lame duck

I'm a fan of hatchbacks. I'm a fan of anything that swoops down at an angle in the butt end of the vehicle. I love the Audi A3, the Audi A4 wagon. I love the old Mazda 3 sport, the newer version (smiling grill and all). To this day, my MKIV Golf GTI still makes me smile whenever I pull it out for winter driving duties.

Heck, I'd even rock a Mini Cooper. The woman drives a Yaris hatcback which I suggested would be a great first car (and it is, in spite of the cheap plastic cockpit).

I'm sure I'm missing a lot of other great hatchbacks from the list above. Afterall, they are practical, and with a decent engine, they are fun. I even liked the Pontiac Aztec, as well as the BMW X6.

Have you seen the Euro Honda Accord wagon? Like hello, Red!

And then the Honda Crosstour came about, and Oh Am Gee! What an epic fail.

Bear in mind the picture above is the "official photoshopped version", where they try to make it look as great as possible. It just doesn't work.

I'm sure everyone and their uncle who are remotely interested in cars have seen this grotesque looking vehicle. If not: LINK

Have to agree, I saw one in person the other day and it made me happy to be in my 91 civic hatch beater and NOT in that thing.
