'Veronica Mars' Vehicle HAAATE!  
I'm sorry, I can't deal. I'm rewatching the episode and I can't hold it any longer.

WHY DID THEY GET RID OF THE LEBARON AND THE X-TERRA OF SHINY YELLOW?!?!??!

WHY!??!? Both cars had personality, they had distinction. The LeBaron fit Veronica so beautifully, so perfectly and it was SUCH a noir car. The X-Terra, again, fit Logan so beautifully, so perfectly -- it screamed, put on a show, made a spectacle of itself. It WAS Logan!!!

WHY?!?!?!??! Gah!!! And you know, prior to actually seeing them, I was more upset by the loss of the X-Terra, but onscreen, I'm more disheartened by that godawful, soccer-mom-looking, bland, boring, ohmygodVeronicawouldneverdrivethat, vehicle that's masquerading as Veronica's car. GUH!!! Not that I'm still not upset by the X-Terra loss ... because, dude, it's the X-TERRA!! Logan's X-Terra of bright, shiny YELLOW!! Grrr.

SO MUCH HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE! for the new vehicles. They suck!!!

I'm sad, too.

You have no idea how much we all wanted to cry when Jason announced that Logan was trying at Range Rover at Blowout. It hurt so damn much.

Let's try to remember happy YXT moments...

I am bummed about that, but I really am more disgusted by Veronica's new car. At least, Logan's RangeRover can be justified as more expensive and many thought of the X-Terra as "Jackass Yellow" and Logan isn't so much the jackass anymore, but that *thing* that Veronica is driving is just so very, very, very wrong on every level for this show, for this character. UGH!!!

I loved the X-Terra, it really *was* Logan but I actually love the black Range Rover too, it might not be jackass yellow but it's pretty and shiny and I am easy to please. But the LeBaron being traded in for the boring soccer-mom-looking car is unforgivable, it doesn't fit her personality and it's not very pretty. R.I.P. LeBaron. Steakout Partner. Getaway Vehicle. Tarp-covered School Counciling Session Eavesdropping Facilitator. You will be missed. ::sigh::

EXACTLY! It's just wrong and doesn't fit Veronica or this show at all. The RangeRover still fits Logan, it's just not as THERE! as the yellow X-Terra, but it works.

Veronica's new vehicle seems really impractical for stakeouts, but then, she isn't working for Keith anymore, so. SIGH! So sad!

But she's soo still gonna be doing stake-outs now and then, totally. Ugh, it's just so unbelievably, fucking WRONG!!!! I just, GAH! I loved the X-Terra, but that just hasn't flummoxed me, but seeing the car, seeing Veronica lean against it (in the car wash scene), it was almost painful. That car is SO wrong on every level for this show. I hate it. I really, truly hate it.

REALLY! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE!

WORDY MCWORD.

It kinda sounds like the stupidest thing in the world to say, but them replaces those cars was like the final nail in the coffin of my love for this show. Because obviously, by replacing those cars that were SO INCREDIBLY PERFECT FOR EACH CHARACTER with the horribly WRONG new cars, they've shown that THEY JUST DON'T GET IT ANYMORE. ANY OF IT. AT ALL.

Did you see hellopoe's In Memoriam post for YXT. It turned me into a blubbering idiot on the floor. I just LOVED those cars.

I still enjoy the show (I loved the last episode), but I'm not obsessed with it and I see everything that's wrong with it. I enjoy Logan/Veronica because I think they have chemistry and I'm a couple-girl first. But yeah, I started sounding this horn last year and not much has changed except I think she's with the right guy now. The car switch is just yet another symptom that RT doesn't get or doesn't care what the viewers love and indentify with on this show. He doesn't look at the overall story, the overall feel, the overall draw that was there in season one. He doesn't get it. At all. No one involved with this show does anymore. Sigh.

Yes, I saw jascott's post, but like I said -- it's actual the LeBaron I mourn more, which suprises me as I've been a huge X-Terra lover from early on. But at least the Range Rover is still big and there, if not quite in your face. The Saturn is just so very wrong in every way. It just does NOT work!!!!!

I can ALMOST tolerate the new Saturn.

But... the the... XTERRA!! It was so... BEAUTIFUL!!

If nothing is explained soon, I will cryyy! Like a girl. *Nods*

Wow, I can't imagine it possible tolerating the Saturn. Just. So. wrong.

Sadly, I don't think we'll ever get an explanation for the loss of the X-Terra. Grumble, grumble!
