Cars That Make Us Do 180s

I, along with many car enthusiasts, admit to having my certain biases towards one car or another, sometimes for no good reason. For example, I used to absolutely despise any Volkswagen Auto Group (VAG) brands.This bias branched from the overly apparent phenomenon of experience before knowledge. In the mid-2000s, my father replaced his archaic yet classic 1991 BMW 318i. The E30 was a gem in my eyes. Despite the constant problems it had since he took delivery in ’91, it was an E30, it was white, it was manual, and it may have been the lethargic 4-banger model, but it was damn smooth. The vehicle he replaced it with? A 1999 VW Jetta 2.0.
