Hi,
It looks like your building the car using nurbs which for your second model ever could be a bit of a handful.
IMO you should learn to make things in polys
Also it looks like your trying to put to much detail into the car to early
In my experience I prefer to model the car using polys all as one piece so that includes the windows and everything as a shell of the car once I am happy with the basic shape I extract the different parts and then add more detail in afterwards.

Just my honest Comments

Rob

A little desperate for C&C are we? hehe
I think the car modeling looks quite good, especially as you just started with maya. Although I do agree with Rob here about the basic shape and working in polys.
Like this I think it'll be also very hard to render properly because of all the different surfaces and if one doesn't close up on another it won't look so good.
Keep it up, would like to see some progress.
