Re: The top 10 cars you hate...

I don't hate any car, while whoever is behind the wheel in some cases, now that's another matter!......

Re: The top 10 cars you hate...

Nissan 350z - Should have been a lightweight sports car but is more like a luxury coupe. Disappointing.

Honda Jazz - Always in the way when i'm trying to drive on a back road.

Most cross-overs (Nissan Qashqai / Juke) - Seem like a money maker for car companies. Either buy a proper 4x4 (Panda Cross ) Or a family car (Tipo).

These are the only cars I would say I hate.

Agree on the DS3, its like a Christmas bauble hence why ours is being replaced with a mokka in january.

Indeed, you can just imagine at 12:30 on a bank holiday Friday the design team stepping back and the leader saying "that'll do lads, I know it's been a long hard slog staying awake looking at this thing for the last few months shall we hit the pub?"

Re: The top 10 cars you hate...

I'm amused at threads such as this, sure there are some ugly cars out there & everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It would seem most nowadays are spoilt for choice in the vehicle department, & there are those who are just blinkered recognising only one badge. All modern cars are clever machines one way or another. Perhaps I come from a time when, if you were lucky enough to actually own a car, it was freedom no matter what make or model.

Obviously I have my favourite cars, but actually hating a car for any reason, no I don't. In the past I've had love/hate relationships with a couple of my cars that I've owned, but that's for various reasons, mainly for letting me down at times when I relied on my car for transport. Off topic, what I hate is the other things you have to have in place during ownership of a car is the....tax,insurance,cost of fuel etc,ect.................

Re: The top 10 cars you hate...

Indeed, money is King, especially so these days. The car industry & all that goes with it, including aftermarket kits, mods & the stuff that "improves" performance. Vast amounts of money involved here. Slightly off topic...

Re: The top 10 cars you hate...

All German cars, because their bland, boring, dull and not particularly 'outstanding' at anything.

A relation of mine spent 720 getting a new clutch in a 2008 A4.....

Worth the 'regional managers' status?!

I'll stick to my Panda. 60 for my LuK clutch kit and a few hours work. Can't be much different on that sh*t box.

Rant over, back to being a happy Fiat owner ;-)

I wouldn't say Porsche are bland, boring, dull or anything but outstanding as a car, and they are German.

Unfortunately, they do have a plethora of idiotic design faults which has resulted in a 'remove the bolt' being 6 hours of 'remove the hardened steel bolt from the Aluminium sleeve after 17 years of corrosion'.

VWs and Audis are cars I don't really understand the obsession with (have worked in a VW parts dept in the past, and saw the reality). Thing is, if you ask a VW nut if they have ever owned anything but a VW, they often say no.


I guess the better a car is put together, the harder it can be to take apart!

Re: The top 10 cars you hate...

I must admit, I'm not a fan of porsches myself, but certainly, the mainstream german boxes are achingly bland. French and Italian car makers have a less than ideal reputation, but they certainly tend to put a degree of flair into their products, something which mainstream german cars frequently lack.

I wasn't, until I bought one. Arse to work on, but there's FIAT Pandas worth more than mine, and yet people look at you like it's worth a fortune, which is odd.

Peugeot/Citroen are pretty "what's on the tin" cars - not premium, but they don't pretend to be. Easy to work on, for the most part, and parts are cheap. Renaults......not so convinced.

Citroen are back to their quirky best now. The new C3 even comes with a built in dashcam, which is long overdue in cars. Plus those big anti-dent buffers on the side

I don't mind the 924/944, but that's as far as my liking of Porsches goes, lol!
