    Are there any often-derided features of cars that you seem to like?

    For me, it's:

    - Vinyl roofs. They get one hell of a share of hatred, but I love their contrasting appearance and facture.

    - Screens on top of the dashboard. Sure, they do often look like an afterthought, but what is a better place for them than the driver's line of sight?

    I'd say some people do seem to dislike woody wagons for particular reasons, although I think otherwise. Woody wagons are great at giving the wagon a certain style to them, and also often fit with the design language of said wagons. Also, I like how most of those woody wagons actually have authethic wood, not plastic-y/fake wood.

    Mostly CVT transmission. A lot of people seem to not like how they behave (i.e. they dont shift gears like a "normal" transmission) but I personally like the smoothness it adds to the car.

    You mean woody wagons as in wood-bodied car, or as in cars that seem to have wood on the side?

    Yeah, wagons that have wood on their side profiles is what I'm referring to.

    That's real wood, which is not necessarily a good material for making cars.

    Yeah, that's what I meant with authenticity in my previous post.

    You do have a point there, which is likely why they had to switch to fake wood later on in the 20th century (and 21st century partially).
