* SoOkayItsAverage: Many consider the first movie okay, but a step down from usual Pixar quality. ''Cars 2'', while it has its fans, was generally considered to be mediocre at best and a step down from its predecessor.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Many consider The general consensus of the first movie okay, film (and to an extent, the series as a whole): not awful, but a step down from usual Pixar nowhere near Pixar's expected level of quality. In fact, before ''Cars 2'', while it has its fans, 2'' came along and took the title, Pixar fans loved to brag that [[TropesAreNotBad even their worst movie was generally considered to be mediocre at best and a step down from its predecessor.still]] ''[[TropesAreNotBad good]]''.

* OlderThanTheyThink: The cars all have their eyes on their windshields rather than on their headlights like how they're traditionally portrayed in media. This actually isn't anything new, as ''[[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts Susie The Little Blue Coupe]]'' featured the exact same thing ''64 years'' before this movie.

In fact, John Lasseter's decision to use this design is a ShoutOut to this very short.

** And then the trailer for the third movie came along and made everything DarkerAndEdgier, which confused people who weren't fond of the original movies and weirded out ''Cars'' fans. Fans were even less amused when it was revealed that Lightning's new rival, Jackson Storm, was basically a bundle of negative stereotypes about millennials (like being arrogant, entitled, and tech-obsessed).

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Mater is either the BreakoutCharacter or TheScrappy. The general medium ground is that, while he's tolerable in small doses (the first and third films, "Mater and the Ghostlight" and "Mater's Tall Tales"), the focus on him in the sequel was it's biggest flaw, and he quickly wore out his welcome.
* BellisariosMaxim: One of the reasons people are turned off by the series is simply because the mere concept raises a ''loooot'' of questions (how can cars print newspapers if they don't have hands? What does the inside of a car consist of? How do cars reproduce? Yadda, yadda, yadda...)

This is especially noticeable in the second movie, which goes all over the world but only "car-ifies" it with cheesy jokes rather than the more subdued internal logic of the first movie.

** ''Cars'' is easily Pixar's most [[LoveItOrHateIt divisive]] film. While there are those who find it just as good as any other Pixar film, the people who dislike it consider it a dumb concept by Pixar's standards and consider it to be their [[WesternAnimation/Cars2 now-second]] weakest film. [[TakeAThirdOption There are also those]] who like it despite it not being Pixar's best. The fact that this was the first film released after Pixar merged with Disney (though produced before said merger) and John Lasetter became Disney Animation Head didn't help matters.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: Doc claims that he never got a chance to show off what was left of him. Considering that the third film used dialog that Paul Newman himself previously recorded during production as John Lassester was keen on Paul remaining the voice of Doc, he ultimately did get to show a little more of him.

* MST3KMantra: As mentioned above, a world inhabited solely by vehicles lead to a lot of questions over how it functions like the real world does with regards to reproduction, consumption, ethnicity, etc. It's recommended (particularly by fans) not to think too hard about it.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The four tuner cars: DJ, Boost, Wingo and Snot Rod, who messed with Mack on the highway and inadvertently got McQueen lost in Radiator Springs are among the most [[OneSceneWonder memorable]] characters for their cool designs. As a result, they've returned in several of the games.
