10 Worst cars ever?


David

Recommended Posts

Yahoo, reprinted a story by "The Street" that covers the top 10 WORST auto's ever in the world. Seems 8 of the top 10 are right here in the US.

Look at the 10 and tell me if you agree. They start by saying #10 is the 1979 Oldmobile Station wagon Diesel and end with the #1 worst Pontiac Aztek.

The pictures are in the order of the story. Their justification is interesting. Some of it I do feel is personal experiance versus actual fact, but each person is entitled to their opinion.

Yes on the Mitsubishi, Mustang II was the right car for the times, as Ford sold a bejillion of them, and it wasn't that bad of a car. Aztek was just GM ahead of the curve (look at the ugly products from BMW, Honda and others that follwoed that were actually much uglier) Vega was well engeneered and poorly executed, Yugo was just plain crap, but it was cheap, Edsel actually had some redeeming value before it became an utter Joke. Pontiac built cars alter with a similar grill to the edsel, and sold a bejillion of them...

There was nothing inherently "worst" about the Cimerron beside the badge.  It was just a typical domestic compact of the day. It could, and did, wear Buick and Oldsmobile badges just fine.

 

The Saturn ION doesn't deserve to be on this list either... if any Saturn does, it should be the LS/LW.  It was an Opel Vectra variation that foreshadowed the Epsilon platform. The engine choices went from bad (an underpowered Quad-4) to worse (the awful Opel 3.0 V6). The LS was also blander than bland. The ION's main offense was that it was initially equipped with a less than stellar CVT, though it later came with a 5-speed automatic. The Ion QuadCoupe was actually a pretty nifty idea and should have been put into other GM cars  (Cruze Quad-coupe anyone?)

 

The Mustang II was just a Sports Pinto... too easy to pick on but actually better than its donor platform.

      Kelly Blue Book has listed the ten vehicles that deprecate at alarming rate and top three happen to be electric vehicles. The Nissan Leaf according to KBB is projected to only retain 18 percent of its new-car price after five years. Behind the Leaf is the Fiat 500e which is expected to retain 21 percent and the Smart ForTwo EV which is expected to retain 21.5 percent.
      Few key items to keep in mind:
      Fiat 500e is only available to lease in California
      A number of automakers, like Nissan have been dropping the price of the EVs
      Electric vehicles come with a number of incentives from the U.S. and state governments, which in turn hurt the resale value

      Eric Ibara, director of residual consulting for Kelley Blue Book tells USA Today EVs have a problem of finding someone to buy a used one.
      "Pure electrics have been slow to catch on in the resale market." Customers "have been willing to buy a new one, not a used electric vehicle."
      As to why, Ibara doesn't have a good answer to this.
      The remaining seven vehicles on KBB's list are all luxury vehicles such as the BMW 7-Series, Lincoln MKS, and Jaguar XK.
      Nissan Leaf - 18%
      Fiat 500e - 21%
      Smart fortwo electric - 21.5%
      Jaguar XJ - 22.2%
      Volkswagen CC - 25%
      Mercedes-Benz CL-Class - 25.8%
      BMW 7 Series - 26%
      Volvo S80 - 27.3%
      Lincoln MKS - 27.5%
      Jaguar XK Series - 27.6%

      CNBC.com just released their 10 Ugliest Auto's of all time list.

      While concepts can WOW people and start a long life money maker like the Mustang. There are others that just leave people flat with the "What Happened?" attitude. Some of these models have been vindicated later down the road and other have just become a history footnote in a book.
      While i will list the 10 auto's here, Review the complete list at this site with their explanation and then sound off on whether you agree or disagree and why for this Top 10 Ugliest List.

      Rip Off or Compliment?
       
      Today MSN Auto asked and posted the following pictures on what people thought about one OEM auto company copying another OEM Auto company. This is very common in China where independent Chinese auto companies pretty much buy and clone every part in a established brand and sell it with no recourse or intellectual protection from the government for the name brands in comparison to markets like Europe and the US.
       
      69 Mustang versus 73 Toyota Celica
          Bentley versus Lincoln    
      Hummer Versus Dongfeng who still makes this Hummer rip off and sells to the Chinese military.
       

       
      Land Rover Versus Landwind
       

       
      Rolls Royce versus Geely
       

       
      Mercedes-Benz versus Kia
       

       
      Porsche versus Nissan
       

       
      So what are your thoughts? Should China enforce protecting intellectual property rights, should these companies have to pay for ripping off designs from other companies?
       
      How do you feel about it?

      Worst Used Cars
       
      Compare.com reviewed the insurance industry reports on auto's, accidents, quality reports and much more to build a 5 point list on used auto's and what NOT to buy.
       
      The break down comes as follows:
       
      1) Trade-Ins Dealers DO NOT WANT: 
      Mini Cooper Jaguar S-Type Land Rover Discovery Mazda CX-7 This is due to the high failure rate of the power-trains.
       
      2) Dealers DO NOT WANT brands that are no longer made, unless they are limited production versions, but for sure they do not want the following:
      PT Cruiser Dodge Grand Caravan SAAB Suzuki Saturn 3) Dealers do not want cars with HIGH COST OF OWNERSHIP:
      Example given is 2010 Ford Focus with a cost of owner ship in first 5yrs of $27,805. 4) Dealers DO NOT WANT auto's with no title.
       
      5) Dealers DO NOT WANT auto's with Funky smells such as:
      Gasoline Smell Burning Smell Sweet Smell Mildew Smell Smoke Smell So what do you think? Do you agree with this or not?

      So MSN hosted Car & Drivers Truck Rankings from Worst to Best and I find much the information as expected but have to question their #1 Truck.
       
      http://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/autos-trucks/every-full-size-truck-ranked-from-worst-to-first/ss-BBkumMw?ocid=UP94DHP#image=1
       
      When they even state that the Porky F150 now is close to competing with the Silverado on weight, does an Aluminum body really qualify it as the #1 best truck in comparison to the Chevy or GMC?
       
      Read the Rankings and stated info, then state your own judgement and let the public decide if this is right!
