Overall, 2014 has been an outstanding year in the car world. But that doesn't mean there weren't some disappointments. What stood out as the most disappointing car thing of 2014?

I'm going to have to say that the Volkswagen Group has made some of the most disappointing decisions of 2014. But the biggest offense would have to be the debut of the Golf R Wagon at the LA Auto Show without the intention of ever selling it in America.

Seriously. Even though it almost definitely wasn't VW USA's decision, the idea that you'd show a car that everyone in this country would lust after is a foul. A big foul.
