TOP 10 Worst Cars Ever Made

really bad car

Over the years, there has been much debate as to which particular make and model car is the undisputed, undeniable worst car ever made. The truth is that although we can take a close look at the facts, the only person that can really determine what the worst car ever built, is yourself. This is simply because many of the the factors that collectively work to determine the worst cars, are factors that tend to be a matter of preference rather than a hard fact. For instance, the Pontiac Aztec is considered by many to be one of the worst cars ever, mainly due to its non-traditional, commonly unpopular exterior styling. This is not a fact, however a car having been proven to demonstrate the worst reliability record or to be the slowest car in the world, would be considered trusted, evidential information in which could be considered as a determinate in quantifying a crappy car.

Others would argue that you should consider the cars styling into the equation more, by means of quantifying it with a ratio of the sales forecast for that results and the styling being the obvious culprit to the shortfall. Some of the worst cars ever made are poorly manufactured, others have extraordinarily unpopular designs, while still others where doomed to fail via another dynamic, like bankrupting the manufacturer solely because of that car becoming an amazing flop. In our opinion there have been some pretty cool cars that have done the latter and bankrupted their creator. Take the De Lorean DMC 12 (as seen in the Back to the Future movies). This car is awesome if you ask us. It boasts some striking doors, similar to a classic Mercedes Gullwing coupe and the body panels were constructed out of stainless steel, which is something that you don’t see everyday. Despite the cool car elements the De Lorean had, it was still certainly a flop in the way that it had poor performance and handling, the car doors were improperly engineered and ultimately the car company went bankrupt because of the significantly less-than-expected sales figures.

There are many cars that are considered to be a bad car. The worlds worst cars have been created from nearly every manufacturer (some more than others), and can be found in every class of vehicle ranging from sports cars, luxury cars, economy cars, exotic cars and everything in between. Some of the most well known bad cars in the last couple decades are the Ford Pinto, AMC Gremlin, the notoriously tipsy Suzuki Samurai and the Chevy Citation. The history of the Automotive industry is jam-packed with colossal failures, but it is ultimately up to the individual to decide what the worst cars ever built in the world are to them.

    I still recall seeing the Mustang II at the 1974 Auto Show with my dad. We stood there in complete shock and disbelief. They called it a “Ghia” and had opera windows and painted brown. They got the color right- it was a color keyed $hit$tain from bumper car bumper end to end. Even GM built something decent that didn’t look like a cartoonish abomination of a real Mustang a year later (Monza)- and had they called in “Camaro”- unlike this turd , it wouldn’t seems so offensive and distastful today just as it wasn’t in 1975.

    As these lists go, this is a good one, but I’m not sure I would have included the Mustang II. Yes – it was really a Pinto under the skin, but there were a couple of decent sporty models. We make fun of it these days as “not a real Mustang,” but it was a very popular car in its day.
