conservative than a liberal? Because it is easier to give a man the finger than a helping hand.

That thing makes the Aztec look good. What I don't get is that thing looks a lot worse, but it doesn't get anywhere near as much bad press as the Aztec got, and continues to get. Double standard much?

The Juke is ugly. No doubt about that. However, there are no words for how ugly the Aztec is/was. IMHO the Aztec still stands as the world champ of ugly vehicles.

Yeah. Other than the grill, I don't see what everyone was so upset about. And if you look at it like a woman, well...Her grill is messed up but everything else looks good...

...Maybe a dentist isn't the person to use that analogy on.

Hey don't forget that GM didn't just fail with the Aztek, they built the Buick version of the AZTEK too. Wasn't much prettier in that guise either. Although that Juke is trying real hard to take the title from them.
