Some people say that most cars have their merits. You may agree or disagree, but there is a certain number of cars we are not sure about. The statement “there are no bad cars anymore,” is largely true, but that doesn’t mean we love everything we get behind the wheel of.
The 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo encapsulates all the things that used to make compact segment unappealing. Every aspect of the car seems adequate at best, and phoned-in at worst. The interior brings back “economy” as an adjective for cheap, emphasized by a chintzy handbrake lever and an adjustable steering wheel that wants to drop into your lap whenever you try to adjust it. The second car we dislike is the 2016 Buick Cascada. There is nothing fundamentally wrong with the car – and we've pointed out, few vehicles today are truly and intrinsically flawed. This one just commits the sin of being boring.
The 2017 Toyota Sienna is comfortable, big, and reasonably well-equipped. At the same time it's also outdated. The interior looks and feels like it's from another time. We were also disappointed by the 2016 Dodge Dart SXT. There was no large-screen Uconnect system, no heated seats, no sunroof. The paint was a boring shade of blue, the interior was a ho-hum wasteland of black monotony, and the driving experience was dull. In fact, we love these cars. We are just trying to be honest here. So, you decide what is better for you.
