    The consistently best visual design is done by Nissan

    What?  :bugeyed:

    That is absolutely not true.

    Yeah, I have to agree.  Nissan’s styling is hit and miss, like most of the brands.  Acura’s is more miss at the moment.

    Yes, It is true.  The Nissan Altima, Murano, Z, and GTR all illustrate best in class styling.  Toyota and Honda, by contrast, are butt ugly in every design.  Yes, they are popular and ubiquitous—much like Dell—and about as inspired.

    That’s not the entirety of their lineup, though. And I have to disagree on the Murano. The Cube and the Versa are both butt ugly.

    Ford’s lineup actually looks quite nice at the moment. Their latest models are really quite well stylish.

    Just ordered a 2010 Mustang GT.  First Ford product ever purchased.  I think Ford is poised to grow in the future but not at Apple’s past rate of return.  AM turned around Boeing and I’m convinced he can do the same with Ford.

    Honda car design > Acura car design at the moment.

    Gotta back you on this zombie thread. Nissan? Really?

    Here I thought over the years Aston has consistently offered the best looking cars.

    Honda car design > Acura car design at the moment.

    Since when?  I checked out Acura and Honda cars in 2007.  Car-ionics of Honda are out-of-date.  Bought Acura TL.
