Top 10 worst cars of all time!

PostBy: ceccil On: Tue May 29, 2012 5:48 pm

The list isn't all bad. Smitty should like this. There are a few GM's in there! I dont think the Corsair deserves to be there. I think it's a cool looking car. But I guess it's based on opinions when the car was produced.

I only owned one of them, a Vega. But I only drove it about 12 miles and one quart of oil.

I have to admit there are some strong contenders there. As the Yugo made the list then it's fair to consider overseas entries.

Citroen CV. Corregated iron body, everything cable driven actually very reliable but did you ever drive one?

All Jaguars after the wonderful 1938 SS. Lucas electrics and that was the good part. Somehow considered stylish and I bought four in my youth to attract the girls. The girls were not attracted and I walked home many times in the rain cursing my stupidity.

Audi 5000 - broke down 13 times in a year.

Caddy early 80s diesel - need I say more.

2004 Buick rendezvous - REALLY crappy engine.

Ford diesel trucks 2003 until ????

etc.

Let's not rush to judgment.

That has got to be the BEST review ever! :lol:




I hearby declare #1 to be null & void, and nominate one 2000 GMC Jimmy in it's place. What a colossal turd of EPA regulation & engineering stupidity this shitbox was. It was so bad that after 2 years of driving it, I parted it out, & installed it's engine in our '89 S10 Blazer ... which now pukes a quart of oil every 5 minutes out the oil pan gasket. :mad: The curse lives on ...

To tell you the truth, I'd rather have the poor running/handling cars of yesteryear than anything built this century. At least I could fix those easily, AND cheaply. Computers belong in offices - NOT cars. ;)

Didn't one of the popular magazines like Motortrend or somebody name the Vega or Pinto as "car of the year"? Shows you how much you can believe that crap. I did have a 1980 Mercury Bobcat 4 cyl 4 speed back in the early 90's, bought from the original owner 99,000 miles. Why do people sell cars at 99,000? I think i have bought 3 of them with that exact mileage. The Bobcat was t-boned at an intersection, i was on vacation from work, driving to work to get my check! Insurance company gave me more than i paid for it, sold it for $50, guy drove it all smashed up for a year or 2. Had to climb out the passenger side. There's Fiat back on road now, wonder how they will last?

Not on the list but my favorite car I ever owned was a '76 Chevy Nova. Darn thing always hissed when driving. Had a straight six. Someone once told me it was a cracked head causing the hiss. I don't know what it really was. Had to put in a qt. of oil once in a while and she kept right on running. I'm not what you would call a mechanic by any means but even with my limited knowledge of engines, I was able to work on that car myself for the most part. I wouldn't dare attempt much in the way of repair on the car and truck I have now.

Why stop at ten? They are ALL wonderful if they run.....but when they don't....they are all JUNK!!! 73 Vega GT, 80 Caprice diesel wagon, (look under the word JUNK, and you will see the entire diesel line from Olds, Chev, Pontiac.....and yes Cadillac! That was the end of GM for me...did a couple with the Pentagon Symbol....no better. A couple Tauruses.....still junk. Look at the Consumer Reports Auto issue...the black dots tell no lies.................

Citroen....Peug's....ANYTHING with Lucas electrics. Do not pass GO, go straight to the junk yard! :mad3: :mad2: :eek2: :flush:

If GM just used the Cummins 4BT diesel in the Cadillac for instance, it would have a cult following like the Mercedes 300 series.
