This thread is for sharing your reasons for not getting a certain brand, because of some observance (real or otherwise).

I'll start:

I would get a Subaru, but for some reason the doors feel and slam "tinny". Never mind that I know they have great crash ratings, and all wheel drive would be very beneficial to me; whenever I go to the showroom all it takes is for me to sit in the driver's seat and reach for the door to close, and it's all over for me.
