There can only be one worst offender when it comes to vehicles of the 2016 model year, and the dubious distinction goes to the Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG. From our first look at this monster at the 2015 New York Auto Show, it was clear its raison d’etre was pure excess. It offers 621 horsepower and an ungodly 738 pound-feet of torque courtesy of a handcrafted 6.0-liter bi-turbo V12. Such disregard comes at the steep base price of $217,900. Featuring 11 miles per gallon economy in city driving, it set itself apart from the pack with a green score of 20.

There are 9 more and 4 of them are a Mercedes.:frown:

Clearly the pollsters don't drive uk roads.


First five places go to any diesel taxi, followed by diesel vans, diesel buses, diesel trucks and finishing with VW diesels.


You see a pattern forming?


LACK OF MAINTAINANCE


And cheating the system, of course.

Dan, I have seen worse on the road.


On a couple of occasions I've pulled up, or changed route, to avoid them.
Now we have the slk I can just nip in front and squirt hairspray into their intake.


Nowt like watching a smokey engine eat itself.
