5 cars you *dislike* the most

no particular reasoning, i am just not fond of these few. in some cases it has more to do with the typical driver-type ive found has them and less to do with the car itself
1. neon
2. volkswagens (gti i guess specifically)
3. camaro
4. cavalier
5. scion xb

Re: 5 cars you hate the most

Nice contribution, yourself.

In no particular order:

- Scion (all of 'em)
- Hyundai (all of 'em...most notably the Tiburon)
- Honda Element
- Any Chevy (current gen) that isn't the Corvette or a real Truck (the SSR is lame...good idea, horrible execution)
- Any Hummer that isn't the original

Dis-honorable Mention: Any car with an unpainted body-kit on it.

I know I'm about to really piss some people off.

Viper (I think it's the most over-rated car ever, the only reason it's able to stay ahead of most of the competition is because it has two extra cylinders and a good 3-4 liter advantage)

Eclipse (I see these things acting all bad ass and all, trying to take on Corvettes and crap, take a hint)

SSR (Corvette wanna-be with an un-usable bed)

Harly Davidson F-150 (what's the point of paying extra for that little emblem and then thinking that little emblem means the same as having SVT, SRT, or SS on the side?)

EVO (I could only take so much from kids saying how it kicked the shit out of that Yenko)

Now here is one I really like. I use to think it was a cool car but then I hated it due to the fan base that seemed to follow it. I then decided "fuck them" and realized that's with any car so I don't feel that way about it anymore and hopefully might be able to get one someday. That car is the Supra.

Re: 5 cars you hate the most

Chris, I understand what you're saying and for the most part agree, BUT....


There are just some cars that do thier intended purpose really badly, cars like:

The Nissan Skyline GTS: The car was supposed to be a cross between a luxury and a sports car, but came away with the comfort of a sports car and the performance of a luxury car. Poor weight distribution, no interior space and a weezy and pathetic standard engine, can't even shake off an SOHC Honda Accord.

The Nissan Serena- Unsafe, slow, unreliable, ugly, too narrow to be comfortable, unstable, the list of "uns" could go on

Lada Samara: Supposed to be a modern (For the 80's), reliable and economical car on the cheap, it missed the mark by miles, on all counts (Except cheap)

Mitsubishi Diamante: Supposed to be a spacious family car and to an extent it was, too bad they forgot that most Australians and New Zealanders (The market it was originally made for) also have boats (in the case of NZers) and caravans (in the case of Australians) and didn't give the car a transmission capable of towing without melting itself.

Suzuki Samuri: Oh come on, do I even need to explain?

Compared to cars of the teens and 20s, none of those cars is worth hating. Compared to other communist block cars, even that particular lada is a polished jewel. And the Samurai has a lot of faithful followers, and actually is a good car for it's job: being a small, economical, rugged car for primitive conditions. I've seen them survive a LOT of stuff, and be much more economical to operate than Jeeps. And as such, is a good marketplace option for basic Jeeps.

Come on... There was a time when car companies came into business and went out within a year or less for building seriously utter piles of crap that make a trabant look like a Rolls. Cars like the Imp:



And you think the Diamante is worth hating?

Guys, hate an individual example of a car, one that is falling apart, strands you, or is otherwise a POS. But don't hate on generalizations, maes, models, etc, even of the sae type as the car that stranded you, as other examples will not be as bad, and will have loyal followers who never had problems with them. Hating on a brand or model is the same closed minded generalization that leads to racism (dislike of the other). You just think it's acceptable because it's aimed at a machine. It's unintelligent, and not a valuable goal. I can't believe anyone is defending being hateful as though it's something you should strive for.
