You’ve been given the task of creating a car nut, or Jalop if you will, out of a pair of persons with physical impairments. The only way you’re allowed to do this is by introducing them to one vehicle. They can touch, listen to (if able), and ride in the vehicle, but that’s it. No telling them about features, price,… »
I posed this same question to Patrick on his Ask Me Anything post. Figured I would query deep into the all holy Oppositelockian opinion. Here it goes: »
So, what has been the worst Automotive Alliance ever? (Could be temporary, permanent, or perhaps resulted in a few vehicles) My nomination: Suzuki-VW. I was checking the article at TTAC about Suzuki finally getting out of their deal with VW. Such a disappointment.
