thats not bad at all for a first shot. there isnt much to critique since you're new to maya except that I would have probably started with a torus for the wheels. also, when you're asking for comments on your model, its good to add a wireframe shot of what your model looks like, so others can see how well you've managed your mesh and get an idea of how you arrived at the final result or help point out problems etc etc . keep it up

Practice practice practice, it's the only way to get better, looks nice for a first attempt.

ive been working on a car close to 200 hours now

save a lot
give the doors a shot with the split polygon tool that tool is gonna be a good friend
also a good start modeling a car is the BMW and Ferrari tutorials here on the site maybe try a easier tutorial first, i started with the Mech tutorial you learn alot how hard surface modeling works and alot of tools are explained if i were you should pick that one up
