QOTD: Which Model Shouldn't Return?
Today's QOTD is simple, and I won't need many words to set it up.
If you were suddenly czar of the automotive industry, which model would you kill -- and why?
You get to pick one, but it can be any model -- including venerable nameplates and/or ones that are seemingly successful. Or you can play it more straight and choose something that isn't selling. You get to pick -- but explain your reasons.
It's Friday. It's late summer. Let's have some fun playing product planner.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.
