If I’ve learned one thing in the automotive world, it’s that we all absolutely positively hate a lot of stuff. There are brand rivalry arguments that go on for days and can tear friendships apart. There are just certain types of cars that make us cringe every time we see them. And there are just those god-awful models that change the scope of the auto industry for the worst.


I’m the kind of person who has strong opinions. Y’all know how much I hate the brodozers that plague the south and every possible rural area in the midwest. But that’s just me.

So, I wanna know. What car do you absolutely hate? Which car ruins your day every time you see it? What terrible, horrible, awful car do you wish had never been made?

Every. Single. Crossover. Not as good as a proper SUV for off-roading, with worse handling/acceleration/fuel economy/weight/comfort (higher=more nauseating body roll) than an equivalently spacious hatchback/wagon. A compromised class of vehicle that’s supposed to be good at everything but in reality sucks at everything. What’s the freakin’ point?
