Have your say

Did I hear right? Have Vauxhall really called their new car model Adam?

Who thinks up these bizarre names? The same person that renamed TV station Men & Motors Dave?

Maybe Vauxhall has aimed this car solely at people called Adam? With that in mind, I feel other car manufacturers should follow suit, then we’d know if we were buying the right car. Genius.

For example, the Nissan Micra should be remained the Nissan Dorothy for the blue rinsers. The Ford Mondeo could become the Ford Kevin and the Peugeot 208 the Peugeot Amy.

Then again, I was following a Toyota Lucida Emina the other day. Doesn’t say much for the way it drives, does it?
