    Or at least disappointments. Instead of making you click through every car as CNN wants ad revenue maximized, here's basically the list:
    What's funny is that someone argued with me how awesome Fiat is and how lucky for Chrysler to partner with them. Good gosh...

    I've often wondered what people see in those things, unless they just want a punky looking car that looks completely different than the other cars.

    I'm surprised Honda was able to screw up the Civic. It's been long time one of the best made economy cars on the road. It appears they messed up a sure thing.

    And what about Saab? Apparently they're going into bankruptsy, although perhaps they will be saved. I wouldn't bet any money on that though. Perhaps some of their workers and plants can be used to make or assemble parts for others.

    The Fiat is a joke! Smaller, more expensive and worse gas mileage than a Honda Civic doesn't equal sales. Everyone should have seen that coming.

    I know of one good use for the Cube... I work with a guy that plays drums in a local bar band on the weekends; the cube is the perfect, economical solution for hauling his set-up to their weekend gigs. That is the only reason he bought one. He would have gone for the equally ugly but roomy Scion xB, but the Cube was cheaper.

    Some people like a heavier car. I once owned a 1964 Chrysler Imperial LeBaron. 5,005 pounds, cost me $100 but I never got it running.
    Rumor has it the previous owner totaled another car with the LeBaron, LeBaron didn't need any repairs.
