* BackSeatsAreJustForShow: The PlayerCharacters that hop into a car take the passenger's seat - even with the Car Built for Homer, which has a giant seat in the back. Averted in at least on mission where Lisa has to help Skinner run errands, Lisa hops in the passenger seat and his mother is sitting in the back.

* CameraScrew: Some locations force the camera in a specific direction, even if it will mess up a jump. First example is the Duff truck near the Kwik-E-Mart -- jump with the camera pointing towards the front of the truck and it turns to the side as soon as you hit the steam vent.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Simply put, the computer can drive any car faster than you can, ''better'' than you can, and is magically much heavier than the same car is under your control. CPU Bart's Ferrini in the Level 5 bonus races is THE SECOND-FASTEST car in the game, bar none (excluding the secret car in Level 1).
** However, this often is an inverse (or sometimes heavily played with) for higher-tiered cars that appear in the later levels; Snake's Lil' Bandit in the Level 2 mission Bart 'n' Frink is much slower compared to the original version, but is arguably the tankiest car in the game. Needless to say, the actual stats of certain cars in control of the player and CPU are very inconsistent in terms of who has the upper hand.

* DummiedOut: An [[JokeCharacter Ice Cream Truck]] exists in the game. The only way to drive it without hacking the game, however, is to achieve 100% completion and then use a special cheat code to call up otherwise-unobtainable vehicles from phone booths. It's uncertain whether the Ice Cream Truck was going to serve a purpose in the game, or if it's just an EasterEgg. It's worth noting that the truck has a Marge-shaped Ice Cream Cone atop it.
