Re: Nissan Roadtrek's are just plain ugly

FWIW, I think they're getting better looking (nowhere to go but up?). Might scrape the running boards going over a speed bump though.

I think the Sprinters are great. I also like endearingly ugly quirky car designs. But yeah, the Promaster is hurtin'. I'm sure they could have done better with that bumpergrille thing.

Then you would probably like the Fiat Multipla.



You can definitely see the Fiat influence in the ProMaster look.

I think I just threw up a little bit.

How on earth can something that hideous possibly make it past all the design reviews? Maybe it was designed by the company owner's son/daughter, girlfriend/boyfriend, mistress? So much timeless design coming out of Italy, and they let that thing see the light of day. I feel like a piece of me died seeing that thing.
