The Car Talk newspaper column continues, and sometimes it throws me for a loop:
The standard trucks, like the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado, are humongous now. And the so-called smaller trucks, like the Chevy Colorado, Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, are simply “big.”
Of those smaller trucks, the Chevy is the most modern, the Tacoma is the most reliable and the Nissan is the most Nissany.
Damning with faint praise, or praising with faint damns? I’m not quite sure what “Nissany” actually means.
I do know one person who has owned two Frontiers in succession. Perhaps I should ask her.
In the meantime, I probably should try to make up adjectives for other auto marques. I plead guilty to using “Bimmeresque” once or twice.
