    did you know about the Isuzu "MU", or "MU-X"?
    did you know that the name stands for "mysterious utility"?
    well now you do.

    Yes I have heard of it. Pretty sure no one has found out what that mysterious utility is.

    Not the best name for a car from the 1930s.

    it was called the brumby in australia, the place where coupe utilities are commonplace, yet they still didn't make a new version.
    i don't think the name is the problem.

    I know, I just said it was the name's fault as a "joke" on the name

    The brat means brother in Serbian, which I find quite unusual as a car name.
    OT:
    Some examples:

    Although most of countries won't find Kuga name inappropriate, people from Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia will. In languages used in those countries, Kuga means plague. Why would someone buy a car whose name refers to some disease? Honestly, I don't know why Ford haven't put an Escape name for these markets.

    Something similar. Malaga as most people know is a city in Spain and also a Seat car. Most people will find nothing wrong with it. Although in Greek a very close to the name curse word (malakas) means a-hole. The car was later named Gredos by Seat so it could be sold in Greece.

    They should make a zany version with lots of little widgets to personalise: the "Up Yours!"

    Mitsubishi Pajero, because "pajero" means coomer in spanish. Also the renault Kona, because "cona" (wich is pronounced the same) is a slang for vagina in galician, my language.
    --- Post updated ---
    Also "LaPuta" translates to "the bitch" in spanish. lmao
