Mine, 2017 Mustang GT, I only live 3 miles from work, yet I find myself having to fill up with fuel once a week.

Why......... Because some moron thought a 61L fuel tank was sufficient, it seems to manage about 220 Miles to a full tank.

So annoying, as I hate filling up with fuel, im sure they could have got a 100L tank in it?

It has to be the sunroof that piddles water in your eyes when it rains and rust bits when it doesn't.
I mainly make the wife drive it.

Volvo S90- controls for the fan, heated seats etc. are all part of the touch screen system. I don't care what anyone says but physical buttons will always be far more convenient.

Have a guess what car this is by the "annoying bits"

reverse is not easy to get into
no rear leg room
bloody indicators with the "soft touch 3 flash thing"....mind you nearly all modern cars have this
boot tiny
everyone has one

One of the keycards refuses to unlock the doors. Everything else on it is fine ( lock and start ). Of course it's the one I inevitably grab first when in a rush...

The creaky door seals.

BMW have applied tape but as soon as the car gets dirty it comes back. I only notice it when doing slow speed manoeuvres but it drives me up the wall.

Rear boot struts have failed and I CBA to replace them..

Being a Coupe, the Doors are just stupidly to wide and make it a PITA to get in and out of it in a multistorey...

My dad had this. Silicone spray from Halfords every month or so kept it quiet.

Electric parking brake in my V70. Stupidly placed by the light controls, just out of convenient reach. Why not put it by the gear lever for heaven’s sake?

Wow can see that must get annoying, what mpg do you get?*

Mine
Lexus CT - same as your problem - small petrol tank so regular topping up. 35l tank which normally gets around 320miles range.

Porsche - couple of annoying interior rattles.

Eta - *around 16mpg it seems (doing the math)

Most annoying on mine was depreciation smile


As for actual niggles, very few and far between that I couldn't cure with coding or modifying. The one stand out point tough was over dampening which made it a wee bit bouncy on most UK roads! Mine was an M140i which sold on Thursday and is being replaced with a mustang GT on Tuesday so I'll be interested to see if I get the same range woes as the Op!

Armrest not adjustable and too far back to be useful

GT86 - the abruptness of the clutch. Shoe choice when driving becomes important, and if you're tired or cold then its very easy to end up kangerooing like a learner when you first pull away.
