** Sometimes, an [=AI=] car would fall into the ground on the start of the race and vanishes in ''3''. It's also a GameBreakingBug too: The [=AI=] seems to reach the maximum speed the game can handle and thus causing it to crash.

Added DiffLines:
** Kazunori Yamauchi and the Skylines thanks to the CreatorProvincialism issue the game has. Miatas also apply here.

Added DiffLines:
** The same thing applies to Vauxhall/Opel, where the only difference is the badge and the country.

Added DiffLines:
** Route 11 from ''1'' and ''3'', but ''your mileage may vary alot here''. Route 11 while being despised by alot of people due to sheer difficulty and complexity, it's also one of the most requested tracks to be added in the future [=GT=] games.

Added DiffLines:
*** To explain why this mission is the reason why many players can't 100% the game, here's the scenario: You are given a Mercedes SLR where like the game says, it handles like a fish out of water. Any mistake or scratch or even going to the grass one bit result in the car going out of control and crash. To make things worse, you don't just start racing, rather you must wait a long time to actually get out of the grid. Then, there is the track itself: It's Nurburgring, one of the longest track of the world, filled with difficult and twisted corners while having a narrow and very bumpy road, which fucks up entirely the car's stability. But the worst of them all is that the driving missions has the stupid 5-second penalty, which forces you to run at 50 kilometers an hour for five seconds. After you do proper practice, the first half of the 'Ring is simple, but the second half is an issue because it's the half where you must overtake and any bump into an opponent while overtaking causes you to get penalized and because the track is narrow as hell, bumping in the opponents is very easy. The only redeeming factor of the mission is that should you be crazy enough to do the 34 missions before going to the actual game, [[DiscOneNuke you will be awarded with nearly 200 thousand credits, one good starter car and 3 powerful racing machines, one of them being a Le Mans Prototype.]] ''You must do the Mission 34 to get the Nissan [=R89C=] Le Mans, be warned.''

Added DiffLines:
** In ''2'', there will be the [=GT40=] in the Historic Car Cup, [=591HP=] Mid Engine Challenge and Apricot Hill [=200KM=]; the Peugeot 306 Rally in the [=NA=] Tuned Cup and the [=240SX=] Drag Car in the Test Course race in the Turbo Tuned Cup.

Added DiffLines:
** Some people do not like at all the lack of Used Car Dealership in ''3'', primarly because getting a starter car becomes much more difficult.

* SerialEscalation: As the series has gone on, the best cars have gotten progressive more insanely fast and maneuverable, while the worst cars have been setting new standards in rubbishness.

* TheRival: In the first game, if your competitors are driving race modified cars, one of them ''will always'' be driving a Subaru Imprezza Rally Edition with a couple of exceptions; the US vs UK championship (where it's not allowed to enter) and the UK vs Japan championship (Mazda, Toyota and Honda always enter this one, while Subaru, Mitsubishi and Nissan always have the US vs Japan championship). And he is always the one who will give you the most trouble.

** ''Tourist Trophy'' has Yamaha [=TZ250=] Challenge Mode. While most other challenges in Challenge Mode are easy, this one is the most-threatening: you are pitted against ridiculously two small-but-fast Yamaha [=TZ250=] on just ''two'' laps of Tsukuba Circuit, which is already frustratingly short. And you can only overtake one on each lap. Even if you're skilled, you may end up only overtaking one rider on entire race, thus ''you need to start over and over to win that bike''. And you need to own that bike - as well as the smaller sibling, the [=TZ125=] (that has the same challenge to obtain it, except you only race against one [=TZ125=] - for progression, since there are an one make events requiring those bikes.

* TheAllegedCar: A few cars throughout the series that should be great, or have real life pedigree, have major flaws that make them borderline undriveable and using them a SelfImposedChallenge; the Honda NSX-R special model in the first game with lowrider-esque suspension that starts jumping and nearly flips over when you approach a corner, the TVR Speed 12 in the second that just spins all the time, the Suzuki Escudo in 3 as mentioned further up. Alternatively, cars can be this for just being plain uncompetitive. The Daihatsu Midget in the second game takes some beating, ''even the in game spiel openly mocks it''.

** The GT-One was pretty broken on its debut in 2 too; once tuned, sans the Drag 180 SX it had the highest top speed in the game while still being plenty maneuverable. Still not as good as the Escudo all round, but not far off, and for half the price.

** The GT-One was pretty broken on its debut in 2 too; In 1, once fully tuned, sans the Drag 180 SX it had Nissan R33 Skyline, Mitsubishi GTO Twinturbo and Toyota Supra RZ all churned out over 900 horsepower. You could just outspeed everyone to victory with an advantage that big. All were nerfed in subsequent games to the highest top speed in the game while still being plenty maneuverable. Still not as good as the Escudo all round, but not far off, and for half the price.6-700 HP mark.

** In 2, winning the race at Red Rock Raceway in GT All Stars; you get a TVR speed 12 every time, which sells for half a million a go. Get the Unisia Jecs Skyline from the Grand Touring race at Midfield Raceway mentioned above, and you'll win quite easily and soon be able to afford the Escudo Pikes Peak mentioned top.

** Also notable is the [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Crowning Music Of Funny]] license test fail tune from the fourth game. The second game, whenever you failed, played the same upbeat music as when you passed, quickly leading to controller-throwing anger. The third game played a slightly sympathetic slower tune, but which eventually it felt as though it was mocking you. Realising they couldn't prevent feelings of anger from the player, in the fourth game they went with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Q7FFjUpVLg this]].
