Goofs

In Cars 2, McQueen raced around the world in the World Grand Prix. If Sterling is McQueen's most advocate fan, how did he not know about McQueen competing in that race, let alone having pictures FROM it? See more »

Good Sequel! Better than the Cars 2
30 September 2018 | by MynameisromanSee all my reviews

The first Cars movie was awesome and it jumpstarted a lot of rip-offs tv shows for children. talking cars or talking planes everywhere nowadays... cars was the origin and of course there have been two sequels to that movie. while the first sequel felt forced onto the franchise this one here fits perfectly. a great continuation about how his career would develop over the years. he's not a rookie any more... he's not as fast as he used to be... he needs to find out how to solve this... the hints about where the story goes are subtle and reach the right conclusion in the end. and its feels like this might also be the final movie for the franchise but who knows... it a solid 7. if you loved the first one you will love this one as well
