    I thought it would be impossible for any manufacturer to build anything uglier than the Aztek, but I was wrong. Nissan was up to the challenge with the Juke.

    What a stupid article …like I’m suppose to believe somehow my dog prefers these cars….take a good look… this is exactly how stupid people are..they will actually believe these people somehow found out the dogs preferences in cars…these people are called democrats…will believe anything they are told.

    Having bought a car based on the requirement that it needed to be able to transport my 2 large dogs, I did look at all of these cars as options. It’s not that the dog will like the car, but ease of loading and unloading the dogs, will crates fit, how many crates, how about seatbelt harnesses, ect. All of the listed cars are hatchbacks so putting the seats down and at the very least (if you don’t crate) tethering the dog to an attachment point makes for driver and dog safety.
