JC is a funny guy. yes he likes Brit cars the most, but hey i have to admit i do agree with most (NOT all) of the things he says.
the Perodua Kelisa is one crappy car
IMO the accent is not that great either (ok it did not deserve worst car of the year award)
agreed with their Indica review too

I just did a quick search in my JC articles archive (have hundreds). The word "worse" has appeared 150 articles (upto April 2006) and "worst" in 104 articles.

JC should keep quiet and be less expressive if he continues he will get more trouble with Malaysian Government.He is funny but he should be carefull.If next time he tells bad things about the malaysian cars , for sure Mp will not appreciate.Perodua and Proton try their best to do cars

Calling the models crappy is one thing, applying hammer and blowing them up is another thing. I too would find it offensive if some one resorts to this utter nonsense. British food is crap, every one knows it. That does not warrant buying british food and throwing it in junk infront of a TV Camera.

as JC would say, getting your leg chopped off is bad, but looking at that ugly "thing" is worse

Well, in one particular episode of Top Gear, I think it was the Lamborghini Special from 2004, Jeremy Clarkson called Britain the worst country in the world.
He's also blown up a few Brit cars - including throwing a Jag XJS (my favourite car) from a ship into the sea. So, I really don't think anyone over here or outside should be complaining. The fact remains that JC is the most entertaining and arguably the best TV show host around. Try watching Fifth Gear for a while and see how much it sucks compared to Top Gear.

Clarksons dark sense of humor only appeals to a small percentage of people,leaving that aside, I think that even though he's pompous and all that he's still jeremy clarkson...and thats that.Oh and check the pillar positions on both cars and window lines,I'm guessing the one who thinks its the same car needs a LASIK done AND ON THAT BOMBSHELL,ladies and gentlemen its time to sign off!

JC is just an television entertainer who happens to prefer car based themes for his brand of humor. One can't take his word seriously on anything. Would you base a car purchase based on his reviews, it is just entertainment.

This is like taking exception to Daily news from Jon Stewart.
