I can kind of understand the appeal of the original H1, although I wouldn't drive one of those, either.
I think the H2 and H3 are incredibly tacky, and they're slower, more expensive, have worse visibility, less storage, and lower fuel mileage than the Trailblazer and Tahoe platforms they are based on. If you want a great off-roader, buy a Wrangler. If you want a midsize-to-large GM SUV, much better choices are available at Chevrolet and GMC dealerships.

True dat. I forgot VW altogether from my hit list. Definitely second the New Beetle as awful. Other than that they have a pretty tight stable, at least in my eye. The Phaeton was a miserable failure in sales, but a good looking car to me.

Umm.. geez.. I guess you really love your bicycle, eh Johnny??
Just kidding.....How about the Malcolm Bricklin specials? How do you feel about Subarus, the Bricklin and, of course, the unforgettable Yugo? Do you think Chrysler will have any luck with the Chery instead of ol' Mac?

Ya I guess I cut a pretty mean swath across the auto universe. But hey --- there are a bunch of beautiful cars out there. I thought maybe a companion list would be fun but beyond the scope of this thread.
Subies? Well, shoot, you asked...
Like: Impreza, Legacy
Don't like: WRX/STi, Outback, Tribeca, Forrester
I've never heard of Malcolm... let's just stay consistent and say I hate it.

Will Chrysler have luck with Chery? I hope so. They badly need a nice small car. And they just need some things to go their way, period.

Maybe we could add a twist to this discussion by saying what you would never drive and what you actually drive. For example, a friend of my wife's was making fun of her Honda Odyssey and saying that he would never drive a minivan. I was waiting to hear the guy say he got his wife a Denali, R class Mercedes or some other cool people mover. But the guy then said that got a ................. Chrysler Pacifica. Come on, the Pacifica is the least cool of all sport utility vehicles and clearly less cool than a Odyssey. Bottom line you can not make fun of an Odyssey if you drive a Pacifica but you can if you drive a Denali.
I would never be caught dead in an Aztek Oh, and we drive a Odessey and a Subaru Legacy GT.
