When top gear tests a car and think that it is rubbish they actually say "this car is a load of rubbish, don't buy it", something they have said about some American cars on more than one occasion. Not that they pick on American cars, the BMW X3 was declared about the most pointless car you can buy, a useless saloon car and a useless four wheel drive.
I am interested to know.
As you might have noticed Hammond and May are both motorcyclists and Clarkson hates them.
It plays on BBC America every few days.
