Default What is the most overrated car?

Just curious as to what everyone thinks. My pick is the Acura NSX. Looks cool but, for the price you pay its totally not worth it to me. Just my opinion

the wrx...why?
because of all the tools that think that just because they have a wrx, they are ...
1. a rally driver
2. have THE best handling car in the universe
3. gods gift to tree huggers everywhere
4. going to get out of any type of situation just because they have AWD...
5. going to have to get Radar Love on cd, so they can drive the twisties all the while executing crappy shifts, looking into thier lovers eye and pursing thier lips.


I need another beer...

You wont be calling me retarded when you realized that you paid $150,000+ for a powerful piece of crap. Besides, you could get a used powerful piece of crap for less than $20,000- the F-body.

Default well, overpriced at least

ACURA NSX...definitely overpriced, but from the reviews i've read, it's too slow for what it's priced at, and being an excotic super sports car...and also too heavy.

looks real nice though, but old stylin now

that's my vote

o000ooo000ooo....


hahah fbodys suck!! hahah..... wait.......


what build quality issues have u heard reguarding the s1? ive not heard any so far.

i think tha allure of the car is more that its a "supercar" more than brute power. its 2600lbs with around 320hp powered by a 32 valve DOHC v8 with a 6speed. sounds ok to me, besides its a carol shelby car, that means a lot to people, look at the 427.

its definetely up there on my overrated list, but i wouldnt go as far to call it a 'piece of crap'



ac_gohan, i used to think that aboot the skyline too, until i read about that yellow motorex runing incredibly low et's with the only modifications being new turbos and a 150 shot of the funny stuff.

NSX-Overrated?? how so?? going fast in a straight line?? yes...but ont he track hell no, it's gotten such incredible reviews, i think one of the best quotes ever was "the closest thing to an F1 car for street driving"

I'd almost have to agree on the WRX but i can't because of Hummer, hummers are the most OVER RATED POS's on the planet. They are bulky, ugly, and just an out right high class soccer mom mobile...(i have yet to see a hummer, on grass, dirt, or sand, or in water)

it looks like alot of you think the NSX is way over rated...

huh... i've never really thought about it that way... esp when you look at the fact that it is an extreamly easy car to drive with little skills... it is fairly fast in the 0-60's and even better when your going through the twisties... and it looks like an exotic... well i guess the best part about it is that it doesn't act like one when you actually buy it....
you don't have to garage it in fear the the engine will die; it will be reliable; it will see 100,000 miles; and it won't guzzle gas...


MOST OVERRATED: FORD MUSTANG ANYTHING

I know I am going against the grain on this one too, but I agree with Jeremy on the NSX. It may not be brutely powerful, but I would say $90,000 is a good price for a high quality, civilized exotic that can kick serious ass at the track. I think the people that made Getaway in Stockholm 3 would agree with us too.

BTW: Ever heard the sound of one? It is... just... beautiful.
