Big deal..

In other parts of the world, the Mitsubishi Montero is sold as the Pajero. Apparently in South American Spanish slang, Pajero is a term for 'One who masturbates constantly'

Do I need to find another name for a card suit?

/sometimes you have to call a spade a spade

Gardening is racist.
 
2012-07-24 07:52:34 PM
Those people are morons and assholes. Toyota isn't using it to discriminate, and only butthurt people looking to pick fights even still associate that word with a racial slur.
 
2012-07-24 08:03:20 PM
Toyota Spade?

After that whole accelerator fiasco of theirs, I think I'd rather buy a Nissan Darkie.
 
2012-07-24 08:06:12 PM
Normally I hate the argument of "you're the real racist for seeing the racism" but in this case... yeah. The racial epithet would be like 8th on the list of defining "spade" and I only know 3 definitions of the word.

Can I get one in black?

So you want an Ace of Spades?

It's not news, it's Pajero.com.

Sadly we can't see the grill.
 
2012-07-24 08:35:50 PM
Still better than the AMC Niglet.

+1! Would read again.
 
2012-07-24 09:02:49 PM
oh ffs.

Its a stupid name but not for that reason.
 
2012-07-24 09:03:41 PM
Does it come w/ a Hoodie?
 
2012-07-24 09:04:15 PM
Whoever had a problem with this deserves to be shot and left to bleed out in a ditch somewhere.
 
2012-07-24 09:04:24 PM
Oh no, it's cool, we're taking it back.
 
2012-07-24 09:05:07 PM
These are dark times for Toyota.
 
2012-07-24 09:06:05 PM
It's a cheap knock-off of the Honda Afro-American.
 
2012-07-24 09:06:09 PM
What's the Lexus version going to be?

The Lexus Negroid?
 
2012-07-24 09:07:02 PM
Will it be attractive? Successful?

The Pontiac Pickaninny was almost as bad as the Aztek.
 
2012-07-24 09:07:26 PM
The Porte has been around for quite a few years. It's less a minivan than a tall hatchback, like the Scion xB or Nissan Cube.

In true Toyota fashion, it is small, underpowered, and flimsy. When is Toyota releasing the 86 in the US?

Does the horn go "Honkey honkey" ?
 
2012-07-24 09:08:07 PM
Oh, come on.
If someone is offended, it's their choice.
This is complete and utter nonsense.
It's just a farking word.

They'll probably just change the name. Otherwise, this situation could become a huge tar baby for them.

This thread is whiter than a Mitt Romney rally.

Trademark infringement: there was already a Chevrolet Shovel.

Toyota's playing the race card, hmmm?

That's the convertible version, to be released next year.

I remember a local newspaper guy writing about how he was looking for a blackboard and had a stupid conversation with someone from the school district who thought blackboard was offensive.

The Chrysler Colored Boy wagon.
 
2012-07-24 09:11:59 PM
Wait, spade is racist now? I can't call a spade a spade anymore?
 
2012-07-24 09:12:05 PM
Supposedly, Honda tried to market the Fit in Sweden as the "Fita." It's slang for vagina.
 
2012-07-24 09:12:51 PM
The card suit community frowns on your shenanigans.
 
2012-07-24 09:13:04 PM
This is what happens when you let the Japanese (or, if of USA origin, youngsters) run your marketing department.

Ask Chevy how well the Nova sold in Mexico when it debuted.

They need to nip this in the bud. They don't have a spic of sense. This could be the chink in the armor tho. But they shouldn't act like porch monkeys.

No belt to replace.

Just get lazy there at the end or what?

Trust me. I know a guy who knows a guy at Toyota Japan. The 'Spade' was named after DAVID Spade.

/He's very popular in Japan.
 
2012-07-24 09:15:50 PM
oh c'mon! Its not like black people drive toyotas anyway!
 
2012-07-24 09:15:54 PM
Unfortunate name aside, I'll bet that thing is downright nubianrdly when it comes to fuel consumption compared to a full sized minivan.
 
2012-07-24 09:15:56 PM

"Fred! Have you heard the latest one about the Jew, the Catholic and the Colored boy who went to a car dealership?"
