* CriticalResearchFailure: Rutledge has done this numerous times on Top Gear, despite him being an automotive reporter and analyst.
** Rutledge notes in the "America's Strongest Pickup" episode that the current US Presidential Limousine (introduced in 2009) is based on the Chevrolet Silverado, when in reality, it's suspected to be based on a Chevrolet Kodiak chasis, with a raid on the parts bin from Cadillac coupled with tons of custom modifications and armour.

** The segment on the Subaru Impreza WRX STI includes a snippet that sounds a lot like the intro to {{Metallica}}'s "One."

* HateDumb: Most of the complaints seem to stem from the advertiser sponsership, shorter run-time and the prevelence of cheap car challenges.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: During season 1, Adam would introduce the show by saying that they wouldn't be doing things done on specific reality shows. For episode six, he says that no one [[TheApprentice will be fired.]] In season 2, one episode had the three trying to find a car for a mystery celebrity who turned out to be Donald Trump. After deciding on which of the cars to buy, he directly told [[spoiler: Tanner and Rutledge]] "I'm going to fire you."

* TransAtlanticEquivalent: Arguably (in some fans minds), one of the big reasons the US version's been as popular as it has is that it really does try to be as generally equivalent as it can. Including the attitude of "We are number one, every other show/car/country out there [[MysteryMen are number two or lower]]" that the original ''Top Gear'' had.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Quite a few fans of the UK version that finally warmed up to the US version during the second season didn't take too kindly that much of the studio features carried over from the original (Stig laps, car reviews, Star in a Reasonably Priced Car) were dropped come season three.

** All of the features lost in US Season 3 (See below) pissed off a few UK fans and US fans who liked them.

** In the Alaska special, Adam's 1977 Ford F250 was described as "...[looking] like the Unabomber's truck". The special aired one week after the Tucson shooting.
