Finally, scientific proof that my car, a Mazda MX-5 (avg. value 7.3), is better than my mom's, a Mazda Demio (avg. value -2.96)
This should be added to car card games.

Thank you! I wasn't going to bother "doing the math", but now I don't have to!
Toyota seem to be aiming low with the AURIS (-1.6) and YARIS (-2.04). Given what they say about cars, I look forward to the launch of the Toyota PENIS (-2.48).
And my dad's car when I was a child, COROLLA (-1,64).

Nope, it scores 3.77.
C = +27
I = -21
T = -18
R = +8
O = -80
E = -45
N = -46
Z = +83
X = +126
Total = 34
9 characters total
34 / 9 = 3.77...
The comic uses the average of all characters, including the manufacturer name.
Now, the Ford Focus is interesting. It scores a ridiculously low -21. But the "sporty" variant, the Focus ZX5, adds the top 3 scoring characters to the end, which makes it jump to 7.83! That's a huge increase for such a small change in the car.
Look again. The comic does in fact not use the manufacturers name, but only the model name, as evidenced by the made up names in the comic. So 104.5 is the correct average of the ZX model, but Randall divides that average by 10, as does the app linked to earlier, so the correct answer is 10.45.
