Submitter’s comments: Here is a good one. Surprisingly, it’s GMC. Everyone here who has to use the site is constantly complaining about how bad the font is. It has rendered parts of the site completely unreadable.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: Interestingly, screenshots of the home page make the menu text at the top look better than it looks on a monitor. While text is readable on a monitor, the text isn’t crisp and looks amateurish. The text navigation below the trucks is practically illegible and it lacks sufficient contrast. If you look at the very bottom of the page, there’s some legalese that’s totally impossible to read unless you highlight it and stick your face six inches from the screen. Since it’s legalese, it’s perfectly OK to make is unreadable.
If you mouse over Trucks, Crossovers/SUVs, or Vans, you get even more text that’s difficult to read and “choppy.” (Sorry about “Choppy” but it’s almost 4:00 a.m. here.)
Disclaimer: I have relatives who currently work for Ford. I also had lots of relatives who worked for GM subsidiaries or may still work for them (haven’t seen them in 20 years).
