its ugly. simple as that.
With the price of gas such as it is, I think any car that was good on gas, regardless of what it looked like would be worth the embarassment of driving. Why do I say this?? I drive a Toyota Scion..a perfectly square car that gets a ton of ridicule. I am getting well over 30 mpg and contrary to what people think, this funny looking square car has more head room in it than one could possibly imagine. My son, who is 6'2" tall and very broad shouldered, is my biggest NON-Fan of my Scion..that is until he got in it and drove it. His comment..Holy Sh*&^t..there is a ton of room in here.
My Scion is burgandy and I had a wild stripe..pin stripe..design painted down the side and across the hood. It is a 2004, first year it came out and I LOVE my ugly little car..LOL

i dont disagree with that statement. i see some kia's out there that look pretty nice. im not sure if its really too bad, since there are plenty of alternatives out there. its not really priced much lower than what id be looking for anyway, so i figure why get the "lowest" name without saving money on it? i drive a small suv and thats what id get next also. so the kia sportage is about $22k, which puts it close to the rogue, forester and others in that class.

ANY vehicle that has rims on it that are worth twice as much as the vehicle itself.
