Over the course of a year, I test drive a car each week, and usually a few more here and there.

Consequently, I get to see everything the vehicle market has to offer, from mass-market sedans and pickup trucks to electric cars to supercars.

By and large, I'm pleased by the quality and choice that's on offer.

But I still amass a list of complaints along the way. Here they are:

The supercharger hump on the Chevy Corvette ZR1. The ZR1 is magnificent, but the 755-horsepower motor is so amped up with a hood-busting supercharger that it's actually hard to see the road. Oh well, what are you gonna do?

The engine and transmission on the Toyota RAV4. For a crossover as popular as this, the crude throttle response and bumpy shifting was unacceptable.

The rear wing on the Honda Civic Type R. I know, I know. It's THAT kind of car. But I still don't have to like it.

As long as we're on Civic, I also dislike the tail lamp design. They look like a pair of crab craws!

Navigate on Autopilot in the Tesla Model 3. Rather than enhance the driving experience, I felt that it forced me to pay even more attention to Autopilot than I usually do.

The front end of the Bentley Bentayga. It's the front of a Bentley stuck onto the body of an Audi.
