* OlderThanTheyThink: The announcement of the new hosting line-up in early 2016 provoked many accusations that the BBC were bowing to political correctness by daring to have presenters who weren't white men. Even though the pre-2002 show had almost as many female presenters as male ones, and also a handful of occasions where ethnic minority presenters would have host a segment on the show.

** When Clarkson couldn't get his car out of the mud, he shouted in frustration "I hate working on Top Gear!" That was in his last episode, one he was only featured in & wasn't allowed back to host.

** When Clarkson couldn't get his car out of the mud, he shouted in frustration "I hate working on Top Gear!" That was in his last episode, one he was only featured in & wasn't allowed back to host. In fact, the assault that lost him the job took place when he got back to the hotel from that particular shoot.

* ReplacementScrappy: Chris Evans has not been well-received, being the target of a never-ending barrage of criticism from the moment rumors about his potential selection started to come up. On the other hand, Matt Le Blanc was very well received with critics and viewers noting that he simply slipped into the presenting role as if he'd been doing it his entire life.

*** In the episode that aired just prior to the accident, Hammond crashes a van. Harsh or Hilarious depending on your point of view:
--> '''Clarkson:''' So... actually, he could be dead.
--> '''May:''' Well, there's a police car at the scene of the accident, so...
--> '''Clarkson:''' Well, if he is dead, and you fancy a job on TopGear, why don't you write to us at "I'm better than Richard Hammond ''was''"
--> '''Hammond:''' I may have overcooked that a bit.
--> '''Clarkson:''' BBC, Woodlane, London, W12 70S.

* MoralEventHorizon: After years of tolerating and defending Jeremy Clarkson's racist/sexist/classist/etc. attitudes (because he brought in huge ratings), the BBC finally decided that he wasn't worth the trouble after he verbally and physically assaulted a producer because he couldn't have a steak when he wanted one.
