Thread: Cars That Annoy You

    Cars That Annoy You

    I was just dodging through some channels this evening and the god-awful Toyota commercial with that annoying woman came on. She mentioned something like "This sporty Camry" which immediately reminded me of all the jackasses who buy that sporty version of a family sedan to only drive slow in the damn fast lane. Which got me thinking how much I hate Toyota. Of course this is short of the old 70 series and of course the Tacoma. Everything else annoys the hell out of me

    So as far as horris makes, there's nothing that comes close to Toyota. It is completely and utterly the car that people like to buy to drive slow in the fast lane.

    It has no soul - no purpose for existing and should be flushed down hells eternal toilet as soon as possible.

    Hummers. Practical for almost nobody as far as I can tell.

    The Prius. Though my annoyance is not so much with the car as it is with the owners. Prius operators should, for the most part, be banned from the road.

    My son's car...which is always dirty, frequently in disrepair, and always on fumes.

    But it has a killer stereo.

    And how many of them do I see on Craigslist for an asking price around $35000.

    Anything that goes by the term "crossover". An SUV is already a crossover from a Jeep to a car, adding another "category" is just stupid. And then I'm sure they will have subclasses of crossovers too. Ridiculous.

    I hate the Chevy Camaro from 1982 onward. The newest one is OK. That's as far as I will go with it. Also, I didn't like the Mustang from somewhere in the very early 70's until the 2005 version.

    I hate that little cube car that looks like it came out of a video game. Terribly ugly. Forget what it is called.

    Hated the Pacer.

    The H3. Can't call it a Hummer because it is a "Crossover". Awful. Make up your mind. Either drive over a construction site or don't. Don't make something look half-a&& about it.

    Didn't like the Escort much. It wasn't a terrible car, it was just terrible relative to the fact it kept winning awards. Way too boring to be winning awards.

    Huge double cab pickups with long beds driven by 23 year old girls that can't park them.

    You know, colorful hyperbole aside, I agree with you? A few years ago I rented a Corolla and drove it to Indiana, then Kentucky, and back to Kansas. Most boring car I ever drove.

    Oversized SUVs and the Prius.
    Hemi Cuda story via another forum:
    The car sounds like a beast, shakes the ground around it and it isn't unusual for folks to say stuff about how the car looks or sounds. 99.999% of the time it is positive or a thumbs up - but this morning was different. I wasn't sure I even heard anyone - because it is fairly loud, even when idling - but, I heard it again. I looked out the passenger window and there was this nerdy looking young fella in a Prius or some other foreign hybrid looking thing. When we made eye contact, I was expecting a thumbs up or something like that. Instead, he shouted at me: "you're killing the planet in that damned thing!!". Well, I couldn't let that pass without messing with him. I revved it up like Iwas getting ready to stage it on the starting line and while looking at him I motioned to my ears while shaking my head back and forth and mouthed to him that I couldn't hear him over the car... awesome!

    The cars don't annoy me, it's the drivers. Any, usually rusted, pick up with the battle flag in the back winder and a decal of that knucklehead kid taking a leak .

    I love you, friend!

    I was in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago and there were Prius (rhymes with Pious) everywhere. I wanted to puke. We were cruising along the interstate and I saw a BMW M5 with a license plate that read IH8PRII, I made the dartgirl snap a couple of pics. That was a classic.

    Really only the US version of the Smart car annoys me.

    Less power, poorer transmission, worse mileage than the Euro version...in fact worse mileage than a number of compact cars (Versa, 2, etc.) that perform as well and have much more room.
    Only advantage; being able to park straight in in a parallel spot.


    otherwise, yeah it's drivers not cars that annoy me.


    Well, maybe Hummers a bit...especially when the number one complaint of Hummer owners is the gas mileage...doh.

    The Pontiac Sunfire, mostly because I had one and it was a steaming pile of plastic crap!

    There were so many of these spinning wheels on Washington street heading East after Canal in Chicago. Some had to back up in massive traffic and just park it in the bus lane.

    I don't agree.

    I think certain types of drivers buy certain cars. Old people (slow drivers) used to buy Buicks - now they buy Toyotas.

    Trashy Italians love the Avalanche!

    It is takes a special person to own an Aztek!

    Pontiac is by far my favorite make. At one time their designs were so unique and just great.

    But from the 1980's on it was generally plastic - bulbus crap on the outside and inside.

    The G6 and G8 was a good step forward however.

    Smart Car - I don't care how they do things in Europe, that thing is not safe for driving in America.
    Hummer - I don't think one fits in a standard parking space.
    Scion xB and Nissan Cube - Admittedly, I've never seen either outside of its packing crate.
    El Camino - Is it a car? Is it a truck?
    Subaru Justy - Early (failed) experiment with CVTs. Have never trusted CVTs since.
    Some fans claim one series or another runs "real race cars." What's everybody else running, fake race cars? :confused:

    INDYCAR - NOW IZODIER THAN EVER!
