all the cars you nominated for ten best and worst of 2016

After cleaning up the data as much as I could considering this smashing headache I’m managing today, I’ve crunched the numbers and come out with a magic number: 242. That’s the total number of vehicles you nominated that were eligible for this year’s Ten Best and Ten Worst.

Here they are, in order of Best to Worst, for your reading pleasure.

Before we begin, it’s important to understand what the “Net Nomination Score” actually is. We took the number of Best nominations and subtracted the number of Worst nominations. The further down the list a vehicle lives, the worse it is, according to you.

Also, this is how the candidates were presented to writers, more or less. The more extreme the score in nominations, the further up the vehicles were on the Best/Worst voting sheets. That means you have mucha influencia in the final Tens.

So, without further ado …

    Interesting list, of which I didn't participate. I'd bet if TTAC tried this again many commenters, myself included, would happily participate. What stopped me originally is there wasn't 10 vehicles best &/or worst that I've driven or ridden in to comment about, and if I commented now I'd only have 5 vehicles to rate.

    Why did the Volkswagen Golf score so well?

    • Mopar4wd Mopar4wd on Apr 29, 2016

      I assume the Golf is almost purely due to GTI and R votes. I'm a former VW fan turned to a hater and even I put the GTI up for a nomination.

  • Fred The bigger issue is what happens to the other systems as demand dwindles? Will thet convert or will they just just shut down?
  • Roger hopkins Why do they all have to be 4 door??? Why not a "cab & a half" and a bit longer box. This is just another station wagon of the 21st century. Maybe they should put fake woodgrain on the side lol...
  • Greg Add me to the list: 2017 Sorento EX AWD w/2.0 Turbo GDI 68K miles. Changed oil religiously with only synthetic. Checked oil level before a rare long road trip and Ievel was at least 2 quarts down. That was less than 6 months after the last oil change. I'm now adding a quart of oil every 1000 miles and checking every 500 miles because I read reports that the oil usage gets worse. Too bad, really like the 2023 Tuscon. But I have not seen Hyundai/Kia doing anything new in terms of engine development. Therefore, I have to suspect that I will ony become a victim of a fatally flawed engine development program if I were to a purchase another Kia/Hyundai.
