I think my 06 Buick Lucerne is pretty exciting myself....
That list is completely craptastic.
Oh, it came from Time? That explains it.

Kia Soul - KGB nostalgia.
Where’s the Smart Car?
A Volkswagon Golf???
First off, Volkswagons are the crappiest built car ever made. Simply replacing a headlight is extended from a 2 minute snap into a 15 minute minute ordeal (not counting the on-line research, etc.). The engineers figured that they’d be creative by engineering cars from scratch, but they lost 100 years of discovering what not to do. For starters: don’t run electrical cables loosely right past the ash tray, or else be prepared to have your car’s electrical system require service every time anyone uses or fiddles with the ash tray. And why would I ever think of looking on the roof to find the clock? (At least the emergency flashers’ button are in a nice, very visible place. God help the person who drives an unfamiliar Buick without being instructed to feel around on top of the steering column for it.)
To Hell with the Smart Car? Where’s the Tesla?
The list is poorly named. Exciting Vehicles? No motorcycles or jet aircraft? Forget it.
The list should be named “The Most PC Cars on the Market Today.”
Hyundai Genesis Coupe
This is a pretty nice car.
I’ve driven the sedan, and saw the coupe recently.
The only thing wrong with it is the canted “H” sympon in the middle of an otherwise beautiful grill/intake. Remove it, black it out or replace the grill and it’s good to go.
It’s a new improved Tiburon!
A car ride with Ted Kennedy behind the wheel would be a hell of a ride, literally.
Wow - what a bunch of non-choices for me - you could probably give me one but I wouldn’t be seen in most of them! I’ll just say other than the Taurus - they are effeminate
Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty. - Ronald Reagan
Uh...That’s the top ten? Need to read no further.
You are right. The guys from Mythbusters lamented the same thing in my last issue of Popular Mechanics. They basically said those designing cars today had never worked on cars in their past. They have no idea that placing something (like a battery) in a great spot for space-saving purposes, takes a 5-minute job of replacing the battery to a 2-hour ordeal. Of course, that’s not to say that all past mechanical developments were better (V-8 Monzas, and changing the rear spark plugs, come to mind).
What is exciting about the Venza? Waiting to see if it will qualify for round two of Cash For Clunkers? It’s a station-wagon with 18 MPG. There’s not an interesting car here.
Toyota Venza? Is this a competition for the most snooztastic car of the year?
KIA Sephia - Killed in Action - Syphilis.
