Name a car youíd love to have a go in but donít like the manufacturer ?

As per question, there are car manufacturers Iím not to keen on and Iím sure itís the same with you be it their design language, badge appeal, reliability record or whatever else but there is a particular car youíd like to have a go in. For me itís Nissan and Toyota, but Iíd love to have a go at a GTR and GR Yaris. Both awesome cars and Iíd love to drive them. So letís hear it.

Love, love, love the look at the Mercedes Benz GT sports cars. But having owned a Merc, will never buy another one again.

Love the look of the current Discovery but having heard the horror stories about JLR reliability i don't think i ever want one.

Tesla! Apparently they turn out poorly finished motors and don't seem to give a flying fig for customers who complain. It's like they deign to allow you the opportunity to own their car?

^ This. Iíve never found a UK dealer who doesnít give the impression heís doing you a favour simply talking to you. My general experience over three decades is of an awful customer service experience through the whole ownership cycle. (My wife wonít change even though I wonít have them a my car any more.)

The good news is the thriving Indy scene because the official dealers are generally a bunch of entitled ******s.

Jaguar I like some of their styling, some of their engineering, but can deal with reliability issues.
Also depreciation is much too much.

Mercedes like the bigger models, but not one dealer has given me the exclusivity make feeling.

I stick to Lexus from now on, it covers both

RS3 but it's the arrogance of, and treatment from, the people selling and servicing them that totally tarnish the brand for me.

Seat Cupra and the new VW Golf GTi

I will probably never own another VAG car as long as i'm on the road, but they look fun
