I just pronounce it "Pinchot" and hope that Balki isn't anywhere nearby.

They didn't blame the U.S. recession. The economy of Europe also happens to be in pretty bad shape, subby.

Wait, is the USA in a recession? I thought we were at "anemic" or "very weak" growth, but that still is a step above "recession" the last time I checked.

/serious question

I'm not sure I've ever even seen a Peugeot or a Citroen on the road in the USA.

Neither. Well maybe a bit insane, but that doesn't have to do with my choice of cars. I'm on my second Peugeot (first was a 1996 306 - just got rid of it last year...current one is a 2009 207SW) The Citroën is a 2009 C1. It's a basic, dependable car. Perfect for the 20km trip to work.

I drove a (rented) Peugeot 508 turbo diesel all over northern Italy, even through Switzerland to Germany and France last time I was in Europe. It was actually a very nice car. Hit 170 km/h on the German Autobahn w/o any problem. It did only have about 12K Kilometers on it though...

Kuroshin: Maybe he's just rubbing it in about WWII.


then he'd be driving something british, like a new Mini or a Lotus or an Ariel, or a Land Rover or a Vauxhall

"Peugeot blames poor sales on US recession, European economy, inability to pronounce company name"

I'd say it's more like Pur-show. The G is soft, not a hard sound like the J in Joe.

Pronouncing the last syllable as Joe is using a soft G. If it were a hard G, it would pronounce as "go".

My first car was a Peugeot 104. Changed the alternator three times in 11 months before the rest of the car rusted away. I will never ever buy a Peugeot again, even if they'd change their ugly shark design.
Had German cars ever since: VW, Opel, Audi and a Merc. The Audi also made a lot of trouble, but all the others were solid.

Point taken. But it's still too hard a sound.

I had a Peugot bicycle when I was stationed in Germany a couple of decades ago. Excellent bike but it did eventually break down after from the cobblestone streets.

Best grinders ever. Wish I could justify spending that much on a pepper grinder, though :D
