Numerous Means Consisting of a great number of units or individual objects; being many;

In the sentence I like numerous of the cars. I don't know which one to choose.

Numerous refers too many.

That means I like many cars, Im confused to choose one from them.

That's not quite correct.

The reason 'numerous' cannot be used in this sentence is because it is not used with 'of the'.

I like numerous cars - I like a number of different cars.
I like numerous of the cars - incorrect grammar.
