WTF Nissan?

Hope this isn't 205. My dad sent it to me and I couldn't believe my eyes. I already hate Nissan drivers. As a commuter I always have the most problems with Altima owners. Now this:

Here in So Cal, I have most problems with:
a) Volvo (too concerned with safety to keep up with traffic)
b) Cadillac (too old to see or care)
c) Toyota (too concerned with using a car as a means to save money, hence drive at no more than 55 mph)
d) f'in Prius (same as c, but even more so)

Altima owners are pretentious a holes because they think they're so much smarter than Toyota owners cause their car cost $1000 less and they are unpredictable because they either drive under the speed limit because they aren't in a hurry or reckless and fast (never signaling) because they are in a hurry.

They are truly in their own world and it must revolve around them.

If I must start keeping a video journal to prove it at least I'll be getting some use out of my GoPro Hero Wide.

I had a left lane hogger pulling a 5th wheel yesterday in rush hour. Yeah, he could do the speed of traffic but it took him twice as long to stop and 10 times as long to get back up to speed.

He probably was pulling it with a Ford.

mike, I'm with ya on the Prius' (Priui?) and here they're cloggin up the HOV lane and we're not allowed to split. So you just have to sit behind this jackass going 60 until there is a break in the fast lane that is going 70-75 so you can get around.

I read on the MOA forum, this ad had been pulled, since there were so many complaints.

i'm amazed it ever got past the legal dept.

i can hear them now: "Okay, so our client Nissan is being sued because this clown claims he watched the commercial, had always wanted a car for mowing down bikers, so he bought one....and then he did.
"So he's suing us for 473 gazillion dollars. Oh, and so are the bikers."

I sent Nissan a complaint stating that as a former Nissan owner they had guaranteed that I will never own another one of their products due to that ad.

We'll see what kind of response I get.

p.s. We hated that Pathfinder, so we wouldn't buy another Nissan anyways.

Drivers that suck like to drive:
Honda civics.
Subarus (WRXs don't count. those guys will rail on it).
Volvos.
Anything that a guy with a hat is sitting in the driver's seat of (ball caps don't count as a hat in this instance).
Any pick-em-up truck that you can drive under.
Any Japanese sheet-box that sports a grapefruit shooter for a muffler.

There are two kinds of BMW riders:

a. those who stereotype and categorize people and,

b. those who don't!

The ad sucks. The driver of ANY vehicle can take you out. Ride like they're out to get you!

Stereotypes aren't based on facts but I can prove Altima drivers suck.

Here we go GoPro.

Who thought that presenting urban driving as a dicking contest would get received well ? Are they selling cars of Gi-Joes ?

i've done controlled, scientific studies for years on these guys. No stereotyping involved. Its like Dragnet- just the facts, ma'am, nothing but the facts.

Heres Nissan's non-apology apology for the asinine Juke commercial:


Dear Doug,

Thank you for taking the time to personally contact us regarding the Juke/Motorcycle commercial.

We apologize that our commercial offended you in any way. It was not our intention to do so.

Nissan Canada developed the fantasy-inspired digital videos exclusively for online audiences to showcase the unique design and performance of the Nissan Juke, including the motorcycle-inspired design elements of the car.

We purposefully created a supernatural setting because we do not promote reckless driving.

We appreciate you getting in touch with us to share your concerns but please know that we do NOT under any circumstances promote careless driving. After one year of being on air we are pulling the clip.

If you have further questions or comments, please contact us by calling Nissan Canada at 1-800-387-0122 and pressing "1" for service in English, and then “0” a live operator.

At Nissan, we are committed to a high level of customer service.

Sincerely,

Lynda

There is only one Make I refuse to ride behind. And the Demographics completely back me up:

BUICK.




These people are without exception near Death. Their driving skills have long since deserted them and they have no business behind the wheel. I have no idea why they still make these cars---they are uniformly ugly and pointless. Even your Father wouldn't drive one.

Lexus: the new Cadillac.

Well, you would go nuts in Nashville because Nissan headquarters there as well as plant in Smyrna, 50 miles down the road. Nissans EVERYWHERE.

The bigger the SUV the worse the driver in the Midwest. Out-of-state plates means they checked their brain before leaving home state, particularly ILLINOIS drivers, but same can be said of Iowa drivers in Illinois.

Suspect all Missouri drivers when out-of-state since they are "Show Me" including how to wipe their backsides it appears.

The list goes on and on.

I've even seen H-D riders, in cutoffs, flip-flops, sun glasses, no helmet, loud pipes AND trying to talk on a cell phone while driving one-handed.

Let's face it; nothing killing morons anymore. World is too safe for them, too dangerous for us.

Bub, I think that was his point. It was survival of the fittest before cars got so safe that the idiots can't die. Then they have children...little idiots.
