What Do You Think is the Most Disappointing Car-Model Redesign?

It seems as if new designs are stale and almost identical from every manufacturer, so we are going back to the classics and 'updating' them. But this doesn't always work.

What re-designs have you found to be an utter disappointment compared to the original?

Wow, such great comparisons! I can't believe how badly the Skylark deteriorated. The LeMans and Nova are just sad.

I've always thought the new Challenger looks more like the old Charger. I have to always remind myself when I see it.

The Dodge Charger is bad but the Challenger is very bad. The Charger was always the family hot rod. But the Challenger was the nasty fast hot rod and now they are Very Heavy and slow. I do know you can make them fast. But as a Mopar guy they should be able to run with the Camaro and Mustang.

I think at least the 03 TBird was a step back in the right direction, albeit a small step.

That was what I was thinking too, but from what my brother tells me, if you drive it, it's horrible. I thought maybe that's where that might have been coming from.
