Tank on EmptyTank on Empty
 

Yugo

December 14, 2007 about Honda Accord

Ok, they didn't have a category for YUGO so I chose Honda! Does anyone remember YUGOS?? They were a very, very small car. I looked as big as Hulk Hogan in my YUGO and I'm only 5ft 6in. that's how small they are.

Anyway, I was on empty when I left for work. I drove 12 miles to work, then after work I was so sleepy that I drove home, but not before stopping to grab a burger. They took soooo long to make the burger that I thought I was going to run out while sitting in the drive thru!! Argh!

So I got my burger and started driving home, when all of a sudden a dog shot out in front of my car and I slammed on my brakes. I did not hit the doggie but the owner was mad at me for driving too fast and she yelled at me. I thought if I drive fast, then I'll get home before I run out of gas.

Anway, about 5 miles from home my YUGO started sputtering and I was finally out!! But as luck would have it I was 1/2 mile away from a Shamrock station and I coasted right up into the gas station!! I went 39 miles!! See ya! (true story) sholstein2003@yahoo.com

I had a Yugo Iroc. Used to pass any car that was parked like it was standing still.

I also had a Yugo. Back in the day $5 would fill the tank and would last me all week. Loved it!!

That's exactly right Karl. They need to be very cfaerul that they avoid the Yugo-meets-Pinto perception. And who knows, Tata might still get this right. But now they have to battle a perception of dubious quality.And yes, Tata did offer the owner a replacement/refund. My sense is that the soon-to-be former owner selected the refund since I read that he was so scared he would never drive another Nano, and maybe not even another car.

Het werkt inderdaad perfect maar kijk uit voor de vele zaoernrklleks die er rondlopen.In de metro’s en op de stations zijn er voornamelijk Roma’s die in groepjes opereren en binnenno time je tas en zakken leeghalen.Wij hebben het aan den lijve ondervonden en dat geeft een zeer onprettig gevoel.
