So it began in 2007 and took them til end of 2009 to ask for a car? Probably had to wait for all the kickbacks and payoffs to come in first.

When u live in NY, you dont care about those things anymore.. You just want the cheapest van that looks like a 7 seater..
Luis Lujan Apr 05, 2012
Thanks everyone for at least agreeing this is a mistake.
Luis Lujan Apr 05, 2012
Should have gone with the Ford. So lame.
Paul Lissona Apr 05, 2012
Yah this is obviously stupid geez.
Knox Ferraro Apr 04, 2012
Please tell me you weren't educated in NC, Black Honda. Anyway, I'm sad to see such a HUGE bid lost to a foreign company. Come on, NY, where's your patriotism?

I really think they would be better off with American cars. If people go visit New York they want to see American stuff. I would expect fords or something. Mercedes in Berlin and maybe nissans in Tokyo.
Carl Andrew Muniz Tirella Apr 04, 2012
Should of made a Taurus taxi, to go with the intercepter
Paul Lissona Apr 04, 2012
Yah I really think they should've kept making, and using crown Victorias. For a govt vehicle choice Nissan, idk why.

If it gets the job done then its fine, ugly as hell though.
Dale Schroeder Apr 04, 2012
Of course it's ugly, it's a utility van.
Nick Schnee Apr 04, 2012
Wow, these things are so ugly...
Ethan Amo Apr 04, 2012

This is very ridiculous.
Luis Lujan Apr 05, 2012
All of a sudden it looks like you're in Japan, not America. And what, are baseball players going to advertise microwave noodles and karaoke next?
Nick Benz Apr 04, 2012
It really has a dumb looking face.
Steven Whowhat Apr 04, 2012
very nice. ...not. stopping in cross walk to pick up passengers. two violations at once.

This is very messed up.

Crown vic was built in Canada. The transit connect built in Turkey, but the point is the message being sent out to millions of tourists: NYC doesnt care about America as much as they do about $$$$$$.
Simon Trépanier Apr 04, 2012
The Crown Vic was not built in Canada?
Carl Andrew Muniz Tirella Apr 04, 2012
American iconic cab is built in Mexico? That's the problem... but then again, I wouldn't be surprised to hear the Crown Vic was built there too but still an issue
Luis Enrique Lara Apr 04, 2012
@chris what's your problem with mexican built cars?
Chris Dimattia Apr 04, 2012
That's just great! Japanese car, owned by Renault, and built in Mexico. Somebody sold out big time. This thing looks awful!
Kevin Rehbock Apr 04, 2012
I doubt this van is built to hold up to extreme stop and go traffic, idling, riding the brake, etc.. If this has the CVT, being a NYC cab mechanic would be the same as being a gold miner.
Paul Lissona Apr 04, 2012
Yah seriously looks like it overheated ha.
Thibault Leroy Apr 04, 2012
it already looks old
Bradley Swfc Wainwright Apr 04, 2012
There's steam cause its broke down
Paul Lissona Apr 05, 2012
Doubt it's reliable either, no class in it.
Luis Lujan Apr 05, 2012
It looks like shit.
Carl Andrew Muniz Tirella Apr 04, 2012
It looks ten years old lol
Chris Dimattia Apr 04, 2012
Yellow stitching on the seats is a nice touch.
