    Name pickin come's and go's at the big 3. Look at Chrysler, they quit making Lancer way back in the mid 60's. And now since Their hooked up with Mitsubishi, Lancer is back, in a much better looking car than the old Lancer. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Its like a comedy of errors. If it doesn't sell then change the name and remarket it. I tell you, the Trail Blazer really offends me though, I think it could get stuck driving across the lawn.

    Yeah I dont like those things either. I have been lookin at Tahoes and every lot I have been on the Salesman always tries "we got a couple of nice Trailblazers" /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif That pisses me off so bad I just told you I was looking at a Tahoe.

    The nova went from muscle car to sub-compact.
    The impala came back big and strong and then became a mid-size 4 door sedan.
    The malibu came back the same way
    How about the GMC suburban getting rebadged Yukon XL?

    I laugh as I roll up in my Jimmy and look down at another "Jimmy" that is compact with about 2 inches of ground clearance, 4 doors and a V-6 and say "Oh look, we have the same kind of vehicle".

    My Mom has a TrailBlazer and thinks it's the best car on earth. It was funny when she got stuck last winter and I pulled her out with the K5 (that she won't even let me park in the driveway because of how it looks).

    yeah, and there was a lumina car and van at the same time, that looked nothing alike...and it is pretty lazy to not think up a differnet name for GMC's Suburban all those years and just use chevy's name...
