Archimedes' Principal: 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.
Yeah.... I liked it better when it was called the Peugeot 1007.
Fabric_Man: Supposedly, Honda tried to market the Fit in Sweden as the "Fita." It's slang for vagina.
markie_farkie: 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'
John Buck 41: Ask Chevy how well the Nova sold in Mexico when it debuted.
Mad_Radhu: Unfortunate name aside, I'll bet that thing is downright nubianrdly when it comes to fuel consumption compared to a full sized minivan.
BronyMedic: So you want an Ace of Spades?
b0rg9: I think the granddaddy of inconvenient car names was the Chevy Nova.Which, in Mexico, translates to "is not" or "no go" or something. Whatever -- not good for a car.
Chakro: While not a racial slur, Chevy had the famous "Nova", which translates in Spanish to "doesn't go" when spoken.
James F. Campbell: John Buck 41: Ask Chevy how well the Nova sold in Mexico when it debuted.Why don't you do some research yourself, first?
Chakro: It's a joke,. lighten up Francis.
John Buck 41: 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.
PhiloeBedoe: Will it be attractive? Successful?
lack of warmth: Isn't Chevy coming out with a new minivan themselves? I think it is called the Cracker. Only comes in white, radio only gets country music, it will be the first minivan with no backseat and the doors lock automatically everytime it is driven near MLK blvd or Detroit.
