Picking the best cars of the year is rather pedestrian. Plenty of automobiles qualify because competition among manufacturers just keeps getting better. But the worst cars of 2012? That's more difficult. Are there really 10 horrible new cars?
CNN.Money.com thinks so. It stops short of calling the selectees to its dubious honors list the worst cars. Rather Alex Taylor III, an at-large senior editor, lumps models from Honda, Nissan, BMW, Chevrolet, Fiat, Jaguar, Infiniti on his 2012 Most Disliked Cars list.
For example, here's how the Taylor in part describes the Honda Civic, his pick as the most disliked of the disliked cars on his list:
"Seemingly designed for the recession generation, the bland, cheezy, ninth-generation Civic went on sale in April to almost universal derision."
About the Nissan Division, Taylor says:
"Twenty-two years old this fall, Nissan's luxury brand remains a misshapen lump."
And of the BMW 550i GT, Taylor comments:
"The 550i has stalled out. Blame it on its excessive weight (two-and-a-half tons), high price ($65,000) or ungainly proportions, the 550i remains a rare misstep for the Bavarian marketing machine."
