Pseudo-Driver Assist technologies. I rented a car with lane assist and blind spot lights. Hated it. When I’m driving in bumper to bumper traffic the last thing I want is to have to argue with my car while it beeps and tries to redirect me the whole time. Until cars are driving themselves I’d rather just do it myself.

Auto start/stop - my most hated recent car tech
DRL’s - don’t need them
Cheap chrome features - hello Honda Civic and Kia Stinger
Whale sharks grills
Putting a wing and red seat belts on family commuters - hello Camry TRD

Here we go again . You are not a psychic, and itís not your place to tell someone what they do or do not need.

The front end of the new F250/350 does have a Griswald family truckster look to it.

You must be a youngster if you never seen Christmas vacation. Lol lol

Christmas vacation used a normal Taurus wagon, I was referring to the Wally World one from Ď83.

And one step further, some automarkers aren't even providing a disable button anymore. I had to get an aftermarket module to disable the auto-start-stop in the car I bought this year.

Also for me:
1. Infotainment - I am DRIVING, I don't need a bunch of stupid apps. Keep it simple to stereo and navigation
2. Everything has to be a friggin' CUV
3. Compact sedans have gotten more and more "stubby"-looking; the hatchback variants (if available) look so much better
4. Fastback rooflines that lead to small trunk openings - why not make it a damn hatch opening at that point??

I think the same thing about my 2015 Elantra. The trunk is smaller than the rear window. Hyundai came out with the Ionic hybrid. Though itís a sedan, itís also a hatchback. Rear roofline slopes like my Elantra, but itís a hatchback. Thatís the way these compact sedans should be if theyíre going to slope like that.
